Roasted carrots with cilantro-pumpkin seed salsa

These roasted carrots are amazing for Thanksgiving; they work with a traditional menu or a vegan and plant-powered one. I love Thanksgiving!

Baked apple and cinnamon doughnuts

This recipe for baked apple and cinnamon doughnuts is the perfect recipe for fall. I have never been a huge fan of fried food; I just do not like it.

But I do remember my dad’s aunt, when I was super young, making doughnuts the traditional way, with yeast and a huge pot full with bubbling oil. These doughnuts had a lot of texture and flavor.
