“Fried chicken, brownies, sliders, even spaghetti and meatballs and mile-high lasagna all gluten-free?

Nicely done, blondie!”—Rachael Ray

Where this book shines in comparison with other gluten free books, is that the recipes taste great, the food really does look, feel and taste like the original gluten containing version, only a bit better even. Nicely done!
I wish the nutritional info was included. I calculated the carbs myself for those recipes and the muffins. Surprisingly the muffins were higher in calories and carbs than the cupcakes, no doubt due to the coconut flour. Because of the lack of nutrition info, I'm knocking this down one star. It's months later, and I'm finding that unless I've calculated those carbs and fiber etc, I'm not bothering with the recipes. I have other cookbooks now that have the nutrient info already done for me. 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.
I own Betty Hagman's Gluten Free Gourmet books 1 and 2 as well as Carol Fenster's 1000 Gluten Free Recipes plus a few other G Free cookbooks. Bette Hagman's newer editions all contain nutrient info, and some of Carol Fenster's along with the new Betty Crocker Gluten Free cookbook.
If you hope this book will have recipes for basics like breads, biscuits or tortillas, you will be disappointed. Many of her recipes assume you have access to gluten free breads, bagels, tortillas etc. For those I suggest Carol Fenster 1000 Gluten Free recipes. That book has a slick recipe for French Bread along with many other basic standards and doesn't assume you have access to anything ready made.
My own aim in my kitchen has been to produce easy food that tastes as good as the gluten version, has some fiber to it (a common problem with gluten free flours is the high carb content and lack of fiber), won't put me into carb overload and basically doesn't cost a second mortgage to feed everyone with since I'm not going to have a split kitchen cooking separate gluten free things for me and "normal" stuff for the rest.
Hence the need for normal good tasting foods. This book is a great addition to my gluten free cookbook library. But not as the primary book to look up how to make a gluten free version of everything. For that, Carol Fenster is better. For a smaller simpler "does it all" try the Betty Crocker gluten free cookbook which has the nutrient info in sidebars with each recipe.
And as for the sugar/refined carbs problem, this isn't a solution nor does she try to be. She does try to use higher fiber flours like sorghum, brown rice, black bean flour, and millet, and she occasionally uses coconut flour, flax seeds ground in a coffee mill, but as a whole these are not going to be appropriate for anyone needing to keep sugars down. It is a good start though, and like Carol Fenster, she seems aware of the problems of eating too much overly refined starch.
For example she does use coconut flour (which is high in fiber and low in carbs) but it's benefits are diluted by added sugar, other flours and starches. In the yellow cake/cupcakes, I used 1/4 cup of sugar and 3/4 cup of Splenda. That was a little too sweet still so I think it would work with less Splenda. I know you need sugar for texture too, so that is why I kept some in.
Nothing is perfect. She did what she set out to do, create a family friendly cookbook that doesn't have to apologize for it's gluten free recipes. They are tasty and work well. Nobody would know the difference. And most cookbook recipes are sweeter than I like, which is easy to fix.
But if you are primarily looking for something that is easier on the blood sugar with high fiber and gluten free then try Bruce Fife's book on baking with coconut flour or "20 Incredible Coconut Flour Recipes by Marissa Paine" as they might be a better fit. I really like those two. Also look at any of the Primal or Paleo cookbooks as they avoid grains, but do create things with coconut or almond flour.
I don't think a single cookbook can be all things to all people. This book does a very good job of creating family pleasing foods that everyone can enjoy. No need to inform guests that the reason the cake is gritty is because it's gluten free.
You don't have to apologize for or explain this food. For example Elizabeth's Yellow Cake is delicious, tender and really really tasty! This book delivers on it's promise to create the foods that people like to eat, just that they also happen to be gluten free. Well done.
I am allergic to nightshade family foods like potato as well as gluten. I was hoping for more ideas instead of having to do trial and lots of error. In general, we now eat meat, poultry, fish and some vegetables. So, we'll stick with our soups and stews. I have a good recipe for french type breads. I just wanted a few treats for my son, but this book did not offer what we were looking for.
