Introducing the new gluten free cookbook, Gluten Free Small Bites‼️ You'll find 100 irresistible recipes for sweet and savory treats for on-the-go lifestyles and entertaining. Have a look inside with this 1-minute video!
Gluten Free Small Bites is coming! I know that many of you pre-ordered your copy already (thank you thank you thank you). I know what a leap of faith that is (the Look Inside feature on amazon isn't even live yet!). I appreciate it more than you know. More than words can say.
Pre-ordering the book shows all book sellers as well as my publisher that you’re excited about this book. That means that the resellers stock lots of copies of the book, and my publisher keeps printing them. They’re also much more likely to let me keep writing cookbooks. It’s more important than you might have realized, so thank you!!
EDITED TO ADD: Thank you to everyone who preordered, and contributed to making this my most successful cookbook launch EVER! Now that October 25, 2016 has come and gone, so have the preorder bonuses. If you purchased the book by the on-sale date, please do forward your dated proof of purchase to gfsmallbites [at] gmail [dot] com. Otherwise, until next time!
A Thank You
I would like to take a moment to thank my fellow gluten free bloggers who were kind and gracious enough to help me promote this book. They have most certainly contributed to its success so far! Please visit their posts and check out the recipes:
Brianna Hobbs of Flippin' Delicious posted the Gluten Free Coconut Shrimp recipe from Small Bites. She used the instructions for baking instead of frying, and showed how amazing those baked shrimp can be!
Michelle Palin of My Gluten-Free Kitchen posted the recipe for Gluten Free Cheddar Hush Puppies from the book. She also included photos from 6 other recipes from the book that she's dying to try, and was so kind and generous in helping to showcase everything Small Bites has to offer.
Sharon Lachendro of What The Fork Food Blog posted recipe for Gluten Free Sticky Barbecue Wings. She said that she owns some of the other Shoestring cookbooks, and that Small Bites is her favorite so far. I take that as high praise from a talented recipe developer like Sharon.
Mary Anne Kochenderfer of Mamma Smiles posted the recipe for Miniature Mac and Cheese Cups from Small Bites, and generously held a giveaway of the book that closes very soon.
Stephanie Sandler of Hudson Valley Parent posted the recipe for Miniature Mac and Cheese Cups, as well, and told a lovely story about her longtime love of mac and cheese—and her need for more convenience foods in her life. Doesn't that describe us all?
Erica Dermer of Celiac and the Beast shared her review of the book, plus the recipe for Gluten Free Coconut Shrimp. She's also been sharing tons about the book on Twitter. Thanks, Erica!
Chrystal Carver of Gluten-Free Palate also shared the Miniature Mac and Cheese Cups recipe, and I blushed when I read that this is her favorite of my 5 cookbooks. Thank you, Chrystal!
Finally, Sheena Strain of Noshtastic shared the recipe for Coconut Shrimp, too, and took some beautiful photos of her work. Lovely!

Now, we move on to some details about this exciting new book!
I want to do everything I possibly can to help you feel “ready” for this book when it comes out. You might be wonder if you need anything particularly special to be able to bake from the book the moment it arrives on your doorstep. Well, the good news is that you don’t need anything particularly special. You do need a quality all purpose gluten free flour, and a few cups of my basic gum-free gluten free blend. But if you have cooked and baked gluten free in the past, especially with my recipes, nothing should be at all unfamiliar. Scroll down and you'll find a “recipe” with the list of everything you need (with descriptions wherever necessary) to get started as soon as you get the book, including some of my favorite brands of the ingredients.
But first, watch the sneak peek video at the top of this post one more time (it's only about a minute!), and then scroll through these photos of a few of the recipes you'll find inside. These are some of my favorites!
An instant hit at any party, mozzarella sticks are dipped in a tempura-style batter, then in perfectly seasoned breadcrumbs and lightly fried.
Authentic gluten free falafel, made with soaked raw chickpeas and just the right herbs and spices. The ultimate Middle Eastern street food, made gluten free!
Savory waffles made with cheddar cheese and chives, plus crisp bites of lightly spiced fried chicken make this the perfect small bite. And like with almost every single recipe in this book, there are instructions in the recipe for a no-fry version, and a “BIGGER BITE” version, so you can make a whole meal out of it. It's like two cookbooks in one!
