I know it’s been a (long!) while since I’ve done a Mosaic Mondays post, but I have a ton of stuff to share with you guys, so let’s just dive right in.
1. With fall officially here, it’s Pumpkin Spice everything season and I’m just as guilty as the next girl. I love it all (but I promise I have no intention of bombarding you guys with PS recipes, lol). When I recently found myself out of Pumpkin Spice coffee I had to get creative and you know what they say – necessity is the mother of invention. I came up with a quick and easy Pumpkin Spice coffee hack that I wanted to share with you: add a pinch or two of pumpkin pie spice mix (I always have this in my pantry!) per cup to coffee grounds before brewing as normal. It’s an easy way to get your PS fix without having to buy a specialty coffee or without having to head out to a coffee shop.
2. Have you tried Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic yet? It’s a wonderfully homey comfort food-type meal. Check out my recipe and post over on Recipe Girl.
3. Ok, so Green Evi’s blog is gorgeous. Her Warm Lentil Salad with Roasted Vegetables and Apples is calling my name, and her Chickpea, Spinach, and Sweet Potato Brown Rice Bowl is on my must-make list.
4. September is a big month for birthdays and my Fudgy Blueberry-Orange Chocolate Cake with Dark Chocolate Avocado Ganache is the perfect healthy way to celebrate. I shared the recipe over on my other blog, Healthy Sweet Eats, which is full of healthy treat ideas!
5. It’s slow cooker/crockpot season and if you’re looking for some new ideas, check out this collection of over 100 slow cooker recipes on Cooking Light.
6. Have you tried Peanut Butter and Co.’s new Pumpkin Spice peanut butter? It’s yum, and I used it to make some pretty epic Streusel-Topped Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter Muffins.
7. Right now I’m en route to Idaho for the Idaho Potato Commission 2015 Potato Harvest Tour! There I will be joining other bloggers, chefs, and media members, and we’ll be touring farms and learning about potatoes. I’m pretty excited! If you’re interested you can follow the hashtag #idahopotatoharvest on social media (I’ll probably be sharing mostly on Instagram).
