Lactose-free Lemonies

Lactose-free Lemonies I have a friend who’s called me Lemonie for years and I happen to LOVE lemon – so on this first day of spring, I thought I should bake a batch of these up. Lemon makes the perfect choice on hot sunny days. It’s a great bake sale treat. And, these are the perfect alternate to chocolate desserts for those strange people who don’t like chocolate sweets. (Or for people who like to have a little sweet and a little tart one after another. Like lemon pie, squared Much easier to make than a lemon pie, these squares…

DIY Pumpkin Spice (is easier than you think)

mommydo.com - DIY Pumpkin Spice

Maybe you’ve run out of Pumpkin Spice. Or maybe you live in Canada and Starbucks has run out of pumpkin scones and it’s only halfway through October. Perhaps, you know, you live in Canada and can’t buy it here, like at all. Or it could be that you have a whole drawer full of spices and it just makes sense to make your own. What ever the reason, what are you waiting for? Pumpkin spice in T-minus 3 minutes The is probably the easiest recipe you’ll ever find on a blog. It takes about three mintues – maybe less. You…

Lactose-Free Cinnamon Coffee Cake (with extra crumble)

mommydo.com Lactose-Free Cinnamon Coffee Cake

I love cake. And since I am quite lactose intolerant, if I don’t make it, I rarely get to eat it. That’s why I’m so excited about this Lactose-Free Cinnamon Coffee Cake with extra crumble. Of course, now that Natrel makes lactose-free butter here in Canada, it’s like it’s a whole new world. I have had some great success with vegan butter, but it’s not the real deal. While this cake does not have sour cream or butter milk, it’s still a lovely cake. I would definitely consider it lean closer to a pound cake consistency rather than fluffy birthday cake…

DIY Easter Surprise Eggs are easier than you think

This DIY Easter Surprise Eggs recipe is a new Easter favourite. In fact, I might be make them 123,045 times before this easter. My little one LOVES surprise eggs. Like is seriously-obsessed-to-the-point-that-it-drives-me-crazy obsessed. But I can’t bear to have any more little plastic toys filling up our home, and she really shouldn’t be chowing down on full size big-kid eggs. So I decided to try and make some at home. melanie

Shortbread cookies that melt in your mouth

Mommydo.com // Melt-in-your-Mouth Shortbread (lactose-free)

Christmas Came Early So Natrel just released Lactose-Free Butter. LACTOSE-FREE BUTTER! I stuffed my daughter in the car (buckled her up tight) and proceeded to buy 5 packages. I also brought the ingredients for these shortbread cookies and a baguette. First I ate few hunks of baguette spread with glorious butter. Then I whipped up these whipped shortbread cookies. Whipped Shortbread Cookies Melt in your Mouth They are one of the first Christmas Cookies I made on my own as a little girl. And they’re still my favourite today. The recipe hails from The Harrowsmith Cookbook, and credit is given…

Best Sandwich Bread Ever – Just Add Turkey

mommydo.com | The Best Sandwich Bread Ever, Seriously

Most people look forward to the big show at Thanksgiving. The main feast. But I think the sandwiches the day after are the best. This recipe is the Best Sandwich Bread Ever. It’s not the prettiest loaf, but it’s my favourite ever, just the same. The Best Sandwich Bread Ever is Not Pretty but… It is a bread machine recipe, which is what makes the loaves a little funny looking but I find, if you want to serve it with the big feast, putting the sliced bread on the table helps take eyes off the tall, slightly misshapen loaf. The key…

Craving Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

That’s what happened to me last week. Just wanted to eat simple homemade cookies. So, I grabbed my go-to recipe that I’ve been making since I first learned how to make cookies (which isn’t hard ’cause I use the one on the back of the Chippits bag). Then I baked them. Then we ate them. Now I’m craving more classic chocolate chip cookies. Sigh. Ingredients: 1 cup – Softened butter 1 cup – Brown Sugar 1/2 cup – White granulated sugar 2 – Eggs 1.5 teaspoons – vanilla 2 cups – All Purpose Flour 1 teaspoon – Baking Soda 1/2…

The 12 Treats of Christmas: #11 Classic Sugar Cookies

I’ve got my binder open, and this recipe comes from a photocopy of a page from Chatelaine Magazine circa 1998. 15 years later, this is still my go-to sugar cookie recipe. As I said yesterday, I don’t have a photo yet, as we’re going to bake these over the weekend. But I find I like it when the dough chills for a good long while (overnight if possible), so I thought I’d post now so you too can get the batter together tomorrow and have a good old-fashioned cookie bake with the kids this weekend now that school is out….
