Happy April Fools Day! It’s always been one of my favorite days of the year. I’ve always had a great joke ready to play on my family. For years I would torment them until they started to mark the date on their calendars. Now they were ready for me. My favorite joke so far was one I played on my husband. He’s a creature of habit just like the rest of us so I knew generally where he would park his car at his office. So I drove 1 hour from our home to his office and moved his car a couple of floors above in the parking garage where he parked. When he was ready to leave he could not find his car and thought it was stolen. When he went down to the attendant to report it, they handed him a note wishing him a Happy April Fool’s Day and letting him know where his car was parked. It’s been hard to top that, but one year I will and he knows it.
I thought about what joke could I write today to get everyone all riled up only to figure out it was a joke. But I spend so much time teaching and trying to get out good and accurate information about living gluten and dairy free that I thought it would be counterproductive. So today I will spare my readers one of my blood boiling April Fool’s jokes.
But before we go any further I just want to make sure you go back to Tuesday’s post, Great Gluten Free Pasta Challenge and let me know if you’re in. I’ve had people email me that they are going to give it a try. Go back and add your name to the comments section if you’re going to play with pasta with us. Check out the video on how to make gluten free pasta and the recipe that was added in last night.
Back to today. Instead of a joke I thought I would pick up where Amy left off on her post this week on Slightly Indulgent Tuesdays. She talked about Taking Baby Steps and Moving Forward and she shared some great resources. That got me thinking I would love to see one long list of really good gluten free books.
So I’m asking you. What are your favorite gluten free books? Are they cookbooks, information books, e-books, and food reference books that you use? Were there books that got you started? How about books you had to go back and read once you gained some perspective? What are your ‘go to” books for recipes? Share with us your favorites and what you like about them.
Tell everyone you know we’re creating The GF Book List. Have them come and share their picks. Please try to give the author’s name along with the title of the book. Feel free to share the title of your favorite recipe or chapter from the book. The whole point is to share.
