The Food Allergy Mama's Easy, Fast Family Meals
  • The Food Allergy Mama's Easy, Fast Family Meals

  • As the busy mother of five young children, Kelly Rudnicki faced a daily challenge when it came to feeding her family. Things got even more complicated when one of her sons was diagnosed with severe food allergies. Launching the Food Allergy Mama website, she struck a chord with parents and home cooks in similar situations and made it her mission to prove that allergen-free meals can be easy and flavorful. Showcasing the very best of Rudnicki's repertoire, The Food Allergy Mama's Easy, Fast Family Meals makes it simple to please a hungry crowd.

    Rudnicki purposely tests her recipes on friends and neighbors who don't have food allergies just to make sure her cooking tastes like "regular" cuisine. The result is a bounty of delicious offerings, including:

    Morning Glory Muffins
    Breakfast Burritos
    Creamy Tomato Soup
    Hearty Pasta Featuring Grandma Jeanne's Bolognese Sauce
    Oatmeal Fudge Bars

    All recipes are made without milk, butter, cheese, eggs, or nuts. She also includes time-saving tips, and ideas for inexpensive ingredient substitutions, including tofu and applesauce. Menu ideas and holiday celebrations make this book the most comprehensive guide of its kind-a one-stop resource for allergen-free, worry-free home cooking every day of the week.
