Cooking for someone with dietary restrictions, whether its yourself or someone you love, can be a bit of a challenge at first.  Personally, I try very hard to avoid gluten and dairy, as those are the big triggers for both myself and my husband.  It’s easy to pick a few safe recipes and repeat them over and over, but that gets pretty boring after a while.  Here’s a list of some recipes that I’ve found and enjoyed time and again.  (Where dairy is called for in a recipe, I substitute.  For butter, I use either coconut oil or ghee, which doesn’t contain casein.  For milk or cream, I usually stick with coconut milk).  I’ll add to this page as I find more, but please feel free to contribute in the comments section with links of your own.  I know I’d love to hear about your favorite recipes, and I’m sure everyone else could use some new dinner ideas as well.
