Yes, I’m still breastfeeding

While this year’s World Breast Feeding Week has come to a close, I can’t help but reflect on the last 4 years I’ve spent as a mother. Breastfeeding has been such a huge part of that. I started breastfeeding in June 2013 when our first baby was born. The bond was incredible and while it wasn’t always the easiest journey (more about that here & here), our breastfeeding relationship lasted 26 months just in time […]

Dairy Free Dino Birthday Cake!!

Pretty sure we nailed parenting for little man’s fourth birthday! He specifically requested a dinosaur chocolate cake, and boy did we deliver. Now, y’all, this kid is dairy-free, soy-free, & never eats junky food coloring because he has food allergies and acid reflux, so I spent awhile looking around for the perfect recipe. I searched Pinterest high & low, but nothing matched up. Finally, I remembered about this depression time cake recipe where they were […]

Spring Fling & Easter Things Round Up — Vegan Bunny Pancakes

Last year, after Easter, I came across an idea for bunny pancakes and mentally filed it away to try when the opportunity came around again. Although I pinned the recipe, there wasn’t much point as our kid’s are both allergic to dairy & soy. So, I adapted the yummy activity to be vegan and here are the results!  To make the pancake batter: 1 cup White Flour 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder 1/4 teaspoon Salt 2 […]

Fig Bars for the Whole{some} Family — Nature’s Bakery Review+GIVEAWAY

*I received these products free for review, but all opinions expressed are my own.* These Fig Bars are amazing.  Seriously.  To put it in perspective, Nature’s Bakery kindly sent over eight boxes and they’re almost gone. We all loved them. From the toddler to my grandma, there was a flavor for everyone. While it’s hard to decide which of the eight flavors was the resounding favorite, blueberry & raspberry were extremely popular and may have caused some […]

Bye, Dairy, Bye

Both my kids have Milk Protein Intolerance (MPI), so while I ate as much cheese, ice cream, and whole milk as I could get my hands on prior to their births, I had to give up dairy if I wanted to keep breastfeeding; which, of course, I did. With my son, I went back to dairy as quickly as possible, but with my daughter I’ve been off dairy for 6 months now and I’ve made […]
