What's to Eat? - The Milk-Free, Egg-Free, Nut-Free Food Allergy Cookbook

What's to Eat? The Milk-Free, Egg-Free, Nut-Free Food Allergy Cookbook
Our two boys have been diagnosed with food-induced eczema.  This would be a breeze if they would just both be allergic to the same foods.  But, alas, we have a varied array of non-overlapping allergies.  The main culprits are eggs, nuts, and dairy.   What a blessing to this mother to find the book What's to Eat? - The Milk-Free, Egg-Free, Nut-Free Food Allergy Cookbook. 

The day I received the book in the mail I sat down and read the cookbook, cover to cover.  Desperate to find a solution to dinner (and other meals), I was pleasantly amazed to read over 100 recipes for salads, soups, main dishes, breads, side dishes, and desserts.  In addition, there are some suggested menus for special occasions.

Finally, I can plan a menu we can all enjoy without planning two or three meals per meal time.  The ingredients are not obscure, and they are either in my kitchen already or I have seen them in my supermarket on a regular basis.  For the next four days, I have set up a menu from the recipes in the book and have made a list of seven ingredients that I do not already have in my pantry, mostly herbs. 

I am looking forward to testing these recipes and finding a freedom in our meal plans that does not include stops at the local fast food restaurant.  In our home we can begin to eat our way - every day!
