Dairy free Pumpkin Pie with Olive Oil

Dairy free Pumpkin Pie with Olive Oil

It must be getting old, reading my praises to autumn. I admit, I cant help myself loving this season. It’s the colours, the sounds, the smells and the good living. A staple fall produce is a pumpkin. Maybe because it is the same colour as autumn leaves, maybe because of its size that could symbolise abundance… I don’t know. I just like to use what is available and seasonal as much as I can. And I thought of this dairy free pumpkin pie recipe just like that. I had pumpkins…

Sweet potato brownies – dairy, egg, gluten, nut free version

Sweet potato brownies – dairy, egg, gluten, nut free version

I can almost not believe my baby will be one year old in just a month. The time flew by so fast and we are all so excited to give her a birthday party. Because of all the allergies she is suffering from, it is hard to come up with food even she can enjoy for her birthday, but sweet potato brownies can ce made into a cake with just a little imagination. All the limitations left me with no other choice than to investigate. And hopefully come up with a prototype…

Yesterday I wanted to bake something sweet because my girl celebrated her 10 month mini birthday (I can’t believe I just wrote this:o I used to make fun of people who talk about mini birthdays and stuff like that, but what the hell, it is a great excuse to make something sweet). I decided to invite all her grandparents over and show them what our little girl learned in the last month. She is quite a show maker. When everything was already arranged and people invited, I discovered I have very limited…

Walking through old town centre always makes me want a big nasty cake or at least a good scoop of ice cream. But, as I’m sure I mentioned, because I cannot have tasty stuff like that because of allergies. Dairy, eggs and nuts is something every respectable dish that deserves to be called a dessert, should contain. Dreaming about desserts became a pretty common pastime activity for me. Swedish Buns with blueberries became mommy’s little helpers on days when I felt like giving up. So when you are limited like I am you…

Dairy Free Baking – Pie

Dairy Free Baking – Pie

I decided to write down this recipe for a dairy free pie that also contains no eggs and nuts, because there are days when you feel totally OK without eating something sugary but we all know that there are also too many days when you need something to treat yourself. When having to work with allergies, deserts are something that becomes hard to get. When eating out, it is almost impossible to get anything but fruit for dessert, because every really tasty desert contains milk and/or its derivatives, but it you…

Dairy Free Icecream Icycles

The last time I badly wanted ice cream, was on New Year’s Eve. My husband and I have planned the super duper dinner for a while. Meat was specially ordered at the butcher, hopes were high. Since we’re not big on desserts, we wanted to go all out on the meat, but have some humble ice cream for dessert. But after coming home from the doctor’s, with the baby being diagnosed with “Allergic to f*ing everything” the plans needed to be changed. Because we all know every (good) ice cream…
