The Autism Mom Cooks GFCF Traditional Holiday Fare

Autism Mom Stephanie Hemenway has done it again. She created another beautiful GFCF cookbook, this one for holiday cooking and baking. Special holiday pricing at Amazon dot com offers the cookbook for $15. A dollar of every purchase goes to Heros with Handicaps.

The Autism Mom Cooks Gluten-Free Casein-Free Traditional Holiday Fare includes recipes for Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas, all GFCF with corn free, soy free and nut free substitutions available for each recipe. Click on the photo of the cover at the right to take you to Amazon dot com where you can peek inside.

Thanksgiving covers the traditional turkey and all the fixins, including the challenging-to-make-GFCF stuffing, green bean casserole, rolls and pie.

Hanukkah recipes include Braised Brisket, Lemon Rosemary Roast Chicken, Potato Latkes, Home-made Applesauce, Frited Spinish Salad with Walnuts, Honey Glazed Carrots, Herb Roasted Green Beans, Tzimmes, Apple Kugel, Ginger Pear Upside-Down Dake, Baked Apples with Spiced Fruit and Sufganoit (Jelly Donuts).

Christmas recipes include Roast Goose with Pan Gravy, Citrus Rice Dressing, Roast Beef, Yorkshire Pudding, Herb Crusted Roast Potatoes, Candied Yams, Roast Winter Squash with Maple Glaze, Mince Pie and French Apple Pie.

The "Seasonal Favorites" section is my favorite, and it includes Pumpkin bread, Gingerbread, Fruitcake, Stollen, ten cookie recipes and eight candy recipes. Six recipes in the "Festive Family Drinks" concludes the cookbook. I am surprised to see an egg nog recipe there -- it looks delicious!

I am partial to cookbooks with photographs of completed recipes. "Traditional Holiday Fare" delivers beautiful color photos oppposite each page of recipes. If you like photos in your cookbooks, you'll like this one.

There is at least one error in a recipe, which can happen during the publishing process, and Hemenway has a page on her web site to alert us to them. Be sure to check htere before you make the Gingerbread Men recipe.

Hemenway generously offers a free recipe of the month on her web site (sometimes she offers more than one). Be sure to check HERE to see what's new.

Hemenway sent me The Autism Mom Cooks Gluten-Free Casein-FreeTraditional Holiday Fare at no cost so that I could review it for you on my blog. It arrived late last week. It's a beautiful cookbook and it's filled with recipes our family is likely to make and eat. Stay tuned. I'll update the blog as I cook from it.
