Let’s face it: when you’re having a baby, people try to convince you that you need a whole heck of a lot of crap. Bouncy seats and matching sheet sets and changing tables etc. etc. I’m sort of a minimalist … Read More
I promised you cake, and cake you shall have. (But better quality, in-daylight photos? That would require not only foresight, but also restraint on my part.) I’m usually not the biggest cake person. I generally prefer brownies and PIE. And … Read More

I adore Thanksgiving. There’s food and family and it’s the start of the Christmas season. Christmas day always feels a little bittersweet to me because it’s the end of the wonderful season and in a week, you have to stop listening to Christmas music for another 11 months.
With Thanksgiving, the entire glory of Christmas, with the music and decorating and thinking of others and, most importantly, time to reflect on the Savior, is still ahead of you. And Thanksgiving food. I get asked all the time what I do for Thanksgiving since I’m a vegetarian, to which I reply, what do YOU do?
Really, basically everything except the turkey is vegetarian-friendly (and I absolutely refuse to do tofurky or any other mysterious meat substitutes. Just give me gobs of cheese and cream and roasted veggies, please). And most people I know when forced to choose between turkey and pie would choose the latter, anyway.
Though it’s hard to choose a true favorite, this one is definitely near the top. Infinitely better than that marshmallow-laden junk, I feel fairly confident in saying that if you make this once, it will never again leave your Thanksgiving table.
Happy unTurkey day!
Please forgive the terrible photo from nearly a decade ago
Sweet Potato Casserole
A creamy and fluffy sweet potato base topped with a crunchy and sweet pecan and brown sugar mixture, this is our favorite Thanksgiving staple!
