Praise for Simply . . . Gluten-free Desserts

"Enticing photographs and out-of-the-ordinary recipes." --The Record (Bergen County, New Jersey)

"I found myself dog-earing recipe after recipe of tempting treats. What really drew me in was that 60 percent of the recipes are naturally gluten-free." --Laura Byrne Russell, The Oregonian

"Simply . . . Gluten-free Desserts is all about accessibility...And if you're unsure about anything, a technique or ingredient, the front of the book includes practical guidelines on both." --Epicurious

"You’re in for a real treat with Simply . . . Gluten-free Desserts. There is a tremendous breadth of variety; something to try for every occasion, including just a treat for yourself after a long day. Enjoy!"
--Dr. Vicki Peterson, author of The Gluten Effect

"Kicinski offers recipes for virtually all the desserts that so many people with celiac disease have given up." --Today's Diet & Nutrition

About the Author

CAROL KICINSKI is the author of the food blog Simply . . . Gluten-Free and the book Simply . . . Gluten-free Desserts. She lives in Florida.


More About the Author

Carol Kicinski founded Simply...Gluten Free in 2007 as a gluten-free recipe and lifestyle blog and website. Its purpose is to educate, assist and inspire those with celiac disease or intolerance to gluten, dairy, peanut, grain or other allergy elements, or those with vegan preferences. To date, she has motivated millions to live HAPPY allergen-free lives!

Carol's core philosophy is "Look at the world of food in terms of what I CAN eat - not what I can't!"

Her recipe motto is "Gluten-free recipes that are not just "good for gluten-free" but just plain GOOD, period!!"

In 2010 Carol started the highly successful Gluten-free Global Community - putting hundreds of gluten-free bloggers World Wide in communication with each other. She also pioneered "gluten-free" in China in 2009.

Carol is America's first gluten-free (only) TV Chef with a monthly segment on the NBC Tampa market based nationally syndicated show Daytime where she has appeared since July 2009. (Daytime is nationally syndicated to 1.1 million households.)

Her cookbook, Simply...Gluten Free Desserts, (Thomas Dunne Books, 2011) is rich with 150 delectable recipes for cupcakes, cookies, pies, sweet breads, puddings, cakes and ice creams - all gf and many dairy-free as well.

Carol's current recipe development and consultant client list includes the Western Pistachio Association, the Northwest Pear Bureau, The National Cherry Institute, Kinnikinnick, Wholesome Sweeteners, Sunbutter, Solo Foods, Follow Your Heart, Nature's Earthly Choice, and others.

She recently completed contributing recipe development for Cooking Light - The Gluten-Free Cookbook: Simple Food Solutions for Everyday Meals (Cooking Light, 2011).

Carol also developed her own high quality pastry gluten-free flour blend that TASTES and BAKES like regular flour.

In a professional career prior to her recipe development, Carol was ahead of the sustainable energy curve as she was the Financial Controller for a $32M Solar Corporation.

As a humanitarian and adventurer, Carol has assisted the National Red Cross around the world and was one of the first responders at Katrina's Central Command assisting the troops.

She's lived to tell about being charged by elephants and rhinos (literally) and has dived with Great White sharks in Africa.

Fun, interesting and adventurous, Carol's most rewarding passion is making "that great recipe" and having someone else make it, and love it!

The recipes are well laid out and directions are easy to follow.
Lexie
I love the fact that this is not just a book with recipes, it has great tips for getting the meal on the table all at once, something I struggle with.
Jim Riley
You don't have to be gluten-free to enjoy the wonderful recipes that author Carol Kicinski creates in this book.

The "Simply" in "Simply ... Gluten-Free Quick Meals" doesn't just make for a catchy title. The recipes in this cookbook truly are quick and easy to prepare. I have spent the last week cooking out of this book and am super impressed. The recipes are not over the top, which as a busy mom, I appreciate. I had to chuckle because I can totally relate to Carol when she writes that she is "always looking for time-savers and shortcuts, but ironically I am also a person who tries to cram as many activities into each day as humanly possible." I have to think that these are recipes Carol has cooked over the years as she raised two boys and that she has perfected to a T from a time-to-prep standpoint.

The chapters I have already fallen head over heels in love with are:

* Simple Suppers
* Easy Entertaining
* Pantry Raid

Simple Suppers and Easy Entertaining offer up complete meals--usually a main, a side, and a dessert--that can be made in under an hour. The Pantry Raid chapter I plan to turn to on those nights I have nothing in mind for dinner and the clock is striking four. Recipes in this chapter can be made by raiding your pantry and fridge and using ingredients you may already have on hand.

In our home we deal with a handful of food intolerances and I review books from this standpoint. Recipes in this book do call for dairy, however the author has provided substitutions for dairy (such as coconut or rice milk) and suggestions for other substitutions such arrowroot for cornstarch. So there are ways to work around allergies and intolerances and still cook out of this book--the only exception being the handful of recipes that call for eggs. But still, there are plenty of other recipes in the book that we can enjoy.

OK, I'm a gluten-free vegetarian, and this is not a vegetarian book, but still, there are so many wonderful recipes for people like me! I've just tried the Whole Grain Biscuit Mix and used it for a variation on the Whole Grain Muffin recipe and I can attest to the fact that these recipes are easy and delicious. I'm dying to try the Dairy-Free Coconut Pie, and the Breakfast Quesadillas and the Vegan Breakfast Bars, and for the meat-centered dishes I just think "tempeh or tofu?" and I happily keep reading and learning from the author's excellent recipes.

Awesome!
I so love Carol's cookbooks and her wonderful approach to making eating Gluten Free
a much easier job. Aside from being somewhat lazy when it comes to cooking, having
to put the time in to due it Gluten Free has been a chore.

However, with Carol's great quick recipes, in this book as well as all
the great ones I get from her website [...]
I am not so adverse to the challenge of it now.

Loved the Dessert cookbook but this one I love just a slight bit more
(only because I know have to take off the pounds I put on trying from
trying all the great desserts) :-)

Look forward to many more great Ideas

This is a brilliant book. I love how it's sorted into meals so all of the recipes for that meal are together and I don't have to go thumbing through the book. What a great idea. I've made some of these recipes too and they are delicious. Happy to give it to my clients too.

My best friend has Celiac disease and this makes it so easy to whip something up when she's coming over! Lots of great ideas and all very simple, comfort, healthful foods. I just bought her a copy for a wedding present! Definitely recommend.

Many people use gluten-free as a way to diet.
But for those like my husband, it's a MUST because
anything with gluten in it makes him deathly ill.
Haven't tried all the recepies, but so far they've
been great.
