Everyday Classics | Gluten Free Cookbook | Review and Giveaway

This is my dream cookbook…gluten, dairy, egg, soy-free and…family oriented. I am so excited to review this cookbook. I have been following Lexie’s Kitchen for some time now and am thrilled to say, I love her new cookbook. My family has already asked for the chicken and rice casserole again. I was hoping it would last for two meals and it did not (I’ll have to double the recipe next time). I decided to try the following recipes: Chicken Pot Pie, Chicken and Rice Casserole, Whipped Coconut Cream, Chocolate Pudding and, for the holidays, the Spritz Cookies. Chicken pot...

The Warm Kitchen – Gluten-Free Cookbook review and giveaway

Amy Fothergill, The Family Chef, is a local gluten-free chef here in the bay area of San Francisco where I live. She teaches classes at various venues throughout the area and I have enjoyed her classes thoroughly. She has a warm engaging way about her and you can tell she truly cares about people and their food sensitivities. Whenever I attend her classes, she always tried to make sure I had a dairy-free option to enjoy. Like me, she is a mother who has worked hard at healing her children through diet intervention. I have a lot of respect for her and her work. I am very excited to announce...

Sweet Cravings Cookbook Review and Giveaway!

Sweet Cravings Cookbook Review and Giveaway!

I met the author of this cookbook for the first time at the Gluten-Free & Allergen-Free Expo in San Francisco this past January. Kyra, owner of Crave Bakeshop, is such a sweetheart. At the show, I inquired about her cupcake samples being dairy-free which she informed me they were not. Later in the show, she flagged me down and produced a dairy-free version of her cupcake. Where she came up with this, I have no idea but she certainly made me feel that it was made especially for me. This is the kind of person she is…a sweetheart to the core. Her cupcake recipe featured below was the...

Lunches Kids Love – Cookbook Review and Giveaway!

All parents need creative meal ideas. It’s amazing the hoops I jump through to get this kid (Sammy) to eat healthy food and to understand the importance of eating nutritious foods for optimized health and brain function. For us, this eating style is a lifetime choice. We are genetically predisposed to food sensitivities so this is our reality every single day. I love it when a blogger and/or cookbook author helps me along the journey. Tracy Griffith nailed it with her creative, hands on cookbook for kids, Stealth Health Lunches Kids Love¬†Irresistible and Nutritious Gluten-Free...

Weeknight Gluten Free Cookbook Review and Giveaway

This is a beautiful cookbook. The photography is amazing. I love a cookbook with good photos. It is full of such interesting recipes that I had a hard time deciding what recipes I wanted to try. I decided to stick with recipes I know I could use on a regular basis so I tried the Spaghetti with Heirloom Tomatoes, Olives and Herbs, the Quinoa Tabbouleh salad, Roasted Fish with Lemon-Almond Bread Crumbs and the Socca flat bread (something I’ve never had before). I was super excited to use produce from my garden. Below are freshly picked cherry tomatoes and rosemary. First, I made the...

Paleo Cooking from Elana's Pantry Cookbook Review and Giveaway!

The arrival of this cookbook was perfect timing. I’ve been leaning into grain-free living for about four months now and have to say, I think it’s better for my body. From what I’m learning, I think most people that eliminate gluten, eventually eliminate all grains at some point. This cookbook is also dairy-free which is an added plus in our house. The best thing I liked about this cookbook is that the recipes are simple. I was able to find several good family meal options. I made the flank steak twice and the family gobbled it up. This super simple kale salad recipe is my...
