The Organic Gluten-Free Giveaway!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN, EVERYONE! Have I got a treat for you !!!

Do you have or know someone who suffers from a gluten allergy?

As someone on a strict salt-free diet, I am intimately familiar with the concept of “living without.”  So when Leslie Cerier, the Organic Gourmet, asked whether I’d be interested in reviewing her latest cookbook, Gluten-Free Recipes for the Conscious Cook, I agreed without hesitation. I’m so glad I did!

Those yummy corn muffins above are further proof that making health a priority isn’t a sacrifice when you’re well fed. Sweet and moist, with a crumbly corn chew, they’re just like “regular” corn muffins – but better! And they’re only one of many amazing recipes from Leslie’s book.

Gluten-Free Recipes for the Conscious Cook focuses on seasonal, vegetarian fare, offering not only variations on traditional favorites but some fabulously creative combinations you’ll be dying to try. From Candied Yams with Pecans, to Nori Rolls with Gingered Tofu, to Chocolate Mousse Pie in a Hazelnut Crust, you’ll have dozens of ideas for everyday meals as well as the upcoming holidays. And beyond recipes, Leslie offers a course in gluten-free grains, devoting two whole chapters to their description and preparation. I’ve been cooking for years and still managed to learn a thing or two. Thank you, Leslie!

I’m thrilled to offer a free copy of Gluten-Free Recipes for the Conscious Cook to one lucky winner!

BUT THERE’S MORE. Because with any new cookbook, there’s often a need for new products. That’s why I’m offering not only Leslie’s book, but a prize pack of gluten-free staples – valued at $50!

Two-pound packages of: Nature’s Earthly Choice Premium Organic Quinoa. Arrowhead Mills Organic Brown Rice Flour. Lundberg Organic Brown Basmati Rice. And in addition, a jumbo 29-oz. jar of Organic Extra-Virgin Coconut Oil from Nutiva.

To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment below letting me know you’d like to win.

Entries will be accepted now through through Friday, November 4, 2011 and the lucky winner will be selected and announced here on Saturday, November 5th.

This giveaway is open to everyone, no residency restrictions. Best of luck!

    What a great giveaway! I love that the prize is the cookbook and some essential ingredients. How smart. I follow you on twitter (@dacialee33) and on FB (Dacia Lee). Thanks!

  2. Robyn Jones says:

    I would love to win! That’s so awesome that you are doing this! I have several friends that are gluten free, I am always wanting to make goodies for them (because I love each one of them dearly), but I haven’t really learned about gluten free cooking yet. I do know how to cook a mean batch of gluten free peanut butter cookies though! But I would like to have one of them over for dinner so I know this book would help me! I liked your page on facebook, my name is Robyn Jones:) I hope I win!!!!

  3. Love your neat bird background! I’m glutenful and wouldn’t want to take away such a great giveaway from someone who could really use it, so good luck to everyone else!

  4. Dianne says:

    Would love to share your giveaway with my very dear friend who has celiac disease. You are so kind to share!!! I’m a stalker follower…lol on Facebook!!! Dianne Tine : )

  5. Amber says:

    Those cron muffins look great. I tried tweaking my favorite cornbread recipe to be salt free-ish, and it didn’t work out. Plus I’m a vegetarian so this would broaden our food horizons even more.

  6. Debra Elmore says:

    What a great give-away! And just in time for Christmas! This would be a great gift for my sister who is gluten-free. Thanks!

  7. I’m not totally gluten free, but I am trying to eat an anti-inflammatory diet, which is like, gluten-light – or, nearly gluten free, so I’d love to win this!

  8. HF says:

    Fabulous giveaway! I’d like to win because I cook with restrictions – not just for me, but for family members – and furthermore, I always love new recipes! This might help my challenge go on for several years… 🙂

  9. i’m a gluten fiend, so like katie, i don’t want to take from someone who would really benefit. that said, i recently cooked for a gluten free, vegan friend– brownies–and while they were interesting (and expensive) to make, i didn’t really like them. i think it may have been the recipe, though. what a great giveaway–the cookbook sounds perfect for those living a gluten free life–also, the freebies are great! i’m still waiting on that Daily Dish LO-SO cookbook, btw. xo

    Hi Christie. I suffer from both Meniere’s Disease and a gluten allergy. I follow a strict lo-sodium, gluten free diet. I’ve been following your blog for a few weeks now. It’s comforting to see another young person with Meniere’s disease. I developed Meniere’s at age 20 and it took me around 6 months to get diagnosed. A low sodium diet was actually something that came easily for me. After feeling so sick for so long, sodium was such an easy sacrifice to make if it meant feeling better.

    About a year ago I found out that I had a gluten allergy and I decided to go gluten-free. This dietary change has been much more challenging for me. Between low-salt and gluten-free I feel like my options are really limited and have made a habit of eating the same things over and over. I’m apathetic about food at this point of my life because I feel like I can’t eat anything I enjoy anymore. I’d love to win because I could really use some tools to teach me how enjoy food again.

    I have a nephew whose child has juvenile diabetes AND celiac. I also have a friend whose mother-in-law and a grandchild have celiac disease so I’d love to win it. But besides that, I think we could all benefit from a gluten-free diet and I do prepare gluten free dishes when I find good ones. I also follow you on Twitter as @razzmatazlady.

  12. Terri says:

    Christie, this is a great idea and it sounds like a great book! In addition to maintaining a low-sodium diet, I am also gluten-free and it is certainly a challenge finding things to eat. My teenage son is in the midst of testing for celiac as well (diagnosis soon, we hope) so now that there are quite likely two of us who will be eating gluten-free, I’m looking for new recipes to try. It’s like learning to cook (and bake!) all over again…gf flours behave very differently than traditional flours. Oh, and I also follow you on FB (Terri Tremblett) Thanks for all of your great recipes, as always! You rock. 🙂

  13. Catherine Agnes Roebuck says:

    I’d love to win! I have been gluten-free for years but feel like I’m still learning to cook this way.

    I follow The Daily Dish on facebook.

  15. Alison B. G. says:

    I am gluten intolerant. It’s really hard to live without among people who do not, let alone cook for them. It would be great to have a arsenal of great recipes that everyone would love.

  16. Theresa says:

    Hey Christy! This looks like a great prize! The book looks wonderful and the staples are a great bonus!!!

    I’d love to win. Hurrah for coconut oil!

  18. Tammy says:

    Congrats on being asked to review her cookbook, it looks awesome! Candied yams with pecans…YUM! I don’t have a gluten allergy, but I am vegetarian. Plus, I love Bob’s Red Mill products. Thanks for putting together this giveaway.
