Cooking for Isaiah: A Mother's Recipe for Delicious Gluten- and Dairy-Free Meals

Silvana Nardone

Reader's Digest,  September 2010

Cooking for Isaiah is the story of Silvana Nardone's heartfelt journey to develop great-tasting meals for her son, Isaiah, after he was diagnosed with food intolerances to gluten and dairy. The results of her efforts are found throughout the pages of this book, with recipes that not only are easy to make but delicious, too.

From S'mores Pancakes with Marshmallow Sauce and Double-Decker Toasted Cornbread and Spicy Greens Stack to Chicken and Waffles with Maple Bacon Gravy and Chocolate Birthday Cake with Whipped Chocolate Frosting, all of the recipes in this charming, personal cookbook are entirely free of gluten and dairy. Better yet, they contain ingredients that were chosen not just for flavor but for performance: Cake is light and moist, pizza crust is tender and crisp, and gravy is rich and creamy.

If you or someone in your family is one of the 12 million Americans with food sensitivities, let Silvana guide you with her tried-and-tested all-purpose flour blend and pancake mix recipes, sure to make gluten-free cooking and baking easier -- and tastier -- than you'd ever think possible. What's more, the book's supermarket-friendly recipes are flexible and accessible to everyone. An ingredient substitution chart explains what to swap if, for example, you need to cook without gluten, but you eat dairy. Plus, Silvana recommends the basic ingredients and tools you'll want to keep on hand for fast, effortless cooking.

With Cooking for Isaiah, you'll be able to make food the way it should be: creamy, crispy and chewy -- just plain good food that tastes like home.

The recipes in this cookbook are flexible and accessible to everyone. You can cook up a recipe as is or substitute any ingredient to better fit your lifestyle. Since these recipes use mostly conventional ingredients straight from the supermarket, the substitution list is short.
