I've found that her recipes all turn out really well. She calls for a starch called Expandex, which I can't get, but she says the recipes will come out fine just using the same amount of her flour blend, so I do that. They may be even better with Expandex but who knows or cares, they work great just with this blend.
Her French Bread using the cold start oven method is MARVELLOUS!!!! I can have it start to finish in 45 minutes including baking time!!!! It is as easy as whipping up cake batter, goes together using my little hand mixer in a bowl. Dumped out and shaped onto parchment. Bake immediately using a cold oven start. It is moist, tender and smells and tastes WONDERFUL! Slice hot, slather with butter and enjoy, then let the rest cool, slice and freeze. It will come out of the freezer still feeling and tasting fresh, moist, springy and breadlike!
That recipe alone is worth the price of the book but the pancakes, waffles and muffins are all great too.
I needed a basic resource to look up a gluten free version that I can whip up quick and easy in my home kitchen, that won't cost the earth and will please the non celiac members of the family since I am not making a split kitchen. If I cook, it's for EVERYONE so it has to work well. Her recipes, and that of
Bette Hagman, Elizabeth Hasselback, and Elizabeth Barbone are the ones I turn to all the time.
The one bone I have to pick is I'd like to see the nutrient info in a sidebar with the recipe, because gluten free involves a lot of carbs, heavily refined and the carb content can be a problem for those with diabetes or those who are using a low carb diet to control auto immune issues other than celiac. Both diabetes and auto immune disorders occur in the celiac population at a fairly high rate along with allergies. Bette Hagman is including this info in her newer editions, and I notice Carol does this with one of her other newer books.
She has a smaller "100" recipe book with the ones from this cookbook that people ask for most. I bought that, and her Quick and Easy cookbooks as well but if you ask me, I think this 1000 recipe book is the cookbook of hers to get first.
The recipes work, you get all of them, and they are easy to adapt to home made mixes which is what she does a lot of in the Quick and Easy book. You aren't missing any of the great recipes that didn't make the cut for the 100 recipe book.
All that said here is the kicker. This is a doorstop of a book. Huge and heavy. So I got a second version on my Kindle which is light and easy to look things up in, and it's great to cook from too if you lay the kindle open with a plastic wrap over it (or inside a clear bag). Page turns are easy, you can enlarge the print and the index is wonderful on the kindle version.
I don't much use the sections on gluten free main dishes, but there are still some things like quiche or souffle that it's nice to refer to in a giant gluten free cookbook. There are a lot of recipes that I completely ignore. For example pasta sauces. I prefer to use my favourite Italian authors for that, and find a good gluten free pasta and carry on with Giada di Laurentiis or Marcella Hazan. If a food does use a lot of flour, I like to look it up in here first before deciding to go with her version or a simple adaptation. (the front part of this book covers adapting your old fabourites).
This is kind of a Joy of Cooking, Gluten Free style.

It does not have pictures, but anyway, the amount of recipes makes it worth it.
