Everyday Classics from Lexie’s Kitchen {Giveaway} + Saturday Pancakes

If you’re not familiar with Lexie’s Kitchen, let me introduce you. Alexa Croft is an imaginative cook who creates recipes that are gluten, dairy, egg and soy free that anyone can enjoy. Inspired by her son’s dietary needs, she has created hundreds of recipes at Lexie’s Kitchen that are, quite frankly, astoundingly beautiful and delicious. A few weeks ago, she released her first cookbook Everyday Classics, a book filled with 68 tasty and essential recipes free from gluten, dairy, eggs and soy.

Everyday Classics from Lexie's Kitchen

These are really simple, basic recipes for everything you need in your allergy-free aresenal- sandwich bread, cakes, cookies, pancakes, pizza, pie, and more! Lexie even includes things like how to make your own nut milks and dairy-free sauces. Everyday Classics goes beyond basics like bread and includes recipes for main dishes, breakfasts and desserts. This book would be perfect for anyone getting started on a special diet, though the recipes are so beautiful that an old pro would enjoy it, too.

Janice says:

This recipe for pancakes looked great until I got to the palm oil. Since my daughter spent 2 years working in Indonesia/Borneo and learning that palm oil tree plantations are one of the largest destroyers of tropical rain forests, Orangutan habitat and lives of traditional people. I now boycott all product (nutella) that include palm oil. We need to know how it it produced.
