When Kyra Bussanich realized she had to go gluten-free, she mourned the toasty morning muffins, moist birthday cakes, and fruity crumbles she thought she'd have to give up. Attending pastry school during the day, she used trial and error to re-create her favorite treats--sans gluten--at night. Word-of-mouth spread about her scrumptious confections, and soon Bussanich opened her very own Portland, Ore., bakery, Crave Bake Shop. When she competed against "regular" bakers on the Food Network's Cupcake Wars--and won!--she proved that gluten-free can taste just as good as the original. With delicious flavor combinations and unique recipes like Cherry White Chocolate Scones, Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes, and Mexican Chocolate Baked Alaska, this collection of 50 foolproof recipes invites home cooks to whip up sweet treats that everyone at the birthday party, brunch or potluck can enjoy.

A breakthrough bread book by the unchallenged expert in gluten-free and wheat-free cooking.
In Bette Hagman's three earlier cookbooks, she created recipes for great-tasting food working with gluten-free flours that are safe for celiacs (those who are intolerant to gluten) and for those with wheat allergies. Knowing from her own hard-earned experience that bread is the greatest loss for those who can't eat wheat, oats, rye or barley, she has experimented with exciting new bean-based flours and has devoted an entire book to breads. Here are yeast breads, yeast-free breads, muffins, rolls, buns, breakfast breads and crackers—a vast array of recipes for the oven or the bread machine—for people who cannot buy breads at a bakery or supermarket but must rely on their own kitchens to provide the staff of life.
Along with dozens of great recipes are: a beginner's guide to understanding and cooking with gluten-free flours; answers to commonly asked questions about baking with these flours; and a source list of where to buy gluten-free baking supplies.
