Author Notes

Summertime vibes without that pesky dairy.

I love pretty much anything and everything located in the dairy aisle. To me, a meal is not a meal if cheese isn’t making an appearance. But, I have some friends whose bellies do not play nicely with dairy. Also, I am completely aware that I shouldn’t be eating cheese and butter by the pound. To that, I proudly present these luscious, sarsaparilla-filled delights. —Finchly
