Yes, I realize this is the second post involving aioli this week. It’s like when I discovered peanut sauce and went through a phase when I put it on everything. (Okay, that wasn’t a phase. I still put peanut sauce on everything. Hush.) And maybe you’re all, “Hey Kiersten, aioli is so 2002″ and maybe that’s true, but this is cashew aioli, so it’s different, okay? Just let me have my aioli moment.
Black Bean Burgers with Sriracha Aioli from Cooking Light // Homemade black bean burgers! That is worth getting excited about, right? But what makes these burgers even better is that they’re topped with sriracha aioli. YES!
Healthy Apple Cobbler Muffins from Two Healthy Kitchens // I love a good muffin in the AM. These are dense, apple-y, and they have a delicious crumb topping too. And the only thing better than a muffin is a muffin with crumb topping! (The flour sack towel in the photo is from my friend Milisa from Miss in the Kitchen–you can buy them here!)
Vegan Pumpkin Cheesecake Pops from Tasty Yummies // I made these without the sticks, so they’re really more accurately described as cheesecake truffles. Cheesecake bites? Well, whatever, they’re delicious! They’re made without refined sugar and with cashew cream instead of dairy. Want more cashew cream ideas? Meg put together a cashew cream recipe round-up on Potluck last week!
Jamaican Jerk Tempeh and Vegetables from One-Dish Vegan // I bought this cookbook because I’m a big fan of one-dish meals and this one didn’t disappoint. We had this over quinoa and had tons of leftovers, so we got lunch and dinner out out of it.
Creamy Mushroom Fettuccine from Cooking Light // I added more mushrooms to this recipe, hence the high mushroom-to-fettuccine ratio in this photo. I whipped this together in a snap, so it made a great busy weeknight meal.
Lentil Soup with Cauliflower and Cheese from Martha Stewart Living // Lentil soup with cauliflower? With broiled cheese on top? I want to eat this always. The weather is starting to finally get chilly here and this is the kind of meal I want to eat right now. Cold weather + hot soup = happy Kiersten.

You can catch me over on Momcomm this week where I’m sharing a guest post about my experience conducting a reader survey on my blog. If you’re a blogger and you’ve been thinking about doing a reader survey, this post will give you the lowdown on how I did it!
