Me and my mom discussed our Christmas menu on the phone the other day. She was happy to say that she had discovered a great gingerbread dough that happened to be vegan. I got excited too and instantly wanted to try it out! Last year I also made a vegan gingerbread icing and didn't post a recipe. Not this year! The recipe is here. It's ridiculously easy, foolproof and delicious. You only need two ingredients - powdered sugar and lemon juice.

Red foods are the best! I could never say no to this big bowl of luscious pasta. This time I made the vegan Bolognese sauce with almonds. I just crushed the almonds and mixed them into a juicy and garlicky tomato sauce. It came out so delicious! Crushed almonds make the tomato sauce pleasantly mild and filling. They also give a nice and slightly grainy texture. I mixed in some gluten-free tagliatelle and a fabulous dinner was born! The tagliatelle, by the way, was almost identical to a regular wheat pasta. I will tell you more in a bit!

My mom sent me a beautiful homegrown pumpkin. It had such a delicate and sweet flesh, that first I ate it raw. Then I roasted it with other veggies and made a delightful pumpkin soup. And now it's time for a sweet treat. So if you are in need for a quick and light yet satisfying Thanksgiving dessert, this is it. It has a little hint of lemon and cinnamon and the mixture is perfectly fluffy. Super easy to make too, I promise! I would really like to know what kind of delicious vegan meals you have planned for this Thanksgiving!

How's your November so far? Here in South-Estonia, we have endless snow coming down. There's little daylight, so if I want to take photos of my recipes, I have to be done before 2pm. But there's also many good things about this time of the year. Cozy indoor activities for example.
Since I'm going to Nepal in March, I've been reading a couple of good books about this gorgeous country. In addition to the books, I've been playing Civilization 6 (it's beautiful and great, but I still like the previous Civ more). We've also watched some really good shows like The Last Man on Earth (love the sick humor), Narcos (based on the almost unbelievable true events about Pablo Escobar) and also some old classics like The Walking Dead, Family Guy and so on. I also watched a couple of episodes of Sarah Jessica Parker's Divorce, but this kind of dry humor isn't for me. Maybe I'll give it a second chance.

I've wanted to make this post for a very long time. Especially since many of my readers have asked me what kind of blender do I use and what's the difference between a blender and a food processor. The following is based completely on my own experiences and I hope that it has some useful tips for some of you.
