Gluten Free Girl and the Chef by Shauna James Ahern and Daniel Ahern. This is by far my favorite gluten free cookbook. It has recipes for real food that real people love–things like Chilled Asparagus Soup and Crab, Avocado, and Cucumber Salad with Tarragon Vinaigrette. Gluten Free Crackers, Pumpkin Soup, and Creamless Corn Chowder. This book includes the story behind the couple and 100 gluten free recipes.

I have been reading Shauna’s blog for, like, forever. I have also been anticipating the publication of her cookbook, “gluten-free girl and the chef” ever since I found out they were writing it. So, I was soooooo excited when their publisher emailed me and asked me if I wanted to receive a review copy. ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? YES, I do want one.  So, as we neared the end of our time at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, and were preparing to leave, I was getting antsy hoping the book would get here before we left. It came on Thursday.

Can't wait to try the recipes in this book!

First of all, let me say a big Thank You to Shauna and Daniel for sending me this book.  Second, it is one of the most beautiful cookbooks I have ever seen. Just knowing that I can eat anything made from the recipes in it, makes it soooo much more of a treasure for me.  While I haven’t had time to sit down and actually read the love story of Shauna and Daniel, I have looked through it several times, drooling over the photos in it. I can hardly wait to get to a town with a real grocery store so I can buy the ingredients to make some of the recipes.

And the recipes! OMG! can you imagine picking up a cookbook in your gluten free life, and seeing pictures like this:

Home made gluten free pasta

I am going to be making some of that gluten free pasta soon. And the Crab Cakes with Shrimp Mousse. And the Gluten Free Crackers. And the Carrot Cake with Ginger Frosting.  I’ll come back here in a couple of weeks and let you know how they turned out.

This photo makes me drool!

Back on August 31, I wrote a review of The Essential Gluten Free Grocery Guide, and said I would draw a name to win the book on September 15. Well, I just plain forgot to do the drawing. Shame on me!

Today, I wrote the names of the three commenters on that post on little scraps of paper, folded the papers into tiny little wads, then drew one of them out of bag.   And, ta da! Walt of From Out Of Left Field was the name I drew out.  So, Walt, send me an email at fabgrandma @ gmail dot com, with your mailing address, so I can send this book to you. I hope it helps your family find good stuff to eat in the grocery stores! I am so sorry it took me a month longer to draw the winner.

Emily Sachs from Triumph Dining sent me a copy of The Essential Gluten Free Grocery Guide, 2nd Edition. This book is a very good starting place for someone new to the gluten free diet. It is a straight-forward list of things you can buy in regular grocery stores that are gluten free.

Here is what Emily wrote in the letter she sent me along with the book:

“…The goal of this guide is not top replace thoughtful label reading, but to provide shoppers (particularly the overwhelmed, newly diagnosed) a starting poing to find the right products.  By helping people safely and efficiently allocate their label-reading time, we hope they can focus more on friends, famiy, and all the other things that make life special…”

The guide is set in sections that correspond to the different grocery aisles, and include Dairy & Eggs; Beverages; Baking; Canned & Packaged Goods;  Packaged Sides, Meals, & Meal Helpers; Condiments, Sauces, & Dressings; Cereal & Bread; Snacks & Convenience Foods; Baby Food & Formula; Frozen Foods; and Meats.


The products are listed in alphabetical order by brand.  It is very easy to find the products you are looking for by name. If you don’t know what brand is gluten free, just look up the item you want to find, such as Soup, then look at that page to see what your choices are. Easy peasy!

If you would like to win this book, leave me a comment or send me an email at fabgrandma @ gmail dot com, by September 15. I will choose a random name to win. Be sure I have your email address so I can contact you if you win.
