Introducing: The Everything Gluten-Free College Cookbook! Coming July 2013

Over the past year I've been working very hard on a series of gluten-free cookbooks for the "Everything" series published by Adams Media. (Hence the reason the poor blog hasn't been updated as often as I'd like for it to be!)

And my latest installment is coming out next month on July 18, 2013. This new book is entitled, "The Everything Gluten-Free College Cookbook." This book has been especially designed for gluten-free college kids, but also those new to cooking gluten-free, and for busy folks everywhere.

The book specifically shares SUPER EASY recipes and tips to teach college kids how to cook fast, easy, and healthy meals right in their dorm room or apartment.

Some great features of this book include: 
  • A whole chapter explaining what being gluten-free means, how to buy and store gluten-free foods in your college dorm room or your first apartment. How to ask about gluten-free options on your college campus, how to teach your friends about WHY you are gluten-free, etc... 
  • Over 300 EASY AND DELICIOUS gluten-free recipes that ANYONE can make, especially beginner cooks!
  • An entire chapter on meals you can make in your microwave!
  • Recipes for easy breakfasts, lunches, parties, study snacks, and special chapters on fast and quick main dishes and gluten-free pasta meals.
  • An entire chapter on gluten-free vegetarian and vegan recipes!
  • Tons of NATURALLY gluten-free recipes, which means you don't have to buy special gluten-free flours or baking ingredients (unless of course you want too for the baked goods!) 
  • For those who want to learn to bake, many EASY gluten-free baked goods such as muffins, cupcakes, cookies, etc... 
  • Dairy-free substitutes are listed throughout the book for those with dairy or casein sensitivities. 

A handful of awesome gluten-free recipes to try from this book include: 
  • Banana Nut Pancakes
  • Very Veggie Omelets
  • Baked Pumpkin Crunch Oatmeal
  • Classic BLT's
  • Mini Pizzas in a Flash
  • Tuna Salad with a Kick
  • Buffalo Wings
  • Never-Enough-Nachos
  • Microwave Chicken Divan
  • Easy "Tandoori" Chicken
  • Mexican Lasagna
  • Frittata with Asparagus and Two Cheeses
  • Classic Italian Risotto
  • Cheesiest Macaroni and Cheese
  • Stovetop Oatmeal Fudge Cookies
  • Basic Rice Krispies Squares
  • Speedy Mocha "Mousse" Pudding
  • and many, many more!

If you're not a college student, this book can still help you learn to make super fast and easy meals at home. It's perfect for busy moms, commuters, anyone working full time who needs quick and healthy gluten-free meals on-the-go, etc... 

This book is on-sale now for pre-order through:
And will be available on July 18, 2013 at your favorite local bookstore.

If I read the list of recipes to her, I bet she would choose the Mexican Lasagna for her first meal. My addy is: tea 4 mars at gmail dot com. NO spaces. Thank you!

  6. It would be so awesome to win a copy of your book! I have pre-ordered one for me, and I would love to have another to give as a gift to one of my gf friends.

  10. I can't wait to check this out! Truly looks easy to follow and fun to try out. I have been using your recipes for the last 5 years while eating an allergy free diet turned lifestyle. Your recipes are made here weekly, and are my kids' favorites! Thanks for all your hard work for all these years. Truly....blessed!


  11. I would love this for my grandmother who lives alone and would benefit from simple recipes for one or 2. Mypursedoestricks@gmail.com

  12. I would love to try Stovetop Oatmeal Fudge Cookies! My daughter (celiac, crohn's) heads to college this fall and would find this cookbook very helpful.

  17. I have been gluten free for a few years now, but I still look for recipes that are simple and fast. I've got a 2 year old and a 4 year old and I don't have a lot of time to cook! This cookbook would be wonderful!

  18. What a great idea for a book & I can't wait to get a free copy, finger crossed :) I am a wife, mom of 4 boys, Tupperware Indp Consultant, Gluten Free for a yr, and a college student!! I am still learning & really wanting to try more recipes that aren't a mile long!! Thanks so much!!

  19. Congratulations on your new book! If it is anything like your wonderful crockpot cookbook I was fortunate enough to win I know it will be awesome. (Don't enter me that would just be too greedy). I will order this one for my son who starts college in August! I know his first recipe would be Never-Enough-Nachos - which could have been named just for Joe. =D

  20. Congratulations on the publication of your new cookbook! I would love to be entered in the drawing to win a copy of it. I'm a fairly new GF gal who is single and living alone and would greatly benefit from these college-student-friendly recipes! Being post-college and student-loan-laden, winning this would be lovely (although I'll likely buy it even if I don't). Thanks again and congrats!

  21. Since I'm turning 65 on Sunday, the perfect gift would be your book so that this is the last year I don't get a cake........no one else bakes gluten free but me - so I could give this to my daughter and she could bake me a cake!

  22. Would love to win a copy of your new book. Was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 10 years ago and I'm always looking for new recipes. I love nachos so the Never-Enough-Nachos would be great to try.

  23. I would love to win your new book...I've been eating gluten free for a few yrs and one can never get enough recipes

  24. Congratulations on your new cookbook! I would love to win this book as I am going off to my first year of university in September. I am deadly (anaphylactic) allergic to gluten which makes it very difficult for me to eat socially, and I'm worried about how it will affect me in university. Having this book would give me great recipes I could bring to parties and so on so that I'm not left out of these social events. I also LOVE baking so I would definitely enjoy having another cookbook full of recipes to try out. Thanks!

  33. I have celiac disease and my daughter will be going off to college in two years. She has been avoiding gluten with me, because she saw how sick I was for so long before finally being diagnosed.
