Dairy, Egg and Nut-Free Butter Crescents: The Most Versatile Cookie EVER!
I'm going out with a bang on this cookie week and saving the cookie with the most potential for last... butter crescents! This special treat was a staple in my childhood home during Christmastime, and I would bet that a majority of you have some variation of this cookie floating around in your holiday pasts, as well. The neat thing about this cookie is that it is SO incredibly versatile. My mom calls these "crescents" because she always forms the dough into crescent moon sha

Dairy, Egg & Nut-Free Oatmeal Coconut Cookies: A Twist On An Old-Fashioned Favorite
This is a new cookie in my holiday baking repertoire and so much fun! My mom came across this recipe recently and loved it so much that she encouraged me to try and alter it, using safe ingredients. I never know how that's going to turn out (as I've told you before, I've had just as many misses as hits when experimenting with allergy-safe ingredients), but this is an example of a winner that makes the process SO worth it! I'm so happy to say that this cookies are just perfec

Dairy, Egg, Nut & Gluten-Free Fudge? Yes, Please!
Oh, this is absolutely one of my lifelong favorites... FUDGE! No, it's technically not a cookie, but a must-share during this cookie week. As a kid, I have such vivid memories of both my mom and grandma bringing out the fudge along with the Christmas cookies at dessert time during the holidays. And, when you have food allergies - particularly a dairy allergy - it almost seems impossible that a decadent treat like this could actually be turned into a safe one. Well, guess wha

There are some priceless food moments that should absolutely take center stage in our homes this holiday season. On the top of this list for me? Christmas cookies!

It's a Christmas Miracle! The Pioneer Woman's Cinnamon Rolls... Dairy & Gluten-Free!
Everyone sit down. Seriously, this is one of the biggest food allergy wins of my almost decade-long journey in this world of ours. And, I can hardly believe that THIS recipe... the one that wowed me many moons ago when dairy allergies, in particular, weren't even on my radar... is just as delicious when made with dairy and wheat substitutions. I'm telling you, this recipe is the Pioneer Woman at her best, and it's a game changer. I love these cinnamon rolls so much that they'
