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.

Sparkling Pear Sangria

This pretty, festive drink is one we enjoyed as part of our Thanksgiving meal, and I fully intend to make it again for Christmas (and possibly even New Year's Eve). It is bright, crisp and delicious. Not to mention a beautiful addition to a holiday meal!

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 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.

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.

Apple Pie Pizza {gluten-free + vegan}

When faced with a boxed pizza crust mix, the logical thing to do would be to make a savory pizza recipe with it. I plan to, but first I knew I wanted to recreate a dessert pizza that I remember from my childhood. Enjoy Life Foods Pizza Crust Mix has enough of a neutral flavor that it works well with both savory and sweet toppings. Because I added so much in the way of sweet toppings, it actually helped to not have a sweet crust underneath.

Apple Crumble Bars {gluten free + vegan}

#glutenfree #vegan #applecrumble #dessert

This crumble has a buttery shortbread-style crust, warm, gooey apple filling, and a struesel-like, sweet topping. Top it with some So Delicious Dairy Free CocoWhip Coconut Whipped Topping while it is still warm, and you have a perfect dessert for any time of year!

Pumpkin Pie {gluten free + vegan}

#glutenfree #vegan #pumpkin #thanksgiving #pie

Pumpkin Pie is one of those classic necessities that just rounds out any Thanksgiving feast. As a teenager, my mom and I spent quite some time trying to create the perfect pumpkin pie, from crust to filling. We finally came up with our favorite one and it has been a staple each year since then. But what happens when you can no longer eat the pie you made because the crust contains gluten, or you cannot share it with your child because it contains milk and they are allergic? Why, you adapt it of course!

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.

Cream of Celery Soup {gluten free + vegan}

#glutenfree #vegan #soup

So many recipes call for Cream of [insert food item here] Soup, it seems almost impossible to make them dairy- and gluten-free and still keep the integrity of the recipe. Since the canned version is out of the question for us, I am always looking for a healthy, safe recipe to replace this item.

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!)

Apple Cider Glazed Donuts {gluten free + vegan}

#glutenfree #vegan #apple #donuts #fall

I've been seeing lots of delicious looking baked donuts all over the place lately. I decided I wanted to try some and picked up a donut pan for cheap with a great coupon at Michael's. I have the Wilton brand pan that makes six donuts at a time, but this one that has 12 spots would be so much better. I may have to get it too!

Apple Cider Molasses Muffins {gluten free + vegan}

#glutenfree #vegan #apple #cider #muffins


I've been trying to incorporate apple cider into muffin recipes for weeks now. None of them had the flavor I was hoping for. Once I made this amazing Apple Cider Molasses recipe, I knew it was perfect for muffins. I love the addition of molasses in Gingersnap Cookies and gingerbread so I knew it would make a fantastic texture for these muffins. They're perfectly soft, slightly chewy, not too sweet and so delicious while they're still warm.

Apple Cider Molasses

#apple #cider #molasses #fall

Apple Cider Molasses...did you know there was such a thing? I sure didn't, but when I stumbled across several mentions of it, I was intrigued. I was researching the best way to reduce apple cider to make the swirl for my Cinnamon Harvest Apple Cider Ice Cream and decided to add this little treasure to my to-make list.

I bought a half-gallon of delicious cider from a nearby cider mill and only used a bit for the ice cream recipe. Using the remainder of the jug, I set to work making the molasses. The beauty of this idea is that you are condensing all of the sweet, bright, spicy goodness that is apple cider into a thick and delicious syrup.

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.

Cinnamon Apple Cider Ice Cream {gluten free + vegan}

#vegan #glutenfree #fallrecipes #icecream #applecider

Just when I thought all of the pumpkin recipes were making it feel like fall is just around the corner, this creamy, decadent, cinnamon-apple-filled ice cream has taken the cake. My usual ice cream recipes do not require an ice cream machine, but I really enjoyed how this one changed things up. With bits of sweet apples, the warm and spicy cinnamon and a smooth apple cider syrup swirl, it is packed with sophisticated flavors, but is fun for everyone to enjoy. And the best part... it is vegan too!

Kale Noodle Soup {top 8 + gluten free}

#glutenfree #dairyfree #soup #fallrecipes

With the mid-western winter weather upon us, I've been in the mood for a delicious soup to make being cooped up at home even warmer and cozier.

Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats {gluten free + vegan}

I used to be a morning person. Mainly when Mason was a baby and I didn't sleep much anyway. I would wake up at 4 or 5 in the morning every day, make a healthy breakfast, watch morning news shows, get all of our 58 bags together for work, daycare, etc., and still have plenty of time to cuddle with my babe before heading out the door.

Now that I have a 5 1/2 year old and have rediscovered how much I love my sleep, our mornings are slightly more hectic. Thankfully we live right next to our school, but I also have about a 20 minute drive to work each morning. If I don't pack everything we need the night before, there's a really good chance something will be forgotten.
