Many gluten-free cookbooks seem to make the assumption that if you're cooking without gluten you're interested in healthy food, and they offer recipes in line with that premise. Readers will see lots of vegetables and lean proteins and a limited amount of sugar and butter. This is certainly not the case with Hunn's (Gluten-Free on a Shoestring) latest. The author found herself missing Twinkies and Devil Dogs once she and her family went gluten free, and she realized others might be missing them, too. Her most recent book offers gluten-averse eaters the chance to once again enjoy the Girl Scout cookies, Nilla Wafers, and Oreos of their childhoods. Her recipes don't call for a long list of hard-to-find ingredients and no special equipment or advanced baking techniques are required. This book is beautifully photographed and designed and offers recipes from cookies to crackers to granola bars. Hunn even includes candy recipes so you can make your own Kit Kat bars and Whoppers.
VERDICT For libraries that have a high demand for gluten-free cookbooks, this will be a fun and unexpected addition.
