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.

Good tasting and easy to use recipes. This is a great book for those new to the GF diet and for those old timers looking for quick and easy recipes.

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