Gluten-Free on a Shoestring

My favorite gluten-free cookbook thus far is Gluten-Free On A Shoestring by Nicole Hunn.  This cookbook has been a huge asset for me.  Cooking and eating gluten free is expensive.  We live in a posh resort town, but live on a modest budget.  "Regular" food here is expensive.  Gluten-free varieties are just outrageously priced.  This cookbook offers wonderful tips and great advice on how to save money while cooking gluten-freely.  There are tips for stretching your food, "piggybacking" your meals, buying and cooking in bulk, etc.  Pre-packaged mixes, boxes and bars are great when you're pressed for time, traveling or caught with an unexpected party, but it's much more economical, and usually much tastier, when you make your own.  

Our family favorite recipes from Gluten-Free On A Shoestring are the pizza dough, Chicken & Dumplings, and Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars(pictured above).  I baked the pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars for dessert last Thanksgiving and they were a huge hit!  Happy Cooking!!
