The Food Allergy Baking Book is the go-to guide for food-allergy conscious bakers everywhere.
“I love [Woyan]. Her. . . recipes inspire in me a gratitude akin to what I experience flying from New York to California, when I think of the American pioneers: Just as I get to enjoy in mere hours a trip that required my hardy forebears arduous years to complete, I imagine that I’m benefitting from [Woyan’s] extensive trial and error in her own kitchen. . . . With [Woyan] as our guiding star, we have baked not only cake but also muffins and pancakes and cookies, pies and doughnuts and pretty much every other tooth-rotting, decadent dessert that makes childhood, and life, sweeter. (One of [Woyan’s] secret weapons is shortening, about which she writes, ‘If plain Crisco was good enough for James Beard, it’s good enough for me.’)”

"We love. . . The Food Allergy Mama’s Baking Book. . . with its dozens of delicious dairy-, egg-, and nut-free recipes."
"Chances are, someone in your office or your kid’s class is vegan, lactose-intolerant, or allergic to half the ingredients in your famous snickerdoodles. Learn to whip up all your favorites without eggs, dairy or nuts—and in most cases, with less fat."
"[Woyan’s] Web site is loaded with useful recipes and tips for handling food allergies at home and in school. . . . To try her recipes (such as the banana chocolate chip muffins shown here), check out her blog or her book, The Food Allergy Mama’s Baking Book: Great Dairy-, Egg-, and Nut-Free Treats for the Whole Family.”

“[Woyan's] tips for baking, reading labels, and allergy-sensitive entertaining, as well as her allergy-friendly product suggestions, will be a boon to anyone who shops and cooks for family members at risk from common allergens.”
