Nearly Normal Cooking for Gluten-Free Eating (Gluten-Free Cookbooks)

Jules Shepard, a long-time lover of all baked goodies, was diagnosed with life-altering celiac disease in 1999. Until that time, she had suffered through nearly ten years of misdiagnoses and a roller coaster of gastrointestinal symptoms. Transitioning from a steady diet of pizza, pasta and bagels to rice, beans and bananas was incredibly difficult, particularly without the aid of any tasteful specialty cookbooks or gluten-free mixes.

Especially unique to this cookbook are gluten-free recipes containing ingredients found in most kitchens and grocery stores - no extensive searching and expensive specialty store bills are necessary to make safe and delicious meals. Jules Shepard also discloses the recipe to her own all purpose gluten-free flour which is unlike any other on the market today. Using a special combination of five different flours, the result is a versatile blend of flours that tastes – yes tastes – like the flour we were all raised on.

"This cookbook is the culmination of years of trial and error – once diagnosed with celiac disease I set out to do away with the typical dry, gritty gluten-free food that pervades the marketplace," says author Jules Shepard. "The point of the cookbook is to infuse a little humor while helping the reader learn to live life as close to normal as possible — and of course to learn to make gluten-free meals that everyone will honestly enjoy eating!"

As an avid cook and good Southern woman, Jules attempted to continue creating delicious meals and tempting treats for her family and friends. But when they could stand gluten-free food no longer, she set about to revolutionize recipes without gluten. With the goal of making gluten-free food taste nearly normal, Jules spent years experimenting with various grains and flours to formulate recipes that offer a fresh and tasty approach to living and eating without missing the wheat or gluten.

Those suffering from celiac disease can't process grains like wheat, barley or rye, which cause damage to their intestines, among other health problems. It is fast becoming recognized as one of the most common life-long genetic diseases, yet the only known treatment requires strict adherence to a diet without gluten. This diet is not easy, nor is it satisfying – until now!

Among the highlights included in this cookbook are:

The Do's and Don'ts of Gluten-Free Living
A Reference guide of safe grains and alcohols to enjoy
Helpful advice and references on celiac disease
More than 145 delicious and do-able recipes for every meal of the day.
A handy Selected Ingredient Index in addition to a Recipe Index

Nearly Normal Cooking™ for Gluten-Free Eating is the culmination of culinary experiments, research and insights into gluten-free life. In a world where gluten-free food has nearly always been synonymous with enjoyment-free food, this badly needed guidebook will help all those with gluten intolerance begin to live the "nearly normal" life they so deserve. In a genial and easy-to-read manner, Jules shares tips and tricks of cooking gluten-free so that no one will ever know the difference.

When others (celiac and non-celiac alike) repeatedly asked for her recipes and doggie bags, Jules realized how important it was to share her hard work and successes with those trying to live normally without wheat and gluten.

Jules Shepard is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate in English from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and also earned her JD and LL.M. in international and comparative law from the Duke University School of Law. A former state prosecutor, Jules now focuses most of her attention on her family, on her pottery and on creating yummy, gluten-free creations in the kitchen.

This is a great cookbook with excellent recipes for allergy-friendly eating! Several are now family favorites. Be aware that Jules' recipes are designed to work with her flour blend, which we think is the BEST Gluten- Free flour on the market! (It already contains Xanthan gum and has an incredible texture!)

I just received this book and can't wait to start making some of these recipes. I was thrilled to see a recipe for a flour mix.

Julie Shephard's "Nearly normal gluten free flour mix" is fantastic. Not only does it make her recipies taste fantastic, I have used the flour mix in place of that called for in my other gluten free cookbooks and it has markedly improved the taste of those recipies. I have had some success substituting it in 1:1 for wheat flour in regular recipies as well. I almost didn't buy this book since I have so many other gluten free cookbooks already, but I am so thankful I did. When my husband was diagnosed, I put my whole family on a GF diet. Although Julie does not include a bread recipie per se, by using her flour mix in other GF recipies, I finally have a GF bread my 4 year old will eat.
