Thanksgiving is coming next week – eek! Let the menu writing and food prepping begin! If you’re trying to bring more plants to your Thanksgiving table, then you’ll definitely want to add this Butternut Squash and Cauliflower Mash to your Thanksgiving table. Not only will it add a serious pop of color, but you’ll get some added nutrition benefits as well. The orange color also helped Taco overcome his traumatic Mashed Cauliflower Incident.
The holiday season is upon us, and that means it’s time to get into the kitchen and whip up those age-old family recipes with a modern twist. Today I’m changing up a traditional holiday appetizer for a plant-based approach: Stuffed Mushrooms. These mushrooms trade in the usual breadcrumb or meat filling for a vegetarian and gluten-free option: Walnut Stuffed Mushrooms with Cheddar, Apple & Sage.
If you’ve been following me over on social media, you’ve probably seen that Mr E & I have a new family member: Shiva the Diva. In the month since we’ve gotten her, she’s been lovable, mischievous, and a showstopper wherever she goes. And she truly lives up to her name! This year we’ll be celebrating Father’s Day with our Fur Baby. And in honor of Father’s Day approaching, I want to share my Top 5 Wildtree Picks for Dads & Dudes. Because even if you’re not celebrating Father’s Day in the traditional sense, a guy’s gotta eat.
Happy Memorial Day – the unofficial kick-off to summer! Being a resident of the Jersey Shore, we get more excited for this time of year than the holidays. Sitting on the beach, dining al fresco, and waterfront happy hours listening to some guy play a guitar are just a few of our favorite things. And if you’re like me and Mr. E, there’s probably a BBQ or 3 you’ll be hitting up over the next week. Read on for some food safety tips for keeping your BBQ (and guests!) safe this MDW.
As a kid, I LOVED dyeing Easter eggs. I couldn’t wait to start dipping eggs into the fizzy colored vinegar water with that wire holder that never actually was strong enough to hold up a hardboiled egg. Playing around with dozens of eggs in various color combos was my specialty. Which is why I was always sad when my mom would give away those eggs I worked so hard on to our nearby relatives. And then one day I become an adult and understood why. Because no single household has a need for six dozen colored hardboiled eggs. If you have some overzealous egg dyers in your house (and if it’s YOU and your significant other that’s awesome too!) and have tons of leftover Easter eggs, check out this recipe round-up for some creative uses for those eggs.
Happy Valentine’s Day! How will you be celebrating the Day of Love? With your Significant Other? Close friends? Or maybe even yourself for some serious self-care. Mr E and I rarely ever go out on Valentine’s Day. Mostly because neither of us particularly care about the Greeting Card Holiday. And because we don’t want to deal with crowds, price fix menus, and remembering to make a reservation. Want to hear more about it? Check out our teaser Podcast episode all about Valentine’s Day!
