Thumbnail image for Carrot Noodles with “Peanut” Sauce

Peanut sauce with noodles is one of my favorite dishes. Once I make it, I can’t stop eating it … which isn’t necessarily a good thing. And unfortunately, the traditional way to make this dish is with canned coconut milk, peanut butter and rice noodles. I wanted a fresher, more nutritious version. Time to rawify […]

Go figure, I finally jump onto the Irish Moss train, which has been touted as a super food in the raw food community for years, only to wake up to a weekly email in my in-box from Dr. Andrew Weil warning about the dangers of carrageenan. What does this have to do with Irish Moss? […]

When I see Meyer lemons at the market, I always get excited. Why? I think it has something to do with the name. It is romantic. It’s not a lemon, it is a MEYER lemon. Kind of like how “Key Lime” sounds more romantic than “lime”. Thought to be a cross between a lemon and […]

Talk about a recipe morphing! I have been wanting to make a macaroon with a ganache center for a while now. But I like my macaroons fresh out of the dehydrator. They get a wonderful crunchy exterior and a soft interior. If you want a ganache center, that presents a problem. Here is a peek at my “interesting” creative […]

This contest has ended. I couldn’t help myself. I saw a video on how the KitchenAid blender beat both the Vitamix and the Blendtec blenders in a test. Considering it is about 1/4 to 1/3rd the price, I just had to get one and put it through it’s paces. So for the next few days, […]

  Oh how I struggled with the title of this post. It isn’t really mock “tuna”. It is a wonderful fruit and veggie salad, with the addition of a nut paté and a wonderful raw, vegan mayo. But that title is a little long. What I did do was base the salad/nut paté on what […]

I have been fixated on omega 3′s (more on that in a minute). I have also been fixated on creating a new dessert bar recipe (I think you can understand that one). Two fixations came together and these tasty raw walnut cacao bars were born. First, lets talk omega 3′s. Why the fixation, you ask? […]

Last weekend, I threw together an impromptu dinner some dear friends. The menu was mostly raw food. A wonderful corn and avocado salsa topped black bean burgers that were nested in butter lettuce. I wanted to make a quick savory watermelon salad but who knew it would end up the star of the meal!  When I create […]

Last week I posted this recipe for raw Rosemary Honey “Cheese” with Figs. Hiding in the background are the raw Rosemary Almond crackers that go with it.

When fresh figs make an appearance at the market, my heart skips a beat. I love everything about them. Their beautiful shape and the deep colors remind me of a renaissance painting. The soft, pink  fruit is delicately sweet. The texture starts with firm flesh that yields to the juicy interior intermingled with crunchy seeds. Truly a chef’s dream, […]

They are full of anthocyans, antioxidants that fight cancer and help reduce heart disease. Cherries have anti-inflamitory properties that fight arthritis and also […]
