Friends! I cannot wait to introduce you to a sweet friend of mine, Debbie Adler! She is a wonderful advocate for those seeking to live a healthy and allergy-friendly lifestyle and a chef extraordinaire to boot.
This is Debbie and I at an Austin Gluten-Free Fest a couple of years ago.
One of the things that makes Debbie so charming is that she is simply a down-to-earth mom of a child with food allergies. She saw a need and she decided to meet it head on. I think so many parents of children with food allergies can relate to that statement, but Debbie took it to a whole new level. The difference for me is that I don’t have Debbie’s mad cooking and baking skills, so I am doubly thankful she authored Sweet, Savory & Free and Sweet Debbie’s Organic Treats Allergy-Free & Vegan Recipes.
If you are new to my blog, be sure to check out my previous review of Debbie’s cookbook, Sweet Debbie’s Organic Treats Allergy-Free & Vegan Recipes. This cookbook is a treasure for those with a sweet tooth that still want to keep things healthy and allergy-friendly. And if you are close to the Los Angeles area, you can visit Sweet Debbie’s Organic Cupcakes in person.
But for today, I am reviewing Debbie’s latest cookbook, Sweet, Savory & Free. The book includes dozens of delicious plant-based recipes that are free of wheat/gluten, eggs, dairy, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, added sugars, and oil. Her recipes include breakfast dishes, soups, muffin tin meals, main dishes, breads, and even a few sweets.

By simply reading the introduction to the book, the reader can feel her passion for this healthy lifestyle bleed through every word on the page. Continue reading
