West Seneca Mom Writes Allergy-Friendly Cookbook


WEST SENECA, N.Y. - When Elizabeth Feeney first learned her then 9-month-old son, Logan, was allergic to eggs, dairy, tree nuts, and peanuts, she panicked.

"It was really rough. I was scared. I can't feed him anything," said Feeney. "This is the worst thing ever."

If Logan eats or touches anything that contains those allergens or foods that have even come into contact with them, his eyes swell shut. He gets sick, breaks out in a rash, and becomes lethargic.

Feeney said it was a struggle to find allergy-friendly recipes that tasted good or ones that didn't call for expensive, hard to find ingredients.

She resorted to cooking two separate meals - one for Logan and one for the rest of the family. That meant twice the cooking, twice the cleanup, and nearly twice the grocery bill.
