Happy almost long weekend! You’re nearly there! You probably know what you’re going to eat tomorrow for the big feast, but how are you going to show your long-weekend mornings some love?

I suggest you sleep in, put on your cozy slippers because, let’s be honest, those pajamas are staying on for as long as possible, and sip a large mug of coffee while eating some crispy-yet-fluffy gluten free waffles doused in maple syrup.

Sounds pretty darn perfect, doesn’t it? Mmmmm YES.

Simple Gouda and Sage Biscuits

When you’re a vegetarian at Thanksgiving, it’s really all about the sides and the bread. Sometimes they are one in the same, like with my mom’s ridiculously buttery and carbalicious stuffing. My plate usually fills up with that stuffing, green bean and artichoke casserole, and a big buttered roll. Carbs beside buttery cheesy vegetables beside carbs.

This year I’m going to hopefully add a little healthy goodness with a lentil loaf, which I’m already being made fun of incessantly for because “lentil loaf” sounds about as appealing as “nutritional yeast,” but I’m giving it a try anyway.

It’s almost that time, you know. CHRISTMAS TIME. It officially starts on Friday, and I can’t even stand the excitement.

Yes, I’m one of those Christmas people. Yikes.

BUT, at the same time, we need to mourn the loss of pumpkin season. It’s a short-lived and heavily-loved time of year. Caribou stopped carrying my pumpkin latte on Halloween, so I’ve been acclimating to a pumpkin-free world for a while now. Yes, on Halloween, the DAY OF PUMPKINS, they stopped offering pumpkin lattes. Doesn’t that seem wrong? Me thinks so.

When I think of donuts I always end up thinking about my grandpa. The only time I really ever ate donuts growing up, or enjoyed them enough to remember them, was on our annual family beach vacations. My Grandpa, no matter how slow he moved at his older age, would get up early and walk…

Thin and Crispy Salted Almond Butter Oat Cookies…

I’ve always been a thick-cookie person. Make ‘em fat and chewy and a little underbaked and we are rolling in the cookie happiness. Then I discovered the joy that is thin and crispy cookies. Somehow my sister and I got on the subject this weekend, and she reminded me about these perfectly thin and crispy…

When Ryan and I meet new people, and they learn that I blog about food, they generally say to Ryan something along the lines of, “Lucky you! You must eat so much good food!” Except he forgets to eat. Like, it’ll be 8:00 at night, I’ll ask what he ate during the day, and he’ll…

Sweet and Smoky Baked Tofu Tacos with Coconut Citrus Slaw…

I’m in a definite tofu phase right now, which is funny because for a long time I wouldn’t touch the stuff. At my college cafeteria, which was great in a lot of ways, there was a salad bar line where they had raw tofu cubes. I tried several times to like that tofu, but the…
