Danielle Walker's Against All Grain Celebrations (Book Review)

*Disclosure of material connection- I received a copy of the book from the publisher via Blogging For Books in exchange for my honest thoughts. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions stated are 100% my own. 

My family and I have only recently made the transition to a gluten free lifestyle to support my daughter in the way she needs to eat. I find that I have been feeling better and on the off chance that I am bad and eat food that does contain gluten I have noticed I feel awful afterwards. It is pretty easy to stay gluten free at home, but I have been dreading the upcoming holidays because I wasn't sure where to even start as far as holiday cooking. I am pretty sure Against All Grain Celebrations is the holy grail of gluten free cooking. There are menus for every holiday and special occasion you can possibly think of. The book is set up to be "a year of celebrations" so it starts with New Year's Eve and ends with Christmas. It includes every holiday in between, as well as birthday parties and baby showers and other get togethers where you need to have food. Although these recipes are meant for special occasions and holidays, I can see myself making them throughout the year just on a regular night because they sound fantastic. There doesn't seem to be a bad recipe in the book! There are tons of great cake, frosting, pie, and cookie recipes for the holidays I can't wait to try and also many great drinks and food recipes that even someone not used to eating gluten free would be impressed by. This will definitely be a go-to cookbook for me, holidays or not. I highly recommend it to anyone wanted to impress with great recipes!
