One of the difficult parts of going gluten-free (aside from shopping) is cooking and finding recipes that you and your family will enjoy. You may even pick up a recipe book (or been given one by a well-meaning friend). We did that. We still have those recipe books. They are in pristine condition.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that they didn't help me the way I wanted to be helped. I liked the recipes we had. I just needed to know how to make them gluten-free and taste as close to the original as possible.
Right now I have three categories of recipes. (Please note that this is a work in progress.)
