Food and memories are tightly intertwined. It's often around holidays and celebrations that we can miss those family traditions the most. One of my favorite resources for recreating special dishes is from Jules Shepard aka GF Jules. Her recipes include traditional foods like King Cake, Beignets, Irish Soda Bread, Pierogi and Holiday Cookies to name a few. She has worked hard to perfect her recipes and has shared them all for us to enjoy. She provides substitutes to make most of her recipes dairy free as well.
