This is not just a gluten free cookbook. Anyone with intolerances to gluten, dairy, soy or eggs will find this cookbook a great help. I've never cooked without eggs and was skeptical about eliminating them from my baked goods. I've made Lemon Poppy Seed cakes, shortcake and snickerdoodles. They were just as good as those made with real eggs.
Tammy has included descriptions of flours, starches, sweeteners, oils and fats plus substitutions for eggs and dairy. Her kitchen tips will help you save time and money. There is also a short list of resources at the end. This book is a feast for the eyes. The pictures will makes you want to run to your kitchen and start cooking immediately. That's what I did and I'm delighted with the results.
The only suggestions I have are for the publisher. I found it was difficult to read the fractions in the recipes as they were so small. A larger font would be much easier to see. I would also add an index that was alphabetical. The picture index was nice, but it was by page number so it took too long to find what I wanted.
(Edited to add: I just wanted to respond to the review that said the breakfasts were all quinoa recipes. That is simply not true. While there are a few quinoa recipes, which I appreciate because of the variety, there are about 25 breakfast recipes and I think only about 4 of them are for quinoa based breakfasts. She has muffins, pancakes, sausages, etc. Many, many breakfast favorites.)
Also, made the chicken salad yesterday and it was really good. I added apple instead of grapes.
The chocolate chip cookies? Wonderful! You can eat the raw dough with no worries (no eggs), and I like to microwave one or two balls of dough, straight from the freezer, whenever I want a quick treat. My non-GF kids love them too.
Anybody who has children who have been diagnosed knows how hard this is on kids. Thankfully, there are books like these that make everything better.
The pancakes, waffles, english muffins, chocolate chip cookies, brownies are to die for! My kids, husband and friends say they taste delicious.
Word of advice, I learned this the hard way. First: Only use Bob's Mill flours and starches except the teff flour which you can get at Teff Co for a great price. I ordered from a different company and had to throw away a batch of cookies and pancakes. Second: Store your flours and starches in the fridge. They can go rancid.
Also, the author of this book has a website where you can actually contact her via e-mail and she actually responds. She helped me figure out what was going on with my flours and answered my questions promptly. That is definitely a plus for any newbie.
Thank you Tammy and I hope and pray you continue the good work for families like us!
