5-Spice Roasted Butternut Squash Fries with Creamy Sriracha Dipping Sauce

For me, this time of year is simultaneously wonderful and, well, kind of tough. I love the idea of cozying up and basically straight-up hibernating – and I love it a little more every year. Last winter, I learned all about...

Sweet Potato Pie Baked Oatmeal with Crunchy Pecan Streusel Topping

Pie for breakfast? This recipe says YES! Okay, well. Calling this Sweet Potato Pie Baked Oatmeal “pie” is admittedly a bit of a stretch. It’s more of a baked oatmeal with the flavors of...

19 Vegan Thanksgiving Side Dishes

Tableside conversations notwithstanding, it’s tough out there for a vegan on Thanksgiving. Aside from the most basic salad and the cranberry sauce, there’s not much that’s safe to eat. Or is there?! The truth is, mainstream Thanksgiving side dishes...

Dairy-Free Impossible Pumpkin Pie

I have to admit that pie, in general, is not my forte. It’s a crust thing. I love to eat it, but as far as making it goes, I have never mastered that supremely...

Coconut Whipped Sweet Potatoes with Maple-Pecan Drizzle

Maybe it was just the specific recipe that graced our table growing up, but I have particularly non-fond memories of a particular sweet potato atrocity: Canned hunks of sweet potatoes + brown sugar + marshmallows...

Pumpkin Spice Cashew Coffee Creamer

Photographing pumpkin stuff is hard. I’ve done the gratuitous background pumpkin, the pumpkin as an eating vessel, simply leaves for an overall fall vibe … really though, it’s tough to convey “pumpkin” without also being, you...
