After years of low energy and a tendency to fall ill, Shauna James Ahern was diagnosed with celiac disease. With the help of her chef husband, Danny, Shauna went on a mission to create an amazing wealth of dinner, drink and dessert recipes—all without a hint of gluten. For those with celiac, the blog is a lifesaver; for everyone else, it's a collection of seasonal, simple and delectable recipes.
"Smoking the tomatoes first adds a depth of flavor that isn't possible with raw tomatoes. The smokiness mingles with the heat of the chili, the onions and cilantro add more flavor, and letting it all mingle in a salsa for a few hours creates a desperate need for tortilla chips! While we're waiting for the ribs on the grill, we can sit around and eat this and remember how lucky we are to have summer." —Shauna James Ahern, Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef
