Simply…Gluten-Free Quick Meals Review and Contest

Carol Kiniski has outdone herself this time for sure.  Her new cookbook, Simply . . . Gluten-free Quick Meals: More Than 100 Great-Tasting Recipes for Good Food Fast is brilliant.  The book is laid out by meal menus within the chapters so you don’t have to keep flipping through the book to make a meal.  There are chapters on Quick Mixes, Simple Suppers, Easy Entertaining, Get Up and Go, Pantry Raid, Slow Cooker and Quick-Cooking Strategies and ideas on stocking your pantry.  There are so many choices and of course you can mix and match.  The recipes are noted if they are Dairy-Free or Dairy-Free Adaptable and the same for Vegetarian and Vegan options.

Just last night we had her Almond-Crusted Chicken Piccata minus the parmesan for this dairy free gal.  The recipes range from Enchilada Lasagna to a Steakhouse Filet Mignon.  And of course there are desserts mixed in there like Mini Almond Orange Cakes which are delicious and a Blueberry Fool which will have you eating dessert in a snap of your fingers.

If you are looking for easy ways to have quick gluten-free meals that taste good and are easy to get on the table, then you’ll want to get your own copy of this book.  See below how you can win a copy.

This is Carol’s second book.  Her first book Simply . . . Gluten-free Desserts: 150 Delicious Recipes for Cupcakes, Cookies, Pies, and More Old and New Favorites is one to have on hand if you like desserts or making them for others.  The cupcakes are wonderful as well as her standard flour mixture.  These are two books you’ll want in your library.

But today I’m giving away her new book Simply . . . Gluten-free Quick Meals: More Than 100 Great-Tasting Recipes for Good Food Fast.


Here is how you can enter to win your own copy:

All submissions will be verified.

Contest ends on Sunday April 29th at noon ET.  Good luck to all.

For those who just can’t wait you can find the book in my Amazon store.

    I love the consept on recipes for a whole meal in one place. I get tired of thinking about what to have for dinner with all my food allergies.

    I subscribe to your newsletter and signed up to get your recipes via email too! I really enjoy getting them. My son is on a GFCFSF diet and I need all the help I can get. That is why I really want Simply . . . Gluten-free Quick Meals: More Than 100 Great-Tasting Recipes for Good Food Fast cookbook. I have been in a rut these last couple of weeks and think this cookbook (along with your website) can help me.

  12. Dawn April 23, 2012 at 9:44 am #

    I already subscribe to both the newsletter and the recipes. I am new to eating dairy and gluten free, started in February. I feel better and have more energy eating this way, but struggle with finding recipes that I can trust will work out well. I have tried local gf breads and they crumble in my hands. Having a cookbook that I know I can trust and gaining new items to add to my available meals would be great! Thanks for having this opportunity!

    I subscribe to the email and to the newsletter. I look forward to the updates as I am newly diagnosed gf and dairy free. I am struggling with creative dishes to eat and keep myself energized and healthy. This book would greatly help me get above the "learning curve" 🙂

    I think I am already subscribed to both. My 5 yo son was diagnosed with wheat, dairy, and egg allergies 2 weeks ago. I had already been making a major effort to get away from the processed foods in our diet and had finally built up a decent collection of recipes that my son and DH would eat. Unfortunately my son can no longer eat most of those. Now I feel like I am back at square one. I have been trying to prepare foods that fit into his new diet but he won’t eat many of them. I desperately need a really good allergen-free cookbook! Winning the cookbook would be wonderful! I am so thankful your site is here. I visit it almost everday!

  25. Joyce April 23, 2012 at 11:48 am #

    I have subscribed to your newsletter for a while now and have really found it helpful. I realized about a year ago that I had issues with gluten and dairy after doing an elimination diet. Doctor's are really good at telling you what NOT to do but not so helpful when it comes to learning a whole new vocabulary and cooking skill set when you need to change something HUGE in your life! Your blog has helped me greatly and I appreciate your knowledge and the fact that you are willing to share it. I'd love to win the cookbook as it would be a great help. Thank you!

  26. jess April 23, 2012 at 4:05 pm #

    I already subscribe to both but would love a new cook book to help give me some new ideas for meals for my family. It’s hard to change up the usual go to meals without new ideas. Plus I love reading cook books they are my absolute favorite read.

  27. Susan April 23, 2012 at 4:31 pm #

    I subscribe to your recipes already and just love them! I could definitely use more inspiration in preparing healthy and tasty gluten free meals!

  28. Karen April 23, 2012 at 7:53 pm #

    I think I'm on your newsletter and recipe lists. Quick GF meals would be great for our family. With two working parents it is a challenge to try and prepare good meals and eat them in the short time between when we get home and when we need to start the kid's bed time routines. We need all the efficiency we can get.

  29. Cindy April 23, 2012 at 9:06 pm #

    I have already subscribed to your email recipes and just subscribed to your newsletter. I work full time and have two kids who are gluten and dairy free, so I need easy and quick. Thanks!

  30. Karin April 23, 2012 at 9:29 pm #

    I already subscribe. My 16 year old daughter is gluten and lactose intolerant. We homeschool, so sometimes I am trying to throw a meal together at the last minute – sometimes later than I would like! The cookbook would be a huge help when I just can't think of what to make and serve. Love your site!

  31. dee mallett April 24, 2012 at 2:35 am #

    I am a subscriber and receive your newsletters. Thoroughly enjoying them. I have been going gluten free these last 8 months. Its a challenging journey. I cook everything from scratch for many years, brings much awareness to what I cook now.

    I was diagnosed n Feb 2012 with Celiac Disease and my family would love me to have a wonderful cookbook so I can learn to cook good things that we can all eat and enjoy as a family. Now I am left out alot since I am new to this I tend to make them supper then grill myself some chicken or fish and just eat veggies. This book would be a GREAT kick start to my new lifestyle.
