    Ok, I'm good at the CKF diet. My husband's father was a kidney patient, and passed away of renal failure in 2007. I'm going to give you a few pointers so that you can tweak recipes.

    1. Instead of using milk in recipes, use Plain Non-Dairy liquid creamer. Works wonders.

    A simple dessert that should fit both diets is a gelatin and fruit dessert, just don't use bananas. And top that dessert with Cool Whip, which is dairy free.

    2. Cream cheese and cheese are not the same thing as far as a CKF diet is concerned. Cream cheese is allowed where regular cheeses aren't. You could make a homemade cheesecake and make the crust from soy flour.

    Also, Betty crocker makes dessert mixes that are gluten free. Most of these would be alright for the CKF diet because they would not contain any whole grains, which are higher in potassium, etc. than plain flours.

    3) Gravies, etc. can be made to fit both diets by using cornstarch instead of flour.

    You can also do a google search for gluten free sauces and desserts and simply make substitutions for dairy, etc. Somewhere I have a cookbook that we got when we were caring for my FIL. It had some nice recipes in it.

    I'll go through my recipe collection tonight and see what I can find that will help you out and I'll post some.

    flhomeschoolmom, if you find your cookbook please let me know the name. Thank you for these suggestions. Did you have a barbeque recipe for your FIL?

    I have a friend who can't have dairy (except goat) or gluten. Cooking for her is a challenge, but I've learned a few things:

    Coconut milk makes an excellent and yummy substitute for whipped cream. No sugar needed! Open the can the day before and refrigerate it. When you're ready, skim the solidified layer off the top of the liquid and whip it just like cream.

    Meringue-based desserts are wonderful. Here ya go:
    http://family.go.com/food/recipe-ak-...gue-roulade-t/ Substitute that coconut for the cream. Or, I think Dream whip is dairy free. Cool Whip? Haven't looked.

    My MIL taught me this one. It's a favorite, and we change up the fillings. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/strawberry-schaum-torte/

    If you're not on Pinterest yet, think about it. I've seen tons of appropriate recipes, and you can search for them.

    Good luck!

    If it's true we learn from our mistakes, I'm going to be a genius!

    I can't do dairy products either. I use the nondairy powered creamer for everything that calls for milk. Works great for me. It is a lot cheeper to use the powered & mix your own rather than the liquid.

    The cookbook was titled "Kidney Friendly Comfort Foods". It was given to him by his diatician at his dialysis center. It had a lot of info in the front of it for how to reduce sodium, potassium, etc. You can get a free copy of it here: http://www.aakp.org/aakp-library/comfort-foods/

    Also, when dealing with the CKF diet, fluids are an issue. Kidney patients are on a fluid restricted diet. Also, they can drink soda's, but they can not have dark cola's. When doing sodas, use fruit flavored sodas, sprite, 7-up, gingerale, etc. As I recall, he could drink Rootbeer, but only did that rarely. Kool-Aid is acceptable for kidney patients.

    Another dessert option is a rice pudding. That would actually have less fluid in it than the gelatin dessert. And rice is allowed on both the CKF diet and the Celiac diet.

    I don't remember us making a special BBQ sauce for him. He would use regular BBQ sauce, but use it as a dip. You can check various brands to see which ones are lowest in sodium.

    You can find recipes for the CKF diet here:
    http://www.aakp.org/search/act_search.cfm

    You can find recipes for Celiac (Gluten Free) here:
    http://www.celiac.com/categories/Glu...dFree-Recipes/

    All Recipes would probably have more recipes, especially gluten free ones. My youngest son has taken over my computer, so I haven't had a chance to look through my recipes. I'm having to use his homeschool computer to do anything online. LOL. He's in my room and I'm in his.

    I forgot something in my previous post that is important. Potato starch is acceptable for a gluten free diet, but not a good choice for a CKF diet. People on a CKF diet can have potatoes, but the potatoes have to be specially treated. It isn't difficult to do, it's just time consuming. Two of my FIL's favorite foods were mashed potatoes and potato salad, and he could have both occasionally but we had to treat the potatoes first.

    You can not use instant mashed potatoes. You have to use regular potatoes. You peel them, cut them, and then soak them in water for an hour or two. Drain the water that you soaked the potatoes in. This process leaches out a fair amount of the potassium that is in the potatoes. Then boil your potatoes and again drain the water off. This leaches out more of the potassium. Once done this way, turn them into potato salad or mashed potatoes. Use non-dairy creamer and margarine in the mashed potatoes or to make them special, blend in some softned cream cheese. Also, if you're doing a pot roast, the potatoes in the pot roast have to be treated the same way.

    Another acceptable pie crust can be made with corn chex or rice chex. Crush them like you would to make a graham cracker crust.

    I am not familiar with the CKF diet but i have lots of 'cooking without' recipes which i can look through for you if you tell me what you need to exclude.

    My favourite coeliac desert is orange and almond cake. ( the one where you boil whole oranges and liquidise them, skin and all!) i dont know if it meets your other criteria.

    The diet cannot have wheat, gluten, dairy products, salt, only very low potassium foods. This leaves out almost all citrus, tomato, most fruit, beans, and soy products. All herbs have to checked to be sure they don't affect his medicines.

    Wow- that IS a challenge!

    No dairy plus no soy rules out a lot of my desserts. Can he have coconut milk and/or coconut cream? I have a tasty icecream recipe using them if you want it.
    I have lots of gluten free baking recipes but most call for baking powder. The lo sodium powder i know has potassium. Let me know if you have an acceptable baking powder and if so i can post something.

    Otherwise, these brandy snaps might work ( if he can have ginger)?
    Qtr cup margarine
    Qtr cup caster/superfine sugar
    2 tbsp corn syrup
    One third cup white rice flour
    1 level tsp ground ginger
    1 tsp brandy
    If he can have lemon rind, add rind of half a lemon

    Line baking sheets with wax paper. Melt marg with sugar and syrup in small saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in flour, ginger, brandy and grated rind.
    Place small spoonfuls of mix 2 inches apart on trays. Cook at 350 F (180 C) until golden and bubbly. Remove from oven.
    Cool for 30 seconds and, while still soft, pick up with a palette knife and press into desired shape (use an oiled cup to make an icecream cup, or roll around an oiled wooden spoon handle to make tubes)
    Cool and carefully slide onto plate.
    Store: airtight container
