  • Gluten-Free on a Shoestring: 125 Easy Recipes for Eating Well on the Cheap

    This book is a great for beginners of all kinds and those who just want to keep it simple. It covers all the basics, from full meals to basic breads and snacks.

    My first gluten free cookbook, Gluten Free on a Shoestring, was published in 2011. It’s packed with 125 easy recipes for eating well when you’re eating gluten free—without breaking the bank. Gluten free food is typically more expensive than conventional food, but with the right recipes and support, you’ll be eating even better than before. This book has recipes for everything from gluten free breads, muffins and breakfast items to main dishes, sides and desserts.

    If you’re brand new to gluten free cooking and baking, this is the book to get you started out right. And I’ll be there with you every step of the way.

  • Gluten-Free on a Shoestring, Quick and Easy: 100 Recipes for the Food You Love--Fast!

    The title says it all, quick and easy was the goal for all the recipes in this book, cook gluten free in about 30 minutes or less.

    My second cookbook, Gluten Free on a Shoestring Quick & Easy, is perfect for everything from fast weeknight meals and weekday breakfasts that keep you going all day long, to breads and sides to round out those meals, and sweet desserts to slow down for a minute and enjoy. Every recipe from "Quick and Easy" is ready in about 30 minutes, and utilizes kitchen tips and shortcuts that will keep you calm and on-track.

    There’s even a whole chapter on Make-Your-Own Gluten Free Baking Mixes for every sort of cake, muffin and cupcake imaginable to mix up and have on hand for every baking “emergency.”

  • Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Bakes Bread: Biscuits, Bagels, Buns, and More

    This one's all about baking gluten free bread, from bagels, to loaves of every kind - you can have really good bread again!

    My third book, Gluten Free on a Shoestring Bakes Bread, raised the bar on gluten free bread. We can now bake gluten free bread that looks, tastes and smells like the artisan-style conventional breads we remember. The method and dough are even familiar from gluten-containing breads past. If you’re looking to take your gluten free bread baking to the next level, and make everything from light and fluffy English muffins and chewy New York-style bagels to gluten free “rye” bread to every variety of gluten free pizza, from thin crust to thick, and every loaf of bread in between, consider joining me in the Gluten Free Bread Revolution with my new methods and recipes.

    Through 10 years of baking and experimenting, I’ve put together not only the gluten free bread recipes for every sort of pizza, loaf of bread and roll you’re missing, but the answers to all your questions. Yeast bread baking, gluten free or not, is as much art as science, and it can take a bit to get your bearings. But I’ll be there for you every step of the way.  

  • Gluten Free Classic Snacks: 100 Recipes for the Brand-Name Treats You Love

    Everyone should be able to enjoy a Kit Kat from time to time. This book shows you how to make tons of famous snacks from Gold Fish to Thin Mints.

    My fourth cookbook, Gluten Free Classic Snacks, is filled with copycat recipes for all the packaged cookies, crackers, breakfast and fruity treats, snack cakes and even candy bars like Twix and Kit Kats. I develop gluten free recipes with one goal in mind: to help people to enjoy their gluten free lives fully. Can you live the rest of your life without ever again having a Pop Tart, now that you’re gluten free? Of course you can! But what about when your kid says “My friends eat those bags of little chocolate muffins called Little Bites a lot during lunch. What do those taste like?” Sooner or later, what you can’t have begins to take on special importance. I’m here to tell you that you can have it all back!
