Apple Chai Pancakes, Davida Lederle

These Apple Chai Pancakes combine two of my favorite fall flavors: apples and chai! They’re hearty, filling and a fun twist on classic pancakes. Easily made gluten-free if desired!

Sweet Potato Turkey Chili, Davida Lederle

Lightened-up chili using ground turkey and sweet potato! This Sweet Potato Turkey Chili can be made in one-pot and will feed you all fall and winter long for dinner or lunches alike. I would say that in general, I follow the seasons with my eating habits… I crave salads in the summer and cozier, heartier meals in the winter. Since living in San Francisco that all kind of goes out the window. We have warm days year round and cool days in the middle of summer. It’s strange but I love it.  So when it comes to chili, I honestly eat this year round. I know that’s not the case for most of you so I practiced some self-control and waited until an acceptable month to share this delicious recipe.  Turkey Chili Ingredients: Ground turkey Vegetables – sweet potato, onion, bell peppers, jalapeno and garlic Canned items – diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, black beans and kidney beans Seasonings and spices – chili powder, ground cumin, dried oregano, sea salt and black pepper RELATED: The Best Ever Cornbread Recipe How to Make Sweet Potato Turkey Chili STEP 1: Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat, add turkey and cook
