Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"Whether the chef in your house is five or 105, this book will prove to be an inspiration for enjoying time in the kitchen--even if yours is limited--as well as for making nutritious, delicious, wheat-free, gluten-free concoctions!"
--Danna Korn, founder of R.O.C.K. (Raising Our Celiac Kids) and author of Kids with Celiac Disease

"Provides a perfect opportunity to learn to cook gluten-free and eat well with recipes that break the age barrier."
--Diane Eve Paley, President, and Mary Schluckebier, Executive Director, Celiac Sprue Association/USA, Inc.

If your child has been diagnosed with celiac disease, you know how important it is to avoid serving foods with wheat, rye, or barley gluten. But most kids are notoriously finicky eaters. How do you keep out the bad stuff while still ensuring your child gets the necessary nutrients? The Wheat-Free, Gluten-Free Cookbook for Kids and Busy Adults is the answer to your dilemma.

Written by celiac-disease authority Connie Sarros, this wheat- and gluten-free cookbook addresses the needs of kids with celiac disease and the often busy adults who prepare their meals. The recipes run the gamut from simple treats to hearty meals. In plain, kid-friendly language, the author leads youngsters step-by-step through the process of creating safe treats and meals for themselves.

This wheat-free, gluten-free cookbook also includes:

  • Explanations and definitions of terms and ingredients
  • Helpful hints for meal planning
  • Nutritional breakdowns for each recipe
  • Simple dishes kids can prepare for themselves

This important cookbook helps children build a strong foundation for a future of living and eating wheat- and gluten-free.

Being new to the gluten-free diet I have been very disappointed in the majority of the GF cookbooks. The ingredients are often a challenge to find, are expensive, and frankly just taste gross or have a funky texture. The more ingredients that are different from what we "used to eat" the more disappointing the outcome. Of all the cookbooks I've tried so far (8 of the "mainstream" ones) this one has the most familiar ingredients and "normal" foods. My 5 year old has enjoyed everything I have made from this book so far and has been excited to eat something GF that actually tastes like what he used to eat. The recipes are simple, fast, affordable, and best of all we actually enjoy food again! THANK YOU CONNIE SARROS!

It has been very difficult for me to eat properly since my diagnosis. I never cooked before, and rely on eating out or other people cooking. This book helped even me! Trust me, if I can follow these recipes, anyone can. I was surprised how easy and delicious they were. Thanks!

If you're looking for a be-all, end-all cookbook for celiac/wheat free cooking, keep looking. If, however, you are looking for a great starter cookbook that has a great number of quick easy recipes that taste good, then don't hesitate to buy this book. Everything is written for kids, so it's easy to follow and the recipes are super easy and quick. It covers everything from drinks, desserts, to all the staples like dinner, appetizers, and such.

My wife has celiacs and was never really concerned with cooking prior to being diagnosed. She loves this book. I think that this book is really tailored for the individual that is new to being gluten free and was never much of a cook. Someone who is now forced to cook because of the disease. No more hamburger helper, pasta roni, or frozen dinners. Most of the recipes are very simple (my wife can do them) and fairly quick.

If you were a seasoned cook you could probably come up with most of these recipes your self. You could take a gourmet cookbook and change things around and make a gf meal with it. I think that once you have had to deal with gf for a longer period of time this book would become less useful.

I purchased this cookbook as a birthday gift for our 9 year old granddaugter who has Celiac's disease. After looking through it I found it to be full of helpful recipes for kids which is often hard to come up with different things. She was excited when she opened her gift set of her own baking set with the 2 cookbooks I ordered inside. I think she could hardly wait to try them.
