Fall Flavors: Sweet Potato, Faro, and Kale Detox Salad with Lemon Tahini Dressing

Anyone else feeling the Halloween candy or junk-food hangover today? The movers transported our stuff to the new-to-us house on monday, and we spent all of Halloween unpacking. By evening, I was exhausted.  In truth, by noon, I was exhausted but evening sounds a lot better.  Moving is the worst! So whether its the mountain of dark chocolate peanut butter cups I ate while answering the door for trick-or-treaters or exhaustion from our move, this anti-oxidant rich, detoxifying salad is just what my body needs!!  Its full of delicious, wholesome, seasonal goodness!

Halloween Sweet Potato Fries with Creamy Chipotle Dipping Sauce

I am a sucker for sweet potato fries.  At this very moment, I have a mental ranking the best places to order sweet potato fries running through my head.  For me, this equation is 50% about the fries and 50% about the dipping sauce.  By a ginormous margin, my favorite pairing for sweet potato fries is a creamy chipotle dipping sauce.  More than an aioli.  More than even the finest of house made ketchups.  I love the balance of the sweetness of the fry against the smoky, spiciness of the chipotle. Unfortunately, my favorite version of this combo is roughly 2300 miles from my house according to “the Google.”  So,…

Fall Flavors: Pumpkin Butter

Last week, I swooooooned over this apple butter!  And it is seriously swoon worthy.  But, on the off chance that you don’t have 3-4 hours, I wanted to provide this 20-minute, equally smooth pumpkin butter recipe for all my fellow fall flavor loving people! I would be remiss if I said the flavors were as intense as the slow simmered then baked apple butter from last week, but this 20 minute pumpkin butter is still packed with fall spices and naturally sweetened with coconut sugar, brown sugar, and maple syrup.  All fall long, I keep jars of this stuff for last minute brunch or coffee dates with friends. Pumpkin butter…
