Looking Ahead; Happy New Year! Welcome 2016.

Happy 2016 (on Friday)!

Happy New Year 2016 replace 2015 concept on the sea beach

Over the past couple of months I gave much thought to this blog in 2016.  I wanted to add a couple of features and I wanted to do something unique.  I’ve also contemplated the goals of why I am working this blog.

When I first had to go dairy free in 2014, my online search turned up very little of “dairy free” food/recipes.  It seemed that the majority of websites were all gluten-free with dairy free thrown in.  I did find http://www.godairyfree.org and it was immensely helpful.  I also searched Paleo & Vegan recipes knowing that they would basically be safe for someone with a dairy allergy.  After a few months, I realized that there just needed to be more specific resources for those with dairy allergies & Non-Dairy Queen of Sweets was born.  The main goal for my blog is just that ~ a specific resource for those with dairy allergies.

 

Looking forward to 2016:

There will be at least one giveaway; possibly more.

The features for 2016 are as follows:

Heirloom ~ recipes from my family – Mother, Grandmother & Great-Grandmother & other family members.  I came by my love of cooking naturally; the family tree is filled with excellent cooks, including one of my brothers and most of my mom’s 7 brothers in addition to my mother & grandmother.  For years I tried to convince my mom to open a restaurant.  Once a month I will feature an heirloom recipe from the family collection.

 

Non-Dairy Food Comparison ~ with this feature I will be sharing some of the products I use & that are my favorites.  I’ll share what I like and how I use the item.  There are some yummy products out there!

 

Nutrition ~ Note:  I’m not a certified nutritionist; please make sure you discuss with your healthcare provider and/or nutritionist; I’m only sharing what I’ve learned for myself, but I wanted to put out there some of the nutrients we need to replace in our diet when dairy is removed.

 

National Day of ~ this is what I am most excited about.  There is a website dedicated to the “National Day of” days.  I will be picking a National Day of each month & featuring a recipe.  There are enough National Days of that I could (and maybe will) feature a National Day recipe each month for the next few years.

 

I am looking forward to the new changes for 2016.  In the meantime, check out where else you can find me; please like/follow:
