THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED. The winning comment, selected by Random.Org is #6:
“As I mentioned above, I love to bake! I grew up with a mom who made wedding cakes and married into a family where Christmas cookies are a huge tradition. Baking has been the hardest part for me. I never imagined that I would struggle to make a chocolate chip cookie that is safe for my son to eat or that it would be a challenge to make his birthday cake. I’m a pretty good cook and could probably count on one hand the number if times I’ve had a recipe not work out… until my son was diagnosed with Celiac’s anyway, now I’ve probably quadrupled that number in the last 11 months!”

In celebration of our upcoming author event with local gluten-free goddess, Elizabeth Barbone, at our ‘Food Revolution Day‘ May Food Swap (Saturday, May 19th 4-6pm, Oakwood Community Center), Lake Isle Press graciously gave us a copy of Elizabeth’s newest cookbook: How to Cook Gluten Free: 150 Recipes that Really Work for a giveaway!
We are giving away one hardcover, spiral-bound copy, perfect to actually use in the kitchen as it can lay flat on your kitchen counter or cookbook holder, to a lucky reader (US Resident)!
The bonus: it will be signed!
We will draw & announce the winner on Friday, May 18th so that Elizabeth can personalize the winner’s copy on Saturday during our event! Shazzam!
Personally, what makes this cookbook so helpful is not only the 150 recipes that Elizabeth carefully & painstakingly created, tested, re-tested but also the loads of helpful step-by-step photographs that illustrate many “how to’s” in cooking, and not just gluten-free tips: How to make a vinaigrette, how to store & reheat soup, how to peel & mince garlic, how to dice an onion and then lots of Gluten-free gems: how to roll pizza crust, how to make fresh breadcrumbs, how to bread foods for frying or baking…. and the list goes on & on.
Many of the tutorials are in the 33-page “Essential How-To Lessons” Chapter but also peppered throughout the book, especially helpful in the Bread Chapter. There is even a special 2-pages on how to adjust for other food allergies, including the omnipresent CORN (yup, its in powdered sugar!).
There are 12 chapters covering everything from snacks & starters to soups, salads, burgers, breads, side dishes and desserts. Like I said before, the Breads Chapter is extra fabulous due to all other step-by-step photo guides. Honestly, these are the first recipes I plan to try as a mom cooking & baking for a kiddos with multiple serious food allergies, I’m always on the lookout for a workable, doable, tasty sandwich bread, boule and hamburger bun.
This is a serious go-to Cook Everything Gluten Free book. I’m proud to be able to give a copy away to away to one of our readers as it promotes not only cooking at home but home-cooking knowledge. I sooo wish I had this book when I was starting down the gluten-free path with my son Miles, almost two years ago.
