Gluten-Free Bread: More Than 100 Artisan Loaves for a Healthier Life by Ellen Brown Review

My mother-in-law is gluten-free.

She discovered she had celiac disease about a year ago. This means she had to give up a lot of foods that she loved.

I know she'd enjoy the book Gluten-Free Bread: More Than 100 Artisan Loaves For A Healthier Life by Ellen Brown. Why? Well, because she loves bread. When we'd go to Texas Roadhouse she'd enjoy the rolls that were served. She'd reach for the breadsticks at Olive Garden. I imagine it's extremely difficult not to be able to have those.

However, the book has many delicious recipes that she can make that are gluten-free! Also, I loved the colorful pictures that accompanied most recipes.

I liked how the book explained what things were and how they worked. For instance, it went into detail about yeast. I'm interested because I'm not exactly sure what goes into making bread. I tend to buy mine already made.

I LOVE baguettes so I was pleased to find a recipe for it:

I also am a gigantic fan of bagels.

There were so many scrumptious recipes that made me drool. I love bread. And yes, I do plan on making some of this bread when my mother-in-law comes to visit.

The author, Ellen Brown, is the author of 35 cookbooks so I know she knows her stuff! If you want a copy of the book, you can purchase it from here.

So if you have someone who is gluten-free in your life, or YOU are gluten-free, be sure to check out Gluten-Free Bread. Don't deny yourself the pleasure of biting into a warm loaf.

**I received a copy of the book to review in exchange for my honest opinion*


  1. It is great that more and more chefs are now creating gluten free recipes ... I gave up gluten for about 6 months and it sucked.

  2. Yum! I love baking and a whole book just on baking bread (gf or not) would make me quite happy! Thank you for stopping by my blog!

  3. Sounds yummy! Will definitely check it out! :)-Ashley

  4. My husband's boss is gluten-free so we do keep a supply of recipes on hand so that he doesn't feel left out since my husband is always baking for the office!

  5. I have celiac too so GF cookbooks are a must for me. I admit, I stay away from making time consuming for a crappy outcome. But I really should try it again since so much has changed since I was diagnosed 9 years ago.

    In other cookbook news...if your MIL doesn't already have Roben Ryberg's cookbook, You Won't Believe It's Gluten Free you need to get it for her STAT! I use it ALL THE TIME and all the recipes are simple and easy. My favorite recipes are for the chicken nuggets and onion rings...but I'm a sucker for fried food. She has a lot of amazing recipes that don't involve deep frying in saturated fat. :-)
