Review

Rave reviews for DIVVIES BAKERY:
 
"Sandler is the owner and founder of Divvies, a New York bakery that has been featured on Good Morning America and The Martha Stewart Show. Here, she provides easy-to-prepare sweets for people with allergies (and vegans, too). The introduction lists items to keep on hand in the pantry, refrigerator, and freezer, as well as equipment. While television viewers may be familiar with some of the recipes, those new to Divvies are sure to discover delectable desserts such as Divvies Famous Chocolate Cupcakes and Pick-Your-Berry Muffins (which call for soy milk). Expect demand." --Library Journal
 
"Divvies (think "divvying up," for sharing) goodies are clearly timely - the number of children with severe food allergies seems to be rapidly increasing, though no one is sure why - but they are also tasty." --The New York Times
 
"Consumption and sharing may cause others around you to develop "allergies" as well. Keep in a cool, dry, secret place." --Daily Candy
 
"The cookies are rich and chewy, and the salty-sweet kettle corn won us over." --Gourmet magazine
 
"Divvies has created a way for everyone to get together, so go ahead and plan your own sweet celebration." --Urban Baby

I don't usually write reviews of things but I felt the need to share my joy about this book. Having three kids with food allergies, we struggle every day with things like eating out, public events, and birthday parties. Not only have we found the recipes in this book delicious and easy to make, we love the tips that are included to just make life easier. The Sandlers know what it's all about and Lori's tips are an added bonus to this wonderful book. My youngest son is just about Benjamin's age and when he saw the picture in the book of party ideas, he said "Mom, can we make those cupcakes?" He's never really wanted to do any baking but he was so proud of his cupcakes and they really tasted great. We tried the chocolate puddings and really enjoyed the flavor and the fact that it's served warm made it extra special. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has been looking for delicious recipes that are clear and easy to follow that produce great results. I have a friend who's daughter has allergies and I am going to get a copy for her as a birthday gift.

I have a food allergic child and love to bake. It has been difficult for me to figure out how to make substitutions for eggs and dairy that are safe, yet still work to create a great tasting dessert. So far I have made two recipes from this book and have been pleasantly surprised - they were great! I made the Ginger Snaps and the Cinnamon Buns. My family loved them both. Thank you Divvies!

I have mail-ordered cookies from Divvies Bakery before and my daughter (who is allergic to eggs and nuts) loves the chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin ones. So I was excited to buy the book on Amazon. Tonight I made the vanilla cupcakes for my daughter's preschool Halloween party and it was a horrible experience. I am a frequent baker and have made all kinds of baked goods (cookies, scones, muffins, cakes, meringues, creme brulee, cheesecakes, pies, etc.) so I rarely trip up over a recipe. First of all, the recipe says to prepare a 12-well cupcake pan but then at the end it says this recipe makes 18 cupcakes. Huh? Then while baking, the batter "exploded" out of the wells. After cooling, the cupcake tops got hard and stuck to the pan so that I could not get any of the cupcakes out of the pan. I tasted one of the ruined cupcakes and it was very salty. In the end, I threw all of the cupcakes away and ended up baking other cupcakes from Cherrybrook Kitchen's yellow cake mix (they turned out great). I'm almost afraid to make something else from the Divvies cookbook. Maybe I'll get the courage again one of these days. I'm giving this two stars instead of one because we still like their mail-ordered cookies.

Finally - a cookbook for food allergic adults and children. The recipes in this book are delicious and easy to make. The first recipe I tried was the chocolate chip cookies which came out delicious. Even the baking time worked out great, although I always keep a careful eye when baking. I feel so confident about the recipes and tips in this book, as I know this is something the author Lori Sandler has created for her own son Benjamin. Who better to get recipes from than someone like Lori who has real life experience with food allergies! You have made life a lot easier and more FUN for families with food allergies! KUDOS to you Lori!!

I was so excited when my best friend brought me a copy of the new Divvies Cookbook. She knows how I struggle with making tasty treats for my kids who can't have any nuts or eggs. I couldn't decide what to make first from all the tempting selections. I actually let my kids choose what they wanted me to try and they both agreed on the apple-apricot Cake. WOW!! It was so tasty and delicious that it only lasted one day. The cinnamon buns were the next one on their list of must trys and we were equally excited about the results. The kitchen smelled so good while they were baking.
At last, a cookbook that's easy to follow with great results. What else could I ask for. Thanks Divvies for coming up with such tasty recipes, we can't wait to try them all.

I have been a long time fan of Divvies products. One of my children has food allergies but EVERYONE in my house LOVES Divvies cupcakes, cookies and popcorn. I love to bake and I love to entertain but it is not always easy to please everyone and still keep my desserts safe and yummy for everyone. I was so happy and surprised by The Divvies Bakery Cookbook!! Before I even started to bake I flipped thru the book...it is amazingly beautiful!! It has the same beautiful colors and feeling of the Divvies products my family has come to love. The pictures are GREAT and everything looks so yummy.

The book is clever and smart...I LOVE the "Before you begin" section. It talks about foods to keep on hand, in the pantry and the fridge and most importantly...how to read labels and how to be safe.

I found "Baking Basics" to be very helpful as well. There was new stuff to learn, even for someone who bakes frequently

I also enjoy how the book is divided into really fun sections like, "Outdoors and on the road" and "Its your party". It is very reader friendly and filled with GREAT ideas.

The first thing we made at home was the chocolate bags. We had so much fun making them!! It is a beautiful dessert to serve your company OR your family. All five of us melted chocolate, painted our paper bags, peeled our frozen bags and filled them with sorbet and fruit. DELICIOUS!!! We had a great time...fun family activity.

Tip...DO NOT skip the beginning of the book...so much to read...Lori's dedication and note...the note from Benjamin and the sweet story about a child's visit to the bakery. It is all so warm and heartfelt, you will feel good reading it (and perhaps shed a tear or two)

Congratulations to Lori Sandler and thank you for this gift from the heart for your inspiration, Benjamin and to all of us. I can't wait to try more recipes!
