I want to share two fantastic gluten-free cookbooks to have in your home. I am excited to share these two with all of you because not only are there delicious gluten-free recipes, but plenty of insight on living gluten-free, and further information that is important to know whether you are celiac, gluten-intolerant, or have an allergy. Disclaimer: These two cookbooks were provided through NetGalley for read-to-review.
The Lagasse Girls’ Big Flavor, Bold Taste—and No Gluten!: 100 Gluten-Free Recipes from EJ’s Fried Chicken to Momma’s Strawberry Shortcake by Jilly Lagasse, Jessie Lagasse Swanson
The title says it all! I found this cookbook to be such an inspiration in the kitchen, and really kicked me into gear with cooking gluten-free dishes that were flavorful, and bold when it comes to my particular cooking style. I would always keep is simple, or make what I was used to, just omitting out the gluten in the recipe. After finding a few recipes that I wanted to try, and cooking them for my family, I realized this cookbook was a hit in my household. My family members are very wary on trying gluten-free dishes because they can eat it, but with the dishes I tried from The Lagasse Girls’ Big Flavor, Bold Taste—and No Gluten cookbook, they are looking forward to nights when I am cooking dinner, no gluten included! What I found very helpful and comforting was it wasn’t just recipes filling the pages, but interaction with the one reading through the cookbook. I also loved that it’s informative for those who are just starting a gluten-free lifestyle, because it has what to have in your pantry, as well as foods to doubt check to make sure they are safe for those who cannot consume gluten, and plenty of information that is important to know. I am recommending this cookbook to anyone who is gluten-free, or knows someone that is, because it is a must to have. I plan on buying a copy once it is published.
Gluten-Free Breakfast, Brunch & Beyond: Breads & Cakes * Muffins & Scones * Pancakes, Waffles & French Toast * Quiches * and More by Linda J. Amendt
Breakfast is the one meal that I would usually skip because it wasn’t appealing to me. Being gluten-free, it was the same each day, but what I enjoyed with this cookbook is the variety of dishes that weren’t complex, but delicious, and everyone could love. There is a great introduction at the beginning of the book, with tips, resources, and information. The two basic flour recipes were useful, and easy to make so I can have them on hand for baking. There are recipes for everyone to try, and enjoy, while staying gluten-free. I particularly loved the muffins, while other family members devoured the quiche. It’s well-written and illustrated, with simple instructions that are easy-to-follow. This is a fantastic cookbook to have for the selection of breakfast, brunch, and sweet treat recipes that can be made, as well as the amount of information and tips that come along with it.
I posted these two reviews on my personal blog because a lot of my followers are gluten-free, but I am sharing it here as well!
