Many are being diagnosed with celiac disease and being forced to give up gluten. Complete Gluten-Free Diet & Nutrition Guide by Alexandra Anca, a registered dietitian who holds a master’s degree in food science, with Theresa Santandrea-Cull should probably be a reference for those faced with that dietary change. As such, the book spends the first of five parts explaining the celiac disease, its symptoms and its effects on one’s diet. The next section introduces the steps one must go through in providing a gluten-free environment and how to prepare for this lifestyle change. Part three tackles the ins and outs of providing the body with essential nutrients while having to replace items in one’s diet. Part four is an easy-to-read and thorough look at a month-long meal plan utilizing many of the recipes set forth in the book’s part five. Much more than a cookbook sharing a unique take on bread recipes, Complete Gluten-Free Diet & Nutrition Guide details the management of an enjoyable gluten-free way of living. The book focuses on the positives by giving lists of what can be eaten in a gluten-free diet.

Sacramento Book Review

January 8, 2011



I feel so much better when I'm eating gluten-free but there are two things that I really miss: fresh out of the oven homemade buns and a good chocolate chip cookie. I've tried many times to translate my old recipes into gluten-free with little success. I even went online and searched for gluten--free recipes only to come up with bland tasteless morsels that made me crave the real thing even more. I ordered 250 Gluten-Free Favorites hoping that I could find some sort of palatable alternative to quench my cravings. I definitely hit the jackpot. This book has a white and a brown bun recipe, chocolate chip cookies, muffins, and even fluffy pancake recipe. I actually think the bread, roll, pancake, and waffle recipes taste better than with the traditional recipes. The key to the delicious taste is a mixture of different types of gluten--free flours. It must have taken the authors years to get the right measurements, textures, and flavours. Another thing I love is that qwuite a lot of the recipes that I will be using frequently can be made in bulk and then kept in the freezer.

125 Best Gluten-Free Bread Machine Recipes by Donna Washburn and Heather Butt is an absolute goldmine of fabulous recipes for making all sorts of gluten free goodies in your bread machine. Before receiving my own copy of this book, I’d read reviews on which stated that the authors actually wrote this book for the zojirushi bread machine. This is not the case.In fact, this book has a lot of guidance for using any 1.5 to 2 pound bread machine for baking. Each recipe is written with a typical wheat setting in mind, but a gluten free setting is recommended. I have been using a Cuisinart bread machine with a gluten free setting for baking recipes from this book and I could not be more pleased with the results. You do not need to have the most expensive bread machine on the market in order to be successful making gluten free breads. Each recipe I’ve tried from this book (and I’ve tried most of them) has come out beautifully. My family’s favorite gluten free breads are the Henk’s Flax Bread and the Cinnamon Raison Bread, which turns out better than any bakery loaf, bar none!  We all refer lovingly to Henk’s Flax Bread as “Uncle Henk’s Bread”, as we feel a true bond with this “Henk” and his wondrous bread. We used to purchase healthy grain breads from the grocery store each week.  However, since receiving this cookbook back in February, we have not bought one single loaf of bread. I’ve been making ALL of our bread from scratch, using no other book than this one. Because of this, we’ve saved money, lost weight, and we’re eating so much more nutritiously now. Honestly, if you plan on making gluten free breads in your bread machine, this is the book you need. Store-bought gluten free breads can be dry and tasteless, but the breads you’ll make from recipes in this book will most definately amaze you. I give this book 5 spatulas! This is a must have book for anyone with a bread machine.  I would recommend trying the cinnamon raison bread and henk’s flax bread for anyone who is using a bread machine and would like a healthy alternative to ordinary breads.  These are sooooooooo good.

Complete Gluten-Free Diet & Nutrition Guide written by Alexandra Anca with Theresa Santandrea-Cull is a thorough beginner manual to celiac disease. Alexandra Anca is a certified dietician, and she has put together a well thought out guide for the celiac. The first 136 pages of the book contain descriptions of celiac disease, additional associated illnesses, and vitamin deficiencies typically attributed to this particular disease. There are health charts, aisle by aisle shopping lists, a comprehensive description of a gluten-free diet, along with in-depth explanations of what foods are high in protein and fiber and tips on how to combat vitamin deficiencies. She includes the Canada Food Guide and a helpful Vegetarian Food Guide Rainbow. There is a chapter dedicated to gluten-free meal guides based on charts for men and women, varying ages, and activity levels. This would be a great book if you are just learning the ropes for gluten-free eating, or if you would like to have a meal plan that will help you loose weight without gluten. This is really a great all encompassing nutritional reference book. Even a veteran celiac could learn a thing or two from Alexandra Anca.

I am not a celiac, but avoiding gluten has meant a positive change in my skin, hair, health, digestion, mental clarity, and energy level. Yee-haw!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book!

I bought this book about a week ago and couldn't be happier with the purchase. The book is so comprehensive and easy to understand. I especially love the way that the author, Alexandra Anca, organizes foods to buy (and not buy) according to grocery-aisle shopping. She goes aisle by aisle (like the grocery store) and includes detailed lists of foods that are safe and gluten-free, as well as those that aren't. In addition to this, the menus (a month's worth) and recipes are practical, balanced and delicious (well, the ones that I've tried so far!). I highly recommend buying this book if you, or anyone one that you love, is in need of help with their gluten-free diet. This is an excellent book!

I have just purchased this book but am very excited to get started using these recipes. I have read the entire book and am ready to get started. I have struggled with trying to adapt regular recipes for years and am very happy to get started with some tested recipes that look great.

Of all the gluten-free cook books out there, I found this one to be particularly amazing. Also contains lactose free recipes ! I've tried most of the recipes of this book and I'm not disappointed. A ''must have'' for gluten intolerant people.

Great Gluten-Free Recipes

Celiac disease is a poorly understood digestive disorder that affects both children and adults. It is an auto-immune disease that affects the small intestine, and is the result of an intolerance to gluten found in wheat, rye and barley and products derived from these grains. There are no drugs or a cure for this disease. Only a diet free of foods containing gluten is effective in living with the disease and avoiding the symptoms which make celiac disease so troubling.

While there are a number of gluten-free cookbooks on the market, Donna Washburn and Heather Butt have elevated gluten-free (GF) cooking from relatively boring, excessively "healthful" recipes to delicious, easy to prepare recipes made from easily obtainable ingredients. The book is well laid out, with good, sensible information on the ingredients required for safe gluten-free eating. The illustrations are well-done and colourful, and accurately reflect how the dishes look when properly prepared. All the recipes we have tried have been successful and tasty, but several stand out as exceptional. These include ciabatta (p. 38) an excellent substitute for regular bread, without the pound-cake texture normally found in other GF breads; the batter fried fish (p. 59); and the chocolate chip cookies (p. 160).

The equipment and ingredient glossaries provide useful tips and important information for making the recipes successfully. The common sense approach to what is a serious dietary problem for many children and adults alike truly helps to demystify some of the more poorly understood aspects of this disease, and makes it less of a chore and a lot more fun to eat well without wheat and wheat-based products.

Best ever gluten free cookbook!

I am totally impressed with this cookbook. I have adapted recipes and cooked for my celiac husband for over 10 years and I thought I knew a lot about good gluten free baking. However, this book has given me a ton of good ideas (and recipes that work) and has rekindled my interest in baking. I particularly liked the lemon yogurt scones, shortcake, and white cake recipes.
I tried the breadmaker recipe for white bread and for the first time produced bread that looked good,was sliceable, tasted great (according to my husband) and was so easy to make. Not to mention much cheaper than buying it at a specialty bakery! Another plus is that the recipes are good enough for me (a non-celiac) too! The wealth of information about alternative flours has given me the means to adapt a lot of my own recipes successfully.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm Hooked on 125 Best Gluten-Free Recipes

Donna Washburn and Heather Butt have a real winner on their hands here. They have taken the specialized cooking and baking required for a gluten-free diet and re-thought it from starter to dessert. For those people suffering with celiac disease this book can give them back their appetites for the foods they lovingly remember. Many of the recipes are very innovative and everyone I've tried works well and is delicious. 125 doesn't begin to account for the variations given for each recipe - what a great way to make a new favourite into three new favourites. The equipment and techniques glossaries as well as the helpful hints on each recipe make this a valuable resource book for anyone stuggling with gluten-free cooking. What a treat to salivate over the delicious pictures of pizza, battered fish and cakes. Each of the bread recipes includes detailed instructions for making with a bread machine or with a mixer, so everyone can accomplish fabulous results. This book is loaded with information about the gluten-free diet and it's ingredients and will appeal to the cook and non-cook alike. My Gluten-Free cookbook library wouldn't be complete without it!

I cannot ad more - Washburn and Butt have the GF solution

All of their books are great - I have not found one any more different than another one - continuously good great and phenominal recipes that I feed my family, especially the cakes and they area hit. I started off 26 years ago with none of these brilliant chefs and making a chocolate potato cake - it was a brick, went down like a brick with lots of ice cream. Donna and Heather have made me see the way...

If you only want one Celiac cookbook - this is it.

I have a half dozen gluten free cookbooks. This is the 2nd one I ever bought, and it's the one that I use the most. It includes a recipe for battered fish and a Tempura batter which I use to make onion rings. Both are fantastic and you could serve them to a non-Celiac and they wouldn't know that they are gluten free! These two recipes alone make the book worth buying - oh, what Celiac wouldn't enjoy fish n chips or a burger and onion rings?? It also includes bread recipes (both traditional and bread machine) which are also pretty decent (though they wouldn't fool a non-Celiac, of course). Their pizza recipe is pretty good too, though I'm still on the hunt for a pizza crust recipe that could pass as a non-GF one.

Praise for 250 Gluten-Free Favorites, Complete Gluten-Free Cookbook, The Best Gluten-Free Family Cookbook & 125 Best Gluten-Free Recipes:

I love and completely agree with your approach of emphasizing whole grains and nutritious ingredients. You’ve proved that a large percentage of starch in a GF flour blend is not necessary. Your recipes taste delicious, and I believe the hearty flavor of the whole grains actually makes them tastier than the counterpart made with a traditional rice/starch GF flour mix. My favorite bread recipe is the Ancient Grains Bread. I make this regularly, and my kids (non-celiacs, ages 6 and 8) actually prefer it to wheat bread. The Honey Walnut Bread is wonderful too.

— C. Coffey, GIG Support Group, Rochester, New York



You have outdone yourselves! 250 Gluten-Free Favorites arrived in the mail on Friday, and it looks incredible. I am just thrilled that you are using the healthy flours and grains that I’ve been harping on about for years and minimizing the empty starches. Wonderful! Last night I paged through every recipe. I have 37 flagged as ones to try first!

— Anne Wraggett, Victoria, British Columbia

At last I have your new cookbook, 250 Gluten-Free Favorites, to add to my collection of favorite GF cooking books. I cannot wait to take your book to our CCA meeting. This Christmas I will buy two more books for family members. In the past I have received calls from new celiacs about GF cookbooks. I have no problem recommending your books!

— Janice Symons, Barrie, Ontario

I’m really looking forward to using 250 Gluten-Free Favorites. As I’ve mentioned before, cooking is not something I’ve been great at or particularly enjoyed. However, since my celiac diagnosis and the discovery of all of your books, I haven’t had one failure! You’ve both given me the gift of confidence that I’m able to succeed, and I thank you.

— Sheila Green, London, Ontario

If you are gluten-intolerant or wheat-sensitive, Best Gluten-Free Family Cookbook is a must-have cookbook. I have tried quite a few of the recipes. In almost all cases, the results were a superior product. In fact, my family, who are not gluten-intolerant, prefer the muffin and waffle recipes over traditional wheat products. As a final bonus, the authors have incorporated higher-fiber and nutrient-dense grains to guard against nutritional deficiencies.

— D. Mccullough, Kansas

I love 125 Best Gluten-Free Recipes! The Pineapple-Carrot Cake is amazing. I made it for my boyfriend’s birthday — and any time I can find an excuse to make it. It is so moist and yummy . . . even people without celiac say it is the best carrot cake they have had! I am always making the pizza crust too! I haven’t tried many of the other recipes, but those two definitely make the book worth the purchase for me!

— R. Okalice, Spokane, Washington



Your cookbooks have restored my confidence. My husband was diagnosed six years ago with celiac disease, and two of our children were also diagnosed over the next year and a half. I am not celiac myself, and I still have three kids who seem to be fine, so we have a split household, and I still try to cater to both. I considered myself a pretty good baker, but did I ever struggle with gluten-free baking. I had failure after failure, so I quit baking. Every once in a while, I would gather up the courage to try again. Then my mom gave me 125 Best Gluten-Free Recipes for Christmas, and I have had more success with your recipes than any other! We love the White Cake recipe (cake is one thing my husband really misses), and for Christmas I now always make your Poultry Stuffing Bread. Thanks so much for what you do!

— K. Bauer, Texas

You can imagine my joy when I tried your Brown Bread recipe and had immediate success. My husband’s reaction was, ‘You’ve arrived.’ Since then, I’ve had even better results by adding the flaxseed egg replacer. I like the simplicity of the recipe, especially being able to add the yeast to the flour. Another thing about your Complete Gluten-Free Cookbook that I really like is the Gluten-Free Pantry section. The use and storage instructions are really helpful, and the information blocks in the sidebars are very interesting. Thanks for your gluten-free cookbooks. They are a godsend.

— E. Hodges, Steinbach, Manitoba

We’ve been waiting for your new gluten-free cookbook, and are certain it will be as good and useful as your other three that we already have. We are always discovering new and delicious things to try, like the hamburger buns, the pear muffins and the very delicious Pear Almond Torte. Your books should be titled The Joy of Gluten-Free Cooking.

— Adele Simonetta and Melissa Simonetta Paglialunga, Richmond Hill, Ontario

I made the Mock Pumpernickel Loaf. I can honestly tell you this is the best loaf ever. My husband, who is not a celiac, tried a piece and said it reminds him of bread we could buy in England, which was a malt loaf. I have never found any bread here that remotely resembled it. Thank you so much for the great recipes and for your help.

— J. McArthur, western Canada

Last week, I made your Ciabatta, and we all love it. In fact, I have made three more since then, two of those today. My daughter and I (both celiac) now look forward to lunch — both making it and eating it. Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into your recipes. Recently, I was asked to bring an appetizer to a neighborhood party. I made pear pizza using your Plain Pizza Crust. It was a tremendous hit. One lady asked me specifically about the crust. She said it was so delicious, yet different from other pizza crusts. I love it when wheat eaters like my GF product as much as a wheat product — or in this case, even better!

— C. Sullivan, Ottawa, Ontario

Donna and Heather’s cookbooks are a great addition to the Specialty Food Shop! I do not hesitate to recommend them to customers looking for quality gluten-free cookbooks that offer appetizing and nutritious recipes.

— Cristina Cicco, RD, Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Ontario



Praise for The Best Gluten-Free Family Cookbook & 125 Best Gluten-Free Recipes:

I recently attended a fabulous gluten-free workshop given by Donna and Heather. They spoke joyfully of the hours upon hours spent in their test kitchen finding the most delicious ways to incorporate nutritious flours into their recipes. Full of practical information in addition to the recipes, this cookbook can serve as an excellent resource for any GF home cook.

— Amy E. Pagano, MS, RD, Outpatient Nutritionist, University of Virginia Health System


Thanks for the time and effort you’ve put into these cookbooks. I love cooking and baking and was ‘thrown for a loop’ when my daughter was diagnosed with celiac disease. Now I’m ‘relearning’ how to cook (I feel semi-panicky not having my old, trusted recipes to fall back on and haven’t ventured far enough to try and make them over in a gluten-free variation), and your cookbooks are making that learning process enjoyable and not terrifying!

— Shelley Conway, Newberry Springs, California


I made your Strawberry Rhubarb Pie this weekend. It is so melt-in-the-mouth good! My husband, not a celiac, just can’t get enough of it. It was the first of your recipes I attempted after hearing you speak at one of our meetings. I’ve had no failures, and everything is so tasty.

— Sheila Green, member, London Chapter, Canadian Celiac Association


I called my neighbor over to taste the Mediterranean Pizza Squares since he’s a chef at a health food store. He thought it was great, and his wife said it was the best pizza she had ever eaten!

— Judy Hodges, Richmond, Virginia


I have had the most success when using the Washburn and Butt cookbooks. I especially like their bread machine recipes — always tasty. Henk’s Flax Bread tastes like whole wheat bread. I can’t recommend this book enough for beginners. And besides the bread recipes, there are loads of recipes for all kinds of meals you can make for the entire family.

— R. Stanhope, Boston, Massachusetts



I was absolutely delighted with the gluten-free Ciabatta recipe. For the first time since my diagnosis, I actually was able to have sandwiches for lunch — it was fabulous! I also made the gluten-free Greek Pasta Salad this week for lunch, and my officemate complained that it smelled ‘too good.’ Just want to give you a ‘job well done.’

— Rebecca Goyan, Kingston, Ontario


How nice to be able to send chocolate chip cookies to a school bake sale. Or serve up pizza and chocolate cake for my 11-year-old daughter’s birthday party. The gluten-eating family members are enjoying the GF foods as well, and don’t even realize the difference until I tell them. Oh, and the pastry recipe! . . . Thanks so much for all the work that goes into creating, testing and retesting these recipes.

—Kae Moore, Port Hope, Ontario




Praise for 125 Best Gluten-Free Recipes:

Donna and Heather use healthy grains such as whole bean, flaxseed, amaranth, quinoa, rice bran and a variety of seeds and nuts in many of their recipes. They have made their recipes more nutritious by limiting the salt, sugar and fat, while using fresh fruits, vegetables and juices. Make sure you add this book to your collection of gluten-free resources!

— Shelley Case, B.Sc, RD, consulting dietitian and author of Gluten-Free Diet: A Comprehensive Resource Guide


With this gluten-free cookbook and a little patience and practice, anyone can master the art of cooking gluten-free.

— Mavis Malloy, RDN, dietitian, member of the Professional Advisory Board, Canadian Celiac Association


We are so excited about the research you have done for us on gluten-free starches and flours. The information on the newer gluten-free flours along with your recipes will be an invaluable tool for parents of celiacs and our dietitians.

— Rochelle Yeo, RD, and Rhonda Karas-Chartrand, RD, Stollery Children’s Hospital, Edmonton, Alberta


I made the Chocolate Fudge Cake (on front cover) for my daughter-in-law’s birthday (we are both celiacs) and it was by far the BEST gluten-free cake either of us has ever eaten. Six others who are not celiacs also ate the cake and loved it.

— Juanita A. Ohanian, Celiac Sprue Support Group, Rockville, Maryland


A great find — so informative, some excellent tips, good variety. Seems Donna and Heather have done their homework on gluten-free cooking. I was really impressed with this book.

— Janet, Maine


Thanks a million times over for your wonderful cookbook. Thanks to your cookbook, we are eating foods that are like normal foods again. I have tried other gluten-free cookbooks and yours is the best by far!
