A vegan, a person who's gluten free, someone with a nut allergy and an anorexic walk into a bar…

Now what on earth do they eat?
I'm going home to visit the family for a few weeks. I have a severe nut allergy, my mom is gluten free, and my sister is a recovering anorexic (so anything really fatty or high calorie makes her uncomfortable). Throw into the mix, I'm bringing my vegan fiancé home with me.
I'd love some ideas for things I can make that all of us can enjoy.

Do you have a favorite I'm-alone-now-so-nobody-will-know favorite dish?

I know this is old, but I love it! Let's see:
Nachos: Tortilla chips sprinkled with pre crumbled feta and doused with white vinegar. Heated to perfection.
"Cookie dough": Peanut butter mixed with sugar until it ceases to be gooey. (If you add an egg it actually makes good cookies).
Also, spongebob shaped Kraft Mac & Cheese with extra parm. And while we're being juvenile, pair it with some A&W root beer straight out of the 2 liter bottle.

Pancakes and waffles - how do you top them?

I like cream cheese and apricot jelly on my waffles. I suppose another kind of jelly would work. Perhaps raspberry. Peanut butter is pretty good too.

Naturally Sweetened and Gluten-Free Thai Iced Tea

You had to specify that this tea is gluten free? ALL tea is gluten free! Iced or otherwise.

I have a jar of capers. Now what?

I'm not particularly anxious, but I'd like to know there's something I can do with them. I also enjoyed them, so I wouldn't mind using them again.

I have a jar of capers. Now what?

I was at the market, as I was walking by the capers when it occurred to me that I had never used capers before. I came home and made a lemon caper sauce, which used a small fraction of the jar I purchased. What do I do with the rest of them? Any good recipes?
~Thanks.

Recipes for a Recovering Vegetarian?

I love dairy and I'm fine with eggs.
It is mostly a texture thing, or at least thats how it started. At this point it's been so long that the sight and the idea have become problematic. The smell of fish is also a problem. The stir fry and fish are both good ideas. I don't know if I can do the fish, but I'll give it a try. It's good to know that it's not just me. My doc and nutritionist just keep telling me to eat more meat, they're not big on helping. Actually most people seem to think it should be easy.
Thank you.

Recipes for a Recovering Vegetarian?

I love food. Let me rephrase that: I love vegetarian food. I became a vegetarian the day my parents let me (I was 7 ) and I've been one for more than half of my life. I always hated meat as a kid; the only thing I had a hard time giving up was gelatin. I've never had beef, pork, or even a hotdog (I've got over my animal rights phase and I would like to try more food (this life style is limiting my cooking and dinning) , be able to travel with greater ease and be in better health. The problem remains: I am still disgusted by meat. I can manage something with chicken stock in it or mild fish with a nice sauce; basically anything that is well disguised. Any well disguised meat recipes to help me ease onto it? Oh, another rub: I live in a gluten free household (not my choice, I assure you).
~Thanks!

College Students

Does your college have any culinary classes? The students may not be foodies, but the teaches may be able to point you in the right direction. Also check into culinary schools in the area. There's a nice culinary school near my college.
