Since her own allergy diagnosis and the creation of her baking business, people consistently turn up their noses and ask Elizabeth Gordon: “Well then, what do you eat?” People newly diagnosed with food allergies often ask themselves the same thing. And the foods they miss most? Their childhood favorites. The Complete Allergy-Free Comfort Foods Cookbook outlines entrée, sides, and desserts that hark back to simpler times.
This book brings such time-honored foods and flavors back into the lives of those with the most common food allergies and sensitivities—those with celiac disease or lactose and/or soy intolerance, and those following a gluten-free or casein-free diet, as well as those allergic to eggs and/or nuts. Its more than 100 delicious recipes are easy enough to make any night of the week. They include: Banana Bread, Buffalo Wings, Chicken Soft Tacos, Shredded Pork Sandwiches, Risotto Primavera, Pizza, Rosemary Smashed Potatoes, Twinkies, and Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Elizabeth Gordon is the author of Allergy-Free Desserts and the owner of the online gluten, dairy, soy, nut and egg-free bakery, Betsy & Claude Baking Co. A full-time mother and formerly an eating disorder therapist, Elizabeth has appeared on The Doctors and her work has been featured in many national media outlets, such as SELF magazine.
