September's Cookbook: Naturally Sweet & Gluten Free by Ricki Heller

Naturally Sweet & Gluten-Free
Allergy-Friendly Vegan Desserts

Naturally Sweet & Gluten-Free will prove that you can have your cake and great health too! The desserts and other baked goods found in this book were inspired by the author’s decision, after decades of baking and indulging in unhealthy sweets, to radically heed her body’s wake-up call and radically alter her diet.
The book features:
- 100 dessert recipes all free of gluten, eggs, and dairy; many are also soy-free (or offer a soy-free option), corn-free (all but one!), and nut-free (or offer a nut-free option)
- Comprehensive introductory matter, including helpful information on: ingredients, tips & techniques, tools & bake ware, and an at-a glance pantry list
- The author’s first book, Sweet Freedom, is listed on Ellen
DeGeneres’s Web site as one of her top vegan cookbook picks

This is the first time I've chosen a dessert book for the cookbook of the month, but this one just looked too good to be true. I make no secret about the fact that this blog exists specifically because my son needs to be gluten free, and that's what I focus on, but he also has issues with dairy. I also know that many people who are gluten free also have other food restrictions to deal with, and this book offers desserts free from gluten, dairy, eggs, or refined sugar, which I think may be of interest to many of you who read the blog.

This book is being released this month, and I'm excited to announce that not only do I have an interview planned with the author, I will also have a physical copy of the book to give away to one of you! If you're interested in hearing Ricki Heller speak, she will be at the Toronto Gluten Free Expo this weekend.
