Almond & Cocoa Macaroons!

Toasty, warm & sweet goodness!

Another fab recipe from
Matthew Kenny's
Everyday Raw.

Coconut Macaroons!

I divided the batter and added fresh cocoa to the second half to make Cocoa Macaroons too.

OH-the-yum-yum-yumminess of these little treats! My son LOVES them and my husband was very suprised. He said, "That tastes like a macaroon should taste.

Here's what they looked like just before going into the hydrator.

I scooped them with a teaspoon, rather than a tablespoon. I wanted them to be bite sized. This, of course, also cut down on the drying time 2 days to one day. DELISH!

Raw Mango Veggie Wraps & Raw Jicama Salad

For Christmas I got an EXCALIBUR dehydrator! And a few new RAW food (un)Cookbooks! So I used the dehydrator today for the first time and it was SO EASY!!!

See the ORANGE paper-like wrap above? Well, that's not paper, my raw friend, it's MANGO CILANTRO wraps made by ME! I got the recipe out of EVERYDAY RAW by Matthew Kenny. It was so easy and so delish!

I also made another one of his recipes - Raw Potato Salad (it's really Jicama Salad though....but tastes so similar to a really good potato salad that it truly hits the spot).

The boys gobbled it up, had seconds and left the table full and satisfied. VERY yummy!

I would highly recommend this book - at least so far everything from it has been fantastic!

Kidnapped by Cake!

I spent most of the holidays resisting the sugar! It wasn't hard at all, mostly because I don't like the way I feel after eating too much sugar. But, here comes the New Year, all crisp and clean, filled with fantastic possibilities....and a few weeks in and I find myself suddenly kidnapped by CAKE!

Delicious CAKE! Sweet, sugary CAKE!! Fabulous, yummy, oh-so-good, homemade CAKE!!! (Well, the cake was a mix, but I made buttercream frosting from scratch!)

Oh me! I have been kidnapped by CAKE and have suffered a terrible case of the sugar shakes - kept me awake most of last night!

So, on's back to as much RAW NUTRITION as I can stand! I'm ready for it! I'm primed! The big green bowl is FULL of raw fruits! The fridge is full of raw veggies. The blender is gleaming on the counter....

They patiently await my return to their wholesome goodness!
