About

Couldn’t Be Parve is a blog dedicated to natural parve (non-dairy) baking. Whatever the reasons a person may have for avoiding dairy, I truly believe that no one should have to sacrifice good taste to achieve those goals, especially when it comes to dessert. However I also believe that it is important to eat things that are as natural as possible, and therefore I only use natural substitutes for the missing dairy products.

It isn’t enough for a dessert to be “not bad for dairy-free.” It has be good period. I have been known to test my recipes at dairy meals, where people assume the dessert is also dairy, just to make sure it is up to my standards.
