Today I had gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, nut-free, egg-free Twinkie lookalikes show up at my front door, courtesy of Elisabeth Gordon. The recipe for these little beauties is in her new book The Complete Allergy-Free Comfort Foods Cookbook.
(Note: I recognize that health issues that respond to a gluten-free diet are not necessarily related to a gluten “allergy”. However, many of us that are gluten-free due to celiac disease do have other food intolerances.)
Have you met Elizabeth Gordon yet? No? Let me introduce you.
I met Elizabeth a few years ago when she dropped off some of her Betsy & Claude brand gluten-free cookies at my office job in midtown Manhattan. (Sorry, I don’t think I ever told you about them, but the packaging was totally eco-friendly adorable and the gingersnap cookies were to-die-for. These little babies were even featured on Rachel Ray as Snack Of The Day.)
Elizabeth gave up the hectic cookie company life in order to pursue writing allergy-friendly cookbooks. Her first book is titled Allergy-Free Desserts and now her latest creation is The Complete Allergy-Free Comfort Foods Cookbook.
Here’s the super hip book trailer.
I love her style. And how cute is her family?!
