It’s not often that I come across a cookbook with completely new ideas. It seems everything has been done in one way or another.
But Cooking for Isaiah is different. Silvana Nardone, author of Dish Towel Diaries, shares unique, creative, & delicious ways to feed families without gluten or dairy. These recipes are her solution for nourishing an entire family after finding out that her son, Isaiah, was sensitive to gluten and dairy.
There’s nothing long or complicated about her recipes – no difficult yeasted breads yet she has a wealth of sandwiches. No long prep work yet her recipes are brimming with flavor.
And, on every page you can plainly see a mother’s love.
On one page, you see her love in a creative breakfast that any kid (or adult) would love to eat. The next page you see her love through a picture of her laughing with her children. Flip a few more pages and you find her love in a sandwich that would evoke the deepest lunch box envy – even if I packed it for my husband.
Then there’s Isaiah – vibrant, healthy, and fully alive. Recipe after recipe, picture after picture, Cooking for Isaiah tells a story of how one family lives an exceedingly normal life while eating incredible food – gluten-free.
My loaf of Banana Bread using Silvana’s Recipe
I couldn’t help but feel an emotional tug. My gratitude for her work filled my heart – she’s helping to show the world that eating gluten-free is no different than eating wheat. It just requires a different frame of reference.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, snack time, birthdays – it’s all here. Kid-friendly and adult worthy.
Which is why I fell so strongly about sharing this book with you, and why I’m giving one away.
I made her banana bread with my sorghum-garfava mix. It was one of the best banana breads I’ve ever had. Moist, tender, and stunningly gorgeous it was hard to eat just one piece. So I didn’t. I ate a few. Silvana’s banana bread was so good I shared it with friends I had dinner with later that night. They loved it just as much as I did.
Sliced and Ready to Eat
Yes, she uses white sugar. Of course, I can’t. I easily substituted palm sugar. Most of her recipes don’t require sugar at all.
There’s truly something in here for everyone – gluten-free or not.
