When I was a kid, my mom used to make grilled tofu marinated in barbecue sauce and grilled eggplant for dinners all throughout the summer. If you are fortunate enough to have Labor Day free, you shouldn’t spend that leisure time making a complicated dinner. Make this fast, easy dinner instead. Use the time the tofu is […]
We’re at the tail end of strawberry season, and I just got a haul. My mom and I went out to Barthel Fruit Farm and picked 2 flats of strawberries. I’m not sure how many pounds, but it was enough to freeze a gallon of strawberries, make 8 jars of jam, 8 jars of preserves, […]
We have been blessed two years in a row with a very abundant garden. With all the veggies we get from it, it’s hard to use them all, even when we give some away to friends.
The strawberry posts continue! We had a lot of strawberries to work with this year, and I was happy to try a few new recipes in the process. We made strawberry sorbet and strawberry banana popsicles with the strawberries we didn’t use for canning (or just plain good eating.
This year, we continued our summer tradition by picking two flats of strawberries. We used most of the strawberries for making jam (see my past post on canning for ideas of your own but saved the rest to make popsicles and sorbet.

This year, our plans include canning strawberries, peaches, cherries, and apples, with the possibility of adding blueberries into the mix. Last summer we got a crate of peaches from Tree-Ripe and made peach jam, among […]
It’s 19 days until my wedding, and I’m still not feeling quite my best. I’ve been doing boot camp about 3 days per week, I eat very healthy and drink very little (well, not including my bachelorette party), but I still feel like I need more shoves in the right direction to get me to […]
Hello, and welcome back to Dairy-Free State after a long hiatus! My first year of graduate school is under my belt (summer projects not included) and I’m happy to be back with more recipes and more projects. My hope is never to go this long again without posting, and I’m overflowing with ideas for new […]
Dear Readers, I have been a very inattentive blogger lately. Posting a Pi Day update well after Pi Day? For shame!
This summer, we were lucky enough to pick up some delicious deliveries from Tree-Ripe. We bought peaches at the beginning of the summer (and made awesome recipes like Peach Pancakes and Sangria) and blueberries near the end of the summer. I took a ton of blueberries and froze them to use during the cold months.
