Availability: Out of stock


Quick Overview

This is an excellent cookbook with easy instructions to make totally gluten free foods. It helps you know what foods are truly gluten free; how to stock your shelf with necessary items to accomplish your gluten free diet, how to modify recipes to gluten free, and much, much more. You will have recipes from breads, snacks, main meals to desserts. This cookbook was rightly named...life tastes good again!

It also contains dairy and egg substitutions! This is the perfect book for those with food allergies. The authors have food allergies and many family members with Celiac. This prompted them to create recipes to feed their family without encountering allergic reactions to the foods. Their first goal was to make recipes that would not only be healthy but taste good. I was at a seminar with the authors. They were amazing! They brought samples from their cookbook and the food was delicious! There is truly hope for those suffering with major food allergies to have palatable meals once again. Enjoy!

Tips for Modifying Recipes from Kirsti

1. TRY IT. And then TRY IT AGAIN. 2. Don’t try to adjust a regular bread recipe by simply exchanging flours. It will not work, and you will get discouraged. There are several fabulous GF bread recipes that have been thoroughly tested—modify one of those to fit your needs instead. 3. Use recipes that are moist already—they hold together better. 4. Recipes that are supposed to be drier (like cornbread) also work well; no one can tell there’s rice flour in them. 5. Use Featherlight mix. It seems to act and taste the most like wheat flour. (Hagman’s Bean Flour mix also acts much like wheat, but sometimes has a funny aftertaste.) 6. DON’T FORGET THE XANTHAN GUM. It’s necessary. 7. For cakes: if your first attempt turns out too dry or heavy, try adding about ½ cup applesauce, mayonnaise, or sour cream. 8. If you have problems with lactose, substitute yogurt for buttermilk, and use lactose-free milk. Things will still turn out.
