Menu Plan March 19 – Cookbook Inspiration

Posted By Heather On March 19, 2012 @ 10:19 am In Menu Plan | 6 Comments



Good Morning, and welcome back to the Gluten-Free Menu Swap. This week’s roundup is being hosted by Wendy at Celiacs in the House [3]. So, be sure to check out what she and others have on their menus this week. This week’s theme is Cookbook Inspiration. I have many cookbooks, some are dedicated to being gluten free, and some are not. The two latest additions to my library of cookbooks are Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s Deliciously G-Free [4] and Denise Jardine’s The Dairy-Free & Gluten-Free Kitchen [5].

[6]A lot of Hasselbeck’s recipes [4] are similar to the foods I make at home – classic favorites and family-friendly. And there are some recipes that definitely inspire you to create your own versions: The Deliciously Sophisticated Omelet, Egg Muffins and Vegetable Fried Rice. Using simple ingredients, you can easily make these dishes your family’s favorites by mixing in what your family likes best. For the Egg Muffins, Hasselbeck even suggests letting each family member or guest add their favorite ingredients to the muffin cups before baking. Sounds like a great way to get my kids involved in the process.

[7]There are many recipes in Jardine’s cookbook [5] that are new to me – new combinations, new ingredients, new ways to prepare dishes, etc. I found it to be a little intimidating because of that, but it’s also exciting to try something new. What’s really great about this cookbook is that the recipes are dairy-free. (My intolerance for dairy seems to have reached levels that seem to indicate an allergy, so I’ve been removing dairy from our meals and recipes.) This cookbook also has several recipes that would be easy to make your own just by changing out a few ingredients: Crab and Artichoke Frittata, Shepherd’s Pie, Pizza recipes for both a crispy and traditional crust, and Coconut Ice Cream. I’m planning on trying the Frittata, but I think I’ll try it with ham or prosciutto instead of crab. And, I’m really looking forward to trying the Coconut Ice Cream. I have some Andes chocolate mint chips that I think would be a great addition to it.
