Gluten Free Recipe Sources

I read a lot of books, cookbooks, and websites. I love to read and learn tips and ideas for cooking. I realized though that most of the websites and cookbooks that I have been reading are regular food sites.

Which are all are great. I get a lot of ideas from reading those things. However, I am finding that more and more I also want to read gluten free recipes.

I have purchased a few gluten free cookbooks, and I have found quite a few tips and recipes by reading them.

But to be honest, several of them have been a waste of money. After trying a few of the recipes in some of the gluten free cookbooks, I have wondered if they were even tested. In general I have many more mistakes, errors, and just plain bad recipes using gluten free cookbooks.

As far as websites go, I have found several that I read regularly. The Gluten Free Homemaker, The Celiac TeenShirley at Gluten Free Easily, and my sister have all been very helpful. I have learned a lot of information from all of them, but I looking for more gluten free websites to add to my list of favorites.

So, I would love to hear what your favorite gluten free cookbooks or websites are. I am also curious to know if you use gluten free sources or do you find yourself mainly adapting regular recipes?

    Thanks for this post. My niece is a celiac, so these are great resources.

  2. I like to adapt regular recipes and make them gluten free, I haven’t been able to part with my cookbook collection nor my cooking magazines. However, yeast breads and complicated baked goods seem to be less frustrating if I just go to a reliable gluten free source.

    I know you have some readers in the Pacific Northwest so they might like the gluten free blog http://www.glutenfreeportland.org/ They post product and restaurant reviews, cooking class information, recipes, etc. A lot of their posts are only relevant if you live in the Portland area, put their product reviews are very thorough.

  3. I’m glad I’ve been of some help. :) When I first went gluten-free, Bette Hagman’s cookbooks were among the few out there. Her recipes weren’t perfect, but she was a life saver for me. I have a couple of Carol Fenster’s cookbooks and like her recipes. I almost always tweak recipes a little. Part of it is due to different tastes and preferences, and part of it might be due to different climates and altitude.

  4. I’m fairly new to the gluten free life-style, and I’ve enjoyed searching for recipes and websites. Here are some that I really enjoy:
    http://www.simplysugarandglutenfree.com (there are flour blend recipes here)
    http://www.elanaspantry.com
    http://www.heavenlyhomemakers.com (not all gluten free, but she has a gf section! many of her recipes can easily be made gf. This is my personal favorite site)
    There is SO much out there! It can be overwhelming, but you’ll find a couple good sites that you’ll keep going back to. And once you get the flour blending figured out, you can do pretty much anything! Good luck! :)

  5. Forgot to add http://www.julesglutenfree.com
    and I usually adapt recipes, I think it works better that way. I found that a lot of gluten free recipes were very tasteless or bland, or dense, or gummy.. etc. So, I experiment, and keep notes on what I’ve altered and what works. :)

  6. I really like the website Livingwithout.com. It has been a great resource for me as I cook for my daughter who has gluten and dairy allergies. They also have a magazine, but I have not yet subscribed.

  7. Great topic! I LOVE looking around other GF blogs (which is how I found yours). :) I also follow Celiac Teen, Tartlette, Gingerlemongirl, Gluten Free girl & the chef, and I do a lot of googling. Where would one be without google? :)
