This cookbook does have a lot of good information in it which is nice...and it has few recipes which I will probably try to use.... but I wouldn't say that it will be the one with the most bent pages. :)

I'm only 23, so I would imagine that I will qualify as a "young person", but some of the recipes were so basic that they probably shouldn't have been included. However, that being said, there are a few that are worthy of being included in our "rotation".

I like the fact that she is increasing Celiac awareness and that she provides bonus information. I just wish that there were some juicier recipes in there!

I found the book to be very basic yet informative. It had some good recipes, but I guess I was expecting a little more.

A wonderful book for all and especially for people who live alone both young and old. Disregard Maltin's "young person" focus. Regardless of your age you will enjoy reading the book and using the recipes. Maltin writes with a practical and humorous view of reality. There are a lot of great tips and good advice in addition to the recipes. I am a senior citizen who lives alone who has cooked a lot of complicated recipes--this is one of my favorite books.

Beyond Rice Cakes is a fantastic book, and I don't even have Celiac Disease. The recipes are easy to make and taste great too. Maltin's positive attitude about being diagnosed with the disease, and her proactive approach to treating it and helping others to treat it is incredible. Her humerous story telling in this book makes it an even better read and should help convince anyone with the disease that it's best to laugh about it...and eat some fantastic gluten-free foods in the meantime.

I've suffered from celiacs for years, and have been unable to find a cookbook with more than one or two recipes I can follow to a tee. "Beyond Rice Cakes" has renewed my palate. Now, instead of dreading meals, I look forward to the delicious options available to us gluten-free girls!

I bought this cookbook with the expectation that it would provide good recipes based on the reviews it received from others. I am very disappointed in it. I am not new to celiac disease or gluten intolerance so did not need nor want the 55+ pages of information about that. I also didn't need nor want to hear the author's stories about dates she had in the past. I didn't need nor want 6 pages of listings for where you can buy gluten free wedding cakes all over the US. Who would need or want that information anyway? I wanted a good cookbook - that's all. This cookbook is DEFINITELY a YOUNG person's guide and written to that level. It has some decent recipes in it that I'll probably try but a lot of them are too simple. For example there are recipes for a veggie platter and another for a cheese plate. Veggie platter simply says cut up a variety of vegetables and arrange them on a plate and the cheese plate is the same but uses cheese vs. vegetables. Who would need those recipes anyway? In addition the recipes are presented in a disorganized manner. They're in random order in 4 sections and there's no index so you have to just flip though all the recipes in a section to find something you might want to use - not convenient at all. And there are many, many unhealthy sounding recipes in this book that take sour cream, cream cheese, sour cream and cream cheese together, and all sorts of cheeses. If a person has a cholesterol or weight issue a lot of the recipes would have to be altered to make them less hazardous to ones health. I bought Nicole Hunn's Gluten Free on a Shoestring at the same time as this book and find it fantastic in every respect.
