I’m very excited to help announce a new cookbook available!
Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef: A Love Story with 100 Tempting Recipes is a brand spanking new book out the chronicles, not only some pretty amazing gluten free recipes, but also the beautiful relationship Shauna (the Gluten-Free Girl) shares with her husband, Danny (the Chef). I’ve really enjoyed reading Shauna’s first book, as well as their blog for several years. I jumped at the opportunity to preview a couple of the recipes from the book and tell you about them!
Yesterday for lunch I made Seared Shrimp with Garlic-Almond Sauce. This was a delicious blend of roasted almonds, fresh garlic, and olive oil, and I happily dipped my shrimp into the sauce again and again while watching the Packers trounce those Buffalo Bills!
For dessert we sampled Chocolate-Peanut Butter Brownies. These are a flavorful, rich, cake-like brownie, with peanut butter marbled into the batter. I also served these for dessert for some friends, and they didn’t suspect they were gluten-free in the least. That is really how I like to test gluten free recipes and dessert. I don’t want my gluten-intolerant friends and relatives to have to “settle” for a sub-par sweet. If people with and without celiac disease can enjoy a treat, then it gets two thumbs up in my book!
Thank you, Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef for sharing these recipes!
