Gluten-free Cook Book! Help!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody! I'm somewhat new, but not totally new to gluten free. But I've been searching and searching for a good cookbook for me. I'm in college, not a good cook, on the go a lot, need to pack lunches and I'm on a tight budget. It seems that all the cookbooks out there have such...may I say extravagant recipes. Like recipes I would never use nor would be efficient at this time. I want a cookbook that is well rounded (desserts, main, apps, etc) but yet has quite a few recipes that I could actually want and can make. I'm not looking for completely simple like peanut butter and jelly I just don't want a whole cookbook full of "chicken basil ala spinach puffs" which a lot of cookbooks I looked for are like. haha. I was just wondering if someone had any suggestions or ideas that could help me out! :D

Is gluten your only allergy? How about dairy, nuts, soy etc.???

Right now the two main cook books I have been using a lot are:

*The Gluten Free Kitchen by Roben Ryberg (Main ingredients are Potato Starch, Corn Starch, Baking Soda and Baking Powder then couple normal ingredients) It is a really easy cookbook. About 264 pages (recipes start on pg 14)

*Inreditble Edible Gluten Free Food for Kids by Sheri L. Sanderson

Yes it is labled for Kids BUT.... it has some really easy recipes in it that will get you started and use to baking/cooking gluten free. Sounds funny but it has a symbol on most of the pages i.e. EZ to show its an easy recipe or a Clock showing that it doesn't take that long. Around 280 pages (recipes start on pg 34) At the end of the book it has a cooking tips/trouble shooting section.

-- Both Cook Books don't have that many ingredients. They both have Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Desserts (cookies, pies etc). I think they are good beginner cook books that will help you make the next step to the more time consuming ones if you want. If you like pizza they both have pizza recipes :D

I just made Rolls from The Gluten Free Kitchen one tonight... I use then for sandwich rolls or hamburger buns.

Good Luck

Why not just look up recipes on the internet? That way you have all the cookbooks you could ever want.

I really love this site http://glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.com/ she posts easy and economical recipes. All of them are gluten-free, many are vegetarian or vegan. Karina's recipe for Sweet Potato Black Bean Enchiladas is (delicious, and) one of six finalists up for Whole Food's recipe contest.
