This is the first post I'm sharing that is not completely Vegan (gasp!) as it contains eggs.
I know, I know,,,,,"how could you?".  Well, the answer is simple....I don't want my food allergic child to die.
To some, this may not make any sense, as its hard enough for me to wrap my head around.  For the past 9 years, we have been telling our X-man NOT to eat ANYTHING that contains eggs as it has sent him into anaphylaxis before. But after his last Dr. appointment and another round of skin testing, we decided to challenge egg since his level dropped just so slightly.

Almost too pretty to eat, but you'll want to anyways! Snowy white Eggnog flavored cake with layers of cranberry glaze for the perfect Holiday blend cake. V & free of dairy, eggs, soy & nuts Each Christmas day, we begin by having cake for breakfast. It's become our family tradition and way of celebrating the "reason for the season" before the gift opening begins.

For years, the kids would help make the cake and decorate it but as they are getting older their calendars are now full of activities and sports and I've started making the cake on my own.  I'm pretty sure I could still make it happen and have them help, but I kinda like the quiet in the kitchen and being able to have a cake without funfetti sprinkles or multi-colored globs of icing everywhere.

Until recently, I've been a little apprehensive of making Restaurant Style Naan bread.  I mean, how can one even come to close to duplicating this soft and puffy semi-flat bread typically made in a tandoor (or clay) oven? Last I checked, my kitchen (and most kitchens) only come with a convection if you're lucky. However, after investing in a bunch of Indian spices and working on some Dal recipes, I figured Naan was the next thing I needed to try my hand at, and I'm so glad I did! Now, I have this AMAZING restaurant style naan bread that my whole family can eat since its dairy-free. 

Fluffy Baked Bisquits

Over the years we have greatly decreased the amount of bread we eat in the house. As a once "go-to" for all things breakfast, lunch and dinner, it's now only used occasionally and the quality of bread has gone from typical bagged breads to sprouted or homemade ones.

So when I made this the other day, my oldest let me know the he "loved when I made bread".  Sweet right? I guess my kids have learned to enjoy the little things, like homemade bread.
