Dairy Free Recipes 2012

Veggie pasta primavera can serve as the main course during either lunch or dinner.

In addition to vegetables, it includes dairy free cheese and soy milk.

Select the type of pasta desired and cook it according to the instructions on the package.

For a very healthy alternative, choose wheat pasta, which comes in various types.

During the final five minutes of cook time, add ten ounces of baby spinach, one each thin-sliced medium red and yellow pepper, and eight ounces of sliced mushrooms (if they are from a jar, drain them).

This is just one of the main dishes that someone who is lactose intolerant or has voluntarily chosen to give up lactose can enjoy.

Lactose free products include various styles of cream cheese, regular cheese, frozen foods, cookies, dessert bars, and even pizza.

Frozen dessert sandwiches feature unique flavors like key lime, peanut butter, and blueberry.

Each treat tastes great and provides none of the painful side effects common with dairy desserts.

Even if you do not have a restrictive diet, this food can be incorporated to reduce unnecessary fats.

Sugar Cookie Recipe 2012 - Perfect for your whole family

You will need:

3 cups flour
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter (softened at room temperature)
1 cup sugar
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt

First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, beat softened butter and sugar with electric mixer until it becomes light and creamy. Next, beat in the egg and vanilla extract until fully blended.

By hand with a spoon slowly stir in the flour and salt.

If you'd like rounded, "drop cookies", spoon about 1.5 inch balls of dough onto your cookie sheet, then immediately bake in oven for about 10 minutes, or until the edges of the cookie are golden. The dough will expand in the oven, so leave about 2 inches of space in between each drop.

If drop cookies are too plain and you're feeling creative, roll the dough onto a floured surface instead. Use a rolling pin to smooth the dough and use cookie cutters to shape figures about ¼ to ½ inch thick.

The rolling pin should be lightly floured as well to prevent the dough from sticking. With a variety of cookie cutters, your dough can be shaped and decorated for any occasion.

As with the drop cookies, after placing the dough on cookie sheets, bake at 350 degrees F for about 10 minutes or until the edges have turned golden.

When the cookies appear ready, carefully remove the sheet from the oven and immediately sprinkle them with sugar, or powdered sugar. Cookies can also be decorated with frosting, sprinkles, or melting chocolates.
