My only complaint would be that the instructions are written in PARAGRAPH format, instead of step by step. So I had to rewrite all the instructions on sticky notes so I could have a quick way to glance at the book to remind myself what to do next.
I learned so much. No more dull tasting meals for our 2 1/2 yr.old grandson, or our family get togethers.
Last month he was diagnosed with Celiac, I thought well there are lots of children with allergies, so no gluten right. That sounds simple, but gluten is in everything. So I'll buy packaged foods, NO they are filled with starch, sugar & some ingredients that you would not normally eat in that volume. Plus no vitamins, no nutrients. So I tried to keep it simple but that was boring, our grandson loves food, & good tasting food. Also I found I was constantly worrying, is he getting enough vitamins, it was a struggle.
Then I bought your book " Cooking for Isaiah" everything became so much easier, I could see the enjoyment with my grandson as he ate meals I would make from your book. I relaxed, it's going to be ok, better than that we are all back to "normal" family meals that we all look forward to! Thank you!
And last weekend was my son's first birthday and we were having a birthday breakfast. I was so stressed out about what to prepare - I wanted to make foods that we could eat but that our guests would enjoy too. I took a huge leap of faith and made Silvana's apple cake and her pumpkin streusal muffins (and potato/egg nests from familyfun.com). Everyone loved it - I got so many compliments and people asked me for the recipes. The best part...my husband hates pumpkin yet he ate two muffins...then later asked me what was in them that made them so yummy. He was floored when I said pumpkin! :) Anyway, I highly recommend this book - you won't be disappointed!
I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It has changed my mom's life! Although it wasn't her goal, she has lost 30 pounds since beginning her diet and is smaller than she was on her wedding day. Her skin is absolutely beautiful (her original intention with the diet was simply to clear up her skin - way to go mom!), and she looks years younger. Her strength, drive, and dedication constantly inspires me.
So for those wanting inspiration or needing support with continuing a gluten and dairy-free diet, this book is an absolute must-have! It will be the best decision you make today.
Personally, most of the recipes were too much work for me. However, I did find about 6 that will remain in my collection forever.
