When Elana Amsterdam was diagnosed with celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder that keeps the body from processing gluten, she challenged herself to come up with gluten-free recipes that tasted just as good as their regular counterparts. With two gluten-free cookbooks under her belt—and a third, Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry, on sale next week—Elana has a little something for everyone. Find family favorites like pancakes and eggplant Parmesan in The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook, plus dozens of cupcake ideas in Gluten-Free Cupcakes.
You can buy your own copies of Elana’s gluten-free cookbooks or enter in the comments for a chance to win them. Just let us know, in the comments, which gluten-free flours you’ve baked with. The contest starts at 12:00 p.m. EST today, and ends on Friday, June 14 at 5 p.m. EST.
We’re giving away one copy each of Gluten-Free Cupcakes and The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook to five randomly-selected commenters. You must include your email address in the “Email” field when submitting your comment so we can communicate with you if you’re a winner.
You may only comment once to be considered and you don’t have to purchase anything to win; a purchase will not increase your chances of winning. Odds depend on total number of entries. Void where prohibited. Only open to legal residents of 50 U.S. states, D.C. or Puerto Rico, and you must be at least 18 to win. For the first day of the giveaway, all entries (answers) must be entered between 12:00 a.m. EST on June 12 and 5 p.m. EST on June 14, 2013. Subject to full official rules.
