Dairy Free Ranch Dressing

I'm not crazy about green salads unless they're smothered in a creamy dressing. Creamy dressing doesn't have to be unhealthy! It doesn't have to have any dairy in it either.

You can adjust the amount of herbs and garlic to suit your tastes. I have also made this using parsley and dill. You could use chives or cilantro too. If you have a garden, let it inspire you.

I use it on salad or as a sauce for other things like falafel.

Chocolate Muffins with Banana and Sweet Potato

Here's an easy recipe for chocolate muffins. They make a quick breakfast for those mornings when you're running behind schedule. My kids LOVED these. I used a combination of sweet potato and bananas. If you don't have one, use the other, or mix them like I did. I had 2 small sweet potatoes leftover, and when I mashed them, it came to 1/4 cup. When I added a mashed banana, it was about 1 cup of mash total.

For the apple sauce, I like to buy those little snack cups that you might send to school with your kids. If I bought a jar of sauce, I'd never be able to use it up before it went bad.

I used Enjoy Life chocolate chips because they are dairy free and delicious. They're the only kind I buy now. They also sell chunks.
