I got this book for a coworker who is a vegetarian from India. She eats eggs but her husband's family is very strict and does not. She was thrilled. She said she has been looking for a book like this for a long, long time that uses ingredients that she can actually find in a grocery store. So this book is not only great for the egg-allergic but for strict vegans too!

I can absolutely not say enough good things about this book! My 3 yr old daughter is allergic to eggs, milk, potatoes, bananas, and peanuts. I can't use the typical "egg substitute" that you buy at the store because it contains potato starch. And other egg substitutes often don't work with baked goods. However, this book uses regular ingredients that you can buy at most grocery stores.(I substitute soy-based products where dairy is present, i.e. milk, butter, yogurt.) But the kicker is--they taste pretty much the same as regular. In fact, for a couple of these recipes (the chocolate chip & the sugar cookies), my husband increduously asked me if these were safe for our daughter! :) I have made chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies, white cake, ginger cookies, and pumpkin bars. Every one of them tasted SO MUCH better than everything else I've tried. I've never had an allergy cookbook that I could find more than one or two recipes that worked right and tasted good (and that was after trying dozens). So far in this cookbook, I'm 5 for 5! If you have a egg-allergic child, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book.
