This is the best book I came across on this subject. I have a child on the spectrum and he is on the Gluten,Casein and Dairy Free Diet.Recipes for this type of diet can be extremely hard to master and the end result is tasteless. Not anymore, Alice Sherwood has given us a book with recipes that work and the end result looks and taste delicious like any other type of foods.The blueberry muffins is one example. The recipes are easy to follow.The book is filled with beautiful pictures and has tons of information from shopping to traveling and dining out.A must have for anyone who has food allergy.

I echo the review about many of the recipes not really being GF, DF etc. as the book says and the optional way to make each recipe isn't simple for most of the recipes. The way it's set up is confusing and many of the ingredients are expensive and unusual. This is not a book for someone who wants to find allergy-free, easier food to make, especially if they're looking to save time. It's more like a gourmet allergy-free cookbook for people that want to spend their whole day in the kitchen and have plenty of money to spend and time to read directions. And although she calls them "family" recipes, a lot of the recipes are not very kid-friendly.

I bought this book because the title says: Allergy-Free Cookbook, no eggs, no dairy, no nuts, no gluten. I was disappointed to find that this is not entirely true. Nearly all of the recipes contain at least one of those ingredients if not all of them! Variations are given on the right side of the page for the "free" versions. Things like replace heavy cream with soy cream (we don't do processed soy foods). The baked goods may be made gluten-free, but still contain dairy and eggs.

I have 2 ADHD sons and they are on the GF / CF diet. My husband is also allergic to eggs so I cook mostly without eggs. This cookbook just didn't suite my needs. It is a nice looking book with good photos. And I have found a few recipes that we all like. The Chicken Fajitas are good and we use brown rice tortillas with them, we also like the Noodles in Hot Ginger Broth.

I would check this one out from the library before purchasing it. There are other great books out there that are healthy and gluten / dairy free.

I am on an elimination diet (I can't eat any of the top 8 allergens, plus corn, beans and seeds) and was looking for recipes that would provide healthy alternatives to the foods I was used to. Most of these recipes are not allergy free, and I couldn't find one single recipe that truly eliminated all the top allergens.

I was very excited about the format of this cookbook as I have multiple food sensitivities. The disappointing part is the fact that while one sensitivity is omitted for a recipe if you have multiple foods to eliminate it is sometimes impossible to make the substitutions the book calls for. The recipes are also somewhat complicated and do not use ingredients the average cook would have on hand. This cookbook would be good for someone who is a good cook with maybe only one food allergy.

The Farmhouse gluten free bread in this book is awesome. I've been looking for a decent bread for a couple years now and this was it. I've made a couple of loaves from this book. Other recipes look good too, so I had to buy it. Had originally checked it out from the local library and decided it was something worth the very good price on Amazon, used books. What a deal.

I've made several recipes from this book (one this morning) and I've been very happy with them. You have the options to make a regular recipe, dairy free, nut free, or gluten free, so there's a lot of flexibility. I've tried several gluten free cookbooks and this is by far the best.

Lots of great recipes I make as I am on the Virgin Diet. I needed resources for recipes I could access quickly, and this cookbook "fit the bill". I also like the section on conversions, and substitutions.
