Guacamole (gluten-free + vegan)


Guacamole (gluten-free + vegan)

  • 4 ripe avocados
  • 1 jalapeno, finely diced 
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 1 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
Cut the avocados in half. Remove the pits and set aside (they'll be used later). Scoop the avocados into a medium bowl and mash with a fork.

Add all other ingredients and stir to fully combine. Serve immediately, or to store for later, place the avocado pits in the guacamole and cover tightly. Refrigerate until ready to serve. The pits will help to keep it from turning brown as quickly.

Sausage Potato + Egg Quiche (dairy + gluten free)

If you're anything like me, having a quick and easy, ready-made breakfast makes all the difference on busy weekday mornings as I'm trying to get everyone ready and out the door. These mini Sausage, potato + egg quiches are just the ticket! They only take a short time to prep and bake on the weekends and I can store them in the fridge to have on hand all week long. Just reheat a couple and head out the door!

German Chocolate Brownies (dairy + gluten free)

Growing up, I remember my mom making German chocolate cake and I was not a fan. I think it was because of the coconut and pecans mixed into the icing and I didn't really care for either of those ingredients. Now, I'm a HUGE fan of both coconut and pecans, so I'm all for some good German chocolate!  

I made this German Chocolate Brownie recipe to share with my co-workers. We have so many food days, it's a bit ridiculous - but fun and always delicious! This recipe is certainly and keeper and one I'll be making for pot-lucks and get togethers often.

Chocolate Dipped Cones (dairy-free)

This past summer and early fall, we got really bored with sitting around the house and, though the weather was hot, we found some really fun ways to keep busy and spend time together as a family. 

Our boys enjoyed throwing rocks in the river. Dawson especially loved watching the trains go by. We played at parks, visited the zoo, fed the ducks at a nearby pond, and went hiking. On occasion, we topped off all of our outdoor fun with a cold, ice cream treat. When you have a child with a severe milk allergy, going out and enjoying ice cream together as a family can prove to be very difficult. We don't have any dairy-free ice cream options so we usually have to first stop at the store and pick up safe ice cream before hitting the ice cream shop for everyone else.

Updated 10-27-17
This recipe has been a family favorite since I posted in originally 3 1/2 years ago. I especially love to make it when the weather starts turning crisp and it begins to feel like fall. This is the perfect warm, comforting breakfast or snack!
