    oh I am so in! *raising hand frantically* I’d love to try one recipe in each section if you want. I’ll try anything. I’d love to.

    (my husband is deathly allergic to bananas, avocados, kiwi, chestnuts and passion fruit, we do not bring these items in the house and therefore I do not and cannot cook with any of them, so send me something else).

No wheat or yeast (includes vinegars, mushrooms, etc.), no strawberries or walnuts, no safflower or peanuts.

I’m a home schooling mom so it might be a fun project for my 14 and 16 yr. old daughters to help with. I’m sure we’d have plenty of taste testers in the family to add their thoughts, too:). Out of the eleven children we’ve been blessed with there are six still living at home.

    I already love your recipes so I would love to make some more. My husband teases me that I am really good at following a recipe, exactly. Now that I have a blog I have been loosening up, but the instincts to follow the directions exactly, are still there!
    I eat everything except gluten. My husband is a lacto-ovo veggie, so no meat, poultry or fish. But I could test a meat recipe just for myself if that helps. Just let me know.

    Hi, I have just recently stumbled upon your blog looking for recipes that would cater to a dietary detox prescribed by my naturopath. The detox was for me but of course my family is forced to tag along. My kids were thrilled that I found some “yummy type” recipes. The detox is now complete but I am still trying to restrict gluten and fasting from sugar. I would be very interested in testing some of your recipes. We have no food allergies in our household and live in Canada so some specific brands may not be available. Thanks for the variety!

    @Michelle, Hi Michelle – So nice to meet you :) I am allergic to eggs the yolk and the white along with other allergies. Missing eggs and having so many failures with baking bread has been a bummer. I can’t use flax either, so my only options I know of is chia seed or fruit puree – seems to work ok for 1 egg, but GF recipes seem to rely heavily on eggs. My doc said perhaps I could try duck eggs, but that really doesn’t appeal to me because I feel they are probably greasy…

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend, be well

I have had several tests, one being the ALCAT and one is IGG (not to be confused with the IGE that allergists do…the IGG measures immune reaction 24-72 hours later instead of reaction within 24 hours) Both tests said I could not have egg yolks or whites. I have reacted to over 100 foods in the past and began to wonder if it was me or the foods. The answer seems to be both. I have immune diseases so I can’t take a very high toxic load and begin to react. The cleaner my diet the less reaction over time (as long as I’m not having a flare up from my immune diseases) Anyhow, the eggs are able to absorb anything they come in contact with once they are processed (all commercially sold eggs ARE processed, even organic) because the protective outer membrane over the shell is destroyed. Eggs are very porous and absorb anything they come in contact with after that…. I believe that most commercial eggs are sprayed with agents that disinfect them and who knows what else. (it’s been awhile since I read up on it) Anyhow, I even react to meat that isn’t fed organic feed and sometimes just grain fed meats. I didn’t think the farm eggs would be okay, but I don’t react AT ALL even though they are primarily grain fed (it is organic, and the chickens are allowed to roam and forage all day long.. this allows them to eat bugs and other things that give them more complete nutrition without supplementing them with harmful things) anyhow, I hope my story can help someone. I have been down that road of trying to bake egg free and it is very hard. If I find any good recipes I will share them! I think I had a few that were decent. By the way, you can sub ground chia seeds for flax. It works the same way! :D take care, Michelle

    forgot to mention- duck eggs aren’t greasy. There are very much like chicken eggs! The farm where we buy our milk (not the same place we get our eggs though b/c they are more expensive..) sells eggs and regularly adds duck eggs whenever they come across them and all of the other customers love them :)

    I would love to try recipes. My husband and I have 5 kids and we are Gluten, corn, soy, and dairy free and eat as low sugar as possible (I use stevia, date sugar, agave,palm sugar, and OCCASIONALLY organic sucanat and cane sugar. I am able to make substitutions if necessary and can record the exact differences if need be. I am very interested to learn of your cookbook-in- the-making. We need more ideas and recipes that fit our needs so thank you for what you are doing!

    @Michelle,I know it wasn’t the IgE testing – my naturopath did the blood testing – it was US BioTek – it had me as highly reactive to eggs, yolks and whites. Thank you for telling me about the duck eggs, I might just look and see if I can find some. She said to try them fried or scrambled style for a few days and lay off them and then see how I feel. Thanks Michelle for your encouraging words. God bless, lori

    my naturopath did my blood testing too, and I was highly reactive as well…. US Biotek is the the other major lab that does the same testing as ALCAT. The test show a reaction, but not a reason. Even my naturopath didn’t know why I was so reactive, and I have had the test done 3 times and evertytime my list was different but huge. So I started looking into WHY I might be so reactive… my immune system has a lot to do with it, but the quality of the food matters. I am reactive to dairy but I can have raw milk. I am reactive to eggs, but can have farm fresh eggs. Seems to do with the processing of the foods or something… anyhow, I will see what recipes I can find. don’t give up! If I were you, I might try farm fresh eggs if you are willing to try so you can have that freedom… I never thought I’d touch eggs again. God’s blessings to you and prayers on your food journey. I know it is a long road…..

    @Michelle, thanks Michelle for the great suggestions. I think Monday I’ll call my ND to be retested. Its been about 8 months. Then after the testing I’ll see what it shows and I will try your suggestions gradually try organic direct from the farmer eggs and see what happens. I know I can’t use gluten I break out with the horrible celiac rash don’t even want to cheat on that one! I can give up the dairy, soy, almonds, nuts – the eggs are the toughie. Be well, Have a good evening,

    Lori- I wish you the best! I also would never cheat on the gluten, or try it ever again. I have learned that the hard way! Still don’t do corn and soy… and when my immune system is being nasty I avoid ALL dairy. I am sick right now but can still eat the EGGS! :D I am very excited for this. BTW- what does your rashes look like? I get rashes that no one seems to be able to diagnose… they come on when my immune system is taxed. Starts by attacking a joint with inflammation (usually my wrists or hands) then the skin gets really thin and delicate and any movement causes it to burst open and I look like I am covered with deep paper cuts. They bleed and get very sore. When the inflammation leaves and I am on the mend, I get a layer of scaly skin over everything and the cuts heal up. Are your rashes anything like that? I avoid gluten like the plague though so it would have to be another trigger as the cause…hmmmm….. so much to think about. I hope you are able to eat eggs eventually…. I must say I am very thankful for it and hope that I can continue to do so! take care :)

    well count me in amongst the horde who has volunteered to slave away for you :) i can test anything you need-if it doesn’t fit my sister’s requirements, then it can be for me-ha! and america’s test kitchen does do the same secrecy thing- i always feel like i am getting away with something cooking not yet published recipes.:) congrats on the book-can’t wait to own them all.

    I recently found your blog and I’m so glad you’re working on a cookbook!
    I don’t know if you need a newbie to the SSGF way of cooking but if you do I’d love to be a tester!

    I adore cooking and like trying new, healthy things but the hubby is not, so if you need a picky-eater perspective we’ve got you covered.

    Wow – you are loved – look at all those folks who want to try recipes!

    I would love to, as long as it is dairy free and preferably low in soy. Other than that, we’ll eat anything! :)

    Congrats again on your cookbook – I can’t wait to see it in real life!

    I would be thrilled to be a recipe tester. Both I and my 4 yo are gluten free and I am always trying new recipes. My 4 year old daughter just told me the other that she thinks Grandma found me in the Williams Sonoma catalog when I was a baby. “Why?” I asked. “Because you are always in the kitchen or looking at cookbooks.” she tells me. At least she thinks the food I make is good! :)

    My family would love to help test recipes. Your dessert recipes have been bit hits around here, as well as the granola bars, hummus and chicken tortilla soup.
    We have a 12-year-old with Celiac and a 7-year-old with type-one diabetes. It was such a blessing to find recipes that were good for both boys.
    Our entire family have enjoyed your recipes.
    Thank you so much!

    Looks like you probably have enough, but if you still need more, I’d love to test! WE don’t have any restrictions and I have a four year old who would definitely give you his honest opinion. :)

    I would LOVE to be a tester. In addition to the gluten-free and sugar-free, I am also dairy-free and chocolate-free (allergic to chocolate-don’t feel bad, just means there’s more for you ;-) . Oh, and no yeast…yep, I think that’s it…oh, and no vinegar…NOW, I’m really done :-)

    I missed out on being your tester but have been following your site for ages
    for ages & love your recipes. I’m pregnant in my first trimester & at first I was panicked about how would I meet all the nutrition needs with my allergies? !
    There was no need to worry though, all your meals are so healthy & nutritious, I didn’t have to make any changes at all :) I am hoping that I can be one of the first ones to put my hand up to buy your book please. Can you tell me when & where will it be available? Thank you!
