A few of my (current) favorite things:

Teeccino, Chocolate flavor. It’s like drinking a doughnut. A no-sugar added, herbal, liquid doughnut. I mean this in the best possible way. It also reminds me of General Foods International Coffee commercials…that’s the feeling I get drinking it–without actually imbibing crappy, Euro-fetishizing, chemically laden, processed junk. It’s marketed as a coffee substitute. I actually really just like it for what it is (especially since I drink coffee already).

Mung beans. About 15 minutes after I eat them, I get the most amazing feeling of well-being. I boil them, then separate them into 1/2 cup portions and freeze them. For lunch, I put one in a container with broccoli and a tablespoon of nut butter, then heat it, mix it up and salt it…and it’s SO GOOD. I buy them in bulk at Whole Foods; I found that they were really pricey, prepacked at Vitamin Cottage.

Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table cookbook. It’s such a great read! Greenspan is so generous when it comes to sharing a vignette about each recipe. I am so excited to make her roasted apples, and try her baked chicken with Armagnac…and so much more.

  1. Pumpkin patch. Sure, I can go get a bigger pumpkin at Mega Store down the street, but I like letting my kids roam a small, family-owned farm and then support them by buying a pumpkin. We just bought a slew of pumpkins to paint and then we plan to use them for pies and other delectable, edible delights! Hooray for pumpkins!

  2. Rain. Fall is rainy back home, but since moving to the desert, it’s dry and brown just like the rest of the year. Rain is definitely one of my favorite things.

  3. I recently saw mungbeans in our local co-op store. I couldn’t figure out what to do with them and forgot to ask Dr. Google. Thanks for reminding me to check them out.

  4. Um YUM. That Teeccino sounds fantastic. I’m always looking for a way to decrease my chocolate (and thus sugar) addiction. Right now I’m relying on the Metromint Chocolate Mint water, but this looks promising!
