Oh my gosh…I must admit, it is good to be back. I haven’t posted to Rawmazing for over a month. It’s the longest I have gone since starting the site over 6 years ago! And what a month it has been. We moved, I finished my Professional Plant Based Certification through Rouxbe (more about that […]

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. The dogs have been sent to “Auntie Jan’s” house for the day and the poor cats are locked in the courtyard so they will […]

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 […]

If you don’t have a dehydrator, it might be time to get one because this raw food recipe for “sliders” is worth buying one for! Before I started eating a diet of mostly raw, vegan food, one of my favorite treats used to be sliders. You know, the mini-burgers that you just pop in your […]

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 […]

Once again, I found myself with an abundance of sprouted wheat berries on my hands. I made the Onion Flat Bread and  Cinnamon Pomegranate Bread.

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, […]

I have a sweet tooth. It can be the bane of my existence! When my daughters were younger, I used to bake sheets and sheets of cookies and bars. Great for the taste buds, horrible for the waistline and diet. I love to experiment with recipes and made at least 20 different chocolate chip cookie […]

I spent a good part of last summer eating 100% raw food. It was amazing. I had unbelievable energy, mental clarity, and all of my aches and pains went away. I was having a great time. I got a dehydrator, a vita-mix, and about 20 cookbooks. I was amazed at how good the food was […]
