I’m back!

Well, the blogging drifted off track for quite a while, but ’tis the season for gluttonous and culinary delights, so I’ll be adding some updates in upcoming days.

Since my last post in July, I snapped photos while making fresh lemonade…

Ah, summer… Seems so far away now.

For Thanksgiving, I attended a friend’s vegan potluck brunch. Vegan recipes are quite the challenge (for me), so I was happy with the final result of the vegan double-layer sweet potato (instead of pumpkin) cheesecake (recipe found here: http://www.vegkitchen.com/recipes/special-occasions-and-entertaining/double-layer-pumpkin-cheesecake/)…

In addition to the cheesecake, I tried a butternut squash lasagna recipe, which was… Eh. I’ll stick with run-of-the-mill meat lasagna or creamy vegetable lasagna from now on.

The day after Thanksgiving, I was craving the typical comfort food goodness of mac ‘n’ cheese, stuffing with chicken broth and homemade mushroom gravy (recipe found here: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Mushroom-Gravy-12013), potatoes au gratin, and kielbasa (wasn’t in the mood for poultry). Since I was feeling especially lazy, I bought a bunch of pre-made, boxed stuff.

Yeah… Definitely a “once in a blue moon” type of meal, but completely worth the faint pang of guilt.

Alright, that should do it for now. Look out for some holiday recipes to be posted soon!
