KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend, guys!! I've got one beautiful small biz to share with you today, and then I'm doing things a bit differently for today's Friday Finds. I'm getting a bit overwhelmed with complimentary goodies this week, and I wanted to take this time to share my favorites with you. I'll be doing an unboxing video featuring the sample items, to post next week! But first, I did want to share one gorgeous shop with you guys. Check it all out below!

Pictured above are some handwoven home goods by Melody Fulone. Her shop is full of unique and beautifully woven wall hangings, pillows, many other home accessories; and even a bit of fiber art jewelry. I really love the neutral colors and the modern designs.

Shop the 2018 Winter Collection. And keep an eye out for a DIY kit for a crochet wall hanging in a few weeks. Melody will also be releasing her spring collection in late March!


This next brand will go into both an unboxing as well as a B…

Dairy-Free Homemade Hot Cocoa


I recently found out that neither of my daughters can have any milk whatsoever (not w/out getting sick or having rashes). If you have a lactose intolerance or milk allergy, you know how hard it is to find pre-packaged sweets that don't contain milk.

At Christmastime hot cocoa is a staple in my home, but it's impossible to find it at the grocery store without milk in the ingredients. I also like to avoid the extra trip and cost of buying dairy-free hot cocoa mix at the health-foods store. Luckily my local grocery store carries dairy-free carob baking chips, so I've come up with a dairy-free hot cocoa recipe that is so decadent, it's like drinking chocolate syrup. You can thin it out with more dairy-free milk if you want to, but why on earth would you want to do that? Merry Christmas!

Ingredients:
*makes 4 large servings

-5 cups dairy-free milk (unsweetened & plain-flavored) ex: soymilk, rice milk, coconut milk. I used plain unsweetened soymilk.

-2 cups dairy-free carob baking chips

-1/4 cup powdered sugar

Instructions:

1. Pour milk into a small saucepan and heat on the stove on medium high until warm (a minute or two)

2. Add in carob chips and stir frequently with a whisk until melted.

3. Add in powdered sugar and bring to a simmer, continuing to stir (a few minutes).

  1. My husband is both Lactose intolerant AND needs to stear away from gluten in his diet. He can tollerate a little here and there. So, hoorah for you in finding some way to get around this problem.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Krisztina!

  2. I can't imagine being lactose intolerant... so much to have to adapt around!

    1. It's been challenging. Have to make a lot of homemade stuff for the girls. As for myself, well I make myself sick on cheese every now and then because it's worth it to me! Lol.
