Eating gluten-free can be expensive. Notice I said “can be”, but it doesn’t have to be. Nicole Hunn, author of Gluten-Free on a Shoestring, tackles gluten-free cooking and baking without breaking the bank in her first book, Gluten-Free on a Shoestring. The latest installment, Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Quick & Easy, shows us how to do the same, but quickly and easily. We are all busy, but that is no excuse to spend a fortune on gluten-free pre-packaged food and baked goods or get take-out on a regular basis. Check out how many recipes I marked to make in this book!

Praise for Gluten-Free on a Shoestring:
“Hunn successfully tackles a chief complaint voiced by special-diet newbies: sticker shock. Her practical tips for shopping and cooking to save time and money are a gift to all of us who are paying too much for too little.”—Living Without
This book is full of wonderful ideas from yeast-free, gluten-free bread (WHAT?! – Yes, really!) and English muffins to yeast-free pizza dough to a dairy-free, egg-free “Crazy Cake” that can be put together in 10 minutes and baked for 25. Hunn includes a list of Convenience Pantry Items to Buy, A Note About Gluten-Free Flours and Make-It-Snappy Kitchen Tools and Equipment in the front of the book to help ensure you are ready to go.
I truly enjoyed reading and cooking/baking from this book. My favorite, though, has to be the No-Bake Cheesecake. The recipe suggests using Schar Shortbread Cookies or Vanilla Wafer Bars, but I didn’t have either on hand. I ended up using Lucy’s Chocolate Merry Mint Cookies. I know, right? AH.MAZ.ING! I did omit the lemon juice since I was using mint cookies and added mini-chocolate chips on top. I may have hidden some of this away from Jon the food monster that lives in my house.
