About

Who we are

About a year ago I became interested in writing a how-to book for people transitioning to a gluten-free lifestyle.  I wanted it to be a one-stop experience where readers could find delicious recipes and get tips on how to make the gluten-free lifestyle easy.  I knew that I needed great recipes.  As a fan of Christi's Mom, What's for Dinner? Blog, I contacted her to see if she was interested in writing a book with me.  She accepted and we formed our cookbook creating team.

Christi has been in love with cooking her entire life.  She is a self-educated chef who is dedicating to continual improvement and exploration in the kitchen.  She started cooking gluten-free in 2009, when her daughter was diagnosed with Celiac's disease.  Since then she has created and posted over 800 recipes. 

Our Mission 

Our mission is to produce a book that will help the average American become gluten-free EASILY.  We want to make it easy for newly diagnosed Celiacs, friends and gluten-free dieters to find useful information and recipes that make it easy to live gluten-free.

About the Book

Let me introduce you to the book!  We have included several fabulous features that make this a must-have for all gluten-free eaters.

Our cookbook is for cooking!  We've made it landscape format so that the pages will stay open while you cook.

Each recipe is easy to make and easy to read. We've included extras like gluten-free products suggestions, full color photos, and tips for living gluten-free.

You'll also find great resources that you can reference like... Helpful Websites where you can find recipe blogs and places to purchase gluten-free products.  Our Favorite Products section contains a comprehensive list of the gluten-free products we love and use.  The Gluten-free Toolbox is where you'll find a shopping list of items you'll need for your pantry.  Featured Tips will give you the best advice on how to live gluten-free.  The Gluten-Free Toolbox gives you suggested shopping lists for getting started.

Risks and challenges

This project is well underway. We have conceptualized, organized and written much of the book. We are in the final stages of taking pictures, editing and working with our printer and distributor. We are already advertising the book on Christi's blog, facebook, twitter, and other social media sites as well as kickstarter and word of mouth. We are doing everything we can to ensure that this book is a success. I personally will not stop until the book is created to my satisfaction.

That being said, there are still some risks involved with the project. Illness, death, or loss of data may mean that our book publication date will get postponed. In the event of this emergency, we will notify you.

We have set our goal high so that we can print as many books as possible and pass the savings onto you. In the event that we do not earn as much money as we hoped, we will print a smaller number of books or find other means of financing this project. Like I said, I will see this project out to the end. We will find a solution to any setbacks that come our way!
