Thanksgiving Buddha Bowl

Thanksgiving Buddha Bowl2This Buddha bowl might possibly be one of my favorites to date.  IT’S SO SO SO GOOD!!! I probably should’ve called this my “leftover” Thanksgiving Buddha Bowl… I’m sure you get my drift.  If you’ve been following along last week, I’ve made a few new side dishes that I think will be absolute perfection at any holiday meal OR at any meal year round for that matter!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes & Mushroom Gravy

garlic mashed potatoesIs it too early to put up Christmas decor?!  I don’t know why, but I’m beyond ready to decorate!  Every time I go to Costco and see all of their Christmas goodies it gets me more and more excited….mainly because I see how excited Gaby gets over it!  I’m loving this stage of life with her where everything is AMAZING in her sweet eyes, and she says, “LOOK, mommy!!  It’s so pwetty!!!”  I’m thinking Christmas this year might just be the best one yet… Continue reading “Garlic Mashed Potatoes & Mushroom Gravy”

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”

Mama’s Chicken & Dressing

We’ll call this my “Thanksgiving in June” recipe!  This is not my most healthy meal at all.  It’s NOT paleo, gluten free, OR vegan.  BUT I did use all organic ingredients, so that has to count for something good, right?!  No GMOs, baby.  It’s a meal we typically only eat two, maybe three times a year, and it’s ALWAYS served at Thanksgiving.  I’ve been super homesick for the last week or so and needed some comfort food.  Continue reading “Mama’s Chicken & Dressing”
