F09352 - "Simply...Gluten-Free Desserts" by Carol Kicinski
Amazing book, the receipes are awesome! We are a family of who and all cannot tolerate gluten...so hard with my kids but this book is truly a Godsend! Just made the red velvet cupcakes last week and we all were sooo impressed!! Have also used her flour mix to bake other receipes and the cookies/cakes are amazing - no one can tell the difference!!! THANK YOU Carol!!!
Hate Baking - Love This Book!
From one who isn't a very good cook or baker, and doesn't really have a lot of time to do it, I have come to love this book and it's wonderful recipes. This is one of the few cookbooks that I have where the recipe is all spelled out for you. The author goes into great detail about what and how of doing things. For me this was extremely helpful. I am not very experienced in the baking department, so the more that it is spelled out the better.
I am a also a cupcake-aholic and the Red Velvet cupcakes in this book are to die for - and way healthier as cupcakes go. It's nice to be able to enjoy that sweet without the white flour reactions. I'm pretty lazy and buying store bought is/was easier but after tasting this recipe...I will never return to the processed ones again.
It may take me a few months, and a few extra pounds to get through this book, trying everything out, but it will be worth it I'm sure.
My wife has already made many recipes from this cookbook - every one has been delicious! My favorites are Banana Nut Bread, Good Morning Muffins and of course, those Peanut Butter Cookies. I took a batch into work with me and no one suspected they were gluten free! My wife says that for the first time it is easy to bake gluten free, thanks to this cookbook.
Have made several of these recipes and they have all come out SO tasty! I know others who have made these desserts as well with great results! My favs are the Coconut Cupcakes, Pavlova, the Cream Puffs and Peanut Butter Pie - YUM!!! What I love best about this book is how delicious these desserts are and they're GLUTEN FREE!
I had such high hopes for this cookbook, but so far every recipe I have tried has been disappointing. I've followed every recipe direction exactly and my results have been poor, perhaps there is a few good recipes, but I have yet to find one. Wish there were pics for each recipe so we knew what to expect. Will have to check my receipt and see if it is too late to return, otherwise it was a waste of money.
