Hey there! I'm Kayla. I love putting together awesome recipes and sharing them with anyone and everyone!
I've never understood people who keep their recipes to themselves. I live for creating tasty food that make other people as happy as it makes me! I am and will forever be a recipe sharer, which is one of my reasons for starting this blog.
When I married my husband, I didn't have much experience in the kitchen. But it didn't take me long to figure out that butter and sour cream can make anything taste good. There wasn't anything I made that didn't have dairy in it.
After about two years into my cooking journey, I ran into some mild health issues concerning my gut. Instead of healing my body through medicine, I decided to heal it with my diet. I soon discovered that my body did not react well to dairy. It was a very difficult and drawn out break up, but I made it a mission to find foods that I can enjoy just as much and share with people who would find them just as delicious.
Cutting dairy led me to the decision to eat foods that were simple and more nutritious. I typically make dishes that are not only dairy free, but also refined sugar free (I make occasional exceptions here) with product ingredients that are short and readable. Here you will also find recipes that range from vegan, vegetarian and gluten free.
I started The Dairy-Free Menu for those whose body cannot tolerate dairy, the breastfeeding mama's cutting it for their babies, the vegans out there looking for more dairy-free recipes, and for anyone else who wants to eat clean and tasty food. I want you to have a menu of options!
I hope you will try them out, whether you follow the recipes exact or even change it up and make it your own! Whatever you do, let me know if you and your family enjoyed them. And if you did, then share on!
More About Me
I work full time as a reading interventionist for elementary aged students. I teach struggling readers how to read, and it's a really cool job.
In my spare time, I'm in the kitchen testing recipes, adding them to the blog and making reels on Instagram and TikTok.
When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband Jesse and our dog Phoebe (like Phoebe Buffay).
