The Ultimate Gluten Free Cooking Guide

Posted on June 20, 2020July 16, 2020Categories Gluten FreeTags

Do you struggle with gluten free cooking? If so, this is the must have ultimate resource. After over 7 years of eating a gluten free lifestyle, I’ve learned a lot about gluten free cooking and have created this gluten free cooking guide to help you save time, money and your sanity.

One of the first challenges I encountered with gluten free cooking was ideas on how to make gluten free cooking work for me.

There are endless ideas out there on how to make it work. However, I found it comes down to three simple ones.

  1. Make a list of your favorite gluten free ingredients.
  2. Research recipes you can make with these ingredients.
  3. Keep adding to your list of gluten free recipes over time.

If you follow these three simple steps then you will succeed with simple healthy gluten free cooking every time.

The next problem many people have is that there are what seems to be endless gluten free cookbooks. So how do you know which ones are the best?

I wrote this post with video that explains a few of my favorites. The reality is that over time you will find your favorites that work the best for you.

However, I do have some favorite gluten free cooking classic recipes. Here is a list of some of these classic and favorite gluten free recipes.

Once you have a nice collection of gluten free recipes, the next problem people often run into that I want to address in this gluten free cooking guide is the problem of money. Unless you are completely brand new to the idea of eating gluten free, you probably now that if you aren’t careful gluten free eating and cooking can get expensive. However, there are a lot of ways to do it without breaking the bank.

I’ve written a few posts to help you with this, however I also highly recommend you download my list of apps to help with this as well.

Gluten Free Cooking for Kids

Posted on February 28, 2017August 18, 2017Categories Gluten FreeTags ,

It’s one thing to have to cook gluten free as an adult but what about gluten free cooking for kids? Gluten free cooking for kids can be a challenge however, the book gluten free cooking for kids by Phil Vickery is here to help. I found this book for $3 on the specials table at Barnes and Noble and picked it up and I’m really glad I did. Gluten Frook Cooking for Kids is an extremely well written book chock full of information, step by step instructions and nice full color photos.

At the beginning of the book there is a list of gluten free alternatives to those foods that do contain gluten as well as comprehensive explanation of which foods have gluten. He has also included basic recipes for chicken stock, vegetable stock, a short pastry and two different gluten free flour mixes.

There is a nice variety of recipes for all ocasions including gluten free homemade baby food, popsicles, crunchy chicken mcnuggets, quiche, pizzas, and more. The only downside to this book is that it is called Gluten Free Cooking for Kids and there are definately some recipes in this book for things that are more adult oriented and that leave me wondering if a child would ever really want to eat that. For example, roasted chickpea, tomato, pepper and taleggio pasta, chicken pot roast with cider and apples, and spicy sausage pilaf sound yummy to me but I know a lot of kids who wouldn’t ever touch those things.

Another nice feature of his book is that it tells you how many servings, as well as the preparation and cooking times for each recipe. The majority of the recipes are also dairy free although a few do have cheese or other milk ingrienents.
