Happily Gluten & Dairy-free
In 2001 I discovered I have both a gluten and dairy food intolerance. As a lover of both bread and cheese, my diet was in for a rude awakening. After spending a few months identifying what foods I could eat, (and what foods I could not) I began a journey to find tasty and satisfying meals that were both gluten & dairy-free.
Laura Friendly is a place to share a little bit about my life and some of the recipes and information I have gathered along the way. Many of the meals you will find here are built around classic dishes or have been passed down through the family tree. Others are great offerings from talented individuals moving on a similar path. My hope is that you will find something to satisfy, encourage or inspire.
Why is it called Laura Friendly, you ask? After many many dinner parties, holiday gatherings, and other food events I was simply tired of asking if each meal was dairy-free and gluten-free. So one day I jokingly said “Is it Laura friendly?” For the past three years my special man friend (as he prefers to be called) has been encouraging, if not daring me to start a blog, and he claimed to have the perfect name for it… you guessed it: Laura Friendly :)
