When I was a kid, I HATED pickles. Like seriously hated them. I hated them so much I would gag if a little piece of pickle made it’s way onto my sandwich.

Homemade Dairy Free White Chocolate

Skip the vegetable oil laden store bought white chocolate chips and make your own instead with wholesome real food ingredients | www.vibrantlifearmywife.com #glutenfree #dairyfree #paleo

Who knows?!? But I’m kind of okay with it. I’ll just stay home and drink my Hot Buttered Rum and make sugar cookies with my husband and my puppies. Wow that sounds way lamer when I actually write it out than I did in my head. Maybe next year we will work on that whole sociable thing… Continue reading
