The How Can It Be Gluten Free Cookbook: Revolutionary Techniques. Groundbreaking Recipes.
America's Test Kitchen - 2014
In addition, many people with chronic health issues experience relief of symptoms by following a gluten-free diet. But perhaps the largest growing market for gluten-free products is the segment of the population who have become convinced that a gluten-free diet is healthier and will help them lose weight. All too often, those who have to eat gluten-free are forced to settle for gummy, gritty baked goods and gluten-free products that are a far cry from the real deal. This is because baking without gluten is incredibly difficult and simple substitutions just don t cut it. With this book America's Test Kitchen has tackled classic baked goods including pizza dough and yeast breads that look and taste like the real deal. The bulk of this book is devoted to baked goods, from everyday recipes like pancakes, waffles, and muffins to cookies and bars, pies and tarts, yeast breads, pizza, quick breads, and cakes. But we also wanted to solve the problem of what s for dinner too so we rounded out the book with additional categories of recipes. A chapter on comfort foods tackles recipes like meatloaf, chicken tenders, and lasagna. The pasta chapter includes a recipe for our homemade GF pasta as well as recipes using our favorite brand of GF pasta. The grains chapter covers the wide range of gluten-free grains that are now sold in pretty much every American supermarket with an array of approachable, appealing recipes.

The Homemade Pantry: 101 Foods You Can Stop Buying and Start Making
Alana Chernila - 2012
Come on in, but be prepared—it might not be quite what you expect. There is flour on the counter, oats that overflowed onto the floor, chocolate-encrusted spoons in the sink. There is Joey, the husband, exhausted by the thirty-five preschoolers who were hanging on him all day, and he is stuffing granola into his mouth to ease his five o’clock starvation. There are two little girls trying to show me cartwheels in that miniscule space between the refrigerator and the counter where I really need to be.” In her debut cookbook, Alana Chernila inspires you to step inside your kitchen, take a look around, and change the way you relate to food. The Homemade Pantry was born of a tight budget, Alana’s love for sharing recipes with her farmers’ market customers, and a desire to enjoy a happy cooking and eating life with her young family. On a mission to kick their packaged-food habit, she learned that with a little determination, anything she could buy at the store could be made in her kitchen, and her homemade versions were more satisfying, easier to make than she expected, and tastier. Here are her very approachable recipes for 101 everyday staples, organized by supermarket aisle—from crackers to cheese, pesto to sauerkraut, and mayonnaise to toaster pastries. The Homemade Pantry is a celebration of food made by hand—warm mozzarella that is stretched, thick lasagna noodles rolled from flour and egg, fresh tomato sauce that bubbles on the stove. Whether you are trying a recipe for butter, potato chips, spice mixes, or ketchup, you will discover the magic and thrill that comes with the homemade pantry. Alana captures the humor and messiness of everyday family life, too. A true friend to the home cook, she shares her “tense moments” to help you get through your own. With stories offering patient, humble advice, tips for storing the homemade foods, and rich four-color photography throughout, The Homemade Pantry will quickly become the go-to source for how to make delicious staples in your home kitchen.
