Hey gang! At the end of this week those of us in the U.S.A. will be celebrating our independence from the United Kingdom. A fact that is hi-lar-ious to my 9-year-old anglophile who adores Harry Potter and can’t imagine anything going awry between our country and the UK due to our “special relationship.” But that’s not what I’m here to talk about, even though I’m fantasizing about sparklers and gluten-free cheeseburgers coming up ASAP.
This week is also the week where I give away copies of my brand new book, The Gluten-Free Cheat Sheet: Go G-Free in 30 Days or Less. I went with less, given my horrifying stomach pain and distress. But you do you.
Today is the first day! Huzzah! And I believe this is the right day to give away a copy to those of you who were not able to share my first book, Gluten Is My Bitch: Rants, Recipes & Ridiculousness for the Gluten-Free with someone you loved, who hated gluten. I know you’re out there. You hate gluten AND cursing. And probably hate poop jokes and crude humor and again, cursing. You may have needed my no-nonsense advice and whining, but you were not about to “stoop to my level.” That’s okay, I totally get it. And it’s possible I’m related to you. Anyhoo.
So to win a copy of my new book, let me know in comments or on my FB page (hey, I read it all) who you were not able to share GIMB with, but would be so stoked to share my new book with tons of recipes and zero foul language. Please be honest, creative, and super entertaining. The best answer wins!
Tune in tomorrow to see what’s next! WINWINWINWINWINWIN!
My mother in law is always interested in the gluten free diet. She has a good sense of humor, but if she found the book around her house it might raise a few eyebrows, as she helps direct her church choir, and often entertains priests and church members who would NOT be so amused.
I would have to explain that it’s all in fun. Much like the time I had to explain that the tuxedo thong that I gave my husband (and she found jammed into his suitcase on a college break) when we were dating was a joke
My sister – she loves to eat GF!
My mother-in-law! God love her, but gluten-free it’s hard for her to stick to even though it gives her massive migraines and tummy troubles.
My clients. Somehow a psychologist telling a conservative gf client, ” hey, you should read: gluten is my bitch ” might just cause a therapeutic rupture…
I’d give a copy to my boyfriend. He often wants to surprise me (a celiac- diagnosed 4 years ago) with a meal, or plan to cook something romantic, and isn’t sure how. He wants to be able to own the process, but often has to get me involved to double check things.
My grandma! Though she would’ve gotten a kick out of the first book too! 😉
I am pretty sure my husband needs a copy of this book. He tries oh so hard to cook for me with my gluten allergy, but I usually end up doing the cooking 🙂
PS: I have just stumbled upon your site (while googling what happened to the GF pillsbury dough that seemed to have vanished off shelves everywhere in my area) and am sort of excited to poke around! Not sure how I didn’t land here prior to today!
I would give this to my husband. He tries so hard to cook for my gluten allergy but i end up cooking most of the time. Any new tips or recipes would be beyond helpful 🙂
PS: I just discovered your site! (while trying to google what happened to GF Pillsubry Pie Dough that seems to have disappeared off shelves everywhere in my area). I am excited to poke around!
I would share it with whomever would listen to my crazy self. My 8 year old shares it with his buddies because he likes the title, but still doesn’t understand why “Gluten is My Bitch.”He hasn’t caught onto my close relationship with Vaseline yet. 🙂 I read it to my husband and he just doesn’t get it and looks at me weird. I say it’s a Celiac thing.
“Mrs. Allie…..what special treat could little Jilly and I make for you to thank you for being her piano teacher?” Such a sweet little child………that’s a ‘nope’ on GIMB, much as I love it!
I have a sweet and innocent friend who would blush a thousand times over at the mention of your first cookbook. In fact, she did!! I know she would love the additional GF recipes, but could never place it on a bookshelf. Not only does she have young children, but her husband is the preacher!
I am confident your new cookbook would have her only stomach issues left up to congregational discourse instead of gluten gluttony.
Wait, there’s someone who doesn’t love cussing and poop jokes? Not in my circle. Would love to read cookbook (congrats on the publication) and then share with GF friends.
Hello, I was not able to share your previous book as I have only recently found out that I am gluten intolerant, however I would love to share your new book with my gluten/dairy free guru in Sydney, Australia where I will be returning in a few month. (Yes, I’m currently living in the U.S.). I met your first book this morning and loved it and look forward to trying out some of the recipes. Thank you. 🙂
