About the Author
Amy Green, M.Ed., runs the website, Simply Sugar & Gluten-Free where she shares her passion for healthy living. Over the years Green has learned that eating healthier doesn’t equal deprivation, has lived free from refined sugars and wheat since 2004 and, as a result, is maintaining a 60+ pound weight loss. A former elementary teacher and current small business owner, Amy is now a full time culinary arts student. She lives with her husband and four dogs in Dallas, Texas where she teaches local sugar-free, gluten-free cooking classes.

Her very own 'Basic Flour Blend' - calls for garbanzo-fava bean flour, sorghum flour, potato starch and tapioca starch. Now who happens to have these ingredients in their kitchen? She also calls for agave nectar - which we know isn't good for us.
I want a cook book that is all inclusive - with photos or at the bare minimum one that includes the nutrition facts: calories, fat breakdown, cholesterol, sodium, carbs, fiber and protein. For any one to publish a cookbook isn't worthy of purchasing it. For this reason, I give this this book a 1. I don't like being blindsided and this book should state on the front cover: no nutritional facts and no pictures are contained herein.
I've bought these wonderful cookbooks from amazon.com that you might find helpful - they ALL include the nutrition facts: Dr. Neal Barnard's Program for Reversing Diabetes; The New Glucose Revolution Low GI Vegetarian Cookbook; Better Homes & Gardens Biggest Book of Diabetic Recipes and The Sparkpeople Cookbook.
Be frugal like she states many times she is: don't buy the book.
I was surprised how thick the book is, and have loved the recipes I have tried so far. The only thing I would change is to add pictures of these dishes - I am a very visual person, and love to see pics of the food. BUT this book makes up for that in great recipes and info on how to get started. Gluten Free cooking is daunting, and even downright terrifying at first, especially learning about the dozens of different flours that can be quite expensive! This book makes it easy to understand, and she includes a recipe for an All-Purpose GF flour mix that is used in many recipes. There is a great section in the back of the book on each of the flours, sweeteners and various ingredients that is very helpful. I LOVE this book, and am excited to try each recipe.
I use stevia instead of sugar as it has no calories or carbs and doesn't raise blood sugar.
Also, the author, Amy Green, has a website,[...], and will regularly and generously send you free recipes. She answers emails and you come to feel you know her and she is a friend. And she is a fellow Texas, she lives in Dallas.
Anyone who thinks they can't cook should buy this book and they will quickly and easily see they can cook tasty and easy food and impress their friends and family.
A good first cook book.
However, as the title states, the cookbook is full of wonderfully quick, wholesome food recipes. Snacks, desserts, main dishes, soups, breakfasts, and even condiments are just some of the chapters found inside. There is also a Kitchen Guide section that has pages of sugar-free, gluten-free essentials for your pantry and a chart of ingredient substitutions. The author has a great blog that I've been following and trying recipes from already, so I know that her ideas in this book will cook-up great also.
