More About the Author

Having the condition known as Celiac Disease, I am required to maintain a strict gluten-free diet. But, like everyone, I want to live life to the fullest and not feel encumbered by the dietary constraints of a lifelong disease. The best way to overcome the initial "trauma" of finding out that you can no longer eat all your old favorite foods is to find replacements that are just as good (if not better) and safe for your new gluten-free diet.

When I was first afflicted with Celiac Disease and had to adopt a gluten-free diet, the few pre-made/commercial gluten-free products available were created using the same few ingredients and approaches that produced the same sub-par results for decades. Recipe available at the time (especially desserts and breads) were nothing short of awful too, and I was not willing to spend the rest of my life living without the high-quality desserts and baked-goods that I had enjoyed before developing this gluten-allergy!

This all motivated my wife and I to invest a couple years into developing recipes and our Gluten-Free Gourmet Desserts book -- and, the results spoke for themselves. We were the first to offer a GF desserts book showing each and every dessert baked according to the recipes therein and in full-color, and our print version went to market as the first money-back satisfaction-guaranteed GF recipes book (something unheard of before). We definitely helped raised the bar for gluten-free foods and continue to work to that end.

I am quite thankful I had a supportive family that stuck it out from my early "vision" (perhaps "dream" is more appropriate) of the cookbook through the nearly two years of recipe creation, baking, photography, and publishing that followed. Since then, I have published additional (free) recipes on "The Gluten-Free Blog" and our original "Gluten-Free-Desserts" website to further help others quickly make the transition to an enjoyable and fulfilling gluten-free life and gluten free diet. I write blogs on topics including gluten-free product reviews, Celiac Disease science / medical information and news summaries, gluten-free recipes (from breakfast items to dinner to dessert), baking ingredients and tips, and related GF discussions.

These gluten-free recipes are fantastic! I could not believe I was eating gluten free. Some of this stuff tasted better than the best "real" cakes I have had, and everything I tried was truly delicious. Highly recommended! I also found the publisher's web-site, SureTalent-Books.com, Gluten-Free & Wheat-Free Gourmet Desserts and now have a print version for myself and a friend that also prefers printed copy.

I recently found out that I am sensitive to wheat products and began trying out various gluten/wheat- items at health food stores. Not only were they expensive, but they didn't taste like the real thing. The selection was limited and often tasted like cardboard. But then I came across this book.. even my fiance, who doesn't have a wheat/gluten allergy, couldn't tell that he was eating gluten-free! I'm working my way through the book. So far we've tried the cheesecake, the lemon berry upside down cake, and the brownies (don't cook them too long or they'll dry out. We did that the first time since we didn't realize our oven runs hot and just had it with ice cream - still delicious). Amazingly, we were able to find all of the ingredients at our local H.E.B (grocery store) and didn't have to go to make the drive out to Whole Foods.

Love this book. It really made the transition from eating gluten-free less painful and more enjoyable.

I am the gluten-free person in our household, but everyone in the household absolutely LOVES the cakes and desserts I bake using these recipes. That is a first! I now bake cakes for all sorts of parties and events and people never realize they are gluten-free unless I tell them.

There are so many fantastic desserts to choose from, and everything I have baked so far is wonderful. I started at the beginning and just kept going. Carrot cake: excellent! Chocolate Cakes: amazing. Cheesecakes: decadent and delicious. Boston cream pie: wow! And the biscotti: what a treat for taking with me to work for snacks. The PB cookies are the best I have ever had. And, gluten-free cream puffs that are just unreal. You get the picture.

Speaking of pictures, each recipe comes with a beautiful color picture that is really what you end up with if you bake the recipe and follow the directions. I have made quite a few items from this book, and they consistently come out as shown. The recipes are also easy to follow and they read like any recipe from any regular cookbook. There are no proprietary "flour blends" to keep on hand, but instead each recipe lists the ingredients particular to it and the results are MUCH better than I have ever had from recipes that apply the same ingredient proportions to every recipe. There is a definite focus on maximizing the taste and texture per each recipe.

You will certainly enjoy the results you get from these recipes, and even more important is the fact that you can feed these desserts to ALL your family and friends and they will enjoy the desserts as much as you do. Definitely a quality book.

I'm so excited to see that this cookbook is now being offered as a kindle book! How wonderful! I've had the hard copy for quite a while and have been so happy with the quality of the recipes and how accurate and helpful the pictures of each recipe are.

I've often tried out the cakes, cookies, and other goodies I've baked from this cookbook on friends and family who are not on gluten free diets, and they can never tell that what I'm feeding them is gluten free! It's clear that whoever came up with the recipes was unwilling to sacrifice taste or texture when coming up with gluten free recipes--the cakes are moist, rich, and textured like a regular wheat containing cake, and the cookies, biscotti, and other goodies I've tried all live up to their wheat containing counterparts in taste and texture.

Given how expensive commercial, pre-made or boxed gluten free products are still, and how low quality many of them are, this cookbook is a really great deal. You'll be able to make tons of really satisfying food. And, with the recipes ranging from really easy to moderately challenging, both the most practiced and the most unpracticed cooks can find cooking satisfaction in this gluten free desserts book.

Bottom line is that this is a great gluten free cookbook. I recommend you try everything, but especially the prize winning carrot cake...YUM!

I was not only impressed with how beautifully this book was on my coffee table (soft bound copy)The recipes are to die for. Well researched combinations of ingredients and a gutsy risk taking kind of flare for inventive baking, this book is not only good for the gluten free...it is good for all bakers who want impressive desserts to share at the end of great meals.
BRAVO!

Great recipes. I have the print-version of this book and it is a favorite! I can't believe the gluten free desserts made from this book actually taste better than food with gluten!

There is a full size color photo for every recipe. The great thing is when you follow the recipe, the product looks just like it does in the book! I hate cookbooks that have recipes that look great and your finished product looks nothing like the picture. I have made the carrot cake, lemon blueberry bundt cake, chocolate torte (pictured on the cover) and almond biscotti. Not only can I not tell it's gluten free, but it tastes much better than other wheat desserts I have made in the past. I have multiple gluten free cookbooks and this is my favorite by far. In the introduction Michael discusses the problem gluten free folks face such as; using expensive and uncommon ingredients as well as odd textured or tasting finished products. It's so nice to have someone write a cookbook that understands the frustration I feel with recipes that don't stand up to their claims. I highly recommend this cookbook to anyone, gluten free or not!!
