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.

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.

Blackberry Hand Pies (gluten free + vegan)

I'm just loving blackberries at the moment. My littlest kiddo is a fan of just about any fruit, but blackberries, raspberries and blueberries are definite favorites. If he even catches a glimpse of them, he starts saying "apple, apple, apple" (he calls everything "apple" right now) and will throw a fit if he doesn't get them. Needless to say, it is difficult to keep any of them around the house for very long. This child would eat a pint of berries in one sitting if I would let him!

Mint Chocolate Chip Cupcakes (dairy + gluten free)

It's birthday week! Or.... really just an excuse to make cupcakes. ;)

I always try and create a new cake/dessert recipe for my birthday, because no one else in this house is making me a cake, and buying one really isn't much of an option. Last year it was these amazing strawberry cupcakes, that are probably my favorite ever. I posted the question on my Facebook page about what flavor I should try this year, and as soon as I read "Mint Chocolate Chip" I knew that was it!

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.

Banana Cream Pie Cake {dairy + gluten free}

While banana cream pie might not be what comes to mind when you think of holiday recipes, but around Thanksgiving, we were looking for a yummy dessert idea that was different than your usual pumpkin and pecan pies. I decided to mix it up a bit with this banana cream pie cake, and I was not disappointed. Soft, fluffy cake, vanilla pudding, sweet bananas, and cool creamy whipped topping was a perfect detour from the usual fall desserts. I am definitely going to be making this recipe during the spring and summer too!

Cranberry Orange Biscuits {gluten free + vegan}

I have a memory from my childhood of these delicious cinnamon raisin biscuits that my mom would take me to get from a fast food restaurant. They were soft, flaky, slightly salty with pops of sweet raisins, and topped with a sweet, creamy glaze.

I have always wanted to recreate those glorious biscuits but dairy- and gluten-free, of course. But I decided I would mix things up a bit and use tart, fresh cranberries instead of raisins, and add in bright orange zest for a pop. I didn't make a glaze for these, but they would be amazing with a simple powdered sugar/dairy free milk icing drizzled over the top.

Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla Almond Buttercream (gluten free + vegan)

When you have food allergies or intolerances, it's imperative that you have a good, go-to cake recipe that it easily thrown together. It seems like we are always having to prepare a safe dessert or treat for impromptu parties. While I love trying to come up with new ideas, sometimes I don't have the time to plan ahead and am scrambling to come up with something in a pinch.

HBD to Us! Caramel Apple Crisp {gluten free + vegan}

Guess what today is!? It's the 4th Anniversary of Making it Milk-free! I cannot believe I've been blogging here for this long. When I think back to when I started and all that I have learned these years, it is so amazing! It truly is a labor of love here, and while we have moments of struggle (like the nine months I simultaneously was pregnant and had writers block), the exciting moments are just that much more rewarding and fun. This little love of cooking-food allergy advocacy-turned hobby of mine has been such an adventure. If you have been following along this whole time or if you found us just recently, THANK YOU for your support and for checking out our recipes!

In honor of this special day, I'm sharing one of my favorite (new) fall dessert recipes. This is the time of year I start to plan for upcoming holiday treats, desserts, meals, etc. While pumpkin-everything seems to steal the show more often than not, apple flavors are everywhere as well. I always have grand plans to make a caramel apples or other apple-flavored treats this time of year, and this was no exception.

Hazelnut Cookie Bars with Chocolate Peanut Butter Ganache {dairy +gluten free}

I'm taking a break from all things pumpkin for the time being. The time to prepare for Thanksgiving meals is quickly approaching, but I was in the mood for something different. This recipe is exactly that!

Chai Spiced Zucchini Bread with Cardamom + Vanilla Bean Glaze {dairy +gluten free}

There isn't much I love more than relaxing on a cool fall morning with a steaming cup of coffee and a slice of freshly baked bread for breakfast. Whether it's pumpkin bread, banana bread, or this amazing cinnamon apple bread, I don't discriminate. I just love the slightly sweet, but mostly spicy and comforting fall flavors.

Pumpkin Roll Cake with Whipped Cinnamon Cream Cheese Filling {dairy + gluten free}

Making a Pumpkin Cake Roll has been in my to-do list every fall for as long as I can remember. Not only because I love pumpkin and other flavors the season brings, but because they're simply beautiful. They look elegant and elaborate but are actually not as difficult as they seem.

Pumpkin Spice Sugar Cookies {gluten free + vegan}

I love to make my roll-out sugar cookies for the holidays. Halloween and Christmas are the two holidays that stick out in my mind as ones that my mom would make her sugar cookies and we would get to help frost them. I loved the pumpkins and black cats the most.

Peach Blackberry Pie {gluten free + vegan}

I'm loving the end of summer, fresh, ripe fruit I can find in our local grocery stores these days. Fresh Colorado peaches everywhere! I decided I couldn't pass them up and was craving a peach pie something fierce. But my newest love when it comes to fruit is blackberries. I found some organic blackberries on sale and had to have them too.

Pistachio Lime Zucchini Donuts {dairy + gluten free}

We are back to school and our old daily routines are going in full force! It's been a crazy few weeks around here getting back into the swing of things. Hopefully we'll find our way here soon and I'll stop feeling like I'm forgetting everything every single day. Gah! I'm ready for a relaxing vacation any time now.

Summer Berry Cobbler (gluten free + vegan)

What could be better in the heat of the summer than some fresh, bright, sweet summer berries turned into a delicious berry cobbler? Well, if said cobbler were semi-homemade, using just a few ingredients, plus baked and served in a rustic cast iron skillet, it might just be the perfect dessert for your summer BBQ or dinner party.

Lemon Layer Cake {gluten free + vegan}

Last month we had a little guy baptized at the church where I grew up. It was a nice, intimate family gathering and we had everyone who was able to make it join us at my parents' house for lunch afterward. My dad grilled burgers and my mom had prepared the side dishes. I brought an allergy-friendly pasta salad and dessert.

Lemon Blueberry Oat Bars {gluten free + vegan}

You may have noticed my obsession with all things lemon these days (or always). Interestingly enough, I never knew the difference between a "regular" lemon and Meyer lemons. I've heard of Meyer lemons and that they are delicious, but I never knew why. I found that my local grocery store had bags of Meyer lemons on sale last week and I was intrigued to taste the difference for myself.

From what I have read, Meyer's are kind of a cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange. Personally I noticed they are slightly less tart than a regular lemon but still with a bright, fresh flavor. I decided they would be perfect for my Lemon Blueberry Oat Bars and boy, was I right. (I am positive these bars would be just as delicious with regular lemons if you cannot find Meyers.)
