Hey, I’ve got a surprise for you! Betcha didn’t know we had another ebook in the works, huh?!
My friend Kim (she’s the gal who is the rock star behind our church’s awesome clothing giveaway) and I have been working off and on for several months on what we hope will be a wonderful resource for you! Kim’s family has been eating gluten free for over seven years because of celiac disease. She’s got a husband and three young children and she’s an expert gluten free mom, which is why I tapped her shoulder one day a few months ago to see if she’d help me out with a project “in her spare time”. :)
Our goal has been to create an eBook that will provide you with recipes that are both gluten free and healthy…and oh so very easy to make. If you are someone who needs to eat a gluten free diet, you will really enjoy these recipes. AND, if you aren’t someone who needs to eat a gluten free diet…you will STILL enjoy these recipes!
See, here’s the thing: My family can eat gluten. I bought 500 pounds of gluten filled wheat berries last winter to prove it. But we have friends (like Kim and her family) who aren’t able to eat gluten. We want to enjoy fellowship with gluten free families and friends. We want to be able to take a meal to them when they have a need. We want to take special snacks to a potluck or party that our gluten free friends can enjoy.
And THAT’S one of the biggest reasons I wanted to put together this eBook. I wanted a resource available on this site that would help all of us, whether we’re gluten free or not. I wanted to offer help to those of us who want to show hospitality to gluten free friends but have no idea where to start.
Kim has been a fantastic source of information and has offered all kinds of tips for creating delicious gluten free meals, snacks and desserts. I’ve included some of my favorite gluten free recipes from the website, and Kim has added many more of her tried and true family favorites.
Chicken Enchiladas, Calico Beans, Cinnamon Almonds, Michele’s Salsa, Cloud Cookies…those are a few of the 34 great recipes we’ve included in Gluten Free and Good For You! We purposely chose to only include recipes that would require ingredients that you would normally have in your kitchen, not hard to get, specialized gluten free products. Just normal, everyday foods that you can prepare easily. We were out to prove that cooking gluten free foods is NOT hard. Because of Kim and all that she has been able to share and teach, I think we have accomplished just that.
I’ve had so much fun trying out some of Kim’s recipes as we’ve worked to put this book together. We needed pictures too, you know…so someone had to make the sacrifice and bake the Flourless Chocolate Cake. I selflessly volunteered. Yes, I’m a true friend.
Can you believe that cake is flourless? And made with sucanat? It tastes just…heavenly! A perfect dessert to share for a special holiday – for those who can have gluten and those who can’t!!
