Everything Pumpkin

Fall.. It is the season for everything pumpkin, quick swap that fresh rosemary for pumpkin spice or forget the apple sauce, let’s use pumpkin puree aannnd you are done!

You can find anything pumpkin these days, from pumpkin lattes to pumpkin flat bread, how about pumpkin spice tacos?

These are some of the recipes I’ll try to make this season because let’s face it… you can’t get away from it nor you want to.

That image above is actually the best cheesecake I’ve had…you guessed, that’s Pumpkin Cheesecake With Pecan Crunch Topping, from the Post Punk Kitchen, you will think differently about cheesecake and it will never EVER be the same, yes it is a vegan cheesecake, don’t be afraid of tofu instead of creme cheese, this is a vegan, dairy free and gluten free dessert and it’s one of the best dessert you will ever have.

Weekend Notes: Simplicity

This weekend is as usual a bit busy with a soccer game and the usual cleaning/laundry/food shopping/birthday party/brunch. Lots of domestic and fun stuff. No, I am not paying much attention at those items on my to-do list, the domestic ones, I am much more excited about this Sunday 5k which I signed up with my 13 year old daughter; let’s face it, teens are strange creatures so if she has the slightest interest in being a part of this, you damn right I am signing up for it.

Hope you enjoy the weekend!

Green Animals Topiary Garden

Green Animals is the oldest and most northern topiary garden in the United States, it has more than 80 pieces of topiary throughout the gardens, including animals and birds and geometrical forms, it is truly a beautiful place to visit and I recommend to bring the whole family.

It seems quite possible that if you look close enough you could see a white rabbit rushing someplace.

“There is a place. Like no place on Earth. A land full of wonder, mystery, and danger! Some say to survive it: You need to be as mad as a hatter.”
