Let Them Eat Pumpkin Pie

T-minus 6 days until Thanksgiving. I am so excited I can barely stand it. But I’m feeling horribly unprepared this year! Good thing I still have a few more days. My menu is all planned, but the problem is I’m still adding more pie. My friend Jen says they have a pie rule in their family – one per adult and one for every three kids. I have to amend that rule at our house because my kids LOVE pie and would eat it for every meal if I made pie as often as they request it. Our family “rule” is pumpkin pie for breakfast. It’s the one breakfast everyone can agree on. :)

I created a new collection on called “Let Them Eat Pumpkin Pie.” It’s not a throwback to Marie Antoinette, it’s a nod to our pumpkin pie breakfast “rule.” Let them eat pumpkin pie! A pumpkin pie for each and every one of us! (That’s the key to a successful Thanksgiving, I think.)

Curried Vegan Pumpkin Pie (Gluten-Free)

Curried Vegan Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin pie lovers fall into two (maybe three) camps – purists and adventurists. At least that’s the case in my family. My husband was abhorred by the idea of changing up the yearly pumpkin pie(s) until I started baking and he started tasting. We used almost-burnt caramel as a base one year. Another the pie was topped with streusel (and made with caramel). Another pie was a Thanksgiving Two-fer ala Dorie Greenspan. (Think: double layers or pumpkin AND pecan pie. Amazing!) There have been cheesecake-ish pies. And pumpkin cream pies. And then I decided to attempt the nearly impossible (if you ask my husband) and test out a recipe for a vegan pumpkin pie. Now this isn’t anything new. You’ll find pumpkin pies of all kinds out there in a simple internet search. The pie I wanted to make involved coconut cream and curry powder. Just to see what it would taste like. A sort of pumpkin pie experiment. What do you think? Would you try it? Would you sacrifice a good old fashioned pumpkin pie on the chance that adding curry powder might be just the thing you never knew you wanted on your dessert plate? Hmm. I was curious.

Gluten Free Oatmeal Molasses Rolls

Friends, I’m so happy to share another gluten-free roll recipe with you! I’ve really enjoyed working with Red Star Yeast on these recipes. Today, just in time for Thanksgiving, I’m sharing my new recipe for Gluten-Free Oatmeal Molasses Rolls. I’m so proud of how these rolls turned out – soft, sweet, and hearty all at the same time! I want to shout it from the rooftops!

Gluten Free Oatmeal Molasses RollsThank you to Red Star Yeast for sponsoring this post.

Years ago for Thanksgiving, I started making oatmeal molasses rolls from an old cookbook I have. I haven’t made them for Thanksgiving since becoming gluten-free, and I’ve really missed them! They were the best rolls. I suppose my mission the last few years has been to recreate my favorite recipes using gluten-free ingredients. I hate feeling left out when I make things for my family and can’t eat them anymore. So I set to work recreating this recipe and crossed my fingers it would work as I envisioned! (more…)
