Otherwise, this blog and my Lactose Intolerance Clearinghouse are now legacy sites, meaning that I am not updating them any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on or or or a whole lot of other places that Smashwords is suppose to distribute the book to. Almost 100,000 words on LI, allergies, milk products, milk-free products, and the genetics of intolerance, along with large helpings of the weirdness that is the Net.

My Sweet Vegan

Teens creating special diet recipes must be all the rage in the cookbook world.

I just posted Yummies for Sensitive Tummies a few days ago.

Today I found My Sweet Vegan by Hannah Kaminsky. Kaminsky is an 18-year-old who began a vegan for ethical reasons about four years ago and seems to have done nothing since except experiment with making vegan desserts.

According to Andrew Brophy of the Connecticut Post:

She's already created more than 150 desserts without the traditional ingredients a baker would use, such as milk, eggs, cream, cheese, gelatin and yogurt.

Those desserts include coconut creme pie, chocolate chip cookie pie, triple threat chocolate cheesecake, silken chocolate mousse cake and golden glazed donuts.

Kaminsky's recipes for vegan desserts, which fall under the broad categories of cakes, cookies, tarts, pies, fudge and toffee candy, are in "My Sweet Vegan," which was published Dec. 3 by Fleming Ink.... Kaminsky created all of the recipes in "My Sweet Vegan" and photographed all of the desserts.

You can find the book in my Milk-Free Bookstore on the Vegan Cookbooks page.
