I Need A Good Baking Book

8 posts in this topic

I would like a good cookbook with baked goods that I can take to potlucks and not have people say, "Oh it's her gluten free food." I used to be a pretty good cook and it kind of hurts my feelings that my food can't compare with other stuff.

Also I would love a good rolls recipe.

Thanks

Gluten free baking classics and gluten free on a shoestring are great. Hope this helps. :)

Easy gluten free baking by Elizabeth Barbone. It has the best banana nut bread recipe. My family can't even tell it gluten free. I bake it in a heavy Williams Sonoma bread pan and it makes the outside a little crispy. Soooo good!

I would second Easy Gluten Free Baking by Elizabeth Barbone - her stuff is wonderful! She also has a website, glutenfreebaking.com, where she has a lot of free recipes. I also have Gluten-Free Baking Classics, which seems really good, but I haven't had much of a chance to try it out yet.

"1,000 Gluten Free Recipes" by Carol Fenster. My grandmother got it for me when she found out about my diagnosis, and I'm loving it. I've made some of the bread, and it's turned out excellent. So many recipes, I don't think I'll ever get through them all! Definitely check it out. :)

You Won't Believe It's Gluten-Free by Roben Ryberg, I second gluten free on a shoestring, and the internet.

You can find loads of good recipes on the internet (plus its free lol)

Biggest difference I've found (as I remember it) between gluten and gluten-free things tends to be a texture thing, moisture, or funny aftertaste.

Also, for baked goods the best thing to do in my experience is test on strangers :P If they enjoy your cookies/squares/cake etc and they can't tell that it is gluten free, or something is different...you can consider yourself successful.

Once you get started with baking gluten free, it gets a bit easier :) I can email you an easy christmas cookie recipe that I had good success with at a bazaar if you'd like.

Flying Apron by Jennifer Katzinger; gluten-free & Vegan, excellent!

Blackbird Bakery by Karen Morgan

Gluten-free Girl by Shauuna James Ahern

These three books, along with Mary's Gone Crackers, have changed the way I eat and feel. I stay far away from all that white stuff and grind what I can myself. Flax meal makes a great "base" for crackers and cookies! I've already lost 40 lb with very little effort. Get rid of the white stuff or use very little.

My favorite book is, hands down:

Make it Fast

Cook it Slow

The Big Book of Everyday Slowcooking by Stephanie O'Dea

This is gluten-free and healthy! A real winner.

There are more but i really like these.

    • Good advice Ennis!  I would add baking and freezing some gluten-free cupcakes to have on hand, so that she is never left out.  Be sure to read our Newbie 101 tips under the coping section of the forum.  Cross contamination is a big issue,  If the house is not gluten free, make sure everyone is in board with kitchen procedures.   Hopefully, your GI talked about the fact that this AI issue is genetic.   Get tested (and your TD1 child).  TD1 is strongly linked to celiac disease.  About 10% of TD1's develop celiac disease and vice versa.  Get tested even if you do not display any symptoms.    http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/diagnosing-celiac-disease/
    • What does weak mean?  Like you squat down and and you can not get back up?  Or are you fatigued?  When you said blood panel, was your thyroid tested?  Antibodies for thyroid should be checked if you have celiac.  So many of us have thyroid issues.  
    • We are not doctors, but based on the results you provided, you tested negative on the celiac screening test.  You could ask for the entire celiac blood panel to help rule out celiac disease.  The other IgA that was high?  It normally is given as a control test for the TTG IgA test (meaning if the celiac test results are valid).  In your case, the TTG IgA test works.  Outside of celiac disease, you might have some infection.  Discuss this with your doctor as he has access to your entire medical file.  I would not worry about it though over the weekend!  
    • See: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/can-a-skin-biopsy-for-dermatitis-herpetiformis-dh-confirm-celiac-disease-or-is-an-endoscopy-still-needed/ Take a copy of that with you or mail it to the doc. How many endoscopic biopsies did they take? Those with dh tend to have patchier damage than "normal" celiacs.
    • Ironictruth, I think that is a very insightful thought. since different antibodies present for different body systems all the ways gluten affects the body is still not well understood. Here is a case of presumably someone who had the gut damage of a celiac but also had neurological damage. http://www.nature.com/nrneurol/journal/v3/n10/full/ncpneuro0631.html entitled "A case of celiac disease mimicking amyotrophic lateral sclerosis" so it has happened in the literal but since this is not well understood people don't make the connection today. I would also point you to this hindawi article on the "Lesson's learned from Pellagra" but I am afraid we haven' learn't yet. https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cggr/2012/302875/ notice specially the 2.1 section clinical feature of pellagra and all the neurological symptom's once associated with a Pellagra patient. quoting "The neurological manifestation did not stop there because other degenerative conditions, such as an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like picture, were described, with fasciculation of the tongue and upper and lower motor neuron signs. Cerebellar syndromes occurred and vertigo was frequent. Headaches, sensory and pain syndromes, epilepsy, and involuntary movements were noted as well as sleep disturbances. Cord lesions were also seen, as was optic atrophy, so there were multiple sclerosis (MS), like variants." which tells me doctor's don't recognize pellagra today when they see it because they haven't seen it in 75+ years. ***this is not medical advice but read the hindawi journal on lesson's learned and I think you will see yourself in their many descriptions of all the way Pellagra presents itself to doctor's and patients still suffering today and you can see why it (like celiac) is hard to pin down today because it presents in so many ways it can be soo overwhelming and since vitamins are not a focus anymore today (especially b-vitamins) that today I believe we are doomed to repeat history's lessons unless the current generation learns again all the ways pellagra presents itself today. good luck on your continued journey. posterboy by the grace of God,
