Thanksgiving is still not over in our house. You see, when you buy a 9-pound (smallest we could find) organic, grass-fed turkey for a group of six people who don’t like turkey much, you have leftovers. Lots of leftovers. So, I preplanned. I stripped the turkey as soon as we were done, tossed the bones […]
I’m a big fan of essential oils for health reasons, but sometimes I add a few scents to the diffuser just to have everything smell lovely. Especially after the kids have made it smell funky. Here are my 11 favorite scents and combinations of essential oils for the holidays! 1. Orange and Thieves: I frequently add […]
Thanksgiving. It’s just a week away! Don’t worry, we’ve got this covered. Check out these fabulous dishes from a few of my favorite bloggers.
Another Paleo (ish) recipe today. This one uses green beans, which are sometimes considered a Paleo no-no, sometimes not. But, if you eat green beans, this green bean casserole is an amazing grain-free vegan Thanksgiving side dish. We’re going to need all the help we can get this Thanksgiving to make a few things […]
Though I’m gluten-free now, I still love the same dishes for myself (and my family) for Thanksgiving. It’ll take some doing to convert some of these to gluten-free recipes, but I’m on the case and will let you know if I stumble or succeed on each.
If you’re like most families in the U.S., you have a lot of leftover turkey (or tofurky), stuffing, potatoes, green beans and other sides. So, what do you do with it all?
I made a delicious pie today and used no cans! Hooray! It’s a fantastic Cream Cheese Pumpkin Pie that doesn’t require evaporated milk. Easy and delicious. I skipped the fancy part with the swirl on top and just mixed it all together since it’s just me and the kids today and it tastes the same […]
I tend to hoard canned pumpkin when it’s available ever since that freeze a couple years back made it difficult to find year-round. I opened up a can recently for something and had some leftover and blundered upon a recipe in my head that turned out great for myself and the kids. It was one […]
Day 336. It’s our last day of leftover “turkey” and I decided to make something that the kids should love: Turkey Mac and Cheese. This is a pretty simple dish using leftover Quorn Turk’y Roast (or Tofurky for a vegan version), fresh carrots and roasted onions. I’m also using a blend of Homemade Cheese Sauce Powder and […]
Day 335. Another creation for our second Thanksgiving, these potatoes were completely last minute. We remembered as the Fresh Green Bean Casserole was going into the oven that we hadn’t yet made the mashed potatoes. So, of course I decided to try something different with the 40 minutes I had left to create. I’m so […]
