Review on Skinny Mom’s Kitchen: “Not Your Mother’s Make-Ahead and Freeze Cookbook is a wonderful cookbook filled with delicious family friendly recipes.

Lisa Irvine reviewed the book for Stephanie O’Dea‘s website: “What I really like about this book, is that even though it is not a gluten-free cookbook, there are MANY recipes that are naturally gluten-free or can be easily converted using gluten-free ingredients.  She even has a section listing all of the naturally gluten-free recipes in her book.  I really appreciate that she took the time to do that!” Read the full review here.
