This little book has been me back a sphere of life I thought was lost forever! Being unable to eat gluten and starch means my diet is seriously altered and has deteriorated over several years. But I can now eat bread, sandwiches, cookies (i cook without sugar) cakes - you have no idea how 'normal' that makes me feel. Thank you!
i just read and thought to myself, if i was reading these reviews I might be discouraged from buying this potentially awesome book. judging just by the "too many eggs" issue, but being a holistic chef, i might suggest that you google substitutions for eggs. i know that flax seed with warm water gels like the consistancy of and egg, and there are others, just chec it out. i hope this gives some hope to those who might have passed on this book!
I am allergic to all grains. It had been 6 yrs without any "bread", until I made the coconut bread. It didn't rise as much as I thought it would but the texture was great as was the taste. Looking forward to trying more products from the book.
This book has very clear instructions, and explains the problem with GF flours ( I dreaded the learning curve and I've previously thrown out lots of GF bread that I had made, then lots of GF flour---a terrible experience), as well as problems with coconut flour (I previously threw away a bag of it in disgust. Another terrible experience.)
We've just tried Bruce's coconut flour pancakes today. Delicious. Very encouraging. Thank you Dr. Bruce Fife for persevering. We are looking forward to trying other recipes from the book.
Well, this is a first for me: a review on a cookbook. But I really like this little book. Made the Cream Cheese Squares tonight. Perfect! There are so many recipes in here I'm looking forward to trying. Definitely a five-star cookbook.
