Breakfast is the favorite meal of the day for millions of Americans, but those with a gluten intolerance are out of luck, since many breakfast foods and baked items have been banned from their diet. They must find gluten-free alternatives or go without. For the rising number of Americans who are choosing to follow a gluten-free diet as a healthy lifestyle and for parents experimenting with gluten-free recipes for their families, they, too, are having to do without.
            That disappointment will no longer be the case. In Gluten-Free Breakfast, Brunch & Beyond, home cooks will discover a variety of gluten-free recipes for their family’s favorite breakfast foods. From light quick breads, muffins, biscuits and scones to tasty pancakes, waffles, coffee cakes and sweet rolls, this collection of 100 recipes will bring breakfast back to the gluten-free table. A tantalizing array of frittatas, quiches, and breakfast casseroles are perfect for any meal of the day. The recipes in Gluten-Free Breakfast, Brunch & Beyond are quick and easy to make and yield delicious, satisfying results.
Recipes for homemade all-purpose flour, crepe batter, pancake batter, sweet roll dough, and biscuit dough will give every gluten-free cook the basics for creating delicious dishes of their own.
            In addition to great recipes, Gluten-Free Breakfast, Brunch & Beyond will provide cooks with the information they need about gluten-free ingredients, including ingredients to include—and avoid–in their diet and preparing and measuring ingredients. Each recipe chapter will begin with tips to help home cooks create great-tasting gluten-free breakfast specialities to serve from morning to night.

Full of lots of information right at the beginning of the book and a great tips section and introduction about what the book is about and why it’s written. I found this really useful and helpful. 
I adored the amazingly good quality pictures and I liked how many of them they used of as I always like lots of pictures along with the recipes because it helps to know what it should look like and whether or not it actually would work for you
I thought the recipes were simple and easy to follow, which means I could easily do then, as baking is not my cup of tea. My favourite section would have to be the biscuit and cake section as I haven’t grown up at all and still love cake and biscuits for breakfast but now they’re more healthier and better for you.
There are lots of recipes in here that I wouldn’t use but I like how there is a large mixture of recipes suitable for everyone.
There are so many awesome ideas in Gluten-Free Breakfast, Brunch & Beyond I know my Mum would love the quiche recipes and I think this would make an amazing birthday or Christmas present.

Overall I really liked this one and would happily buy it myself or for family and friends. The only downside is it’s a little expensive in shops but may be cheaper on Amazon (I haven’t looked there yet!)
