Cookbook Review: Gluten-Free on a Shoestring, Quick and Easy by Nicole Hunn

I just received a copy of Nicole Hunn's new cookbook, Gluten-Free on a Shoestring, Quick and Easy 100 Recipes for the Food You Love--Fast! I loved Nicole's first cookbook simply titled Gluten-Free on a Shoestring; her popover recipe rocks!  In her new book there is a recipe for chocolate popovers, which are out of this world... thanks Nicole!  Nicole's new cookbook also has a great recipe for gluten free mini chocolate donuts which I am anxious to try... I even bought my daughters a mini donut machine for Christmas so we can make Nicole's recipe (shhh don't tell!).

About the book...

"People who follow a gluten-free diet—avoiding all foods with even a trace of wheat, barley, and rye in their ingredients—don’t always have the quick and cheap food options that their friends do…until now. Gluten-free guru Nicole Hunn is back with 100 new quick-prep and make-ahead recipes for dinners, yeast-free breads, baked goods, snacks, breakfasts, and more. These unique timesaving recipes take advantage of readily available gluten-free ingredients, low-cost packaged goods, and kitchen shortcuts. Created with the busy family in mind, Hunn shares her secrets to getting a scrumptious meal on the table in fewer than thirty minutes—without breaking the bank. Recipes include Super-Quick Cinnamon Rolls, Yeast-Free English Muffins, Easy Veggie Burgers, Weeknight Chicken Soup, Cheesecake Cookies, Make-Your-Own Yellow Cake Mix, and more."

Saffron Road Introduces Gluten Free Crunchy Chickpeas!

Have you tried the new Crunchy Chickpeas snacks from Saffron Road?  They are a healthy gluten free alternative to fried, fat-laden snacks, offering 6 grams of protein and only 4 grams of fat per serving.  These addicting little morsels come in 3 yummy flavors to suit every palette: Falafel (my personal favorite), Bombay Spice and Wasabi.

Saffron Road's Crunchy Chickpeas are made with organic chickpeas that are certified Non-GMO.  They are perfect for snacking at home or on the go.  Try putting out bowls of all three flavors at your holiday gatherings... they are sure to stir up some "spicy" conversation.

You can find Crunchy Chickpeas at your local Whole Foods Market.
