Perfect Pear Tart

I like this recipe even better than apple pie. With pears in season, the fruit is tender, sweet and juicy! It’s easy to prepare Irish Moss Paste in advance and freeze in cubes. Defrost, and you are ready to go. This recipe is actually pretty quick and easy. Give it a try...and comment below.

Raw Cranberry Apple Tart


The Apple Tart I prepared last week, was the best tasting raw apple pie I've had to date, however, I wanted to tweak the recipe and make it really special for Thanksgiving. This Cranberry Apple Tart is absolutely delicious! Even your non-raw family and friends will love it.

Raw AppleTart/Pie

Here on the East coast, the leaves are falling, and the air is crisp. Before we know it, the holiday season will be upon us. For many of us, these are challenging times. Gathering with family and loved ones, triggers old eating habits and SAD(Standard American Diet) temptations are everywhere. For me, the best way to handle these times, is to be armed with raw dishes that are reminiscent of the traditional cuisine we are all used to. Raw Cranberry Relish and Apple Pie, are two of my favorites. This tart is made with Irish Moss Paste, which lends to its beautiful texture, and holds it together even at room temperature. You can also warm it in the dehydrator.

Raw Autumn Pear Tart

W brought home a bunch of pears in different varieties. Time to revisit this amazing tart.

Wrote previously...OH YUM! Autumn is here... and I was in need of a really good COMFORT dessert! W brought me a bunch of pears and I had to use them before they got too ripe. This came out extraordinary! It tastes a lot like apple pie, except, I think I may like this better. The pears were sweet, tender and juicy. I used Bartlett Pears and then added a Red Pear for a little more texture.

Green Papaya Smoothie

Christopher Columbus referred to papayas as "the fruit of the angels."  Papayas contain papain, an enzyme that helps digest proteins. In addition to providing a luscious taste that we associate with the tropics, they are rich in antioxidant nutrients, vitamins and minerals such as carotenes, vitamin C, flavonoids, B vitamins, folate, pantothenic acid, potassium, magnesium, and fiber.The enzymes and nutrients in papaya are noted to be helpful in treating many disorders, such as heart disease, high cholesterol, cancer, inflammation, IBS etc.

Traveling and Greens

Eating raw while traveling has certainly provided challenges for me. I continue to make my yummy green smoothies, but meal times are tough. I'm sitting in a hospital most of the day, so salads have become my friend. Here are some tips for creating some quick and easy salads on the go.

On The Road, And Smoothies

It takes some creativity and planning, but preparing yummy smoothies on the road can be done. We were staying with family while my Mom was having double bi-pass surgery, which got postponed due to bronchitis. We, had to extend our stay at Mom's request so I could be there to help. Her "significant" other, however, had his own idea about what would work for HIM, and contrary to her wishes, and rather than working together as a team, he wanted to be alone and have us stay in a motel. The added expense of renting a car, and a motel for an undetermined amount of time, along with the loss of a kitchen and utensils, created some challenges and added stress to an already stressful situation.

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie (Green)

Simple, delicious and easy to make. You all know how much I love chocolate and not so much a fruity person, but I wanted to try something new today using my incredible strawberry extracts. You can use fresh strawberries or any extract you normally use, but this was just F I N E! I also like to keep the fruit to a minimum in my smoothies, so the extracts help punch up the flavor without the added fruit.

Sweet Chocolate Camouflage Smoothie

Where's the Green?? It's there! Yesterday was my first full day, Green Smoothie Feast. It went well, but the hardest part was evening cravings for crunchies. Woke up today ready to roll, but wanted something really satisfying, that was reminiscent of my old smoothie days, but chock full of greens. This sounds like a wild combo. I'm learning to STOP AND TASTE every time I add a new ingredient to a smoothie. Tasting helps me decide what needs to be added next and that's how I came up with this chocolate beauty!
