If you haven’t visited her delicious blog, Lexie’s Kitchen, then you haven’t yet seen the full potential of food allergy-friendly cooking. And her website is just a preview of the perfect recipes in this beautiful cookbook.
As you can see by the cover, all of the recipes within Everyday Classics are gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free AND soy-free. But trust me, this isn’t a cookbook on how to make cardboard. It is an amazing collection of those everyday recipes we all love, including …
Breakfast (Soaked Grain Waffles pictured)
Lunch & Dinner (Stroganoff pictured)
Sweet Treats (Brownies pictured)
and Everyday Staples (No Dairy Nacho Cheese pictured)
And there is so much more recipe goodness in this cookbook … Alexa’s famous Coconut Milk Yogurt, No-Peanuts Butter, Tortillas, Biscuits & Gravy, Chicken Pot Pie, Chili Mac Skillet, Strawberry Cheesecake, Vanilla Cupcakes … I could go on and on. Basically tons of family-friendly (my niece let out an “ooh and ah” with nearly every turn of the page) and relatively easy recipes, with clear instructions, an ingredient primer, and a food allergen reference chart right in the front of the book.
To note, since this is a gluten-free cookbook, there are some specialty flours and grains used, such as millet, teff, brown rice, and garbanzo. Nonetheless, many of the recipes are applicable to anyone eating dairy-free – and why not trial some new flours? I’ve made several of Alexa’s recipes, and the results are heavenly!
