Absolutely loved the book! The recipes are easy, tasty and quick to make. The Blueberry Muffin recipe is exceptional and my kids love it. The vegetable pate gets rave reviews whenever I make it for company or just the family. I would strongly recommend this book to not only people with food allergies but anyone looking for some great healthy alternatives.
This cookbook is the first one we reach for on our shelf as all the recipes we've tried are easy and delicious.
Love the layout of the book, I find it makes it each recipe clear to understand and quick to put together.
There are certain food groups, like dairy, gluten, corn and sugar that my family and I steer clear from. This cookbook offers a variety of choices so that we can eat meals that agree with our bodies! For that age old question - what's for dinner tonight? - this cookbook is full of great options.
