A Treasure Indeed

I'm not a fan of cookbooks. I have a couple that were my grandmother's and I'll keep them solely for the reason that they were hers. Otherwise, I just don't get the cookbook fascination. I LOVE allrecipes.com. The ability to read reviews before I attempt a dish is indispensable to me. All of this probably boils down to the fact that I really don't like to cook and bake; I do it because I feel it's what's best for my family. Some people may not mind making the same dish 10 times until they perfect it. Me? No way. I want to get it right the first time.

But then I fell in love with a cookbook. My mother-in-law let me borrow one of hers and I read it cover-to-cover and gave it back reluctantly. Then, for the first time in 13 years, I went online and spent money on a cookbook. And I've used it almost every day since then.

What is this miraculous book that has such a hold on me?

I'll be posting my experience with the recipes in this book; but I won't post the recipes here. If you are interested, please consider purchasing this book. Amazon has it on sale right now - it's worth every penny!


  1. My typical question when it comes to new cookbooks (I, unlike you, have a cookbook addiction!) that I can't flip through before purchase:

    Is it worth it for a celiac, or is it a bunch of recipes that are whole wheat, oats, barley, etc.?

    My all time favorite cookbook (pre-diagnosis, at least, but I can sub enough) is the big red Betty Crocker cookbook. But I also love church cookbooks. It's one of my "wouldn't it be fun to..." goals to collect one from an LCMS congregation in each of the 50 states =)

  2. It does have ONE gluten-free recipe. :)

    It has chapters on entrees, veggies, soups, and smoothies, that are pretty much gluten-free, but there are three chapters on bread, cookies, and desserts that all call for wheat or oats.
