More and more people are choosing to live a gluten free lifestyle, many by necessity. But eating gluten-free does not have to mean eating taste-free. My new cookbook is out just in time for the holidays filled with gluten-free recipes anyone can make and everyone will love.
After blogging for over 6 years, I have written The Warm Kitchen, a comprehensive cookbook filled with cooking techniques, tips, step-by-step instructions, family friendly dishes, and beautiful full color photos. There is also a chapter on how to stock a gluten-free pantry.
Within the pages of my book, I demystify gluten-free cooking, breaking down the assumption that cooking without gluten is challenging or unappetizing. From breakfast to dessert-- with soups, salads, main and side dishes, and breads in between—over 150 recipes in The Warm Kitchen feature real ingredients and easy-to-follow instructions that yield delicious results. With the use of my single, easy-to-mix, gluten-free flour blend, home cooks can create favorite dishes such as: bagels, crust-less quiche, fresh breads, chicken pot pie, zucchini pancakes, pizza, doughnuts, cupcakes, chocolate whoopee pies, shortbread, chocolate chip cookies, carrot cake, and more.
After preparing a special diet for my family for over 6 years, I understand cooking for multiple food allergies and the book includes excellent substitutions for dairy, eggs, and sugar. My number one goal is that home cooks are as successful as I have been with creating dishes for any occasion any day of the week. When you open up The Warm Kitchen, I want you to feel like you have come in to my kitchen; the warmth comes from both the oven as well as my heart.
If living gluten-free makes you feel like you are missing out on some of your favorite foods, then welcome to The Warm Kitchen, the must-have cookbook this fall.
