What happens when your food allergies aren't trendy...
As a child of the "Got Milk" generation, finding out I was lactose intolerant as an adult was horrible, but there are lots of great vegan and lactose-free cheeses out there that don't make you miss it!
I've gotten more than a few looks when I order off the vegan menu at a restaurant and then order a side of steak. I love mixing vegan recipes with meat - especially since as a hunter, the freezer is always full
After learning of my egg allergy, I realized basically I was going to have to go vegan, but I wasn't about to give up my carnivorous ways - although some days I do because vegan food is delicious too!
Ok this isn't an allergy, but I'm a huge fan of whiskey - in fact, it's one of my jobs. So what's better than having a drink while cooking (Galloping Gourmet anyone)? And if some falls into your recipes...even better!
A few years ago, I became lactose-intolerant. To add insult to injury, I also found out I had an egg allergy. As a food lover, I found myself hopping up (uninvited) on a soap box frequently about the fact that restaurants bend over backwards to accommodate some intolerances and allergies but not others. So, I decided to learn to cook better and in-line with my food allergies. On this site, you will find recipes that are dairy-free, lactose-free, cow lactose-free (using goat, sheep, buffalo cheeses), and/or egg-free. I also am a hunter and a whiskey brand ambassador, so you will see recipes that include game meat and booze. My husband is Keto, so many of the recipes are low carb and no sugar; I'm not though, so many recipes carb it up. Disclaimer: I am not a trained chef or cook, I'm just an academic historian that loves food, misses cheese, and needed a hobby.
