Y'all, its no surprise at this point that I love a good cupcake. And while I'm very open that they are never made from scratch (striving for basic here 🙋🏻), I always like finding a way to spruce up those bland vanilla cupcakes with unique new flavors!Some cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla make up the cake part of this cupcake. Topped with my super simple buttercream that is infused with maple will have you wanting more!They are the perfect sweet treat for Valentine's Day!  function print Clean Eating Desserts, Köstliche Desserts, Healthy Dessert Recipes, Delicious Desserts, Strawberry Desserts, Healthy Sweets, Cupcake Recipes, Healthy Foods, Yummy Recipes

Y'all, traveling can be a bit much right? I personally love traveling but that doesn't mean it is any less anxiety-causing for me.Cause y'all know what happens. All the news stories leading up to your trip start with "PLANE CRASHES" or "SECURITY SCARE DELAYS FLIGHTS".  Not the best things to see before you embark on a trip of your own. Add in allergies and you just increase your stress level to a 10... am I right? I'm not going to sit here and type out a post like I'm some nomad t Modern Gadgets, Anxiety Causes, Overseas Travel, Lose Your Mind, Travel Gadgets, Once In A Lifetime, Just Relax, Travel Planner, Travel Essentials

Summer allergies don't just affect us, they also affect our fur babies. I sometimes feel our pup battles allergies almost 10x worse then we do.Poor guy sheds that winter coat and it's all the itching and all the time.Now, I'm not the type of dog owner to rush my pup to the vet every time he starts to itch. We try our best to treat at home first. It saves us money and saves Bruno the anxiety of going to the vet.There are a lot of holistic remedies that I have found work for our pup.I'm Dog Allergies Remedies, Dog Remedies, Allergy Remedies, Summer Allergies, Natural Dog Care, Natural Remedies For Congestion, Dog Skin Care, Dog Illnesses, Dog Health Tips

You can't live in the south without knowing how to whip up this classic fried side dish.While tomatoes can be eaten year-round, I feel tomatoes are most used in the summer.My tomato plants are starting to overflow with la romas, cherry's, and beefsteak.Those green beefsteaks were calling my name the other day and I just had to whip up a personal batch of fried green tomatoes.I made this dish with just one tomato so it can be easily doubled, tripled, or quadrupled if you have more then one tomato Clean Eating Side Dish Recipes, Easy Healthy Side Dishes, Vegetable Side Dishes Recipes, Vegetarian Recipes Healthy, Delicious Healthy, Snack Recipes, Gluten Free Dairy Free, Dairy Free Recipes

I've shared a recipe for a dairy free caesar dressing before but I'm always looking and trying new and different ways to make my recipes easier.And I've found an even easier way to make this Caesar dressing with even fewer ingredients for your salad dressing needs! This dressing is perfect for just putting overtop of a salad or making a traditional Caesar salad with all the goodies like parmesan and croutons (GF and Vegan of course ).

Guys, I'ms still not ok that Aldi stopping selling the Vegan/Gluten Free Potstickers (if you don't know what I'm talking about, click here) So I took it upon myself to deconstruct the potsticker and make it into a glorious pasta recipe.You could EASILY add more veggies into this meal.

I'd say 95% of my recipes, especially dessert based recipes, come from cravings.🤤I've been craving those sweet Little Debbie Oatmeal cream pies that I used to enjoy pre-gluten-free life. Something about spring makes me think of these sweet oatmeal treats.This recipe is very simple but requires a few tricks to make it perfect. Especially when it comes to the dainty oatmeal cookies! So be sure to read my recipe carefully and the notes as well!  function printDiv(e){var divToPrint=d Dairy Free Milk, Grain Free, Gf Desserts, Gluten Free Desserts, Dessert Recipes, Healthy Dessert
