This easy-to-use cookbook focuses on creating simple recipes that minimize stress from three experts in the field. Most of the dishes use ingredients that are easily found in supermarkets and don't require the exotic flours, expensive ingredients or complicated recipes found in other gluten-free cookbooks. Here is a book that lives up to the promise of making real food for real people--real easy! With over 100 delicious and easy-to-make gluten-free recipes for every meal of the day from entrees, soups, salads, and appetizers, to desserts and other baked goods.
