It’s been an interesting month here on the Great South Bay. We had unseasonably high temperatures and then the major storm of the decade. Out in the blogosphere there has also been a lot of activity that I’ll tell you about.
With the election just past, I think you should be relieved that it is over no matter who won because we won’t have to listen to those nasty commercials anymore! Celebrate by making this wonderful election cake from Nourished Kitchen.
With the holiday season coming and pumpkins abound, I think you should make this Grain-Free Pumpkin Coffee-Cake from Unmistakable Food. It looks very good. Mommypotamus also has a delicious looking Pumpkin Spice Custard with Marrow Infusion. Wow! That is an awesome idea!
With the GMO controversy around Prop 37 still an issue, check out this post from Mama Natural about How to Avoid GMOs (for real).
At this time of year, one likes to look their best. If you have problems with your hair you should read this post from Whole Natural Life called How I Came To Love My Hair. It is really interesting and informative and uses all natural products!
At this time of year you might be invited to lots of holiday parties at restaurants. If you are at a restaurant, you should be concerned about healthy cooking oils, and should ask the waiter what oils they use in cooking. Unfortunately, they will probably not be using good saturated fats from pastured animals fro cooking, but you could do that at home and learn how to render lard. If you are traveling, there is a way to get real food away from home.
This time of the year many folks get stressed out and come down with a cold. Here is a good post about common cold remedies from Holistic Squid.
How has your month been?
