Are you the type of person who eats according to the date on the calendar? In other words, are you easily offended when someone mentions pumpkin outside of the months of October and November?

If so, then I suggest that click that little red “x” in the corner. of your screen. Because what I’m about to share with you today may not be suitable for certain audiences.

No, it’s not a pumpkin recipe (although that wouldn’t be THAT far fetched – I did make myself a pretty good pumpkin pie smoothie the other day…), but it’s pretty darn close. Ready for it?

Hi there! Long time no talk!

Things have been pretty crazy around here lately. Between wrapping up my second-to-last semester of grad school (!!) and wrapping up Christmas presents (just kidding, I still have SO much shopping left to do), I’ve hardly had any time to devote to this little corner of the internet. BUT I’m back – and, in exchange for your patience, I’ve baked you some cookies…

30+ Uses for Thanksgiving Leftovers

Don’t let your Thanksgiving leftovers go to waste! Check out these 30+ easy and delicious was to incorporate your Thanksgiving leftovers into your post-holiday breakfasts, lunches & dinners.

 

Thanksgiving is only 2 days away (yay!), so chances are you probably already have your pretty much menu set in stone. But, have you given any thought to how you’re going to use those leftovers in the days that follow?

It’s estimated that Americans throw away an average of $277 million worth of food EVERY THANKSGIVING! I don’t know about you, but that is one statistic that I do not want to be a part of.

So, today I’m sharing some of my favorite ways to incorporate Thanksgiving leftovers into any (or all!) of your post-Thanksgiving meals. And, to top it all off, I’ve also thrown in a few delicious recipes from fellow RD bloggers to get you started.

Of course, this is by no means meant to be a comprehensive or exclusive list. Rather, this is just meant to help you to start thinking outside of the box when it comes to using up Thanksgiving leftovers. Don’t be afraid to get creative in the kitchen and try new things – that’s half the fun!

I hope you leave feeling inspired (and hungry)! (more…)

If you know me at all, then you know that I have a major sweet tooth. I’m the girl that will leave part of her dinner untouched, and yet jump at the first mention of dessert. I like to think that I have a second stomach and it’s reserved exclusively for dessert.

That being said, It should come as no surprise that I was a fan of baking long before I was a fan of cooking. In fact, it wasn’t until a few years ago that I finally began to experiment with dishes that DIDN’T revolve around sugar. These days, I tend to spend more time cooking than baking (probably a good thing considering cupcakes are probably not the most nutritious dinner option), but you’d better believe I still take advantage of any opportunity to bake up some sweet treats.
