Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Lara Bars

  Welp, here’s another copycat recipe!

Mint Chocolate Chip Milkshake {No Added Food Coloring}

Cream Cheese Substitute Made From Dairy Free Yogurt!!!

I know I already have a good dairy free cream cheese recipe using cashews, but after I made my easy peasy sour cream made from yogurt I really wanted to make an easier (and cheaper) cream cheese the same way.

Smashed Sweet Potatoes

If you haven’t figured it out already, we love sweet potatoes!
