I know it’s been awhile since I’ve talked about the ebook! I’ve been trying to get through these recipes like a champ and managed to completely forget to post about it. I know you’ve all been on the edge of your seats waiting for my update 😉
I am now officially 26 out of 40 recipes done! Thank you all for your suggestions on what the 40th recipe should be. Looks like you guys like breakfast grains so I added in another. Here’s a hint: it stained my fingers pink! Here’s another hint: I give behind-the-scenes info on the cookbook recipes on my Facebook page…
So I ran into a dilemma about halfway through the recipes when I realized I was spending my monthly food budget on gluten-free flour blends. All of the recipes in the cookbook are gluten-free and I am uber picky about which blends I use. One of my pet peeves is when people ask if I am “used to the taste of gluten-free foods”. My friends, if done well it should not taste different!!!! It is entirely possible to trick people into eating gluten-free food without them noticing, because I do it every.single.day.
The problem is that the good gluten-free flour blends are pricey. Actually, that’s a lie. Bob’s Red Mill is both pricey and horrific tasting. I think I just killed any chance of working with them…whoops. So after I spent a whopping $60 on gluten-free flour, I knew it was time I develop my own.
I got to work, and by work I mean my kitchen looked like a snowstorm had hit it, but finally success! So far I’ve made 3 recipes with it (2 of them I had previously made with a store-bought blend) and it’s worked like a charm. So now if your recipes from the cookbook turn out gross, I can blame it on you and not the shitty flour #sorrynotsorry. But for real, the flour tastes amazing (no “gluteny” taste) and every recipe has or will be tested with it. SHABANG. Not to worry non gluten-free folks, regular whole wheat flour can always be substituted!
Unfortunately I’m gonna make you wait for the cookbook for the blend recipe…unless you bribe me with wine.
I’ve also been keeping a secret from you. I have a release date! I hope you all love Summer because June 21st aka the first day of summer is my official release date. I intend to be brunching like it’s my job all summer long…oh wait, it kind of is 😉 I hope you’re as excited as I am!
Are you gluten-free? Do you buy your gluten-free flour blends or make your own?
