    Don't get excited, the pictures have nothing to do with the recipes

    Within minutes of browsing this cookbook I found myself with questions. The two biggest ones- Did anyone bother to proofread this at all? and Why are the pictures next to each recipe obviously NOT real pictures of the completed recipe? For example, the yummy looking chicken nuggets pictured obviously have gluten in them. And a quick google search for "chicken nuggets and fries" reveals that this picture is simply a stock picture available for purchase.

    Almost every recipe in this cookbook has glaring errors. The brownie recipe does not list any flour, but instructions say "combine flour, cocoa, baking powder" etc. Several recipes say things like "bake for 30 minutes" but give no temp in the instructions. The turkey turnovers say to cut dough into "2 inch squares" but later you are supposed to put filling on those squares, fold over, and crimp edges. Let me be the first to tell you, that isn't going to happen with a 2 inch square. After you suffer through that frustration you are supposed to bake your itty bitty turnovers for 20-30 minutes at an unspecified temperature. All this is assuming that you even managed to turn out a gluten-free dough using only one flour (buckwheat) and kneading it for 5 minutes (no, I didn't try it, but I can tell you what will happen if you do). Most recipes that call for a sweetener gives you two options- equal amounts of either cane sugar or agave nectar. Agave nectar is a liquid, and cane sugar a dry ingredient. They are NOT interchangeable in baking without adjustments of other dry or wet ingredients. Sheesh!

    I did try the cocoa cookies as all the ingredients appeared to be listed and an oven temp was given. Even though the instructions don't say to ever add the sugar, I took a guess and added that to the dry ingredients. They were not inedible, but not great either. And they look quite different from the picture given.

    Even with the bad instructions, I am most angered by the misleading pictures. Some of them look quite good and I'd like to know how to make them, but when a soup shows celery and rice in it, but neither appears on the ingredient list, I have to question why the picture is even there in the first place.

    My son was terribly excited by the big cupcake on the cover, but that's just another picture downloaded from istockphotos.com.

    This cookbook is almost impossible to use, and the pictures are at best a let-down and at worst a fraud. Save your money!

    Great Idea Guide for Dairy & Gluten-Free Living

    As another reviewer stated, there are a lot of missing "details" in several recipes. If you bake or cook a lot, then you shouldn't have a problem "winging it" on those recipes. I'd consider this cookbook more of a guide than an instruction manual if that makes sense. It really helped me open my mind to possibilities of foods that are gluten and dairy-free - foods that I had resigned myself to never eating again. The red bean chili is delicious and so is the quinoa chicken cassarole...the corn bread is yummy, but needs more sweetener...overall a great jumping off point to coming up with your own menu ideas.
