Editorial Reviews

Review

"We love Kelly Rudnicki’s new cookbook, The Food Allergy Mama’s Baking Book ($19.95; Agate Surrey), with its dozens of delicious dairy-, egg-, and nut-free recipes."
Parenting

"Chances are, someone in your office or your kid’s class is vegan, lactose-intolerant, or allergic to half the ingredients in your famous snickerdoodles. Learn to whip up all your favorites without eggs, dairy or nuts—and in most cases, with less fat."
Shape

"Rudnicki’s Web site is loaded with useful recipes and tips for handling food allergies at home and in school....To try her recipes (such as the banana chocolate chip muffins shown here), check out her blog or her book, The Food Allergy Mama’s Baking Book: Great Dairy-, Egg-, and Nut-Free Treats for the Whole Family.
-Disney Family Fun magazine

“This hot-off-the-presses gem is a baking basic for moms raising kids with food allergies. The whole family will enjoy the recipes, though there’s a focus on dealing with birthday parties and allergy-free treats for school.”
Library Journal

“[Kelly's] tips for baking, reading labels, and allergy-sensitive entertaining, as well as her allergy-friendly product suggestions, will be a boon to anyone who shops and cooks for family members at risk from common allergens.”
Today’s Diet and Nutrition

"A welcome addition to my culinary library, and I’m looking forward to using it on a regular basis."
—Barbara Revsine, Edible Chicago

4.0 out of 5 stars Soy is isn't so October 1, 2011
By Heather
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am so disappointed in how many recipes call for tofu. Like a significant percentage of kids with a dairy allergy, my son is also allergic to soy. I can replace soy milk, soy margarine and soy yogurt pretty easily with coconut products, but I don't know what to do about the tofu or dairy free sour cream....almost every recipe calls for soy and almost all of the cakes/brownies call for tofu or dairy free sour cream.
I should have read the title better, it says nothing about being soy free, but I just did not expect this much soy.
Go dairy free is a better option for those with dairy, egg,soy and wheat allergies.

5.0 out of 5 stars If I could give it 6 stars, I would! April 27, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having tried several food allergy cookbooks and being an avid baking family, this is BY FAR THE BEST food allergy baking book available. I simply LOVE the Food Allergy Mama and am thankful she wrote this book!!! Not only does it have fantastic recpies but also great product and technique suggestions for baking without eggs/nuts/dairy. By the way, her blog is a wonderful resource as well.

The first recipe from the book I tried was the yellow birthday cake. My son is only 2 1/2 but already is aware that he can't have everything that the rest of his family can due to his food allergies. So, for my husband's birthday, he asked me to bake a cake my son could eat also. I presented my family with a three layer cake from this book that looked like the "regular" version...and I literally was jumping up and down when we all tasted the results. My son kept saying, "I have daddy's cake! Can I have more?" The cake was moist, rose like a regular cake, and was truly delicious. Other favorites: oatmeal raisin cookies (even better than my old version), whole wheat oatmeal pancakes (the best pancakes I've ever made AND they're healthy!!!), and muffins. Pretty much everything we've tried is super.

Having a child with egg and nut allergies, our world has been turned upside down. This book has brought a lot of joy back to my life as a mommy who loves to bake for her kids. Thank you, for helping me let my child experience many of the fun kid moments like yummy birthday cake and homemade cookies hot out of the oven! I can't say enough good things about this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars It doesn't get any better than this .... November 1, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
To say this is the ABSOLUTE BEST cookbook for children with allergys would be a HUGE understatement. It does not get any better than this book. Kelly has a true gift. I have several other cookbooks and they are terrible. I love how Kellys recipes are every day household items. I live out in the middle of nowhere and having to find items that my local stores do not sell was very had with the other cookbooks. Then the food would taste like dirt and there were no pictures to see what "said food should look like" Kellys book is the exact opposite. Her recipes are every day ingredients. You can tell she puts her heart and soul into her recipes. Kelly is a lifesaver and I am just so thankful for how much she has helped my family. Not the first person has noticed that any of the foods I have made were dairy/egg/nut free. How wonderful is that?
Like I said IT DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS COOKBOOK!!
I would pay triple the amount... that is how good it is!

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious treats EVERYONE can enjoy! October 5, 2009
Format:Paperback
I stumbled upon Kelly's blog about a year ago and started baking my way through it - anxiously awaiting her next post! I was thrilled when she announced her book because now I have one easy to use reference for my weekend baking! Her recipes are great, everyone loves them, the kids love to make them (and lick the beaters, spatulas and spoons!), most can't even tell they are allergy free, and they don't require fancy ingredients or mixtures. An all around delicious book that has allowed me to bring a variety of "safe" desserts to friends houses AND allows my son to eat the same treats everyone else is enjoying. Thanks Kelly!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Allergy Resouce Yet! November 30, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I can't say enough good things about this book! I stumbled upon Kelly's blog almost a year ago, and have eagerly checked for updates almost daily since then. I love having all the recipes (plus more!) in this book. The ingredients are things I can easily find at my local grocery store, and are things we're all used to eating anyway. The recipes are simple & straightforward enough that I can involve my 2 1/2 yr old in baking them on my 1st try. And most importantly, they taste awesome! So many non-food allergic friends & family rave over what I bake and ask me for the recipes. I direct them all to Kelly's recipes! Before I found her book, I struggled to find a great chocolate chip cookie recipe - all the ones I baked previously tasted "good enough" but not anything special. Then I found her chocolate chip cookie recipe & it is phenomenal!

I don't like cereal for breakfast, and most mornings make one of the pancake recipes, the oatmeal raspberry squares or one the many muffin recipes. The recipes require far less time than many others I've seen.

I'm excited to try all the bread recipes in here. They look fantastic!

Some don't miss recipes that I have tried include gingerbread cake, oatmeal pancakes, oatmeal raspberry squares, banana chocolate chip muffins, apple muffins & sugar cookies.

I sometimes feel frustrated when some well-intentioned older relatives start pitying my daughter for her food allergies. They comment on all that she can't eat, and refer to what she does eat as "weird food." I've discovered that all I need to do to shut them up is bake & serve them one of Kelly Rudnicki's recipes. :-) Thanks, Kelly!
