Cozy socks, warm clothes, snuggles, hugs, family, loved ones, cheerful people, a giving spirit, these are a few things I love this time of year. I hope you all had a Merry Christmas, are enjoying your holidays and were able to spend time or catch up with family and loved ones. We caught up with our families and it was such a nice heart warming treat. We enjoyed a relaxed day with lots of good food. A homemade baguette, a hearty lentil loaf infused with gravy vegetables with a crust made of rice....
...scalloped potatoes with a vegan cheesy topping
and a Inca quinoa salad.
I surprised my husband with our vegan feast. It was so much fun to have a variety of delicious plant-based foods gracing our plates and a home filled with love.
It's hard to believe this year is already coming to a swift end, the countdown is on and 2016 is inching closer and closer. The world in many places is in turmoil yet has pockets of peace. May the peace and love arise as we go into this next year, unknowing what will come. I do know one thing, sharing home-cooking with your loved ones is a simple way to show your love and bring people together happily no matter what's going on. It's kind of magical that way.
These potatoes are so hard to resist you may find yourself asking for another spoonful. Creamy, "cheesy" and so wonderful they nearly melt in your mouth.
Happy Holidays with love from my heart and kitchen to
