Tucson Citizen, 3/28/11

San Francisco Book Review, May 2011

Curled Up With a Good Book, 5/17/11
“Opens up a whole new world for people with this particular diet restriction and does so with a writing style that is both assured and accessible.

MidwestBook Review, May 2011

“Hunn is clever and optimistic. As you flip through the pages, it’s hard to avoid not feeling better about your gluten-free life. Plus, the recipes will inspire you to go into the kitchen with renewed energy and hope for the future. It’s well worth spending money to purchase Gluten-Free on a Shoestring. It will pay dividends in the future.”

    Good recipes & nice organization

    Good recipes with simple ingredients presented in a friendly writing style. A good buy, but the cookbooks-on-nook experiment was not a successful one. I would love to have this - and any other cookbooks I want in future - on paper only; the electronic version (for me, anyway) is not practical in the kitchen.

    Yummy

    I used a large ice cream scoop, 14 nicely sized biscuits that were a perfect golden brown @12 minutes.
