In Gluten Free on a Budget, my mom and I really wanted to show that gluten-free can be delicious, divine and pleasing to all palates, whether gluten-free or not, without spending a fortune. We walk you through each and every aspect of living gluten-free from finding the right support, packing lunches and recipes for all occasions to stocking your pantry and everything in between. Mouthwatering recipes like from scratch Poppyseed Cake, Banana Black Bottom Pie and Flaky Pot Pie will have you jumping for joy that you can feed your family gluten-free while saving some “dough”
But don’t just take our word for it. Here are some reviews that we have felt so blessed and honored to receive from such highly regarded people in the gluten-free community.

We are also so thankful to team at Cedar Fort Publishing for believing in our vision and helping to make it come to life in this book.

“When folks learn they have to eat gluten-free, they often think they must reinvent their eating entirely. But it’s just not true! Gluten-Free on a Budget reminds us that habits such as buying in bulk, baking at home and striving to eat more natural, whole foods, are good rules of thumb whether you’re gluten-free or not. Chandice and Tana do a great job of demystifying the gluten-free diet with easy tips like these, and also share the home-style recipes you’ve been craving, made in delicious new gluten-free ways.”~Jules Shepard, gfJules.com Author of Free for All Cooking: 150 Easy Gluten-Free, Allergy-Friendly Recipes the Whole Family can Enjoy; The First Year: Celiac Disease and Living Gluten Free; andNearly Normal Cooking for Gluten-Free Eating
“Gluten-free foods are more available and tastier than ever before. Despite the vast improvements in the options for the celiac disease and gluten sensitive communities, there’s still some work to be done in the affordability department. Gluten-Free on a Budget offers a solution by bringing readers the perfect blend of delicious food that keeps taste buds satisfied without breaking the bank.”-Alice Bast, President and CEO of the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA)
“Anyone who has visited the gluten-free section of a grocery store knows that these products can be costly. In their new book “Gluten-Free on a Budget,” authors Chandice Probst and Tana Besendorfer offer suggestions to help maximize variety of diet, while minimizing the impact on your pocketbook. One of the best? Make your own food. Probst and Besendorfer make it easy with recipes like Peanut Butter Bars with Chocolate Frosting Swirl, Sweet and Sour Chicken, Nut-Encrusted White Fish and All-American Apple Pie. Grab your copy, prop it open to your favorite recipe, and start cooking!”-Kyra Bussanich, The Food Network’s Three-Time ‘Cupcake Wars’ winner and author of Sweet Cravings: 50 seductive desserts for a gluten-free lifestyle (TenSpeed)
