    Detox Winter Salad

    Thanksgiving has officially come and gone. I made you guys an absolutely delicious mascarpone cheesecake recipe with caramelized cranberries that I was planning to share a few weeks ago but the lighting was all wrong and my photos didn’t do justice to how freaking delicious it truly was; unfortunately, those bummer photos translated into radio silence around here the past few weeks. Don’t worry, I’ll make it up to you with some delicious Christmas treats instead!

    On a happier note though, Wyatt and I hosted our first Thanksgiving feast this year for six other family members and it went off without a hitch. I only burned the cranberry sauce and we didn’t run out of any food. We don’t have a dining room so we transformed the studio by moving all the musical equipment along the wall and setting up my photo shooting table to accommodate 8 people. Wyatt was in charge of flipping the records, cooking the sage gravy, and whipping up the cornbread casserole while I took charge of the pumpkin risotto (vegetarian main), green bean casserole, stuffing, rolls, and appetizers.

    Before we go any further, I wanted to show you this awesome behind the scenes Vegetarian ‘Ventures video that my good friend Anna Powell Teeter made me for the about page. If you are a regular then you’ve probably read my writing and seen my photography but I am hoping this video will give you an even closer connection to how it all comes together behind the curtains. Check the video out below or hop on over the to ‘About Page’ to view it there!
