KCL 2018 Beauty Awards

Welcome to the latest beauty edit and the very first beauty awards here on the blog! I’ve tried so many wonderful beauty products this year and wanted to let you guys know which were my top must-have products of the year. I’ve picked from new and small businesses only, as I love to work with indie brands. And like most of the beauty brands I review; most of these are organic, natural, and cruelty-free.

These are the items that long after the required testing and promotion period, I find myself still using and preferring above any others. The're the products which despite a never ending stream of free PR samples, I would still spend my own money (and in some cases have) in order to get more of. And whether affordable or more costly, these are the beauty products that I truly think are worth the price. So if you’re thinking about adding more beauty or selfcare products into your 2019 routine, I highly recommend each of these brands.

A Delicious Dairy-Free Pumpkin Pie


Pumpkin pie is one of those dishes I absolutely have to have on Thanksgiving. There are several different ways to make a classic pumpkin pie dairy-free. You can use canned coconut milk, silken tofu, or any dairy-free milk substitute like soy milk. I used lactose-free milk simply because that was what I had on hand; so this recipe is great if you have lactaid, soy milk, almond milk, or coconut milk in a carton.

I used the Easy Pumpkin Pie Mix because, well, this recipe is supposed to be easy. Yeah, I see all of you last-minute readers googling "easy last-minute pumpkin dessert". I feel ya! Truth be told, I used store-bought pie crust for these pies. Though if you have time to make the crust from scratch, here's a basic pie crust recipe with tips.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 30 oz can Easy Pumpkin Pie Mix
  • 2/3 cup lactose-free milk (or dairy-free option like soy milk)
  • 4 large egg yokes
  • 1 tsp liquid maple flavoring (optional)
*makes one 8 or 9" pie or one large deep-dish pie

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Prepare your pie crusts and heat oven to 425 F. I'm glad I used two small 8" pans instead of a deep dish. The filling cooked through nicely, and the bottom crust was nice and crispy.

2. Blend the ingredients in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Pour into the pie pans and bake at 425 for 15 minutes then bake at 350 F for about 60 minutes. Enjoy!
