This book's philosophy is simple—anyone can make great food that is naturally gluten-free. While there are gluten-free products out there that try to substitute for glutenized food, Simply...Gluten-Free Desserts gives cooks and bakers terrific new recipes for food that is naturally gluten-free, offering an amazing variety of choices for taste desserts and sweets.
Carol Kicinski also shows how easy it is to make your own gluten-free flours, and she includes many recipes that don't require wheat substitutions. This means that a lot of the recipes are not only gluten-free, but grain-free as well. Many of the desserts are also dairy- and even sugar-free--without ever sacrificing flavor.
Simply...Gluten-free Desserts celebrates the abundance of delicious recipes that can be made and enjoyed by anyone who is gluten intolerant. While at first living gluten-free can seem challenging, the results of good health, vigor, and energy can make the challenge highly rewarding. And with this book, a luten-free diet doesn't mean giving up on those delicious desserts.

Includes luscious recipes for:
• No-Bake Chocolate Truffle Cake
• Coconut Cupcakes
• Red Velvet Whoopie Pies
• Dairy-Free Cream Puffs
• Frozen Tiramisu
And much more!

“You're in for a real treat with Simply . . . Gluten-free Desserts. There is a tremendous breadth of variety; something to try for every occasion, including just a treat for yourself ater a long day. Enjoy!” —Dr. Vicki Peterson, author of The Gluten Effect

“Kicinski offers recipes for virtually all the desserts that so many people with celiac disease have given up.” —Today's Diet & Nutrition

“Enticing photographs and out-of-the-ordinary recipes.” —The Record (New Jersey)

“There are plenty of desserts that don't contain gluten products, and those form the backbone of this book. Dishes like Mochaccino Mousse, Mexican Chocolate Cake With Cinnamon Whipped Cream, and Rhubarb Fool are among them; it also means that many of the desserts are grain free.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“I found myself dog-earing recipe after recipe of tempting treats. What really drew me in was that 60 percent of the recipes are naturally gluten-free.” —Laura Byrne Russell, The Oregonian

“Simply . . . Gluten-Free Desserts is all about accessibility. Her recipes tend toward the classic--think peanut butter cookies, s'mores, and molten lava cakes--and require only basic baking knowledge. And if you're unsure about anything, a technique or ingredient, the front of the book includes practical guidelines on both.” —Epicurious
