Easy Taco Chicken Spaghetti Squash Bowl (dairy-free, gluten-free, Whole30, Paleo)

I'm fairly certain I make some form of tacos on at least a weekly basis. Shredded pork, beef, chicken, ground beef, ground turkey...you name it, I'll make it into a taco salad, soft taco.... you get the idea. While I could probably eat tacos for every meal and be perfectly happy, I'm not sure my family feels the same way. Because of this, I've been trying to mix things up a bit and add some new options to our weekly meal plan.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies (dairy + gluten free)

I've always been a fan of peanut butter cookies and oatmeal cookies. These Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies are the best of both worlds combined! I started making this recipe for my kids over five years ago. Though it has always been a recipe of very few ingredients, I've adapted it over the years to use certified gluten-free oats and coconut sugar so they still enjoy the cookies and I feel a bit better about what I'm feeding them.

Guacamole (gluten-free, vegan, Whole30, Paleo)

My favorite dip/appetizer/topping for just about anything is, hands-down, guacamole. Any time we have food days at work or I need to bring a side dish to an event, I will always go for a big batch of guac with some chips alongside. It's kinda my thing.

Apple Cinnamon Quick Bread (dairy + gluten free)

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!

When I was in college, my roommate worked at a really upscale restaurant as a server. I would spend my evenings hanging out at the restaurant as she was about to end her shift and, while I was waiting, I would get to taste-test some really amazing desserts. Thus my love of creme brûlée was born.

Citrus flavors just scream "Summer" to me and I'm loving lime right now just about as much as I love lemon. This was a fun take on Key Lime Pie using minimal ingredients, vegan and gluten free, and very similar to a cheesecake dessert. While I love these Key Lime Squares, lemon, being my first love, will definitely be the next flavor I will make of this delicious dessert!

Frozen Peanut Butter Pie {gluten free + vegan}

This is my second entry for #FrozenFridays Recipe Contest over at Go Dairy Free featuring So Delicious Dairy Free Frozen Desserts and I'm super excited to share it with you! While it's an incredibly easy dessert to prepare, it tastes like you spent hours pulling it all together.

Lemon Meringue Pie Ice Cream {dairy + gluten free}

We are loving these fun summer days and hot summer nights. We've spent so much time swimming, playing outside until the sun sets, and just enjoying our time together. The midwestern heat is beginning to get the best of us though, and we've needed some new frozen treats to cool off with!

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.

Toasted Turkey Bacon Club Sandwich (dairy + gluten free)

There is a local brewery in our town that has been one of my favorite restaurants for years. However, if you're looking for dairy-free or gluten-free choices, the options are few and far between. We don't visit very often anymore, but I still think about some of my favorite foods from the past, like a delicious club sandwich.

I was just recently talking about our healthier eating plan around here (which I followed up with a dessert post - ha!), and here is one example of our healthier breakfast choices! I've been seeing Chia Pudding recipes everywhere. They're super versatile and you can really add any flavors you like, plus mix-ins, toppings, etc.

How are the New Year's Resolutions going? So far so good over here, which is why it's been a bit quiet on the site this past month. My eating habits got a bit (read: a lot) lax toward the end of 2016 and needed reigned back in. It's so easy to make excuses and put off cleaning up bad habits during the holidays.

Champagne Cupcakes {dairy + gluten free}

Happy New Year's Eve! If I'd planned better this week, I would've had this recipe up with a few extra days to spare, but time got away from me! The good news is, this recipe calls for ingredients that most of us probably already have on hand! If you're a fan of my Strawberry Cupcakes, this is a very similar recipe, except the liquid is replaced with champagne - perfect for today!

Mini Cranberry Orange Spice Cakes {dairy + gluten free}

It's no secret that one of my favorite flour blends to bake with is Namaste Foods Perfect Flour Blend. When I was asked by Namaste Foods to review some additional products, I couldn't pass up the opportunity. I always have fantastic results with the flour blend, and I've tried a few of their products in the past, but I really wanted to try the Spice Cake Mix

Triple Chocolate Fudge Brownies {gluten free + vegan}

I recently had the opportunity to become a Rodelle Brand Ambassador. I have only seen their vanilla extract in my local stores, and it is one of my favorite brands to use in baked goods. After perusing their website and seeing all of the fantastic products they make, I knew I had to try the gourmet baking cocoa and organic chocolate extract (say what?!). Chocolate extract. Yum.

Christmas Popcorn Snack Mix {gluten free + vegan}

One of our family favorite snacks has got to be our popcorn snack mixes. We love to create fun, festive mixes with treats we love. Our S'mores Popcorn Snack Mix and our Lucky Leprechaun Snack Mix are just two examples of some of the mixes we make. We always start with popcorn (either fresh popped and lightly salted, or Skinny Pop brand to save some time), then we add in sweet and salty treats from pretzels, to marshmallows, cereal, candy...whatever our hearts desire.

Turtle Cheesecake Bites {gluten free + vegan}

Before kids (and before food allergies), my favorite dessert to make was cheesecake. I would experiment with flavors, topping, you name it. One of my favorite cheesecakes was turtle, with crunchy pecans, sweet caramel and rich chocolate. It has been years since I have made it, but I still think about making that recipe frequently.

Soft Caramel Candy {gluten free + vegan}

I've been loving homemade caramel lately. Being able to make a delicious, dairy-free version to add to recipes like my caramel apple crisp or my caramel apple blondies, plus a couple of new recipes coming very soon, has been fun and exciting. I know, I'm kind of a nerd for thinking food is exciting, but as a food allergy parent, sometimes that is a part of this life. Do you ever get excited and do a happy dance in the grocery store when you discover a new, safe product to feed your child? I certainly do. More often than not, I do the same thing in my kitchen when I create a new recipe!
