I really think that I could have fun reviewing cookbooks!  I have not been diagnosed with celiac or with wheat allergies but choose to go wheat free because I feel so much better.  This cookbook was perfect timing.

This book was easy to follow, there are charts of what's gluten free, what's safe and unsafe.  The benefits of being gluten free and so much more.  I found it very educational, I learned a lot with the main thing being that with a gluten free diet I don't have to give up taste.  Nor is it a lot of extra work, I can go to the local bulk store and purchase what I need.

I tried a number of recipes in this book.

Honeyoat Loaf was a favorite, even the family enjoyed it.  With a touch of coconut flour it had a little taste of the tropics.  The added bonus was no sugar, but made with honey, so if you have sugar issues this one works well.

Garden Fresh Minestrone Soup, a nice healthy recipe with brown rice pasta.  This reminded me that I could use some of my own recipes and use gluten free pasta instead.    

Quinoa, cucumber mango salad with sweet cilantro vinaigrette was a nice refreshing salad and healthy to boot.

I will continue to try different recipes as well as recommend this cookbook.
