Hot Blood Orange Apple Cider

I sit here thinking to myself, “Is saying ‘hot blood’ in a recipe title appealing?

I sure you, this recipe is delicious AND it is blood-free. Ha!

I love hot mulled apple cider, and it definitely makes its way into my regular sipping rotation throughout the autumn and winter. Frankly, I look forward to my local farmers’ market every Saturday in the colder weather, because I can always get a nice hot cup of it from the Samascott Orchards while perusing their items. You can smell it a block away, I swear!

Funny, because this recipe for Yoga By Candace was almost going to be glühwein, but, as a former resident of Germany, she told me she couldn’t stand it. Quite the opposite, I LOVE glühwein. Ha! So I might have to make my own recipe for this blog at some point.

Until then, please visit YBC for my latest recipe on her site, Hot Blood Orange Apple Cider. The spices, the warmth, and the slight citrus kick will win you over on any cold morning. Trust. ✌️

Classic Gazpacho with Avocado & Mango

Oh. HELLO.

What’ s up, my bebes?

If you’ve been following my Instagram ( @seeksatiation ), you know that I’m not dead. Conversely, I’m quite alive and kickin’! I’ve been taking a blogging break, and it’s been quite lovely. Since I work that typical Monday through Friday 9 to 5 grind, my recipe development takes place on the weekends; some weekends, though, I’d love to relax. I’ve been allowing myself to do that, and it’s been lovely! I’ve been reading THIS book and THAT book. I’ve been going to the gym. (Hell, I’ve lost 10 pounds and can now lift 30 pounds, which is a damn lot for my little chicken arms. Ha!) I’ve watched “Glow“. (I LOVE Marc Maron & Alison Brie!) I’ve been doing my usual food writing for Candace’s site. I’ve been attending fun events by Palate Connect. I’ve gone to a few Yankees games, which…they’ve all lost. Am I bad luck? Perhaps…perhaps…

So, yes! I’ve been having a nice few weekends to myself!

Coming in August, I’m hoping to launch back into the blog; this fall, I’m hoping to give it a sexy little makeover as well!

In the meantime, check out the newest recipe I did for Yoga By Candace: Classic Gazpacho with Avocados & Mango. I’m tellin’ ya, avocado in gazpacho is wonderful, but it’s the mango that truly brings this recipe to the next level. Its sweetness counters the acidity of the tomatoes beautifully.

Turkey, Kale, & Delicata Squash Bowl

Seriously, I am beyond confused as to how quickly 2016 has flown by! It’s already been a week and a half since Thanksgiving, so it’s only 20 days until Christmas, 19 until the start of Hanukkah, the new year will be upon us soon…

*pumps brakes*

Okay, I’ll try to slow down a little bit!

I’m pleased to announce that my second recipe on Yoga By Candace has been published today! This Turkey, Kale, & Delicata Squash Bowl is absolutely to die for. If you are a die-hard Thanksgiving fan, you’ll love the ground turkey. It melds well with the cruciferousness of the kale and the naturally sweet flavor and surprisingly creamy texture of the delicata squash. It tastes like a holiday meal without overwhelming your stomach. It’s truly the best of both worlds.

Head on over to Yoga By Candace to gank this excellent recipe!
