gluten-free girl every day, and a giveaway

Gluten Free Girl Every Day

Note: This drawing is now closed. Perhaps the biggest perk of my job is that I get to try out recipes long before books are published. I see the recipes up to a year and half in advance of publication. I spend time reading them and editing them. If something looks really good, I try the recipe out at home. The funny thing, as I’ve mentioned, is that when I first started working on the newest Gluten-Free Girl cookbook, I wasn’t gluten-free myself yet. Maybe you’ve read my story — going gluten-free has been an amazingly positive experience so far. So my initial interest in some of the recipes I have tried from Gluten-Free Girl Every Day was just because they seemed so yummy. Now they’re staples at my house. About the hazelnut chocolate chip cookies above, I don’t care if you’re gluten-free or not, you will love these. You DO have to make a gluten-free flour blend first (the recipe is in the book), but you save a fortune by doing that instead of buying one of those pre-made mixes.  Totally worth it.

Gluten Free Girl Every Day

And now that it’s almost summer and zucchini is in season again, this pesto-like “pasta” is going to be on the menu at my place a lot more often. I can’t get enough of this recipe. About the new Gluten-Free Girl Every Day cookbook, if you live in the US or Canada and would like to be entered into a drawing for a copy, just post a comment below before May 16th at midnight.  Good luck!

    I suspect the homemade blend is probably better than the pre-mixed ones anyway. Though our household isn’t gluten free, we’ve tried to cut back on our gluten intake significantly, and we’re really enjoying baking with GF flours. We have a lot of friends with celiac, and it’s nice to be able to cook and bake for them without worry.

  2. I don’t do much baking…but that zucchini salad photo is making me crazy. It’s also making me realize it’s almost 1 p.m. and I need some lunch. I’ll have to settle for spinach salad today but hoping for zucchini soon!

    I would love a copy…I made some cookies for a friend the other day and she asked me if i can make it gluten-free. So, it would be nice to learn to make some things gluten-free for my friends.

    I would absolutely love a copy of this book! Shauna and Danny are about good food, this makes me happy. Yes being Celiac makes life more interesting, but it should never limit your love of good food.
