Carrot-Coconut Soup

There are Christmas bins, boxes of presents to be wrapped/shipped and piles of laundry all over my house – but it’s not stopping me from making another pot of this velvety carrot-coconut soup for the second time in a week. I first got wind of this recipe while reading one of my favorite blogs, Orangette. I […]

Turkey Banh Mi Sandwich

If you are like me, Thanksgiving leftovers is almost just as exciting as looking forward to the actual Thanksgiving dinner. I mean, it’s the only time of year that eating pie straight from the fridge is acceptable in your pajamas. This year we are making two turkeys and in preparation of having a TON of […]

Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry sauce is one of those Thanksgiving dishes that has both loyal fans and passionate haters.  I am for sure a loyal fan.  I absolutely love the combination of that tart and tangy sweet sauce with the savory flavor of turkey.  The combo is such a good partnership that I almost want to give it […]

Orange Scented Candied Cranberries

  What is going on here? Thanksgiving is one week away (OMG what?!). I have some major holiday prepping to do before we have family come in from out of town Monday and before we host a 15 plus person Thanksgiving feast. The countdown begins and I need to go into turbo mode and get […]

Pumpkin Pecan Cream Cheese

I knew this was coming, it was inevitable. My brain goes straight to pumpkin EVERYTHING at the beginning of Fall, and then I start to spiral downward. Don’t be surprised if you get spammed with only pumpkin recipes for the next couple of months. I’ll try my darndest to spread them out. But when things […]

Big Pot of Chili

I’ve been dreaming of a big pot of chili for a while now. But it wasn’t until my aunt asked for my chili recipe for a cook-off at work, that I realized I had never posted my go-to chili recipe on el blog. Sure, I’ve posted this pumpkin chili recipe, that happens to be crazy […]

Sweet Potato Tacos

  We’ve been home for week with our new little bundle of joy, Henry. Maybe this is too soon to say, but the second time around doesn’t feel as hard of an adjustment. Sleep deprivation is a little bit more manageable. Working off of a new eating/pooping/sleeping schedule doesn’t feel as stressful. Guess you can […]

Thanksgiving Leftovers Pot Pie

After the big feast, do you ever wonder what to do with all of those leftovers? Sure, you can make leftover turkey sandwiches or turkey soup, but you can also make a hot turkey pot pie, stuffed with everything good from Thanksgiving.  Cornbread stuffing (or bread, whichever is your family’s favorite), dried cranberries, carrots, peas […]

Vanilla Bean Pear Crumble

My first attempt at making this was an almost complete fail. Let me back up a little and explain. Everything was going perfectly in the beginning, the crumble was just right and the pears ripe to perfection. Once in the oven you could smell the sweet aroma throughout the house.  It smelled so good I […]

Pumpkin Spice Crepes

I first made these in the beginning of October while we had family in town from the Bay Area. They were such a hit that I have been itching to make them again, before pumpkin-eating season is over. We all know that after Thanksgiving, sadly, it’s not considered pumpkin season anymore. Just like after Christmas, […]
