It’s strawberry rhubarb season! If you know me in real life, you know I’m a huge fan of strawberry season. I’m one of those serious types at the u-pick berry farms – head down, getting as much as I can before I get too itchy from the hay or too hot from the sun beating […]
I’ve been going through a lot since the beginning of 2016. I’ve had nonstop chronic health problems. I’ve left a career path I thought I’d be in forever to start a new one. Most importantly, in all of the fray, I haven’t taken a lot of time to do things that I love, like making […]
Every year, no matter what else is going on, we take time out of our schedule to host an ugly sweater party. It’s totally cheesy and fun, and it’s my excuse to make a ton of food, most of which isn’t healthy in any way, shape, or form. This year, we gave the winner an […]
Hello, dear readers of Dairy-Free State! After quite a bit of radio (blog?) silence, I am back with more content, more reviews, more recipes, more everything! First up, a review of Blooming Lotus, a relatively new Milwaukee bakery. I hope you missed me because I sure missed regularly posting.
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.

The title of the blog is a mouthful, and so is the smoothie! I almost considered calling this blog: “The Dairy-Free State Root Canal Recipes.” I just had a root canal this morning, and am planning on not chewing for the next four days. I decided to scour my pantry and make a smoothie that fed […]
Sometimes, small tweaks can revive an old recipe. In this case, I turned a recipe I made last summer into a slightly different recipe featuring a couple different baking ingredients. With this new year, I give you a facelift of a previous recipe: vegan cranberry pecan chocolate chip muffins.
At holidays when I was growing up, my mom would make a recipe called Cherries in the Snow. The recipe involved angel food cake, cream cheese, whipped cream – basically, a lot of things that I can’t eat. I decided to take her recipe and revise it, using some of the canned strawberry pie filling […]
I can’t even think about what my childhood would have been like without peanut butter bars. They were at every bake sale, every sleepover, every cookout. For some reason, I equate peanut butter bars with childhood. In fact, the last time I had a peanut butter bar was definitely sometime during my childhood. I haven’t […]
