Cookbook I Want To Get

Instead of sugar plums dancing in my head, I'm dreaming of delights from this cookbook: Silvana's Gluten-free and Dairy-free Kitchen:Timeless Favorites Transformed. She is founding editor of Every Day for Rachel Ray, and is the creator of one of my favorite cookbooks: Cooking for Isaiah.  It's not everyday you find a cookbook that is gluten-free, dairy free, and has both baking and meal recipes included. Her ideas are fun, interesting, and truly delightful.  Here is what a reviewer on Amazon had to say about it.

By G. Shields 

I've been gluten free for about 9 years now, and I can't tell you how many recipes and flour combinations I have tried - mostly without success, at least in the bread department. I wasn't sure about buying another gluten free cookbook, but decided to try it out anyway. I wanted to make the pizza first since bread recipes are the hardest (in my humble opinion) to re-create gluten free. The pizza was delicious and has been the first gluten free bread that I have tried that actually emulates its wheat counterparts. Buy the book! I'm sure you won't be disappointed. There is a wide variety of recipes: pizza, doughnuts, risotto, pumpkin dumplings, coffee cake, etc.
This is what Amazon says about it: "The founding editor of Every Day with Rachael Ray reinvents America's favorite dishes for a gluten- and dairy-free world — no compromises to flavor or texture accepted.
“The fact that everything she makes is gluten-free is astonishing.” —Food & Wine
When doctors diagnosed Silvana Nardone’s son with intolerances to gluten and dairy, she embarked on a quest to develop dishes for the toughest critics of all: her kids. To do so, she drew on her experience as a professional baker and her work in magazine test kitchens. She deciphered labels and tested obsessively. The result: dishes that taste exactly like their supermarket, bakery, and take-out counterparts, from Cinnamon-Swirl Pancakes to Crispy Chicken Taquitos to Baked Ham-and-Cheese Manicotti. Every mom on the block will want the recipes for her high-rising, light sandwich loaf, deep-dish pizza, and chocolate-chip cookie dough ice cream sandwiches.
Silvana shares every last secret she has learned over the years from her formulations of gluten-free all-purpose flour; pancake, waffle, and biscuit mix; homemade and rich-tasting nondairy substitutes for milk, yogurt, and ricotta; and other essentials that are key to making the best food possible."
