Baking Gluten Free Bread … in Minnesota! (Plus a Giveaway)

Baking Gluten Free Bread … in Minnesota! (Plus a Giveaway)

Baking Gluten Free Bread with the Winners

Somebody Really Did Win!

This is us! Well, the winners and me. From the Gluten Free on a Shoestring Bakes Bread Big and BIGGER Giveaway. Left to right, above: Me, Hilma Cooper (the actual winner!) and Anneke Krall (the winner’s lovely daughter). I thought you might like to see what we did, and how it all went. It happened in Minnesota. In January. I went from cold and snowy New York … to colder and even snowier Minnesota. ‘Cause I’m that kind of girl. And since I couldn’t decide whether posting this would make you feel happy (yay! for the winner!) or mad (thanksfornothing, Nicole, I didn’t win and thanks for reminding me), I’m just closing my eyes and jumping in. That, and adding in another Giveaway of 2 signed copies of Gluten Free on a Shoestring Bakes Bread. Woohoo! This is gonna be a dead simple giveaway.

Terms of This Signed Book Copy Giveaway

  1. Leave a comment below (saying whatever you like, as long as it’s polite!) and you’re entered. Done. Comments on Facebook don’t count. Emailed comments don’t count! Just sign in the Disqus in one of the many ways it allows, and comment away. Hopefully about something related to gluten free bread? I dunno.
  2. Giveaway ends Sunday night, February 9, 2014. Like, before I go to bed. And I’m no night owl. Sorry about the Morning Person thing. It can be very annoying, I know.
  3. Signed books go out from my local post office on Monday (okay, Tuesday at the latest if I have any trouble getting winners’ addresses).

**ETA: The giveaway has ended! The winners have been emailed! If you didn’t win, don’t worry. I’ll do another signed book giveaway very soon!**

Lean Crusty White Gluten Free Sandwich Bread from GFOAS Bakes Bread

How The Day Went

Here’s what we did: 3 loaves of Lean Crusty White Sandwich Bread (page 43 GFOAS Bakes Bread). They took forever to rise. Hello! It’s really cold and dry in Minnesota in January! So, we had to be super patient. Ask Anneke what happened. Okay fine I’ll tell you: I just kept saying, “It’ll be fine. Just hang on.” And … it was! Read the Bread FAQs. All true.

Anneke was totally prepared. She had a big batch of the Bread Flour from pages 8-9 (want a calculator to do the math for you? go here). And lots and lots of 2 liter proofing buckets of gluten free bread dough proofing in the refrigerator, most for 2-3 days.

Baking Gluten Free Pizza from GFOAS Bakes Bread

We made lots and lots (and lots!) of pizza for lunch. It was fabulous. She shaped rolls…

Shaping Gluten Free Hoagie Rolls from GFOAS Bakes Bread

This is all pictured in Chapter 3 of Bakes Bread, and you should know that Anneke was pretty nervous. But she was a total pro! She just had to relax and trust herself. You don’t need my 2 old lady dishpan hands there with you. You have the step by step photos in the book. And you have my voice in your ear. Well, at least you have however you think my voice sounds from the way I write. Or something like that.

Gluten Free Bread Baking and Proofing

We had bread in the oven (look! the 3 loaves from above) and rolls proofing on the stovetop. It was like a regular day in my own house!

Baking Gluten Free Bagels from GFOAS Bakes Bread

Oh, right. We also made bagels (that’s Donia with Anneke’s mom—she and Anneke are friends and she traveled 7 hours by car to hang out with us, too! Jennifer came, too, but she stayed far away from the camera). Anneke’s family ate them speedy quick, hot out of the oven. With butter. Like you’re meant to do.

Baking Gluten Free Bread from GFOAS Bakes Bread

Anneke’s mom, Hilma, did so many dishes, and I did comparatively so few, that my horrible dishpan hands actually started to heal a bit. We worked from 7:00 am (really!) until about 6:00 pm. The children (not pictured, but trust me they are adorable!) were kind and helpful and well-behaved. Amazing. And mother and daughter are comfortable and respectful around one another in a way that I can only dream of for when my children are grown. *sigh*

Some Free Recipes From The Book

Don’t have your copy of Bakes Bread yet (whatcha waiting for?)? Here are 4 recipes from the book (below) to get you started. You know, to convince you that it really does work and it really is a Gluten Free Bread Revolution!

Let’s Bake Together, You and Me

Oh, right! I almost forgot: Would you like to Bake Gluten Free Bread Together? I can’t afford to pay for another trip across the country, I’m afraid (none of this was sponsored—it was all on me, so that I could do it my way, without having to pander to one brand or another). But I would be willing to hop in the car and travel a reasonable distance (say, about 200 miles in any direction from New York City?) if YOU (yes you!) would like to organize a Gluten Free Bread Baking Class for me to teach. My time will be free. The rest is up to you! To reach out, leave a comment below letting me know that you’d like to organize a class, or contact me through the form on the blog. We’ll bake whatever bread recipes you like, and you and your friends and acquaintances can take it all home!

Thank you, Anneke for hosting such a wonderful day, Hilma for being such a gracious winner, and Donia and Jennifer for coming from far and wide to bake with us!



P.S.  Don’t forget to enter to win a signed copy of Bakes Bread by leaving a comment below! Giveaway closes Sunday night, and books go out right away. Want to organize a gluten free bread baking class? Let me know!

    I really miss baking, I haven’t baked since I found out I am gluten intolerant. It’s hard to know the flours to use and scared of wasting money. I could really use the book to help me with getting back to what I loved to do bake and cook

    I already have the bread book, but I’d love to give it to a GF newbie. I’m teaching GF classes at our local culinary school. Oh, how I wish I were within your 200 mile radius, or I’d let you take over the one I have coming up about breads! ;) Which recipe would you recommend we do, since it’s a one-time class? I’d like to send them home with rolls for Easter, but not sure which recipe to use (from your original book or GFSBB).

    I am a very frustrated bread maker because I LOVE yeast bread, great texture, and whole grains. It is next to impossible to find a decent GF bread, until now. I am brand new to your blog but have been gluten-free for 5 years. I am ordering your cookbook and plan to try some of the yummies I’ve seen on your Facebook page. Please keep blogging!

    Making bread always intimidated me, until I had my twins. One of my twins has Autism with a Gluten sensitivity. I am now on a mission to fearlessly make bread that she will eat, as well as the rest of the family!

    I can’t believe I didn’t find this website sooner. I’ve been eating gluten free for 9 months because I’m breastfeeding and my daughter is highly sensitive. Once she’s done I’ll have to be careful since it’s been so long for me eating foods with gluten AND we just found out a few months ago that my husband is sensitive. All of the breads and bread mixes you find in the store are just gross. I wish I would have found this sooner because I’m still trying to figure out foods I can make, but I guess it’s better late than never. It’s healthier for you anyway

    I just have to add…. Oh my goodness! I have been missing the mother load! Wow! I just subscribed and I know I’ve been way to busy. I’ve totally missed out up until now on your blog! I’m so excited. I’ve only had my iPhone since Mother’s Day and I’m often forgetting how great a resource it is. I’m rarely on a computer. One question is your cookbook available on Nook? Well thank you again!

    Ooooohhhh! I would love to win a copy of your book. I work in a small cafe, trying to convince the owner to add a gluten free menu. Will most certainly be talking you up to my GF friends for a visit. How would you feel about WA state (in the summer when it’s beautimus, and the moss grows slowly ;-) Playing plenty with your recipes altering them to milk/egg free. Loving the results! Thank you so much for all the effort you put in! ;-)

    Hi! I’m I’m very glad to have received a post about your book. A dear friend introduced me to your recipes and I’m very thankful. I have a lot of trouble with inflammation and eating gluten free is a huge help. It’s been a long road and trying to find yummy bread. I’m so encouraged by the photos above and that the kids loved it too! I’m excited to bring gluten free foods to my entire family. The title on a shoestring was a great pick! It caught my attention. Thank you for all of your hard work and the gift of free recipes.
    Happy baking!

    Too bad I don’t live closer…if you thought Minnesota was cold come a little further north to Manitoba, Canada. We’re having the coldest winter on record or the last 100 years; something like that. Baking bread might help warm up the house!

    I was diagnosed with celiac a year ago. After trying gluten free bread I stopped eating bread as the smell, taste and texture are repulsive to me.
    A couple of weeks ago I stumbled onto your blog … I was intrigued by your precise well tested bread recipes. I was also totally intimidated by the thought of baking my own bread…. I didn’t think I had the patience or “knack” for it. And I also have an irrational fear of yeast. However as I spent more time reading your blog I began to believe I could do it so I bought your bread book, read and re-read the recipes and stocked up on all recommended tools/ingredients. I made the dough on Weds. gave it the long rise and baked the Lean Crusty White Bread today. It worked!!!
    Crusty, tangy delicious gluten free bread that I actually baked (with the help of your book, your blog and your video on shaping)!
    Nicole – you are the bread goddess!! Thank you for all your hard work!! I can’t wait to bake my way through your book.

    After many many years of pain, bloating and other nasty symptoms, I was taking lots of meds and not getting better. IBS, Crohns, colitis etc etc and no answers. Then a fellow sufferer I met put me onto a bakers that only made gluten free breads and cakes. After switching I felt much better. Now I’m totally gluten free and loving life again. Thankyou the two big G’s – God and Gluten free. Life is never straightforward though, I’ve been southbound since last Monday due to the floods here and have no flour to bake with (I make my own bread now). But soon the water will subside and that first freshly baked loaf will smell and taste soooo good I’m sure it will be worth the wait. Thankyou for your fb page and site and books- they are brilliant and I make sure people here know where to find you x

    I am newly gluten free and am so excited by the prospect of having a book to guide me in making bread! The first kind that I tried from the store, as I was wading into gluten free waters was horrible and kind of disintegrated in my mouth. I next tried Udis and while it was better than the first experience, I am definitely going to shy away from anything that requires bread in my diet, due to the poor quality and taste of the frozen variety!

    I would love a copy. I’ve tried reading the Kindle version but the pagination is really awkward to use when baking and Amazon UK only seems to have used paper copies. Thanks for all the great work you do experimenting, Nicole, so that we can all bake things that turn out right first time!

    I would love to win your gluten free bread recipe book. I’ve just recently become gluten free. I found out that I can’t have gluten about a year ago. It’s been hard finding the right recipe to make it taste as close to what I was used to from before I found out I couldn’t have gluten, because some of the bread you can buy at the store is just downright atrocious to me & some of the recipes I’ve found/tried I never end up with the right consistency. But from the pictures and the comments about how great your recipes are I feel like your book is the best match for me.

    My husband has to go GF because of nasty hives he started getting. The biggest problem is finding a bread that doesn’t crumble in his lunch. He works as a heavy equipment operator and sandwiches is the simplest way for him to eat a lunch. Hopefully I’ll win the bread cookbook so we can get him so bread! lol Thank you.

    As a person who believes that man can live in bread alone (I just really really love bread), the worst part of gluten intolerance is not being able to eat or make great bread. This book will be on my kitchen counter even of I don’t win it.

    It took my daughter getting really sick to find out that she needs to be Gluten-Free and no wonder I’ve had the same issues and didn’t realize it. Now with 2 granddaughters they are also sensitive. This has been a challenge to make time to make bread and other items so we could really use some more recipes. Our lives are healthier for having gone down this path. Thanks for the people on the internet who are open to help those who have no idea. Enjoy the weather.

    Eating, cooking & baking gluten free can be a challenge. Some people are not confident enough to even try to start the process of baking GF at home. Bread seems to be the most dreaded of all recipes for both newbies and long time gf’ers to master. With the help of your book, the fear and intimidation comes to an end. The feeling of accomplishment when you see, smell and taste a warm, homemade, fresh loaf of bread that you have made with your own hands is AWESOME!

From your useful flour blends to the most unique and delicious recipes, I use them almost every day, whether for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I go on your blog daily to see what is new (and to look at your mouthwatering pictures) and am in love with how you provide SO much help and advice to the GF community.

    I am new to eating gluten free and relearning how to eat and cook have been challenging. However, the biggest challenge has been baking. I’m so confused on the different flours and their combinations and what is right for what. I need all the help I can get and if this book is as good or better than the way you present your recipes on Facebook and your blog, then I think your cookbook would be a great place for me to start making sense of it all. Thanks for all you do!

    I am SOO excited about this cookbook! Living on a shoestring budget I have been copying as many of the recipes as I could from your Facebook page while saving my pennies to purchase it…. So if I’m lucky enough to win it , I can use my $ to buy another one of your books and I will have double the fun in my kitchen from now on! Thanks for helping make what seemed like a very daunting and difficult transition of feeding my family GF, Fun and Delicious !!

    Baking bread is daunting to me, and I am somewhat newly GF (and LF) because of damage from an infection that is unclear if will improve (also the cause could have been that I should have been GF). Also there is a groups of us up here in Boston who are Facebook friends with a food group who are all GF, some new and some not, who are learning together how to make GF choices. The book and bread help would be fabulous-missing great bread.

    I will be new to GF. I was told I can’t start until all of my labs are done. I was a little nervous about it because I thought I would have to cut out breads. I started following some GF pages, including yours, and am finding out differently. The breads above look absolutely delish! The more I research, the better I feel about having to make the change. :)

    I would be a hero to my family if I could make them bread. I have bought store bought, but only on special occasions because of the cost. As a result, I’m the only one who is GF. The kids love bread and it’s their go to snack. Would love this!

    I have been gluten free for 17 years and love to bake. In the beginning it was so hard that I would just resign myself to baking for others. The last several years I have been more adventurous, offering gluten free baked goods to friends and family. The recipes on your website look great so I know this book would be the perfect addition to my kitchen and give me more options! I can’t wait to bake the muffins pictured above!

    I know its normally all us gluten free people staring lovingly at pictures of wheat bread and not being able to have it but at the moment all the lovely GF bread and cake pictures are driving me crazy as after 10 years of gluten intolerance and wheat avoidance I’ve been told by my doctor to eat wheat for 3 months so that I can then be tested to see if actually I’m coeliac not ‘just’ intolerant. I want to get baking all this GF bread but can’t for another 2 months still as I need to keep up the wheat intake! I’ve even found 2 websites selling ultratex 3 in the UK so I’m getting prepared. OK, I’m getting to eat wheat bread but its not so much fun when you know its going to make you feel rubbish after you eat it.

    About a month ago someone told my husband gluten was the cause of her chronic migraines. Being a long time sufferer of migraines myself I decided to cut gluten out of my diet to see if it would help. I went from having 6 to 7 migraines a month to only have a couple right before my time of the month. It has been a lifestyle change, that’s for sure! I haven’t tried to make bread yet, I’m a little intimidated by it, but I’m going to soon as that is something I miss. I bought some gluten free bread from the grocery store and didn’t like it much.

    EEek! A friend just pointed me to this blog. I’ve been GF for almost 6 years, how did I not know about this. Especially this book! I’ve just started baking my own bread again, after assuming I could never do it and choking down that horrid stuff you have to toast. I used to bake all the time, so having bread smells in my house again has been lovely. But if I could branch out from my one tried-and-true recipe…BAGELS! oh, my, bagels….

I made my first bread the day after my Expandex arrived from Montana and my husband and I oooed and aaawed over the fabulous crust and rich flavor. You are my hero. Too bad I live in the mountain time zone, otherwise I’d plan a huge GF party and you would be the honored guest. Thanks for all of your wisdom.

      I hope you didn’t mean to say “forcing” in your caption of that photo. She is the guest in their kitchen and as such any respectable host would be horrified to allow her to clean up after she has sacrificed so much to be there!

    • Donia Robinson
      February 8, 2014 at 4:45 PM

      I only took a few photos of the day, but liked this one, and thought others might like to see it. Nicole mentioned doing dishes, and this happened to be of her standing watching Anneke doing dishes. I DID mean to write “forcing.” The winking smiley face following my sentence was intended to indicate I was teasing.

    • Jennifer S.
      February 8, 2014 at 7:10 PM

    • Anneke
      February 9, 2014 at 7:02 PM

      Michelle, I’m sure you didn’t mean to be unkind by not seeing the intended humor in Donia’s comment. As you may have read in the post, my mother, Hilma, did nearly all the dishes that day, and she was also a guest in my home. Perhaps I am not such a respectable hostess after all, but it isn’t really for you to judge. I also hope Nicole saw visiting my home as an opportunity, not a sacrifice. Rest assured, I am confident that we all had a fabulous day, sacrifices, dishpan hands and all!

I recently found your site and I am loving all your recipes. Thanks so much for all you do for us who are hungry and pitiful as we stumble through the gluten free bread-making maze. Your blog is so much fun and every new recipe makes me smile-like the kind of smile you get when you happen to realize that no one had discovered that pint of rocky road hidden in the freezer…

    That’s awesome! Were you there during their. -79° craziness?
    Oh, I’d so love to win a copy. Haven’t had the chance to grab one yet. Good to know the bread will rise in frigid MN…now I’m not as worried about if it will rise in my 50° kitchen.

    i got diagnosed with Celiac the week before Thanksgiving. that’s PIE season. it was devastating – but we managed. however, the intricacies of gluten free baking elude me. i attempted brownies the other day, and damned if they didn’t rise right up out of the pan, overflow onto the bottom of my oven, and proceed to smoke me out of my house. i’ve never seen anything like it. BROWNIES did this. so i would love to win this book – because clearly i need help. loads of it. ;) thanks for the opportunity!

    My husband is working through a number of food sensitivities including gluten and yeast. The yeast seems to be a very minor one but gluten is another story. I appreciate your posts and would love to win the book. Thank you.

    Baking bread for my family is my favorite hobby in the world. I have been baking bread since I learned how in my 5th grade home economics class. I learned to bake bread by making a basic white loaf but I have evolved. I have been baking Artisan bread since I got married, decades ago. Although a lot of people think this is strange, I am proud to say that my children never had store bought bread while growing up. My son who is a health fanatic like me have discussed going gluten free. The only thing holding me back is that I LOVE BAKING BREAD and don’t know how to do it gluten free. I follow your blog (your recipes look delicious btw), but I haven’t taken the final plunge. I had this book on my Christmas list but much to my disappointment, Santa did not bring it. I collect cookbooks, mostly bread cookbooks, and I would be thrilled to have your book in my collection. It looks beautiful! I pin all your new recipes in my Pinterest Group and they are always a huge hit. You are very creative! You are now my ‘go to’ gluten free blog. I look forward to your posts. I live in Sunny Florida should you decide to hand deliver the book. Florida is lovely this time of year! I am originally from Chicago so yes, this is beach weather.

    Our little boy is sensitive for gluten and LOVES bread. It is very hard for me to find the right European style bread – which he prefers. I wonder if challah exists gluten free – his other weakness. I would love to have your book as I need help to understand the new world I had to find myself in. Thank you!

    • Anneke
      February 8, 2014 at 11:14 AM

      Challah is in the book, Eniko! We almost made it that day, but my mom decided she could take it on herself — she is a much better bread baker than I am! I hope you get the book, just so you can make it!

I have all 3 books and have bought all the supplies . . . have made the English Muffin bread, but still have butterflies in my stomach to really get started — but I’m gonna do it!

    Your breads look AMAZING! I would love to win one of your cookbooks. I found your blog only a few months ago. My family and I have been GF for 2 years this month! I’ve never seen GF bread that looks as tempting and delicious as yours. My daughter (8) and I love to bake together. We call them science experiments because of all the substitutions we make to recipes to accommodate multiple food allergies. Meride

      You might be able to find another location to host us, Laura—like a place that offers baking classes, like a kitchen store, if they’re willing to clean the place beforehand for us. You sound like just the sort of reader I’d be honored to get to know better. :)

    Sounds like a lot of fun and learnin’! I would be ecstatic to host a baking party here in VA! Would you be willing to travel a little more than 200 miles? We’re about an hour SW of DC, and mapquest says we’re 300 miles from NYC. My daughter, mother, brother, nephew, and MANY friends are celiac, gluten intolerant, gluten sensitive or are GF for better health/nutrition. How big a group would you like? THANK YOU so much for sharing your recipes and experience to those of us navigating this GF path with you! <3 Oh, and a signed copy would be a nice bonus! ;)

    • February 7, 2014 at 8:07 PM

      I’m afraid 300 miles is just too far, Deborah! 200 miles is around the limit for driving there and back in one day, which is what I’m aiming to do. I so wish I could do it, though, as the bigger the group the better!

    I would so love to get a copy (a signed one would be icing on the cake) of this great book. It would be extremely handy as my mom, cousins both have to do GF and it appears that I might have to as well. I already do some things GF but it would great to have more recipes to make the treats (And from what I have seen might be able to) that I so love but fear I would lose if/When I have to go GF. Rest assured that if I do not win I will still look into getting a copy. Thank you for this chance though.

She joined your email newsletter and got me to join as well when she go tired of sending me the recipes that she liked. . We both been trying the recipes. Some have worked really well the first time and others haven’t, but we keep working with them and we love them. Thank you for what you do it has made a real difference.

    My dtr is now gluten, wheat, corn, soy, egg, and peanut free. I’m slowly getting the hang of the whole gluten free cooking though have only had luck with breads and a few adapted regular recipes. My GF cookies could have been hockey pucks! I’m still looking for the perfect, easy, nutritious bread that my dtr will not only eat but ask me to bake again. Too bad SC is more than 200 miles away because I already have a group of ladies ready to bake with you! Thanks for the work you are doing and the help you offer to the rest of us!

    I would love to make bread together, the kind you can eat! The recipes and site and support have been a godsend to me. I am trying to assist my son cope with his gluten intolerance. My neighbor lives a gluten free lifestyle and buys everything from the bakery. I made a loaf of bread for him and he disliked it, however, my son (and I) loved it! In fact, I like the bread so much, that I prefer it to gluten-full bread. I attempted a birthday cake for him today since we are celebrating his birthday at a restaurant tomorrow. I think it tastes awesome. I don’t think anyone would guess it was gf. Looking forward to the fluffernutter cookies (for me and maybe my son if I don’t eat them all!) I am a SUCKER for marshmallow fluff. I eat it out of the jar…I hope what I admit on gluten-free on a shoestring, stays on gluten-free on a shoestring :-) Thanks again for all your help.

    Nicole, I have been dreaming of owning your books since I found your blog! I know own all 3. Even though I haven’t started on your latest book (scared!) I just made your cinnamon bun cupcakes! They were fantastic. I thank you for each recipe that I receive, as a gift to me. I no longer feel deprived.

    • February 7, 2014 at 6:15 PM

      They look fabulous, Annette! Love those cupcakes…. Don’t be scared of the yeast bread, though. Like I tell my kids, you don’t have to do many things you don’t want to do, but you never want fear to dictate your actions. Decide from a position of strength, and your decision will be the right one. Be not afraid!

    So I have to admit . . . though I am not new to gluten free baking and my family chooses my homemade pizza over the local pizza place, my husband declares that my chocolate chip cookies rival those from his younger days, and I can feed the men in my husband’s church group without them having any idea they are eating gluten free, I am SCARED to death to dive into your new bread recipes! I think it’s the new ingredients that are unfamiliar to me . . ultratex and the whey protein isolate. I don’t know what my problem is! My closest girl friend always tells me how impressed she is that I just jump in and try new things without fear of them not turning out. Well, I just met fear! Maybe it’s the fear of buying these ingredients, failing miserably, and staring at those ingredients wondering if they’re laughing hysterically at me. Then there’s the daring, more logical side of me that says, “First of all, bread ingredients can’t laugh” and secondly, even if they could, “You are better than some protein and starch!” So, step one, get your book. Step two . . . Mental chatter: “Fear is just a little chicken.” Step three . . . bake some bread!

    I love your book. Going gluten-free has changed my life (digestive tract issues all my life with the accompanying lower and upper GI explorations). No one EVER suggest gluten! I read Grain Brain and decided to try it! In 3 days, my life was changed. Now, 5 weeks later, I miss it but not as much as I LOVE feeling so well! Your book is a wonderful education (I love knowing WHY) in how and why this works. Thanks you. If I win, I will gift the books to others I know trying to do this.

    February 7, 2014 at 3:10 PM

    It looks like everyone had a wonderful time. My book, giant jug-o-whey, and Ultratex came on Saturday and after mixing flours over the weekend. I went to it on Monday and about to take my lean crusty starter out of the fridge from its WI winter nap. I used a ice cream bucket for my “bucket” proofer. Will any lidded Tupperware that is large enough for the rise work for this task? I didn’t want to waste precious ingredients until I knew for sure this improvised proof bucket worked.

  • Margaret Schultz
    February 7, 2014 at 3:09 PM

We made delicious cookie boxes with 7 different cookies! Thank you thank you thank you :)

    Nicole, first thank you for all the effort and information you provide in this blog. For the past 9 months I have been dealing with vertigo (from mild to extreme) and migraines. I went back and forth to my primary and ENT specialist. I have never responded well to pharmaceuticals and after taking several medications with no real relief I decided to see an integrative medicine specialist. His diagnosis – toxicity and inflammation. I did a 10 day supervised detox and now cannot have gluten, sugar, dairy or peanuts. To say it’s been challenging is an understatement. I LOVE sweets and I miss sandwiches. I am going to attempt to make your bread recipe this weekend so I can at least have tomatoes on bread :). Thanks again for all the work you do. This is definitely a lifestyle change for me. And even though I would rather have a free copy of your cook-book, I know it will be worth the purchase price if I have to buy it.

    A little background: daughter at 46 decided to go back and finish her degree and go on for her Masters (I am so Proud of Her) but she was diagnosed as gluten intolerant, but with working 2 jobs, school and a son who has joined her in college her cooking time is as limited as is her money. So Mom is learning to cook GF along with supplying a lot of the ingredients. Yours was the first site I found and of all the GF site’s I love yours the best. You are so crystal clear in your instruction and I really need that as I am changing the way I have baked for years. So thanks for an awesome site and I can relate to the cold as my kitchen temp today is at 67 and the heater is running full blast.

  • Turbomama

    I would absoluetly love to win a book! I live above Minnesota is Canada – so now you can imagine what my baking experience is like. I did have my most successful batch of gluten free bread this past weekend, and I was pumped! I’ve been at it for 9 months for my precious 3 year old daughter.

    I love your daily posts on gluten-free recipes. You have totally impacted the gluten-free population. I have lots of other gluten free recipes, sources, classes but nothing is close to Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Blog. Love, love, love your willingness to share and your cookbooks too!

    • February 7, 2014 at 6:06 PM

      Thank you, Mimi! That means more to me than I could possibly explain. :)

    I’d love a copy of your new book to add to my collection of Gluten Free on a Shoestring library. (and I already know who I’d share the other book with). Your blog is the BEST. Love all your recipes. They always turn out perfect.

    The best thing about the gluten free bread in GFSS Bakes Bread is not that the dough is like real dough, the beautiful loaves and rolls, or even the great taste. No, the best thing about this gluten free bread is that it actually fills you up! (Oh, and the other things are good too!)

    • February 7, 2014 at 6:07 PM

      So funny you should say that, Tamar! I love that, when I give my children a meal with bread (like last night, they had tomato soup with Asiago Cheese Bagels (recipe next week!)) they don’t ask for second helpings! *what a relief* ;) Thank you for the kind words!

    Nicole, I am soooo glad that you put pictures and what you did with Hilma. It makes me feel good to know that you really did have winners for the contest. And congratulations Hilma!! How lucky you are. I would love to have you come here for a gf class but I am too far away for you to drive. Maybe sometime in the future I can buy you a plane ticket to here (Ohio) if you would be willing. Perhaps I’ll look into a place where it could happen as my house is way too small for that. But again, in the future. :)

    • Anneke
      February 7, 2014 at 4:15 PM

      My house is pretty small, too, Cindy! Nicole can adapt!

    • February 7, 2014 at 6:09 PM

      It’s like that Food Network show from years ago where Tyler Florence would show up in people’s houses and cook in their kitchens with their tools and still make it happen? It’s like that—except it’s just me (*wah wah*) and not Tyler Florence. ;) Small is not a problem!

    Perfecting homemade gluten free bread is a challenge for me. I’m somewhat of a perfectionist and very competitive, so if it doesn’t come out right then I keep trying. I am so grateful for your recipes, notes and countless hours of baking and blogging to help your fans make baking so much more rewarding than if we were on our own…thanks Nicole!!

    I’m 65 and have always baked. With recently finding out I have a husband, daughter, and grandson all needing gluten free baking and cooking, reading labels and learning new ways to fix things we love has been trials and errors and challenges until I bought your first two books. You have simplified all and made it fun again to cook. Thank you so much and keep the daily e-mails coming. I would love your new book too.

  • Amber Howboutno

    OMGOSH… Nicole you have saved my life.. My 17 yr old suddenly had huge digestive issues and was forced to go gluten free.. you and your great pretested recipes have saved us… she cried when she had top give up rolls, cereal, bagels… I have the first 2 of your books and wish with all my heart to have a signed copy of your bread book….. also I am interested in getting a GFOAS bread class.. will talk to my local food co-op… You can FB message me or e-mail me at witchinthemaking@aol.com.. TY TY TY for all the hard work you have put into these great recipes and books.. as well as your great blog .

  • Lorna Leaman
    February 7, 2014 at 12:46 PM

    I have been less than impressed with the Gluten free bread recipes I’ve tried up till now. I’ve also been disheartened by the fact that most of the GF bread recipe creators are of the opinion that you need a stand mixer(something I don’t own and don’t really have room for). I’ve tried some of your other recipes and have really enjoyed them. Had just about given up on ever enjoying GF bread…but now I’m ready to give it another go! My delay right now is deciding to get the actual book or to buy the Kindle version. Sure would be nice if you made the decision for me! Sure would love to attend one of your classes…but I’m way more than 200 miles from NY (in British Columbia….probably more like 3000 miles). I’ll just have to suffice with the books (yes I want them all) and your e-mail list.

    My husband was diagnosed with celiac disease about six years ago, and our lives changed drastically – and then changed again for the better when we found the first GFOAS cookbook (and Better Batter flour). We rely on your recipes and great advice every day, and would love to try some new bread recipes. Looks as though you had a wonderful time with the family in Minnesota

  • Sherry Bingham
    February 7, 2014 at 12:24 PM

I am new in this area and it has been very hard to find breads that taste good and I have never made GF breads before. My 9 year old son has been diagnosed with HLA B27 as well as Hashimotos with nodules; he has terrible gut issues that makes him very sick and is painful. Both requiring GF. Please let me know what the possibility would be for you to come here and how we can make that happen…❤️ Have a blessed day!

    I have tried a few of your recipes and love the yeasty taste, unlike most of the Gluten Free breads I have baked before. I do have to make conversions to high altitude, almost 10,000 feet in the Rockies. Having the hard copy of this book would be great! I could keep all my conversions with each recipe. I would love to win this book! Thanks for your posts with all of these fabulous recipes!

    • February 7, 2014 at 11:45 AM

      That’s really wonderful that you’ve been able to figure out the proper conversions to make the recipes work for you at high altitude, Kim. Would you be willing to share some tips for others at high altitude? I’ve never been able to offer them any concrete advice since I can’t recreate the condition!

    Ok that bread looks like real bread …I’ve been hesitant to get the book, because I’m always disappointed in the outcome. I think I’m ready… Having gone gluten free has been very hard for this bread loving girl. So here’s hoping for a few signed copy!

  • Deborah

    Hi, Nicole! Thanks so much for doing this! I would love for my mom to win this…she is gluten free and baking is her love language. She makes bread every week for my family to ear but can never have any herself! I would love for her to learn how to make bread that my family will all eat but that she can enjoy too. We live in Virginia but I would be happy to pitch in for travel expenses since its about 300ish miles.

    • February 7, 2014 at 11:19 AM

    Are you kidding me! My GF bread never looks that good! Can’t wait to get in the kitchen with your book and set of recipes! I grew up in the kitchen – baking since I was 5. Since being diagnosed with Celiac Disease this past November, my world was turned upside down! Instead of spending time baking my tried and true recipes, I’m back at the drawing board learning how to bake all over again ~ with all different ingredients. So far, my dogs are loving the failures.

    • February 7, 2014 at 11:18 AM

      Oh Deby that’s almost unfair, mentioning flip flops like that! If someone wanted to pay my expenses I’d get on a plane again to bake—especially in flip flops! ;)

    I got my celiac disease diagnosis two weeks ago and was delighted as the alternatives were life-threatening. Two weeks without gluten and I already feel like a new woman. Doctor says it could be six months or more to really feel like my old self (if I even remember what that was like), since there was so much damage. Having a wonderful time discovering people like you who are helping people like me make the life changes more palatable. Thank you!

    February 7, 2014 at 10:30 AM

    Awesome pics and what a wonderful day we had!!! It was super duper awesome folks and I learned a TON. I also gained a lot of confidence in making the recipes in the bread book and have been going to town. I however, forgot my cookbooks and didn’t get a single one signed. :( If I win, this one will go on the shelf not to be touched because my current one spills bread flour from it with every shake! :) Thanks for a great day Nicole!

I’m willing to give it a shot, though, if you are every in Colorado! We have sun 360 days a year! Baking another loaf of oatmeal today, and some of those tasty Paleo crispy chocolate chip cookies!

    • February 7, 2014 at 10:28 AM

I’ve been gluten free for about three months due to an autoimmune issue and I am so grateful for all the recipes and information readily available.

I can make evil gluteny bread. Its soothing and relaxing until I turn into some crazed maniac from eating the product. I really would love to figure this out. the next bread making session I have to win.

    That was so nice of you to travel and do a hands on event with the winners. Having someone there who knows what they’re doing can really boost your confidence!
    I have your 1st book and loving it!
    Not only are your recipes great but I feel like you are one blogger who is down to earth, been through the good and the bad (just like us) and you make things people want to eat and have been missing out on for years.
    Keep up the great work..!
    P.S. is Ohio to far to travel??????

    I’m kinda wishing I lived closer to New York now! Are you sure you don’t want to come to Orlando? We could go to Disney World after baking bread. :-)

    • February 7, 2014 at 10:24 AM

      Oh that would be so much fun, Alexis! I wish… :(

    I have my first batch of bread rising in the fridge!! It’s going to be for thick crust pizza! My husband is so excited because he is tired of only getting the thin, cracker crust. I was really nervous and I still am, but I keep hearing your voice (or at least what I think it sounds like), “Trust the process.” Love you blog. I have two of your cookbooks on kindle, so it would be amazing to win one of these. Love you, thank you for being wonderful and I will email you pictures of the pizza! <3

      I have always had a tough time making pizza, Laura, but I can tell you that the thick crust pizza works great! The dough handles beautifully and tastes delicious. Follow Nicole’s directions and you will have no trouble!

    I have just decided to go gluten free because of an autoimmune disease. And I’m interested in making my own bread. I’ve been searching the net to find recipes but it is very intimidating.. I love to cook and bake so I need to retrain my way of thinking. Thanks and GOD bless!

    Anneke is every bit as lovely as I imagined her to be. I had a gut feeling one of the Minnesota ladies would win. ; ) Sorry Jennifer was so camera shy but I’m sure she too is as lovely as Anneke, Donia, and Nicole. Wa-hoo!
    Only wish Detroit was next door.

      February 7, 2014 at 11:21 AM

      Thanks, JoAnn! You are so kind! It was actually my awesome mom who won, but she and Nicole agreed to do it in my kitchen. Which meant Nicole had to fly out here (and so did my mom), instead of a quick drive to PA. Made me feel like the winner, for sure!

    • JoAnn C.

    Jealous! I’m craving gf cinnamon and bread varieties. I have a staple recipe, but it gets boring. And I need to make another bulk flour order soon. I’m amazed at your recipes. If I don’t win the book I’ll have to add it to my amazon wish list.

  • Karin K
    February 7, 2014 at 9:28 AM

    We’ve been gluten free for three months. I have three kids ages 6,4,&20 months. Bread is so expensive and the shipping to buy in bulk negates the savings. I would live to be able to make bread my kids will eat. Your soft pretzels were great! Thanks.

  • Deb
    February 7, 2014 at 9:28 AM

    Do you have recipes for bread without yeast? Do you know a substitute that can be used?

    • February 7, 2014 at 10:25 AM

      No, Deb, you can’t substitute anything for yeast in a yeast bread recipe, but in my second book I have a number of yeast-free bread recipes.

  • LeAnn
    February 7, 2014 at 9:27 AM

    I love this book. My daughter in law needs this book. So If I win it would be great. If not I’m just going to have to get her . Book. Or I can gat the signed copy and she can have the old book.lol its a great book either way. The only thing I don’t like is waiting for the bread to proof in the fridge. It is worth it though. Thanks for your hard work.

    I hate to brag, but I won a couple ribbons in the gluten-free category at last year’s Minnesota State Fair (okay, you got me, I love to brag). I bet I could sweep all of the categories if I had the magic of a signed copy of this book!

    • February 7, 2014 at 9:11 AM

      Bragging is the best part of baking!

      The gluten free category would be a breeze, but enter the conventional category … and win!

    Oh my goodness, this is fabulous! I love the idea of baking bread, but then I think about the gluten in all of the pretty breads…. but if I can do this gluten free??? That would be awesome. I live in State College PA, and would LOVE to have you come to teach a class on gluten free bread baking! I have a great moms group that would benefit greatly with that….

    • February 7, 2014 at 8:55 AM

  • Jackie
    February 7, 2014 at 8:51 AM

    Awesome! Yes, baking in Minnesota in the winter can be a challenge. It’s cold (!) and drier than a desert. On the flip side, it gets very humid in the summer – forget about making meringues! ;)

    • February 7, 2014 at 8:53 AM

      Anneke’s kids were telling me that it gets really hot and humid in the summer. That doesn’t seem fair! It’s like that in NY, too, though. So … we’re even. ;)
