My new snack addiction…

Ok.. Snacking isn’t always bad but I LOVE chips. I love the saltiness and the crunch – yes, I plead guilty. Recently we went to Costco (we love that place) and found these chips made from chickpea flour. We didn’t open them for a week or so and when we did – we nearly ate the entire bag!!!!! Gluten free, vegan, dairy free, lightly salted… Done and done. Try them. Get them. But beware… You might get addicted to them too!!

Dairy-Free Cottage Cheese

I can’t honestly remember the last time I’ve had cottage cheese since I’ve become lactose intolerant 13 years ago. I came across this Lactaid Cottage Cheese at the local market and I was so excited! This is a great substitution if you love lasagna but can’t have the mass amount of cheese it has. We can use this for a ricotta cheese substitution or even a creek cheese substitution in baking recipes. What a great find!
