While this was better than the first book, I'm not a big fan. When someone disregards that spelt is one of the grains to be avoided by those who can't have gluten from wheat family products (wheat, rye, barley, spelt, etc.) spelt is NOT safe--ancient wheat grain or not. It contains the protein that needs to be avoided by those of us on the gluten free food plan. Cross contamination is always a concern for us & should be for those making products & marketing them to the gf community.

I love this book. It is one of my favorite cook books ever. The best recipe in this book is the thin mint one

I love these baking books. I have a gluten sensitivity and I choose to be vegan which can make baking difficult. The babycakes books have great recipes that I can enjoy and my non-vegan family can enjoy with me.

How about a vegan baking book that uses normal ingredients, items that most people have in their pantry? Xantham gum?? For a vegan (not gluten free) baking book, I recommend the Food Allergy Mama's Baking Book" by Kelly Rudnicki.
