Even if you're on a dairy-free, gluten-free, or paleo diet--it doesn't mean you can't enjoy a great Thanksgiving meal.

Just in time for the holidays, Laurel Gallucci from Sweet Laurel Bakery stopped by my YouTube channel to teach us how to make a delicious Chard and Butternut Squash Tart with Zucchini lattice. It may look complicated but trust me, it's so simple.
