There’s something about the changing seasons that makes me want to create new memories with a delicious beverage in hand — whether I’m spending a quiet night in, hosting family and friends or attending an autumn gathering. Today I’m thrilled to share 5 Cozy Fall Cocktail, Sangria & Mulled Wine Recipes that celebrate my favourite season in libation form with warm, crisp, comforting flavours and a mosaic of seasonal ingredients! This spirited collection of delicious fall COCKTAILS, SANGRIAS and MULLED WINES are not only staples in my repertoire, but they’re also your favourites as well — having been featured across various high profile media outlets and signature cocktails at reader wedding receptions!
As always, my alcoholic beverages are simple, seasonal, free of dairy, gluten and refined sugar and and packed full of fresh, healthier ingredients — because I truly believe in balance in every area of life. Each of these carefully crafted cocktails and sangria recipes feature my favourite fall ingredients including fig, rosemary, pomegranate, cranberry, vanilla, apples, clementines, berries and honey spiced with cloves, star anise and nutmeg — expertly combined with classic autumn spirits of Prosecco, apple Brandy, Japanese whisky, Chambord, Crème de Violette, Pinot Noir and Zinfandel. Whether you’re entertaining and looking for large batch fall cocktails, sangrias or mulled wines you can prep in advance, enjoying an elevated autumn date night in front of a roaring fire, or simply in the mood to shake yourself up a fabulous cocktail in your coziest loungewear, I have just the recipe! From my home bar to yours, I hope this roundup of tested-till-perfect, better-for-you fall cocktail and sangria recipes inspires you to get creative with your sips this season!
Who else is totally pumpkin obsessed? With the height of pumpkin season upon us, I’m excited to bring you a roundup of 5 Plant Based Pumpkin Recipes to Try This Fall! Each October here at JustineCelina, my pumpkin recipes begin trending — so I thought it was the perfect time to round them all up in one post for easy browsing reference (complete with a Pinterest friendly graphic!). This year our Country Garden produced a whopping 55 pumpkins of all shapes, sizes and varieties — and you can bet I’ve been cooking, baking and recipe making with the abundance. If you love pumpkin as much as I do and you’re looking for some fresh, delicious, plant based recipe ideas, you’ve come to the right place! Whether you’re making pumpkin purée from scratch (I have a post explaining exactly how I do it!), using a quality canned variety or roasting it up to use in savoury applications — I’ve got you covered!
With Canadian Thanksgiving and Halloween just around the corner, this versatile gourd abounds at every patch, local grocer and farmers market as we eagerly bring them into our homes. If you’ve got some extra pumpkin to use up or are simply in search of healthy, easy and nourishing recipes, this roundup is for you! Inside, you’ll find all sorts of pumpkin-laden goodness in the form of Pumpkin Spice Steel Cut Oat Breakfast Bowls, Plant Based Pumpkin Pie Energy Bites, Gluten Free Pumpkin Turmeric Muffins, Gluten Free Mapled Pumpkin Chai Bread and a Spicy Pumpkin Persimmon Smoothie. Of course, I’m always working on something new (I may or may not have 12 pumpkin recipes currently in development!) — so this post will be updated periodically as new content publishes. As always, each recipe featured is free of dairy, gluten and refined sugar for those of us with allergies and intolerances (along with ingredient substitution suggestions if you don’t have these dietary requirements). I invite you to slip into a cozy sweater, preheat your oven and join me for some quintessentially October pumpkin recipe inspiration!
Autumn is definitely approaching here on the Alberta prairies! The leaves are changing, the temperatures are dropping and I find myself craving all things warm, cozy and comforting. This transitional time of year is also my favourite for gorgeous, seasonal produce — and I’ve spent the past couple of weeks pouring over my RECIPE archives, adding our most loved fall recipes to the menu! If you follow along with my socials you’ve likely seen these delicious seasonal dishes trickle into my feeds, but I wanted to round up my 20+ Favourite Plant Based Fall Recipes for you here at JustineCelina for easy reference. It’s been so much fun taking a walk down memory lane and digging up my old recipes (and old, pre-professional photos!) to appreciate just how far I’ve come on my blogging and recipe development journey over the past 6 and a half years! And what a delicious ride it’s been.
While I’m always working on something new, I’ve also published so many incredible recipes over the years. Today I’ve scoured my virtual recipe box to share the very best of the season with you — I’ve rounded up my all-time-favourite fall recipes across culinary categories, from breakfast through happy hour! As always, my recipes are simple, seasonal, free of dairy, gluten and refined sugar and and packed full of fresh, nourishing ingredients — perfect to make after a weekend grocery run or trip to the farmer’s market! These whole food dishes are also budget friendly, with many yielding large batches (perfect for families, fall meal prep or batch cooking and freezing!). If you’re looking for some fresh, veggie-centric culinary inspiration as we transition into fall, you’ve come to the right place. From my kitchen to yours, I hope this roundup of tested-till-perfect, plant based fall eats (and drinks!) inspires you enjoy autumn in all its abundance!
