“Celebrations” by Danielle Walker


Danielle Walker’s, Against all Grain, “Celebrations” covers a year of gluten-free, dairy-free, and paleo recipes for every occasion.  All the major holidays are covered including: New Years Eve, Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, 4th of July, Summer Showers, Halloween, Autumn Dinner, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.  What I love about this book are the great photos which accompany each recipe, the hints and suggestions (tidbits) for ingredient substitution or make ahead suggestions, and the wide variety of foods that will find any home cook satisfied and able to find multiple recipes that will be of interest.  I will admit, I don’t have arrowroot powder in my pantry just yet, nor do I commit to a paleo, grain free, or dairy free  diet.  Even so, there are many recipes I would make from this book such as Carnitas on Tostones, BLTA Burger with Special Sauce, Blackened Salmon with Stone-Fruit Salsa,  Ginger Ale,  Whipped Coconut Cream. I imagine this book would be a life saver for someone who is on a strict grain free, paleo, or dairy free diet.  I am also looking forward to sharing this book with a friend who is on a plant based diet.  I received this book for an honest review through Blogging for Books.
