This book is now a favorite - funny & intelligent ~ actually a wee bit snarky! Having just begun to go gluten-free (ugghh!) this book was a real relief. The healthy hostess cupcakes were fabulous (so said even the non-vegetarians and wheat eaters!), a wonderful friend made the chocolate chip cookies and everyone who got one wanted the recipe. These goodies are not health food, but a far cry above the usual and when we want/need something yummy ~ these recipes give us an option that isn't "smutty" :) Enjoy!
