What are some of your favorite cookbooks? I am starting a collection and would like to know your 'must-have' suggestions.

Thanks.

I have the Food Allergy News Cookbook and find it good.
My son is milk, egg and peanut allergic.
Susan, I wonder if Chapters carries the Milk free, egg free, and nut free cookbook. Are there a lot of great recipes in there?

I searched through Amazon for allergy cookbooks and e-maied a short list to my mom as an example of what I wanted for Christmas. :D
I love the internet!
As our dd has mik and egg allergies, I can often substiute something for the egg or milk product. I just want simple, fast, child friendly foods.

I no longer buy allergy cookbooks. Instead, I buy regular cookbooks that interest me. Russian cookbooks, Indian cookbooks, Ethiopian, etc. South Indian food, in particular, is quite easy to make gluten-free and dairy-free. Russian food is easy to make soy-free. I just find cuisines that appeal and go from there.

I buy cookbooks that interest me.
I have learned to leave somethings out of the reciepe or to put other stuff into the recipe.
A lot of my books are really old, as I have the annoying food additive anaphylaxis and can not use lots of products because of this.
I make catsup, bread, cookies,our dinners,pasta etc. because of this.
I even make juice.

One of my many projects is to make a cookbook of dd's favourite recipes for her Grandmothers so that they can make fod that she can enjoy.

I have some handwrittten books (0ld) and now I update them still.
Mine were not very fancy, but I have seen ones done in a style like a photo album.
It looked very nice.

All the handmade products described here sound really great.

Are there good recipe websites?

There are tons of good recipe websites. I happen to like the various recipes at http://www.ivu.org/

Most of the time, though, I go to a search engine and type in something like arugula tahini recipe or "bitter melon" recipe -pork -beef. I find Google returns enough results that I usually find something, whether it's a house recipe from a bed & breakfast, a recipe from FoodTV, or something on someone's own website. I almost always include the word recipe, simply to avoid produce price charts, restaurant menus, and stories about food. Those are all interesting (and sometimes inspiring), but not always useful when it's 5pm and I want to use some wilting tat soi this very instant. ;)

I just got a new one.

"Free of Allergens Full of Flavor"
A MIlk, Egg & Nut-Free cookbook
Compiled by Janine Draper
with the AAIA, Praries/NWT Region

You can order it through AAIA ontario office, probably prarie office too

It is quite different from the one by Linda Marienhoff Coss. There are many recipes using nutrawhip, such as pumpkin pie ( I made it... you would never know it was egg,milk free ), ice cream ( with nutriwhip and soy milk and other ingredients ) that freezes really well in my ice cream maker, and does not turn into a block of ice when left in the freezer for days. The icecream also tastes soooo awesome. More "substitution" type baking than the other book. Definitely a good addition to your collection, if you are avoiding milk and eggs.
