I think SpiderHawk's dishes have more flavors than a lot of "traditional" cooking. I don't do it all the time but I like a lot of the "new to me " ideas she presents in Gluten Free and Glorious

Cookbook and source for healthy and vegetarian eating! I simply love all of Vila Spiderhawk's recipes and I have every one of her books!
For healthy eating this is the book to use. Vila is an awesome writer. All of her books are a must read.
One of my daughters has severe gluten intolerance, and cooking for her own needs while still making great meals for her family has been a challenge. One of the beauties of this cookbook is that although gluten free... it is tasty, simple, and a diet that all would enjoy.

A new cookbook written by a friend - gluten-free and (mostly) vegan, a plus for those who also have problems with lactose. Along with a lot of great recipes,
Vila's also included a lot of nutritional tidbits and information. A real bargain at only .99! We're trying the Asparagus, Mushroom and Penne in Lemon Sauce for supper tonight:)
— Donna Barney
You did a great job, Vila, this is even better than I had hoped. I just bought it and already have several recipes picked out to try:) I love all the nutritional tidbits and information you added, they really help when you're trying to balance such a crazy diet.

I can finally have bread that tastes like BREAD and cookies! A great cook book, everything you would need to eat healthy. And she looks up the nutritious stats for you. And you will learn to eat food to heal yourself instead of drugs and vitamins the way it is suppose to be. And don't forget to check out her other books too. She has other cook books and some fiction out that are all a work of art! Yes, I AM a great fan of Vila's and know her work well. You will do yourself a big favor by looking up her other works and best of all, they are all .99 you read it right, .99 each! She practices what she preaches, helping the economy and helping all of us that need to get healthy. Enjoy!

Okay, I admit it, I am not a huge fan of cookbooks. But there's a "but" coming here. BUT I have a serious sensitivity to grains containing gluten, so believe me,
I was so very glad when this book came out! First off, I have not had a good scone since before I developed this sensitivity. Can you imagine the nirvana I found
in her Cherry Almond scones? Divine! And I got to try the Irish Soda Bread just after St. Patrick's Day, but that's okay. The list goes on, and continues to go on
as I eat my gluten-free way through this cookbook.
Finally, delicious recipes that I can use!
Thank you, Vila SpiderHawk!

I just previewed a wonderful new cookbook by Vila SpiderHawk--Gluten Free and Glorious. I was skeptical at first, as I am no vegan, but Vila has shared some wonderful recipes with me, and I went in with an open mind.
I was blown away! Not only are the recipes absolutely delicious (yes I tried several!). I was amazed at the information shared on lots of herbs and natural ingredients. This book is a fantastic reference item along with easy to use and understand recipes! I was going to try and give a favorite recipe but I just can't pick one! I suggest you give this a read and you will be as impressed as I am!
