Go Dairy Free: The Guide and Cookbook for Milk Allergies, Lactose Intolerance, and Casein-Free Living


  1. Nikki VDecember 4, 2012 at 11:04 am

    My favorite holiday tradition (and therefore holiday food, I suppose) would be homemade Christmas cookies. :-)

    • Alisa FlemingDecember 4, 2012 at 11:11 amAuthor

      You and me both Nikki :)

  2. Julia WreyfordDecember 4, 2012 at 11:06 am

    I just discovered I have some serious allergies to dairy (milk, cheese, yogurt etc.) and so I’m now exploring my options for substitutes. I know NOTHING about being Vegan, Gluten-Free or sugar free, but it has now become a very real part of my every day living.

    My favorite holiday dish is corn casserole.

    I am so excited about this giveaway! Although I usually never win these things I think entering this one will be so worth it for my newfound diet!!!

    • Alisa FlemingDecember 4, 2012 at 11:11 amAuthor

      Corn casserole? Now that is a new one to me! Good luck Julia, it gets easier!

    • Bethany S.December 4, 2012 at 9:09 pm

      I know how to make corn (pudding) casserole dairy-free!

  3. Kelly FoulgerDecember 4, 2012 at 11:07 am

    Favorite holiday food has to be stuffing!!!! Everything at our Thanksgiving get together was dairy free :)

  4. sarah simpsonDecember 4, 2012 at 11:11 am

    I love my pudding mix cookies. It’s great because you can mix up the flavors for holidays.

    • Alisa FlemingDecember 4, 2012 at 11:13 amAuthor

      Sarah, do you just use Jell-O pudding mix, another brand, or make your own? I’ve been wanting to do a little pudding recipe experimentation.

  5. Fawn CollinsDecember 4, 2012 at 11:11 am

    My favorite holiday dish is lentil walnut loaf.

  6. Laura VazquezDecember 4, 2012 at 11:12 am

  8. Bobbie Ann SpanglerDecember 4, 2012 at 11:15 am

    I love pumpkin pie & black olives. Boy did I love to put them on my fingers as a kid! Now mine does that. I have played around with recipes but have not been able to find one like my momma’s pie. I would love to learn how to cook with out cows milk and eggs. Both of my kids have allergies. I am now opening up childcare geared towards kids with severe allergies.

    • Alisa FlemingDecember 4, 2012 at 11:34 amAuthor

      Not together, right? :) I did the same thing! My grandfather reminded me for years about how I did that every holiday with the olives.
      That is so awesome Bobbie Ann! I think there is a big demand for that.

  9. sarah simpsonDecember 4, 2012 at 11:15 am

    I shared the link on my Facebook. Would love to win my daughter has a milk allergy so these would be great for that

  10. KerstinDecember 4, 2012 at 11:16 am

    My favorite is peppermint candies!!! And I love homemade rolls!!! shared on Pinterest =)

  11. CloverDecember 4, 2012 at 11:17 am

      Hopefully not all at once :)

  12. Jennifer CorbyDecember 4, 2012 at 11:18 am

    My favorite holiday dish would be homemade cookies….I love (or at least loved them prior to my milk sensitivity/allergy) chocolate chip meringue cookies!! I have found some other ingredients to use…so I will have to try them out this year!

  13. Jennifer CorbyDecember 4, 2012 at 11:20 am

    I emailed this link to quite a few family and friends!!

  14. TawnaDecember 4, 2012 at 11:22 am

    hmm….tough one. I like roasted veggies a lot!

  16. TalysaDecember 4, 2012 at 11:29 am

    7-layer cookie bars. :)

  17. ScottDecember 4, 2012 at 11:32 am

    My favorite holiday dish is the vegan pumpkin pie offered on this web site. My wife made it this year and it had so much more flavor than a “regular” pumpkin pie! Everyone loved it, and I often crave it now. :)

  18. TalysaDecember 4, 2012 at 11:36 am

    Shared on twitter and liked on facebook. :)

  19. LaurelDecember 4, 2012 at 11:36 am

    THIS is my favorite holiday recipe. I can’t stop making it. This last time I doubled the spices and used a cookie crust. I’ve even been known to make it without a crust and just eat wedges all day long. yum yum
    So MANY wonderful books to explore these days ;-)

  20. LaurelDecember 4, 2012 at 11:38 am

    I FB messaged my friends and if they win they’d better share!

  21. Meg ElizabethDecember 4, 2012 at 11:51 am

    My favorite holiday food would have to be Monkey Balls (or cinnamon rolls, depending on how you look at it.) Just need to figure out how to make these dairy free this year for my daughter!

    • Alisa FlemingDecember 4, 2012 at 11:58 amAuthor

      I’m on it with this one! I’m working on a “just dairy-free” version and a df/gf one (for my husband!).

  22. cyndi wardmanDecember 4, 2012 at 11:51 am

    I like to make my own seitan roast with chestnut, cranberry, wild rice stuffing.

  23. Melinda HarrisDecember 4, 2012 at 11:52 am

  25. Melinda HarrisDecember 4, 2012 at 11:58 am

    Shared the link. Also my favorite holiday dish is my Grandmother’s turkey and dumplings and her homemade Mac and cheese. Something I have missed since we have been allergy free. (Gluten, wheat, dairy, egg, corn and pork free)

  26. ChristyDecember 4, 2012 at 12:05 pm

    My favorite holiday dish so far this year has been an amazing vegan chocolate-pecan pie a friend brought over for Thanksgiving. She was so sweet to make sure it was allergen-free for everyone at the dinner even though she does not have any allergy issues. It was incredibly thoughtful and super tasty.

    • Alisa FlemingDecember 4, 2012 at 1:35 pmAuthor

      That is so sweet! And yum!

  28. Amie CarriereDecember 4, 2012 at 12:11 pm

    My favorite holiday dish is probably my mom’s homemade swedish meatballs. What’s nice is that they are dairy and egg free so my 2 daughters with food allergies can eat them! I would love to win these cookbooks as we are always looking for new dairy and egg free (and nut) recipes to try.

    • Alisa FlemingDecember 4, 2012 at 1:35 pmAuthor

      Is her original recipe naturally dairy- and egg-free? How cool!

  29. ChelseaDecember 4, 2012 at 12:16 pm

    My favorite holiday food is my mom’s homemade pumpkin pie. She made it dairy-free for me this year and it was perfect!

  30. ChelseaDecember 4, 2012 at 12:16 pm

    Also, shared on pintrest and Facebook!

  31. Heidi HansonDecember 4, 2012 at 12:19 pm

    I am from a HUGE family with 15 kids. Finding a dish to bring to holiday dinners that pleases everyone is tough. But I am in LOVE with mashed cauliflower (to replace potatoes) and an awesome vegan gravy made from the boiled down broth of the cauliflower. Potatoes, I found, were a depressant. So to make my holiday vegan dinners even healthier and more flavorful I mixed it up!

    December 9th also happens to be my birthday… Hint hint wink wink

    • Alisa FlemingDecember 4, 2012 at 1:34 pmAuthor

      Happy early birthday Heidi!

  32. LauraDecember 4, 2012 at 12:25 pm

    My favorite during the holidays is pumpkin food items.

    I retweeted the link.


  33. Elizabeth PriestDecember 4, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    Our holidays are changing a little bit as its the first holiday after figuring out food allergies but I’ll find a me favorite dish.

  34. deb mDecember 4, 2012 at 12:29 pm

    Cookies! I love holiday cookies, baking, sharing and eating!!

  35. Beth MarshallDecember 4, 2012 at 12:44 pm

    I have been vegan for 12 years and I have been able to pretty much veganize everything that I missed from my family dinners. However, just this past Thanksgiving I finally perfected the green bean casserole. It was delicious and my picky vegan husband even liked it. I just found your blog! I will share you with the team at Vegan Cuts!

  36. natashaDecember 4, 2012 at 12:54 pm

    My family and I have come to love sweet potato casserole. We do make it Gluten free and Dairy free my kids go crazy about it. I would love to hear about some other ideas that people have.

  37. Hope HamerDecember 4, 2012 at 12:54 pm

    My mom always makes peanut butter fudge for Christmas. So yummy!

    My favorite holiday dish has always been my mom’s rice dressing. She veganized a version for me this year. I was so happy. I’ve turned into a cooking fiend as of late, and would love some new cookbooks. :)

  40. CrystalDecember 4, 2012 at 12:56 pm

    I love fruit and nut stuffing during the holidays :)

  41. Emily BillingsDecember 4, 2012 at 1:07 pm

    My favorite holiday dish is corn bread dressing. I just found out about my lactose intolerance so exploring all my diet options has been a fun challenge. Thank you for offering a give away.

  42. Rusty MDecember 4, 2012 at 1:08 pm

    My favorite was always my grandma’s creamed cauliflower but she never told us the recipe and no one has figured it out to veganize or otherwise :(

  46. Michele FrankDecember 4, 2012 at 1:55 pm

    My favorite holiday food is Scramble it is sort of like a Chex mix it has been in the family for a long time. Other than that I like to make Christmas cookies. I need to cut dairy, corn, and chocolate out of my diet because I am intolerant of them all. I would love to have some cook books that give me ideas I can work with and good food to boot.

    My favorite holiday treats are (in no particular order) green beans, pumpkin pie and dressing. Coveniently, they are all easy to veganize :) Would love one of the cook books above to learn how to make a ‘roast’!

  49. C FullerDecember 4, 2012 at 2:04 pm

    Hi, I just made the blue cornbread with quinoa recipe from the Candle Cafe cookbook and after I explained why it was blue (my family thought it looked green and was staying clear of it – LOL), they tasted it and even some of my nephews said they liked it!

    Roasted Brussel’s Sprouts for sure!! Sometimes with other veggies added in, and sometimes spicy with nuts.

    It’s not really a recipe especially for the holidays, but I do eat it during the holidays! Does that count?

    Anyway, here it is (I hope it’s okay- English isn’t my native language)


  65. Erin RockDecember 4, 2012 at 3:11 pm

    No matter how many vegan recipes I try, I always eventually return to “Granny’s Slow-Cooker Vegetarian Chili.” I found it while web-surfing and it is incredible. A big pot of it on Christmas Eve is heaven!

  66. RainnDecember 4, 2012 at 3:15 pm

    This is my (admittedly free) adaptation of my late mother’s legendary spanakopita. I’ve made it a few years running, and it’s not only delicious and popular with my family, but a LOT less work than the prototype!


  69. MicheleDecember 4, 2012 at 3:18 pm

    Growing up it was eggnog on Christmas morning while opening gifts. Now it is a almond milk or soymilk latte. :-)

  70. Kristen MDecember 4, 2012 at 3:18 pm

    My favorite holiday dish is homemade pierogies! We make them every year and they are delicious. I have been making potato pierogies and cabbage pierogies since I was very young! It is something that takes all day to make, but it is a blast being with family and eating these delicious little dumplings!!

  79. JennipherDecember 4, 2012 at 4:07 pm

    This will be my first Christmas as a vegan (though I’ve been a vegetarian forever) so I’ll need to tweak and modify many of my former favorites. I did a scrumptious appetizer at Thanksgiving that I’ll prepare again. Take a baguette and trim the ends off, then hollow out the center. Mix vegan cream cheese with veggies (I used artichoke hearts, grilled eggplants, sundried tomatoe, onion, capers and roasted pepper) and spices (basil, oregano, etc) to taste. Wrap and chill for at least four hours, then slice rounds of bread and serve. So delicious and also pretty! Yum!

  86. Kate BurgessDecember 4, 2012 at 5:14 pm

    My favourite holiday dish is a seitan roast, I’ve tried a few different ones and they’ve all been a hit (with non-vegans too). It’s a eye-catching, delicious centerpiece that tastes so good smothered in gravy.

  87. RachaelDecember 4, 2012 at 6:01 pm

    My family loves my Chicken Pumpkin Soup that I always make around the holiday time! And I make a special Pumpkin Mushroom Soup just for my husband that he looks forward to every year!

  88. AmeliaDecember 4, 2012 at 6:04 pm

    I’ve been gluten-free for nearly 6 months (just on my own, I don’t have Celiac Disease, but it sure has made me feel better overall, digestion-wise!). I’m looking to cut out dairy and possibly a couple other things (hopefully to help with some inflammation issues) and would love to check out these cookbooks!

    A couple of my favorite holiday items are 7-layered salad, and taco dip. I’m not a huge cookie fan, but I have enjoyed Peanut Blossoms in the past and am looking forward to making a GF version next weekend for family cookie baking day :-)

    • JulieDecember 5, 2012 at 6:26 am

      I cut out Gluten for about 6 months ( on my own) and noticed a little bit of improvement….BUT I have been dairy free for about 3 weeks now (on my own). I notice a HUGE difference. I am back to eating whole grain wheat and have never felt better. I think going gluten free I cut back on casein and that’s I think what was helping. So try it!!!!! I am excited it is working for me!

  89. Dawn (Vegan Fazool)December 4, 2012 at 6:15 pm

    This (Vegan) Eggnog Cake is my new favorite holiday dessert! It was SO delish!

  96. Michelle BDecember 4, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    Very hard to choose. My favorite Chanukah food is certainly potato latkes. We have been removing the dairy from our recipes for a few years since finding out our vegetarian son is seriously lactose intolerant. We made a wonderful chocolate pecan pie for Thanksgiving. The unsweetened chocolate was melted and mixed with the syrup. It was gone very fast.

    Does dark chocolate and champagne count as a food? I would love to win even one of these cookbooks.

  112. Birgit DavisDecember 4, 2012 at 7:55 pm

    Nog lattes! they remind me of my son, we used to have them together. He is now on a tour of duty in Afghanistan. Shared on FB.

  114. ZacDecember 4, 2012 at 7:57 pm

    I’m a new vegetarian this year. So far, my favorite would be a cornbread stuffing with walnuts, celery, apples and dried cherries!

  115. elizabethDecember 4, 2012 at 8:01 pm

    Pecan pie, for sure. Bonus: Nobody else who comes to my Xmas dinner likes it, so I’m tragically forced to eat the whole thing.

    My favorite foods for the holidays have changed as I have gotten healthier and become a vegan. I am trying to adapt many family recipes this year, including our family favorite, ribbon jello….that is so full of animal products that I may not be able to convert that one, but I shall try! Also, all our old family cookies have gotten a vegan bake-over by using almond milks and Earth Balance.

    Almost no single eater can even tell the difference….in fact, some like the vegan ones better. I sure do!

  118. Jackie DDecember 4, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    I like making a big batch of roasted brussel sprouts and chestnuts.
    Also, anything with sweet potatoes wins me over.

  119. Heather Noble-SykesDecember 4, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    My fave holiday dish is mac and cheese. I am still searching for the perfect vegan recipe.

  120. HeidiDecember 4, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    Cooked apples with a hint of cinnamon and a handful of tart cranberries…warm!

  122. AngelaDecember 4, 2012 at 8:18 pm

    Seitan roll with sausage and mushroom stuffing and my mom’s pan gravy (veganized, of course).

  123. TracyDecember 4, 2012 at 8:18 pm

    I love all of the vegetables but my absolute holiday favorites would be my grandmother Lillian’s crescent rolls, grandma Evelyn’s dressing and my great grandmother’s Pfefferphenous cookies.

    My favorite holiday recipes are Mexican Hot Chocolate Snickerdoodles for Santa and my grateful coworkers (thanks, Isa and Terri) and The Best Macaroni and Cheese in the World (gracias, Chloe). I can really embarrass myself with the latter, eating the whole tray by myself in a matter of days.

    I never reallized how dairy was such a staple in my meals. I am new to dairy free and am really struggling to find what to eat. I am committed to eating this way though. Just recently after having my gallbladder out I decided to try dairy free…..my pain, cramps, and nausea went away along with a host of other symptoms…..These cookbooks would be awesome!

    I love eggnog…..and was happily surprised to find it in silk!!!!

  160. Billie JeanDecember 5, 2012 at 6:25 am

    My favorite would have to be my mom’s little almond and butter sandwich cookies! There tiny butter cookies flavored with almond extract and have an amazing butter cream sandwiched in between! Since then, however, I’ve become vegan. I’m going to see if we can create a different version this year!

  176. AnaDecember 5, 2012 at 8:50 am

    My favorite holiday tradition is Pannettone! I am from Braxil and we would eat Panettone every Christmas for breakfast along with milk and coffee. We still like the bread and my 10 year old son loves it too, so it became a tradition.
    Also, being from Brazil, it is summer there during Christmas, so we always had a big tray with a nice variety of fruits on our table and I always loved that. I love fruits and always preferred to eat them instead of all the meats and heavy dishes. The simple things like fruits and nuts were always my favorite things on the holiday table!
    My grandma always had a basket with nuts in their shells and a small mallet inside on the table too, and I always had fun cracking open those walnuts, almonds and Brazil nuts. The walnuts were my very favorite to eat, but I would break any one of those for whoever wanted the treat without the cracking job! :-)

    My favorite holiday recipe is roast hazelnut stuffing twice baked; make the traditional roasted hazelnut stuffing and stuff the bird and bak as normal, the last 40 mins take stuffing out of bird and place is 13 x 9 cake pan and bake along with turkey for remaining time. This forms a nice crispy crust and incases the flavors.

    My favorite growing up was Arancini…Italian Rice Balls. They’re wondrous golden-fried balls of rice around a savory filling. They’re traditionally made with a cheese-dusted coating and meat filling so I’m trying vegan versions in hopes of reclaiming that superdelicious crunchy outside, yumful inside goodness. :)
    Many thanks!

    Being in the southern hemisphere, my favourite thing about Christmas eating is the fresh peas we always pick and eat on Christmas day. It used to be from my Grandad’s garden, and since he passed my mum has been growing them in her back yard. Just doesn’t feel like Christmas without freshly picked juicy peas to eat!

  228. DesinaDecember 6, 2012 at 10:42 am

    I used to make amazing ginger cookies with fresh ginger. I often gave them as part of personalised foodie gift baskets, too. A few years after I became vegan, I veganized it, and it’s just as good. When I moved down here to Savannah I only brought my published cookbooks, not all the recipes I’ve written out, cut out, or downloaded from websites – all my tried and trues. The computer, with my huge recipe collection died after the move, so I have to wait until my next visit home to try to find the printed copy. In the meantime, I’ve been searching for a comparable recipe online.

  229. MichaelaDecember 6, 2012 at 10:43 am

  232. Kat BohaDecember 6, 2012 at 11:46 am

    My new favorite holiday dish is a pumpkin kibbeh. I needed something vegan to take to a potluck and tried this recipe. It’s fabulous. I never liked stuffing so this is a great vegan substitute, works as a main dish cut into bars, or can be rolled into balls and fried like falafel. It ended up being a favorite among the non-vegans as well.

My holiday favorites are Baco Dip, mushroom gravy, green bean casserole, coconut chocolate pudding with whipped coconut cream topping…Preferably not all at the same time, though. Oh, and cranberry-infused vodka. Cooking and listening to my fave holiday CDs are the best part, no matter what’s on the menu.

    Shepherd’s Pie! It’s filling and the flavors are great, but I love how versatile it is. I’m always playing with the ingredients and the spices.

    Fruitcake! There, I’ve said it and I’m glad! :) Now that I’ve read Sheri A’s post, I’ll be wondering about “raw” fruitcake. Always up for new discoveries!

    My favorite holiday treat is an Italian dessert, panforte. It has nuts, candied fruit, honey, and the most amazing blend of spices – I could eat every batch I make all by myself! I am Italian, and it has been very difficult to give up most of the dishes I grew up loving. This treat is one of the few I will be able to continue enjoying each year. I am working on a spiced nut recipe of my own, so I can enjoy the taste of panforte all year long without the guilt.

    • Alisa FlemingDecember 6, 2012 at 7:10 pmAuthor

      I just looked up panforte – it sounds delicious!

  245. Renee HudginsDecember 6, 2012 at 7:08 pm

    My favorite holiday dish is candied sweet potatoes. I used to make it with butter and loads of brown sugar. Now I have made it much healthier, NO BUTTER and I use more natural sweeteners. Just goes to show how much my tastes have changed for the better but the food is still delicious. My whole Christmas menu is healthy and delicious and meat and dairy free. Thanks for your help with that!

  248. Toni KulmaDecember 6, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    I also shared your site on facebook. More folks should look into going Dairy free!

    Wow 7 books, and i’ve none of them while i’m a cookbook addict :-) would give some away to my friend who’s becoming interested in vegan food tough.. I recently discovered cinnamon rolls so will probably make those around christmas. And maybe a seitan roast.

    Wow! What a wonderful giveaway.

    My family always looks forward to me making Vegan Cranberry Haystacks and Vegan Fruit and Nut Cookies. What’s even better is they both require no baking and I never have leftovers.

    I got the recipes from taking Chef Del Stroufe’s Healthy Holiday Cookies class at the Wellness Forum in Worthington, Ohio. I’ll have to check with him to see if it would be alright to post his recipes. :0)

    Thank you for the opportunity to win such a great prize package. Now to share it on Facebook and my blog!

    • Alisa FlemingDecember 7, 2012 at 6:46 pmAuthor

      Ooh, I’m all about the no bakes! Sounds great Shirley.

    I haven’t been vegan long enough to have a favorite holiday food, but my favorite quick meal is polenta w/peppers and onions. Yum!

    My favorite vegan holiday food is vegan pot pie. Something about the tiny pie tins, the creamy, bubbling sauce and the hot, buttery crust… Ugh! Mmmmmmmm!!!!

  260. Jennifer KDecember 7, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    My favorite holiday food is the Yule Log from http://www.thegluttonousvegan.com/2008/12/hello-friends-my-girl-diana-has-let-me.html

    My favorite holiday meal is seitan roast with stuffing.

  263. KristaDecember 7, 2012 at 6:15 pm

    My favourite Christmas food is chocolate truffles. My mother’s homemade truffles were famous and she made extra money for the holidays many years by selling them – but they were made with cream. Over my almost 14 years as a vegan, I’ve tried many vegan truffle recipes but was so pleased to finally find perfection a few years ago with cashew cream. I make a big batch, flavour them with several different extracts and liqueurs, and give some away/keep some (probably keeping too many!). It wouldn’t be Christmas without truffles. :)

  264. RochelleDecember 7, 2012 at 7:10 pm

    My sister makes some amazing layered Italian cookies. She’s sending me the recipe and I’m going to try to veganize them this year. =)

  265. LindseyDecember 7, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    My favorite are Christmas Cookies and Red Velvet Cake! I am super excited to try your recipe this year. I pinned this wonderful contest! Thanks!

    My favourite holiday food is panettone! I always eat it for breakfast on Christmas day and was so pleased to find a great vegan recipe a couple of years ago. What a fantastic giveaway, I’m not familiar with all the books but they look great.

  269. Christina O'BrienDecember 8, 2012 at 5:23 am

    My favorite holiday dish is oven-baked acorn squash, so yummy and so simple too!

  270. AnnieDecember 8, 2012 at 1:50 pm

    Ooooh – I’m just in time to enter! What a fantastic set of cookbooks.

    Our family tradition is to have stuffed artichokes – which I veganized so I could continue to enjoy them after going vegan.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    the breads…but that’s always my weakness. although Somer’s macadamia brie en croute at vedgedout. com is awesome.

  275. Erica CDecember 8, 2012 at 2:05 pm

    Fave holiday foods- all of them??? LOL I love big holiday meals. Sweet potato casserole, mac and cheese, and green bean casserole.

    My favorite holiday dish pre-vegan was my grandmother’s recipe for noodle kugel with golden raisins. I’ve tried recreating it since going vegan, and I haven’t gotten it right just yet – but I’m still trying!

  278. catDecember 8, 2012 at 2:10 pm

    I’m new to vegan cooking. – I have been getting recipes on FB and trying them.

    I’ve tried a squash, beans, corn and tomato south west dish that I like.

    But the one that I go back to that is really easy is Avocado, red onions, cilantro, fresh tomatoes with lemon juice, salt an pepper.

    I would love to get these books to learn how to expand my horizons.

  279. martha robertsDecember 8, 2012 at 2:10 pm

    My newest fav- butternut mac from the ppk!
    Amazing. Try it!

  280. ErikaDecember 8, 2012 at 2:42 pm

    This will be my first vegan Christmas (I’m 6 months in) and I’m not sure what will be on the menu. We usually do a holiday morning breakfast french toast bake with cinnamon apples and cranberries. I’d love to put these cookbooks to good use!

  281. JulieDecember 8, 2012 at 3:08 pm

    Hmmm…my favorite holiday dish would have to be the cookies! My aunt makes some awesome espresso cookies dipped in chocolate…totally scrumptious!

  282. KimDecember 8, 2012 at 3:10 pm

    Pretty boring but I am going with mashed potatoes!

  283. MaireadDecember 8, 2012 at 3:36 pm

    I used to LOVE plum pudding with custard growing up in Ireland. But now I live in the U.S. and missing it, I made a vegan plum pudding once but no one else cared for it. It being a type of super-moist fruit cake, I guess it’s an acquired taste. And soy custard is easy to get in Europe, but I’ve not found it state-side. There’s nothing I’d love more this Christmas than to be able to tuck into a slice of warm plum pudding smothered in warm custard!! :)

  284. RachaelDecember 8, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    Since going to a plant strong diet, my favorite holiday tradition is stuffing and roasting a sugar pumpkin. I’ve varied the stuffing for a traditional bread stuffing with fresh cranberries to a multigrain with veggies. New diet=new traditions.

  288. Megan TeetDecember 8, 2012 at 4:49 pm

    My favorite holiday dessert is pumpkin pie-my dad has made it every year as far back as I remember…he makes the best!! I also love mint chocolate soy milk which only comes out at the holiday season…so I guess that counts as holiday:)

    I also made my own cranberry sauce, which is my favorite Thanksgiving food (the canned kind that slides out is the best). I decided I needed a healthy version…

    • Alisa FlemingDecember 8, 2012 at 7:51 pmAuthor

      Delish! Thanks for sharing Megan!
