Moosewood--I have heard amazing things about that book from tons and tons of people. Keep us posted on how you like it.

And congrats on the muffin tin showing up! gotta love the jumbo muffies that i know you're going to crank out with that bad boy!

Have a great week Kelsey!

Obviously I need to hit up Value Village more often, because hello, mint condition cheap cookbooks? It's not just for hallowe'en costumes anymore!

Love that you ordered a giant muffin tin too. Perfect choice.

i had a bowl of Vietnamese beef noodle soup today :-P

Kat said... [reply]

I love your blog, even though I am German. *cough*
Ummmm....the last Autumish thing I ate? It was pumpkinsoup at my birthday party (September 17th). Made by a good friend and it tasted really good. :D

Ps. Kinda jealous of your stevia soda.

Those protein bars look awesome - love that ingredients list!! And those are gonna be some biiiig muffins - can't wait to see them :)
I'm loving the autumn leaves - though I'm sort of bummed they're already half on the ground!
Last autumn-ish food was the stuffed butternut squash last night. Yum!

Amy B @ Second City Randomness said... [reply]

A jumbo muffin tin! That's so fantastic! Or possibly a little trouble? If you have issues with the baking increasing too much, you know where to send the extras... lol

The last "autumn" food I ate was probably the sweet potato and pecan pancakes I had yesterday for brunch. It was the debut of the Fall Menu at the breakfast spot we chose- delish!

A giveaway? How exciting!
The last autumn-y food I ate has to be those squash fries I had last night, you can even see a picture on my blog
Enjoy your muffin tin! I can't wait to see what kind of crazy jumbo delicious muffins you make next ;D

All of my foods have been "autumn"'ish lately!!! I'm eating more of my kabocha squash up today! Yum! I'm also enjoying pumpkin oats and forcing the rest down because I am fullll!!

I love your muffin tin - I also love that you're having a giveaway!

alex (spoonful of sugar free) said... [reply]

Yay for you! A jumbo muffin pan :)

I love fall, but I will be in Florida this year :( Which means no pretty leaves changing colors :( :(

Alex @ I Eat Asphalt said... [reply]

I just bought a ton of fall squash and a pumpkin this weekend. I'm trying to ease myself into saying goodbye to summer.

CaSaundraLeigh said... [reply]

I've never seen those protein bars--they sound good. And I love Stevia..unfortunately, it's SO expensive around here though!

Samantha said... [reply]

HAHAH Your jumbo pan!! Finally you got one! Love the picture of it in bed! You're so cute. I'm really excited for Fall. Even more excited that it's one step closer to Christmas! :D

Heather (Where's the Beach) said... [reply]

Love the muffin pans ;-) I made both soup and chili this weekend in celebration of fall. Though, I must admit I don't like cold one bit! I have one of the Moosewood cookbooks, but I've never made anything out of it.

I am waiting for the perfect time to get a Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks. It is my favorite drink but I try not to drink my calories. I cannot wait for this moment.

Anonymous said... [reply]

i wish i could get "into" oolong...it's just a bit too earthy for me ;) hahahaha the muffin tin in the bed, you would! i bet you are thrilled! last fall food i had was yesterday when i scored a lb can of libby's pumpkin! i'm trying to make it last all week but it will prob be gone in 4 days ha

Anonymous said... [reply]

I love how you made the muffin pan comfy lol.. but not too comfy ;)

Wow! And waht a great find with the cook book! I often overlook the book section at the thriftstore.. I should definitely check it out next time I go. As for the last fall thing I ate? Some pumpkin ginger cookies I baked the other day :)

Megan D said... [reply]

Hahaha I love how comfortable you made your muffin tin! And those protein bars look yummy. Love zevia too! My recent fall-ish eat was a bowl of pmupkin oatmeal topped with peanut butter. I can tell I'll be having that a lottt this season!!

Lena said... [reply]

Lol, I love the pic of the muffin tin in your bed!

The last autumn-ish food I ate was pumpkin yogurt with maple syrup :)

Karin said... [reply]

Haha that muffin tin in your bed picture cracked me up. I have a very bizzare obsession with super tiny or super big muffin tins. It seems like the normal ones are so boring!

Tori said... [reply]

I can't believe pumpkin didn't make the list! Weirdo! Just kidding!! :) I love the jumbo muffin pan! It's so you! The regular sized ones should be counted as mini muffins now Haha!

Stevia is addicting!!
<3 Tori

Moosewood is king. It's like my other bible. I love that book.

Lori said... [reply]

Your posts are always so witty and funny. I love it! Gettin' comfy with the muffin tin, huh? lol

I have never heard of or seen those Francines Finest protein bars before. I would really like to try those! Any suggestions on where I can get them..? I'll do some online searching. :)

The last autumn-ish food I ate was a baked kabocha... it's my love. I'll get comfy with a kabocha any day! ;)

Missy said... [reply]

I've been eating a lot of warmed apples with cinnamon...apple season is the best.
And roast squash...though Calabaza is on sale so mostly that variety.

Lisa said... [reply]

I am obsessed with Stevia soda! Omg its so good and def the best invention ever! =)

erica said... [reply]

Love your fall favorites and I need that muffin tin!


Kristen (swanky dietitian) said... [reply]

I am too excited about pumpkin for fall! I had pumpkin in my yogurt today and it was delicious! It doesn't feel like fall in Vegas yet though. It needs to cool down!

Ellen@FirednFabulous said... [reply]

Haha, hooray for jumbo muffin tins! The autumn-ish food? Hmmm...does a cranberry muffin form Starbucks count??

Justine said... [reply]

I have been eating figs like they're going out of style- I love them! I am hoping to get some banana bread made pretty soon though.

(Thank you for the sweet comment the other day! You are such a doll!)


I can't wait for the give away!

Asha Raval said... [reply]

I LOVE Zevia!! For me its more of a summer favorite though...but its SOO hot in LA right now that I have really been enjoying them, especially the root beer flavor :) YAY.

I have to say another fall favorite are soups and making soups. And pumpkin pie soups are a great and healthy dessert.

Awesome post!

Angela (the diet book junkie) said... [reply]

where do you get all your vegan goodness, girl?? are there that many vegans on the island?

haha...i'm not even sure what autumn-is foods are anymore. (our seasons don't change as drastic over here.) er, i think blueberries were in season a few months ago.... :)

Jess @ MTL Veggie said... [reply]

I can only imagine what awesome muffin goodness you'll create with those tins :)
The last Autumn-ish food I had was probably the Beet Risotto I made last week. But that will change after tonight!

Ashlei said... [reply]

Yay you got the cookbook!!! What are you going to make first? :) Go with the cauliflower pie. Oh my gosh it's so so good!

I've been loving sweet potatoes lately. Topped with almond butter and granola. New favorite snack :)

Kath (Eating for Living) said... [reply]

Thank you for your kind comments! It looks like we have a lot in common! :)

Whee, you have a jumbo muffin form now! I'm excited to see the creations you'll make with that! (I've never made muffins, but I want to try, and I'll look around your blog for a good recipe!

My last autumn-ish food was a pumpkin and kale stir-fry (fur lunch today), with lots of cinnamom! I could eat that every day!

We Are Not Martha said... [reply]

I love the Moosewood cookbooks! I can't believe you found it for such a fabulous price!! I love everything autumn, especially sipping on pumpkin spice coffee and hot cider :)


Heidi - Apples Under My Bed said... [reply]

I am so jealous of your jumbo muffin tin! I'm searing for one myself. Muffins are so "fall" to me - or "Autumn" for us Aussies ;) I have made lots lately even though it is supposed to be Spring here. Autumn to me also means wholesome soups with sourdough bread.

Chelsea said... [reply]

I'm so jealous of that great deal on the Moosewood Cookbook! I recently bought one of their cookbooks for almost $40. Yikes!

That tin looks like it's going to make HUGE muffins. Can't wait to see your creations with it. :D

The last fall-ish food I ate is probably the warm grilled vegetable salad that I'm eating right now.

Anonymous said... [reply]

hot pumpkin buckwheat with raisins, vegan protein powder, and coconut butter on top :)
and o.m.g. jumbo muffin tins? im so jealous!!!

Laury@The Fitness Dish said... [reply]

I have never heard of the moosewood cook book? looks awesome though! I seriously need your muffin secret, how do they rise SO high for you??? the last fall thing I ate were the pumpkin muffins I made Sunday (recipe tomorrow, and Kelsey reference along with it)


Lisa (bakebikeblog) said... [reply]

LOVE LOVE LOVE that new muffin tin - and I cant wait to see all the goodies that you make in it!

Candice @ ChiaSeedMe said... [reply]

Yay for a new muffin tin! I'm sure you'll put that to goo use:)

Today I had a pumpkin smoothie for breakfast, and it totally made me feel all warm inside. I love autumn!!

Lee said... [reply]

my fall food today was sliced honey maple turkey and white cheese on white bread and dr.pepper. Such tones on autumn.!

Anonymous said... [reply]

Haha.. I don't think any of us are truly surprised by your CSN present. I can't wait to see some gigantic muffins!

The last autumn-ish food I ate would probably have to be a sweet potato.

Anonymous said... [reply]

Thanks for that protein bar link! I have never heard of/seen those!!

And muffin tins are probably one of my most favorite things ever.

Happy Tuesday!

Yuki said... [reply]

I can't express enough how much I love francine's finest bars!! sooo yummy!!

hmm.. i just ate kabocha squash and I'm thinking that that's pretty autumn-ish ;)

Monet said... [reply]

I ate a pumpkin muffin just a few minutes ago...now I wish I had your muffin tins so I could make mine larger! And I love Moosewood cookbooks too...they are one of my healthy favorites, and I have quite a few sitting on my shelf.

Jolene - EverydayFoodie said... [reply]

I love autumn foods. I really liked the apple pie oats that I had the other day.

Sweet muffin tin!!! That will come in handy!

Madeline - Greens and Jeans said... [reply]

I love LOVE that Moosewood cookbook! I'm sure you will too. I finally found Libby's pumpkin in my grocery store, so my meals are looking much more "fall like!"

Stefanie Mockler said... [reply]

Awesome jumbo muffin tin! What goodies are you going to make with it? Recent fall eats have been pumpkin, pumpkin, squash, pumpkin, pumpkin! :)

Anonymous said... [reply]

Thanks for much for leaving me such an adorable comment! I frequently stop by your blog without commenting :(, but no worries I'm always all caught up! And of course always hoping that you're doing wonderfully and enjoying every last muffin morsel! You are amazing :)

Jessie said... [reply]

I have that cookbook! I just cooked from it this past weekend, actually - aren't the Moosewood cookbooks great? :)

I can't think of anyone who deserves a jumbo muffin tin more than you! Nice to see you're making it feel right at home ;) Have a great day!

Erica said... [reply]

hahhahahah I love the muffin tin in bed. That is like the perfect CSN stores purchase for you. Can't wait to see what you make with it. Last fallish food I ate- squash!

Sunshine said... [reply]

The noodle kugel from that cookbook is my family's go-to recipe. We modify it to make it *a lot* sweeter, but it's crazy good as is.

As far as the last autumn-ish food I ate: I made some stuff acorn squash on Saturday that was de-freaking-licious!

Joanne said... [reply]

Anything with pumpkin makes me feel "fall-ish".
The protein bars look great. Low fat, all natural and 18 g of protein. Super bar!
I tried that soda for the first time 2 weeks ago. It was the root beer flavor. Wow! it was good.
GREAT deal on that Moosewoods cookbook. Ever been to the restaurant? We went there last summer. It was wonderful! My hubby was a bit scared since he is a meat eater but soon calmed down once he tasted his food.

I've been eating at least two apples a day. I love them - they quench my thirst, and have been so delicious lately. I have two packed in my purse right now.
