Synopses & Reviews
THE DIVVIES BAKERY COOKBOOK is an opportunity for the millions of people who are dealing with serious food allergies to put the sweet back in their kitchens. With an assortment of delicious recipes, free of the four major food allergens - peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, and eggs (all vegan!), Lori Sandler offers sweet treats that everyone can enjoy and share ANY time: at birthday parties, snack time, bake sales, holidays, picnics, dessert time, and just because. What ingredients are left out have been replaced by double dollops of the good and the gooey - like chocolate, oatmeal, and molasses, - making the confections not only safe to eat, but absolutely delicious for everyone, even those without food allergies.
Divvies, an irresistible “fun-foods” company devoted to baking safe-to-eat, tasty treats for people with life-threatening food allergies, has been featured on Good Morning America and The Martha Stewart Show, as well as in the New York Times, New York Post, Gourmet Magazine, Vogue, Everyday with Rachel Ray, Daily Candy, and Urban Baby. All of their products are made in a dedicated facility where no nuts, eggs, milk, or ingredients that may have been exposed to these allergens are allowed in the door.
Some of the tasty recipes featured in THE DIVVIES BAKERY COOKBOOK include:
Divvies Famous Chocolate Cupcakes (featured on the Martha Stewart Show!)
Benjamins Chocolate Chip Cookies
Extra Thick, Treasured-Filled Marshmallow Treats
“Ice Cream” Hash
Movie Night Popcorn
With the degree of “divviculty” indicated for each recipe, tips for the best birthday parties, perfect picnic baskets, cool cupcake towers, snacks in a cinch, tasty travel treats, and bonus gluten-free recipes, THE DIVVIES BAKERY COOKBOOK is the essential allergen-free cookbook for beginners and kitchen experts alike.
Rave reviews for DIVVIES BAKERY: "Sandler is the owner and founder of Divvies, a New York bakery that has been featured on Good Morning America and The Martha Stewart Show. Here, she provides easy-to-prepare sweets for people with allergies (and vegans, too). The introduction lists items to keep on hand in the pantry, refrigerator, and freezer, as well as equipment. While television viewers may be familiar with some of the recipes, those new to Divvies are sure to discover delectable desserts such as Divvies Famous Chocolate Cupcakes and Pick-Your-Berry Muffins (which call for soy milk). Expect demand." --Library Journal "Divvies (think "divvying up," for sharing) goodies are clearly timely - the number of children with severe food allergies seems to be rapidly increasing, though no one is sure why - but they are also tasty." --The New York Times "Consumption and sharing may cause others around you to develop "allergies" as well. Keep in a cool, dry, secret place." --Daily Candy "The cookies are rich and chewy, and the salty-sweet kettle corn won us over." --Gourmet magazine "Divvies has created a way for everyone to get together, so go ahead and plan your own sweet celebration." --Urban Baby
