SCRUPMTIOUS SIDES! Macaroni and Cheese

WHAT?! MACARONI AND CHEESE?! YES! Of course! It wouldn’t be the holidays without this luscious, creamy, pasta-y, cheesy goodness we all know and love. In fact, a bad macaroni and cheese has been known to ruin an otherwise delicious family dinner (same thing with mashed potatoes, but that’s for another post). Thankfully, this macaroni and…

WHAT’S FOR BREAKFAST? Pumpkin Pancakes/ Waffles

I know I’m really pushing the pumpkin here, but I don’t think you guys understand that I LIVE for this time of year. I love to dress in layers, eat soup, go holiday shopping, decorate, and put pumpkin in everything. I really do. And since I can really only enjoy one of those things at…

APPS ALL AROUND! Queso Blanco

This is literally the easiest vegan queso blanco recipe ever. So easy, in fact, I’m not even going to add a story to it. Just know that you can thank my queso cravings for this one. P.S. This is perfect for your Game Day bash, ESPECIALLY if you have any vegan attendees. I got you…

SCRUPMTIOUS SIDES! Pumpkin Cornbread

Now, I know I said I would keep Scrumptious Sides to 5 ingredients or less, but I had to make an exception for this. It’s practically impossible to come up with a delicious, gluten-free, allergen-friendly cornbread recipe with just 5 ingredients. Too many substitutions. It might be possible, but I have yet to come up…

COOKIE CORNER! Double Chocolate Crinkles

Alright, my first cookie recipe! I love making these cookies because everyone loves chocolate and everyone loves sugar, so the fact that they’re basically a chocolate ball rolled in powdered sugar makes them practically irresistible. One quick note about these cookies is that they are an oil-based cookie, so they are automatically dairy free. In…

Spinach Dip (Always A Crowd Pleaser)

You know how each family has their own little food traditions that everyone follows, NO MATTER WHAT? Yeah? Well, ours is spinach dip. And it’s not just any type of spinach dip. You can’t buy this spinach dip in the store. No. You have to make it. Well, not you specifically. Just any family member…

Egg Drop Soup (A Fond Memory)

Fall is almost here and I’m SOUP-er excited for soup season. Nothing feels better than sitting outside with a warm bowl of soup, watching the leaves turn. So, in order to celebrate, I’m going to try to share some of my favorite soup recipes that can be enjoyed throughout the following months. Starting with this…

Ranch Dressing

Okay, I am actually very happy with this recipe. When I first learned I had developed a dairy allergy (like, no animal milk what-so-ever… Goodbye goat cheese! 😥 ), I was really heartbroken because it was the one allergy I felt like I was impervious to. I really don’t know why, I just did. Anyways,…

My Favorite Waffle Recipe (GF, DF, & NF)

When I found out I had developed wheat, oat, and rice allergies, I was super devastated. I loved all the breakfast foods from pancakes, to waffles, to my favorite, french toast. Learning that I had to give all of that up brought my spirit to a dark place. It’s been a while now since I’ve…

Note to Self…

These crackers are the bomb. New favorite snack: Crackers and Apple butter! ❤

Paleo Pasta Recipe!

I did it! I finally did it! I made a paleo pasta recipe that works! And I made lasagne! And I didn’t cry!!! So, in honor of my culinary accomplishment, I will share this recipe with the internet, so no one will ever have to go through what I went through in looking for a…

The Paleo Diet: The Misunderstood Diet

“The Paleo diet is stupid.” “I could never give up bread or pasta.” “Why would you want to eat like a caveman?” “It’s not even historically accurate because people’s diets varied by region.” “The foods we have today is nothing like the foods they had back then. This diet is LITERALLY impossible!” “Ugh, not the…
