Giveaway: Cooking Light Gluten Free Cookbook

This giveaway is now closed. Commenter #7 is the winner!

First of all, let me say that the title “Cooking Light” almost turned me off of this cookbook. I don’t believe in cooking “light”!

But, as soon as I began salivating over looking through the recipes I was pleasantly surprised.

While many of the recipes call for such things as “low fat milk” (umm, what’s that?), that’s a small thing I can easily overlook.

By adding lots of butter. :-)

Cooking Light The Gluten-Free Cookbook: Simple Food Solutions for Everyday Meals features 150 kid friendly recipes.

This is good, because the wheat allergic person in the house is a kid.

I’ll tell you first what I don’t like about the book: it calls for a lot of prepackaged gluten free food items. For instance, the Bruschetta recipe calls for a GF Italian loaf. That’s fine, but I’m not able to pay $7 for a loaf of GF bread. I would have preferred if the book featured GF recipes for these staple foods.

But, all in all, it’s a wonderful addition to my cookbook collection. I can’t wait to try a few of these recipes out on my 5 year old. Such as:

  • Cinnamon-Raisin Muffins with Streusel Topping
  • Sour Cream Blueberry Pancakes (we love sour cream pancakes around here and Sadie usually gets coconut flour pancakes, which are awesome – but this recipe will be a lovely change for her)
  • Spicy Asian Noodles with Chicken

I’m also offering a copy of Cooking Light The Gluten-Free Cookbook: Simple Food Solutions for Everyday Meals to a winner this week!

Happy Gluten Free eating!

    I also prefer cookbooks that don’t rely on expensive mixes or premade items. But, I’m sure I could find dozens of recipes to try in this one anyway! I really like Cooking Light magazine and their recipes, so I’m sure I’d love this book. Thanks for the chance to win!
