AIMAge: Over 65Gender: Female3 Stars Out Of 5150 Gluten-Free RecipesJanuary 27, 2020AIMAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3I agree with the two previous reviews regarding the inclusion of meaningful scriptures; the interesting, personal stories behind the recipes; as well as the important information at the end of the book regarding starting out on a G-F diet. It is a nice size, spiral bound book with colorful pictures. My main comment is that these recipes are LOADED with sugar and fat. In this day and age of people being health conscious, I would have liked to have seen G-F recipes that were healthy and low on sugar and fat. The only recipe I have made so far, I cut the sugar in half, and it was still VERY sweet.
rkfall5 Stars Out Of 5150 Gluten-FreeMarch 30, 2019rkfallMy thanks to Tami and her Mom, Bonnie. I love that Harvest House has put a book out that touches my heart and my tummy in a great way. I've been strictly gluten-free since 2012 and it's always great to mix up the recipes a bit and be inspired by looking through a book about it. That is why I picked up this book. This is definitely for beginners on the gluten-free journey, which at the beginning can feel overwhelming. But this book not only shares some great recipes but it also adds Scripture as well. Breakfast, bread, main dishes, and desserts all made so gluten-free people can eat it. The personalities of both authors are such a delight to read from. My favorite recipes are Lemon Butter Shrimp and Asparagus, Dill Pickle Veggie Dip, and Butterfinger Carmel Cheesecake.
I received a digital copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
E. Elizabeth5 Stars Out Of 5Review of 150+ Gluten Free Family FavoritesJuly 21, 2018E. ElizabethQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Why did I choose this cookbook? Well, I have celiac, and just because I can't eat gluten, does not mean I don't have taste buds and don't want to eat normal food just like everyone else. If I could eat gluten filled doughnuts or pop tarts or hot rolls at restaurants, I would. I am very picky about what I cook and am always looking for new cookbooks that will help me prepare food that tastes normal to gluten eaters. So, when I saw 150+ Gluten-Free Family Favorites by Tamara Dillon and Bonnie Root, I decided to try it. Here are the main reasons I would recommend this cookbook.
I enjoyed the simplicity the authors use in the ingredient list, especially the flour. They give their favorite brands but tell you to try the brand that works for your family. I appreciate this because so many cookbooks require you to buy multiple different flours to combine into a flour blend. That can get pricey and sometimes hard to find depending on where you are located. Also, making your own flour blends is so time-consuming. While I love making food from scratch, I already have to make so much from scratch that to be able to use some premade ingredients is really wonderful.
I enjoyed the different tips and options the authors give to customize the recipe for your family's tastes. Almost every recipe gives different toppings suggestions or suggestions for ingredients that can be swapped depending on the season or the type of recipe you are looking for.
I enjoyed the gluten avoidance tips. While none of the tips were new to me, they were a good reminder to always be looking out for possible contamination. I appreciated that they covered tips such as having separate only for gluten free items mayonnaise. So many times I had to find things like that out the hard way after becoming sick from contamination.
Lastly, I enjoyed the way the authors give the stories or reasons behind why each recipe is important to their family. It gave me a glimpse inside their homes and helped me be able to connect with them.
I would recommend this book to anyone who has to eat gluten free or for those who cook for people who are gluten free.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Harvest House Publishers through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
