I have tried four recipes in Deliciously G Free so far, and they have all been outstanding. My kids thought that the Mango Fandango Shake tasted just like ice cream, and I LOVED the Black Forest Shake. Last night I made up a big double batch of the Sweet and Sour Chicken (yummy), and tonight I’m making the Beef and Broccoli. The Egg Muffins were also a big hit.
Although Elisabeth doesn’t specifically annotate this, many of her recipes are both gluten and casein free. If your family was dealing with Autism Spectrum Disorder and cooking for a GF/CF diet, this book would have lots of kid friendly options for you.
I have now also tried the Beef and Broccoli recipe on page 121. It was excellent, but did seem to have a typo. I don’t think the can of black beans was supposed to be there, so I just skipped that part. The pulled pork sandwiches on page 158 were good, and were an easy crock-pot dinner. The chocolate chip cookie recipe on page 215 has also been a hit, but does require a lot of non-standard flours. Luckily we live next to a natural foods co-op, and I have easy access to things like millet flour and Xanthan gum.
A final thing I’d like to point out is that on page 21 Elisabeth talks about mixing up large batches of “power flours” to make baking easier, and specifically mentions pancakes and waffles. But then there aren’t any recipes for pancake and waffle “power flour” mixes. Another typo? She should get a new editor, IMO. I’m changing my ranking on Amazon from 5 to 4.
