Dairy Free Apple Pie

Is there anything better than warm apple pie? Apples and cinnamon piled on a flakey crust… Topped with a scoop of Vanilla almond milk ice cream? Yes there is – a dairy free apple pie! For my family though, the problem was, apple pie crust is full of butter and so is the filling. I wanted to make an alternative that my dairy-free son could also enjoy, but I didn’t want to use just another…

Dairy Free Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cinnamon Buttercream Frosting

I have been on the quest for Dairy Free Food since my son was diagnosed with a dairy allergy in 2015. Many people confuse this with being Lactose Intolerant, but he actually has, a full blown allergy to dairy.

I have no hidden agenda and I do not secretly work for Peta.   That being said.   I report and share Eco facts because, I truly believe that many people do harmful things to our planet, due to lack of environmental knowledge. I also believe that alone…

Before we left for Fort Lauderdale and the Florida Keys, I googled about things to do, especially for my children, ( Doesn’t everyone?) And I found “Butterfly World”… Well, who doesn’t love a pretty butterfly? Google Map on, and off we went!

I love to hold her hand…

I was walking into the grocery store the other day and was holding my daughters hand, her little hand fit into my palm, even at the age of 9 her little fingers are so small… and I thought to myself “It feels so good to hold her hand”, I also thought to myself “I want to remember how this feels forever”. Being the mom of 3 grown boys, I know how quickly children grow, it…
