Because of spam, I personally moderate all comments left on my blog. However, because of health issues, I will not be able to do so in the future.

If you have a personal question about LI or any related topic you can send me an email at I will try to respond.

Otherwise, this blog is now a legacy site, meaning that I am not updating it any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

In addition, my old website, Planet Lactose, has been taken down because of the age of the information. Unfortunately, that means links to the site on this blog will no longer work.

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on or 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.

Two New Vegan Cookbooks

I got this announcement from Fair Winds Press that I've been holding back until the books' official publication date. Today's that day.

Fair Winds Press is publishing two new cookbooks that I thought might be of interest to you and your blog readers.

The Vegan Scoop: 150 Recipes for Dairy-Free Ice Cream That Tastes Better Than the “Real” Thing by Wheeler del Torro.

The recipes feature all vegan-certified ingredients, making them suitable for both vegans and those looking for dairy alternatives. After explaining how to master the basics, including recipes for vanilla, chocolate and chocolate chip, del Torro provides a mouth-watering tour of surprising and imaginative flavors including Ginger Ginseng, Thai Chile Chocolate, Star Fruit, and Cinnamon Juniper. The author owns Wheeler’s Frozen Dessert Company, a microcreamery based in Boston, and he also opened the city’s first all-vegan ice cream parlor two years ago.

The Vegan Table: 200 Unforgettable Recipes for Entertaining Every Guest at Every Occasion by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau of Compassionate Cooks.

From romantic meals for two to formal dinners, casual gatherings, children’s parties, and holiday feasts, Colleen answers every entertaining need. This cookbook features a delicious variety of recipes and seasonal menus. Cooking tips and ideas for entertaining are sprinkled throughout. Recipes include: Spring Vegetable Risotto, Pan-Grilled Portobello Mushrooms, Panini with Lemon Basil Pesto, Asian-Inspired Lettuce Wraps, Blackberry Pecan Crisp and Red Velvet Cake. Colleen’s also the author of The Joy of Vegan Baking (Fair Winds Press 2007).
