The Food Allergy Cookbook Review and Giveaway!!!

Yummy recipes minus the gluten, dairy and many other common allergies? Yes! With The Food Allergy Cookbook you can get just that. The recipes are easy to follow and delicious. The layout of the book is very organized and includes some rarely found chapters on menus for specific events like winter and spring holiday and Thanksgiving. I absolutely love when my cookbooks have beautiful pictures to go along with the recipes. With The Food Allergy Cookbook, I was not disappointed. The pictures really helped me to envision what my dish should come out looking like.

My favorite recipes were the simple roasted potatoes, salmon with minty mustard, quirky coleslaw and the coconut creme brulee. Creme brulee is my FAVORITE dessert, and I love the taste of coconut, so naturally I loved this recipe.

I love that this book not only includes great recipes but also other wonderful resources including kitchen tips and tips for traveling with food allergies. Finally, the book also includes a list of helpful websites and books.



A Guide to Living with Allergies

and Entertaining with Healthy, Delicious Meals

By Carmel Nelson and Amra Ibrisimovic

Are you turning down social gatherings that revolve around food? Skipping lunch with your co-workers to avoid an awkward explanation? Deserting the dinner table on holidays so you don’t have to reject Aunt Sally’s home-cooked meal? . . . Or are you the one playing host to your friends, some of whom may have food allergies? The husband who lit all the candles, and turned up the Barry White, but doesn’t know exactly what’s safe to cook for a romantic dinner? For all of you, here is your resource to make alternative dining easy and understandable! Don’t let restricted options consume the joys of cooking! Say “NO!” to cardboard-flavored daily sustenance and brick-hard bread that would be more useful in constructing a house than actually eating. If you or someone you love has food allergies but is passionate about the culinary arts, this is the book for you! The Food Allergy Cookbook contains 101 delectable recipes tested to perfection. Each and every recipe is accompanied by an irresistible, full-length and in color photograph that will make you salivate before even whipping up the treat! The joint authors, Carmel Nelson and Amra Ibrisimovic, are among the millions of people struggling with food allergies. Over the years, their friendship has fostered support for one another as they discover new ways to live and eat enjoyably. They were disappointed by the lack of resources available on food allergies when they needed it the most, only a few years ago. Now that they are both in the know, they want to share their knowledge with you! The Food Allergy Cookbook caters to those with dairy, wheat, oats, barley, soy, and corn allergies. It shows that you don’t have to give up your favorites, just alter them! It even comes with a special recipe for a flour mixture to do just that. There are every-day recipes plus entire meal plans for holidays so you don’t have to forfeit entertaining or being a guest. Instead, prepare a to-die-for meal that everyone will love! Don’t be surprised if they ask for the recipe!
