Cheddah Cheese-Its (Dairy and Gluten Free)

I hope you are all enjoying the summer. It's a HOT HOT HOT one here on the East Coast!

I just got back from visiting my grandkiddies in SC and had a blast! So hard to leave. Back home, I was craving a crunchy snack. I got it..perfect!

There are many variations in spices to change it up, but here's my fav....

Terrific Truffles - Energizing Treats



The holidays are drawing near and I wanted to surprise my family with nourishing treats. We'll also be on the road and now have some energizing snacks for us to nosh on. For sweet toothers, you may add more sweetener than what I suggested below. These are more spicy than sweet.

Who says we have to eat junk on the holiday? Spend time with your loved ones and warm up with these deep chocolate/spicy delights.

Green Mint Coffee Choco Chip Smoothie

I love the flavor of coffee, chocolate and mint, so why not put them all together in a smoothie? Oh yeah! Delightful! I happen to have fresh mint growing all over my garden, so why not use it? Just a touch of mint adds a remarkable, light tone to this fabulous breakfast!

Horseradish 'n Dill Crackers/Bread

As part of my recent exploration into "my roots," I prepared fresh Horseradish. It was deeply earthy and delicious. From that recipe, I made a Horseradish Hummus/Dipwhich was lighter in texture, but also fabulous. I needed some crunchy crackers... So what else? Horseradish  'n Dill Crackers, of course! The horseradish flavor turned out rather mild  while the dill seems to permeate the crackers. I love dill, so it works for me, and I can spread either horseradish or the hummus on them. If you're not a fan of dill, replace it with another herb. Walnut crackers are great! Walnuts give a richness, extra crunch, and a splendid nutty tone. This recipe may also be prepared as a bread.

Papaya-Banana Swirl Ice Cream

OHhhhhhhhhh HEAVENLY GOODNESS! A friend of mine blessed me with her old Champion Juicer. Just prior to giving it to me, it was accidentally dropped (and survived), but needed a few replacement parts that had cracked. I managed to find a really good deal on some of the parts, including a BLANK PLATE (for under $3.00) at Amazon.

I had NO idea what I was missing!!!! Such creamy deliciousness

Creamy Blackberry Salad Dressing

When you are craving a salad dressing that is a little more full-bodied, rich and creamy, this is an awesome  option. This batch came out pretty thick, almost like a yogurt consistency. Feel free to thin with additional water, or use less cashews. Top your salad with fresh blackberries, grapes, sunflower seeds, etc.

Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie

I've posted a Mint Chocolate Chip smoothie previously using almond milk and real mint. Today, I created a similar smoothie with a few different ingredients. This is why I love Medicine Flower extracts so much! You can create an amazing variety of flavors that titillate your taste buds. The flavors are SUPER concentrated, so you only need a couple of drops!

Award Winning - Chewy Chocolate Coco-Nutty Super Puffs

I was traveling to visit my kids and granddaughter, and grabbed a bunch of ingredients, blended them up, and dehydrated them so I'd have a healthy snack to munch on while away. My daughter ended up eating most of them after her rigorous work-outs. I ended up leaving them behind for her to finish up. We stored them in the freezer, and found they tasted even better that way! As always, many of the ingredients can be eliminated or replaced. Let your creative juices flow...Update: So excited to be awarded a gift certificate by Nutiva for this recipe.

Purple Taco Shell

The idea was to make a SOFT tortilla shell. Silly me, forgetting that corn is crunchy, not flexible. I'd have to do some major tweaking to get a soft shell. We ended up with wonderful purple corn taco shells. We stuffed them with "refried beans" made with almonds which were amazing. Honesty, I don't think anyone would know they were not refried beans!  They certainly would never guess they were made with almonds! We also added Guacamole, Salsa and Mexican Veggies

Super Green Ginger Snap Smoothie

For something a little different, I created this Ginger Snap Smoothie.

I honestly can't say its my all time favorite, but it's very tasty and W seemed to REALLY liked it a lot, and it was a nice change.

Green Chocolate N' Cherry Smoothie

Gotta love smoothies - The variety, texture, and endless possibilities never cease to amaze me. As I continue to learn more about ingredients, my raw food palette grows, right along with my raw food palate!!! This recipe can be made with fresh or frozen cherries, but if you don't have them (I didn't), you can use my favorite concentrated ingredient - Medicine Flower Extracts. I added a whopping THREE drops of MorelloCherry extract, and it was absolutely PERFECT!

Chocolate Peanutbutter(less) Smoothie

Sometimes you feel like a nut...sometimes you don't. Enhancing this recipe with a drop or two of my favorite Medicine Flower flavor extracts, makes all the difference in the world. Create a "peanut" smoothie without the nuts!!! When I'm in the mood for something different, I'm just so grateful for the amazing concentrated flavors created by Medicine Flower.

Red Raspberry Smoothie - Got Raspberries? NOPE!


No Raspberries? That's okay! While running around trying to find a dress for my daughter's wedding...oops, we ran out of greens and fruit for our morning smoothies. I decided to try something new and where I normally use coconut water and meat as a smoothie base, I set the coconut meat aside for another recipe by freezing it, and just using the coconut water.

Hazelnut Cloud Smoothie

Making a basic green smoothie, is relatively simple and I've posted some easy recipes in the past, but IF smoothies are something you plan on doing every day, like I do...sometimes you just want something DIFFERENT. By adding flavored extracts and assorted Raw products, you can take your smoothies to the next level. You certainly don't have to use all of the products I suggest in this recipe. You can stick with the basics, however.. I like to work with a FUN and COLORFUL palette, to satisfy my palate.

Green Cherry Papaya Smoothie Bliss

D E L I C I O U S! I'm not a big fruity smoothie person. I really dig my cacao...but this was totally scrumptious. Fresh papaya and some frozen cherries...and other goodies...(see below)...

Green Chocolate Walnut Smoothie

This continues to be one of my favorite smoothies, and it's so easy. If you don't have these ingredients, you might want to consider trying them...Sip slowly and savor the amazing, rich walnut flavor!!!

APPLE CIDER DONUTS

The air is cool and crisp, back into long sleeves, and snuggling under the blanket at night while watching TV, or listening to music. Apples are so scrumptious right now, I have them for lunch every day. After working on my previous Apple Walnut Muffins, I was reminded of the days we used to take our kids to the farm, pick apples and feast on Apple Cider Donuts.

RAWsh Kebobs

My sweetheart, W, was craving veggie kebobs the other night. I had seen a photo that someone posted recently with raw kebobs, so I figured I'd give it a shot. They came out very tasty. You can experiment with different spices and sauces. I'd let the veggies marinate overnight next time, but a very nice light dish. The pineapple really enhanced the flavors.
