Other highlights: Nicole Spiridakis has accomplished a feat of culinary legerdemain with this cookbook. Using ingredients like whipped egg whites, ground nuts, cornstarch, and rolled oats, she has created recipes for gluten-free fluffy cakes, chewy cookies, and crumbly bars — without a speck of gluten-free flour mix or xanthan gum to be seen. In fact, most of these recipes could be made with just the ingredients I have right now in my pantry, making one of these gluten-free treats an easy and oh-so-tempting possibility.
