I *really* need some help from dairy free mamas

With DSs reflux acting up and DDs eczema flaring up I want to try to go dairy free again.

Please give me some recipe ideas! I don't even know what to do for bread making since all my recipes call for dehydrated milk. :(

i have been on and off dairy free...i am lactose intolerant but sometimes i just cannot help myself. I eat bread and dont have a problem with that. I eat Natures Own Whitewheat and after just looking at the ingredients I do not see milk in it but I might have missed it if its labeled as something else. As for everything else, in cooking I replace milk with soy milk. The only thing soy milk is not good for is pudding....it never sets up. When I was strict non-dairy I bought vegan butter and rice cheese, mozzarella is good and you cannot tell the difference. To me, dairy is the easiest thing to replace.

Make Irish Soda bread. It doesn't rise and it's denser.

I mean, we already drink coconut milk, I can switch to yogurt and ice cream made with coconut milk (I have a yogurt machine. I wonder if I could make the yogurt myself. . .), and that really just leaves me with the cheese. I've heard nutritional yeast flakes are a good substitute. . .

Thinking out loud. :)

But I really just want recipes totally void of any cheese, I suppose. *cries* I love cheese.

It's the cheese that gets me. I really don't like the fake cheeses.

Yes, you just use the setting for the white bread (mine has that one).
