A note about the recipes on Love, Scratch:

Most of these recipes are gluten, dairy and nut free, but not all of them.

This recipe bank started we found out about any of our food sensitivities and allergies (including gluten, all dairy, casein, peanuts, cashews, pistachios, sunflower seeds, and tuscan melon), and so there are a few things here that do contain some of these allergens. I am working my way through this list, updating them as best I can to be allergy friendly and am using the following symbols as I do so: GF = gluten free; DF = dairy free; NF = peanut and tree nut free, but may contain coconut. Use this guide to help figure out what works for your family.

Also, all purpose flour (or even white whole wheat flour) substitutes nicely in recipes that call for Gluten Free Flour Blend. Simply substitute wheat flour 1:1 and omit the xanthan gum (if the recipe even calls for it).
