Hi, thanks for taking the time to read this. My husband has several food allergies including soy, tree nuts and lobster. My 3 year old is allergic to egg and my 1 year old is allergic to milk. (for my youngest they said to avoid all milk products and they will do more testing when she gets a little older to find out if it's one specific part of the milk.)
The second problem I have is i'm not a very good cook, not creative in any way and truely hate to cook. This makes life around here pretty rough, to say the least. I worked it out ok before my youngest got old enough to eat "real" food. but all of the substitutes I can find for milk in cooking are soy based which they hubby can't eat. If anyone has any recipies or tips or resources I would really appreciate it! thank you!

You may want to also post this on the Food Allergy Families board. There may be someone there that can help. I'm sorry I can't help, I'm only dealing with tree nut allergies.

For the milk allergies, there are several things that aren't soy based. Have you tried coconut milk? Purely Decadent makes a line of coconut yogurts, ice creams and milks that are good. Also there is Earth Balance which is a "butter" substitute. Cheese would be the hardest thing. You can do to godairyfree.com for other substitutes suggestions. Since soy is in a lot of processed foods, I would think you would need to look at making your own marinades and sauces from scratch. I would try to keep meals simple - the fewer ingredients the better. Meals like spaghetti, chicken fingers (use a milk substitute to stick the breading on instead of egg), tacos, and chili should be simple to keep all allergens out. Pasta dishes (if you like pasta) should be easy. Since my daughter can't have cheese, I have also made a casserole and taken out her serving before baking the whole with cheese. It worked out well.

It's hard to make something that everyone can eat. My kids like rice milk and rice cheese. (You can substitute rice milk for regular milk when cooking. However, if you try to use it for something like instant pudding it stays really liquidy.). You can make a great homemade pizza with rice mozzerella cheese and veggie toppings. (we use gluten free crust as well). We also use the enrgy egg substitute which works great for cooking and baking. Good luck.
