The How Can It Be Gluten Free Cookbook: Revolutionary Techniques, Groundbreaking Recipes by America’s Test Kitchen. What I liked the most about this cookbook is its approach to gluten-free cooking. Instead of just providing recipes, America’s Test Kitchen explains what they tried that didn’t work as they developed each recipe. Maybe that doesn’t sound like a big deal, but gluten-free cooking (especially baking) requires a completely different sort of cooking chemistry than what most people are familiar with. Because they explained what the challenges of each recipes were, what they tried, why they tried it, and how successful the results were, I learned more about gluten-free cooking from this cookbook than I’d learned in my previous 18 years of being gluten-free. While the baking recipes use a flour blend developed by America’s Test Kitchen (which can be made in bulk for less than buying flour blends), each recipe also includes adaptations for using two different commercially available flour blends.
Fic: Why Fanfiction Is Taking Over the World by Anne Jamison. I’ve officially given up on this one – I just haven’t been in the mood to read academic writing. Might never be in the mood to do that, actually. πŸ™‚

“…zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…” -Chaos

“…zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…” -Mayhem

I have no idea where May’s head is in this picture. That’s her front paw to the right of Chaos’ nose, but other than that… o.O

  1. Looks like Chaos pinned Mayhem!
    Thanks for the review on ATK book. I avoid baking anything GF, but it would be interesting to read what didn’t work and what they ended up using that did work.

  2. There appears to be a tail to the left of Chaos’ nose, so I’m guessing that is actually a back paw and May’s head is off camera to the left πŸ˜€ .

  3. Thank you for the good review on the ATK cookbook. I don’t need it, but I have a fair number of gluten free friends here and it would be nice to be able to recommend something to them.

  4. Ugh, that Adobe article gives me the willies. I hate the Digital Reader format anyway, but to have a breach like that…ick.

    But on the bright side, that Deadspin article is the first pro media analysis of the San Jose Sharks’ upcoming season that *doesn’t* make me want to punch someone, so there’s that!

  5. I bought that Test Kitchen book for my sister a few months ago and she said it’s great, too. There was a review of the new book about Derek Boogard in the NYTimes book review last week. Made me not want to watch hockey.

  6. Have you tried the recipes on the GF cookbook? I’m new to GF diet and what I’ve bought at the stores so far tastes like crap and let’s not even talk about the bread! I could kill someone with it! Only way to eat it is by toasting it. I’ve made a couple of things with corn flour and it’s BLAH! No matter how much I add to the mix everything tastes just the same….like corn! I’m to the point I’m losing weight from not eating πŸ™
