Lactation Cookies Everyone Should be Eating

Lactation Cookies Everyone Should be Eating

I don’t care if you are a breastfeeding mom or a single dude, everyone should be eating these lactation cookies. They are delish, and for those of you who care, dairy-free.

Dairy-free Blueberry Muffins

Dairy-free Blueberry Muffins

Blueberries are on sale at our local grocery store so I decided it was the perfect time to try a blueberry muffin recipe my friend Stacy gave me. The original version, which can also be found at AllRecipes.com, called for milk and butter. Of course that doesn’t work for Luke so I substituted almond milk and coconut oil. Even with those changes, they are quite delicious. I made the mistake of using brown sugar in the topping versus white which caused them to flatten a little. I also didn’t use cupcake liners which was a mistake. By the time I got them out of the cupcake pan it’s more of a crumble than a muffin. So steer clear of those errors and your muffins might actually look as good as they taste. Continue reading “Dairy-free Blueberry Muffins”

Looks Aren’t Everything

Looks Aren’t Everything

See that beautiful strawberry rhubarb pie picture at the top of this post? I got that from the internet. Mine does not look like that.

In my defense, it does still taste amazing. It’s a good thing looks aren’t everything.

Thai Noodle Soup

Thai Noodle Soup

Did you know the average family eats the same 7 to 10 meals for dinner? Think about it. You can probably list off the key dishes you ate for dinner as a child. Of course there were always the special meals that appeared on the table here and there, but in general you probably have around 7 to 10 on your list. And who can blame our parents? It’s not as if they had Pinterest, AllRecipes.com, or my all-time-favorite, Plan To Eat, as resources. Continue reading “Thai Noodle Soup”

Strawberry Pistachio Dip (with a Dairy-Free Alternative)

If you are looking for the world’s easiest appetizer for a potluck, this is it. All you need in a tub of Cool Whip, one package of Jello Pistachio Pudding and a container or two of strawberries. My friend Tiffany introduced me to this amazing and incredibly easy appetizer and I cannot count the number of times I’ve made it. Not only does it take all of five minutes to whip together (pun intended) but it’s also a crowd-pleaser every time. The only problem is my  poor dairy-allergic husband can’t enjoy it.  Continue reading “Strawberry Pistachio Dip (with a Dairy-Free Alternative)”
