I've never seen a cookbook by her in my library, but I live a small town.

I generally check cookbooks out from the library before purchasing them to see if they're worthwhile.

It looks like a spendy purchase. I probably wouldn't invest anything more than $30 including shipping. I find it pretty easy to get ideas and recipes online for free.

My sister bought me a gluten-free cookbook and I haven't made one recipe in it, even though I cook every meal we eat, and have for 17 months.

I'd rather spend the money on good things to eat! :D


Positive improvement from elimination diet. Mother dx'd by Mayo Clinic in late 1980s. Negative blood tests and Upper & Lower GI biopsy. Parathyroidectomy 12/09. Recurring high calcium level 4/10. Gluten-free 4/10. Soy & Dairy Free 6/10. Corn free 7/10. Grain free except rice 8/10. Legume free 6/11. Fighting the battle of the battle within myself, and I'm going to win!

As of 2/12, tolerating dairy, corn, legumes and some soy, but I limit soy to tamari sauce or modest soy additives. Won't ever try quinoa again!

Discoid Lupus from skin biopsy 2011, discovered 2/12 when picking up medical records. Systemic Lupus Dx 6/12. Shingles 10/12.

It's actually an eBook series (no physical books, just PDF's), and there are 14 volumes in the set, plus some bonus recipes. We bought it, and it doesn't seem bad at all. The "book" on flours alone has a lot of good information in it....how each one tastes, what their best purpose is, etc. I tent to just take regular recipes and modify them myself to make them gluten-free, but I always like a good cookbook for new ideas, or for learning new informatoin and techniques so that I can make stuff up or experiement on my own. :)

Was it a worthwhile expenditure? Would you recommend it to friends who can't tolerate gluten?

I haven't read or tried any of the actual recipes yet, but as far as educational content about flours, gluten-free cooking in general, etc...yes, I think it's worth it. You can get the whole series for about $40 I think it was.
