If you or someone you love has food allergies, you know that eating outside your own home is like navigating a minefield sometimes. And if your family is lucky enough to have escaped food allergies altogether, you might still have to deal with them anyway. That is, your kids probably go to school where somebody has allergies severe enough that you can’t bring certain treats for snack time, and you definitely can’t send them to school with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in their lunchbox or you’ll be banned from private schools for life.
This is why you need a copy of the book “Bake Sales Are My Bitch: Win the Food Allergy Wars with 60+ Recupes to Keep Kids Safe and Parents Sane,” out April 11 by April Peveteaux. (And not just because I worked on this book writing recipes with April. But isn’t that good enough reason anyway?)
“Peveteaux’s irreverent and frequently profane take on the subject brings both levity and perspective to the discussion,” says the Publishers Weekly review of “Bake Sales Are My Bitch.” Who are we to argue? (Also, that’s probably why we’re friends.)
