Food Allergy Friendly Baking: The Divvies Bakery Cookbook
Lori Sandler is the founder of Divvies Bakery and the author of the Divvies Bakery Cookbook. She's also a mom of a child with dairy, egg and nut allergies, so everything in her gourmet bakeshop and in the cookbook are free of those major allergens.
I've shopped the Divvies online store for holiday treats (their BingGo! chocolate bars rival a Hershey bar and make a great Halloween treat) and I was pleased to find Divvies cookies in our Walt Disney World hotel when we vacationed there recently. The candies and cookies are, in a word- YUM!
Recently I had the opportunity to check out Lori's new cookbook. It is filled with over 70 recipes designed for bake sales, class parties and at-home celebrations.
Flipping through the pages the first time, my eye instantly caught the "Oh Fudge" recipe...
"Oh Fantastic" is more like it! No one would ever guess this is a dairy-free fudge! It's super-easy to make and satisfies that daily (okay, hourly) chocolate craving.
We also tried "Your Favorite Applesauce" after apple-picking this week-end. This is another easy one. The smell of baked apples wafting through the house soon led everyone to the kitchen to try some of this treat.
"Andrea's Mom's Granola Bars" was another hit. The Craisins® and chocolate chips added just the right flavors to this bar recipe.
Most of the recipes in the book call for ingredients found in anyone's pantry. This is a great baking book to have on hand. And get one for Grandma too so she can make cake and cookies that are safe for her grandchildren and worry-free for you.
