May Birthday Giveaway: Gluten-free Girl and the Chef

gluten-free girl and the chef

What’s going on here? My site started ten years ago this month and to celebrate I’m giving away something each weekday. Because I like you.

Today I’ve got a copy of Gluten-free Girl and the Chef to give away, it was written by Shauna and Danny Ahern who do the site titled, you’ve perhaps guessed, Gluten-free Girl and the Chef. I talked about Shauna’s first book a few years back when I spent the day being gluten-free and discovered gluten is everywhere, including my toothpaste and my hair product. At the time I met Shauna I knew one person who had celiac, and since then I’ve met many more. It seems like every one of those I’ve met has gone through a struggle with what they cannot eat anymore and this is where Shauna comes in, she is a generous, happy, glowing soul who focuses instead on all the goodness one can uncover while eating gluten-free and she shares that. This book was written after she married Danny, the chef in the title (and one awesome guy, if I may say so), and the book covers a love story (romantic sigh) and lots of recipes and beautiful inspiring photos.

Do you live gluten-free or know somebody who does? Then this book is one you’ll want. To enter please leave a comment with this entry and, if you’d like something to talk about (I love reading all the stories!), here is a question to answer: Do you know somebody with celiac? I’ll go first: When I was living in San Francisco I learned about the disease from a co-worker who had been diagnosed earlier that year, it was completely new to me. Now it seems that a startling number of people I know have celiac. Alright, you’ve got until Thursday, May 26th at 10 a.m. PST to enter, the fine print applies and as always good luck! Closed, thank you for entering!

    whether you have celiac or are just gluten-intolerant, this is the BEST GF blog i have ever found. gluten isn’t really necessary for any of us, so getting hip to cooking without it is just a cool thing!

    Yes, I do know someone who can no longer eat anything with gluten in it. It’s fantastic that someone has created a cookbook to expand their restricted options. I think anyone could benefit from going gluten-free once in a while or even more often.

    I’m beginning to wonder if I’m celiac. I don’t know anyone who has been diagnosed. I know I have a serious, disabling case of fibromyalgia (I almost typed malaria good ol’ fibromyalgia brain fog minute!) and I’ll try anything to help the relentless pain.

    What tests do I need to take? I will look around your blog and see if I can find the information.

    My roommate is currently being tested to see if she has celiac disease! She’s been having lots of problems with the foods she eats so she’s trying a gluten free diet.

    Great give-away! My little brother, my roommate and my aunt are all sensitive to gluten, and we try to cook as gluten free as possible. But I’d really love to get more creative than rice and quinoa in the place of pasta and toast. Help please!?

    I love her blog, and would love the recipe book so I can cook for all my GF friends!

    I’ve been wanting this book! My five year old son has Celiac disease, and I’ve been struggling with gluten for a year now. I think I’m winning. But gluten is EVERYWHERE!

    My best friend Brista is highly allergic to gluten…she would love this book!
