I started this blog to share dairy-free & egg-free recipes and connect with others through life’s adventures. I developed an egg allergy in high school & lactose intolerance in college. I still remember how hard those first few months can be. Whether you’re changing your diet due to intolerances, allergies, or health-related reasons, the more support you have – the better. Think of me as your personal cheerleader! I want you to feel empowered, so you know that just because you eat differently than your friends or family, you are not alone.
If you have any recipe requests, please contact me! I love developing recipes for you to enjoy. Find your favorite allergy-friendly recipe by using the search bar→

Fortunately for us, there are so many awesome dairy alternatives out there from plant-based milk to allergy-friendly yogurt, vegan cheese, and cream cheese!
When it comes to milk and yogurt you’ve got multiple choices. Soy, almond, coconut, pea protein, and more! I say, try them all. Find a few brands you like and go from there. Remember, everybody’s taste buds are different 🙂
For dairy-free and vegan cheese options, your options are constantly increasing, yay!! There are plenty of affordable brands who offer mozzarella, cheddar, Monterey jack, even parmesan. If you’re willing to drop a few extra bucks, check out the brands who are offering dairy-free artesian cheese – pretty cool. Again, I think you should give them all a shot and test em out. Find out which products fit your needs best. Are you looking for the best melt, spreadability, taste, or texture? Do you need slices or shreds?
Top 3 Dairy-Free Tips
1. Get some nutritional yeast!! This is also known as nooch. Honestly, when I first heard about this savory yeast flake I had no intention of ever using it. Hah, oh how times have changed! It’s now by far my favorite seasoning. It can be described as nutty, cheesy, maybe even creamy – so a perfect cheese substitute. I love using it as a topping for pasta, pizza, salads, lunch bowls, and more! I even sprinkle it over popcorn.
2. Are you missing that sour cream? Instead, try serving yourself a dollop of plain dairy-free yogurt. Sounds a little weird, right? Just give it a try. I promise it’s great! Especially on tacos.
3. Use coconut oil in place of butter. I love love love baking with coconut oil instead of butter. Yes, dairy-free butter exist and I do use them – but coconut oil keeps your cookies soft and fluffy.
Looking for egg alternatives? When baking, find your favorite egg replacer from the store or make your own flax egg. You can also use bananas, baking soda, tofu, and applesauce!
Are you missing your scrambled eggs? Try tofu scramble! It’s unbelievable. I have a simple tofu scramble recipe and a loaded mushroom veggie tofu scramble recipe. I’ve made a quiche only once but it was fantastic and I’m working on creating the perfect recipe to share with y’all!
