Vegan Pumpkin Pie Success
Finally, I found an allergy friendly pumpkin pie recipe! And it tastes amazing! Good thing too, because I had friends be my guinea pigs and taste the pie even before I did.
It was a perfect end to my first NYC Thanksgiving. Parade, Pierogis, and Pie.

Adventures in Allergy Aware Cooking.
I am known for my pumpkin pie. Delicious, have secret ingredients, pumpkin pie. This fall, however, is the first fall I have to implement my strict food allergy diet, and let me just say that it is cramping my pie style. 
With no eggs, or milk, or wheat- pie is now a challenge to make. So, now starts my adventure to make the best damn allergy conscious pumpkin pie I can! And test number one wasn’t too bad. Good taste, but lacked the texture of an amazing pumpkin pie. I also baked the pie in its pumpkin! Cool in concept, but difficult in execution. 
This won’t be the last….

Took a jaunt to the countryside for the weekend, and had a chance to taste some of the most famous wines in the world!!! Wine lovers dream come true :)
I was a horrible person, however, beautiful countryside and I was too absorbed to take pictures! Next time :)

Hot wine by the “boating lake” made it even better. No pictures can give Versailles justice. Breathtaking.

Versailles, during a cold rainy day. Yes, a friendly person caught some GREAT shots during a rainy gust :)
It was the most beautiful, unbelievable place.

Paris has the perfect light all the time, I don’t know how she does it but its enchanting.

A magical place :)

Da Vinci, Ingres, Jacques Louis David, Rene and so much more!

Only two wings in the Louvre… And four and a half hours! Not enough time!!

The Louvre, then food in the park
