This is not Gluten Free, but it is "animal" free. These recipes are all for one serving and good for one person. There were quite a few interesting little recipes that I would like to try, but I would have to make it 5 times and that is just too much work when I can make something once and cut into servings. This is good for a single person or someone who eats alone frequently (that was me before kids and while husband worked 3rds).
These were definitely meant for men to make, men who don't cook a lot or at all. They are super simple and definitely have a flair for Mardi Gras. I marked a couple for trying, but most were not something I would make, due to allergies. I could not touch or eat the ingredients. I do recommend the book as it was interesting and seemed very fun. It has food and drink recipes.
Let me start by saying that School Lunches was an interesting assortment of "lunches" but not something I would have sent to school with my kids (when they were in Public School), because they were just not practical. The other thing with this book is that while they would be good for homeschooling lunches, this book is listed as not available (or at least the copy I got for free is not available).
The other books were quite interesting and I marked quite a few for making with my kids for meals and desserts and for gifting.
I read these all in one sitting, because my asthma started up strong (lots of drugs) and to top it off I got a sinus and ear infection (more drugs). I am just super tired and the birthday curse hit again. The birthday curse is when we celebrate 5 birthday in 3 days (2 on 22nd, my daughter and a cousin's daughter, my bil, my birthday and another cousin's daughter).
I do recommend the books. I thoroughly enjoyed the smoothie book and think I will try making a few of those.
