• Other highlights: "Going gluten-free" is a phrase that has gone through many permutations of meaning and significance in the last handful of years, from the despair of the former gluten-lover diagnosed with Celiac disease to the perky enthusiasm of a celebrity endorsing a trendy diet. With a single sweep of her spatula, Erin Scott bypasses all this and sets her own definition. "Going gluten-free" is neither a prison sentence nor a magic diet bullet — it's an opportunity to cook and eat foods that you love.
Granted, if you've been diagnosed with Celiac disease, as Erin was back in 2010, the foods you love might need some shifting, but Erin is confident that the deliciousness of real foods — not fake gluten-free products — will more than make up for the foods you miss. And it's true — as I page through the recipes in Yummy Supper, I forget that this is, technically, a gluten-free cookbook. The recipes just sound good: simple everyday meals made with fresh ingredients and plenty of flavor. Who wouldn't be on board with that?
