Vegan-Salted Chocolates

I promise you cant have just one. Believe me, I have tried. At least 100 times. So imagine how many I’ve put away! With a succulent, chewy, caramel filling, and genuine, raw, fermented and organically grown cacao butter and cacao mass, (also known as cacao paste) – its a health food. So I dont feel…

Vegan Cashew Ice Cream

I have been making this dessert for years. Its one of our family favorites. Previously, I had been using canned coconut cream – which although delicious and an outmatched dairy substitute – brings along with it gums, fillers and BPA. Not a fan of any of those! I figured “its dessert, dont sweat the small…

Power Butter

This blog post is no revolutionary recipe that will change the world and take it by storm. Today I am more interested in presenting you with an idea. Namely: upgrading. The practice of raising something to a higher standard. Thats the method I want to see implemented in your kitchen! Its such a useful tool….

Raw-AIP Strawberry Rhubarb Tart

My, my, my, it is a delight making pretty food. But lets be honest, it can look beautiful and taste awful – and that is absolutely the most cruel trickery of all. Thankfully – that is not the case here. I actually got the comment from my husband that “its beautiful, and tastes even better…

Black Bean Chocolate Cake

Nostalgia. There are those who enjoy chocolate – and there are those who are wrong. I always chose chocolate. Whenever it was my birthday and my sweet, sweet mother asked me, “steffanie, what kind of cake would you like?” I requested chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. I have apparently not grown up enough to grow…

Super-Berry Bars

These bars. Man – they saved me when I peaked into the fridge to see what dessert I could serve my boys one afternoon, and realized there wasn’t one! What I didn’t realize was the entire sheet of Raw, Vegan, Black bean brownies I had made two days before was gone…. One thing is for…

Blueberry Coconut Breakfast Cake

Cake. Its whats for breakfast. Once a week we have an event at our house called “baking day.” This is the day Mom, (me) gets over zealous and enthusiastically prepares and creates as many dishes possible -before my brains explode- and throw them all in the oven all at the same time. Inspiration happens in…

Sourdough Oat Cake

I love oats. I also love cake. Whats not to love about oat cake? Especially for a quick breaky with a steaming cup of coffee – I am in heaven. This recipe is so easy, and comes out beautifully rustic, with a chewy crust and gooey inside. Its dense, filling and absolutely delightful. Oats are…

Country Crumble – Allergen Friendly

  My oldest turned five this month, I cannot believe it! We live on nearly 200 acres, and on some of those acres there are some impressive and ancient apple orchards. A few of these aged and beautiful trees are of the summer variety. We dont have to wait for fall to bake up a…
