1. If you're making a recipe from scratch, you can just replace the allergen with a "free" version. Now, you do want to check what goes in all the other ingredients to make sure that you're unknowingly consuming food you shouldn't be, but otherwise just make these replacements and you'll be fine.
Flour, baking mix, pancake mix, etc. - King Arthur Flour has gluten-free versions!
Cornbread mix, oats, pizza crust mix, etc. - Bob's Red Mill has gluten-free versions!
If your local grocery store doesn't have these, a nearby Whole Foods might. Now that so many people are going gluten-free, these products are so much easier to find.
Butter - Earth's Balance has dairy-free versions (including some that are organic)
Milk - I prefer almond to soy milk, but that's personal preference.
Cheese - Veggie Cheese
