Summary:

This is the perfect reference for my kitchen, and our Top Pick for new cookbooks in 2013. It’s filled with Everyday Staples, from homemade Coconut Milk Yogurt to Tasty Skillet Suppers that my whole family adores. All recipes are dairy-free, gluten-free, egg-free, and soy-free.

If I were to pick one new dairy-free cookbook for gifting this holiday season (yes, there is time!), it would be Everyday Classics by Alexa Croft.

Everyday Classics: 68 Tasty and Essential Recipes

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 …

Lunch & Dinner (Stroganoff pictured)

Everyday Classics - Stroganoff 2

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!

For a Discount: Everyday Classics is available on Amazon.

    We are not gluten free (or should I say do not need to be) but I wanted to try the recipes. Like you said… totally not cardboard! They are delicious. My fear of trying foods with ‘substitutions’ like these is gone. My kids love the treats in the book and I feel much better using other ingredients they normally would not eat. Loving this new book!
