The cover says it all – “128 Delicious Recipes…Dinner Dishes You Never Thought You’d Be Able to Eat Again.” Following on the heels of the Cake Mix Doctor Bakes Gluten-Free I set out to write a quick dinner cookbook for all my gluten-free friends. Inside are the recipes you need to make pizza, pasta, enchiladas, fried chicken, fritters, brownies, and more. No joking! And the photographs by Lucy Schaeffer are dazzling. Whether you need to eliminate or reduce the gluten (protein found in wheat, barley and rye) in your diet, this book offers delicious recipes and solid solutions. You can eat well again.
Most popular recipes: So many to count…Allison’s Gluten-Free Granola, Crispy Cheese Wafers, Crab Fritters with Spicy Mayonnaise, Cranberry and Orange Scones, Real Deal Gluten-Free Fried Chicken, Mexican Lasagna, Gluten-Free Baked Apricots, Easy Apple Tart, and Gluten-Free Saucepan Brownies.
Why I wrote this book: I traveled on book tour with the first gluten-free book, and no matter where I went people asked for dinner recipes. Thank you for writing a gluten-free cake book, they said, and now can you write one for dinner? I got a notepad and pen out of my bag and began writing down the recipes they wanted me to include in the book.
Favorite cooking tip in the book: Great brownies don’t need flour. The cocoa in my recipe, along with a little cornstarch, is sufficient enough to give the brownies structure and chewiness. Also, there are loads of delicious gluten-free pastas on the supermarket shelves. My favorites are made of corn and of artichoke flour.
