Creamy French Lentils with Mushrooms and Kale | Elderberry Syrup* | Blueberry Hazelnut Oat Bars

I don’t know about you guys, but I am in full-on baking and cooking mode now that winter is here. Cooking for friendsgiving this weekend definitely has a lot to do with igniting my cooking and baking flame, but I just find that in the winter I like to spend a lot more time in the kitchen. It also took me a while to start to get comfortable with my new appliances in the new flat, even though I have already been living here for quite some time. I am, however, now really into the flow of my kitchen and am excited to get my hands dirty and try out some new recipes before the year’s end. After all, I have been on a roll ever since making this carrot bread (3 times by now) and this absolutely delicious butternut pecan sweet potato casserole. Therefore, I thought that I would bring you guys 3 incredible recipes that can be combined perfectly for a delicious and homely winter meal.

*contains honey. Substitute agave nectar if you are looking for a very strict vegan recipe.
