People who follow a gluten-free diet—avoiding all foods with even a trace of wheat, barley, and rye in their ingredients—don’t always have the quick and cheap food options that their friends do…until now.
Gluten-free guru Nicole Hunn is back with 100 new quick-prep and make-ahead recipes for dinners, yeast-free breads, baked goods, snacks, breakfasts, and more. These unique timesaving recipes take advantage of readily available gluten-free ingredients and kitchen shortcuts. Created with the busy family in mind, Hunn shares her secrets to getting a complete meal, including bread, on the table in no time flat – all without breaking the bank.
Recipes include Super-Quick Cinnamon Rolls, Yeast-Free English Muffins, Easy Veggie Burgers, Weeknight Chicken Soup, Cheesecake Cookies, Make-Your-Own Yellow Cake Mix, and more. (Photo & Description from Goodreads. Source)
So this is it! The first cookbook of 2013. First, a little about why I chose it and how I plan to test it out.
I wanted a cookbook that was recently released, both so that I could see what was new on the market, but also so that I wouldn't be reviewing something that most of you have already bought and are using. This particular one caught my eye because a) it was written by a fellow blogger, who already published one successful cookbook, b) on a shoestring implies to me that the recipes are not going to cost a fortune in ingredients, and c) quick & easy when it comes to cooking is exactly my style. Not to mention the cover photo is gorgeous, and I'm a sucker for great images in my cookbooks. I want to know what the dish should look like when it's done. If I ever make donuts that look like the ones on the cover of this book, I will change my name the The Domestic Goddess.
I will be testing this book out over the course of the month, and writing my review for the last week of January. I will make at least one recipe from each section (Breakfast & Brunch, Breads, Meatless Mondays, Weekday Work Dinners, Shortcut Desserts.) There is a make your own mixes section too, and if I have time I'll also make one, but no promises. I'll be evaluating just how inexpensive, quick and easy they really are, as well as how good they taste.
Here's to a delicious month!
