Ina's Easy Appetizers

How does Ina Garten entertain her guests? She kicks meaty-cheese gangly bits to the curb and serves up a healthy dose of vegan snacks.
They're easy, light and pair perfectly with drinks! Have you ever loved her more?
Protein. Carbs. Greens. She is pretty perfect. Thanks to Scripps, Food Network and the Culinary Goddess that is Ina Garten for this brilliant "Back to Basics, Ask Ina" segment for the holidays.

Rachael's Pumpkin Pasta

Not only is canned pumpkin creamy, it creates a sauce reminiscent of those fluorescent orange macaroni & cheese powder packets?!
Pumpkin, where have you been all our lives.
(I love how Rachael Ray talks about the whole wheat penne having protein. It's true, there's protein just about everywhere. Let the cows keep theirs, amirite.)
A huge thank you to Food Network, Scripps & Rachael Ray for all the glorious work they put into 30 Minute Meals.

This is the best bar.
If you like CARAMEL, chocolate, oh calcium, iron, protein and folate too? nbd. They're all here. I'd buy this guy anyway, but I'll take them healthy things too. Ya LUNA!

p.s. Look at its bottom. Look. Covered. In. Chocolate.

Rachael & Avril's Cookies

The method for this cookie reminds me of Rice Krispie Squares.
Who needs marshmallow? Nobody. Who wants chocolate? ERRYBODY.
Can we talk about how great these are in terms of being allergy aware? If you're lactose intolerant, or have an allergy to eggs? VERY. Very great.
Thank you to the Rachael Ray Show for lettin Avril in the kitchen. We love.

Lemon Meringue Cookie Pie

These Snack Packs are accidentally vegan lemon meringue pie bliss.
Then I discovered these no-name, cheap as eff, accidentally vegan coconut shortbread cookies.
Then I dipped.
This is Lemon Meringue Pie in your mouth, guys.
Hi Dunkaroos Kangaroo! Take note. You're welcome.

Dave's Moroccan Stew

You may be like me and think you know how to make chickpea stew, but the way he pronounces paprika and uses a potato masher at the end will make you realize you have no $&#'n clue.
Also. Seriously. Where did Dave Lieberman go and how can we get him back?!
Thank you to Scripps for this beautifully classic clip. An affordable, vegan one-pot weeknight dinner, not bad huh!
