Vegan Thai Pumpkin Soup


This was seriously the fastest, easiest thing I’ve made in a while. The only thing that might be tricky is getting your hands on Tom Kha Gai paste, but I’m sure you can find it on the internet and if all else fails, make your own! It’ll be a mix of garlic, lemongrass, ginger, sugar, salt, and chili. Try it out!

Bacon Pumpkin Pasta


Since we have 800 pounds of pumpkin (or at least it feels like that much), I had to make something with pumpkin for lunch. And this was really yummy! Pumpkin is super nutritious and can work well in savory and sweet dishes, but you never see it in savory dishes! (at least I’ve never seen it) Pumpkin can do so much more than just become pie, and this pasta is the tip of the iceberg!

Pumpkin Spice Latte


I used to buy Starbucks everyday, multiple times a day. And my old roommate used to work there, so she would bring home old cheese danish and cake pops. Basically 50 percent of my diet was Starbucks, and life was good. But since having Ellie, every dollar saved is a dollar that can go to her or making her life more comfortable. And at 5 euros for one pumpkin latte, Starbucks can freaking forget it. So I think it’ll be a long time before me and Starbucks rekindle our romance. Luckily, this recipe is just as good as the real thing, maybe even better. Because I doubt Starbucks uses actual pumpkin in their version. Enjoy!

Deviled Eggs


Deviled eggs are the perfect snack or appetizer for a dinner party. They are quick, easy, and GORGEOUS, depending on the time and care you take in handling your eggs. Eggs are one of those ingredients that seem simple to prepare, but sooooo many things can go wrong. Your whites can break apart or split while peeling, the eggs can be undercooked, or more commonly, OVERcooked. I learned how to boil an egg from my mom and it took me so long to figure out why the outside of the yolks were always a little grey. It was because I was overcooking them. Don’t overcook your eggs. Ever. If you want a good deviled egg or simply a good boiled egg- follow these directions exactly.

Chia Banana Pancakes


Okay, so this is probably the healthiest thing I’ve made in a while, and it’s about time. And these are so good I promise they don’t even need syrup. The bananas keep them super moist on their own. You’ll need a blender, a stick blender, OR a food processor, but then you can just pour or spoon the batter out of the blending container. Very easy with minimal clean up. You can also leave out the chia seeds and protein powder if you like, I was honestly just trying to clear out my pantry. But I will say the vanilla protein powder does add some vanilla flavor, and chia seeds add a serious punch of fiber and you don’t even notice them once you blend it all up.
