Customer Reviews

What I really like about this book is, the recipes are quite simple.
Pat Thurman
The cover is very misleading as almost all recipes include dairy or eggs or both, and the suggested substitute for any cheese is a soy imitation.
Avid Reader
I would NOT recommend this book to anyone searching for allergy-free recipes if the allergies include dairy and eggs.

I was pleased to see at least two other people mentioned this, but thought I'd throw in my two cents.

With a non-allergic 4 year old and a 2 year old allergic to wheat,dairy, eggs, fish and nuts, I was hoping to find some recipes that would please both kids. Almost all the recipes have dairy or eggs in them. The dairy-free and egg-free options are just to omit them. Great! Pick up any cookbook for that.

I made one recipe from this book and it was awful. (A cake recipe that I had to use 3 substitutions for). There are much better cake recipes out there.

This book is on its way to the used bookstore . . .

The title of this book states that the recipes are dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, wheat-free, etc... I bought this book because my children have dairy, egg, and nut allergies and am looking for recipes that do not merely use substitions, but are thoughtfully tested to taste good without these ingredients. The majority of the recipes in this book contain dairy and/or eggs and then at the bottom of the recipe, it simply says to omit or substitute a non-dairy ingredient or egg replacer. Who needs an allergy cookook to tell you to do this? It was depressing to read a book full of supposedly allergy-friendly recipes and find that I had to substitute something in each recipe. The title is totally misleading and the book is useless and disheartening if you have anything but a wheat allergy. I have had MUCH better success with vegan cookbooks in which the recipes are actually planned and tested to avoid dairy and eggs. I would NOT recommend this book to anyone searching for allergy-free recipes if the allergies include dairy and eggs.

I bought this book looking for recipes for my very picky son who is allergic to dairy, eggs, and nuts. I was very disappointed, because most of the recipes contained some or all of these ingredients (in spite of the misleading title), then included a note at the bottom to omit or substitute these ingredients. The author would have been better off making it clear upfront that this is a book for individuals with wheat allergies, rather than misleadingly trying to market it to such a broad group of people. One other thing...the book offers no pictures of the dishes it contains. Altogether it was a huge disappointment, and I returned it. I have found that, for my son's allergies, "What's to Eat the Milk-free, Egg-free, Nut-free Food Allergy Cookbook" by Linda marienhoff Coss, was a much better purchase.

I thought this book was going to be full of great recipes for parents who have kids with food allergies. Some of the recipes tell you "common sense" things; substitute egg with Energ egg replacer, which if you have a child with egg allergies you know that. It has a recipe for Easy Mac that has noodles, butter and a cheese packet. That is the recipe on the macaroni box. Sorry! I feel like I wasted my money.

After reading thru this book, I wished I had saved my money. This IS a recipe book with kid favorites in it. At the end of each recipe is a note how to make it dairy free, egg-free, nut free, etc. Let me save YOU some money. In the book, if a recipe calls for milk, cheese, or butter - soy milk, soy cheeses or vegetable margarine is the substitute. If it calls for eggs - use egg replacer. If it calls for a nut oil - use olive oil. If it calls for pasta - use gluten free pasta. If it calls for wheat flour - use rice flour instead. You now have the basis for this books food allergy cooking. (we also have soy allergy so all the replacements of soy and margarine are of no use to me.) The only saving grace for this book is the shopping hints in the front of the book, about 10 pages.

The subtitle of the book implies that all the recipes are free of the allergens listed, but that is erroneous. I was very disappointed in this book because most of the recipes include at least one or more of the items the subtitle clains that they're free of.

Many, many recipes in this book call for eggs, nuts, peanuts and milk. My son is allergic to all these but CAN actually eat wheat just fine. I thought this book would have lots of ideas on things I could feed my son. But really it is a gluten-free cookbook which calls for his allergens and then says, "for egg allergies omit eggs", "for nut allergy omit nuts." I could have just bought a gluten-free cookbook and omited eggs and nuts. There would be no difference except that I wouldn't feel frustrated every time I read "omit nuts" and "use soy milk instead of milk" or whatever.

I think the title of this book should have been 'More than 150 recipes for the Celiac and wheat-allergic child which are low in sugar.'

The author has *NO* idea what it is to have a child with nut, egg and dairy allergies. Also, many of the suggestions she gives and resources she listed are *NOT* OK for children with nut, egg and dairy allergies either.

Frustrating book!

However, I do think that it is probably an *excellent* cookbook if your child has Celiac or a wheat/barley/rye allergy so she gets 2 starts intead of just 1.

This cookbook was disapointing because it seemed that the only flour used in most recipies is rice flour. My 22 month old is alergic to wheat, dairy, and eggs, so I have the freedom to use multiple other flours that contain more protein - and I prefer to. It's hard enough to get veggies in him and meat protein is next to impossible. I'm having a hard time finding useful recipies in this book.
