Simply…Gluten-Free Quick Meals

By | Jun 11, 2012

My cooking skills go as far as microwaving my lunch, rinsing lettuce for a salad, boiling pasta, and occasionally frying up some chicken cutlets.  Needless to say, I’m not much of a cook.  When I decide that I do want to dabble in cooking, say cooking something on the stove and not in the microwave (gasp!), I usually have my phone and the fire extinguisher nearby – just in case.

I was given a copy of Carol Kicinski’s Simply… Gluten-Free Quick Meals cookbook to check out, and despite my lackluster cooking skills, I feel as though even I could tackle these recipes with minimal risk of burning the house down.  Carol’s cookbook is equipped with more than 100 gluten-free recipes, many of which not only sound delicious, but can also be prepared in less than 15 minutes.

The recipes range from “Ricotta and Tomato Pasta,” “Mexico City Broil” and “Greek Burgers and Fries” to “Honey-Roasted Plums” and “Mini Almond Orange Cakes.”  The recipes sound pretty intimidating, but they actually seem surprisingly easy to prepare.  Even a novice like me can handle cutting sweet potatoes into wedges and adding some seasonings for a quick baked treat.

What especially makes Simply…Gluten-Free Quick Meals stand out are the tips and commentary included in the cookbook.  Carol includes the must-haves for a gluten-free pantry and tricks for how to cook easy meals while making it seem like you’ve slaved in the kitchen for hours (Carol especially recommends these for when the in-laws are in town).
