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.

My favorite - The Gluten-Free Gourmet Bakes Bread by Bette Hagman.

And here is my favorite roll recipe - sorry I don't know the origin:

Gluten Free Rolls
(makes about one dozen)

3/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup potato starch
1/2 cup gluten-free flour mix (I use Bette Hagman's Featherlight)

2 tsp xanthan gum
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 packet yeast (about 1 Tablespoon)
3/4 tsp salt

4 tbsp shortening or melted butter
3/4 tsp vinegar
1 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
3 tbsp honey
2 eggs

Directions

Preheat oven to 350F. Mix all ingredients well/
Wet your hands to handle dough.
Shape into balls, using about cup dough for each.
Put into a greased muffin tin or on a greased pan.

Bake for about 16-18 minutes.
