I Need A Good Baking Book
0

8 posts in this topic

I would like a good cookbook with baked goods that I can take to potlucks and not have people say, "Oh it's her gluten free food." I used to be a pretty good cook and it kind of hurts my feelings that my food can't compare with other stuff.

Also I would love a good rolls recipe.

Thanks

Gluten free baking classics and gluten free on a shoestring are great. Hope this helps. :)

Easy gluten free baking by Elizabeth Barbone. It has the best banana nut bread recipe. My family can't even tell it gluten free. I bake it in a heavy Williams Sonoma bread pan and it makes the outside a little crispy. Soooo good!

I would second Easy Gluten Free Baking by Elizabeth Barbone - her stuff is wonderful! She also has a website, glutenfreebaking.com, where she has a lot of free recipes. I also have Gluten-Free Baking Classics, which seems really good, but I haven't had much of a chance to try it out yet.

"1,000 Gluten Free Recipes" by Carol Fenster. My grandmother got it for me when she found out about my diagnosis, and I'm loving it. I've made some of the bread, and it's turned out excellent. So many recipes, I don't think I'll ever get through them all! Definitely check it out. :)

You Won't Believe It's Gluten-Free by Roben Ryberg, I second gluten free on a shoestring, and the internet.

You can find loads of good recipes on the internet (plus its free lol)

Biggest difference I've found (as I remember it) between gluten and gluten-free things tends to be a texture thing, moisture, or funny aftertaste.

Also, for baked goods the best thing to do in my experience is test on strangers :P If they enjoy your cookies/squares/cake etc and they can't tell that it is gluten free, or something is different...you can consider yourself successful.

Once you get started with baking gluten free, it gets a bit easier :) I can email you an easy christmas cookie recipe that I had good success with at a bazaar if you'd like.

Flying Apron by Jennifer Katzinger; gluten-free & Vegan, excellent!

Blackbird Bakery by Karen Morgan

Gluten-free Girl by Shauuna James Ahern

These three books, along with Mary's Gone Crackers, have changed the way I eat and feel. I stay far away from all that white stuff and grind what I can myself. Flax meal makes a great "base" for crackers and cookies! I've already lost 40 lb with very little effort. Get rid of the white stuff or use very little.

My favorite book is, hands down:

Make it Fast

Cook it Slow

The Big Book of Everyday Slowcooking by Stephanie O'Dea

This is gluten-free and healthy! A real winner.

There are more but i really like these.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
