Apple Pie Sangria

Every October, we host my husband's family for a pumpkin carving party in the week or so leading up to Halloween. It's one of my favorite times of year and we started it the year we got married so it's been a fun tradition through the years.

Halloween Treat Round-up | 20 dairy-free + gluten-free recipes


As if it wasn’t already abundantly obvious from the slew of posts that happen during the month of October over here, Halloween, and Fall in general, are my favorite parts of the year. There are so many fun, creative, unique snack ideas that can be made allergy-friendly with ease. I'm sharing this compilation of some of my absolute favorite Halloween-themed recipes that are dairy free and gluten free, and are perfect for parties or just a fun treat for you own kiddos. Enjoy!

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.

Teal Pumpkin Project

I love that so many companies are making it easier for families to participate in the Teal Pumpkin Project this year. I was so excited about the movement the first year it began, and my love for this effort has just continued to grow. There are so many reasons to swap out the usual candy treats for some fun, non-food items instead. I know my kids love getting little prizes and appreciate them much more than a few pieces of candy, which we inevitably end up getting rid of not too long after collecting it.

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!

Scarecrow Crunch Trail Mix {dairy + gluten free}

It may not quite be fall here yet, but I'm in the mood for fall flavors, colors, and some much cooler weather. Our Dollar Tree store stocked our favorite allergy-friendly candy corn and mellow-creme pumpkins (unless you have egg and soy allergies...sorry!), so I stocked up on several bags. This snack mix is one of the easiest to throw together and satisfies that sweet + salty craving.

Keep it Teal: the Teal Pumpkin Project

Teal Ombre Pumpkin with Glitter & Teal Mummy Pumpkin by Making it Milk-free | Teal Pumpkin Project | makingitmilkfree.com

If you haven't heard of the Teal Pumpkin Project yet, you're probably living under a rock. I kid...sort of. The Teal Pumpkin Project has been all over social media this fall. The campaign was launched in 2014 by Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) to raise awareness of food allergies. It also is a way to encourage others to include people with food allergies in the fun of trick-or-treating on Halloween by handing out non-food items instead of just candy, which many with allergies are unable to fully enjoy. Find out more about how you can participate in the Teal Pumpkin Project™.

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!

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!)

Pumpkin Carving Party :: 2013

At the request of one of a very persuasive niece, we hosted a family pumpkin carving party this past weekend. It is something we have done before with the intention of making it an annual event. Unfortunately I always forget until after Halloween is over. 

Two of our nieces grow pumpkins in their garden each year, giving us a ton of them to choose from. I made a big batch of homemade chili and some festive snacks (everything was dairy-free and gluten-free). Here are a few quick pictures I snapped:
