I was thrilled when Chandice Probst of Gluten-Free Frenzy and Gluten-Free Calendar asked if I wanted an advanced copy of her new cookbook, Gluten-Free on a Budget and to be part of her blog tour. Chandice is one of those gluten-free people I feel like I have known forever even though I only met her twice in person. (Um, Chandice, how is this possible?!) Her positive attitude and her tireless efforts within the gluten-free community make her one of the gluten-free superstars in my book. Add on top of her busy gluten-free schedule, three kids and a move to Utah and I swear this woman doesn't sleep!
Gluten-Free on a Budget is a great resource for a hungry family. Chandice and her mom Tana Besendorfer put together a book full of family, budget-friendly recipes that are all 100% gluten-free. Tana's "Take it up a Notch" tips give some great ideas of how to make the most of your recipe and go easy on your wallet. The recipes range from easy, my style of cooking, like the Bacon Spinach Tomato Frittata on page 35 and the Peanut Butter Delights on page 195 to the more complex baking recipes like the Banana Black-Bottom Pie on page 171.
Chandice and Tana are both gluten-free so this cookbook not only comes from the heart but also comes from the experience of living with Celiac Disease. It is great to see a dynamic duo like these two put together this labor of love. You can tell these are all recipes they enjoy in their own homes that they want to share with the gluten-free community. I highly recommend Gluten-Free on a Budget for your gluten-free kitchen.
I was very flattered when Chandice asked me to give a quote for her new book. I love helping out a gluten-free friend but I also not-so-secretly love seeing my name in print. Check it out!
