Imitation is the best form of flattery.If you're trying to eat gluten-free, then you know how hard it can be to find substitutes for comfort foods - especially restaurant favorites like The Olive Garden's® breadsticks. Either the texture isn't right, or it tastes funny or doesn't bake up correctly. I'm interested in learning how to cook or bake a few things that are gluten-free, and have found easy information from recipe books and blogs. One of my favorites is from the book "Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Bakes Bread: Biscuits, Bagels, Buns and More" by Nicole Hunn (excerpted by arrangement with Da Capo Lifelong, a member of the Perseus Books Group (c) 2013). I shared this recipe with my girlfriend who is gluten-free and she loved it.
