Celiac Book Recommendations?

Recommended Posts

Mostly I want cookbook recommendations, but if you know of any that do a good job of combining information (because my husband needs to be educated) with recipes, I would love that too.

My son and I have celiac, so cookbooks with recipes that kids will like are particularly welcomed.

Also, I personally don't eat meat (but the rest of my family does) so if anyone knows of any good vegetarian gluten-free cookbooks that'd be great, too.

Thanks tons!

Incredible Edible Gluten-Free Food for Kids: 150 Family-Tested Recipes (Paperback)

by Sheri L. Sanderson

Incredible Edible Gluten Free for Kids is the best recipe book for kid-friendly recipes (and family friendly) - we make chicken balls (deep fried chicken nuggets), corn dogs, muffins, buttermilk pancakes on a regular basis out of this book. It doesn't use flour mixes as a basis for its recipes which I find to be easier and liberating in a strange way. The recipes turn out and they taste good.

I'd also recommend the Living Gluten Free for Dummies book for your loved ones and other interested parties. I leave it out conspicuously and find people (visitors, family members) pick it up and find it really accessible. I have yet to try the recipes but there are several in it as well.

Good luck and happy shopping!

I found "Wheat-Free, Worry-Free: The Art of Happy, Healthy Gluten-Free Living " by Danna Korn to be the most helpful and informative book to have when I was initially diagnosed. I have since lent it out to family and co-workers who have expressed an interest or had questions. There a few recipes, but mostly educational material. Korn is a well respected author in the gluten-free realm.

I also recommend Living Gluten Free for Dummies. I skimmed the book and i liked what i saw. I have two of the gluten free gourmet books. I have the Gluten Free Gourmet makes Dessert and The gluten free gourmet bakes bread.. I really like the graham crackers recipe in the bread one.

The author of those books is Bette Hagman

Wheat Free, Worry Free and Living Gluten Free for Dummies are written by the same person - Danna Korn. The dummies book is brand new and more up-to-date - but contains most of the same info and both have recipes. I bought both and my dh and I switched off reading the books. We wish we had only bought the dummies book.

There are TONS of cookbooks. Some for just baking, some for dinners, some for kids-friendly meals. I suggest going to a local bookstore and perusing the cookbooks. I went to Barnes and Noble and they had 3 rows of gluten-free cookbooks. It was in the area for special needs cooking (diabetes, heart-healthy, etc.). I bought three - one for baking goodies, one for regular meals, and one that was a combo of both. I started the diet a month ago and have used all 3 cookbooks. They've been lifesavers! I made my dh a gluten-free birthday cake and the whole family loved it (I'm the only celiac).

I definitely have to second the recommendation for Incredible Edible Gluten Free Food for Kids. It's by far the best cookbook I've bought. It has simple, easy to make recipes that use ingredients that are relatively easy to find. I also like the Gluten Free Gourmet books by Bette Hagman.

Also, amazon .com has gluten free food and I think orders over $25 qualify for free shipping. I buy all my Tinkyada pasta there because its pretty well priced and we go through the stuff like crazy. :) I also buy my cereal there because its the cheapest place I've found.
