Vegan Apple & Pumpkin Bread

apple - pumpkin bread4

Nothing says fall like apples and pumpkin and nothing smells better than a homemade bread baking in the oven!  I love to have healthy, homemade breads or muffins sitting around for a quick snack throughout the day or for a quick breakfast in the morning.  I thought this bread would be perfect for munching on while you’re getting all of your Thanksgiving preparations ready!  Let me just tell ya, this could not be any easier to make.  Saute your apples for a couple minutes and throw everything into ONE BOWL, mix, bake and EAT!!!  Continue reading “Vegan Apple & Pumpkin Bread”

pumpkin sage biscuitsAre you in need of something flaky, buttery, fluffy, a little carby and super delish!?  Yes?!  Well, then you’re going to need some of these biscuits ASAP!  Who doesn’t just love a biscuit?  Nothing but carbs smeared with lots of butter.  Jam and maple syrup are always an option.  For me, there’s really not very many things that can beat a warm, homemade biscuit.   Continue reading “Pumpkin & Sage Biscuits”

Garlicky Kale & Chickpea Salad

kale and chickpea salad3I absolutely LOVE this salad.  One of my favorite food bloggers is the Minimalist Baker.  I haven’t made very many of her recipes, but this is one of hers and it is without a doubt one of my most favorite salads ever!  If you’ve got 30 minutes, you’ve got plenty of time for a delicious and super healthy lunch or dinner!

Cornbread Pancakes & a Cranberry Cinnamon Compote

cornbread pancakes2OMG – this recipe is HEAVEN in my mouth.  A friendly reminder: I am from the south and to say that I love cornbread would be a huge understatement.  I will tell you, my mom makes THE BEST cornbread you’ll ever eat.  Hands down.  THE BEST.  Sadly, I’ve yet to perfect her cornbread.  My problem with cornbread is this:  I refuse to make a big pone of cornbread (unless I’m making it for a large group of people, which normally gets turned into dressing) because I would literally sit and eat the whole thing with lots of butter smeared on every single piece (or bite) I eat.  What man wants a wife that sits around eating cornbread and butter all day long?  That’s not an attractive quality, K?!  Continue reading “Cornbread Pancakes & a Cranberry Cinnamon Compote”

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Scones

If I’m ever worried or concerned about how a recipe tastes….I give Gabs a big bite and wait for her response.  She’s 2.  When something goes in her mouth that she does NOT like it immediately comes out.  Gaby’s way of eating my scones:  lick ALL of the icing off, then eat the scone!   Thankfully, she loved them!
