Dairy-Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies



Last week, I volunteered to make cookies for a work potluck – one of my co-workers is dairy free and I wanted to make something everyone could enjoy.  So, my butter-loving self went searching for a great dairy free cookie recipe and found these!

Because who doesn’t love a great oatmeal raisin cookie?

Now the key to a really good oatmeal raisin cookie is the texture: they HAVE to be soft and chewy!

Spiced Golden Milk (Turmeric Milk) #EatTheWorld


It’s the 10th of the month which means it’s time for the Eat the World Recipe challenge hosted by Evelyne at CultEatz.  This month, we’re taking a culinary journey to India!


I thought about making another version of Chicken Tikka Masala, but that seemed like that wasn’t entirely in the spirit of the challenge.  So decided truly challenge myself and try something that crossed my screen months ago but seemed way too far outside my comfort zone: turmeric milk or golden milk!

Turmeric is believed to have many health benefits from reducing inflammation to helping achieve deeper sleep to possible antibiotic properties!

Traditionally, turmeric milk is made will whole milk and up to a teaspoon of turmeric. 

In this version, I used cashew milk, a blend of warm spices, and a dash of honey to make a warm, cozy drink I can see myself cozying up to all winter long!

Mint Chocolate Chip Brownies


I’m flying in at the last minute with this month’s Food n’ Flix recipe!  This month really got away from me!

This month’s movie was The Princess and the Frog, hosted by Heather at All Roads Lead to the Kitchen.


The movie is set in New Orleans – so one naturally thinks Cajun food, but here I am with brownies.

Mexican Hot Chocolate Sugar Skull Cookies #Choctoberfest


*Disclosure: I received product to sample from ­­­­­Sprinkle Pop.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.


It’s the final day of #choctoberfest and I decided to continue the Dia de los Muetros celebration I started a couple weeks ago when I made Pan de Muertos (Bread of the Dead).

I’ve made Sugar Skull Cookies for the past couple years, taking the time to pipe all of the details by hand with royal icing.  The cookies are gorgeous, but incredibly time consuming.  This year, with a full load of graduate school classes in addition to my job as a school librarian, plus being room mom for both of my kids’ classes, I just didn’t know when I was going to have the time to make my skulls.  And my boys were already asking if I was going to make Halloween cookies for their friends this year.



Then I got my sprinkles of Sprinkle Pop and I knew that their stunningly beautiful Dia de los Muertos mix was going to be the answer to my prayers!

Molasses Cookies with White Chocolate Espresso Frosting #choctoberfest


*Disclosure: I received product to sample from ­­­­ #Choctoberfest sponsor Forte Chocolates.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.


Buckle up for another day of chocolaty goodness as we embark on another day of #Choctoberfest!  Today I’m venturing into new waters with a #choctoberfest first for me: I’m using white chocolate!

This whole recipe came about when I received my package form Forte Chocolates.  My package contained Milk Chocolate with Sea Salt (which I ate because it’s delicious), Dark Chocolate (which I used in my Chocolate Babka) and White Chocolate Espresso with actual espresso blended into the white chocolate!  Amazing!

Steak Stir Fry Noodle Bowls with Homemade Udon Noodles #FantasticalFoodFight



This month’s Fantastical Food Fight nearly snuck up on me!  I almost passed, but once I realized the challenge was pasta, I knew I had to participate.

And I wasn’t going to make boxed noodles either, nope, I decided to make homemade Udon noodles!
