Overview

An award-winning, approachable cookbook intended for home cooks making dinner for their families, gluten-free

Shauna Ahern, the author of Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef—named by the New York Times as one of the best cookbooks of 2010—returns with a new cookbook for busy people who still love to cook. Gluten-Free Girl Every Day, winner of a James Beard Foundation cookbook award, features food you want to cook every day: fresh, satisfying, and filled with great flavors. The inspired ingredient pairings of these recipes come from the collaboration of Ahern and her husband Danny, a professional chef.

Vegetables in season are the key to these healthy, relatively simple recipes, along with whole grains, beans, and a few key spices and homemade sauces. Gluten-Free Girl Every Day also includes practical tips on how to stock a gluten-free pantry, as well as helpful insights into how to bake gluten-free.

  • Features 120 gluten-free recipes for weeknight dinners and desserts
  • Includes suggestions for foods that can be made ahead or frozen to make dinnertime easier
  • Organized around different types of dinners: Breakfast for Dinner, One-Pot Wonders, Stir Fries, and Breaking Down a Chicken, for example

All the recipes in Gluten-Free Girl Every Day are gluten-free, and many are dairy-free or vegetarian as well. However, the only thing that truly matters is that these dishes are delicious.

Library Journal
This item, just published in April, includes tasty combos such as zucchini noodles with spinach pesto and feta and sunflower seeds. (Surprise: the "noodles" are thin raw zucchini strips, creating a base for a cool summer salad.)

I have found some tried and true recipes in the author's first book and was so excited to get this one I pre-ordered months in advance. I've made a few things and have been happy, I'm very happy with the variety of recipes, but I have to admit I'm disappointed in her use of flaxseed, etc. It seems the ingredients just keep getting more complicated (and this from someone who has an average of 2 different flour blends and 8 different flours at all times). I am also a little tired of her to be honest. I loved her in the first book, but her love story and attitude are wearing thin on me. She is getting a little preachy and moving too far from the everyday GF cook that I'm looking for. I'd love to see a GF Ina Garten kind of person. All that aside, I do think this book is worth a look for most on a GF diet if, that is, you're willing to do a lot of work.

I'm an experienced GF cook & baker but still found many new & innovative recipes & resources in this excellent book. The ingredients are pretty commonplace for us, and the very few that're not available locally we get quickly from online sources. I like the recipe layout & organization, too. As in her blog, all recipes use weights for all flours and most other ingredients- excellent for accuracy! My one gripe is that is occasionally set aside for small amounts (ie tsps), when it'd be easier and less cleanup just to zero the scale & add it in the bowl I'm already working into. All in all though, another great cookbook! BTW, I don't find the writing "preachy" at all. Like a good many cookbooks these days their books are as much about their life & place(s) as the food. They don't talk other folks down as much as talking up their choices, and that makes all the difference, IMHO! :)
