Congratulations, Chrissy! I had a sneak peek in the development phase of this cookbook and it's wonderful-- recipes are great and with Chrissy's fantastic camera skills the food looks like it will jump right off the page. So excited for this cookbook... as a family with no allergies it is sometimes difficult to come up with alternatives that the whole family will enjoy. Wonderful vision!

I am so excited for Chrissy! I know the amount of hard work and passion she put into this cookbook! I have been anxiously awaiting it's publication after trying one of her recipes and LOVING it! My daughter's best friend has a nut allergy and also carries an epipen with her. So I am not only loving this cookbook to have for myself when she visits, but am recommending it to her mother as well! Congratulations Chrissy! Wishing you a huge success on your new venture!

This is fantastic! It is late now but I cannot wait to tell my peanut allergic daughter in the morning. She was just telling me today she wants to open a bakery/donut shop that is free of the eight major allergens. She is 8 but she has already found food allergies to be her passion. We will be at the book signing!
