Review: Gluten-Free Every Day Cookbook

I received this cookbook to review in the mail a week or 2 ago.  Things have been crazy here, so I have just really had a chance to read it this week.  Gluten-Free Every Day is written by Robert M. Landolphi.  Robert is a 1991 graduate of Johnson and Wales University with a bachelor of arts degree in culinary arts & food service management.  His website has a lot more information about him, the book and other fun stuff.

I am very impressed with the recipes in this book.  There are over 100 easy recipes.  I have yet to make any of them, but plan on doing that this coming week.  The ones that really jumped out at me to put on my must make list are:


  • Cheddar & Sour Cream Chicken Strips
  • Smoked Gouda Polenta (remember my dinner out at Aqua Terra?)
  • Chocolate Oatmeal Peanut Sqaures
  • Raspberry Coconut Bars
  • Almond Cookies
  • Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits
  • Carrot Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting


If I had the time today, I would have made the Carrot Cake.  I have all the ingredients on hand, so you never know.  😉  I will make sure to update & share my results once I make these recipes. 

A bonus in this book is an explanation on gluten-free flours, nut meals & starches; how-to toast, caramelize & zest; using prepared gluten-free foods and some brands; links to gluten-free resources.

This book would be a wonderful addition to your cookbook collection.

The Dip Wins!!

Aaron had an appetizer contest yesterday at work.  He asked me to make my Buffalo Chicken Dip.  This dip is always a hit, so I agreed.  🙂  I put the dip together and made some minor changes (used BW3 mild sauce instead of the Red Hot, light cream cheese,  and 2% shredded cheddar).  He brought chips, celery, sour cream, salsa & sriracha sauce to accompany the dip.  🙂  Well, he just received an email that the dip won for “Best Dip”!!  How exciting is that?



The recipe was originally shared with my by my sister, Kelly.
