My favorite allergy friendly cookbook! You may have to adjust the temp & bake time

This is my favorite gluten free/allergen friendly cookbook (I have 15)! My family is gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and we can't have seafood either. I've done 38 of the recipes in this cookbook, many of which are now in my family's regular rotation. My family has loved nearly all of them. The layout is fantastic (but, note to to the publisher, the fractions should be a larger font size.) The photo recipe index in the back is genius!! A lot of the kitchen tips and tricks were helpful as was some of the information about ingredients and resources! I do have a few tips if you do get this book. The most important one has to do with elevation. I lived in Bend (the author is from Bend). The elevation there is 3,623 ft. So if you are from a high elevation area do not hesitate to get this cookbook right now, it's perfect for you. When I first moved to Bend I was frustrated because all of my favorite recipes turned out dry or burnt and I had to adjust everything. I now live in Salem. My elevation is 781 ft at my house. That's a big difference in elevation! If you know anything about baking and elevation then you know they don't turn out the same in high and low elevation! This doesn't mean you shouldn't get this book!! On the contrary...you just have to adjust some things. Make sure you have an oven thermometer. I have to add 25 degrees to the stated baking temp for any baked good and watch my cooking time (most of the time it has to come out of the oven a bit earlier.) i.e. For the double trouble chocolate chip cookies (which are AMAZING) I cook them at 375 degrees F for 9 minutes. I have to add a bit more liquid to some baked goods as well (i.e. I use a few more tablespoons liquid for scones). My simplest tip is for the flour tortillas. I use an ice cream scoop to measure my tortillas (this way they're all about the same size) and clear plastic wrap. The clear plastic wrap lets you see the shape as you're rolling it and doesn't crease your tortillas as easily the more tortillas you roll. Don't be afraid to adjust the seasonings in recipes! Not everyone likes things the same. Some of our favorites are: scones, batter mix (fantastic chicken nuggets, fried veggies, etc), corn dogs (my daughter's favorite), pizza crust (use a baking stone and parchment paper instead of a pan if you want it extra crunchy on the bottom), flour tortillas, easy beans, famous mashed potatoes, taco seasoning, chocolate chip cookies & double trouble chocolate chip cookies (if you love chocolate, this is the VERY BEST....Seriously...the VERY BEST). I still have a lot more to try out, but this cookbook is wonderful!

The ultimate allergy-free cook book - must have for ppl dealing with food insensitivities!

I recently saw a naturopath who recommended a gluten-, rice-, soy-, corn-, dairy-free diet to help put my ulcerative colitis into remission. Initially, I was frozen and didn't know what I would be able to eat. With the help of Tammy's book, I found hundreds of great recipes to replace or alter some of my favorite meals. Her recipes range from extremely simple (short preparation, minimal ingredients) to more complex dishes. She has helped me become more creative for re-imagining some of my own recipes - especially with her sauce recipes. The one drawback for me (which probably wouldn't apply to a lot of people) is the extensive list of baked goods. I'm not a big sweets fan and don't crave muffins, etc. but for someone looking to replace gluten-filled desserts this cookbook is your bible.

    Not fond of paperbacks, I wasn't sure I would like this book. But it is so well put together that I'm glad now that I made the decision to try it. The pictures are beautiful and lentiful. Even the index in the back includes a picture with each recipe, rather than just a list as most cookbooks offer. I cannot imagine not being happy with this purchase.

    Best cookbook I have found!

    I have enjoyed every recipe I've tried from this book - and there are so many. Favorites include the sandwich bread, yeast free rolls, English muffins, and the different chicken dinner recipes. English muffins are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside - really! I'm looking forward to baking the scones next.

    Amazing Cookbook

    I have purchased 4 of these cookbooks for friends and family. I love it. Do not hesitate to buy even if you are not suffering from allergies as we are. It is great for everyone just to eat healthy.

    My mom made of the ice cream recipes from this book tonight, and it is AMAZING! I don't miss the sugar filled regular ice cream at all! I would definitely recommend this cookbook to anyone with a food allergy, and even to those without! I love all the pictures it has in it, as well as extremely simple instructions. A must have for every kitchen.

    Lots of variety!

    I've been following the Paleo diet for almost four months, and I'm always on the look-out for ways to strike a balance between what I'm eating and what the rest of my family will eat. This cookbook is filled with lots of good ideas that will bridge the gap for my family, and also allow me to release my inner baker in a way that quietly sets my family closer to the path I'd like us to head down together. Shh! Don't tell them I'll be feeding them healthy food.

    Great book for anyone with food allergies

    When I found out that our family was plagued with food allergies I was completely overwhelmed. This book gave me great meals and information, I am now using this book to plan our weekly meal plan and it have given me new hope that we will still be eating delicious food!!

    Love It!

    It has already been said, but I love that this cookbook covers all of our allergies! We aren't just gluten free, but dairy and soy as well. This cookbook makes it easy. We've been menu planning with this book and have made 4 things already--loved them all! Tonight we are making another recipe from it... :) I highly recommend this cookbook!
