Even More Delightfully Free is Here!

I am so excited to announce that my second cookbook, Even More Delightfully Free, has arrived.
Here it is--or at least the front and back covers: 

Front & back covers of Even More Delightfully Free

But let me tell you a little about the book that I spent most of my 2015 developing and producing. Even More Delightfully Free is just that--more of the original Delightfully Free. It has 166 new recipes, 135 of which are grain free. Every recipe in the book is 100% free of gluten, dairy, refined sugar, soy, corn, yeast, oats, peanuts, dye and artificial sweeteners. I took Delightfully Free a couple steps further and, wow, am I thrilled about the result. I think you will be too!!

As with my first book and now Even More with this new one, my goal has been to use the healthiest, most nutritious, smartest ingredients, remove as many undesirable components as possible and create delicious new versions of everything from breakfast to dinner, including desserts, snacks and holiday favorites.

You'll enjoy breads, muffins and cakes that are grain free. "Potato" Soup that is potato free. Spaghetti with Meatballs that is tomato free. Four pages of new salad dressings, including vinegar-free selections. "Peanut butter" cake and cookies that are peanut free. All of this can be accomplished by substituting a nutritious, better food for the problematic one traditionally used. So, pizza crust, potato salad and white rice (in say Chinese fried rice) is replaced by cauliflower or cauliflower "rice." Cream cheese, whipped cream and cheesecake are clean and guilt-free by using cashews ending up with amazingly similar taste and texture. Pancakes and waffles you could swear are just like the ones you used to love are grain free and what's more, completely nutritious by making them out of white beans. And the list goes on.

Even More Delightfully Free is the perfect bookend to Delightfully Free in the kitchen. It, like the original, is a hardback with a hidden spiral, printed on 100 Lb glossy paper with a full color photos for nearly every recipe. Also, at the front of the book you will find an updated "Stocking Your GF, DF, SF Pantry."

If you want to purchase Even More Delightfully Free and send a copy to a family member or friend, then I have a special place in my heart for you and would like to offer you 10% off any additional copies of Delightfully Free or Even More Delightfully Free you purchase. So, if you want to buy more than one copy, please call me instead of using our online store. That way I can give you 10% off additional copies of either book and thank you personally for sharing my books with your family and friends. The number to call is 714-281-2492.

Wishing you health & Joy, ~ Tracy

My 2nd Book is Almost Here!

After publishing the original Delightfully Free and over the process of selling more than 12,000 copies, I continued to create more recipes, constantly aiming to make them even more delicious, nutritious and free of as many common food allergens as possible. Of course, before long, I knew I wanted to share them in a second book.

So, a large part of my 2015 was consumed with creating, photographing and writing my second book, proudly entitled Even More Delightfully Free:

Delightfully Free is in Santa's Kitchen

Delightfully Free, the cookbook of recipes that are all free of gluten, dairy, refined sugar and yeast, is actually a big favorite with this wonderful Santa:


Here's the story. This Santa who entertains kids and adults alike at the Sugar Plum Arts & Crafts Shows in Southern California is also known for cooking healthy. In fact, last year when I first got to know him, the event organizer gave him a copy of Delightfully Free signed by all the vendors  because it became know that the book was on his Christmas list:

Here's Santa with his copy of Delightfully Free given him last year:



So, after a year enjoying Delightfully Free, Santa assured me this year that I'm definitely on his Nice List.

Now is the time for thinking about sending a copy of Delightfully Free to anyone on your list who is interested in healthy eating--or maybe should be ; ).

Delightfully Free makes a meaningful gift:



 
Not only are the recipes creatively delicious and nutritious, but the book itself is beautiful. It is a hardback with a hidden, functional spiral printed on glossy 100 lb paper and packed with full color photographs for nearly every recipe.

You can order it exclusively on this website and we can have it in time for Christmas to most locations in the United States if you order in the next few days.  Delightfully Free contains 141 recipes ranging from breakfast, lunch & dinner to soups, salads, snacks, treats & desserts. All but one recipe are also soy free. Delightfully Free has 114 vegetarian or vegetarian compatible recipes and 103 vegan or vegan compatible recipes.

Wishing you health & Joy, and a very Merry Christmas, ~ Tracy
