“The fact that the incredible Peter Reinhart, one of the foremost bakers in the world, has chosen to work on gluten-free baked goods has made me happy beyond belief. That he and his baking partner, Denene Wallace, have perfected gluten-free, sugar-free baked goods for those who are diabetic or worried about becoming diabetic is truly a joy. This gorgeous book is sure to inspire anyone who wants to bake.”

Being on pretty much a non-grain, non-starch, non-sugar eating plan for over a year, I've been anxiously seeking out a book like this. I am not gluten intolerant, I just eat closer to a paleo-style, but want a bit more variety and was hoping for good cracker and bread recipes. I wasn't disappointed.

I made up the basic crackers, the "Any Nut" bread, and the "Hot Cross Buns" (which we've renamed the "Not Cross Buns"). The basic crackers were very simple to make and were delicious topped with a variety of salt-free seasonings I had sitting around. I made the "Any Nut" bread with walnuts and the minimal amount of sweetener called for. It was delicious and moist. The "Hot Cross Buns" were also quite delicious, but the group consensus was that these had no resemblance to the flavor of Hot Cross Buns, and therefore should not be called that (also, we decided to use a powdered-sugar glaze, powdered artificial sweetener just doesn't cut it as a glaze in my opinion).

This book uses primarily nut flours in almost every recipe. This book is not for people with nut allergies. The recipes also use eggs. This is great for me since I love eggs and nuts, but people should be aware.

Nut flours tend to be expensive (since nuts themselves are expensive) so I don't know if people will make these recipes as much as they would were nut flours the same price as wheat flour; however, that being said, recipes made with nut flours are very filling .. so your baked goods feed more people for the same size, or you will have them around longer.

For those people familiar with Peter Reinhart cookbooks, I can say that the recipes here are much less fiddly and simple to prepare.

I bought this book because I respect Peter Reinhart but even so I did not have high expectations, based on the taste of other sugar free baking I've done. This bread is far better than other recipes I've tried. I'm made the toasting bread, which is VERY dense and not at all sweet. Stick with this bread--it grows on you as the flavor develops after it cools. Also, eating two 1/4 inch slices of this bread for breakfast rather than an English muffin has lowered my fasting glucose reading about 10 points this week. (Even when I put Trader Joe's Cookie Butter 1/2 tsp. on it). I have a pecan loaf that has more Stevia in it in the oven right now and it smells wonderful. Like a prior reviewer, I would like to know exactly how many carbs each recipe produces per serving. I'm suspecting that the bread I just made will not do for everyday consumption because of the difference in sweetener. Also, I had no idea---maybe I didn't read the description carefully enough, which I've been known to do--that this involved nuts. I don't personally have nut allergies, but I've got grandkids with gluten and nut allergies, so this bread can't be baked for them. Nut flour is expensive and, where I live, it is not readily available. I invested in one of the spice/nut grinders recommended by the authors (the Cuisinart) and it works well. You can order the flour from several places, but the shipping costs will probably make it even more expensive as this stuff is not light. Finally, I would advise looking for liquid egg whites. When I first got the book I was in such a hurry to try the recipes that I settled for powdered egg whites that had to be mixed up---what a mess!!! The liquid ones are widely available. I should have waited.

I like to think of myself as an above average baker and cook but going gluten-free is something I've been leaving to everyone else. I've been afraid of the expense that the initial switch will entail and frankly, just plain wondering if any of that gluten-free stuff would taste good. Would it be worth the cost of switching? More importantly, would my husband like it? I decided to take a simple, inexpensive step to begin with and I bought this cook book. The first thing I made was the Carrot Cake on the cover. It is absolutely delicious. Beside all the wonderful recipes Denene Wallace and Peter Reinhart have packed into this amazing cook book, they give step by step instructions on how to make your own gluten-free flours and simple tips to use while baking gluten-free. I'm looking forward to their next cook book! And yes, my husband loved the carrot cake. Thank you for helping me take the first step. --Tracey Willis

Wow!!!! This book has surpassed my expectations by far! The recipes are amazing, unlike other gluten and sugar free recipes they actually taste great.

The Inside Out Peanut Butter Cookies are a very decadent dessert. These tasty cookies have satisfied my chocolate craving and I have lost weight eating them.
They are very easy to make. I recommend using the netrition button on the home page of the books web site to order all of your supplies. It was very easy and very inexpensive shipping.

The Carrot Cake is another of my favorites! It was so easy to make and is so moist and delicious. I decided to add the garnishes to the top because I had guests coming over and wanted it to look more festive. My friends did not know that it was all nut/seed flour until I told them and they were shocked and thrilled because they could have seconds without feeling guilty since it is all protein.

Everything that I have made so far is extremely easy to make. I love not having to use a mixer if I don't want to. I highly recommend this book and I am anxious to buy the next book from these authors!!
