Gluten Free Bread Memories Giveaway - Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Bakes Bread!

It’s time for some new book fun! Today the Gluten Free Bread Memories Giveaway begins! Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Bakes Bread is allllll about bringing back the breads you love, the ones you remember, and making them at home for yourself, your family, your friends, your gluten free neighbor or niece or cousin. The best part? Everything from the method (no more weepy, wet mound of gluten free bread dough! long slow, flavor-developing refrigerator rises!) to the taste and smell and look? So much like you remember, you won’t believe you’re not cheating. It’s a Gluten Free Bread Revolution! That’s why this first giveaway (the next one will be announced next Monday, and it’s gonna knock your socks off – pre-order and you can enter to win them all!) is all about a Bread Memory, about the bread you miss the most from your gluten-eating days. On to the prizes!

Take a good look at the photo just above and everything in it (clockwise from top): mixing bowl, half sheet pans, Williams-Sonoma Goldtouch 1 pound loaf pans, a digital calculator (yes! you need it), a glass jar and wooden spoon, a 2-cup liquid measuring cup, and lidded proofing buckets. We’re not done. Scroll please. There’s more.

Gluten Free Bread Memories Giveaway - Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Bakes Bread!Again, clockwise from the top in this next photo: a Zyliss paring knife (for slashing bread dough – less scary than a lame), an oven thermometer, an instant-read thermometer (for checking to see if bread is done), measuring spoons, a whisk, a digital kitchen scale (essential!), a metal bench scraper, a flexible plastic bench scraper, a French rolling pin, and unbleached parchment paper. Know who sponsored all of this? No one. Me. Know what’s missing? A signed copy (or unsigned if you’d rather I not deface your pretty book) of Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Bakes Bread! It’s not in the photo … because I don’t have one yet! It’s being printed. *yikes*

Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Bakes Bread Table of ContentsI do have an electronic .pdf of the final pass pages of the book. And, since the Look Inside feature is not available just yet on amazon (any day? I hope!),  I have my publisher’s blessing to share the Table of Contents with you. That’s to help with the “is [this] recipe in the new book?” question. I had to piece together screen grabs of each page of the Table of Contents in my .pdf, but if you click on the piece of art just above (it’s one .jpg), you can enlarge it on your screen and see it a bit more clearly. As soon as Look Inside is active, I will edit this post to reflect that.

So … how do you enter The Bread Memories Giveaway? Easy! First, pre-order the new book from your preferred source (links below). Pre-orders from way back when? Those count! In fact, orders up through the end of the day EST on November 20, 2013 (when the contest closes) all count. Did you pre-order more than one book? Enter as many times as the number of books you purchased! You don’t have to pre-order to enter into the contest, but I sure hope you will. Please at least indicate that you are considering ordering the new book! Next, either post a photo of your receipt/proof of purchase by clicking on the camera icon in the comment form below or just include your pinky swear promise in the text of a comment that you either pre-ordered or are seriously considering it. Finally, in the text, tell us all a Bread Memory. A Bread Memory is a memory you have about the bread you miss the most from your gluten-eating days. So, it’s really a Gluten Bread Memory, but calling it that might be scary and confusing (for me!). See Step 3 in the “recipe” directions below for a full description.

I will mail one (1) lucky grand prize winner (selected through random.org) everything you see pictured in the first 2 photos above + a signed copy of the new book! Then, I will turn to random.org once more to select three (3) more winners of a signed copy of the new book!

In case you missed any of the directions, they’re detailed again in the “recipe” below. Good luck!!

    Mine is on my Christmas list, but I will order it if I don’t find it under the tree!

    My favorite bread memory is making garlic, rosemary, Parmesan focaccia. I ended up buying a stand mixer as a present for my husband so that I could make weekly focaccia. It turned out I always had to make 2 pans because the first pan out of the oven would disapear so quickly, there would be any left for dinner/guests/potluck because my husband and daughters would slowly wander through the kitchen and get a piece every time!

    Mine is ordered (Order #113-822-8929-338-4210 ) and I am anxiously waiting it’s arrival!

    After visiting my daughter who was studying in Marseille, France back in 2007, she took us to a small bakery at the train station as we departed for Italy. This small shop had less bread items than almost any other boulangerie that we had visited while traveling through Provence, and I ordered two baguette sandwiches to hold me over–one ham and cheese and one chicken salad.

    Although I am not generally an eater of large lunches, the seeded baguette really hit the spot, and I devoured the entire sandwich (much to the surprise of the rest of my family!) Only a few hours later, even though I was still full from my earlier baguette, I found myself eating the second sandwich–the bread was simply too good to pass up. Even after all these years, I still find myself missing the bread from that small sandwich shop at a train station in Southern France.

    Pre order is complete! I can’t wait to try out some recipes at holiday gatherings. My favorite bread memory is making sticky pecan rolls with my dad. He cooked a lot but barely ever baked. It was always a treat to see him get out the stand mixer to start a batch. I didn’t like pecans at all back then and would pick them off. If only I had known to savor the whole experience while I could!

    I ordered the book on Amazon and can’t wait to receive it! My favorite memory is fresh baked challah, which of course leads to the best french toast. My daughter misses this treat since her celiac diagnosis almost 3 years ago. I can’t wait to make her this favorite again.

    As soon as I finish here, I am ordering the book for my favorite Celiac!

    My daughter still remembers how excited she got when her Grandmother’s special tin of cookies arrived for Christmas. She loved all those tasty treats. After she was diagnosed with Celiac 3 years ago, she was very disappointed she could no longer eat her Grandmother’s cookies. She also misses those Swedish ginger cookies from World Market Cost Plus this time of year.

    I am pre-ordering a book for a friend and I am purchasing the ebook for myself as soon as it becomes available. I travel between Atlanta and Phoenix and I always want to have all 3 of your cookbooks available without carrying the extra book weight.

    My favorite bread memory is the yeast rolls I used to help my mother make every holiday when I was a child. I used to love eating leftover rolls with egg nog for breakfast after Christmas.

    My favorite bread memory is stopping on my way home from work to pick up a donut for my 8 year old daughter. When you’re 8 a blueberry glazed donut just seems to make the world a better place….until you’re diagnosed with Celiac.

    We found out that our baby has Celiac almost one year ago. We set out gluten free date and we asked her what she wanted for her last “wheat eat”…it was simple, a donut from the local shop. I went in and through teary eyes ordered her donut. I barely uttered the word blueberry and began to sob. I apologized to the lady and explained to her that this was my daughters favorite treat, and the last time she could ever have it. She cried and gave me those on the house.

    Almost one year later my daughter and I have made breads, cakes, cupcakes, some amazing Gluten Free on a Shoestring Mrs. fields cookies and even donuts together. My favorite bread memory I guess is really the time I get to share with my girl…and donuts!

    Ordered the book back in the summer. Can’t wait!
    My fav bread memory is this tiny bakery that I used to frequent with my mom during lunch breaks on my first job out of college. They made the most amazing bread bowls for soups. I had the best discussions with mom over those bread bowls. Do you have bread bowls in the book? Yum!

    Oops, I put my bread memory on the other page. I used to love to eat sourdough bread with clam chowder. Those were the days. Haven’t had a slice of sourdough since going gluten free. I preordered back on August 12 and look forward to the release of the book. I already have the other two. Order #112-8574835-1229000.

    I had my daughter in February 2001 after an easy pregnancy and a very challenging birth. It was so cold and dark that winter. I felt completely trapped in my house with this baby I didn’t understand. My husband and friends couldn’t even really reach me. So, I baked my grandmother’s cinnamon rolls and danishes. I remembered her comfort and love. I remembered while I rolled out white flour-y goodness that she’d faced challenges as a new mom, and we would eventually be okay. When I was diagnosed with celiac almost four years ago, one of my first thoughts (besides the fact that I would have really enjoyed the peanut butter sandwich more if I’d known it was going to be my last) was I would no longer be able to make Nammie’s cherry rolls and cheese danishes. I was crushed, but I physically felt so much better that I overcame my sadness and instead found you. With the help of your other two cookbooks, I learned how to replace everything that I thought was once lost. So, I ordered two copies of your baking bread cookbook. One for myself and one for my mom (who’s gluten intolerant, but in denial). Thank you so much
    P.S. We had our son in the very warm and sunny month of September!!

    I have ordered 4 bread books, one for myself and 3 for family members who also have to eat gluten free. I am really excited to make great breads like I used to be able to eat! My favorite bread memory is waking up to the smell of freshly baked buns which my Mother had been up for hours making. That’s how to get a teenager to get out of bed!!! Fresh buns for breakfast! Can’t wait for the books to arrive so I can BAKE HAPPY!

    I’m so excited for your bread book!!! Oh how I miss bread with all its “wheaty gluteny” goodness lol.
    My fondest memories are truly those of my mom regularly (weekly) mixing, proofing, kneading and baking BREAD!! From white bread to sour dough to cinnamon rolls and everything in between. I started to carry on the tradition to my own children but now I need to carry it forward Gluten Free Style!

    I solemnly pinky swear that I am up to no good- and that I am ordering the book. My favorite bread memory is of the Martha White bag mix “just add milk” chocolate chip muffins my mother used to make for me for my birthday breakfast each year prior to my diagnosis.I miss waking up to the smell of those muffins and how deliciously fluffy and chocolate-y they were!

  • Leah Rotman
    November 20, 2013 at 9:40 PM

    I just pre-ordered mine. I am so excited! My favorite bread memory is ulimately baking breads, rolls, muffins, etc. with my grand-mother and my mother. I do pf course miss tearing off a fluffy, yeasty dinner roll and the lovely flavor. But I miss the flavor and texture of a lot of baked goods ;). Thank you for everything you do! I tell every one I know about you and your gluten free magic! I truly don’t know what I would do with out you!

    One of my favorite bread memories is when we were stationed in Germany in the early 90’s. The home we were renting in town had these amazing wall heaters in the living room that were perfect for rising bread dough. One Thanksgiving morning, I made two loaves of bread before the family woke up. I set the loaf pans on the heater, covered with a towel and left the room. I came back later to find the whole family sitting in front of them, including the dog! The delicious aroma of fresh bread rising woke all those noses up!

    I pre-ordered in August (12-9920160-524743) and anxiously waiting as visions of bread dough dance in my head!

    Thank you for all you do!

    I am so buying this on Thursday :) …. My Bread Memory is simple … I LOVE cinnamon raisin bread toast … you know the one … that is got swirls of cinnamon and raisins all through it … I just can’t seem to figure out how to make it GF that same way …

    I pinky swear that. I’m super interested in ordering the book. I’m waiting to get my hands on it at the bookstore. :) I I’ve always gotta flip thru a copy of the books first and see if I can imagine myself able.to make the recipes. so far I’ve done great with your other two books. but it’s a g great excuse to go sit in the bookstore for coffee and quiet.

    I’m gonna use my 8year-olds memory because.she’s been.mentioning for the past few weeks now, she remembers when she. was 2, and we still ate gluten, and I took her to a local NY bagel shop. and we’d eat yum. I always had a cranberry bagel with pumpkin spice cream cheese, this time of year. and she’d have bagel knots which were extra bagel.dough in knots with a little frosting. she misses it, 6 years later. she remembers it from 2. I’d love to be able to make her a lovely bagel and maybe even some knots, depending on how your recipe works!

    I miss Pita Bread the most. I was born in Greece and ate greek food my whole life. I miss having a nice Gyro with soft delicious warm pita bread.

    I have not pre-ordered the book yet because I have already put it on my Christmas list. I just recommended your new book, existing cook books, and blog to two ladies at the grocery store today who have just had family members recently diagnosed Celiac. I recommend your site to everyone who asks me questions about being GF.
    My two most missed bread items since I was diagnosed in March are soft pretzels and homemade Swedish Rye bread especially toasted. I also miss the process of making bread. I loved to make the bread from start to finish and have the house smell like freshly baked bread.
    Thank you for your wonderful cookbooks and blog. Both make my life much easier now that I am GF. I also appreciate all the work you have done to make the flour blending accessable and easier.

    Since I ordered 2 books, here is my 2nd bread memory:
    When my children were young, I didn’t like them eating the garbage that was in sandwich bread, so I started baking bread for daily lunches. My son was in 6th grade when he came home one day and gave me a big hug and said he loved me SO SO much! When I asked what that was about, he said he traded his sandwich at lunch and it was disgusting. He said he’d never trade again and he loved me not making him eat the ‘nasty stuff’. hahaha. Kids are great!

  • jena
    November 20, 2013 at 8:52 PM

    I ordered 2 books back in July!
    I was always the bread baker in the family at holidays. Everyone loved the italian garlic bread SO much that I had to start making an extra ‘decoy’ loaf because the kids would quickly consume the bread before we could sit down for dinner. They would mug me the minute I walked in and would take off with the bread. lol! I think they were more disappointed than I was when I was diagnosed Celiac.

  • Mary Eastman
    November 20, 2013 at 8:49 PM

    I preordered your book in September and am anxiously awaiting it’s arrival. The bread memory is my husbands as I can eat gluten and he can not. I am his baker. He remember eating pizza Hut’s pizza and sags if he could eat gluten just once with no reaction he would eat a whole Pizza Hut pan pizza.

So excited for your next book to come out! Thank you for all your fabulous recipes and tips! You make GF living so much more enjoyable! :)

    November 21, 2013 at 1:44 AM

    Definitely ordering the book off of Amazon! And my favorite bread memory is when I was younger and would walk home from school. My mom would make bread every two weeks or so, and on the days that she did, you could smell it before you even walked in the door. That fresh yeast and wheat smell filled the air. The best part was that she would attach these small little pieces of dough to the end of the loaves that we called “pull-aparts”. This was the first part that you ate fresh out of the oven, the part that had the most crunch. I can still close my eyes and smell that smell. :)

    November 20, 2013 at 8:44 PM

    Ordered number 114-2418578-3949008. I miss my blueberry lemon scones. I had finally found the perfect recipe, light, fluffy, oh so good and eight months later was told I was gluten intolerant. Oh, and the sweet, yeast rolls, and a none bread item, my grandmothers chocolate chip cookie recipe that I finally figured out how to make them taste like hers did.

    I Preordered from Amzon for $14.78 and cant wait to get it. Making gluten free bread in my bread machine has been very challenging to say the least. Even with Xanthun gum I cant get it to stick like the good Udi bread we love so much! We really need to find a recipe that we like on a budget so glad you have the bread cookbook coming out. I miss the smell of the caramel cinnamon bread my mom used to make when we could have bread with gluten. I am buying a 2nd book for my daughter for Christmas. Thank you so much! Lisa

  • Lynne
    November 20, 2013 at 7:58 PM

    Ordered! Order #107-4307088-6875445 from Amazon. I think what we miss the most is actually the smell of bread baking. I used to bake a lot and the smell is comfort to my family :) I can’t wait to have that yeasty, wheaty smell filling my house again!

    (Part of my email from Amazon shows I ordered your book in June….
    We’re writing about the order you placed on June 18, 2013..). By the way, I already have your other two books. They are great!

    My bread memory has two parts: the smell and taste of fresh bread from the oven and, most especially, baking it with my Italian Nana. On any Saturday morning, I could expect a call from her to “come help with the bread.” Did I mention she lived next door? The kitchen table was covered with the proper paraphernalia–flour, bread cloths, yeast, measuring cups and a large stainless steel bowl.. Each bread-making experience was the same. I was reinstructed on the proper way to mix the ingredients, how much flour to use to keep the bread from sticking to the towel, and how to “rock” the gluten into submission. I enjoyed hearing, again and again, her stories of growing up in Italy. She said baking bread was a weekly affair; she and her 6 sisters took turns making the 20-plus loaves of bread the family consumed; every meal included bread.
    My bread-making experiences embrace not only learning the art of its techniques but very special memories of a wonderful woman and recollections of her Italian childhood.

    I ordered the book as soon as I heard! I love all your recipes, they make GF bearable! Thank you! Seriously, thank you. My bread memory? I was in the Canary Islands and the local farmer’s market had this bread–deep yellow in color, full of eggs and butter, and layered with caramelized onions and garlic. I could eat a whole loaf while walking through the market. I have dreams about that bread…

    I pinky swear I am ordering this book next week!!! My favorite gluten memory is centered around the *smell* of bread baking in my mom’s kitchen. I was in such anticipation for that first warm, crusty bite – butter dripping down my hands- that I would plant myself in front of that small oven window willing it to be done faster. Even now, just thinking about it makes my mouth water!

I really enjoy your site and the recipes I have been able to try so far have been amazingly successful, I am so very excited to tackle bread with your help!

  • November 20, 2013 at 9:09 PM

    I hope my hubby has pre-ordered your book. Sent him the link months ago and told him to buy it for me for Christmas. I’d call that a very strong hint!

    I pre-ordered your new cookbook this morning from Amazon. Can’t wait! I’m really enjoying your blog and recipes. I have two bread memories that surface this time of year. My mom always made sweet breads for the holidays – about 4 different ones. So loved them. Would eat them Thanksgiving and Christmas mornings with cream cheese. Very yummy. Starting to try to re- create them gluten free. Thanks for your help! the other memory is of the most tender, sweet homemade crescent rolls my aunt always brought to the holiday gatherings. Melt in your mouth they were.

  • November 20, 2013 at 7:49 PM

    I ordered my copy from Amazon. SO sad every time they email me an extension on the delivery!! I miss sourdough so badly! It’s so good with homemade soup, and it just doesn’t feel the same without sourdough bread. I can’t find commercially prepared sourdough anywhere, so I’ve tried and failed to make GF sourdough starter several times, and I can’t get it to work. I never had that problem with “wheat” sourdough starter. Looking forward to trying all the yummy sounding recipies you have listed!

    I ordered your new book quite a long time ago – August 8th, to be exact, from Amazon. I’ve been counting the days until its arrival ever since! I tried to copy the receipt over here, but I couldn’t get it done. I’m not tech savvy!

    The bread is miss the most is my Aunt’s rolls. She made them every
    Thanksgiving and Christmas and I followed the tradition and made 6 dozen
    for both holidays. They were called “One Hour Buttermilk Rolls” and
    they were absolutely foolproof. My nephew called them the “lip” rolls,
    because I rolled them out Parker House style (like my aunt and uncle
    taught me) and he said they looked like lips that you opened to put the
    butter in. When we would walk in the door at my husband’s family,
    everyone would start hollering, “the rolls are here!” and there would be
    a rush for the kitchen. Good memories!

    I ordered your new book quite a long time ago – August 8th, to be exact, from Amazon. I’ve been counting the days until its arrival ever since! I tried to copy the receipt over here, but I couldn’t get it done. I’m not tech savvy!

    The bread is miss the most is my Aunt’s rolls. She made them every
    Thanksgiving and Christmas and I followed the tradition and made 6 dozen
    for both holidays. They were called “One Hour Buttermilk Rolls” and
    they were absolutely foolproof. My nephew called them the “lip” rolls,
    because I rolled them out Parker House style (like my aunt and uncle
    taught me) and he said they looked like lips that you opened to put the
    butter in. When we would walk in the door at my husband’s family,
    everyone would start hollering, “the rolls are here!” and there would be
    a rush for the kitchen. Good memories!

    I can’t preorder, but I do plan to buy the book as soon as I am financially able…looking forward to it more than I can say!!!
    As for a gluten bread memory….I’m something of a breadaholic, so this is hard! What do I choose? Corned beef sandwiches on Rye? Croissants with chocolate? Cinnamon rolls? Maple bars? Soft pretzels? Deep dish pizza? See? Clearly I have a problem.

    If I Have to choose, I’d choose my grandpa’s famous biscuits. I remember him waking up early every time we visited and mixing up a batch of deliciousness without even looking at a recipe! I helped him sometimes, scooping flour out of the drawer he kept it in, turning the handle on the sifter, and cutting out the disks of dough. Papa’s biscuits are famous in our family. I live with him now, and he still makes them sometimes, just a few for himself. I enjoy the nostalgia of smell, but I’d love to be able to sit down and share one with him.

    This is my second entry – since I preordered 2 copies of the book. Thanks for all you do!

    I pre-ordered 2 copies of the book just now – one for myself and one for my daughter. My favorite pre-gluten-free bread memory was being able to pop open a roll of Pillsbury croissant rolls and have delicious flaky bread in just a few minutes.
