Today’s Giveaway: Gluten-free on a Shoestring

glutenYou don’t have to rely on packaged gluten-free foods to enjoy gluten-free meals. That’s the premise behind Nicole Hunn’s “Gluten-free on a Shoestring” cookbook. To win one of two copies we are giving away, see below.

Hunn is the blogger behind the Gluten-free on a Shoestring blog, who changed her family’s eating habits when she discovered her second child had celiac disease and was unable to absorb gluten.

Whether you’re new to eating gluten-free and fear that the creative foodie part of your life is gone forever, or you’ve been gluten-free for a while and have resigned yourself to lowered expectations and expensive, store-bought gluten-free foods that leave you cold, help is on the way. Everything’s going to be just fine.

You’ll find 125 gluten-free recipes for dinners, desserts, comfort foods, and much more. In the middle of the book, there are mouthwatering photos of meals. I got my eye on the spinach pie. Another recipe I’d like to try is for Focaccia bread.

Hunn has a tip box on almost every recipe showing how much money you are saving. A gluten-free loaf of bread would cost me $16.47 to buy or $3.77 to make. That’s a $12.70 savings!

There are so many bread recipes in here that, gluten-free or not, you’ll still enjoy this cookbook if you’re a bread lover like I am.

To win a copy of “Gluten-free on a Shoestring,” leave a comment sharing why you’d like to win this book. Winners will be revealed tomorrow, June 17. You can also win one of 8 copies we are giving away as door prizes at Frugal Festival Food! on June 25 in LA.

  2. I would like to win this book for my sister. Her two kids have food allergies so it would be handy for her to have this recipe book.

  3. I am a culinary student at community college and I hope to go on with my studies to become a nutritionist. I would love to have this book so I can help people like my elderly neighbor. She is having problems with her immune system and, thus, with healing from a back surgery which is being made worse (according to her doctor) by a gluten intolerance. She’s on a fixed income so she hasn’t been able to make much headway with a diet change because of the expense. I used to bring her food from school but it’s amazing how many things we cook with even just a smidge of wheat flour. I would use this book to help her and her daughters come up with a menu of inexpensive foods she’ll like that are gluten free.

  4. Would love to have some gluten free recipes and I LOVE breads!

  5. I have been gluten free for about 10 years. Back then most people did not even know what “gluten free” meant. As we are on a budget it would be wonderful to learn new options for my family and myself. Thank you.

  13. My Godmother has celiacs and when we have her over for dinner it blows our budget.

  14. I would love to win a copy of this book to give to my friend who was diagnosed with Celiac’s disease in the last year.
