New 2010 Gluten-Free Holiday Baking E-Book – Download it Now!

I love you guys. I love hearing from the mother that baked cookies that made her child smile. I love getting the email from someone that made a successful loaf of gluten-free bread, for the first time. I love hearing the comments about how the pictures made you drool & your tummy rumble. I love it all. And because I love you guys, I thought…what can I get them for Christmas? Because of the sheer volume of people, anything that required shipping would never work. And what if I got the size or colour wrong? How embarrassing. So, I started thinking. Then it hit me… an e-book! What would be better for my fellow GF eaters than a cookbook, that could be downloaded (really saves shipping charges that way), and it would have all kinds of recipes for baking during the holiday. However, to really pull it off, I needed help. A call went out, and many of you, both fellow bloggers and readers alike, chipped in, and helped me to create this fantastic Gluten-free Holiday Baking e-book with over 35 recipes. So, without further ado, I want to say to you…Happy Holidays! Thank you for sticking around, for comments and emails, that let me know that I’m not just talking to myself here. By clicking the above image, you will be taken to Google Documents. You do NOT need a Google account to be able to download the e-book, no worries. You WILL need Adobe Reader to view it though. Once the document opens up in Google Docs, you can either open as a PDF in Adobe Reader, print it, or save it to your hard drive. It’s your choice. I think I may save it to a memory stick, and see if I can get it printed out at Staples, 2 sided, and bound. I know I’ll need all these recipes in my kitchen! If you have any problems, just email me at jeanine (at) thebakingbeauties (dot) com and I’ll see what I can do to help you out. Thank you so much to all the contributors, make sure you check out their blogs as well. There is a LOT of great food on these GF food blogs, so there is no reason any of us should feel left out this holiday season.

    Thank you for putting this together and for allowing me to be part of it. And thanks for all you do for the gluten free community.

  4. Carolyn - What Life Dishes Out says

    Thanks and Happy Holidays to you as well! Now, who do I see about the 5 pounds I just gained looking at the recipes?!?! :-)

    It looks great, Jeanine. You did a wonderful job and I am so glad I got to be a part of it. I know so many people who will love the recipes in this!

    This is my first year being Gluten Free. My Mom is concerned about how to help make it gluten free for me and still have the rest of the family be willing to eat the food. I'm hoping to make a couple of GF dishes that everyone will want even if they can eat gluten just to show them that being gluten free isn't so bad. Your generosity in providing a free holiday booklet is just the kind of help I need! Thank you soooo much. And know that your time to try new foods and blog about it is very useful and appreciated by many of us out here that may never leave a comment. Thanks again.

    What an awesome book you put together! How cool! And such a great collection of recipes! Thanks so much for doing this and for giving it away! 😉

    Congratulations, this is such a brilliant idea. I work in a wholefoods store (as in, a store that sells wholefoods, not a Wholefoods supermarket) and we have a LOT of customers who go gluten-free for all kinds of reasons.

    Would it be all right to print out a couple of copies to give to my customers?

  9. Sherylyn says

    THanks so much for this, I plan to print and bound it for my mom's xmas stocking (she has celiacs)and for my own use too! What a lovely giftto al of us :).My oly wish is that every recipe had a picture, not to look a gift horse in the mouth or anything, I just love the pictures.

  10. marshowl says

  16. Jonatha says

    Thank you so much! My daughter was recently diagnosed with gluten intolerance which may be celiac (no biopsy yet), and I have been trying to figure out the best goodies to make for Christmas – thank you for solving my dilemma! I am linking to your post on my blog :) Can't wait to start baking with my daughter!!!

  17. Amy @ Simply Sugar & Gluten-Free says

    I'm honored to be included in this project. And, yes, I agree with everyone else, Jeanine – you did a fantastic job.

    I'm sharing this with my readers tomorrow.

    what is your opinion on when to use superfine rice flours, better batter brand flour or just a combo of readily available gf flours? I have been using brown and white, sorghum, teff, garfava, garbanzo, millet, almond and pecan, tapioca and potato starches…there is so much hubbub about the superfine flours but the cost (+SHIPPING) IS CRAZY and lots of bloggers are into the betterbatter mix alot again lately. you are an accomplished baker and cook and was wonderinmg if you would share how you decide what to use when approaching a recipe.

  19. Jeanine says

    Wow, thank you all for the kind words. I'm so glad that you guys are enjoying the e-book. When you try recipes in it, please let us know how they worked for you & what kinds of changes you made.

    Elizabeth, you most certainly can print out the e-book and give it to your customers. As long as it's FREE! :)

    Sandra, honestly, I use what I can get my hands on. I have regular ole "brown rice flour". I would like to try some of those preblended flours, but since I'd have to pay shipping, and higher charges on everything, I buy what I can locally and use it. I haven't got it all figured out, I know it could use some tweaking, but it works well for me. I haven't ever noticed a texture problem due to using "regular" brown rice flour, sometimes it has more to do with the wrong amount of xanthan gum, not enough liquid, etc. So, if I had it available to me, I might give it a try. But, since I don't, I don't fret, just make do with what you got. :)

    Thank you so much for all the kind comments, you guys rock!

  20. Karen says

    Thank you for a wonderful collection of goodies I can eat and won’t make me upset or worse, fat ! I will probably substitute stevia and coconut flour for the sugar and starchy flours that’s in them to keep the Christmas bulge from appearing. But this is a good start to going totally sugar free and gluten free ! Merry Christmas to you and yours ! <3

  21. Angela McGhee says

    Thank you so much for all of these! Everything I have tried so far has been wonderful! My celiac son just told me this morning that the cinnamon rolls are even better than what he remembers pre-celiac! This has been a difficult road for us and we’re still working to make everyone’s tummies feel better (3 of my 4 kids have celiac so we’re all gluten free!) and this website has been a tremendous help in letting them all feel “normal” again!
