The How Can It Be Gluten Free Cookbook: Revolutionary Techniques. Groundbreaking Recipes. by America's Test Kitchen
The How Can It Be Gluten Free Cookbook: Revolutionary Techniques. Groundbreaking Recipes.

nicole d, August 23, 2014

America's Test Kitchen cookbooks never fail to impress me. Some of the recipes in this book, like waffles and crepes, I actually like better than my traditional wheat-based ones. Lots of ideas for savory foods, and lots baking recipes. They developed a recipe for their own gluten-free flour blend, so you don't have to worry about relying on a particular brand.

Great for art lovers, science lovers, animal lovers, book lovers, history lovers, and everyone else. A wide variety of really interesting essays that aren't too long on the history of natural sciences with a great selection of illustrations. This boxed set also comes with a nice set of ready-to-frame prints which I love too.

A fun fairy tale adventure with some familiar characters told with a modern, feminist bent. A really enjoyable story (continued in vol. 2) and beautiful illustrations. Just as much fun for adults as kids.

A fabulous re-imagining and retelling of the classic Pride and Prejudice. Rather than focus on the story and characters we already know and love, this novel focuses on the servants who are only briefly mentioned in P&P. It's kind of like the Upstairs/Downstairs or Downton Abbey take on Pride and Prejudice. The characters are complex, the story compelling and details of events of the times, like the Napoleonic Wars and the slave trade, are really interesting.

Slow Cooker Revolution, Volume 2: The Eas-Prep Edition by Americas Test Kitchen

Another great cookbook from America's Test Kitchen. They had great recipes in their first volume of slow cooker recipes, but those recipes didn't seem to save me time very often. In this book the recipes really are super easy--just dump the ingredients in the crock pot and a few hours later you have a fabulous meal. I cook out of this book at least once a week and it hasn't let me down yet.
