Cooks&Books&Recipes Featured Cook Debbie Phillips:
When our eighteen-year-old daughter was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis a little over a year ago, we discovered a wealth of information on the impact of food and stress on the body. As a result, we embarked on a campaign of healthy eating: gluten-free, dairy-free, and processed-sugar-free. You can imagine the impact this had on a former Dr Pepper and Krispy Cream donut addict! Yep, we traveled a rough road. The Internet is loaded with information on gluten-free or dairy-free or sugar-free, but finding decent recipes incorporating all three is a bit tough. In addition, as a mom of four, I just don’t have the time to spend on the myriad of steps required for most gluten-free cooking. I was overwhelmed! Enter Amy Green and her vast experience in cooking GF, DF, and SF! Her website saved me. Most recently, I discovered her new cookbook: Simply Sugar & Gluten-Free: 180 Easy and Delicious Recipes You Can Make in 20 Minutes or Less. Since any dairy requirement in these recipes can easily be substituted with rice, almond, or soy milk, I now have recipes for truly delicious breads, muffins, main dishes, salads, soups, and desserts that we can prepare in 20 minutes or less. Really, it’s true! And speaking of desserts . . .
Aaaahhhh, the late-night sweet tooth! This has been a real problem in our gluten-free, dairy-free, and processed-sugar-free household, especially since several eaters are still in the rebellion stage. But we recently found a delightful surprise in Amy’s Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free: Almond Butter and Jelly Cookies. The recipe calls for agave nectar, and we used Earth Balance Buttery Spread as the substitute for butter. The result was just the right amount of sweetness in a cookie that’s rich enough to satisfy all of our dessert cravings!
