The essential cookbook for families living a gluten-free lifestyle on the go.
In her fourth gluten-free cookbook, Vanessa Weisbrod marries her love of gluten-free cooking with her family’s love of eating. With two young boys, Vanessa knows full well that children’s palates can be picky—and a gluten-free lifestyle adds an extra twist to that challenge. Thankfully, Vanessa shows us easy-to-make recipes for the busiest of families, offering techniques to encourage reluctant kids to eat healthy.
My Gluten-Free Family Kitchen is Vanessa’s comprehensive guide to living gluten-free. It’s filled with personal stories about raising a child with celiac disease, tips for little ones eager to assist in the big kitchen, and a collection of flavorful recipes that inspire kids and families to cook the food that will give them the strength, energy, and passion to accomplish anything their hearts and taste buds desire.
"Packed with such love and deliciousness, Vanessa Weisbrod has created another gluten-free winner, and a must for every family's kitchen!"
– Marilyn Geller, CEO, Celiac Disease Foundation
"Anyone who knows Vanessa also knows that she does this out of love for her community and also with the deep understanding of what it takes to be gluten-free. This book will inspire all family members to participate and enjoy the process of helping loved ones stay safe and gluten-free."

"Vanessa's recipes get kids and families into the kitchen together, while encouraging sharing with gluten-free and non-gluten-free friends and family. This book makes it easy to invite your friends and family (gluten-free or not) over for an undeniably delicious gluten-free meal. These recipes are kid AND whole-family friendly (trust me, I've tried a bunch) and help educate even the youngest children about their important dietary needs. Your kids will come away from using this book as strong self-advocates and inspired little chefs."
– Julie Lepore, Publisher, Macaroni Kids
"For years and years we gluten sufferers were stuck labeling foods as PGFGF or 'pretty good for gluten-free.' Our specialty foods were fine but they were seldom GOOD. Everything I've tried in My Gluten-Free Family Kitchen is just plain great, no qualifier needed. Whether it's Peach Blueberry Yogurt muffins or Chai Spiced Apple Bread for the newsroom, or the Lime Cilantro dressing or Thai Pumpkin and Apple Soup I made at home, my glutinous colleagues in the newsroom nor three kids at home never had a clue they were eating gluten-free. Fooling the people you love has never been so fun, or delicious."
– Dave Briggs, Co-host of CNN's "Early Start"
"Make room on your shelf for this recipe collection that sets a new standard for gluten-free cooking. Curated with love and attention to detail, these recipes taste even better than they look and will please the pickiest gluten-eaters and gluten-avoiders in your family."
– Dr. Jocelyn Silvester, MD, PhD, FRCPC, Director of Research for the Celiac Disease Program at Boston Children’s Hospital
