Green smoothies are my new favorite grab-and-go breakfast. My blender has been getting a serious workout over the last several months as both Robert and I have been hitting the smoothie train pretty hard. We started making them a lot back in the summer, but honestly it’s been slow-going for me to find my groove with them. I’m not a huge fan of bananas so I get sick of smoothies with them pretty quickly; I have to be in the mood for the ones with peanut butter, and I get stuck in a rut of making the same few recipes over and over again.

I pin a lot of recipes. I get irrationally sad and frustrated sometimes because I know I could never make all of them. These “Wish List” posts are a way for me to highlight some of the amazing recipes I would like to make, with each one focusing on a specific ingredient or type of food, etc. If you make something from here, please let me know! I will live vicariously through you.
Some of you may be sick of pumpkin, but Thanksgiving isn’t even over yet, so please excuse me for this.
I used to steer clear of pumpkin things, because all I ever really had it in was pumpkin pie. Well the thing is – I don’t really like pumpkin pie. Surprising, right? I know, I’m weird. Once I started getting really interested in cooking and following food blogs, my eyes were opened. Food bloggers are crazy! They’ll throw pumpkin in anything. I’m convinced that food bloggers look at the year in food seasons instead of traditional seasons. It’s not fall or autumn, people – it’s PUMPKIN SEASON. But I’m totally okay with that. I feel like the food blog world really outdid themselves this year with pumpkin, so I went a little crazy with my pinning as well.
