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...

I was a very big yogurt eater back in the day before I realized that eating dairy sends me into a stupor. My grandmother would make fresh yogurt almost daily. We'd eat it at breakfast with homemade granola and for supper with a "fruit cup". Fruit cup was my favorite supper. We lived in Mai...

Last week a hankering for a sweet came upon me. What I really desired was a cream-filled bonbon but alas, I had not the correct type of mold. I do have silicon cupcake molds so I decided to try those. As I was collecting the ingredients I decided to throw a brownie base onto my fantasy treat. I don'...

Usually when it comes to breakfast I go for a green juice. Sometimes for a green juice and raw chocolate. On the weekends though I often miss meals from weekends past so I often will make something a little fancier. Parfaits tend to be a favorite weekend breakfast. This past weekend I made the follo...

Most of the recipes I have shared up to this point have been raw. A few months back I did share a tasty recipe for sweet potatoes roasted with Coconut Creme. On occasion though many of us have reasons to cook something for loved ones or an event, even if we maintain a high-raw diet ourselves. A per...

For ages I have been obsessed with the combination of fresh red peppers and macadamia nuts. The first time I had this combination was in a dehydrated nut cheese from Pure Food & Wine. Since then I have made dips, dehydrated cheeses and crackers featuring these two ingredients. The other night a...
