You may want to give your meatloaves a permanent makeover once you try this tomato basil turkey meatloaf recipe! With the basil and tomato, this meatloaf has a slightly Mediterranean taste to it, but it definitely works well as a Thanksgiving main too.

Meatloaves are essentially fancier versions of meatballs with less effort – if you like the recipe, you could use exactly the same ingredients to make a meatball pasta for example.

However, I think we can all agree that it wouldn’t be a very traditional dish to add to a festive dinner table!

Who said you needed to go to Starbucks when you crave a pumpkin spice latte? A home made pumpkin spice latte is so much better for so many reasons.

Did you know that Starbucks didn’t even add real pumpkins into their pumpkin spice lattes until 2014? Other than that, there are a ton of other unhealthy and unnecessary ingredients in the coffee shop’s drink.

Luckily, Melissa from Vegan Huggs has a tasty vegan pumpkin spice latte recipe, so that you can enjoy a guilt-free fall treat at home too!
