Rating based on personal gain rather than as a critique of the book.

I have Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS). Your body confuses proteins in common produce for proteins in pollens you're allergic to. For example, I'm allergic to ragweed. I tested negative for banana allergy, but when I eat a raw banana (or as most people think of it, a banana), I feel throat-punched and my airways are raw. I can eat cooked bananas. Cooking alters the protein.

You may have OAS if you have pollen allergies. I have a lo

I requested and received this book from Netgalley for my honest review.

wow,what an amazingly well though out and organised book.
I am a person who has lived with a gluten intolerance for over 10 years and this book had some things in it that I wish I had known before now. Very informative.
The layout is absolutely stunning, just the way a recipe book should be. I always want to be wowed by the pages and with this I certainly was. I will be telling all my friends with allergies about this book. M

Requires four separate custom flour blends—though it does recommend some commercial blends you can use instead—but it also has a lot of information about substitutions for wheat flour, dairy products, and eggs.

The book covers pantry staples like mayo and non-dairy milks, as well as breakfast, breads, pasta, sides, snacks, crackers, cookies, candies, and meals for the freezer. It's comfort food and standards like marinara sauce, pizza, fajitas, chicken tenders, pancakes. Nothing fancy and nothing

**I received this book from netgalley in exchange for an honest review**

Years ago (a little more than a decade ago, actually) I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease, this was right at the cusp of it (and other food allergies) becoming what seems like an epidemic. At this time trying to find food I could eat was a nightmare, the selection at most stores was overpriced, small, and usually pretty nasty tasting. My various attempts at cooking were also usually disastrous because finding a reliable cook

Not everyone can understand what it's like to have to cook and bake with a long list of restrictions. Colette Martin, however, is someone who can understand what it's like to lose a whole series of staple foods, snacks, and treats, and in her books, she helps reader find their "new normal". I love that she provides substitutions for those who cannot use flax as an egg substitute, because that is a particularly tough allergen to avoid, when also avoiding so many other allergens. One can feel so l ...more

Perfect for the parent who has limited cooking skills and looking to avoid a specific allergen like gluten. If you know how to cook already or are doing something more strict like AIP or GAPS I'd skip this. Nothing too fancy here. I'd like to think they were going for kid friendly fare?

I almost gave it 3 stars because many of the recipes are almost to simple to need a book (but we all need to start somewhere, so I'm going to cut some slack here), white sugar is in a lot of recipes, but my bigge

This book is a lifesaver! Such a great resource! I use these recipes all the time and also learned to do lots of new allergy friendly cooking tricks for other recipes.
