We pinned, we cooked, we ate. After a fun-filled weekend in the kitchen, w’re ready to present you with our ultimate Thanksgiving menu. All gluten free, of course. Here to break it down for you is Cocomama’s very own Maggie Rulli with her take on our recent Friendsgiving.
Huddle in, it’s story time, my friends. It all stared online… as all great love stories of the 2000’s do. Five women who lived worlds apart decided to create a pinterest board so that their love for all things food could transcend geography. Mrs. Boston would wake to find Ms. DC had pinned a delectable recipe for overnight oatmeal. And much to her delight, Ms. NYC discovered Mrs. World Traveler had pinned a recipe for authentic Pad Thai that she had just eaten off the street in Thailand. Soon, new friends were invited and the foodie love spread throughout the Interwebs and across the county.
It was only a matter of time before the online culinary sparks started a real fire in the kitchen. So in November of 2012, 6 women bussed, drove and flew to a pre-Thanksgiving cookathon.
Welcome to the Interwebs Supper Club Summit 1.0. Here are the rules:
1) All athletic apparel all the time. (Gotta love that stretch in the yoga pants by plate refill number 3)
2) The Pinboard is the answer – all recipes must be from Pinterest and pinned to the interwebs board.
3) All recipes must be Vegan, GF, Soy-free, dairy free… and 100% tasty. Oh, and the theme is Thanksgiving. Because we role like that.
4) Dance breaks are mandatory.
5) There is no such thing as making too many desserts.
6) You DO NOT talk about the Interwebs supper club summit.
7) Cook like a Champion.
After much debate, feast your eyes on the Interwebs Supper Club Summit 1.0 menu below (click dish name to link to the recipe). All recipes are also on Cocomama’s Thanksgiving Pinterest board. Let the eating begin.
