How does a healthier version of your favourite sweet treat sound? Not only does Cooking Light’s Gluten-Free Baking Cookbook offer a plethora of gluten-free goodies, it boasts wholegrain and less fat saturated fat content for delectable from-scratch desserts. Included in the new cookbook, you’ll find recipes for muffins, waffles, cookies, cakes, pie, quick breads, pizza, cobblers and more!
Even though we don’t bake sweets often in our home, when we do – we want them gluten-free and good. Am I happy with this new recipe book? Oh ya. The visuals are gorgeous and inspiring. The recipes are straight forward and doable. This Maple Walnut Banana Bread caught my attention straight away – hello, delicious!
May is Celiac Awareness month – a time when Celiac councils and the media shed light on Celiac disease and the gluten-free lifestyle. It is estimated that 1% of the population has Celiac. It is also estimated that 83% of Americans who have celiac disease are undiagnosed or misdiagnosed with other conditions. I personally do not have Celiac, but I do have a gluten sensitivity. I avoid gluten as much as possible to keep reactions and symptoms at bay. Fifteen years ago it was very difficult to find alternative flours, recipes and information for gluten sensitivity, but I’m happy that presently there are so many more option for those who can not consume gluten.
Such as this fantastic cookbook!
Robert Landolphi, the author, is a chef, husband, and dad who made it his mission to master the nuances of gluten-free cuisine after his wife was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2000.
