I like www.glutenfreegirl.com (there's a recipe index somewhere on the site).

Recipezaar is good too - just search for "gluten-free"

Click on gluten-free cooking, then on gluten-free cooking archives. She uses a home-made flour mix that is

6 parts brown rice flour (extra-finely ground if you can find it)

2 parts potato starch

1 part tapioca starch

Note: tapioca starch and tapioca flour are the same thing. Potato starch and potato flour are NOT the same thing, though!

If you can't find extra-finely ground brown rice flour, use 3 parts Bob's Red Mill brown rice flour and 3 parts white rice flour instead of the 6 parts finely ground rice flour.

She also has a wonderful baking book called Gluten-Free Baking Classics that has out-of-this-world recipes that are so good, you'll NEVER miss gluten again!

I made a recipe binder from the recipes in the recipe section of this site.

I also like:Wheat free,gluten free cookbook for kids and busy adults. Good basic reciepes.

Also you can go pick up any cookbook...you just need to covert any flours or gluten containg ingredients. It's not very hard..I was daunted at first.

I have a mix of gluten-free and reg cookbooks...taste of home and better homes and garden are my two fav reg books.

The three I use the most:

Roben Ryberg's The Gluten-Free Kitchen (I actually wore a copy out!). It's basic, but the recipes don't require a bunch of unusual ingredients, and that can be helpful at first!

Incredible Edible Gluten-Free Food for Kids by Sheri Sanderson. A lot of family favorites that are already pretty much gluten-free naturally, just tweaked a little. But when you are new, again, your head is ready to fall off so it's nice to have direction!

Gluten-free, Sugar-free cooking by Susan O'Brien. Even if you don't care about the sugar, this is a GREAT cookbook. Lots of yummy, unusual-but-not-weird recipes of the sort that you would serve company and parties. But easy to make!

I am new to gluten-free cooking and I would really like to find some good recipes that would make it easier. Thanks

How much do you like to cook? If you really enjoy food and making it, I can't say enough good things about gluten free girl - Shauna Ahern. Her website is http://glutenfreegirl.blogspot.com/ and her writing is just as amazing as her cooking.

Otherwise, I generally have pretty good luck just googling for whatever it is I'm after plus the words 'gluten free' - there's a ton of stuff to be found on the internet, but with some gluten free cooking - ESPECIALLY baking - you kind of have to mess with things a bit & tweak them to your own liking. Things like bread & pie crusts you'll want to try a few different recipes & flour combos to find the ones you like best, but Shauna also has all her other recipes from the gluten free girl website indexed - you can find them here: http://gluten-freerecipes.blogspot.com/

There's plenty of company-worthy recipes in there that no one would ever suspect were gluten free!

I'll share my the pancake recipe I've been playing with for awhile - it's not quite perfect, but pretty darn good - 1/2 c. rice flour, 1/4 c. sweet sorghum flour, and 1/4 c. coconut flour - discovered the coconut flour not too long ago & have been playing around with it. It soaks up a lot of moisture, but the taste is great - really nice for muffins & what not, particularly banana bread! - um, 2 tsp baking soda, pinch of salt, 1 tbsp of sugar - mix em all together in a bowl. then in a separate bowl beat one egg with a cup or so of milk - may have to add more later to compensate for the coconut flour - and a tbsp of cooled melted butter. then add wet to dry, mix until all just incorporated - lumps are ok - & it looks like pancake batter. if too thick, add more milk (I use vanilla soy milk, gives a nice flavor). Then do the regular pancake cooking thing in a nice hot buttered pan. Very yummy!

DS1&only(so far!): born 7/12/05 * chronic diarrhea from age 5 mos. * WF/gluten-free from age 9 mos. * NO MORE LOOSE POOP!

10/19/2006 Tested positive for DQ2 Heterodimer (HLA DQA1*05/DQB1*02) and negative for HLA DQ8. Have followup appt. with ped. GI in December!

Update: Told GI I was unwilling to do serum tests (give him gluten). GI said if what I was doing works, then keep on keepin' on! Happy, healthy & nearly two now! Occasional rash & loose poop from drinking bathwater, so switching to all gluten-free beauty/personal products.

I love my Eating Gluten Free cookbook, they do have some great recipes. And their cookie recipes are awesome, especially the gingersnaps. I've been making a ton of cookies this week, and the gingersnaps are always the first to go.
