Just as valuable as the recipes are her comments about her experiences and the good humor she brings to daily life as a celiac. She shares just the right balance of honesty and encouragement. The explanations at the front of the book about celiac desease, do's and don'ts, references, etc. are good for synthesizing what I already knew and for sharing with friends and family so they can understand too. Great cookbook!
Happy Celiac Cook
Now, with this amazing flour recipe, I can throw open the doors to my kitchen and cook with abandon! She has put the excitement back into cooking for me. THANK YOU!
And to top it off, the graham crackers taste better than store bought! I can't wait for a full line of Nearly Normal in the grocery store!
Jules Shepard, whose credentials as a successful career woman are impressive, is not an intended chef! She is a celiac who has succeeded in balancing family preferences with medical necessities. The book includes a brief history of her personal experiences in discovering the root of long-term misdiagnosed illness and her exceptional response to it, resulting in this book, and perhaps helping people sort out their own dietary needs.
Best of all, this is an on-going effort. Her website updates this book and will include new recipes as she uncovers them. BUY THE BOOK~AND LET HER KNOW YOUR EXPERIENCES!
I appreciate Jules giving out her flour mix recipe as I have always liked to cook from scratch. I have had mixed results with the gluten-free pre-made mixes that are on the market. My daughter is gluten-intolerant and very picky about texture and taste. The chocolate chip cookie recipe is a real winner with her. I'm looking forward to trying out other recipes and using the flour mix in favorite family recipes. Thanks Jules!
The fact that Jules gives us the recipe for her own gluten-free flour is astounding b/c it is truly interchangeable with any recipe calling for wheat flour. Have you checked the prices of and tasted other gluten-free flours recently? Costly and nothing to brag about, so I don't understand the previous reviewer's comment about the book being nothing but a plug for her product. Her only 'product' is providing information and recipes for those wanting to cook and eat gluten free.
Go ahead and use the flour recipe found in the introduction to make the scones on pg.94; then you can thank Jules for the generousity of sharing her flour recipe (that she could easily charge for) because you really can't tell that they're gluten-free. And as for the dried beef comment --all I can say is, "where's the beef?" Nowhere in this book could I find a recipe calling for dried beef because, as the reviewer said, e[...]
