Whole Wheat Banana Bread Dairy and Egg Free

Whole Wheat Banana Bread | Dairy and Egg Free

Ah, banana bread.  A breakfast staple in so many homes.  But too often the recipe is something I wouldn’t give to Sweet Pea before leaving the house, either because she’s allergic to half of the ingredients or because she would be so hyped up on sugar that everyone around us …

Tropical Paradise Cookies | Dairy, Egg, and Nut Free

Hello.  My name is Kristin and have a cookie addiction.  Fortunately (or unfortunately!), I also have a baking addiction.  Usually my impulses can be subdued by baking bread, or cupcakes for dinner with the neighbors, or muffins for breakfast.  But this weekend, the cookie craving would not go away.  It …

No Bake Nut Free Granola - Dairyland Mashup

No-Bake Granola | Nut Free

So, today’s recipe was created by accident.  I was doing some experimenting with granola bar recipes, trying to adapt some I found to be nut-free and friendly to ingredients that I usually keep at home.  I finally settled on a list of ingredients and a technique.  I got down to …

Baked Risotto with Sausage and Lemon | Dairy Free

I’ve always been afraid of risotto.  I LOVE eating it in Italian restaurants.  It’s creamy and delicious, and a wonderful comfort food.  But the technique scares the ___ out of me.  Mostly because I’m afraid of making a mistake and ending up with a pile of rice-like goo.  But also …

Coconut Chicken Curry | Dairy Free

I have to make a confession.  There are a lot of days when I hate cooking around our allergies.  Hate. It.  As in, I would rather run screaming out of the house than try to think of something to cook for dinner that all three of us can eat without …

Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls | Dairy, Egg, and Nut Free

Oh, caramel apples.  One of the highlights of fall, and certainly our trip to the pumpkin patch, is getting a warm, gooey, caramel apple coated with chocolate-covered sunflower seeds.  Except this year, Sweet Pea is old enough to understand that I’m eating something different, and is old enough to throw …
