Living the food allergy life and having a kid who can’t have dairy, tree nuts, peanuts, or soy is not easy. And neither is worrying about accommodating all the food requirements at a play date.

From avoiding major food allergens and respecting food preferences like vegetarian or vegan to being aware of religious practices like keeping kosher, making a simple snack resembles navigating a minefield. Thankfully, Bake Sales Are My B*tch is here to help.

April Peveteaux’s 60-plus recipes cover the eight major food allergens and everything from school lunches, kids parties, sleepover foods, after-school snacks, and, yes, bake sales. In Bake Sales Are My B*tch, she gets into the nitty-gritty of food allergies, from deadly serious reactions to how to deal with those who don’t take your kid’s allergy seriously. Whether you’re a freaked-out parent or not, Peveteaux lends some much-needed guidance—and teaches you to make party foods that'll be a surefire hit.

Praise For Bake Sales Are My B*tch: Win the Food Allergy Wars with 60+ Recipes to Keep Kids Safe and Parents Sane: A Baking Book

“Bake Sales Are My B*tch should be required reading for any parent or caregiver of a school-age child, as it expertly—and quite humorously—spells out what's it's like living with the serious, constant fear of a life-and-death allergy attack while so many others laugh it away or simply don't "believe" allergies are a big deal. Pevetaux brings the same hilarious, no-nonsense stories and tales that made Gluten Is My B*tch feel as if you're just hanging out with a good friend—combined with some seriously yum recipes to boot! Buy it. Eat it. Love it.”
—Mike Adamick, author of Dad’s Book of Awesome Recipes, blogger at Cry It Out

“As a proud parent of a child with food allergies, Bake Sales are my B*tch, had me at the title page. Little did I know I would laugh until I myself broke out in hives. Literally. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard while reading a book.

April Peveteaux's hysterical allergen-ifesto isn't just a book for parents of kids with food allergies, it's for anyone who has ever accidentally served the wrong appetizer at a holiday party or judged another parent for their peanut paranoia. Yes, person who just rolled their eyes, I'm talking to you. You will love this book as much as I did. Swear.”
—Rebecca Woolf, blogger at Girl Gone Child, and author of Rockabye: From Wild to Child

“Having a child with food allergies is challenging. Allergy moms need support to keep going, and a laugh every now and then to keep from killing people. Bake Sales Are My B*tch is the best allergy mom book EVAH! It’s funny and educational and easy for anyone to pick up and understand.”
