A few things you need to know about this Cranberry Lemon Curd Tart: 1️⃣ It’s stunning. Everyone will remember this for years to come. 2️⃣ It’s #dairyfree ✔️ and #glutenfree. ✔️ 3️⃣It tastes AMAZING. Tangy and refreshing. A great addition to the pumpkin and pecan pies. 🥧 4️⃣ The crust! The crust! The crust! It’s made from GF gingersnaps. (My fave are @pamelasproducts.) 5️⃣ The only baking involved is for the crust. The rest is no-bake. 🙌 6️⃣ And because it’s served cold, has to be made in advance, so it forces you to move it up the priority list. Who needs stuffing and turkey when you can eat ten kinds of pie? 😉 . Here are the pies/tarts on our list so far: 🥧 Oatmeal Pecan Tart 🥧 Caramel Pumpkin Pie 🥧 Buttermilk Pumpkin Pie (You need at least two pumpkin pies.) 🥧 Mincemeat with Hard (Boozy) Sauce 🥧 Cranberry Lemon Curd 🥧 My Mom’s Dutch Apple Pie 🥧 Butterfinger Peanut Butter Pie (For my 7th grader. He will probably eat the entire thing by himself.) . Serious question: how many pies is too many? 🤔 . http://cafejohnsonia.com/2014/11/cranberry-lemon-tart.html #thanksgiving #pie #tart #cranberry #dessert #thefeedfeed #food52 #food52grams

I almost forgot about these Pumpkin Dulce de Leche Cheesecake Bars. I know what you’re thinking: how could I possibly forget something that makes you want to lick your screen?! I don’t have a good answer. 😜 What I do have is a bag of @pamelasproducts Pumpkin Bread Mix in my cupboard calling my name. Pamela’s Products are my go-to for #glutenfree flours, mixes, and other goodies. (The ginger snap cookies are 👌.) The quick bread mix is turned into a cookie crust and pecan streusel topping with a thick, gooey layer of dulce de leche-swirled cheesecake filling. 😵 🥧 If pie’s not your thing and you still want something pumpkin-y and delicious, go make these immediately! . http://cafejohnsonia.com/2016/10/gluten-free-pumpkin-dulce-de-leche-cheesecake-bars.html #food52grams #pamelasproducts #cookies #dulcedeleche #cafejohnsonia #thefeedfeedbaking

I think it’s #TacoTuesday, right? I totally failed. We are having boring pasta. 😩 What I really want is a plate of these #veg#vegan Austin-inspired tacos from the new #SimpleGreenMeals book. They are sooooo good and everyone on the @simplegreensmoothies team loves them so much they became the cover photo! (Photo by me. 😉) 😍 You can get to the recipe through the link in my bio. Tap on the pic and you’ll be taken right to the recipe. 🌮🌮🌮 I think I could eat these every single day. Cauliflower, sweet potatoes, and chickpeas in tangy BBQ sauce and topped with a mayo-free coleslaw - sooo much good stuff in there. And with plenty of avocados on top too! 🥑❤️ . #the#thefeedfeedn #thefeedfeed #plantbased #vegan #glutenfree #foodphotography #food52 . https://simplegreensmoothies.com/recipes/vegan-tacos-austin

Looking for an alternative to traditional stuffing? One of my favorites is Brown Rice Dressing with Dried Cherries and Pecans. . Two years ago, my friend Kelly @noshandnourish hosted a #Plantsgiving feast up in the beautiful Colorado mountains. The meal was spectacular. One of my contributions was this dressing. I say “dressing,” but it’s essentially a pilaf loaded with yummy things. . Have you ever ditched the turkey at Thanksgiving? I’m not sure my family would miss it. 😂 I’m thinking of making Kelly’s Hearty Butternut Walnut Loaf. Soooo good. And without all the work. 💪 . #plantsgiving #glutenfree #vegan #thanksgiving #recipe #foodphotographer #plantbased #cafejohnsonia . https://cafejohnsonia.com/2016/11/brown-rice-dressing-with-cherries-and-pecans.html

Salad is sometimes an afterthought when it comes to Thanksgiving...but it will be a shining star if you make my Shaved Fennel Asian Pear Salad with Pomegranate and Watercress. 🌱🌱🌱 It’s fresh and crunchy. It’s made with ingredients that you may not use everyday - it feels a little more fancy or special. It’s easy to make. And everyone I know who has made this or tasted it (or both!) LOVES it. 🌱🌱🌱 #plantbased #plantsgiving #thanksgiving #thefeedfeed #glutenfree #vegan #salad #recipe . http://cafejohnsonia.com/2016/11/shaved-fennel-asian-pear-salad-with-pomegranate-watercress.html

It’s been a week, am I right? My emotions have been all over the map. I am still processing everything that’s happened, as I’m sure you are too. The other night I couldn’t get to sleep, so I stayed up late and updated an old blog post with new photos. (Seen above.) Thanksgiving is only a few days away. Usually I have my menu all decided by now. My FIL is joining us this year and I’m toying with the idea of going out instead of making everything. 🤔 I’m sure I’ll cave in and go all out. 😂 One thing is for sure, this Butternut Squash Bake with Cranberries and Apples will be on repeat all fall and winter long. The original recipe, which I cannot find, came from my friend Jenny. That was back in the early days of blogging when she invited me join a monthly cooking club. It was a lot of fun, and I miss those days! Now our kids are in middle school and I’m nearly 40 instead my twenties. 😉 Are you feeling in the mood for the holidays, or are you having a difficult time getting psyched up for it too? Go make a pan of this and see if it helps. I’ll do the same. 😊 #thanksgiving #butternutsquash #cranberries #vegan #glutenfree #cafejohnsonia

Most of last year, I helped my good friend Jen Hansard from @simplegreensmoothies develop over 100 #plantbased recipes for her new book, Simple Green Meals. Jen also asked me to photograph the book. 😍 Every recipe was created, then tested numerous times by our SGS team and community. We made sure they were perfect before they went into the book. Needless to say, the recipes are DELICIOUS. Over on SimpleGreenSmoothies.com, you can find one of my favorite recipes from the book, Almond Butter and Jam Muffins. They are a great breakfast or snack. Pockets of jam are baked inside for a little surprise when you bite into the muffin. It’s probably the number 1 fave muffin recipe my house. #simplegreenmeals #muffins #baking #foodphotography #breakfast

Hi friends! I’m in Orlando, Florida for the next few days for the @producemarketingassociation #FreshSummit with the @SuperFreshGrowers team and @noshandnourish. We are going to be handing out samples of recipes made with #AutumnGlory apples, including my new recipe for Fresh Autumn Glory Apple Chutney. My family loves the combo of fresh apples, dried fruit, pecans, and spices. It’s s fun change from cooked chutney or jam for this appetizer. Follow along on my stories today for some behind the scenes peeks of PMA. And if you’re here, please stop by and say hello and we will feed you! Today we are handing out samples of Kelly’s Autumn Glory Quesadillas and Apple Sangria. 🍎🍷
