First, a large portion of the book is for recipes that have little or nothing to do with allergies. I would expect a book for people with dairy and wheat allergies to be primarily baked goods and breads, gravies, desserts, coating etc. One of the recipes is for chicken soup (not even homemade) that is canned broth, frozen vegetables and cooked chicken (seriously, that's it). She has recipes like a fruit smoothie: freeze banana and other fruit and blend them until smooth...really?
Second, there is one recipe per page, and many of them take up less than 1/3 of the page (what a waste of paper). I guess they needed to make it look like a real book.
Third, ALL of the recipes call for oat flour. So while there are some recipes for breads and baked goods, they are of little value to most. Many people with gluten issues cannot eat oats and need recipes with less common grains like quinoa. She offers absolutely no other options or instructions for replacements.
Fourth, she explains absolutely nothing about dairy replacements. She just says "margarine" and says you will have to work that out. Well, let me tell you, what kind of butter/shortening/margarine makes a huge difference in baking, ESPECIALLY if you are baking without gluten.
This book was a complete waste of my money!! Instead look at The Ultimate Food Allergy Cookbook And Survival Guide. Luckily I bought it at the same time. There are lists of foods by group, how to do a rotation diet, and recipes for nearly every grain in existence. Lots of serious information!
Food allergies and health issues are a serious problem. This book will not aid you in your quest for safer and better allergy-free eating.
This cookbook is wonderful! I don't have to worry about finding a substitute since every recipe already has removed the allergens. Last night, he had his first cupcake! What a joy to be able to have real cakes and treats to celebrate.
