The Date: Friday, September 30, 2011
The Delivery: Three pumpkin pies from Wholly Wholesome, Vegan Pregnancy Survival Guide by Sayward Rebhal, and Allison’s Gourmet new Salted Confections Gift Set with salted caramels and peanut brittle
Staff Pick: Wholly Wholesome's Dairy-Free Pumpkin Pies
The DL: Tis the season to start adding the best thing ever—pumpkin—to everything we eat, starting with these pies. For all the downsides associated with losing the sunshine and bounty of fresh produce available in the summer come fall, pumpkin truly is a worthy exchange. That, and the snuggly fall sweaters, like those found in Editorial Assistant Hilary Pollack’s recent piece on compassionate fashion. If you’re one of those crazy people who doesn’t enjoy a sipping a hot pumpkin soy latte with a crisp breeze blowing the fallen leaves into a whirlwind of color, consider a vacation instead—VegNews is heading to balmy Mexico in the nick of time, this November. There are only a few spots left, so get your ticket before it’s too late. Happy Friday!
