Happy National Mousse Day!
Need a fast healthy meal as you're running for the door? Pack a little tub o' mousse, a spoon and a bag of granola and you're good to go. Depending on the base you use, mousse can be rich and decadent or packed with protein power. Either way, it will cure the cravings in crowds of all ages and give you a delicious "mousse-boost" during the hectic holiday season!  :)

Sunshine in the Mornin'

Happy National Lemon Creme Pie Day!
Sick of pie yet? I am not...I had cinnamon apple pie for breakfast and it was squealingly yumful!

Lemon cream pies are a tasteful changeup to the syrupy nutty squashy pies invading our tables this week. Superlight and easy and cheerfully bright, they're a zing of sunshine on your plate.
...and yes, they are delicious as breakfast pies too!  ;)

T and Toast

Happy's Thanksgiving and National French Toast Day!
Across the planet the universal language of gratitude is a homecooked meal...for me, that means waking your family up with the tempting smells of a crazyyumful breakfast! French toast is one of my favorites to and filling, yet easy enough to let you sit down and enjoy the meal too. Say thank you to friends, family and yourself with a sweetly drenched stack of toast this T-day weekend!

Enjoy your Vegan T-day...cheers!  :)

On The Square

Happy National Cake Day!
We have some big family birthdays that fall close to Thanksgiving every year, so we do the spectacular pie-a-palooza on T-day and crazy it up with cake on the weekend to celebrate. Can you say "group sugar buzz"?  ;)

My little nephew is hoping for a gooey drippy chocolatey cake feast...bonus points if it has a Disney Planes theme. My favorite cousin on the other hand has "grown out of" traditional birthday cakes and prefers something more snackable. I'm thinking a yumfully simple square pan cake is the way to go...

Now I just need to decide which one to make! What would you choose? What's your ideal birthday cake? Frosting or not? Does your birthday fall around a holiday? Do you celebrate them together?
