On the bookshelf: Cooking for Isaiah: Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Recipes for Easy Delicious Meal. A second cookbook is in the works, and a digital gluten-free food & lifestyle magazine called Easy Eats will launch in the fall.
Why we’re fans: As a published cookbook author and former editor in chief of Every Day with Rachael Ray, Silvana has a lot of clout in the food industry. But she also is just a mom looking for good food to feed her kids. Her Mini Mac & Cheese Cakes were a hit among all age groups at Appetite for Awareness 2010, and recipes for important foods like birthday cake ensure that gluten-free families don’t miss out on life’s little (or big) celebrations.
Silvana’s Story: My now 14-year old son Isaiah was diagnosed as gluten intolerant 4 years ago, which changed the direction of our lives forever, like so many other families.
According to Silvana: The most unexpected part of going gluten-free was that Isaiah was open to trying so many new foods, which expanded his whole eating experience beyond his classic white foods diet.
