I don't have that cookbook but as you know I am a big fan of Carol Fenster cookbooks and have her 1000 gluten free recipes book and 2 others. Love her sorghum flour blend and use it in most of my baking. Barb

I was searching for a book yesterday and found I had the Quick and easy cookbook by Carol Fenster. It was actually the very first gluten free book I had ever bought.

Nancy, I have wondered about this book also. I went to see if there was a cheap copy on e-bay, but didn't see one for the price I am willing to pay.

The book is actually called The cake mix doctor bakes gluten free by Anne Byrn so the recipes use a gluten free mix as a base and then doctor it up. I will let you know when I give one a try.

Nancy - I haven't seen the cake doctor cookbook that is gluten free. What do they use for flour/cake mix substitute? Do the recipes look good? Barb

I found the cake doctor (gluten free) cookbook when I went to BJ's last week. I always look at the cookbook section when I go there as I have found a few GF bargains.

Jen did the cookbook come? Let me know what recipes you like the best and I will share the ones I like. 1000 recipes is a lot and will keep you busy for awhile. I converted my families favorite chocolate cake recipe using the suggestions in the front of the book and have made it multiple times for birthdays, wedding showers and family and friend celebrations. My sister-in-law who is not gluten free asked for the recipe and no one can tell the difference. My older daughter spent the night and ate a piece for breakfast and her comment was "YUM ...are you sure this is gluten free and I can eat it??? YUM!" Love Carol Fenster's recipes. Hope you have fun cooking! Smilles Barb

@TELLITFORWARD: When I get a chance, I will post the recipes that I find to be great. That way you can get the recipes.

@DJ4HEALTH: I was getting tired of searching the web for recipes. I saw this book and glad I got it. I am new to completely cooking gluten-free and am already finding this book super helpful.

I use the computer for my recipes too. Have enough cookbooks and can't buy any more.

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I'd love to buy that one. Unfortunately, it hasn't been recorded, so I'm always delighted when any of you post GF recipes here or link to other websites.
Unless one is visually impaired, it's unlikely you'd want a recorded or Brailled book. I'm hoping!

I am not familiar with her cookbook, but glad you enjoy it. It seems I go to the computer anymore for my recipes.
