I have two problems with this book:
1. Some of the recipes aren't what I would call healthy, especially considering this is a book aimed at kids. While the author does include some low-sugar recipes, there are also quite a few that call for vegetable shortening, and there are no alternatives for that listed.
2. I've had trouble with some of the recipes not cooking up very well, in particular the cookies, fritters, and black bean burgers. I've been cooking GF/DF for a year now and usually do pretty well, but even after attempting some of these recipes several different times they're just not working. Because of that I'm to the point now where I'm using this book only for ideas, then looking to other sources for actual recipes, which kind of defeats the purpose of owning the cookbook in the first place.
Not sure I would recommend this book as the main source for a family trying to cook allergy-free, but it does work as a source for those who are in need of some inspiration and new ideas.
The recipe for Harvest Soup, for example, calls for 3 tablespoons of olive oil, but the directions do not indicate when the olive oil is supposed to be added. The recipe also calls for two apples, but does not say whether they should be peeled and cored (presumably they should) and how they should be chopped. The Beef Broccoli Noodle recipe turned out well, but only because we adjusted the proportions significantly. We put in 3x the amount of broccoli called for, for example, and we could have used even more. An estimate of how long the meat might take to cook and how long the sauce might take to thicken would have been extremely useful. The Savory Muffin recipe says that the recipe makes 24 muffins, but we only got 12 small muffins out of it.
My partner and I are experienced cooks, so we've managed to make a lot of these recipes work, but it's frustrating to have to constantly improvise as we go. For those who are not at home in the kitchen, I think that these recipes would be very difficult to follow.
