Calhoun Bend Mill Peach Cobbler Mix

Long ago, I received my great grandmother's recipe for peach cobbler. Still, to this day, I have never found a cobbler as good as hers. But I think I may have found a substitute for instances when I want that cozy, comfort food but don't want to scratch bake (which is often, lemme tell ya).

A few weeks ago we got in the Calhoun Bend Mill Peach Cobbler Mix. You add milk, butter and peaches to the mix, put it in a pan and you're set! Juicy, crispy and gooey all in one bite! We made it for our "Dessert's Galore" day and it was a hit. Wonderfully paired piping hot with a side of Alden's Vanilla Ice Cream!

Vegan Wednesday! Thanksgiving Casserole!

Over the month of November, I will be posting awesome vegan recipes for your cruelty-free Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving Casserole

2 cups cooked brown rice (or substitute lentils)
1/2 cup cashews or walnuts, chopped
2 slices of whole wheat bread, chopped into small cubes
1 cup vegetable broth
1/2 cup soy milk
2 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 rib celery, diced small
1 small onion, finely chopped
3 tablespoon olive oil
herbs to taste: sage, marjoram, thyme, rosemary, pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray a 8- or 9-inch square casserole dish with cooking spray.
While rice is cooking, saute celery and onion in the olive oil.
Mix well all ingredients in a large bowl.
Spread into casserole dish, and bake for 45 minutes.
Tastes even better topped with vegan gravy!
Serves: 8
Preparation time: 30 min
This is a great recipe to play around with. Add your own touches, make your own gravy, or whip up some Road's End vegan gravy! Add or delete spices, use extra celery or walnuts, etc. Make this your own go-to Thanksgiving dish. It's bound to be a hit with meat eaters too, so bring it to family get togethers!
