Roll-out Sugar Cookies (Vegan + gluten free)

Growing up, my mom's sugar cookies were one of my favorite treats. I remember making them at Easter, Halloween and Christmas with all of the cute holiday cookie cutter shapes we could find. They were this perfect, almost buttery consistency. Not too soft and not too crunchy, topped with a sweet and simple glaze of icing.

I haven't been able to enjoy those delicious cookies for awhile now, so I decided to use her recipe to create a version our whole family could partake in. With a few substitutions to make it dairy-, gluten-, and egg-free, all I had to do was use safe and trusted brands that are soy- and nut-free as well. Making this roll-out dough gluten-free proved to be a little tricky, but after adjusting the flour measurements, they were the perfect consistency.

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 Chip Cookies (top 8 + gluten free)

These chocolate chip cookies are ones that I've been making for a few years now. I took a favorites recipe of my mom has had since I was a child and modified it slightly to be gluten-free, dairy-free and egg-free. As an added bonus, they're free of the top 8 allergens (they do have coconut). They are a definite family favorite! 

They're slightly crunchy on the edges and soft in the middle. I like to make a double batch and freeze half so I can bake up a few whenever we want a sweet treat. Bonus, if you have this dough in your freezer, you can bake up just enough to use the cookies in my Chocolate Chip Cookie Mousse Cups, or even some awesome Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

Lemon Cream Pie {top 8 + gluten free}

It is beginning to feel like spring around here, though I can't complain too much as our winter has been very mild compared to typical Midwestern winters. I have all things spring on the brain too, so it has arrived at the perfect time! I don't often go all out with decorating around the house for specific holidays, but more for the season. Although I've picked up quite a few cute items from Target so there are a few bunnies around for the time being!

Berry Bubbly Gelatin Bites

I really enjoy finding fun treats for the kids to enjoy that I feel better about during these candy-filled holidays. When I know they can have something healthy that is delicious and an out of the ordinary treat, it is a win-win for all of us! I created my Berry Fizz Mocktail recipe and then decided to make these gelatin treats to go along with our Valentine's brunch. 

Not only were they amazingly simple to make ahead of time, they're also super easy to modify for any holiday and flavor you want. You can also make them a grown-up treat by replacing the sparkling grape juice with champagne! :)

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."

Homemade Applesauce

#applesauce #allergyfriendly #dairyfree #glutenfree #vegan Now that I've temporarily moved from the obsessed-with-all-things-pumpkin phase into the apple-everything phase, I thought I'd share with you my recipe for homemade applesauce. I used to buy the biggest container of unsweetened applesauce I could find at the grocery store because our boys eat it like it's going out of style. I bought a 5-pound bag of apples one time thinking they would eat those just as well...unfortunately that is not what happened.

Dark Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal Cookies {gluten free + vegan}

#glutenfree #vegan #darkchocolate #tartcherry #oatmeal #cookies

When it comes to cookies, oatmeal have always been my favorite. Not the kind with raisins, chocolate chips, or any other additions mixed in. Soft and chewy, warm and filled with spicy cinnamon...yep, those are the best kind.

However, as much as I love to mix different flavors and textures together, it is fun to experiment with an old favorite on occasion. This recipe stemmed from my new-found love of dark chocolate and tart dried cherries. Add that to my love of oatmeal cookies and this recipe has quickly become one of my all-time favorites!

Coffee Cake Muffins {dairy, gluten + egg free}

Prior to Easter, I was super ambitious and had planned to share all of our brunch recipes before "the" day. But the hustle and excitement that naturally comes with holidays caused me to fall a little bit behind. The silver lining is that the recipes are absolutely perfect for any day of the week!

When I was a kid, my mom made the BEST coffee cake, mostly on the occasional Sunday morning. It was fluffy and warm with just the right amount of sweet brown sugar topping. I've wanted to recreate it forever. These coffee cake muffins are perfectly soft, not too sweet, and topped with a warm cinnamon sugar crumble. Enjoy them straight from the oven or reheat them for a quick on-the-go breakfast.

Perfect Cinnamon Rolls {top 8 + gluten free}

#glutenfree #dairyfree #cinnamonrolls

While I thought I'd found my favorite dairy-free, gluten-free cinnamon roll recipe awhile ago, I decided that anything can be improved. So I set to work trying to perfect it. It can be tricky to get gluten-free baked goods to come out perfect. They're often too dense or crumbly. It took several failed attempts and many taste-testing sessions, but it's finally just right!
