  3. My husband has dermatitis herpetiformist and has just recently had to stop taking the meds for it due to possible liver damage from it. I was just diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease. This would make it so much easier to transition to a gluten free lifestyle so we both can be healthier for our girls.

  4. I have an autoimmune disease & my Dr has decided that I need to be gluten, dairy & egg free. I have been doing this since Dec and am getting tired of the same old things I need to learn some tricks to make dinner less boring and I have never been a good cook to begin with. Now with the restrictions I am eating plain salads, veggies & chicken I need to know how to make new things.

  5. I read your emails, posts on Facebook, Pinterest and looking for new recipes to substitute some of my favorite foods.

  6. My youngest daughter was just diagnosed with Celiac’s disease and this cookbook would help as we begin our journey down thw GF road.

  7. I am recently diagnosed and am working on getting gluten free. I so badly need a recipe book. It would be amazing to win. Thanks for the opportunity.r

  8. I am entering to win cookbook because being gluten free and learning how to cook after 50 yrs of eating gluten it is very challenging. I research and look for recipes and a cookbook would make it much easier. It seems everyone in my family including grandchildren seems to be intolerant and I’m trying to help everyone to eat gluten free.

I entered by doing #1 (comment), #2 (liked facebook page), #4 & #5 (twitter follows), #7 & #8 (pinterest boards – luv ’em!), #10 & #11 (google+ follows – “gluten-free”), #13 (newsletter sign-up), gave you “klout” (in food, recipes, food allergies, & baking), and subscribed to you on youtube. Oh, and I pinned some of your pins onto my boards, also.

    Thanks for the opportunity/chance to obtain your new cookbook!

  13. I would really like to win this cookbook because, although I cook pretty simply for myself, I sorely need some ideas of what to make when I invite others over for a meal. In other words, I’d like to make something special which I can eat (being a celiac) and also serve with confidence to my guests!

  14. I’d love to win this cookbook. I have been trying to take a GF dish to every potluck and get-together, and it has been great to have others come up and say “I didn’t know I could make my own recipes.”

  18. I have been gluten free for about a year after being diagnosed with Celiac Disease. I have tried a variety of gluten-free products that are sold in the stores, but would prefer to make my own healthier gluten-free foods. The cookbook would help me accomplish that and give me more ideas on what to prepare for meals :)

  19. I’ve been cooking gluten-free for my daughter about a year and a half and am starting a cookbook collection for her

  20. I decided to go gluten & dairy free to help treat CKD, caused by what my dr says is an unknown autoimmune disorder, I’ve had lots of tests too. I could really use more recipes as this is a new world to me.

    “Damn, I already signed up for Rudi’s newsletter MONTHS ago so that obviously doesn’t count, and I have nothing in the social media outlet. This better be a lucky entry!”

  22. I’m in college, and am in DIRE NEED of new and fresh ideas on what to cook! Being GF/DF/EF, this poses as quite the challenge. I have a whopping one cookbook, but I had to leave it am home because I had no room to bring it when I was moving back into my dorm. I’ve been stumped, so this would be a lifesaver! LITERALLY, I mean, you need to eat to live, right?

  23. I found out 6 years ago that I was allergic to 6 food items with wheat the highest. So besides allergy shots. Eating gluten free makes my health problems controllable!! Cooking and baking gluten free have been a challenge and the cookbook would add new color to my life.

    Glad to find the free recipes. I‚Äôm mixing up some of your ‚ÄúFlour Blends‚ÄĚ, trying to improve and convert my recipes.

  24. I love cook books, and have a bunch. Diagnosed with Celiac Disease late January of this year, and starting over… I can’t believe the foods I have been finding gluten in. I need to go back to cooking from scratch!

  25. My 11 year old daughter has a connective tissue disorder called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and it causes chronic pain in so many parts of her body. We have discussed trying gluten free to see if it may help losses the inflammation and pain her body deals with. This would be an amazing start for us!

  26. I shared on my facebook since I have a few friends that are gluten free, and they too need recipes!

  27. I found out I was allergic to wheat over 20 years ago. Back then it was quite difficult to find good recipes. I am now thrilled when I find new cookbooks with delicious recipes to try and share!

  28. One of my children has a health issue that may be helped by eating gluten-free & low(er) carbohydrates. I also have food allergies and remember how much better I felt with less gluten and some other foods eliminated from my diet. Variety seems key!

  29. This cookbook looks like it would fit so many needs esp since I am at a 101 level. I’m hoping to learn & prepare nourishment that will help me feel better & be healthier.
    I am on Dbl & do not have discretionary funds to purchase this even though it is reasonably priced.
    I would be most grateful for your help.
    I would also like to share with the many others looking to learn & live healthier but simply do not have the funds… I’d serve them food samples to further their motivation.
    Thank you for any considerations
