By | Dec 13, 2010

If you enjoy gluten-free baking odds are you have at least heard of if not tried and loved Jules Gluten Free Flour and baking mixes. If you haven’t heard of Jules gluten-free you might want to check out Jules’ Gluten-Free Flour Review to learn more.

In addition to starting a successful gluten-free flour company, the founder of Jules Gluten Free, Jules E. Dowler Shepard is also a successful author. Her first two books The First Year: Celiac disease and living Gluten-free, a reference guide for the newly diagnosed and Nearly Normal Cooking for Gluten-Free Eating, a very popular cooking book were not only informative but enjoyable and easy to digest (pun intended). Jules has once again published another must have cook book. In her newest cookbook Free for All Cooking Jules takes on the fact that most people on a gf diet suffer from other food allergies and intolerance.

free-for-all.inddFree for All Cooking is filled with 150 easy and delicious gluten-free recipes that are also allergy-friendly. Along with the recipes, this cook book is filled with tips and information that everyone from the newly diagnosed to gluten-free baking pros will find useful. Part one of Free for All Cooking is dedicated to the essentials of gluten-free cooking. Included in this section are a basic guide to ingredients and an extremely helpful substitution guide.

Part two is packed with delicious recipes. Many of these recipes were created by Jules over the years for her loyal newsletter readers and other members of the gluten-free community who not only suffered from celiac disease or gluten intolerance but also had many other diet restrictions. This section includes recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner along with the much desired extras that can be enjoyed between or with many of these meals.

Some (but far from all) of the great recipes you will find inside include:

Breakfast:
Muffins, pancakes, pastries, granola bars and even pop-tarts.
