A Coffee Table Book,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: So, What Can I Eat Now?!: Living Without Dairy, Soy, Eggs, and Wheat (Paperback)
Unfortunately, this is really more of a coffee table recipe book. More than half the book is full page size photographs and solid colored pages introducing each section. We were very dismayed to find such recipes as how to make brown rice, couscous and a cup of herb tea along with a full page picture of each. One can get these recipes off the side of the item box. The book's simple lunch recipes for sandwiches or soups use store bought GF rice bread & broth (some of which have casein or soy, so you still have to read your labels before you buy). If you cannot boil water or cook at all, then this may make a good starter book.

Thank you for your feedback, I appreciate it. I just wanted to add a little clarity for others who may read the comments. All ingredients used to prepare these recipes were 100% gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free and egg-free, as well as artificial preservative free. There is no recipe for couscous because it comes from wheat; instead I have a recipe for quinoa, which is gluten-free. All recipes are unique, based upon my countless cooking experiments in my kitchen.

This recipe book is absolutely fabulous, I love the full page color images that she has with each individual recipe and how all the instructions are clear and precise. Some of the items in the book are pretty addicting e.g (butternut squash, and oven fried chix) and has become part of my weekly dinner choices. It makes me feel good when I can cook a good wholesome meal and it actually taste good and flavorful. I'm enjoying the recipes so until I'm considering buying a few more and giving them out for christmas gifts...

Thank you so much for the feedback. I greatly appreciate it! I'm so glad that the recipes that you tried worked for you---they were amongst my FAVs too! As you continue to go through the book, don't forget to try the Cod and Pesto recipe, it is a hit with many customers including myself! Again thank you for inviting me into your kitchen!
