Balanced Homemade cat food for kitty with allergies?

My 12y.o. cat was just diagnosed with severe food allergies and in addition to a month of steroids, etc to combat her allergic reaction (which was exacerbated by using Frontline), she is now required to be on a special diet.

The vet said to only use Royal Canin Green Pea and Duck or Green Pea and Rabbit. It's quite expensive, and I don't believe they were just trying to sell me "their products" because they told us to try to get it discounted through a relative who works for a pet store. So, it's not like they're trying to just make a profit.

Anyway, the cat HATES the food and refuses to eat it, so I wanted to try making her food from home. Does anyone know of a well-balanced, healthy homemade kitty food for cats with food sensitivities? I have found several on the internet, but I question how balanced they are. OR, does anyone know of any other commercial foods that have worked for a severe food allergy?

-Thanks for any help anyone can provide!
