Dear Guts’ Favorite Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes

Happy Thanksgiving week everyone! I love any excuse to cook big meals, especially ones including squash and any excuse to have the oven roaring all evening since our radiators aren’t working (yeah, as I type this it’s 56 degrees in my apartment and Capslock is trying to crawl under my sweater). This post is to show…

Thanksgiving Tacos

Cranberry/Chipotle sauce between the shells. Cornbread stuffing ‘meat’balls. Apple cider brussels sprout slaw. Sour cream gravy.  When telling my friend about these Thanksgiving tacos, I said “it’s like a pilgrim came in your mouth”. Though I know I’d probably be better off not having repeated that sentiment, I’m not sure how else I’d adequately describe…

One Dressing To Rule Them All

This salad dressing is, seriously, extraordinary. I’ve made hundreds of different salad dressings over the last couple of years, but none came close to being as worthy of obsession as this one is. After making a version of it over a month ago, I’ve looked forward to eating huge salads every day whereas I generally…

Roasted Mushroom, Pumpkin & Sage Pesto Filled Ravioli

I’ve, regrettably, spent the first 25 years of my life ‘not that into’ mushrooms (the culinary ones, anyway). I’m not sure what launched the drastic change of tastes, but…yeah, I’m really into mushrooms lately. I haven’t made a single special meal without including them in months. I even made a creamy mushroom taco filler, with a sauce…

Pickle Relish

This may seem like an ill-timed post, seeing as how most people associate relish with summer/grilling and, as much as we may try to fight it, that season is waving goodbye. But, you know what, I didn’t go to an Amish market at the beginning of summer and buy a crazy amount of little cucumbers…

End of Summer, Lowkey Moroccan- Inspired Feast

I call this a lowkey feast because it comes together easily despite being composed of a good number of dishes and the prep work is separated over two days, meaning you don’t have to spend the precious last days of summer in the kitchen. What is all that beautiful food, you’re wondering?? Grilled Butternut Squash…

Mint and Basil Pickled Watermelon Tonics

It’s safe to say this is one of my favorite beverages I’ve ever had. I made it earlier this summer for a canoe trip down the Milwaukee River and then across a bit of Lake Michigan with my neighbors. It tastes like..what it is right now, the peak of summer. It’s a great drink to…

Brie & Fresh Fig Crostini

Fresh figs are such a rare and charming treat, perhaps even the rarest and most charmed. We only find them in our grocery store about once per year and, even then, they’re only available for a day or two at most. The first thing I buy after moving into a house that I know I’ll…

New Harvest Pierogies

I like the word pierogi because if you had never seen/heard of a pierogi and someone mentioned them, you’d probably picture something pretty similar to the little filled savory pastry that they are. These ones aren’t super traditional but they’re still familiar. Pierogies generally have cheese, usually cheddar, inside them but I’ve never much enjoyed…

Sunday Quick Post: Rhubarb + Ginger Barbecue Sauce

This should be called a Sunday Rushed Post as I only have a minute to write it up. Happy father’s day to all the papas out there! I made this barbecue sauces, along with a few other varieties, for my boyfriend’s dad. I swear I’m generally not a stereotypical, gender-based gift giver; I know people…
