This is my interpretation of a New York cheesecake. I’ve swapped the traditional cream cheese for a delicious mixture of cashews, coconut, and vanilla.

My Spinach Artichoke Dip is a favorite snack for watching football, as an hors d’oeuvre at a party, or with a glass of wine on the deck while the sun goes down. 

As I write this a week before Thanksgiving, I realize that soon, lots of people will be spending their hard-earned money on holiday gifts for friends and family. I get it. Every extra dollar in your pocket this time of year adds up. But one thing I’m willing to splurge on even if it means one less spa treatment is organic turkey….

This recipe is easy to make on your own, especially if you have a lot of spices in your cupboard. It is needed for the recipes below but you can always buy this one pre-made too.

This vegan, gluten-free crust is so good you can use it for any pie recipes, sweet or savory. It’s a keeper! Use with my pumpkin pie recipe – also vegan

So how do I make cranberry sauce healthy? To sweeten the organic cranberries, I use coconut sugar. And in my opinion, my cranberry sauce tastes better than traditional Thanksgiving.

Making your own pumpkin purée means you get a fresher, more flavorful product, and you know where the pumpkin came from – and that it was grown organically.

How about our Green Bean Casserole made from scratch, vegan friendly and enjoyable for all?! The perfect combination of crunchy and creamy in a vegetable dish… what more could you ask for!

The only thing more comforting than a bowl of soup is a bowl of homemade soup that is both vegan and gluten-free. There’s something special about cooking comforting meals like this during the Fall that will warm you up and have your kitchen smelling festive.
