Everyone can enjoy these tantalizing recipes, which include everything from baked goods, pasta dishes, appetizers and family meals to mouthwatering desserts. Here is a sampling of the inspired gluten-free recipes, most of which have an egg-free variation:

  • Wild rice latkes
  • Skillet cornbread
  • Bacon and tomato biscuits
  • Coconut shrimp
  • Curried beef with rice noodles
  • Date orange streusel cake
  • Cherry almond biscotti
  • Pear hazelnut tart
  • Shirley's old-fashioned donuts.

In addition to the 150 recipes, there is extensive information about various gluten-free flours, legumes and rices. Also included are tips and techniques for baking lactose-free and egg-free products, making the book helpful for those with other allergies.
