One year, my sister and I made salt dough ornaments with our mom. Homemade snowmen, Christmas trees, stars and candy canes adorned our tree that year. Those that survived two small children and a mischievous cat became a part of our tree decor for years to come. It’s one of my best childhood holiday memories.

Dunk to your heart’s desire—this creamy, dairy-free dip is loaded with fall flavor and nutrition from organic canned pumpkin. The trick to making it healthy is to swap out traditional cream cheese for a version vegan version blended from raw cashews. Serve with apple slices or gluten-free cinnamon crackers for a filling, festive treat!
Pumpkin is one of my favorite fall flavors. I love almost any baked good with pumpkin in it – pie, muffins, bread – but this year I wanted to add a new recipe to my repertoire. And boy did I find it! This delicious pumpkin soufflé is light, fluffy and can be made entirely organic. These individual soufflés are also a great way to change up your regular holiday menu.
Even though we’re a mostly organic household, my kids are not immune to the marketing and advertising ploys of the big pre-packaged food companies out there. Not a grocery trip goes by where I don’t hear, “Mom, can we pleeeeeaaaase get this!” I’m working on teaching them how to find the healthy alternative to the chemical and dye filled kids’ snacks on the shelves today. So I’m coaching them through label reading and the difference between “natural” and “organic.”
I’m all about streamlining the morning get-ready-for-school process. With three kids and a husband who all insist they are absolutely starving the second they get out of bed, I spend time searching for a breakfast that would be easy to prepare and more filing than a bowl of cold cereal. The answer, Bombshells, is organic breakfast bakes.
