I found a local vegan bakery that makes a wide variety of treats. Vegan products are suitable for Dairy Allergic Diets because they are dairy-free. One of my favorite bakery treats is Chocolate Chip Cookies. Unfortunately, I have found that the pricing at those Vegan Specialty Bakeries can be exorbitant.

I saved one last jar of my homemade blueberry jam from last summer, knowing that during the long cold months of winter I would likely use it in a recipe. The jam was just the right amount of fruity, summery flavor needed for a cold winter's morning.

When it comes to breakfast, and if you haven't already heard, the Italians don't believe in the heavier, cooked breakfasts that Americans are used to. They like lighter foods like toast with marmalade, fresh fruits, cake, and bread with prosciutto.… Continue reading Italian Apple Cake
