Best Foods For This Fall

The air is brisk and the smells of apple cider and chestnut rise through the air. Kids are back in school, waiting with desperate anticipation for the upcoming Thanksgiving feasts and Halloween treats. But when the family comes home craving pumpkin pie or cranberry sauce, what will you do in the meantime? You want to provide a flavorful fall meal but you have nothing in mind. Well, our food professionals at Lulu’s have compiled some of the best recipes to get you through this autumn eating well and staying cozy.

1. Crumbly Pumpkin Bread

 

Skip the deep-fried harvest festival foods, and harvest something a little sweeter: delicious and light Crumbly Pumpkin Bread. It’s a cakey treat that goes great with coffee and a warm fireplace. Out of all the pumpkin-based recipes out there, this one is definitely at the top of our list. (From Damn Delicious)

 

2. Candy Corn Cookie Bark

Candy Corn has been around for over 100 years, it’s a Halloween favorite but it’s familiar appearance have led many to get bored of this classic. Take down that dusty bag from last year and get ready to take your candy corn to the next level with Candy Corn Cookie Bark. Mix your cookie dough with candy corn, spread it out on a cookie sheet, and stick it in the oven. With a few simple steps, you’ll look like a fall food expert. (From Two Sisters)

3. Coconut Pumpkin Spice Latte

Here in Southern California, our Summer has receded into the brisk 70’s and we’ve pulled out our winter coats. People have begun to wait in anticipation for their favorite specialty fall coffees, but there’s no need to settle for leftovers from last year. The warm smells of cinnamon, coconut, and pumpkin can fill your home when you brew your own batch of Coconut Spice Latte. This is an economical option for the delicious and healthy taste of fall that you can brew all year. (From Halfbaked Harvest)

4. Pumpkin Nachos

Warm and cheesy Nachos are a great addition to the game, but when the leaves start falling and you need a snack while you’re passing out candy, Pumpkin Nachos are the way to go. Green Apples drizzled with caramel and topped with your favorite assortment of nuts and chocolate chips. In under 10 minutes, you can have a perfect fall snack for a group of any size.(From Musely)

5. S’mores Cups

We all have those perfect fall memories of sitting around a warm fire toasting delicious marshmallows with friends and family, but over the years this tradition can become tiresome and the high esteem once held for s’mores can decline. Bring excitement back to the campfire with S’mores cups, a whole new way to enjoy s’more in a hybrid cookie/cupcake fashion. Brighten up your campfire and wow your guests with a reinvented fall classic.                       (From The First Year Blog)

6. Moroccan Butternut Squash and Goat Cheese Soup

With Fall there is always a drop in temperatures, and while the leaves changing color is beautiful Cold Season is not. A go-to option when one is bedridden on a nippy fall evening is soup, and we’ve found a way to satisfy your craving without sacrificing the great flavors of Fall. It’s a simple blend of ingredients like butternut squash, spices, coconut milk, veggie broth, and goat cheese. Top with cashews or pomegranates and you’ll have a new favorite meal.
(From Halfbaked Harvest)

7. Halloween Candy Bark

Whether monsters are banging on your door for candy or you’re hosting a Halloween party, you want your treats to stand out. Skip the common candy bar and opt for Halloween Candy Bark. Start by melting chocolate on a baking sheet and topping with all your favorite bite-sized candies. Let it harden and you’ll have a spooky but sweet Halloween treat. (From Just a Taste)

Lulu’s Restaurant Best Camping Recipes

Summer is winding down and people all over are getting out into the woods before they get stuck behind a desk. Camping is great and after a long day of conquering rugged terrain with your friends there is nothing better than kicking back and enjoying the view. But then you eventually hear that rumbling sound.

If you end up not finding a gingerbread house, your untreated hunger might turn you just as wild as your surroundings. Nature is beautiful, but being hungry isn’t. That’s why the food professionals at Lulus have put together a list of some super easy camping recipes. With these simple meals you’ll be getting good food fast so you can get back to enjoying the view.

Ham, Egg, And Cheese Bread Bowls

Trying to find a place to wash dishes in the woods can be a hassle and even meal prep can cost you valuable adventure time. This is an easy recipe where you just hollow out the bread, seal the inside with ham, and then poor in egg and cheese. Once you wrap that up in foil you can lay it over the fire with a cook time of only a few minutes. (From Recipe Tin)

Fire Cooked Cinnamon Orange Rolls

Buy a tube of pre-made cinnamon rolls, hollow out half an orange peel, fill them in with the dough, and then place the oranges on a baking sheet over the fire. You’ll have delicious cinnamon roll tucked in an easily disposable orange bowl. Skip the dishes and entertain the kids with this easy camping trick. (From Truly Simple)

Omelets From A Bag

Using some gallon sized Zip-locs and some fire boiled water you can have some pre-made and easily prepared breakfast. Crack 2 eggs in each bag and fill with cheese, meats, greens, or whatever you want. Prep them before the trip and toss them in the cooler. Then simply heat up some water and let them cook for 10-15 minutes.

S’mores Sandwiches

This is a great way to enjoy s’mores without the sticky hands and goo covered clothes. Simply place some tortilla wrapped chocolate chips and marshmallow into aluminum covering, then lay them over the embers. Let them get a little toasty, carefully pull them out and let them cool, and then enjoy!

Pineapple S’mores Cake Sandwich

For a different way to enjoy s’mores you can get a piece of pineapple and a marshmallow sandwiched between two squares of pound cake. Toast over the flames and enjoy s’mores in a brand new way.

Campfire Eclairs

For another treat you can enjoy some classic french eclairs right at your campsite. Wrap some Pillsbury dough around a stick, roast until golden, and then let cool. Once hardened slide the bread off the stick, fill with pudding or whipped cream, and then top it off with some chocolate icing.

No matter where you are in the world, good food leads to good times. When you get back from your adventures visit Lulu’s Restaurant and enjoy any food you want in comfort minus bears. Visit our Menu and go enjoy Great Food!

Enjoy Delicious Vegetarian Meals With Lulu’s Catering!

Salads and sadness. That’s the common perception of Vegetarian meals. The average person is queasy around quinoa and wilts at the sight of kale. But despite this sometimes negative reputation, a vegetarian diet has been shown to keep weight down, prevent disease, and help you live a longer and more energetic life.

In a 12-year Oxford study published in the British Medical Journal, researchers found that vegetarians outlive meat eaters by many years. One vegetarian culture in Okinawa, Japan, residents have diets rich in vegetables, soy, and legumes; this diet has had huge benefits for the island’s population. While the average life expectancy in the United States is 78.8 years, it’s 84 years old in Japan – and five times as many people from Okinawa live to be 100 years as their peers in the rest of the country.

The long terms effects of Vegetarian diets have yielded some amazing results and more people are beginning to adopt this new lifestyle. With this movement on the rise many are asking themselves “Where can I get a vegetarian dish that provides both ultimate satisfaction and health?” Lulu’s has the perfect solution for those who struggle with “boring but healthy” meat-free diets. Stand up against bland food by viewing five of our absolute favorite vegetarian meals available at Lulus below!

1.Veggie Burrito
Sautéed mushrooms, spinach, green chilies, onion, tomato, eggs and cheese in a flour tortilla.

2.Tomato Basil Linguine

3. Greek Salad
Feta, Greek olives, tomatoes, red onions, bell peppers, balsamic vinaigrette.

4. Hand Battered Zucchini
Crispy zucchini slices, Parmesan, house dipping sauce.

5. Fresh Fruit Plate

We believe vegetarian food can be an absolute joy if done correctly, and that’s just what we’ve done here at Lulu’s. Come and enjoy these delicious vegetarian meals available at Lulu’s Restaurant in Van Nuys. Click Here to explore the menu and the many delicious options we have available!

5 Reasons Why Your Next Event Should Be Catered

Preparation for any successful event, be it business or pleasure, will always involve an enormous amount of time and dedication from those involved. With so much to plan for, how can you be assured that your time is being spent effectively? Oftentimes the most time consuming and multifaceted aspect of a successful event is the food. Planning portions, buying ingredients, and slaving away in the kitchen can be too time consuming and expensive for every event and cheaper, less time intensive options like buying a dozen pizzas can be perceived by your audience as an afterthought.

So just what is the ideal way to organize food for your next event? Catered events are ideal because they offer the best of both worlds, high quality food that doesn’t take you all day to prepare. Below, we have outlined the top 5 reasons why your next event should be catered.

1. Catering provides the audience with a sense of professionalism and prestige to your event. It shows that as an event organizer, you took the time to go out of your way to provide your audience with a great meal. These extra steps can go a long way in a business setting.

2. With a restaurant like Lulu’s catering your event, you won’t need to spend time with mundane tasks such as buying all the groceries, preparing the food, or setting up the buffet or serving station. This allows you to place your focus on the more important aspects of your event such as entertaining the guests.

3. If this is your first event or an event that you will not have regularly, catering can often be the cheaper option. Providing tables and silverware for a large event can quickly drive up costs on items that likely won’t see prolonged use. Catering companies will have these supplies on hand and will likely be included in the costs.

4. Experienced event planners will know that after each event, you must undergo monumental cleaning efforts to return your space to its previous level of cleanliness. With a catered event you can spend more time entertaining your guests than doing the dishes.

5. Finally, with all the added stressors removed, catered events simply allow you to have more fun at your own events. Whether it’s networking for business or celebrating a child’s high school graduation, you deserve to enjoy your own events.
