Friday Favorites


{remember these old favorites?!?}

Happy Friday!! Since it’s officially November… aka well into holiday season… I’ve already been drafting my list of baking experiments for the next month and my list is growing ridiculously long. Please tell me I’m not the only one doing this already. A large majority of my ideas involve veganizing and healthifying a bunch of my family’s classic cookie and dessert recipes buuuutttt I’m honestly a little nervous for the results. Part of me has such a connection to those classic butter-filled, sugar-laden recipes and feels a little strange tweaking what is already SO GOOD (but so NOT GOOD for you). But the other half of me just naturally loves lightening up my favorite guilty pleasures—- so here goes nothin’ I guess! I’ll keep you posted via Instagram, obvs.

I’ve loaded this edition of Friday Favorites up with lots of warm, nourishing, oh-so-satisfying comfort food, since that’s what I’ve been craving all week long. I swear it’s like my body knows it’ll be going into full-on hibernation mode come December. If you’ve forgotten from last year, I absolutely hate cold things.

Now go enjoy some delicious food this beautiful fall weekend and see you Monday 🙂

we MUST start with these turmeric & cinnamon pumpkin pancakes

please gawk with me over this white bean pumpkin hummus

i’m getting SO excited for thanksgiving, especially thanks to recipes like this kale & caramelized onion stuffing

and these curry pumpkin burgers & kale salad with tahini miso dressing

since we’re on a kale kick, how about this roasted sweet potato, brussels sprout, and kale salad with pistachios

oh she glows never misses a step— even with these simple diy burrito bowls

Hi, I’m Liz and this is my food blog where I share my love of healthy foods and whole ingredients. You will find mostly vegetarian dishes, plenty of sweets, and lots of love from this little kitchen in Durham, North Carolina!


  1. “Part of me has such a connection to those classic butter-filled, sugar-laden recipes and feels a little strange tweaking what is already SO GOOD (but so NOT GOOD for you).” YES. I’m in exactly the same boat! It’s seriously fun, but I sort of feel like I’m cheating on all of these delicious classic recipes!

    Thank you so much for linking to my Gluten Free Vegan Pumpkin Muffins – so so good! This list of comfort food is on point – I’m totally trying those Curried Pumpkin Burgers!

    • It’s so true! But I see you’re doing the same with your new e-book (which I’m SO excited for btw) 🙂
