Pomegranates are a winter fruit. Why not indulge and eat tons when they are sweet? The health benefits are amazing! Talk about all the vitamin C and antioxidants they have. Of course there are tons of other health benefits. I have been thinking of what to make for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. After all, it needs to be special since we aren't seeing family this year. Regardless, we are foodies, so there is always a special meal of some sort for the holidays! What about a Pomegranate Winter Salad? Perfect for the holidays right? You get all the winter colors that are so vibrant and beautiful! Setting the table gives it an extra pop of color, serving this dish!?
This is my last pumpkin spice post for the year! I promise! I want to end this fall spice obsession with a list of what to make with pumpkin spice! There are so many amazing recipes I have seen. Here is a list of what I have made and would like to make with this spice. Of course there are many many ideas. These are just a few, if you are looking for some inspiration!
Lately most of my posts have been Pumpkin spice inspired recipes. After the holidays, I probably wont use it as much. December is more peppermint and chocolates for me. However, I will be gifting pretty jars of 3 Ingredient Pumpkin Spice Pecans for Christmas. I am also going to make breads, like this chocolate pumpkin spice bread.
I’ve been using pumpkin spice A LOT lately. Perfect excuse, because it’s fall. I had some leftover chicken and decided to make loaded pumpkin spice sweet potatoes. This meal is perfect to make with leftover thanksgiving turkey. I will definitely be making this again with turkey! Loaded sweet potatoes with everything fall. What else could you ask for? I only had a bit of chicken leftover and so I made my husband the one with chicken and I had the meatless one. They boys had resorted to russet potatoes. Honestly, I choose sweet potatoes over regular potatoes. Anything sweet is a YES.
What equals fall foods? Pumpkin spice, of course. You see it on the commercials and on many blogs. I too am obsessed with pumpkin spice everything! My husband loves spiced nuts. One of our favorites is the Habanero BBQ Almonds, which are sold everywhere, including your local Walgreens. To celebrate fall, I decided to make pumpkin spice pecans. It was delicious and simple to make, with only 3 ingredients!
Do you have a favorite side dish for Thanksgiving? I really love all my sides but my ultimate favorite is sautéed brussels sprouts and carrots with bacon. It is a must for Thanksgiving. It's full of fall colors and tastes amazing. Brussels sprouts and carrots with bacon is perfect, since there are so many dishes to already make. You don't have to worry about using multiple pans. I love roasted vegetables but this is one of the few vegetable dishes I like to sauté.
Seasonings and marinades are endless, with so many different combinations. I thought this would be a great time to share my top 3 favorite seasoning/marinades, since Thanksgiving is around the corner. Heck the holidays are here! Get adventurous and try something new for your tastebuds! Best of all, you can try them for lunch or [...]
By now you can see how much I love roasted vegetables. Adding farro to the mix makes it even better. For those nights you don't want meat. And by that I mean chicken. My husband is perfectly fine having chicken for breakfast, lunch and dinner but I get tired of it. This farro bowl is hearty and very filling. You got yourself some nice fall colors in this dish. Very halloweenish if you asked me. All I did was make some roasted vegetables and then realized the halloween colors are all in this dish! HA! In 15 minutes you have all the vegetables you need for a nutritious meal.
