  • Recipes

    Most of the recipes I use are naturally lactose free. In recipes calling for milk, I substitute rice milk. This works wonderfully. I use lactose free margarine and chocolate chips in cookies (see list above). Look for VEGAN recipes–they don’t contain dairy products while vegetarian recipes may. A good resource is the Veggies Unite! Recipe Directory.

    I’m starting to compile lactose-free recipes. Here’s the first release! *If you have any wonderful dairy-free recipes please submit them to me, so I can share them with others.

    • Lactose-Free Gingerbread Cookies
      These cookies are meant to be eaten (they’re non-dairy and very tasty!) but may also be used as ornaments, placecards, or decorations during the holiday season.
