Earl Grey Cider Cocktails + scenes from the autumn jersey shore!

Earl Grey Cider Cocktails | @withfoodandlove

For the past 10 months, I’ve been living in a perpetual state of uncertainty. Since the day my husband told me he was changing careers and going back to school {which ultimately means us leaving Philadelphia} my head has been spinning in a constant loop of equal parts excitement, anxiety and unknowns. The loop, pretty much it sounds like this…

Moving is fun. Moving is exciting! But…when will we move? Where will we move? When will we find out when we’re leaving? And when that comes, will I want to go? Will I be happy? Will I be scared? How will my relationship{s} change? Will my husband be working more? Will I see my husband less? Will I see my family less? Will I be lonely?

A n n n n d . . . repeat.

I am trying to be patient. I am trying to stay flexible. I’m trying to keep positive, radiate good vibes and manifest our destiny of good health + good fortune. I remind myself daily that good things come to those who wait. And, to those who work hard. Two things my husband and I have gotten a lot of practice with in 2014. Nonetheless, patience and flexibility, don’t come so easy for me. It’s just not the way I’m wired.

Pumpkin Chia Quinoa Porridge + Pumpkin Spiced Earl Grey Latte

Fall is here my friends and is are so much to be excited about! The crisp cool air, warm hearty soups, hot tea + cappuccino, picking apples + pumpkins, road-trips to see the changing leaves, this list goes on and on . . . and I really LOVE it all!

While I was at Whole Foods the other day I got completely side tracked, face first right into the pumpkin bin. The nostalgia in me really wanted to wait until I went apple and pumpkin to get my first one of the season, but these glorious orange local beauts were staring me down and I could not resist. If you have never roasted your own pumpkin then you must right away, canned pumpkin doesn’t really compare to fresh pumpkin. It is super easy, plus roasting your own pumpkin seeds are da bomb! So go ahead, open one up and get to roasting!

Check out this pumpkin roasting tutorial from Tasty Yummies. Once you have roasted and pureed your pumpkin you can keep that sealed in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for about 5 days. Just scoop out those orange vitamins and mix them into practically anything; you might be surprised just how great pumpkin nests with other flavors. I’m a quinoa + earl grey tea junkie and I’ve dreamt up two {vegan + gluten free} pumpkin recipes that will satisfy any autumn sweet tooth without breaking the sugar bank.
