Check out the countdown so far:

On the 11th Day of Christmas, FitCakes gave to me 11 Kid-Friendly Recipes!

There are just TEN days until Christmas.  Does that not blow your mind?  

I think I just heard an explosion - I'll take that as a yes.

From now until New Years, the days are sure to be filled with lots of parties, family/friends over for dinner, and neighborhood Iron-Chef competitions.  Right?  

Alright, the neighborhood Iron-Chef competitions aren't a thing.  Yet.  Still working on that... let me know if you're in the area, we'll totally make this happen.

Still, there is going to be - maybe there already is - more leftover food taking over the fridge than you imagined possible.  I always feel like somehow it multiplies on its own... I mean, I couldn't really have cooked all that in the last 24 hours, could I?  I'm sure at some point I would have realized there are only two people living in my house...

Parsnip & Cornbread Stuffing

Parsnip & Cornbread Stuffing

I cannot lie.  
I've presented you with the recipe for this tastiful, vegan cornbread already.  I've even given you this very recipe in phenomenal gluten-free form.
Still, as I was making these recipes, I couldn't help but think how amazing it would be to combine the cornbread with the stuffing.  
You should scarcely be able to blame me for this.  The lightly sweet cornbread makes practically, like, a musical symphony with the roasted parsnips and carrots.  I mean, if you could translate taste to music.  Because you can't get much better harmony than this.

Roasted Root Veggie Herbed Stuffing (gf)

Roasted Root Veggie Herbed Stuffing (gf)

I'm having one of those moments right now, where I want caffeine... more caffeine... but I know better than to give in.
One of those times where I've had enough, but somehow I'm still tired, and somehow I still think caffeine is the answer.  Unfortunately, that would be the opposite of the answer - if I want this vicious cycle to end, that is.
You have one rough night of sleep, overcaffeinate the next day, and you're toast for the rest of the week.  Or maybe that's just me and my low tolerance?
Anyway someone help me out, here.  Poke me or something.  Get me a giant green tea with soy.  Wait, scratch that - I just said no caffeine right?
You know what, I can get through this.  It's almost Thanksgiving week, and for me this means traveling to Pittsburgh to see my husband's family.  Which means vacation.  Which, of course, means lots of sleep.  This is very exciting.
