I tried eliminating dairy, and it's made a big difference. I now have a happy baby! I am really missing cheese, though, so please help me out with some ideas of all the things I CAN eat.

you can make a really good cream cheese spread if you take non dairy yogurt (either nut or soy) and strain out the whey. then you add salt and spices. you can also use this to make ricotta style cheese, for manicotti, lasagna etc.
cathe posted a good recipe for cashew yogurt- basically its just pureed raw cashews, left to sit out for 24 hours- no starter necessary. its REALLY good!! sunflower seeds can also be fermented, and they taste kind of like sour cream. check out "wild fermentation" for recipes, or i can post it if you are interested.
