About the Author
When someone receives the diagnosis of Celiac Disease, life changes forever. They now must create a new normal that involves never consuming foods containing gluten, in any form, again. I am the wife of a Celiac and when my husband was first diagnosed, our life turned upside down. Now, after studying, researching, and testing lots of foods and recipes, we are surviving and happy in our new normal and I hope this cookbook helps you create your new normal too. I currently live in Texas with my husband, Brian, our two dogs, Maggie and Tramp, and our cat, Tess.

The author apparently loves arrowroot (and other starches) as these are what makes up most of her recipes. Hardly any of the baking recipes are from scratch. Most require prepackaged gluten free cake mixes that she adds a few ingredients to.
Pecan Pie for instance. Is just regular old pecan pie baked in a gluten free pie crust. Because nobody would have been able to figure out how to make a gluten free pecan pie right?
And in case you didn't feel like enough of a moron reading this book she's included recipes for fruit parfaits, which is just fruit and whip cream (sic). Double chocolate peanut butter brownies? Sounds intriguing right...until you see it's just a box of gluten free brownie mix and some reese's minatures thrown in.
Chex mix? Almost the exact recipe from the chex mix site..minus the wheat chex, bagel chips and season salt. Again I'm positive anyone (newly diagnosed or otherwise) wouldn't have been able to make chex mix gluten free.
Chicken Fried Steak is battered in tapioca and arrowroot...I could go on and on.
Nothing in this book is original. I know there's only so many way's to cook various foods but this is horrible. Somewhere in the product description it should have said that these were recipes that rely heavily on prepackaged cake mixes, brownie mixes, BBQ sauce, etc. Most of the recipes in this book are naturally gluten free anyway, chicken and rice, chicken enchiladas made with prepackaged corn tortillas, honey bbq sauce using bottled bbq sauce and so on.
I wish I could get my money back on this purchase!
