For the past few weeks, Danny and I have been in the kitchen, listening to the oil in the cast-iron skillet splatter on the stove, taking notes, and writing revisions on our recipe forms. We’re deep in the process of testing recipes for our next cookbook, American Classics Reinvented.
So many of you have written to tell us how much you love our latest cookbook, Gluten-Free Girl Every Day. Thank you. Thank you for making the four-onion soup, the sushi rice with edamame and miso-maple ginger dressing, the zucchini noodles with spinach pesto, the chickpea vegetable stew with brown basmati rice, the pork tenderloin stuffed with chorizo, the biscuits with sausage gravy, shrimp and bok choy stir fry, the chicken and dumplings, and the teff chocolate chip cookies. I love receiving emails that say, “I’ve been scared of making pie crust my entire life. But my husband so loves pie, and he can’t eat gluten, so I decided to face my fear and try it. I made your apple pie recipe in your latest cookbook and gave it to my husband. He cried. He said it was the best apple pie he has ever eaten. Thank you, Shauna and Danny.”
And that is why we do this work. Truly.
Fact is, we started working on our next cookbook, American Classics Reinvented, months before our latest cookbook, Gluten-Free Girl Every Day was released. We should have been telling you about our latest cookbook, Gluten-Free Girl Every Day, every day, for months, reminding you that it’s out there. We’ve been so busy making the very best gluten-free chicken-fried steak we can for you that we’re just not able to promote our last book the way it deserves. But we’re happy to say that the book has almost been selling itself. Did you know that it’s in every Target in America? This feels like gluten-free is slowly being more accepted in mainstream culture.
(However, we’d love if you could spread the word for us about our latest cookbook, Gluten-Free Girl Every Day. The holidays are coming up, of course. If you have been enjoying the book, could you make it your project to tell your people about it? After all, if you support our work by buying our books, we can create more cookbooks for you. Thank you.)
This was a fun day, when we bought a bit of four different kinds of steaks, trying to determine which one makes the best chicken-fried steak. There was no question. It’s the cheapest one —— cube steak —— all the way.
This is what we do for you.
