Synopsis: From the author of The G-Free Diet and the co-host of ABC’s The View comes a vital book about scrumptiously satisfying gluten free food—with easy-to-follow recipes, healthy tips, and photographs throughout—for families managing celiac disease as well as anyone who is concerned about their intake of wheat and other grains.
Growing up in a family where everyone came together at the dinner table, Elizabeth Hasselbeck savored the signature meatball, lasagna, and ziti dishes of her grandmother and great-grandmother, and the pierogies of her father’s heritage. But a decade ago, the Emmy Award–winning co-host of The View, New York Times bestselling author, and mother of three was diagnosed with celiac disease, and the family recipes she grew up with suddenly became strictly off-limits. Or so she thought.
Getting rid of gluten, however, doesn’t have to mean giving up taste. Deliciously G-Free combines Hasselbeck’s knowledge for healthy living and passion for tasty food to bring you 100 delectable, easy-to-make, and family-friendly gluten free recipes. By adding a variety of other ingredients to the fridge and pantry, she’s perfected scrumptious gluten free versions of old standards and new creations that would make her relatives proud, including
• Breakfasts to Remember: Fried Egg Sandwich with Chipotle Mayo, Coconut Raspberry Muffins, French Toast with Caramel Rum Bananas, Blueberry Waffles, and Frittata
• All-Star Appetizers: Pork Pot Stickers, Stuffed Mushrooms, Smoked Salmon on Corn Fritters, Crab Cakes with Homemade Tartar Sauce, and Hot Artichoke Dip
• Mouthwatering Main Meals: Excellent Enchiladas with Quinoa Cornbread, Mac and Cheese, Lasagna, Veggie Pad Thai, Chimichurri Flank Steak and Grilled Asparagus, and Buttermilk Chicken
• Deliciously Irresistible Desserts: Chocolate Devil’s Food Cupcakes, Blueberry-Raspberry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Tiramisu, Yellow Birthday Cake, and Double Chocolate Brownies
Loaded with gorgeous photos, Deliciously G-Free also satisfies your taste buds with ideas for gourmet entertaining, kid-friendly concoctions, cool-weather comfort foods, and “Get Fit” gluten free recipes. Plus, Hasselbeck opens up about her own gluten free journey—from getting diagnosed to getting her family on board—and shares tips for how to stock your kitchen, prevent cross-contamination, and whip up gluten free flour mixes that literally take the cake.
Looking great and feeling good from the inside out is just one Deliciously G-Free meal away!
