gift guide: for your gluten free friend
1. The Intolerant Gourmet: Glorious Food Without Gluten and Lactose: Amazon, $20.79
I dont' cook that much, so I haven't really researched Gluten-Free cookbooks, but this one was recommended by the Today Show, and I feel like the usually know their stuff.
2. Mariposa E-Gift Card: Mariposa, Prices Vary.
So your Gluten-challenged friend can have a little treat even after christmas.
3. Gluten Free Blondies: Tate's Bake Shop, $27
I love Tate's cookies, so I'm guessing these are also delicious. Plus, they come in that lovely little box.
4. Endangered Species Milk Chocolate with Cherries, Amazon, $33.48 for a pack of 12.
This chocolate is delicious. I especially like how it's got the chewy cherries in it. If you don't' need to order a whole dozen, you can also find this chocolate at Whole Foods.
5. Enjoy Life Soft Bake Cookies Double Chocolate Brownie: Vitacost, $3.79
I picked up a box of these the other day at Publix, and I had finished the box before the next day. Admittedly, they're not as delicious as glutenous brownies, but they will certainly do in a pinch.
6. The G-Free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide: Amazon, $11.78
Whether you love Elizabeth Hasselbeck or hate her, she does have Celiac Disease, and the girl in my office who is helping me along my Gluten-Free way said this book taught her everything she knows. Get it, Elizabeth!
7. Gluten Free Labels: glutenfreelabels.com, $4.99
This is a great gift for anyone who goes to a lot of pot lucks or shares a kitchen with someone else.
8. Kyotofu Gluten-Free Pound Cakes Gift Box: Williams-Sonoma, $29.95
I just like cake. That's why this is on the list.
9. Bigfoot Eats Gluten Free Tee: Society 6, $22
I tried to look for normal-looking gluten-free tee shirts, but none of them seemed to capture my personal shame and apologetic feelings for being on such a weird, annoying diet. So instead of opting for a "proud to be gluten free" tee, I thought I'd go for something that at least had cute artwork. And here it is!
10. Baked Lentil Chips: Abes Market, $2.79
I used to eat these chips even before I went gluten free. They're just plain good. And, if you're not into ordering your chips online, you can always pick up a bag at whole foods. They're delicious. However, be forewarned: They are full of fiber.
Happy gluten-free shopping!
