Nancy B. Moore has written a cookbook called 20 Recipes Without Refined Sugars. The name threw me. I was expecting sugar-free recipes, but that is not what we have here. Ms. Moore’s recipes use raw honey or molasses, non-processed sweeteners. If the reader has discovered the benefits of bone broth, there are recipes included for making it and using it. The recipes all appear to be gluten-free as well. Ingredients are listed in both English and metric amounts. Instructions are crystal clear. The few photographs of finished products are attractive. The author is clearly passionate about her mission of ridding kitchens of refined sugar. One of the joys of reviewing a cookbook is trying out new recipes, or at the very least, imagining making them. I copied several recipes and have tucked them away in my recipe database.
To entice the cookbook collector, here are some of the recipes Nancy Moore has included in 20 Recipes Without Refined Sugars: Homemade Onion & Chicken Bone Broth, Cheesy-Broccoli Soup, Nancy’s Italian Style Pizza, Cheesy Shiitake Sauce, Honey Banana Bread, Gluten-Free, Coconut & Maple Cake, Yummy Gluten-Free Soda Bread. The chef who buys this book has to have a real dedication to going refined-sugar-free or gluten-free. Some recipes have ingredients listed that are uncommon in the average kitchen, such as ghee, guar gum, xanthan gum, quinoa flour, and pink Himalayan salt, and some cooks may find that off-putting. However, many recipes do not have unusual ingredients. I think this cookbook has its own, unique spin on everyday recipes.
