Learning to bake allergen-free by Colette Martin : I won this book from firstreads on this site goodreads. I was very happy I won this because my niece has a gluten allergy and cannot have a lot of things, and this book is a godsend for her. These recipes are amazing I can hardly believe they are allergen free! So I recommend this to anyone who struggles with having such allergies that prevent them from being able to enjoy every day food loves and cravings. Thank you Colette for coming up with s ...more

This is an excellent reference for anyone who deals with food allergies.
I'm no stranger when it comes to food allergies - I'm not only a nutritionist concentrating in special dietary needs like celiac and allergies, but I'm also someone who has problems eating everyday foods (not the least being dairy, eggs, and nuts). For me, and most of the people I speak with, finding safe food can become a chore that isn't always a tasty one. The most significant challenges are generally when finding or making baked goods without gluten - that don't taste like cardboard. Colette ...more

great advice for making substitutions (and avoiding big mistakes--the potential for clumpiness is good to know about the xantham gum!) Also a nice assortment of recipes for baked goods--muffins and cakes, pizzas and sandwich bread.
I am looking for a vegan cookbook and have found that allergen-free cookbooks are actually far more inventive than standard vegan cookbooks. A bit like a text book with lots of information interspersed in the recipes, but it has great explanations for various substitutions, which was an excellent introduction to the concept of vegan baking. Recipes aren't quite as appealing to me, tho: basic breads, a few basic cookies. Many recipes use Egg Replacer and Earth Balance Shortening, though a handful ...more
This book is designed for parents baking for their allergen-free children. I don't have children but me and my husband have to eat gluten free so I found it very helpful. It's not just a cookbook. It contains valuable information about allergies and how to make recipes work with lots of substitutions. The recipes look very delicious and simple. I can't wait to try some.
This book if filled to the brim with helpful and good to know information! The perect book for anyone with allergies or even someone who wants more options than the regular grocery store fare. A wonderful source to have on hand!

In our family we have many allergies. A top notch cookbook eliminating gluten, dairy, eggs, soy and nuts. Also addresses using existing over the counter gluten free mixes. Very informative.
I don't like the recipes (since I also avoid corn, soy and rice) but I like all the cooking tips and pages marked "Crash Course." I learned a lot about baking powder and eggs.
This cookbook has some good information for allergen-free cooking. There were a few recipes that I would want to try but not enough to purchase the book.
Way to many recipes using shortening ... no thank you.
