From the Publisher
You need "Whats to Eat?"! Plumtree Press is pleased to present this comprehensive cookbook that offers solutions to the cooking and menu-planning dilemmas faced by those who must follow a dairy-, egg- and nut-free diet.
"Milk-, egg- and nut-free recipes dont have to be dull or strange," says author Linda Coss, and she proves it with this collection of recipes that are so tempting, youll forget theyre "allergy free." Here are irresistibly good recipes that can be enjoyed by everyone, whether they suffer from food allergies or not.

I know that some people will say, "well this is just a cookbook of recipes that avoid milk and nut ingredients." EXACTLY. If you are looking for a "cheesecake substitute" recipe that is like cheesecake, only dairy free, this cookbook is not for you. I have found that there are two schools of thought with food allergy cooking. The first is to try and duplicate exactly what you were eating before, only in a "safe" way. For example, you might try to make a dairy free, gluten free, egg free pizza that looked and tasted just like the "real" thing. For us, we have found that this is not a realistic way to approach our food allergy diet. You are going to be disappointed and the foods that you try to replace them with are probably not that healthy for you. This cookbook takes the approach our family has chosen to take, find different recipes/foods that you enjoy that don't try to be what they are not. A chicken recipe is good and doesn't require dairy. So we are happy with that and enjoy it for what it is. This is probably more successful for those families who decide everyone will eat the same way. With 3 out of the 4 of us in the family having the same food restrictions, that was an easy decision for us to make.
In summary, this is a great cookbook and was a lifesaver for us. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
The day I received the book in the mail I sat down and read the cookbook, cover to cover. Desperate to find a solution to dinner (and other meals), I was pleasantly amazed to read over 100 recipes for salads, soups, main dishes, breads, side dishes, and desserts. In addition, there are some suggested menus for special occasions.
Finally, I can plan a menu we can all enjoy without planning two or three meals per meal time. The ingredients are not obscure, and either in my kitchen already or I have seen them in my supermarket on a regular basis. For the next four days, I have set up a menu from the recipes in the book and have made a list of seven ingredients that I do not already have in my pantry, mostly herbs.
I am looking forward to testing these recipes and finding a freedom in our meal plans that does not include stops at the local fast food restaurant. In our home we can begin to eat our way - every day!

It was great to find a cookbook that accomodated most of the major allergens for my kids - there are a few recipes we can't use because of soy ingredients, but those are very few, and the rest more than make up for that.
I recommend this book to everyone I know who has a similar allergen list.
-Soups & Salads
-Quick Breads & Breakfast Foods
While I assert that we sometimes WANT replacement foods, my biggest complaint is that it doesn't have enough where these allergies cause trouble. Egg, nut and dairy allergies cause difficulties with breakfast, dessert and baked foods. Those are the areas where this cookbook treads lightly. It offers some wonderful cookie recipes! The cake recipes, however, taste too "healthy" for my family. :) Other than that, we've not tried anything because we haven't needed to. I know how to cook vegetables and main dishes without dairy, eggs or nuts. I don't need a special cookbook for those.
Also, the recipes don't allow for "growing out" of allergies. We've just discovered that my son, while he still has his dairy allergy, may no longer be allergic to eggs. It's much easier to just pop in some eggs than to make the oil/water/baking soda mixture necessary to use these recipes. It would be nice if the author allowed for substitutions if not all the allergies exist.
Overall, I'd say it's a good book, but I prefer The Egg, Dairy and Nut Free Cookbook.
