My Favorite Cookbook: Sweet & Simple Gluten-Free Baking (Giveaway for 3 Books!)

It's not often I do a post like this nor do I ever use cookbooks. But after trying a few recipes from my good friend Chrystal Carver's cookbook, I can't help but share it with you. As many of you know, I'm still in my teens and I'm all about recipes that are easy. The fewer ingredients, the better. That's why I honestly find this cookbook to be one of the best that I've ever used since all of the recipes require 10 ingredients or less. It doesn't require crazy flours or starches. Just a few simple ones to make some AWESOME recipes that are great for any beginner. I'm excited to share with you what I made as well as a special discount to get this cookbook for yourself!

What this cookbook includes:
  • 75 simple recipes using 10 ingredients or less (except two recipes, but I couldn’t leave them out – that would be doing you a disservice)
  • 40+ recipes that are either naturally dairy-free or have dairy-free options
  • Each recipe uses traditional gluten-free ingredients. You won’t find anything extravagant or expensive required
  • A FULL PAGE COLOR PHOTO for each recipe in the cookbook
  • A section on the different gluten-free flours and how to store them
  • Basic tips and tricks for baking gluten-free

The main ingredients you'll need for recipes in this cookbook:
  • Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
  • Xanthan Gum
  • Refined Sugar
  • Baking Soda
  • Baking Powder
These seemed to be the few main ingredients that were used the most in all of the recipes. Xanthan Gum and All Purpose Flour are 2 staples when it comes to gluten-free baking. These ingredients used in the cookbook make these recipes super easy to make.

More about the author, Chrystal Carver:
I’m Chrystal Carver, the recipe developer and writer behind I come from a family with a history of cooking and baking, and I’ve been an avid baker since I was little. I started developing gluten-free recipes in 2009 when my daughters both tested positive for Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance. I believe that baking gluten free should not require extravagant ingredients or complicated steps. With my background in problem solving and design for usability, I started converting everyday gluten-containing classics to easy gluten-free recipes. I’ve contributed articles and recipes to several food publications, magazines and newspapers, including Gluten Free & More Magazine, My life with food Allergies, Gluten-Free Living, Oregonian, Travel Oregon, Go Dairy Free, Wheat Watchers Online and Gluten-Free Portland.

In my spare time, I enjoy working in the community, volunteering and pleasing gluten-free palates. I also enjoy developing recipes, hiking, swimming and traveling with my family.

My Final Thoughts:
Whether you're new to gluten-free or a 7 year veteran like me, everyone can always use some recipes that are easy to make. I personally will always like the recipes that require 10 ingredients or less because gluten-free is expensive anyways, am I right? I never promote a product or cookbook if I don't believe in it and I can honestly say I've used this cookbook over 5 times in the last month. I'm a teenager and I never use cookbooks, so that should say a lot. That being said, enter my giveaway and hope that you win! If you don't win, then it's only $14 for 75 easy gluten-free recipes...what could be better than that?
