i was a bit lazy this year in the cooking and baking department. i did however, find many delicious recipes on other blogs that i will be making again. i am very excited about one in particular, i can’t believe i actually found a recipe for dairy free sweetened condensed milk! wow! i also had a few successes and a few failures with my own recipes, i will not be posting anything about lussekatter or cocosbullar. i’ll try again next year. however, this pepparkakor recipe brought me back to childhood with the first bite. they aren’t crispy like mormor’s but just as tasty. here are a few of the recipes that i made this holiday season from fellow bloggers that we really loved.

the mommy bowl –cherry almond coconut kisses *alert* this is where the dairy free sweetened condensed milk recipe is!!! the cookies are good too! –peppermint crisps took me several times to get the hard candy right but well worth it. used enjoy life chocolate chips only.

passionate homemaking –sweet potato & apple casserole this was a surprise hit at christmas dinner. i received several compliments on this dish. i used white sweet potatoes.

manifest vegan –autumn spiced popcorn yum!


1 cup gf flour, your favorite mix
1/2 cup tapioca starch
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp xantham/guar gum
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp cardamom
zest of 1 orange
1/4 cup sugar of choice
1/4 cup agave
2 tbs molasses
1/2 cup palm shortening
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

sift dry ingredients in a small bowl and set aside. beat sugar, agave and shortening until fluffy then add egg and vanilla. add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture, blend well. refrigerate for several hours.
roll dough on floured surface and cut with cookie cutters.
bake 8-10 mins. let cool on cookie sheet for a few minutes.
