Dear Friends:

My February column "Recipes for Love" is up on Lime at

It includes:

Banana Chocolate Swirl Bread
Bourbon Peach Bread Pudding
Egg Baked in a Tomato Basket (Skip this one if you have food allergies, but it's great for those on a GF diet)
Red-Hot Vegan Chocolate Mousse
Aphrodite Pot Pie


Happy V-Day!

    HI Cybele,
    thanks for the new recipes.When I told my daughter you had new Valentine recipes up she said "make one of the chocolate ones" but the Aphrodite Pie caught my eye. Can I substitute some thing else besides lamb, or would that just completely change the recipe? I just don't eat lamb. for no good reason, just I never have.
    Happy Valentines day,
    Robin and Taffy

    I'm so excited to have these recipes! Not only do i loove spiced chocolate (and therefore am delighted to try a recipe for mousse!) but today is the second snow day this week so my house is filled with fidgety, constantly hungry small children.
    I really want to thank you for always having fun recipes that everyone can eat. (3 out of the 4 kids have at least a 1 food allergy unique from the others so having something they can all eat together is wonderful)
    hope you have an amazing Valentines Day!

    Dear Robin:

    The recipe was really built around the flavor of lamb. If you were to substitute, use beef, not chicken. And let me know how it tastes!

    Hi Cybele,

    I just wanted to let you know I posted a response to your XMas letter. I'm completely new to blogs and wasn't sure if I should post it here (the most recent section) or in the section that prompted me to respond.

    Heidi :)

    I have a general question about the recipes in the book. I don't have any egg allergies, can I substitute eggs for the egg replacer in the baking recipes or will that upset the chemistry in the recipes?

    Thanks- wonderful, wonderful cookbook!

    Dear Heidi:

    Thanks for the great review on amazon!!!

    and thanks also for the valuable info on the Christmas post. It really is helpful for us to share what we've learned since so much of what goes on in the food allergy world is not mainstream. It's kind of a grass-roots community.

    Karen, yes, you can use eggs. For any 1 1/2 tsp. egg replacer mixed with 2 Tbsp. non-dairy milk, you may use 1 egg.

    Hi Cybele,

    Have you ever tried following a rotation diet for allergies? Rotation diets seem like a good thing to follow. Unfortunately, the recipes in the food rotation book I have seem so boring and lacking in variety. I would think it would be even more important for a person with multiple food allergies, who becomes sensitive to foods he/she eats over and over again to have a diet rich in variety? Would you ever consider writing a rotation diet cookbook? :)

    I just found a discussion page on milk and soy protein intolerance that mighthelp some of you out there. Here is a link:

    Hi Cybele

    Just received your book and glancing at resource list, in particular would love to get hold of Rice Dream Ice-cream for my son who has dairy/soya/egg and wheat allergies. I live in Northern Ireland (UK) and haven't come across any ice-cream suitable for my son. I envy your wide range of ingredients available which I have not seen in our health food shops.

    Looking forward to trying your recipes, although my son is still a very picky eater (19 months).
