Reviews - What do our customers think?
Refer to this cookbook often  May 2, 2007
Reviewed by Tammy Petty Conrad for Reader Views (4/07)

The cover shouts that this will be a fun cookbook to use, as well as a practical one. Imagine the families who have children with allergies or special dietary needs. It must be frustrating to try to adapt recipes for every meal on a regular basis. The authors of this book have done all the work for those parents. At the same time, they've created a book that anyone with kids will enjoy cooking with.

The authors start with a little background about how many suffer from food allergies and the type of symptoms which can occur. For us lucky parents who don't have to deal with this, it is eye-opening to consider how careful other parents have to be with every single thing that goes into their children's mouths. The authors are experienced chefs and educators who are adept at sharing information without boring their readers. This book is not just about recipes, but nutrition as well, including appropriate substitutions for each possible culprit in the pantry.

Recipes are included for every meal as well as snacks, desserts and drinks. Through a combination of pictures, each recipe notes what substitutes can be made for potential allergens like dairy, gluten and eggs. A complete nutritional guide is also included. My son was eager to try the corn dogs, his favorite menu choice at the fine dining establishments we frequent. The recipes are printed in an easy-to-read format so children can use it as well as adults. This was my first attempt at making corn dogs however, and I found it difficult to wrap the hot dog pieces in the dough. It could be that my cornmeal was not ground fine enough. They tasted good even if they weren't restaurant quality!

Our next attempt was the Sticky Cinnamon Buns which required the Biscuit Dough recipe too. While I wouldn't attempt this on a weekday morning, I didn't mind rolling out the dough on a lazy Saturday afternoon for my Sunday breakfast. Next we'd like to try Pizza Soup and Pancake Paint. You'll have to buy the book if you want to know what to do with the paint!

Todd Adelman and Jodi Behrend also included an extensive resource list in the back for parents to look up more information for their children's issues. I would recommend "Special Foods for Special Kids" to anyone with children or food allergies. You never know when you might have one of your children's friends over who is allergic to gluten. Or you have to take cupcakes to school and you can't include peanuts. Keep this cookbook handy and refer to it often. Remember there is always something cooking in the kitchen, but it doesn't have to make your children sick.
easy & practical cookbook  May 7, 2006
My son is allergic to dairy, peanuts, eggs, wheat and gluten - I love this cookbook because it recognizes that different kids have different allergies. If the recipe calls for eggs and you need to use egg replacer, it tells you what you need to do to make the recipe work with the egg replacer (like mixing it with rice or soy milk for one recipe, adding some club soda in another). I have enjoyed making typical kid foods, like mac-n-cheese, that are safe for my son and taste good.
Helpful  Mar 16, 2006
While this book is not exactly what I was looking for because my child is on a rotary/rotation diet, it's a good resource for parents with children allergic or sensitive to wheat and/or gluten, milk and/or eggs. There are substitutions given for each of these as needed for every recipe, conveniently located on the same page.
This cookbook sucks for multiple food allergies....  Jul 13, 2005
The format of this book is aweful. Essentially what they've done is to write normal recipes and then list the substitutions at the bottom. I can do this without their help. What I wanted was a thoughtful well written and kitchen tested set of recipes that worked for mulitple food allergies. I made the chocolate chip cookies using their substitutions for wheat, milk and eggs, "baked sand castle bars" would have been a better name for them. If I'm going to eat a gritty cookie, it better come with a prize like a diamond or an orgasim. Nobody who tasted that recipe would have ever published it.
A little disappointed  Jun 6, 2002
I was expecting more recipes and was hoping for more quick and easy recipes for my peanut, milk and egg allergic 3 year old. Some of the recipes are too time consuming or require specialty items. Since my child is very picky, I have wasted so much food in the past so I am hesitant to spend time and money on some of these recipes. I was looking for more simple ideas for 3 meals utilizing simpler and faster ingrediants.
