What??? A post without frightful props? What happened?!! Now, don’t be getting too comfy cozy over here with these non-scary photos. Sure, today they are sans severed fingers and bloody hands but that doesn’t mean they are gone forever. Oh no! You’d have to check my temperature if half-way through the month I stop the Halloween fun…...
Raw Witches Fingers

Raw Witches Fingers

Raw food used to scare me. Come to think of it, so did gluten-free/vegan baking. It just felt like this monolithic presence, impossible to conquer. In fact, it was more overwhelming just thinking about where and how to start that I could never get past the crippling fear. I have come to find that, with...

Trick-or-Treat! Thank you to those who have been asking about my whereabouts in the past 3 days. You know me so well to know that something must have been up for me to not be around during MoFo/and my HAL*RAW*WEEN theme. The truth is that I poorly prepared for my niece’s visit from this weekend...
Raw Chocolate Cake Pops

Raw Chocolate Cake Pops

I am having hauntingly delicious daydreams of these Raw Cake Pops, my most frightful friends. It was a most spooktacular moment, when from out of the food processor, I took a scoop of this dough with my finger to taste it. It was un-BOO-lievable. How is it possible that this could actually taste like a moist chocolate...

The moment you got home right after trick-or-treating was always the highlight of the night, wasn’t it? For me, there was no time wasted when I would rush into the living room floor, dump out the sugary loot, and then proceed to divide the candy into 2 piles: the good stash vs. the crappy stuff (which,...

Yesterday I indulged myself to a trip to one of those fun Halloween stores. You know, those pop up stores that appear in empty warehouses or stores come September, full of costumes, decorations and other fun hauntings?… I’m not gonna lie–I felt like I was at Disneyland for those 30 minutes. Well, *my* version of Disneyland, if Walt created...

Growing up, my mother was a total Halloween pusher. This probably explains my undeniable love for the holiday. Must be hereditary–it’s in my blood… It was never good enough that I wanted to be a Fairy Princess or a Ballerina. Oh no, in preparation for my costume, my mother would always say to me, “Why...

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Halloween is my most favorite holiday in the whole wide world. There is something magically delicious about this time for me; something that brings out my creativity in a way that nothing else can. And what better way to over-indulge myself than to celebrate all month long...
Raw Key Lime Pie

Raw Key Lime Pie

Talk about having your cake (er, pie) and eating it too, this raw key lime pie makes for the perfect breakfast. And I should know. I am currently eating a “slice” as I write this post.  You might be asking yourself why slice is in quotes (or for some of you, you understand me completely). There is no such...
Raw Chocolate Sauce

Raw Chocolate Sauce

The second “must-have” ingredient when making raw desserts is Raw Cacao Powder. A great source of antioxidants–it is said that raw cacao powder has a higher antioxidant content than blueberries and red wine. Full of essential minerals, this super versitile ingredient can be used in Chia Seed Pudding: Cashew Milk: Chocolate Pudding Pies: and this chocolate sauce: It is also...

No-Bake Apple Cobbler

A good friend said to me recently, Relationships can be confusing and frustrating and all of those things, but that usually stems from some illusion that things are expected to be a certain way. When you relax and let the universe show you just what you need, it usually ends up okay. Over the past...
