Dairy-Free Buckeyes

Dairy-Free Buckeyes2

I shared this recipe last year but it contained dairy-filled chocolateso I thought I would share how I went about making a dairy-free version this year. This was an easy tweak to make, especially since I had just received a complimentary sample of Boom Choco Boom Bars by Enjoy Life Foods.  You could also use […]

Handcrafted Dairy/Casein-Free Chewy Caramels

Dairy-Free Caramel

I am super excited about this recipe for gluten-free, dairy/casein-free caramels because I have tried it 3 times using different substitute ingredients and each one produced a buttery, chewy caramel candy…perfect for dipping apples, making homemade candy treats, you name it. First, let me tell you how I landed on it.  I began my quest […]

Dye-Free Lego Cupcakes and a Yummy Earth Lollipop Giveaway

Yummy Earth Lego Candy

I have a little secret to share with you.  I am a bonafide silicone ice cube tray-aholic! I have so many of these brilliant little gadgets that I am running out of places to store them.  I should probably look into renting a storage unit for them…although, I think my husband would shove me in […]

Not sure how popular the “Easter Bunny” will be in our house come Sunday, but I am keeping my fingers crossed!  Instead of loading their baskets with neon colored commercial candies, I am making a […]

Surf Sweets Organic and Natural Candy Review

A while back, I received a complimentary sampling of Surf Sweets Organic and Natural Gummy Candy and Jelly Beans to review on my blog. I have to admit, I received these back in December and I am embarrassed that I am just NOW reviewing them at the end of January! I am a big “out […]

Buckeye Candy

Buckeye Nut in Grass

I may live in New Mexico, but I hail from the great state of Ohio and in my heart I will always be a Buckeye.  What is a Buckeye you ask?  Other than the mascot for my Alma Mater, it also happens to be a poisonous nut from the state tree, the Buckeye Tree. So […]

Gluten Free Halloween Treats for Kids

Yummy Earth1

I found some gummy bears by Yummy Earth at Whole Foods a couple of weeks ago.  I thought they would be a good treat to put in the boy’s lunch boxes.  Inside the big bag, there are 30 little portion sized packages.  I was surprised at how much I liked them, and I am a […]
