Gluten-free on a Shoestring is an average book. The book includes 125 recipes and hardly any pictures in it. A majority of the recipes have way too many steps in it, and I am afraid that if I miss out even a single step, the recipe would be a disaster. I have to say that some f the recipes sound great like spinach pie, etc. but the proof of the pudding is in eating it and I have not gathered enough courage to make the pudding. Maybe someday I would and then would update my review.
