I jumped at the chance to review this cookbook. We eat gluten-free in our house out of necessity because my son is celiac, so I am always looking for new, good recipes. This cookbook has recipes that are free of dairy, soy and cane sugar, in addition to being gluten-free. There are 100 recipes which include healthier versions of favorites such as cinnamon rolls, muffins, cakes, cookies, biscuits, and much more. There is a great full-color picture for every recipe, and the personal stories and comments make this cookbook seem like an old friend has put it together just for you.
I tried several of these recipes to review this cookbook, and I'm looking forward to trying out many more. I can see myself turning to this cookbook quite a bit for new recipes and to replace family favorites with great healthier versions. If you eat gluten-free or like healthier recipes, this would be a great cookbook to add to your collection. If you know someone who eats gluten-free or trying to cut out sugar, this would make a nice little gift.
