Dog Ears to Host Author of Allergy Friendly Recipe Book

 

Dog Ears Bookstore & Café will host local author Elizabeth Cosgrove Feeney for a book-signing event at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 14, at the bookstore, located at 688 Abbott Road, Buffalo.

The author received a bachelor’s degree from State University of New York at Geneseo and an associate’s degree from Trocaire College in Buffalo. A wife and stay-at-home mom with two sons, her youngest son was born with food allergies. In her new book, “Mommy Can I Have That” published by No Frills Buffalo, she has taken family recipes and converted them into safe, delicious recipes the whole family can enjoy!

“This is a book of recipes that people with certain allergies can eat and the entire family can enjoy,” said Cosgrove Feeney. “In this case, the foods are free of eggs, dairy products, peanuts and tree nuts. This book is about making recipes with everyday ingredients found in your kitchen without causing you to spend $30 to make a pan of brownies. I have striven to make sure that these ingredients are not complicated or expensive.

“Some years ago, when my youngest son was nine months old, we learned that he was allergic to eggs, dairy products, peanuts and tree nuts,” she added. “This was at first a difficult and frightening diagnosis, but it gave me inspiration to learn to cook for him and the family and then to write this book.

“In the beginning, I would prepare something for my son and something else for the rest of the family. This got old fast. I then began taking some of my grandmother's recipes and substituting allergy friendly ingredients for the offending ones. The results were fantastic and the foods were delicious. You can bring them to parties and gatherings and no one would guess that they are non-allergic. There are allergy free foods here that cannot be purchased in stores, such as cinnamon rolls, donuts, marshmallow fluff and sponge candy.
