From the Inside Flap
Do you love food? Do you, or someone you love, have to avoid certain foods? Imagine passing on the pizza during your honeymoon in Rome, or skipping the sugar cookie s your sister makes at Christmas. Shauna James Ahern understands your pain-literally. After years of inexplicable exhaustion and endless medical tests, she found relief in her diagnosis of celiac disease. After giving up gluten, she learned how to live well and love food more fully. Now you can, too!
In Gluten-Free Girl, Shauna James Ahern shares the journey that changed her from a typical Gen-X processed-food junkie to a fun-loving foodie who enjoys cooking and living gluten-free-naturally. Readers from around the world have followed her stories and insights on her award-winning blog, glutenfreegirl.com. Now she shows you how to say yes to a gluten-free lifestyle, too, and embrace a whole new world of fresh foods and flavors.
Even if you never learned to cook, Shauna shows you how to feel comfortable in the kitchen. You'll discover (or rediscover) the kick of ginger, the irresistible crunch of fresh greens, and other delicious delights. She gives you dozens of terrific recipes that every9one will love, such as Curried Carrot Soup, Chicken Thighs Braised in Pomegranate Molasses, Crusty Sorghum Bread, and Fig Cookies. Her dishes focus on ingredients that are naturally gluten-free. She has not simply reworked recipes and plugged in gluten-free substitutes-these are original recipes. You'll also find important guidance on navigating everyday life without being "glutenized," from reading between the lines of food labels to traveling and eating out safely and successfully.
Enlivened with funny accounts of Shauna's experiences, this book is as entertaining to read as it is to prop up in the kitchen. Whether she's reminiscing about the Wonder bread and Fried-bologna sandwiches of her childhood or misusing on the pork-chop -shaped mouse pad she won at a professional cooking conference, her stories are lively and interesting.
Part memoir, part best friend giving advice, part cookbook-and all inspiring-Gluten-Free Girl will put the spring back in your step and your diet, one delicious meal at a time. --This text refers to the Digital edition.

Three main points: I found that Ahern's ecstasy over food is better taken in the 'small bites' of her blog, rather than in longer book form. It is exhausting after a chapter or two. Additionally, I think she is rather hard on her parents in general and their food habits in particular, which is off-putting, especially given how supportive Ahern reports them to be once she received a diagnosis. Lastly, the sprinkling of recipes appeared yummy, but many do include dairy,without suggested substitutions, making them unusable for the lactose-intolerant (a very common issue in the GF community).
This is not a cookbook, but a biography of the author and how her mother tried to murder her with convenience food in the 1970's. Ok, there's a few recipes, but you have to wade through her life story to find them. The book finishes with the greatest love story ever told (her own), and an attempt to find closure with her mommy issues. Don't bother ordering unless you slavishly read her blog; the book was just plain useless.
