Healthy Sweet Potato Casserole

Let’s be honest, the only time I think about eating sweet potato casserole is during Thanksgiving; amiright?! Like a complete cooked turkey, it seems like sweet potato casserole only falls within a Thanksgiving side dish category.

Maybe after you make this, you can see that this side dish can be made year-round! I’m thankful for that because when recipe testing a month before Thanksgiving, I was glad this could be eaten with most any dishes. For example, we had this casserole with my pecan crusted spiced salmon and broccolini and it was amazing!

Chai Latte Donut Holes

Starting out as a new blogger, it can be easy to follow seasonal trends. For example, my Instagram feed was filled with pumpkin spice this and pumpkin spice that for a month! Now, in all genuineness, I truly love pumpkin and all things pumpkin spice, but I know not everyone feels the same way!

So I went back to what life was like before pumpkin spice, chai spice! When I was in school, I would have collections of chai teas from coconut chai teas to dark chocolate cayenne chai tea; I was obsessed! Now that I have perfected the chai spice mix, I think this nostalgia will never leave!

Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding

Whether you are tired of hearing about pumpkin spice or can’t get enough, this recipe is perfect for both parties! The only reason why I know this is a fact is that my husband says so! Haha.

Usually, after photos have been taken, Michael will stick one ear out of the room to wait for those magic words: “Honey, would you like to eat this?” This time, he ate the entire jar before I could tell him what the special ingredient is in my chia pudding! For the record, he despises pumpkin pie spice everything!

Lavender Scones and Lavender Latte

I’m not quite sure why I don’t make scones enough. They’re super easy to make, with simple ingredients, and they taste amazing! Let me show you how!

I have tried many lavender baked goods in my time and what I have found is that it is too easy to use too much lavender! It seems as though the flavor is overpowering, “soapy” tasting, or just nonexistent. The best way to use lavender is to use it sparingly so it adds the perfect hint of flavor and aroma. In this recipe, I simply infuse the milk with the dried buds, resulting in just the right amount of the lavender flavor.
