Did I really say that? Chocolate espresso hazelnut frozen torte? Yes, I did. And you are going to love this one. It is pretty easy to put together if you make the hazelnut butter in advance. And since there are avocados in the filling in stead of coconut oil and cashews, you are going to […]

I am sitting in my kitchen, surrounded by furniture (that belongs in the family room) as carpet layers, window washers and air conditioning technicians swarm my house like it’s a hive.

I’m in a holiday mood. It feels so welcome and refreshing because I haven’t felt this way in a while. For the last two years, I have been in the process of getting ready to move or had recently moved and I was simply too exhausted to put my normal holiday effort forth. Everything felt […]

It’s that time of year! Temperatures are dropping and blustery winds are blowing. I don’t have the same kind of fall and winter in the bay area as I did in Minnesota, but I do get a fall and winter. It’s just different.  You wake to 48 degrees and by 3 in the afternoon it […]

It’s 51 degrees with a chance of snow showers in Minneapolis as I sit looking out at pure blue sky. It is 83 degrees where I am at. In my mind, a perfect summer day. But it is fall, and I am once again missing the fall I am used to. I still haven’t gotten […]

I remember getting grounded for playing with my food. Seriously. I was crushing crackers and making little designs in my soup. It sent my dad right over the edge. I don’t think he would be so upset anymore. Actually, I think he would be downright pleased. I believe that eating raw food should not be […]

Life got exciting today. I made my raw food recipe for raw cashew cheese and it turned out great! I have been preparing raw food for some time now but the cheese, the ones that you  have to make and set-up for a day, seemed a little daunting. Well, as my friend Michael often says, […]
