Giveaway! Cybele Pascal’s Allergy-Free and Easy Cooking

If you or a loved one have allergies or an intolerance to gluten, wheat, dairy, eggs, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, and sesame, or if you know someone who does, Cybele Pascal’s newest cookbook Allergy-Free and Easy Cooking is for you!

All of the recipes are made without the eight most common allergens (sesame was a surprise to me – I had no idea!) and are simple to make, without using unusual ingredients or heavily relying on store-bought products that substitute for “the real thing”. Two recipes that immediately jumped out at me were the Homemade Gnocchi (page 47) and Mu Shu Pork (page 142). Allergy-Free and Easy Cooking is neatly organized into clear, concise categories and there is something for everyone, no matter what you could be allergic to. One particular category all families will love, especially those with young children, is Takeout at Home. There’s even a recipe for a gluten-free version of an In-N-Out Burger!

Dairy-Free and Egg-Free Vanilla or Chocolate Pudding

Last year I won a copy of Amy Green‘s cookbook, Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free in a giveaway that was hosted by Alta of Tasty Eats at Home. As I’ve shared and mentioned before here, I first met Amy when she was the hostess of the virtual recipe round-up Go Ahead Honey, It’s Gluten-Free! and later, as we got to know each other better, she invited me to guest post on her blog. Coincidentally enough, I’ll be sharing a recipe next Monday as part of the launch of a new website she and Maggie (She Let Them Eat Cake) have started called Balanced Platter.

This vanilla pudding, and its chocolate variation, is a simple and effortless recipe that you can easily pull together with few ingredients, most likely already in your fridge or pantry. As there are no eggs used, it’s also vegan. (Honey is used, whether or not it is vegan is a topic of debate, although you can use any sweetener of your choice and that you feel comfy with.)
