Gluten Free & Vegan Pumpkin Pie

When I first started eating plant based and gluten free one of the hardest times if the year was the holidays. Although I had been a vegetarian since I was a kid removing the eggs, dairy, gluten, and refined sugar from my diet left me with very few fun options at holiday dinners and parties. So I began to do something I never thought I’d be good at… baking. While I was always a pretty confident cook baking was never something I had much interest (or skill) for.  But I became determined to learn how to bake and figure out recipes to make them work for me. Pumpkin pie is one of my favorites and a recipe that took a lot of trial and error to create. Its now become a favorite of our family at Thanksgiving, I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!Read More »

Fall Bucket List

A bit late in posting this, we’ve already done a lot on this list but I still wanted to share. Every season we come up with fun things we want to try and do. As I mentioned in the summer bucket list, I feel sometimes there is so much pressure to do everything in a season, get the perfect picture, and have fun that we miss out on the fun and simply joy of being together. With that said here is our fall bucket list full of all the simple little things we hope to do to fully enjoy the season. Happy Fall!
