Easy Taco Chicken Spaghetti Squash Bowl (dairy-free, gluten-free, Whole30, Paleo)

I'm fairly certain I make some form of tacos on at least a weekly basis. Shredded pork, beef, chicken, ground beef, ground turkey...you name it, I'll make it into a taco salad, soft taco.... you get the idea. While I could probably eat tacos for every meal and be perfectly happy, I'm not sure my family feels the same way. Because of this, I've been trying to mix things up a bit and add some new options to our weekly meal plan.

Enchilada Stuffed Peppers (dairy-free, gluten-free, Whole30, Paleo)

Trying to find a happy medium between healthy, Whole30 friendly meals and things my children will eat without complaining seems a bit like a full-time job lately. I feel like I've gotten back into a really good routine with meal planning and prepping, and for the most part, meals have been well-received by the Hubs and these boys of ours. Although, our littlest is in this "I won't eat anything unless it comes on a wooden stick or in plastic packaging" phase right now. (I'm telling myself we'll make it through this stage soon without wishing away any of his cute little two-year old quirks.)

Almond Crusted Chicken (dairy-free, gluten-free, Whole30, Paleo)

This recipe is one that I first began making for my family nearly five years ago. Each and every time it's been a hit. It also happens to fit into our meal plan perfectly this month. I'm doing a Whole30 and, by default since I'm the cook, the rest of the family is to some extent as well. This recipe is easy to make, healthy, real ingredients and so versatile you can serve it with any sides.

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.

Grilled Shrimp Boil Kabobs (dairy + gluten free)

Our summer meals primarily consist of either tossing something on the grill, or throwing something together quickly before heading off to games, practices, the pool, etc. When we can find a few free evenings to enjoy a slower paced meal, I try to mix it up a bit and try new things, but still try to do our cooking outdoors as much as possible. I can't stand heating up the house by using the oven or stove when it's already a scorcher!

One of our family favorites is a good, old fashioned seafood boil. We've gone all out with crab legs before, which can get a little pricey, especially if you're trying to feed a crowd. Every now and then though, we like to enjoy the food without all the fuss. I've done shrimp boil packets many times as well, but this kabob version is super simple and easy to prep ahead. While a full blown seafood boil is great, this shrimp only version cuts the cost a bit and there's no need to stand over a huge pot of boiling water to enjoy the same flavors.

Easy Homemade Waffles {gluten free + vegan}

Have you heard of the phenomenon that is aquafaba? I suppose it isn't really a phenomenon, but it's a pretty sweet discovery, that I'm sure has probably been around a lot longer than I personally realize. Aquafaba is basically the starchy liquid left from a can of chickpeas or other beans, and it can be used as a replacer for egg whites. It whips up into this light and airy fluff that seems to be a perfect meringue-like texture. 

I'm in awe every time I see a new recipe created using it and have been intrigued for awhile now. I finally tried it and it is everything it's cracked up to be! All I did was pour the liquid into the bowl of my stand mixer, add a pinch of cream of tartar (not sure if this is even necessary), and turned the speed up. A few quick minutes later and I had a giant bowl of this amazing stuff! 

I wasn't sure exactly what my plans were at that point, but it was early morning so I decided to fold it into waffle batter to make the texture like it would be if you were to fold in whipped egg whites. My waffles were light and airy with a slightly crispy edge, just the way I like them. I also used Namaste Foods Raw Goods Quinoa Flour for an added protein punch. I've also used their gluten-free all purpose flour blend with spectacular results.

Lemon Layer Cake {gluten free + vegan}

Last month we had a little guy baptized at the church where I grew up. It was a nice, intimate family gathering and we had everyone who was able to make it join us at my parents' house for lunch afterward. My dad grilled burgers and my mom had prepared the side dishes. I brought an allergy-friendly pasta salad and dessert.

Lemon Blueberry Oat Bars {gluten free + vegan}

You may have noticed my obsession with all things lemon these days (or always). Interestingly enough, I never knew the difference between a "regular" lemon and Meyer lemons. I've heard of Meyer lemons and that they are delicious, but I never knew why. I found that my local grocery store had bags of Meyer lemons on sale last week and I was intrigued to taste the difference for myself.

From what I have read, Meyer's are kind of a cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange. Personally I noticed they are slightly less tart than a regular lemon but still with a bright, fresh flavor. I decided they would be perfect for my Lemon Blueberry Oat Bars and boy, was I right. (I am positive these bars would be just as delicious with regular lemons if you cannot find Meyers.)

Southwest Chipotle Dip

In the past couple of weeks, I have been enjoying my Foster Farms Gluten Free Corn Dogs immensely. Although I am a fan of mustard with my corn dogs, I was really wanting to switch things up a bit with a different dipping sauce. I decided a smoky, slightly sweet sauce would be perfect. Add a little cayenne if you like some heat too!

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.

Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches {gluten-free + vegan}

Did you know that Enjoy Life Foods now has boxed mixes? I was so excited when I found this out because Enjoy Life is one of our absolute favorite, go-to brands when it comes to allergy-friendly, safe treats. I recently had the opportunity to try out one of each of their new mixes and let me tell you, they were fantastic!

Grasshopper Pie {gluten free + vegan}

My apologies for being a little M.I.A. since around Christmastime, but thank you for hanging in here! What started as a fun winter/holiday break quickly turned into a sickness-filled couple of weeks for our little family. Shortly after the new year began, we found out that we are expecting! Our family of four will be a family of five in early September and we are SO excited!

I have felt pretty awful for the most part these past few months, but I am thrilled to say that I am (finally) regaining my energy and not feeling sick as often. Just in time for spring - thank goodness!

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies {dairy, egg, soy + gluten free}

I have seen photos of Chocolate Crinkle Cookies floating around the internet the past few weeks and I love how beautiful they look. I assumed there had to be some elaborate trick to making them look so pretty, but once I began reading about them, they are actually super simple! The powdered sugar coating adds a hint of sweetness which transforms the flavor of your ordinary chocolate cookies.

You can really use just about any chocolate cookie recipe. I love making my Chocolate Brownie Cookies. In a pinch, I have also used Immaculate Baking Company's Gluten Free Fudge Brownie Cookie Dough, which I typically keep in my freezer for last minute cookie cravings (mostly for safe school treats quickly, actually). This dough contains eggs and soy. They have a warning on the label regarding the company's manufacturing processes due to being made in a facility that processes other allergens as well. We typically avoid foods/products made in a facility where milk is used, but there are a few companies who label well and are forthcoming with their processes that I do feel comfortable with them.

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!

Spinach Artichoke Dip {gluten free + vegan}

I have always been a fan of spinach artichoke dip. Warm, gooey and cheesy, it is a delicious appetizer or perfect compliment to grilled or baked chicken. I have enjoyed the traditional version since my son's milk allergy diagnosis, but have anxiety any time I eat something that contains his allergen. Plus, I recently decided to cut dairy out of my diet again, so this dairy-free version is a fantastic substitute.

Some of my favorite, go-to brands make an appearance in the recipe too: So Delicious Dairy Free (culinary coconut milk), Go Veggie Foods (vegan Parmesan style topping), and Just Mayo (egg-free mayonnaise). If you have a favorite dairy-free cheese alternative that does not contain soy, feel free to replace the Parmesan with what works for you.

White Chocolate Nog Fudge {dairy, egg, gluten + nut free}

Fudge is one of those traditional Christmas treats that just have to be made every year. Unfortunately most fudge recipes contain some if not all of our allergens. This year, I set out to make an allergy-friendly version that my little one and I could enjoy along with everyone else who would never even know the difference.

#dairyfree #eggfree #glutenfree #nutfree

I love the variety of So Delicious Dairy Free holiday drinks that are abundant this season. The delicious Nog is a fun and sweet treat. I have used it in previous years in breakfast recipes for Christmas morning, like my Nog French Toast Bake. I decided this year to try it in a dessert recipe as well.

Ginger Molasses Cookies {gluten free + vegan}

#glutenfree #dairyfree #eggfree #cookies #Christmas

Last Christmas, these Ginger Molasses Cookies were my absolute favorite. The rich molasses and ginger flavors meld together perfectly. I love that these cookies are not overly sweet. I adapted my recipe this year to be egg-free, as well as being free of the other top allergens!

Chocolate Cream Pie {gluten free + vegan}

Last year for Christmas, I made an absolutely delicious old-fashioned Chocolate Cream Pie to mix things up from the traditional pumpkin, pecan, or apple pies. The recipe, adapted from King Arthur Flour really turned out deliciously. It was such a hit that I decided that I would make that same recipe each year from now on.
