Meet the Author

Known as one of the "pioneers" in the food allergy world, Linda Coss is the author of three popular food allergy books, including two dairy-, egg- and nut-free food allergy cookbooks and "How to Manage Your Child's Life-Threatening Food Allergies: Practical Tips for Everyday Life."

When Linda's oldest son (now a young adult) was first diagnosed with life-threatening food allergies in 1991, this was an extremely uncommon and almost unknown condition. Few resources were available, the internet didn't really exist, manufacturers were not required to list all ingredients on food packages, and no one was familiar with the concept of "cross-contamination." It was her experiences in learning to care for - and cook for - her son that motivated Linda to take action to help others.

At a time when there were no suitable cookbooks available, Linda started creating recipes as a way to meet her own family's needs. When family and friends started raving about the delicious dishes she created, she realized her recipes could help other families as well. Linda's first cookbook, "What's to Eat? The Milk-Free, Egg-Free, Nut-Free Food Allergy Cookbook," has since become a classic in the world of food allergy cooking. Her second cookbook, "What Else is to Eat? The Dairy-, Egg- and Nut-Free Food Allergy Cookbook," provides another collection of delicious recipes that are all completely free of dairy, egg, peanut and tree nut ingredients.

Linda's recipe-creation mantra has always been to focus on cooking fabulous foods that do not happen to contain any milk products, eggs, peanuts or nuts. No cheese-less cheesecake, egg-less omelets or recipes based on "weird" ingredients. Just wonderful meals and desserts that can be served to family and guests with pride.

A former food allergy support group leader with 13 years of experience helping local parents navigate the food allergy maze, Linda currently stays involved with the food allergy world through social media channels. She lives in Southern California, where she works as a freelance marketing copywriter.

Both of my children have EoE and multiple food allergies. The introduction of this cookbook will ring true to anyone dealing with multiple food allergies and it will encourage you. You will see that you are not alone. "What am I supposed to cook for dinner? And how about breakfast, lunch, and dessert, for that matter?" I have a huge collection of allergy cookbooks but this book is the one I ALWAYS come back to. When I first discovered that food allergies were a way of life I was overwhelmed. The allergy docs, GI docs, and nutritionists were no help at all. All they do is tell you what not to eat and that is no help. This books saved me and quickly became the foundation of all that I cook. After 6+ years of use the binding has finally broke and, despite all of my efforts, pages have gone missing. I am ordering another copy today because I NEED this cookbook. It is extremely easy to use (I'm no chef!!!!) and under each recipe she gives you a little personal note that makes this cookbook 100% more useful then your typical "allergy free" cookbook. This is a realistic, simple, everyday cookbook.  From one mother to another - you can do this!!! Allergies are not the end of the world. Thank you Ms. Coss - you saved my sanity and you always have an answer to the now not so scary question of, "What's for dinner?"

Wow! An entire book full of delicious recipes -- and all of them are completely safe for my food-allergic child! Dinners, desserts, everything. Plus -- unlike with some of the other food allergy cookbooks on my shelf-- I can honestly say that so far every recipe from this book that I have tried has turned out great. As a busy single mother I also appreciate how quick and easy these dishes are to make. I highly recommend 'What's to Eat?'
