Sausage Potato + Egg Quiche (dairy-free, gluten free, Whole30, Paleo)

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.

Overnight Mashed Potatoes {gluten free + vegan}

Thanksgiving is officially two days away. I would imagine most of you already have your menu planned, if you are doing the cooking. But if you're at all like me, I often find myself scrambling to throw things together at the last minute. I also like to put a spin on traditional recipes whenever possible. This recipe solves both of those issues for me.

Peppermint Bark Puppy Chow {gluten free, vegan + nut free}

Puppy Chow (or Muddy Buddies) has always been a favorite treat in our family. I like to mix up the flavors for special occasions or holidays. Traditionally, Puppy Chow is made with peanut butter, but I think it works just fine and tastes great with just a chocolate coating.

Since I found Premium Chocolatiers Milkless Polar Dream dairy-free white chocolate bars, I knew I wanted to make a peppermint bark version of puppy chow. Perfectly sweet and crunchy, the minty mixture of dark chocolate and white chocolate with peppermint is amazing!

Egg-free Marshmallow Creme

The brands of pre-made marshmallow creme (or fluff) that I have found in stores have been dairy-free, so they work if I am using them for something we will just have here at home. Being that I have one niece and one nephew allergic to eggs, I like to have another option when I'm making a recipe that calls for marshmallow creme so that it can be safe for them too.

I have seen a pre-made, egg-free brand at Whole Foods, but the nearest store is over an hour away from us. Not the easiest thing to pick up in a pinch. This recipe is easy to make, and if used quickly, easy to handle. It will begin to set up as it cools, lending that creamy, fluffy, stretchy consistency.

Green Bean Casserole {gluten free + vegan}

#glutenfree #dairyfree #vegan #sides #Thanksgiving

I don't know that I have ever really liked green bean casserole. I remember it being on the table every Thanksgiving, but I do not recall every actually trying it. Having a child with a severe milk allergy and avoiding gluten and dairy myself the past few years, the occasion to try it recently just has not come up.

Broccoli Salad {gluten free + vegan}

#glutenfree #dairyfree #eggfree #soyfree #simple #vegetable #sidedishes

One of my favorite things to do during the summer is grilling out with friends. Of course, tons of food is always involved. I love to lighted things up with a cold summer veggie salad. This dressing is one of my favorites as well. It is perfectly sweet and tangy, creamy and delicious. It is amazingly versatile too. You can use just broccoli and onion, or add other vegetables like cold peas, cauliflower, or cherry tomatoes. Topping with cooked, crumbled bacon, or shredded dairy-free or regular cheese before serving would be delicious too!

Raspberry Chipotle Shredded Pork (dairy & gluten-free)

#glutenfree #dairyfree #dinner #pork

Some time ago I bought a bottle of Raspberry Chipotle sauce in the condiment section of the grocery store, not really knowing what I was going to use it for. So I began experimenting. I usually don't measure when I'm making dinner, unless I'm creating a specific new recipe. I just throw in a little of this, a little of that, and then adjust as I go along. I'm going to do my best to give you some actual measurements here, but trust me when I say it doesn't matter. This is one of those recipes that you cannot screw up!
