Happy Halloween! BoOoOoOo.

I used to love Halloween. My friend Anna and I would start talking mid-summer about what our costumes would be. My favorite costume was a garden gnome, for which I wore green tights, an oversized blue shirt (that I rubbed with bronzer so it would look dirty), a doctored santa hat (took out the white sections), and a beard. A couple years ago I went as an emoticon; I wore all black and stuck tape to myself into a :P face. The whole “sexy” halloween costume was never really my thing.

Spicy White Cheddar Chili

Spicy White Cheddar Chili //

So much carb dunking around these parts.

Although I’ve been on a soup kick for over a month, this is the first truly chilly week where soup feels necessary, and I’m digging it.

Whole Grain Flax and Millet Baguettes

Whole Grain Flax and Millet Baguettes! Easier than you think,  and there's NOTHING like homemade bread!

For years I’ve been a devoted Panera customer. If I’m going out to lunch, you can bet I’ll be at Panera about 90% of the time.

Then, just a few weeks ago, I went in and ordered my You Pick Two, requested a whole grain baguette on the side, and they said “We’re not doing baguettes anymore, but would you like a dinner roll?”

…no. I want a baguette. That’s why I’m here. That’s always why I’m here. Where am I? Who am I? Why don’t you have my bread?

Caramelized Apple Cinnamon Cluster Granola

Caramelized Apple Cinnamon Cluster Granola #vegan #glutenfree //

I used to dislike apple-flavored things, or at least I thought so. I also thought I disliked the taste of wine, and wasn’t much for TV. Things change.

It turns out it’s the fake apple flavor that I dislike. Apple martinis? Nope. Apple candy? Noooo thanks. A packet of apple cinnamon oatmeal? Bleh.

Take some real apples (honeycrisp, preferably), peel them (at first I wrote “feel” them – hehe), chop them, then caramelize them with some brown sugar? Now we’re talking.
