Vegetable Stew

This hearty vegan stew definitely hits the spot on a cool autumn day! And the recipe is very forgiving so throw in whatever seasonal vegetables you have on hand.

Even if you’ve been making applesauce with white or brown sugar forever, I promise, you absolutely will not miss it in this applesauce.  The apples have so much natural sweetness I think sugar would be overkill anyway.  I used Galas but don’t see why any variety of apple wouldn’t work […]

Dairy-Free Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer

Today is the first official day of fall which means it’s time for all-things pumpkin! Which makes me think… Have you started your fall decorating? Is there a “rule” regarding when to do that? I’ve heard some say Labor Day weekend but that just seems too early for me. I actually started a week ago and so far, I have a wreath on the door and a few pumpkins along […]
