Dairy-Free Doughnuts… A Mild Disaster

Although I have cooked beignets before (usually from a mix), Saturday, May 19th, 2018, was my first time making doughnuts from scratch. Thanks to my temporary dairy intolerance, I can no longer enjoy commercial-made baked goods unless they are specifically labeled as dairy-free or come from somewhere that never uses dairy. I am hoping to remove thisContinue reading “Dairy-Free Doughnuts… A Mild Disaster”

Double Chocolate-Chip Cookies: Dairy-Free & Delicious

They were chewy, sweet, and chocolaty. They had vegan butter and coconut oil as well as dairy-free chocolate chips. And they were not only delicious, but they were also irresistible.

Healthy and “Happy” Chocolate Chip Cookies

If only my cookies ended up as good as the ones above, taken from Pixabay, a public-domain image website. Obviously, I don’t know how these taste.

It Starts Bitter…Then it’s Sweet…Healthy Pudding

It was not until recently that I cleaned up my diet. I now eat more homemade meals and less commercially-made food. Guess what? I lost a lot of weight because of that. A while ago, I experimented with healthier desserts. One was chocolate pudding that had almond milk instead of regular milk. I don’t recallContinue reading “It Starts Bitter…Then it’s Sweet…Healthy Pudding”

Why I Am Cooking in Advance Now?

Once upon a time, I learned how to cook and would prepare many meals. That was… until I got my driver’s license and was ready to drive alone. I would eat out more, whether it was takeout, delivery, or dine-in. Then in March, the world went on lockdown. I could no longer go out toContinue reading “Why I Am Cooking in Advance Now?”
