Harvest Kale Salad with Roasted Acorn Squash, Toasted Hazelnuts, and Apple-Cinnamon Vinaigrette {Let Them Eat Kale Cookbook Giveaway}

Harvest Kale Salad with Roasted Acorn Squash, Toasted Hazelnuts, and Apple-Cinnamon Dressing

From first bite, I’ve always been a kale-lover, but that might be because the first time I had it I was an adult. (My mom has a serious dislike of all leafy greens so she literally never made them – not once! – for my sister and I growing up. But don’t worry, we weren’t veggie-deprived! She was still of the strict belief that every meal should include a vegetable.)...

Healthy Candy Apple Wedges {Paleo}

DSC_3862(small)

How many of you will admit to sneaking some of your kid’s Halloween candy when no one is looking? I don’t have kids (yet!), but yeah, I’d be guilty as charged. It’s the stuff we won’t buy for ourselves, but if it’s just hanging around, it’s fair game. If you didn’t buy it for yourself, the calories don’t count, right? ;) I like to have healthier treats that will still satisfy a sweet tooth at the ready....

Lazy Sauerkraut Pierogi Casserole with Apple

DSC_0460(small)

Once the familiar crisp chill of autumn settles in, my mom eases back into her routine of making big traditional comfort meals for our Sunday suppers, instead of casual dinners cooked on the grill. A few years back she started making a dish called Lazy Pierogies that she learned from an old friend of the family. I was recently craving this dish, and as my mom was reading me the recipe over the phone, I saw my next project materialize....

Before I tell you about this cake, I want to give a huge, heartfelt thank-you to all of you who commented on my last post…your kind thoughts and words of encouragement meant the world to me.  Thank you for your support and for reading my blog!  XOXO, Faith And now for the cake…I have found my ultimate autumn cake.  (Which, oddly enough, does not contain pumpkin…I know, I’m a little surprised too!)  And if you’re a fan of New York-style crumb cake (you know, the coffee cake with the mile-high layer of streusel on top), this will likely be one of your favorites as well....

Baked Apple Fritter Donuts

img_7456-small

I’ve been dying for apple fritter donuts.  Apples, as one of my favorite fruits, are always abundant in my house.  I had a little leftover Guinness in my fridge from making this stew.  Saturday morning was free for me to experiment in the kitchen.  Did I really have any choice but to make these little beauties?  As these were baking, the whole house smelled like a pastry shop.  The floral scent of apples filled the air and was heavenly combined with the warming scent of cinnamon.  These fritters tased phenomenal – the dough was yeasty and slightly chewy, the apples fruity and floral, and the […]...

Baked Caramel-Apple Custard Oats

img_0535-small

If ever there was a dish that blurred the lines between breakfast and dessert, this recipe is it.  The three main ingredients – apples, oats, and seeds/nuts – are the makings of a healthy start to your day.  But in this recipe these ordinary ingredients are transformed into something truly decadent, sure to please dessert lovers.  I used a little molasses and organic pure cane sugar for a caramel flavor, but feel free to use any sugar you have on hand.  The texture of this is luxuriously smooth, and the egg gives it a custard-like quality, which is why I decided to caramelize a little […]...
