Petite Lemon Blossom Cupcakes

Cake & Pies, Members Only

For the love of all things adorable and tiny! These cupcakes made me smile every step of the way. The pan, the itty bitty liners, the little cupcake batter balls, and the frosting! We can't forget the frosting. I was piping and dancing around the kitchen to one of my new Pandora playlists; Fly Me to the Moon Radio. All the songs this list has been playing makes me glide all over the kitchen. So what if it took me three times as long to make them, I was having fun!

I say it all the time, but I love being presented with challenges like this. It brings a welcomed complexity to my raw culinary experiences and causes me to expand my knowledge in fun and tasty ways.

Cinnamon Date Hand Pies

Medjool Dates – “King of Dates”

Ingredient Directory, Members Only, Where Our Food Comes From

Today I want to share about the famous large, soft, moist, Medjool date/palm tree. I call them famous because Medjool dates are one of the top fruits used in the raw culinary world for their health benefits, natural sweetness and binding qualities in recipes.  Did you know that Medjool dates are a FRESH FRUIT? Most people think of dates as a dried fruit, but they are actually harvested from the date palm, cleaned, sorted and packaged right away. There’s no processing and they’re never physically or chemically dried. So where do they come from? How do they grow? Let's find out!

How to Encourage Loved Ones to Eat Healthy

#2 - Successfully Transitioning Your Diet, Members Only

I feel so blessed to have a husband who supports eating healthy.  I will never forget something he said to me early on in our relationship... "I don't care if we wear second-hand clothing to save money, but we will always aim to purchase organic foods."  We have held true to this for over ten years. BUT I realize and understand that a lot of people struggle with getting the whole family on board when adapting a whole food diet, cooked and/or raw.

Apricot Banana Coconut Crackers

! Recipes to EDIT, Crackers, Members Only

Crackers... they are a staple in our household. The minute they disappear the requests starts pouring in for more! I am not sure if you are aware of this but did you know that a lot of raw crackers freeze beautifully?! This recipe, right here, right now, the very one that I am sharing with you is one of them. This cracker is super firm and crunchy (a true sign of a good cracker), they are slightly sweet and leave a scrumptious after taste.

#1 – Ice Cream Machine – Why and What I Recommend

Ice Cream - tools of the trade & knowhow (5 lessons), Members Only

I don't know a person that doesn't enjoy ice cream. Oddly enough, I consumed more ice cream while living in Alaska then I ever did living in warmer climates. What's up with that?  During my heavy ice cream eating days, I never dreamed of making homemade ice cream... that didn't happen until I started learning about the raw, whole food lifestyle.
