On the bookshelf: Gluten-Free on a Shoestring: 125 Easy Recipes for Eating Well on the Cheap. Available wherever books are sold.

Why we’re fans: We like saving money (Who doesn’t?). We also like witty writing that’s easy-going even when xanthan gum is part of the mix. With Nicole’s blog, we get both. Her posts like “The Promise of Pita” are as entertaining as they are delicious, and the special page marked “Shoestring Savings” has oodles of links to coupons from some of your favorite gluten-free food manufacturers. Earlier this month, Nicole was featured in a news segment on ABC 7 in New York to promote her cookbook and put Celiac Awareness Month in the spotlight.

Nicole’s Story: My son Jonathan, who is now 7 years old, has celiac disease. We keep a gluten-free house, which includes me, my husband, and all of our 3 children eating gluten-free at home.

According to Nicole: The most unexpected part of going gluten-free was having it take me in the direction of cookbook author and food blogger, instead of practicing lawyer!

    HI Nicole,

    In your book, Gluten-Free on a Shoestring: 125 Easy Recipes for Eating Well on the Cheap, on page 152 you have a recipe for Apple Leek Sausage Corn Bread Stuffing Dinner. My mom, to whom I gave the book for Christmas, made that recipe and loved it. But she’s wondering about the last ingredient, two cups of chicken stock, and when it is supposed to go in. The recipe doesn’t say, so she improvised and put one cup in when cooking the apples, leeks, pepper and parsley. She put the second cup in after the tempered egg mixture. Do you recommend the order my mom improvised, or something different?

    Hi, Denise,

    There is an omission in that recipe in some of the earlier printings of the book. Please accept my apologies!
    There is a list of corrections on my blog that should clear everything up: http://glutenfreeonashoestring.com/book-corrections/
    It doesn’t matter much when you put in the stock, as long as you don’t leave it out, so please tell your mom that she did great — and that I apologize!

    xoxo Nicole
