|Great Gluten-Free Vegan Eats by Allyson Kramer - published by Fair Winds Press. Don't miss the giveaway near the end of this review!|
|Allyson's double chocolate muffins have been affectionately renamed chocolate muffcakes around these parts. Not quite a muffin, not quite a cupcake. Rich like a brownie and super good. Even with white chocolate chips instead of regular ones.|
|Cherry Vanilla Bean Pancakes made over with blackberries, they're also really great with fresh peaches.|
|I stuffed these ravioli with vegan buffalo mozzarella mixed with pesto. The pasta was delicate enough to serve with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, salt and freshly ground pepper on top.|
❤ This book contains lots of the recipes I crave and seek from a xgfx book including: pancakes, muffins, biscuits 'n' gravy, cake, cupcakes, crackers, cookies, bread, pizza dough, pie crust, home-made pasta, blintzes, scones, donuts, sticky rolls and hand-pies.
❤ Each recipe tells you how much of each flour and starch you need. No commercial mixes are called for anywhere in the book and Allyson doesn't make her readers mix up a flour/starch combo to use (and thus store) for the cookbook.
❤ The book design is gorgeous, and each recipe includes a full color photo taken by the author.
❤ I love chocolate dessert recipes that include teff flour, and Allyson incorporates this combo in her double chocolate muff[cake]ins.
❤ These recipes yield delicious results in both flavor, texture and visual appeal-- enough to not only satisfy gluten-eaters, but to actually yield compliments. This is awesome news at my house, because I'm not about to make two versions of stuff per meal and Dazee can be really particular about what he eats.
❤ Honestly, I have a gigantic bookcase filled with titles I never cook from, so when I find a cookbook that becomes a "go-to" for even one or two dishes, I am thrilled with the acquisition. This book has already given me a few, and I've only just begun working my way through it.
To win your own copy of this book, simply post a comment by midnight Pacific time on Monday, September 24th 2012 (please make sure to leave some sort of way I can get in touch with you), and I'll draw a random winner.
