Root Beer Float Cupcakes {dairy + gluten free}

One of my favorite summertime treats as a kid was a root beer float. I finally was able to share my love of them with my little guy a couple of years ago (I hadn't really thought of doing it sooner) and he loved it. Now he asks for them all the time.

Healthy Meals for Busy Moms: Sun Basket Meal Kits

I received product for free from Moms Meet to use and post my honest opinions. I was compensated for this post and this page may contain affiliate links.

I love to cook. And bake. And grocery shop. I know that might make me a little strange, but between being a foodie and a food-allergy mom, I spend so much time planning meals around our dietary needs that are also unique and delicious, that I've grown to love every step. Yes, I am also that mom who does a little happy dance in the aisles when I find new-to-us, safe products.

Dirty Chai Protein Shake (dairy + gluten free)

At the start of 2017, I set a goal to be healthier. This included exercising more, drinking more water each day, and eating healthier. Of course, I set a weight loss goal too because I really hadn't made my diet a priority in awhile. If I'm being totally honest, since my pregnancy with my littlest bug.

Creamy BBQ Pasta Salad



Creamy BBQ Pasta Salad
Makes about 10-12 servings

  • 2 cups mayonnaise (use eggless mayo so you don't have to worry as much about refrigeration) 
  • 1/4 cup apple juice 
  • 2 Tbsp Sweet Honey flavored KC Masterpiece® BBQ Dry Rub Mix 
  • 1 Tbsp honey 
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar 
  • salt + pepper to taste 
  • 1 box dry gluten-free elbow noodles, prepared as directed, drained and cooled 
  • 10 pieces crisp cooked bacon, crumbled 
  • 1/2 purple onion, diced 
  • 1 cup frozen peas 
  • 1/4 cup green onions, sliced 

In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, apple juice, dry rub mix, honey, apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper. Add the cooked and cooled noodles and toss to coat completely in the dressing.

Add the bacon, red onion, and frozen peas. Fold until well combined. Taste and adjust seasoning if desired (be careful with the salt at first if your bacon is salty, as you may not need much). Top with sliced green onions and additional bacon crumbles for garnish.

Grilled Fresh Peaches





Grilled Fresh Peaches
Makes 6 servings
  • 3 fresh pieces, cut in half, pits removed 
  • Olive oil spray 
  • Vanilla ice cream (I used dairy-free cashew milk frozen dessert) 
  • Caramel sauce (I used my dairy-free version) 
Preheat gas or charcoal grill to medium heat. Spray peach halves with olive oil and place cut-side down on the grill grates or on a preheated grill pan. Grill for 3-5 minutes per side or until peaches begin to soften and have grill marks. Remove from grill and place on a platter to cool slightly before serving.
