But rather than give up, she decided to re-create her favorite childhood treats using ingredients that were safe for food allergy sufferers like herself.
The result of her efforts is in your handsan entire book of desserts so good that even those without allergies won't know the difference. Baking without traditional ingredients might seem daunting, but Allergy-free Desserts makes it easy with baking tips and simple tricks for mouthwatering treats that are safe for people with allergies, celiac disease, or any other condition that requires adhering to strict dietary guidelines.

Donuts and lemon sugar cookies taste just the way you remember them. Lemon Squares and Red Velvet Cake will delight kids and adults alike. Gooey and rich chocolate brownies are no longer off limits, while allergy-safe pie crusts mean you'll never have to go without American classics like apple or Key lime pie.
