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…

Valentine Rice Krispie Treats

easy recipe video williams syndrome

Valentine Rice Krispie Treats I was lucky enough to win a Rice Krispies prize pack in the #treatsfortoys twitter party in December. I’m a big fan of the program where Rice Krispies donates money for toys for every toy shaped Rice Krispie Treat posted with #treatsfortoys. This year, the campaign raised $40,000. I thought I’d say Thank You for the amazing prize (which included a whole bunch of Rice Krispies AND a Visa gift card) by making a video of the first thing we made with the delivery. The whole family enjoyed these and I loved making my first food video.  …

5 Faves Friday: Kitchen Gadget Edition

We’re heading into holiday season! Which means a LOT of time in the kitchen. I truly love all the baking and cooking, but it’s so much more enjoyable with the right tools. Four of five of these are my go-to fav’s at home  – so much so that a few are starting to show some wear. If you’re looking for the right gadgets to get set for the holidays, these might be just what the head chef ordered. If you make meat, go into your gadget drawer. 1.Throw out your meat thermometer. Get one of these. It’s the OXO Good…

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…
