I've learned from experience that the blogosphere is an excellent source of advice, so I'm asking for some.
Since sometime during my freshman year of college, about four years ago, I've had continually-worsening lactose intolerance. Milk was the first to go, then ice cream, then regular cream in my morning coffee, then most cheeses, and now I can't even eat a few ounces of a low-lactose content cheese without feeling icky the next day. This is a bit of a problem, because almost every recipe I make regularly involves some kind of cheese. I'm running short on ideas now!
That, dear blog friends, is where you come in: I need to build up a new repertoire of dairy-free recipes. I'm pinning some here, but I'm picky. It has to be easy, not use too many dishes and pans to make, and satisfy two rather large appetites.
Do you have any favorite recipes that don't involve dairy products? Or know any websites with good vegan meals? Or have any particular favorite dairy substitutes? Any ideas would be great!
