Chicken salad is such a simple and easy lunch to have on hand. It goes perfectly on top of cucumber slices or in between a fluffy, flaky croissant.

Homemade Mayonnaise

I've never really been a huge fan of mayonnaise. Like, I could live without it. Those grocery store jars of mayo are never really appealing to me so it isn't a condiment that I always have on hand, but when I do need it, I NEED it! While store-bought mayo is convenient, it is also… Continue reading Homemade Mayonnaise

Veggie Pasta Primavera (Dairy-Free)

Who doesn't love pasta? Pasta is one thing I just can not (and do not really want to) give up.  I blame it all on my Italian blood.  I am a believer in moderation, so we do limit it.  I do think that pasta gets a bad rap, though. Of course, if you eat multiple… Continue reading Veggie Pasta Primavera (Dairy-Free)

Slow Cooker Whole Chicken and Vegetables

I like to buy organic when I can, but it is not always the cheapest option. When we make our weekly trip to Costco, my husband always cringes as I walk by the 'regular' chicken and go straight for the organic chicken. It is usually always double the price per pound.  After looking at all… Continue reading Slow Cooker Whole Chicken and Vegetables

Taco Seasoning

Ditch the fillers and added sodium and make this homemade taco seasoning in just a few minutes. Making your own seasonings is a great way to control what goes in them. You can adjust the ingredients to your family's liking. Want it a bit spicier? Just add some cayenne and/or red pepper. Omit the salt… Continue reading Taco Seasoning

With pictures of golden cheesy casseroles and creamy alfredo with pasta, it really makes you crave for dairy back in your life!
