St.Patty’s Day Shamrock Pancakes

It’s that time of year again! The time of year when you can add spinach to everything and call it a “St. Patty’s Day” treat. I’m Irish, my husband’s Irish and my married name even has an apostrophe in it. Needless to say, we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day around this house – rainbows, pots of […]

How To Never Run Out Of Dairy-free Cookies

With Valentine’s day approaching, my calendar is filled to the brim with parties. School parties, friend parties, gal parties…oh my!

Simple Breakfast Pie

This dish solves a major problem. No, not world peace. (However, it does bring me peace at mealtime which is MAJOR.) It solves the timing issue of a pulling together a traditional breakfast spread. Any seasoned breakfast-maker knows what you need for the morning trifecta:  eggs, meat and a carb (or two or three).  You also need condiments and syrups and spices and beverages.

Easy Dairy-Free Pesto!

Happy Labor Day! I hope you all had a fabulous holiday weekend. We went out of town and had a blast, but now, we’re paying for the great time with mountains of laundry, tired kids and a wildly overgrown yard. On the upside, we returned to a garden with more basil than I know what to do with. (I’m not complaining about […]
