Synopsis

From the author of The G-Free Diet and the co-host of ABC’s The View comes a vital book about scrumptiously satisfying gluten-free food—with easy-to-follow recipes, healthy tips, and full-color photographs throughout—for families managing celiac disease as well as anyone who is concerned about their intake of wheat and other grains.

Growing up in a family where everyone came together at the dinner table, Elizabeth Hasselbeck savored the signature meatball, lasagna, and ziti dishes of her grandmother and great-grandmother, and the pierogies of her father’s heritage. But a decade ago, the Emmy Award–winning co-host of The View, New York Times bestselling author, and mother of three was diagnosed with celiac disease, and the family recipes she grew up with suddenly became strictly off-limits. Or so she thought.
 
Getting rid of gluten, however, doesn’t have to mean giving up taste. Deliciously G-Free combines Hasselbeck’s knowledge for healthy living and passion for tasty food to bring you 100 delectable, easy-to-make, and family-friendly gluten-free recipes. By adding a variety of other ingredients to the fridge and pantry, she’s perfected scrumptious zero-gluten versions of old standards and new creations that would make her relatives proud, including
 
• Breakfasts to Remember: Fried Egg Sandwich with Chipotle Mayo, Coconut Raspberry Muffins, French Toast with Caramel Rum Bananas, Blueberry Waffles, and Frittata
• All-Star Appetizers: Pork Pot Stickers, Stuffed Mushrooms, Smoked Salmon on Corn Fritters, Crab Cakes with Homemade Tartar Sauce, and Hot Artichoke Dip
• Mouthwatering Main Meals: Excellent Enchiladas with Quinoa Cornbread, Mac and Cheese, Lasagna, Veggie Pad Thai, Chimichurri Flank Steak and Grilled Asparagus, and Buttermilk Chicken
• Deliciously Irresistible Desserts:  Chocolate Devil’s Food Cupcakes, Blueberry-Raspberry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Tiramisu, Yellow Birthday Cake, and Double Chocolate Brownies
 
Loaded with gorgeous color photos, Deliciously G-Free also satisfies your taste buds with ideas for gourmet entertaining, kid-friendly concoctions, cool-weather comfort foods, and “Get Fit” g-free recipes. Plus, Hasselbeck opens up about her own gluten-free journey—from getting diagnosed to getting her family on board—and shares tips for how to stock your kitchen, prevent cross-contamination, and whip up g-free flour mixes that literally take the cake.
 
Looking great and feeling good from the inside out is just one Deliciously G-Free meal away!
 
Praise for Deliciously G-Free
 
“Fried chicken, brownies, sliders, even spaghetti and meatballs and mile-high lasagna all gluten-free? My only complaint about Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s Deliciously G-Free is that I didn’t write it myself. She problem-solves in the tastiest of ways with the most requested recipes of our time—gluten-free. Nicely done, blondie!”—Rachael Ray
 
Deliciously G-Free gives you world-class advice on gluten from a world expert on her body. Elisabeth Hasselbeck offers elegant, passionate, and tasty advice everyone will adore.”—Mehmet Oz, M.D.
 
Deliciously G-Free eschews fancy, restaurant-level recipes and acknowledges instead the need for straightforward food for busy people, lovingly prepared.”—The Oregonian
