Vegan cheese substitutes/recipes??

Let me be frank. I love cheese. However, I eat a vegan diet for a significant portion of the year. Dilemma. Usually, when I'm eating a vegan diet, I just try to put cheese out of my mind. I have been to some excellent restaurants that include vegan cheese (including a vegan pizza that might just be some of the best pizza I've ever had), but when I'm not eating out, I usually don't include cheese substitutes in my cooking. But lately, I've been coming across some vegan cheese recipes that look way too good to pass up. I've found some here and here and I am so tempted to try them out...but I'm a little nervous because truthfully, I don't know much about cooking. Any advice? Have any of you made your own vegan cheese? If not, have you tried any vegan cheese substitutes that don't taste like rubber or cardboard?

Would cilantro work in a chicken salad?

Cilantro and chicken salad - do they go together?  This year among other things I planted cilantro.  To my surprise it grew very well and I have a rather large amount, based on this I'm trying to find reasons to use it.  Well I have to make a large amount of chicken salad (with apples and walnuts) for a bridal shower coming up and I wondered if I put some cilantro in the salad if it would taste great or not?  Also how much would I use or would it only be for garnish?  Any ideas . . .

How do you deal with food allergies?

When I was growing up, my brother had a friend who was deathly allergic to peanuts. I remember being amazed that his mother couldn't, for example, eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and later kiss him on the cheek. When he would come over for dinner, we would have to make sure that the food we were making hadn't been manufactured in a place that processed peanuts. I remember thinking, Really? It's that big of a deal? (I was five, maybe, and not the most knowledgeable or sensitive, ha.) Now, of course, I'm older and understand a lot more about how serious allergies can be. My boyfriend's mom is allergic to everything under the sun, and I can't imagine keeping track of all those allergens - and still getting adequate nutrition. I want to have her over for dinner sometime, but I'd have to make two separate meals because I'm positive I wouldn't be able to come up with something that would fit into both my vegetarian diet and her allergic one! So, my question is - if you or someone in your family suffers from a serious food allergy, how do you deal with it? How has it changed the way you eat? And what kind of resources have you found helpful along the way?

Mild Food Allergies and Elimination Diet

I’ve had dark circles under my eyes for as long as I can remember and also suffer from a perpetually runny nose. :p Recently it was suggested that I may have a mild allergy to some sort of food. Could this be the case? I’ve read about elimination diets to try and figure it out, but they seem so complicated! What am I supposed to eat if I try one?!
