This is a book of recipes that people with certain allergies can eat and the entire family can enjoy. In this case, the foods are free of eggs, dairy products , peanuts and tree nuts. This book is about making recipes with everyday ingredients found in your kitchen without causing you to spend $30 to make a pan of brownies. I have striven to make sure that these ingredients are not complicated or expensive.
Some years ago, when my youngest son was nine months old, we learned that he was allergic to eggs, dairy products, peanuts and tree nuts. This was' at first' a difficult and frightening diagnosis, but it gave me inspiration to learn to cook for him and the family and then to write this book.
In the beginning, I would prepare something for my son and something else for the rest of the family. This got old fast.
I began by taking some of my grandmother's recipes and substituted allergy friendly ingredients for the offending ones. The results were fantastic and the foods were delicious. You can bring them to parties and gatherings and no one would guess that they are non-allergic. There are allergy free foods here that cannot be purchased in stores, such as cinnamon rolls, donuts, marshmallow fluff and sponge candy.
My purpose here is to make cooking for a family member with certain food allergies less intimidating. I hope all readers find some things in this book they can use and enjoy.
