IMG_0547 I'm loving all the festive Fall recipes floating around the internet, magazines, and cooking shows these days. Pumpkin is an especially great food that can be incorporated into any meal of the day. Today I've featured it in this breakfast porridge that keeps in the fridge for 4 days making it an ea...

IMG_0460 Fall is in the air and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. It's time for apples, pears, cinnamon, pumpkin, and nutmeg! I've paired a raw chocolate brownie with a pumpkin pie frosting and a drizzle of cinnamon chocolate sauce. They're really good!! IMG_0436Pumpkin Pie Brownies Makes 16 Brownies 1 cup al...

IMG_0385 It's time for a savoury recipe. One of my favourite "go-to" raw meals is veggie nori rolls. They're easy to make and really satisfying. I like to make a batch of pate and keep it on hand in the fridge for a few days in order to whip up a roll whenever I want. Add any veggies of your choic...

IMG_0332 Today is a cookie day! I went on a 6 hour mountain hike with friends this weekend and along the way I asked them for tasty recipe ideas. Someone suggested a coconut cookie… and naturally a splash of chocolate has to be added, so this yummy snack was born. The chocolate is totally optional but takes...

IMG_0241 The other day it was hot. A perfect "suntan on the patio" kind of day. I whipped up this thick, frosty drink and shared it with my roommate. We were happy girls. It's delicious and filling. I layered it with cacao nibs. IMG_0246Chocolate Banana Chia Frosty 1 cup nut milk 2 1/2 tablespoons chia se...

IMG_0164 Last weekend I picked more wild blackberries. We're incredibly lucky to have an endless supply in the area. Unfortunately much of the patch I was in contained over ripe berries which meant they were very soft and some of them tasted mouldy, so I had to be extremely choosey. By next week I'll be abl...

IMG_0119 Today's recipe is full of highly nutritious ingredients and makes an excellent snack anytime you need a hit of energy. The squares are great on their own but they're taken to a new level when covered in a soft fudgey chocolate coating. Mmm! Since the chocolate softens quickly, they need to be kept ...

IMG_0013 Happy Monday! Today I'm sharing an ultra rich dessert recipe. This is the one to pull out when you have guests or a special occasion. I've incorporated wild jungle peanut butter into a luscious raw chocolate cheesecake and topped it with a peanut butter drizzle and crunchy peanuts. This is best ser...

IMG_0605 Happy Monday! It's a real scorcher here and has been so for weeks - sun, sun, and more sun with high temperatures. You know what this means? Lots of refreshing drinks, light food, and frosty/frozen/chilled desserts! I haven't made a fruit crumble in ages and when I came across fresh Okanagan aprico...

IMG_0417 The summer months conjure up images of the beach, lounging in the sun, picking berries - and of course eating refreshing , cooling foods like fruit, smoothies, ice cream, popsicles, and salads. Ice cream cake fits perfectly into that category too, and so I made one the other day featuring the wild ...

IMG_0343 I love all the different berries that summer has to offer. The raspberries are growing in full force out here these days and the other day I bought a ton of them to freeze for as long as they'll last! Wanting something tangy and packed with the berries, I came up with this refreshing smoothie ...

IMG_0235 I'm a little cherry crazy these days. Near my area, in the Okanagan, we grow incredible cherries this time of year and they become a regular part of my diet. Besides daily cherry smoothies for breakfast, they make a great snack, and find their way into desserts. Of course they pair well with chocol...

IMG_0158 I had a brownie craving the other day… but I wanted a twist on a regular chocolate brownie, and so I began digging through my box of goodies to get some inspiration. Mulberries and coconut called to me. So did the big container of medjool dates. My kitchen efforts paid off. A chewy chocolate browni...

IMG_0065 Summer is the perfect season to enjoy desserts that are light, tangy, and refreshing while still being decadent. While lazing on the beach with my girl friends the other day, we conjured up a variation of today's dessert. It was supposed to be in tart form with a fresh kiwi garnish, but after forge...

IMG_0198 What's more refreshing than a cold scoop of ice cream on a hot summers day? With fresh mint waiting to be used the other day I thought a mint based ice cream would be nice along with a hit of matcha (green tea powder). Naturally I couldn't resist adding some chocolate, so I used the chocolate fudge...

IMG_0152 Summer is the perfect time for light, creamy desserts. Of course ice creams, sorbets, milkshakes, and popsicles fit into that category but I also really love a refreshing parfait that bursts with flavour. Fresh young coconuts were sold at a festival I went to recently and I was inspired to turn the...

IMG_0113 Raise your hand if you love peanut butter! And who doesn't love the combination of peanut butter, caramel and chocolate?? This classic combo is one of my favourites and today's recipe includes all three ingredients. In fact, this week I'll be sharing two new recipes that feature wild jungle peanut ...

DSC_0996 When I had a hankering for some cheesecake last week, I had to put my thinking cap on to decide exactly what kind to make. Since I've recently made a white chocolate matcha cheesecake, and a pear berry swirl cheesecake, I decided to go for something chocolate. I added a hint of orange and a sprinkl...

Happy Monday! I hope you've had a great weekend. Its been a rainy but enjoyable one here on the West Coast for me. I've got an easy new recipe to kick off the week. These balls make a great portable snack and are easily whipped together in a food processor. I call them "caramel" balls beca...
