Lactose-Free Recipes

The recipes on my site have been placed into three categories: Lactose Free, Cheese-Containing Recipes, and Borderline Recipes. The Borderline category has dishes that have some milk but may not be a problem because there's only a little milk or dairy products. Some people may be able to tolerate these and others not. Unfortunately, for most people with lactose intolerance, trial and error is the only way to know for sure just how much dairy will cause a problem.
