Pure Delicious - More than 150 Delectable Allergan Free Recipes by Heather Christo - 5 Stars!

Wow this author really did her work when it comes to allergies!  I found out a few things about myself that I hadn't realized were causing me problems.  She rose to the occasion in helping herself and her daughter and then laid out great recipes that almost melt in your mouth right off the pages!  The pictures are beautiful and they are very flavorful with some substitutions provided in case you need to change the recipe.  I found a  couple of recipes that will be made in my kitchen for years to come!  I do wish she hadn't included so much coconut oil, milk or flour in her recipes, she has kind of jumped on that band wagon and I'm allergic to that. I will have to experiment with some substitutions for those ingredients, but I'm sure I can work that out.  Everyone seems to be using coconut everything these days.  It is a common thing these days everyone seems to be turning to coconut these days.  It isn't a nut it's a fruit but I'm allergic to  it.  Wish I wasn't. The very smell of the stuff makes my head hurt. : )

The description as found on Good Reads: As a chef, former caterer, and much-loved food blogger, Heather Christo’s life revolves around food, so when she and her daughters were diagnosed with severe food allergies, she thought her life—and career—were over. With ingredients like gluten, dairy, nuts, and even cane sugar and black pepper permanently off the menu, Heather had to teach herself to cook all over again. Much to her surprise, however, she discovered that taking control of her family’s diet and wellness led to a new sense of empowerment, bringing her family closer together than ever before while permanently banishing the ill health that had been their “normal” for years.

I received this book through "Blogging for Books" in exchange for an honest review.
