Baked Pumpkin Pie Breakfast Casserole

Yesterday we talked about this pie. Unfortunately, I can’t share the recipe with you, because it is from The Balanced Plate cookbook. Although, I did alter the recipe quite a bit (to use gelatin and coconut flour), however, it needs additional testing before sharing with anyone beyond my family. For some reason the other night when…

Pumpkin French Toast

A few weeks ago while Allan was traveling, Matthew asked if we could have something other than eggs for breakfast. See Matthew is a very smart boy. On the week days Allan makes breakfast for the family while I workout and get dressed for the day. Matthew knows that when daddy is making breakfast it…

Pumpkin Spice Latte

A friend of mine posted the following quote on Facebook today and I felt it was appropriate given the theme of this post: pumpkin. “No matter how urban our life, our bodies live by farming; we come from the earth and return to it, and so we live in agriculture as we live in flesh.”…

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal Bars

This would be the post that I would share my New Year’s resolutions, if I were the type to make resolutions. However, honestly, I’m not a big believer in resolutions. I don’t need a new year in order to get me in the mood to set goals and reach them. I’m just the type of…

Gingerbread Two Ways

Matthew and I have been enjoying our Advent Calendar activities. Matthew looks forward to opening the Advent Calendar door and unfolding the little piece of paper every day.

Pumpkin Pie Protein Bars

I am feeling a bit under the weather today and decided to skip my scheduled yoga session this morning in favor of additional sleep. Depending on how long I take to get this post up, I might be able to sneak in a quick 20 minute yoga stretch session before Matthew wakes from his nap….

Autumn in a Bowl

The air is crisp. The sun is lower. The sumac is red. Autumn is approaching. There is a grin on my face. Last week’s lows in the 50’s (!) had me craving pumpkin. I will confess that early last week I used our last can of reserved pumpkin; horrified, I immediately went to Target and…
