Pumpkin Bread with Maple Chai Glaze

It’s a good time of year to stock up on canned pumpkin because it’s most likely going to be on sale. It adds wonderful flavor to this quick bread but I also love using it in pancakes, cookies and even chili. Serve this bread at your upcoming holiday brunch and prepare to wow your guests!

Apple Cake

Fresh, locally grown apples are hard to beat this time of year. The farmers markets are loaded with a variety of them – each one unique in taste, texture and color. Typically for baking you want to go with a more tart apple like Ida Red or Granny Smith, but any variety will work here. Apple Cake

Broccoli Walnut Stir-Fry

Walnuts are one of my favorite ingredients to add to plant-based dishes because they add a nice meaty texture. In this dish they are paired with colorful veggies and coated in a spicy citrus sauce. This stir-fry makes a great make-ahead lunch or dinner to enjoy throughout the week. Serve this over rice or rice Broccoli Walnut Stir-Fry
