Potatoes are without question, the most delicious vegetable on the plant! Beyond yummieness, potatoes are extremely versatile and ridiculously affordable.

I’m going to teach you how to make a perfect potato dish for fall entertaining in less than thirty minutes. My Truffled Potato Galette recipe is light crispy and so easy to make. It’s essential to have a mandolin slicer for this recipe in order to get uniform potato slices, it will also save you tons of time. I’ve added all things truffle to highlight the earthy flavor of these golden potatoes. I like to add truffle favors whenever possible to impress my guests with ease. Knock em dead with this quick, healthy, and delicious truffled potato galette! Happy fall y’all

Living in Los Angeles I experience an endless summer, it’s only an issue during fall, my favorite season. This year I wanted to get out of the city and experience a little fall weather with my babe. I decided on big bear and started browsing for places to stay. I stumbled upon The Noon lodge on idyllic Mallard Bay, walking distance to Big Bear Village. The Noon lodge consists of multiple rustic cabins, communial outdoor fire places, a bocce court, and views of big bear lake. We selected a perfectly decorated two bedroom A frame cabin for our fall getaway. Our cabin was so cozy, romantic, and definitely Pinterest worthy. We promptly sparked the fireplace, heated up some cider in the convenient kitchen, and crafted some hot toddy’s. We spent our perfect weekend relaxing by the fire, drinking cocktails, and enjoying the chill in the air. We will definitely be back to The Noon Lodge, I’d love to see it with snow on the ground. If you’re looking for a relaxing rustic getaway, The Noon Lodge at Mallard Bay is the perfect choice. Check them out on Instagram @noon_collection to get all the fall inspo

When I lived in my native Portland, I took their abundance of cozy coffee shops for granted. Fast forward to four years later, living in Los Angeles, where a utilitarian metal bench is about as cozy as it gets. I recently visited Paper or Plastik cafe on Pico, where I was instantly enchanted by its cozy ambiance. The warm exposed brick, glowing natural light, and friendly staff made me feel like I was right back in the rose city. I ordered an espresso fizz, a lovely zesty blend of espresso, orange, and tonic water. I made my way through the menu, selecting the green goddess salad, roasted cauliflower special, and sunomono avocado toast. I thoroughly enjoyed all of my selections but the standout was the sunomono avocado toast with its briny pickled radishes and salty furikake topping. I ended my veggie forward meal with three pastries, a girl can never have just one pastry. I was compelled to order multiple desserts because there were so many gluten free, organic, and dairy free options.I indulged on a slice of the beautiful chocolate unicorn cake,a huckleberry doughnut and a strawberry tea cake. I left Paper or Plastik with a full belly and a warm heart, I will definitely be back soon.

It’s officially fall, my favorite season of the year. I love the cooler temperatures, fall flavors, and full access to my sweater wardrobe. My boyfriend is a huge fall fan as well, mainly because fall is football season. For those couples who love fall for different reasons, fall football snacks can be the great equalizer. I try to eat very healthy, most football snacks leave a lot to be desired in the health and nutrition department. I wanted to develop a tasty football snack that would satisfy my boyfriends snack palate while still being healthy. I utilized Harvest Snaps yummy yet nutritious snap pea crisps as the base for my recipe. I love Harvest Snaps snap pea crisps because they give a great chip like crunch with fifty percent less fat than potato chips! I added roasted almonds, garlic, and garbanzo beans for a rich nutty addition to this savory snack mix. I finished this football friendly mix with yellow raisins for a crave-able sweetness and some fresh parsley to lighten the dish. Try out my savory snack mix at your next game day party, health nuts and football nuts will make it disappear. Go Notre Dame

Savory Snack Mix

1 can of garbanzo beans
1 teaspoon olive oil
garlic salt and pepper to taste
1/3 cup almonds
