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 have gone to this book numerous times but I have never had a tasty successful meal from it. It is not what it promises - most (if not all) of the recipes contain at least one of our problem allergins, and the sidebar suggestions for non-allergin alternatives are generally useless. For example, telling me that I can replace cheese with a soy cheese and milk with soy milk, does not make an Allergy Friendly recipe.
Where I have followed a recipe with all relevant non-allergin variations, the result is disappointing and not to the exacting standards of my toddler. In all cases the food has been rejected - and an expensive and time consuming process has been completed wasted.
Also, many of the ingredients were difficult to find and required long drives to specialty shops. Unnecessarily so, as I have subsequently found (in other cookbooks & on the internet) cheaper and more readily available alternatives.
Last complaint is the use of weights, rather than any other measures. We don't have scales in this house, and don't really want to purchase them for an already fairly useless cookbook. The author should have included alternative measurements.
Pretty pictures though, and good generic allergy info at the front.
