Welcome to Gluten-Free on a Shoestring, a gluten free recipe blog with hundreds of free gluten free recipes for all of your favorite foods! Everything you've been missing is right here!
Who & What I Am
I'm Nicole. I started this blog about halfway through 2009 to chronicle my family's gluten-free life, and to share the gluten free recipes I was developing at home. My son, Jonathan, has celiac disease, but he also has 2 sisters (Bailey and Ava). And they all have friends. And kids and their kid-friends do not grade on a curve. Everything I have made for my gluten-free son since 2005 I have made with 1 goal in mind:
It'd better be good. Not "good for gluten-free." Just plain good.
And it had also better be accessible and affordable, because we in the gluten-free community deserve as much. Anyone should be able to afford to eat gluten-free, if that's how you want or need to eat. Here's how we get it done around here.
What To Do
First, please pick up a copy of My Cookbook! It has 125 recipes that you might be missing, now that you or someone you love is gluten-free. And when you buy it, you support me, and the work I do here on the blog. So I can keep doing it. And anyway you'll love it.
Second, preorder My Second Cookbook, Quick and Easy. It has 100 recipes for more gluten-free food you might be missing, and it's all about getting it on the table fast. It has a lot of yeast-free gluten-free breads, that are ready on the double, and even a whole chapter on make-your-own cake and cookie mixes.
Third, while you wait for the cookbooks to arrive, get started here on the blog. A great place to begin is the Visual Recipe Index, with photos of every single recipe here on the blog, by category. It gives a nice overview.
Here are some of the most popular posts on the blog, along with some of my personal favorites:
6. The Top Ten Secrets To Baking Good Gluten-Free Bread (and don't miss all the recipes for Gluten-Free Breads, too):
There's plenty more where that came from. Don't forget about that Recipe Index! It's worth the price of admission alone.
