Editorial Reviews

Review

"The writings of Lisa Lewis have made a huge impact on the field of autism. As an educator and a parent, Dr. Lewis has been instrumental in describing the issues of gluten and casein sensitivities, and how these problems affect the behavior of autistic individuals. She has changed the lives of many autistic individuals and their families.”
--Stephen Edelson, Ph.D., Director of the Center for the Study of Autism


"Special Diets for Special Kids has a prominent position in our allergen-free household! We all have various food allergies and this is one resource I won't be without. Each recipe thus far has been wonderful and surprisingly simple. The Baked Kibbe, Sloppy Joes, and Hamentashen have quickly become family favorites. Eating without gluten, especially, has changed our 'hyper' son's behavior drastically and he's no longer the fussy eater that he was. His teacher was shocked at the change for the better. Oh, and our dinner guests without dining challenges love this food as well. Thank you for this indispensable resource!"

--Tamara Dever, Creative Director, TLC Graphics, and mom of family with food allergies

I have had both volumes of this book in my cupboard for years now, and it is filled with crumbs. Pages are stuck together from spilled parts of delicious recipes that I have made and my family has savored, and I cannot come close to expressing how excited I am that my loose-leaf volumes are now in one gorgeous book! Congratulations, Lisa!

Okay, I don't actually know the author, but I did attend one of her seminars years ago when my son and I were first diagnosed with Celiac Disease, and he had just started to walk. Now that he is almost in third grade, and we have lived on her recipes, all I can say is, I don't know how I managed without this book, and I am thrilled that I didn't have to manage for long, because I found her, and I bought both volumes, and it is worth every penny!

Thank you for the holiday help! What can you do when you don't know how to make latkes without matzah, or apple cake without flour? She does all that and more! Her pumpkin bars are amazingly moist and delicious and good for us all -- and I have one adult male neighbor (who is not on a special diet) who would kill for me to make some more and share with him.

I think it's good food when even though it is gluten and dairy (and soy) free, kids on regular diets (g-d help them!) like it too. I mean, if you could eat ANYTHING and these recipes taste good, this is fantastic! My son and I are not deprived! We are not ashamed to serve this food to others. This is a great book!

I have bought almost every GF book there is, and this is the one I return to over and over again. The "oatmeal" cookies -- fabulous! And if you can't have something that is in one of the recipes, she helps with other substitutions. Like for eggs.

This is a great book to use to get started on a gluten free casein free diet. The recipes are easy to prepare and kid friendly. My son loves the chocolate pudding. The information about unfamiliar products was very helpful in changing our diet. After reading this book, adopting a GFCF diet seemed much more approachable.

My daughter-in-law, my 4-year old grandson, and I are all on the gluten-free, casein-free diet. I purchased this book hoping to find kid-friendly recipes. I have only tried a fee recipes from this book and, for the most part, they have been well received - even by my husband and son who are not on the diet.

I was particularly excited to learn about the DariFree milk substitute so I don't have to use a soy powdered milk. I am also happy to have a recipe for a GF Worcestershire sauce and onion soup mix. There are also recipes for evaporated milk , sweetened condensed milk, and "whipped cream" substitutes. My grandson loved the chocolate syrup recipe drizzled on the pineapple velvet cake!

I bought this book thinking it would give me some ideas. Unfortunately most of the recipes were simple common recipes. The gluten free bread recipe was good. But I was dissapointed.

This is "GREAT" book. Lots of info and things to make. I had to make some changes to some of them because my son's diet is stricter, but they gave me a very wonderful base to work with. For a lady that never cooked this was great book.
