Cranberry Sherbet Freezes (Dairy-Free)

Cranberry Sherbet Freezes recipe (via thepigandquill.com) #dairyfree #homemadesherbet #holidaydessert #drinks

Sweet-tart homemade cranberry sherbet topped with effervescent DASANI® Sparkling Lime for a seasonal take on a classic soda fountain sherbet freeze. This post has been sponsored by The Coca Cola Company. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I grew up down the street from an old-fashioned soda fountain. I spent countless afternoons there in middle school and high school, tucked away in the back booth with the same squad of girlfriends, giggling about boys and admiring each other’s iridescent manicures. For nearly every Friday of my freshman and sophomore year, I ordered the same thing: Cherry Amaretto, in a … Read More

Oat-Free Coconut Almond Granola Recipe | Grain-Free + Vegan (via thepigandquill.com) #breakfast #mealprep

Incredibly simple, this Oat-Free Coconut Almond Granola is also oil-free and refined sugar-free, and it’s delicious over yogurt, as a salad topping, atop your favorite frosted cake, or just for snacking.

Instant Pot Miso Red Bean Stew | vegetarian + gluten-free

Instant Pot Miso Red Bean Stew recipe | vegetarian + gluten-free (via thepigandquill.com) #dinner #mealplanning

We’re hot in the midst of a pantry purge. I think I mentioned when I was raving about these Chocolate Banana Muffins. It’s been more than a month since we’ve bought any packaged or pantry staples (aside from those required for client work), and so far we’ve seen very little sacrifice in the quality of our meals. I’d even go so far as to say we’ve markedly improved the way we eat. (This stew is a fine example, but I’ll get there.) Here’s the gist. Each weekend, we hit up the grocery store or, if possible, the local farmstand and … Read More

Rose Milk Popsicles

White Chocolate Dipped Rose Milk Popsicles recipe (via thepigandquill.com) #summer #dessert #pistachios

Hello from the land of Still Avoiding the Ice Cream Truck. Is summer over yet? JK. Sorta. Lana is down to her last two weeks of preschool before a monthlong break, so in a sense, summer in our house is just about to get started. I’ve been not-so-subtly hinting to Chris that we should use this time to get outta dodge — preferably somewhere with both an on-site spa and swimming pool — while simultaneously reminding myself that we live smack in the midst of a vacation destination and the simpler (ahem, more affordable) thing to do would be to stay … Read More

Chocolate Chip Cookie Crisps / Vegan + Gluten-Free

Chocolate Chip Cookie Crisps (via thepigandquill.com) #vegan #glutenfree #baking #dessert

Let me just say: I let my kid watch an irresponsible amount of Boss Baby so I could get this post pushed out to you guys today. Bad parenting in the name of really, really excellent cookies. These cookies came about (like most good things) mostly unintentionally. A late-night craving for our favorite (Accidentally) Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies, a pantry short on AP flour and brown sugar. We’ll make do, I figured. Some cookies are better than no cookies. And while I still maintain that to be true, the resulting cookies were…not ideal. Thick and doughy, and with all white … Read More
