Of course my waffle is on a thrifted plate…

Because I love you-  You get a two for one today ;p recipes aaaand style…

Most years I help with my Church’s Thanksgiving potluck- so I started out my morning with these fantastic gluten free pumpkin waffles and then made a Rosemary-Sage and Pineapple-Cream pie (both gluten free) to accompany my potato- veggie medley to the potluck 🙂

Gluten Free Pumpkin Waffles:

  • 4 cups gluten free flour: For this I blend a combination of Oats, Brown Rice and Quinoa in my Vitamin to create fresh flour. Then I add a touch of flax seed meal and some cornmeal.  I have found Oat flout to be one of my favorites for gluten free baking. You can create your own combinations.
  • 1 Egg (you can leave this out if you are vegan)
  • 1 can pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 3-4 cups almond milk
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • Blend til smooth and use for waffles of pancakes

I’m going to go ahead and admit that when I’m baking at home I rarely measure anything-  so don’t take these measurements too literally.  You basically want to mix everything and then keep adding almond milk until you get a nice, smooth waffle mix consistency.

For the Pies I used Bob’d Red Mill Gluten free pie crust (soooo good!) Fillings are as follows:


  • Thinly slice 4-5 honey crisp apples
  • 1/2 can frozen apple juice concentrate
  • 1/4 cup stevia for baking
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground rosemary (you can use a coffee grinder of vitamin to grind into a fine powder)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sage
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • blend and fill- bake at 350  till golden (approx 40 minutes)

Pineapple Cream:

  • Chop 1 full pineapple into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup frozen apple juice concentrate
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup stevia for baking
  • 1/4 cup french vanilla soy or almond creamer
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • Mix, fill and bake at 350 till golden.


Now- onto the day’s thriftastic style!

Thrifted pillows… of course

I actually bought these two main pieces on the same day while thrifting and thought- they were a perfect outfit. Since yesterday was beautifully sunny and 72 degrees-  I decided that I could get away with  such light bright colors for November (I had originally thought I’d have to hold out until spring.)

I’ve been a real color-coordination/theme weirdo since I was little so I took the whole Thanksgiving/Fall situation real far with- gold plated leaf earnings, fall colored hand dyed leaf scarf, art deco bird and leaf blouse and autumn colored floral and leaf patterned purse and retro jacket to match. Sometimes just leaning into the whole eccentric/over-the-top thing- jut works so well 🙂

The blouse was an extra large- so I took it in about 3 inches on each side starting at the sleeves and going straight through all the way to the bottom.
