Cocina para Celíacos, the cookbook

My mother-in-law was worried about cooking for my son when we came to visit, so she borrowed a book from a friend called "Cocina para Celíacos", a Spanish language cookbook called "Cooking for Celiacs."  The book was first published in Argentina, and many of the desserts are typical to that country, such as the Alfajora cookies.  She offered to photocopy some of the recipes for me from the book, so today I went through it recipe by recipe, looking for those to take home.  It turns out that the book has more dessert recipes than anything else, but what I like about it is that many of the recipes seem fairly simple, with only a few ingredients and fairly simple instructions.

It turned out that she didn't use the book the whole time we were here, but I'm looking forward to trying out some of the bread and cookie recipes when I get back.  I love trying authentic international recipes.  My current goal is to become more adept at preparing gluten and dairy free recipes, and so in addition to some of the recipes from this book I have another cookbook that I'll be testing when I get back home.  I'm sure this will be disastrous for my fitness goals, but I'm trying to convince myself that I'll only have a bite and will give away the rest to my "taste-testers".  Let's see how that goes!
