    Gluten-Free Cooking

    I have Fibromyalgia and this book was VERY helpful.

    I had a flare-up for two (2) days and I contacted my massage therapist and she told me to stop eating Gluten. That was a VERY helpful tool.

    I now do NOT eat anything with gluten and I am feeling much better. This book has helped me tremendously.

    I also received as a gift the book "Fibromyalgia for Dummies" and that also is very informative.

    Good Cookbook to Have

    Bought this book almost 2 years ago when I went Gluten Free. It's got a lot of information on being gluten free. Have tried many of the recipes, and they are delicious.

    Gluten Free Living for Dummies

    This book was very informative about living gluten-free and answered alot of questions about how to incorporate gluten-free living into your lifestyle. The only thing that irked me is that she keeps referring to her other book that she wants you to buy. It seems that she does this in practically every chapter. That is my only complaint.

    AWFUL!!!

    I had high hopes for a book like this. The information was helpful, however, the recipes were TERRIBLE!!! I made the caramel cake and my husband said it tasted like I added soap to the dish. I do know how to cook and after about 10 recipes I tried, I tossed the book quickly. If you want it for the information than great just don't try the recipes!!!

    What everyone should know!

    I really gained a lot of useful information & what I am trying now is helping my 50 year digestive problems. Danna Korn has a very enjoyable, easy to read writing style. I have spread the word about being gluten-free & think through this book & recent experience this is something that everyone should apply to their eating habits. Many grocery stores are now carrying gluten-free products, so that it is not a problem cooking gluten-free.
