Top Customer Reviews
Then, our baby was diagnosed with food allergies to peanuts, tree nuts, and eggs, and that changed everything! I tried baking GFCF desserts without eggs and had one disaster after the other. I eventually found a few things that worked, but I still needed more recipes.
I was thrilled to discover this cookbook because it addresses all of our allergies. I've made many recipes from it, and every single one so far has been a hit with the kids. We've enjoyed the main dishes (the General Tso's Chicken is amazing!), the snack mixes are great, and the desserts are delicious. I'd given up on trying to make brownies without wheat or eggs, but there are two brownie recipes in this book, and they're both incredible.
I've recommended this cookbook to many people. The only thing I'd point out is that some of the recipes call for Bragg's Liquid Aminos, which we don't use, or, alternately, soy sauce. Regular soy sauce has wheat in it, so it's important to look for wheat-free Tamari Soy Sauce, if avoiding wheat or gluten.
I bought this book because I have allergies to gluten, eggs and milk. I bought it on the strength of the reviews; I've been really disappointed with it. It calls for a lot of branded products like Energy-G egg replacer (in nearly all of the baking recipes), which isn't available to me where I live (in central Europe, or the rest of the world for that matter). Likewise, a lot of the flours she calls for aren't available. So while these recipes might be delicious, I'm unable to make them. Keep in mind you need access to a good bio shop, willing to make expensive online purchases, or buy a grain mill; and you need to live in the States. For baking (which is primarily why I bought the book) I've had better luck making egg and dairy substitutes from a normal gluten-free cook book. And if I can't get gluten free lasagna noodles, how can I make gluten free lasagna? And couldn't I have figured that out how to use gluten free noodles on my own, I mean do I really need a recipe for that?? I was looking for a cookbook with innovative recipe ideas, not a cookbook that says, "go buy this special product and make the foods you've always made." Or, "hey, why not make mashed potatoes without milk, or hash browns, those are naturally gluten free! To make gluten free stuffing, use gluten free bread and a normal recipe!" I can figure all that out for myself.
2nd issue: it's a kid centric book. It has snacks for kids, desserts for kids, and the main courses are generally simple and designed to appeal to unsophisticated taste buds. This isn't gourmet food folks.
For anyone who is a reasonably experienced cook and whose tastes go beyond mac and cheese, there are better books out there. For those who want to feed their gluten-free casein free kids and have no clue, this one's for you.

Too many branded and hard to find ingredients. Also, she does not mention how many servings in the main meal recipes, so I don't know how much to expect. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Deb Lily
Great resource. Just when I thought I could only eat rocks and water Lisa Lundy shows me that there is life after allergies.Published 12 months ago by Beth
Great for ideas. My two year old has many allergies but this is helpful for the most part. Although not all of her allergies are excluded the recipes are easily adjusted.Published on December 11, 2013 by Mary Moore
