I can't live without the cookbook called "The Gluten Free Kitchen" written by Roben Ryberg. She uses nothing more than corn starch and potato starch for 99% of the recipes in this book. It is a wonderful starter book for the newly diagnosed. I ALWAYS send a copy of this book home with a newly diagnosed member at my support group. I think the simplicity and ease of the book gives a sence of empowerment to the newly diagnosed, AND who couldn't use a GF onion ring recipe!

Gluten Free for Dummies, I dont' rememebr who wrote it, is a pretty easy read with enough information to be helpful but doesn't go overboard with details about stuff that really doens't help. It has some basic recipes and some good advice in it, as well as a few lists that come in handy.
The Gluten Free Bible by Jax Peters is also a good read, more recipes than GF for Dummies, and has lists of special restaurants and bakeries around the country that specialize in GF food. There's also cards in various languages that would come in handy for a world traveler explaining to a restaurant what can and can't be eaten. GFB is not as light-hearted as the other, but more informative and has many anecdotal stories and personal advice from the author on how to deal with different social situations as well as your own emotions.

I read everything I can, but my favorite is Gluten Free Girl. Mainly I read her blog. She just has a great attitude about this whole gluten free thing. She doesn't look at it as a curse like so many do, she embraces the new way of cooking instead of trying to make things the way things used to be. It's refreshing. I just wish I liked as many different foods as she does!
just search for Gluten Free Girl, her blog is really good to read. She's about to give birth so she's probably taking a break soon, but just read her past post. (and you will have read most of her book)
