Finding Inspiration in Warmth

Roost Board

When planning the same holiday year after year, how do you keep your celebration fresh and interesting while maintaining a sense of tradition? We asked our favorite bloggers and food people to share what’s inspiring their Thanksgiving planning this year. From ancestor’s recipes and falling leaves, to beautiful piles of ingredients and thoughtful home decor, there was no shortage of imagination. See what motivates some of the most creative minds we know, and then start planning your annual feast.

When it comes to the fall, particularly Thanksgiving, I can only dwell upon a single word: warmth. Everything about the season exudes warmth, whether it be the earthy colors of autumn leaves, the comfort of family joined together or the late-fall harvest ingredients that make up such satisfying meals. The images above are a reflection of all that I cherish about the Thanksgiving season. Fresh herbs, warm bread, ripe seckle pears, hearty butternut squash soup and a carrot cake sure to trump any pumpkin pie — all of which are gluten-, grain- and processed sugar-free!

I love coming together as a family and sharing recipes new and old. For my family, we are particularly excited to share healthier takes on traditional dishes. Bread made with cashews or cakes made with almond flour are perfect for those who follow a gluten-free diet or just wish for a healthier option.

I am grateful for all of the wonderful dishes that make up the Thanksgiving feast, but it is the fellowship with my family and friends over a scrumptious meal that makes that one fine day something to be truly thankful for.
