7 great gluten-free cookbooks from 2012
By Jane Barthelemy (Da Capo Lifelong, 2012)
Unless you've been living in a cave (ha), you know that the Paleo hunter-gatherer diet is gaining steam (or maybe fire). It eschews grains, dairy, and sugar—processed foods, in other words—and emphasizes fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, roots, and wild meats. Given the sugar ban, desserts tend to be the diet's sticky wicket. This utilitarian book offers 125 allergen-free (no gluten, dairy, corn, peanuts, or soy), low-carb, diabetic friendly desserts that use only unprocessed sweeteners.
Mouthwatering titles: Coconut Cream Pie; Luscious Lemon Layer Cake.
