Mashed Potatoes

What's Thanksgiving without mashed potatoes? I think Tinleigh could eat mashed potatoes every day if I let her. I don't taste the difference between dairy and dairy-free. Very simple and easy to make the dairy-free.

Clean, peel and cut up 5 large potatoes

Place in boiling water for 30min or until soft

Drain and rinse potatoes

Place back into pan

Add between 1/2 and 3/4 Cup of Organic Chicken Broth

Melt 2TBSP of dairy-free butter (I used Earth's Best Soy Free)

Mix potatoes, chicken broth and butter until smooth.

*Note You may add more or less ingredient. I usually do not measure and just add what is need to our preferences. Also the meatballs pictured above with be in an upcoming recipe.

Holiday Preparations

With the Holidays just around the corner my stress level is also rising. See, this is the first time Tinleigh will be eating at the dinner table. My mind runs wild with all the what ifs, but I must take action and keep her safe. As you know with Thanksgiving and Christmas there is an abundance of food. Most of not safe for little ones with food allergies. I want Tinleigh to feel normal, well as normal as a 16 month old can feel. So this year I will be preparing her own Thanksgiving meal and taking it with us.  I will be posting recipes for the upcoming holidays. Come back tomorrow for the first one.
