Gluten Free
Always check the labels on boxed, frozen, bulk, and canned foods that you buy to be sure they are gluten free. Products may be wheat-free but not necessarily gluten free so look for the gluten-free designation. I have listed a few brands below that make gluten-free products.

Recipes that can be easily modified:
As a general rule, it's best to use a cornstarch "slurry" to thicken soups and stews rather than substituting a gluten-free flour. Use half as much cornstarch as the wheat flour called for in these four recipes. Mix the cornstarch in a little cold water until it dissolves and there are no lumps. Pour the "slurry" into the soup or stew. Stir continuously as the mixture thickens.

I've turned every page and am enthralled!  There isn't one recipe that doesn't appeal to me hugely! What a thrill! I don't know what I am going to make first, but I will let you know. My pantry is stocked and ready! I love recipes so much and this is just fabulous!

Thanks for sharing your outstanding collection of recipes!  It's amazing how quickly The Hungry Bear Kitchen has risen to the top of my stack of "go-to" cookbooks.

The book is delightful.  I enjoyed the comments for the recipes and the drawings.  I am looking forward to trying some of the new recipes I am not familiar with.
