This cookbook has been a lifesaver for our family. Our son has autism and is on a gluten/casein-free diet and our daughter is gluten intolerant. There are plenty of GFCF cookbooks out there and we did okay with finding meals that they could eat.

Then, our baby was diagnosed with food allergies to peanuts, tree nuts, and eggs, and that changed everything! I tried baking GFCF desserts without eggs and had one disaster after the other. I eventually found a few things that worked, but I still needed more recipes.

I was thrilled to discover this cookbook because it addresses all of our allergies. I've made many recipes from it, and every single one so far has been a hit with the kids. We've enjoyed the main dishes (the General Tso's Chicken is amazing!), the snack mixes are great, and the desserts are delicious. I'd given up on trying to make brownies without wheat or eggs, but there are two brownie recipes in this book, and they're both incredible.

I've recommended this cookbook to many people. The only thing I'd point out is that some of the recipes call for Bragg's Liquid Aminos, which we don't use, or, alternately, soy sauce. Regular soy sauce has wheat in it, so it's important to look for wheat-free Tamari Soy Sauce, if avoiding wheat or gluten.

This cookbook is great. My daughter is on a rotation diet and it is impossible to find recipies that are varied and do not contain rice flour. This cookbook has recipies that uses many different flours and the results are amazing. I love how she adds club soda to her bread recipies and how it makes the flour so light and fluffy. The pig in the blanket recipe is a family favorite. If you have a child with intolerances or allergies buy this book.

My husband is celiac with additional allergies to casein, soy, and eggs and should probably be avoiding of a lot of other things due to the fact we are not getting completely well...we're still trying to figure out what's going on with him and why. I've tried every cookbook under the sun that addresses these issues, but he's not a child with autism, so we have a little more grown up tastes. Being free of all the allergens is new to us, so we like to keep it simple and realistic, unlike what some other cookbooks require to be allergen free. We were about to give up until I forced this cookbook on him in the form of a Christmas present (the "girl" in the title was a little off-putting to him- men...go figure). He is ecstatic that he can eat a quality meal again and vary his options when doing so! This is the most complete information guide to allergies plus recipe book we believe is out there. I will second that the General Tso's is so good it rivals that of the commercial chains that have gluten free offerings (even without the wine and soy sauce). Thank you so much "Super Allergy Girl!"

I serendipitously found this cookbook while searching for ways to help our son on a gluten free diet. This cookbook is essential in our kitchen, since our son has multiple food sensitivities - gluten, egg, dairy, soy - which make it so difficult to cook and bake. I am so glad I bought this cookbook - I learned so much so quickly, just reading through it! In addition to the wonderful baking, main dish, dessert, and snack recipes, there are so many helpful tips, resources, and informational sections. We have used so many aspects of this book to better the health of our family and the recipes are great!

Frankly, I'm boggled by all the 5 star reviews.

I bought this book because I have allergies to gluten, eggs and milk. I bought it on the strength of the reviews; I've been really disappointed with it. It calls for a lot of branded products like Energy-G egg replacer (in nearly all of the baking recipes), which isn't available to me where I live (in central Europe, or the rest of the world for that matter). Likewise, a lot of the flours she calls for aren't available. So while these recipes might be delicious, I'm unable to make them. Keep in mind you need access to a good bio shop, willing to make expensive online purchases, or buy a grain mill; and you need to live in the States. For baking (which is primarily why I bought the book) I've had better luck making egg and dairy substitutes from a normal gluten-free cook book. And if I can't get gluten free lasagna noodles, how can I make gluten free lasagna? And couldn't I have figured that out how to use gluten free noodles on my own, I mean do I really need a recipe for that?? I was looking for a cookbook with innovative recipe ideas, not a cookbook that says, "go buy this special product and make the foods you've always made." Or, "hey, why not make mashed potatoes without milk, or hash browns, those are naturally gluten free! To make gluten free stuffing, use gluten free bread and a normal recipe!" I can figure all that out for myself.

2nd issue: it's a kid centric book. It has snacks for kids, desserts for kids, and the main courses are generally simple and designed to appeal to unsophisticated taste buds. This isn't gourmet food folks.

For anyone who is a reasonably experienced cook and whose tastes go beyond mac and cheese, there are better books out there. For those who want to feed their gluten-free casein free kids and have no clue, this one's for you.
