Orange Creamsicle Frosting {gluten free + vegan}

#glutenfree #vegan #orange #creamsicle #frosting

As a "food allergy mom," preparation is key for me to keep up with all of the random, last minute events that pop up when food may be required. I like to make up a batch of cupcakes and freeze them (with or without frosting) for just such occasions. Birthday parties out or at school are the typical events, but now we have parties at school to include as well. Thankfully, Mason's teacher has a refrigerator/freezer in the classroom, so I am able to send a few ready-made cupcakes to keep there "just in case."

Orange Creamsicle Floats {dairy free}

Since Halloween is one of my favorite holidays/events of the year, I am always looking for fun snacks to make and crafts to create to commemorate the season. Thanks to Fanta and Dasani, we were able to create delicious and festive Halloween snacks and a super fun kids craft project!

Apple Cider Punch

#apple #cider #punch #fall #drinks

I love apple cider. Hot or cold, it is the perfect, spicy, fall drink. My little one loves apple cider too, but his big brother, not so much. I decided I would make a bubbly punch using apple cider that all of the kids would enjoy, whether they share our love of cider or not. All of the kiddos at our Pumpkin Carving Party loved this punch!

Chicken + Spinach Fettuccine Alfredo {dairy + gluten free}

#glutenfree #dairyfree #alfredo

Creamy, delicious Alfredo sauce epitomizes comfort food for me. Since Mason's dairy-allergy diagnosis, I have only made Alfredo a handful of times, typically making a separate, dairy-free meal for him. Over the years, I have grown increasingly uncomfortable with cooking with milk products due to cross-contamination issues that can easily happen in the kitchen. Whenever I have used milk, cheese or other dairy in cooking, my anxiety skyrockets.

Pumpkin Carving Party {2014}

#fall #pumpkincarving #party #halloween #tablescape



It has become a tradition in our family to have a Pumpkin Carving Party each fall a few weeks before Halloween. I LOVE this holiday, so hosting this is one of the highlights of fall for me. I always make my delicious chili recipe (which my husband keeps under lock and key...well, almost) and we have lots of fun fall treats to go along with it. Everyone brings their own pumpkin and we spend the afternoon carving, then enjoy dinner together. (This year was even capped off watching the Kansas City Royals win yet another playoff game - EEK! It's been nearly 30 years since this last occurred, so the buzz created by this is really a big deal!)

Maple Bacon Donuts {dairy, egg + gluten free}

#glutenfree #dairyfree #eggfree #maple #bacon #donuts

Our kids love it when I make Mini Pancake Muffins for breakfast. They're delicious and fun. Since it is such a simple and versatile recipe, I decided to try something a little different using the same ingredients. With the slight hint of maple flavor and the soft, not-too-sweet pancake texture, I decided they needed a little addition of coffee and bacon. These are fun and sophisticated at the same time. What could be better?!

Apple Cider Glazed Donuts {gluten free + vegan}

#glutenfree #vegan #apple #donuts #fall

I've been seeing lots of delicious looking baked donuts all over the place lately. I decided I wanted to try some and picked up a donut pan for cheap with a great coupon at Michael's. I have the Wilton brand pan that makes six donuts at a time, but this one that has 12 spots would be so much better. I may have to get it too!
