gluten-free-cheat-sheet-giveaway

I could be in your house.

Whoo-hooo! It’s a long weekend for those of us in the States (no offense to my UK friends, because we still have a special relationship) and I’m personally super stoked about that. So stoked, that on this final day of giveaways I’m going to be giving away not one copy of The Gluten-Free Cheat Sheet: Go Go-Free in 30 Days or Less, not two copies of The Gluten-Free Cheat Sheet: Go Go-Free in 30 Days or Less, but FIVE whole copies of The Gluten-Free Cheat Sheet: Go Go-Free in 30 Days or Less!!!!!!!

Damn. That’s a lot of mail.

But first, the winner of yesterday’s challenge!

It’s true, I was given the nickname “Dairy Queen” due to my huge love of dairy. It’s also true that I can’t love dairy so hard anymore, making the nickname all the more tragic. Several of you guessed this correctly, because you’re on it, and one name was drawn from my daughter’s Dodgers hat. Joel MW!

Here was his answer: “The Dairy Queen, which is better than Drama Queen, although maybe the bit where you put that guy in a headlock qualifies . . . ;-)”

Oh, dairy. You were my first love.

And now it’s time for the next wins, wherein you guys have to do one super easy thing.

Not that I don’t adore my friends who don’t cook. In fact, now that I think about it friends who DON’T cook can be much less judgmental when I’m serving up something hot out of the gluten-free oven. But that’s not what I’m talking about today! It is Day 2 of the giving away of The Gluten-Free Cheat Sheet: Go G-Free in 30 Days or Less. Hooray! But first, let’s see who won yesterday’s challenge.

5 Days of Giveaways: Gluten-Free for the Easily Offended

gfcheatsheetimgHey gang! At the end of this week those of us in the U.S.A. will be celebrating our independence from the United Kingdom. A fact that is hi-lar-ious to my 9-year-old anglophile who adores Harry Potter and can’t imagine anything going awry between our country and the UK due to our “special relationship.” But that’s not what I’m here to talk about, even though I’m fantasizing about sparklers and gluten-free cheeseburgers coming up ASAP.

This week is also the week where I give away copies of my brand new book, The Gluten-Free Cheat Sheet: Go G-Free in 30 Days or Less. I went with less, given my horrifying stomach pain and distress. But you do you.  Continue reading

The Gluten-Free Cheat Sheet is SO TOTALLY HERE

Betty White totally knows how to go g-free

Betty White totally knows how to go g-free

Oh hey, guys. So you know I wrote another book? It’s totally true. I WROTE ANOTHER BOOK AND PEOPLE ARE SELLING IT!

This is my second book so you may be asking “What else do you have to say, April? No, really?” Well, it’s interesting because I find myself picking up my own copy of this new book several times a week. Not because I’m checking for mistakes. (Oops! Be sure to add 1 cup of milk to that Parmesan Popover recipe, you guys!) But because I wrote 100 freaking recipes and I need to remind myself what I can make for dinner.

The Gluten-Free Cheat Sheet: Go G-Free in 30 Days or Less is super useful. Not that my first book was not. That book was ridiculously useful, especially when you were looking for curse words to describe your current gluten-free situation. But The GFCS is all about living your life day to day and trying to manage your meals.

I’ll be honest, working up 100 recipes was not easy. I was cooking like a gd maniac last year, and I even hired a super duper recipe developer to help me when I was like, “I just cannot get this granola right. I cannot.” The result being, 100 amazing recipes that you’ll want to use when you just cannot order from the vegan/raw take out place for one more night.

Here’s the even better news: Continue reading

Gluten-Free Los Angeles: Sugarfish

gluten-free-sushi-los-angelesYes, I realize I just complained in a big whiny way about not being able to eat out anymore, and wow, do you guys also have some stories!!! I’m feeling for all of us right now. Which is why I’m kind of digging this new way of thinking about dining out up in here. Up in my belly.

We all know you have to rely on your server, the chef, and anyone else who comes within spitting distance (nice visual, yes?) of your food. The more ingredients on your plate, the more opportunities for a lil’ gluten to slip in. Which is why I’m thinking when I dine out from now on, I minimize my chances of getting an extra serving of gluten in my meal by going simpleContinue reading
