3.0 out of 5 stars complicated/in depth, 2 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
very thorough and in depth recipes with lots of styles of bread. Some recipes rely on special flours not easily sourced in uk but would recommend her other book gf on a shoestring in that case (which I much prefer), that uses generic GF flour blends.
These recipes are not dairy free (although there is some advice about how to substitute).

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! Fun way to get fit!, 4 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Menu and graphics are much improved for Zumba 2.

As with the first one, the high intensity routines go rather fast - there are tutorials for the basic steps, but I prefer to do the same routines until I'm more familiar with the moves , and it's not like there's anyone to get embarrassed in front if if you get it wrong!

What a fun way to get fit! Much better than just doing a DVD.

The only improvements I think they could make is to allow you to slow down the faster routines for when you're learning the steps - like you can for the basic tutorials. But I am just nit picking!

It's great that you can customise classes with the songs you want in this second edition.

2.0 out of 5 stars Simplistic, 19 April 2013
This review is from: Origami Zoo (Kindle Edition)
Loved Jackson's Origami toys that tumble book, but this is quite frankly disappointing.

All the models with the exception of the pig and dinosaur are rather unconvincing and too simplistic (like the snail of the front cover).

You can tell this is the first in the series as some of the tasks are a bit laborious (car errands, sewing, golf scores) and navigation from one place to another has too many steps. However, this doesn't spoil an enjoyable detective game. A great game if you like puzzle/adventure games rather than the shoot em ups or hidden object games that are saturating the market at the moment....

Thoroughly recommend Scarlet Hand which is another game in this series.

Just so you know. These are clearly not gluten free - so they shouldn't be coming up in a gf search!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best GF book I've bought (and I've bought lots...), 5 Jan 2011
Thoroughly recommend this. I got it for Christmas and I have to say it's refreshing to have a GF book dedicated to baking. There's a good range of recipes -focaccia, breadsticks, biscuits, small cakes, big cakes, fancy coffee cakes. I've made some of the recipes already and am impressed with the textures - the biscuits are soft and the cakes are moist. (sounds like not much to ask for but if you've tried other GF biscuit recipes before, you'll know how amazing this is!...)

The ingredients are all easy to get hold of - i.e. in supermarkets (unlike the American GF recipe books I have, like babycakes, which ask for special bean flour and liquid/fruit sugars). Also, I'm pleased the recipes work well with Doves Farm GF plain flour mix.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic little green book, 17 Feb 2009
This little book is well worth the money. Easy to dip into during lessons, most activities require no preparation. Also it has a useful index where you can search by language outcome or game title.

I use it loads!
