Testimonials

I have tried a variety of recipes from this cookbook. As an Iowan farmer, I am used to good hearty food. Every recipe I’ve tried tastes like good “Down Home” food. I especially like the Minestrone Soup – It’s a winner!

Ron McLaughlin Grain Farmer

Chocolate Chip and Ginger Cookies by Phyllis are delicious. They're sweet and taste just like the cookies my grandma used to make. A party favorite and you feel so good eating them since they're gluten free. Tops of my list!

Allison BarberlaCollege Student, University of Northern Iowa

The Cream Puffs are absolutely delicious! The combination of the flakey pastry and the smooth cream filling drizzled with the chocolate is mouth-watering perfect!! They are one of a kind and truly amazing!

Gumbo tastes as incredible as the original - who knew gluten free recipes could stay so true to the authentic look, consistency and Cajun flavor!

Chad PotratzMeat Specialist University Ave. HyVee Supermaket

Nothing reminds me more of Florida and our time in the Sunshine State than Key Lime Pie - so I was amazed that a gluten free recipe could pass the test. I actually prefer this recipe to the original! I shared it with friends and family without divulging it's secret - and they thought it was amazing! Definitely a keeper!
