Bangers & Mash Recipe

With St. Patrick's Day around the corner, we headed over to Doyle's Public House in Tacoma, WA to get inspired by an Irish themed lunch. Instead of the typical corned beef and cabbage, however, we tried bangers and mash - a traditional favorite of the British and Irish consisting of sausage and mashed potatoes.

Pumpkin Spice Cookies

It seems like everything is pumpkin-flavored this time of year; pumpkin lattes, pumpkin bread, pumpkin chips, pumpkin salsa - the list goes on and on. We decided to create a not-so-basic Pumpkin Spice Cookie recipe that is surprisingly free of dairy, nuts, soy and gluten (optional) but you would never know by its slightly crunchy outside and soft and chewy inside complete with a hint of cinnamon, spices and of course, pumpkin. Serve with a cup of tea or side of vanilla ice cream for a truly decadent dessert.
