Cookbook Giveaway & Review: Free for All Cooking by Jules E. Dowler Shepard PLUS Bonus Recipe


In her new Cookbook Free for All Cooking 150 Easy Gluten-Free, Allergy-Friendly Recipes the Whole Family Can Enjoy, author Jules E. Dowler Shepard shares tasty recipes for the many people following a gluten-free diet (and also have other food sensitivities to deal with).  For example, my daughter cannot have gluten or dairy, so these recipes are perfect for my family.

Jules' goal is to provide her readers with delicious recipes that will "satisfy everyone’s needs without making three different dinners."  I agree with that!  It just isn't feasible for busy people like you and I to be short-order cooks at home.  Free for All Cooking can help solve this frustrating dilemma.  

The recipes in Free for All Cooking are not only gluten free, but can also be made free of many major allergen ingredients such as dairy, nuts, soy, eggs (and more) to fit your personal dietary needs. 

Jules’has also included a handy comprehensive ingredient guide in this book, which allows you to substitute with ease as you prepare:
- Crusty French Baguette
- Easy Homemade Ravioli
- Southern Biscuits
- Crab Cakes or Veggie "Crab" Cakes
- Authentic Pizza
- Granola Bars
- Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Dairy-Free Cheesecake

Sounds yummy, don't you think?  I can't wait to try these recipes!

Banana Blueberry Muffins

From Free for All Cooking
by Jules E. Dowler Shepard
published by Da Capo Lifelong

Makes approximately 16 Muffins

½ cup butter or nondairy alternative
½ cup granulated cane sugar
2 large eggs or egg substitute of choice (like Ener-G Egg Replacer or Egg Substitute #1, 2, 6, or 7, pages 15-16)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract, gluten-free
½ cup sour cream (dairy or nondairy) or plain coconut yogurt
1 cup mashed ripe banana (approximately 2 bananas)
1 ½ cups Jules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour (pages 6,8)
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder, gluten-free
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 tablespoons flaxseed meal (optional, but recommended)
1 ½ cups fresh or frozen blueberries

Preheat the oven to 350°F (static) or 325°F (convection).

Oil or line muffin cups and set aside (makes approximately 16 muffins).

Cream the butter and sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat well.

Mix in the sour cream and banana until well blended.

In a separate bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients then add gradually into the wet mixture until thoroughly mixed. Lastly, gently stir in the blueberries.
