Good resource for substitutions
on January 30, 2000
This book has helped the most when I need a substitution or need help reading labels for all the many names which food allergens hide under. In this respect, I think the book is the best. I did find the authors writing style to be somewhat offensive to those of us who are entering the cooking scene. She has a way of making readers feel bad for not homecooking every morsel our children ingest. Also, I found that many of the main and side dish recipes were pretty standard fare. Like I stated earlier though, her substitution list and label names under which the allergens are hiding is very helpful as I read labels at the supermarket. I find alot of prepared products which are allergy free for my child by reading labels carefully and the lists and resources in this book are indispensible for that purpose.
