I love this book! It contains so much helpful information for the celiac community or those living gluten free. With everything from how to stock your pantry to how to get your kids to read labels to easy amazing recipes, this book has it all. The perfect first book for a newly diagnosed celiac, or one for family members to have on hand. Our favourite recipes so far are the monkey bread, the buttermilk pancakes and the no bake honey date balls!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great resource Feb. 22 2013
By Daniel Taylor - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has 141 pages of information about gluten, living gluten-free, how to deal with people who aren't aware of gluten and how to travel with while eating gluten-free. The reading is informative, but not aggressive. It is a great resource for someone who is starting a gluten-free lifestyle or for someone who wants to understand more about gluten and what precautions must be taken without having to read 4 or 5 books. The last half of the book includes some great recipes. Some of them are naturally gluten-free and others are made with gluten-free flours.

I must note that over half of the recipes contain dairy. Some of the dairy may easily be substituted with a non-dairy alternative, such as making your own buttermilk, or using dairy-free butter. Sadly, I am not able to eat dairy, so I will need to tweak the recipes to conform to my diet.

The text in the book is green, I'm not lowering the star rating for this, but I'm not a huge fan of the colored text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Embracing gluten-free living and cooking. Feb. 21 2013
By Jody2of5 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you are new to the gluten-free way of living, or if you have been traveling this path for a while, this book by Jeanine Friesen will help you continue on your journey with lots of encouragement and with lots of great food! If you are having thoughts of, "I can't do this, no way, no how," give this book a chance to change your mind. We've gone way past the days of having to do without great-tasting food because our bodies cannot tolerate gluten and wheat, and one look at Jeanine's book and you will see not only why that is, but how that is. She is a master baker who makes it look easy and taste great! Growing up in the south, I was really craving biscuits that actually tasted like a biscuit. The Fluffy Buttermilk Biscuits (pg 214) completely satisfied that desire for a good biscuit. I've baked the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies (pg 259) and even nongluten-free cookie lovers could not tell the difference. She covers everything from breakfast recipes to main dishes, sides and salads and a whole lot more.

Chapter 10 is all about Gluten-Free Kids, Chapter 12 is Kid-Friendly Lunches and Snacks and Chapter 18 is all about Arts and Crafts Recipes. She even included a chapter on Slow Cooker Recipes (one of my favorites). I can't wait to try the Blueberry French Toast Casserole!

This is a well-rounded, well thought out approach to the gluten-free life. I would recommend you take a plunge, you won't look back at what used to be, but what is still very good things to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential, compressive guide for the gluten-free Feb. 24 2013
By D. Reise - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a must-have for anyone embarking on a new, gluten-free chapter in their life. It is incredibly clear and informative.

The guide part of the book is a quick 141 pages (with the back containing 100 gluten-free recipes), yet author Jeanine Friesen touches on all the most-know aspects of living gluten-free. Whether starting gluten-free diet under a doctor's orders, or trying to see if eliminating gluten can help you better manage health concerns, this book is the ultimate starting point.

In an age when there is an explosion of people going gluten free for both health or fad diet reasons, there has been a corresponding explosion of information and misinformation on living gluten-free. Friesen relies on current scientific understandings of why and how this pesky little protein can cause so many problems. She goes on to give practical advice for how to adopt a gluten-free life no matter your reasons.

As a person trying to understand gluten and how to avoid it for three years since my partner developed gluten intolerance, I wish I had this resource at hand then! What I was able to learn sifting through the morass of available information over many months, Friesen has provided in a handful of accessible chapters. I was particularly impressed by her ability to explain the science behind celiac disease and gluten intolerance without confusing or boring the novice. She did not dumb down anything either. I consider myself to be fairly knowledgeable on gluten issues, but learned of several potential gluten sources and got some additional tips.

Friesen's goal is to provide a guide on the smoothest, least stressful transition to gluten-free living. She succeeds with practical tips and reassurances. Not only does she help the reader make a safe-from-gluten kitchen in their home, she walks through the challenges of living gluten-free at restaurants, at social gatherings, when traveling, and with children going gluten-free.

The recipes in the book represent a broad spectrum of gluten-free food options and are universally simple and quick recipes that even the most novice cook can tackle with ease. The recipes may be too simple for more advanced cooks and bakers, but they can serve as excellent starting points. The Devil's Food Cake with Mocha Buttercream may be the most successful dessert recipe I've ever made, with or without gluten. I heartily recommend her Ultimate Pumpkin Waffles and Focaccia Bread too. In addition to this wonderful book, Friesen operates the gluten-free cooking website which has scores of additional recipes, both simple and more complex. It is an especially vital resource for gluten-free baked goods.

This book is the perfect starting point for someone beginning to go gluten-free or for someone with a gluten-free person in their life. It can also be helpful to the gluten-free veterans out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular GF Resource & Recipes March 20 2013
By JanD - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Extremely well written, thorough and very detailed resource for living gluten free! I was diagnosed with Celiac disease and have been gluten free for over two years. I wish this book would have been available back when I started, it would have saved me a lot of research and time. Even though I feel I am well versed in regards to being gluten free, I have learned some very helpful additional information from this book. Whether you are new to gluten free or well informed like myself, this is a perfect guide to every day living in a gluten free world. In regards to the recipes, they are all fantastic! She has taken so many traditional recipes and perfectly converted them to taste like the gluten versions. A non-gluten free person would never know these are gluten free recipes, I can't wait for her to publish more of her fabulous recipes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gluten Free Tastes Wonderful! March 18 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was offered to review this book in pdf file for my blog. I have been gluten free for over a year and I found this book very helpful for anyone just starting out. Jeanine has put such wonderful info and lots of recipe in this book. I went ahead and made her gluten free crepes (you can see them on my blog review) and they were just wonderful, even my non gluten free eating family LOVED them!
