Review:

I have to start out by saying that my family doesn’t really have any food allergies. But I love to cook and bake, and I am always looking for healthier options to feed my family. I liked this cookbook, and I think families that do have food allergies will love it.

Each kid-friendly recipe is broken down to let you know whether it is gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, egg-free and soy-free. And there are many recipes that are free of them all. There are several sections in the book called Cooking with Kids that give parents pointers on how to get their children involved in the cooking and preparation process. There is even a whole section in the cookbook dedicated to party food, which includes things such as chocolate cake, gluten-free cupcakes, corn dogs, and party mix.

We tried several of the recipes. My favorites were the Cheesy Stuffed Pizza Burgers, Sunset Pops, and Indoor S’mores. I really liked the snack section of the cookbook, because I struggle with trying to find my kids more nutritious snacks. The only downfall of some of the recipes were that they had ingredients that I have never heard of. But I am sure if you are used to cooking for allergies, you would be familiar with some of the ingredients. I also liked the fact that in many of the recipes you could substitute items if you weren’t allergic to them. For instance, instead of using gluten-free chocolate chips in the Indoor S’mores, I just used regular chocolate chips. The recipes are very versatile based on allergy needs.

    We do not have a lot of true food allergies, but due to medical problems and medicine interactions, soy, caffeine, and walnuts are banned from our household. In addition, we host many people in our home and it is helpful to have additional arsenals of help to provide healthy food that does not trigger their allergies or food sensitivities. This book would be a huge blessing in our home. Reply
