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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pumpkins {dairy + gluten free}

This recipe is another fun Halloween or fall treat that I came up with while I was waiting for my Halloween Chocolate Bark to chill. I had some leftover chocolate and white chocolate/peanut butter, and I had picked up this really cute silicone pumpkin ice cube tray from Dollar Tree. It was pefect!

Halloween Chocolate Bark {dairy + gluten free}

This recipe was my favorite Halloween treat creation last year. I was on maternity leave, at home with my littlest, and had so much fun creating treats for the older boys to enjoy after school. I decided to mix it up a bit this year by doing a swirl instead of solid chocolate. But it is so delicious either way!

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.

S'mores Icebox Cake (vegan with a gluten-free option)

I love to bake and cook. But during the hot summer months, it can be nice to switch it up a bit with some no-bake recipes or grilling recipes so I can keep my kitchen (and the rest of the house) nice and cool while still enjoying some delicious food. 

S'mores are a quintessential summer treat. I love to incorporate the flavors of some classic favorites in fun new ways, and this S'mores Icebox Cake does that perfectly! By making it a day in advance and letting it set up in the refrigerator, the cookie/graham cracker layers get nice and soft to create a cake-like texture.
