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.

Veggie-Go's Fruit + Veggie Snacks

I received this product for free from Moms Meet  to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links

Like most kids (I assume), my kiddos love fruit snacks. But I don't always feel good about giving them the sugar-filled treats very often. I worry that the more artificially sweetened, flavored, "junk" food they eat, the less I will be able to convince them to opt for food choices that are healthier for them.

Lemon Meringue Pie Ice Cream {dairy + gluten free}

We are loving these fun summer days and hot summer nights. We've spent so much time swimming, playing outside until the sun sets, and just enjoying our time together. The midwestern heat is beginning to get the best of us though, and we've needed some new frozen treats to cool off with!

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!

Mint Chocolate Chip Cupcakes (dairy + gluten free)

It's birthday week! Or.... really just an excuse to make cupcakes. ;)

I always try and create a new cake/dessert recipe for my birthday, because no one else in this house is making me a cake, and buying one really isn't much of an option. Last year it was these amazing strawberry cupcakes, that are probably my favorite ever. I posted the question on my Facebook page about what flavor I should try this year, and as soon as I read "Mint Chocolate Chip" I knew that was it!

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.

Champagne Cupcakes {dairy + gluten free}

Happy New Year's Eve! If I'd planned better this week, I would've had this recipe up with a few extra days to spare, but time got away from me! The good news is, this recipe calls for ingredients that most of us probably already have on hand! If you're a fan of my Strawberry Cupcakes, this is a very similar recipe, except the liquid is replaced with champagne - perfect for today!

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.

Salted Caramel Devil's Food Cake Cookies {dairy free}

We had a Christmas Treat Contest at work this past week and I had been thinking of making this recipe for awhile. It was the perfect reason to make them, although now I need to make another batch for us to enjoy here at home too! For the treat contest, I did not make these gluten free, however they were dairy free. Making a gluten free version is next up on my list. I'll let you know if they turn out as well as the original.

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!

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.

Hazelnut Cookie Bars with Chocolate Peanut Butter Ganache {dairy +gluten free}

I'm taking a break from all things pumpkin for the time being. The time to prepare for Thanksgiving meals is quickly approaching, but I was in the mood for something different. This recipe is exactly that!

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.

Lucky Leprechaun Snack Mix

St. Patrick's Day is one of those holidays that tends to sneak up on me every year. Once we make it through Valentine's Day, I always have Easter on my mind. Luckily I am usually able to come up with something sweet and simple for this somewhat overlooked holiday.
