I must be doing something right in the kitchen, because here’s another recipe I just wasn’t fast enough to grab my portion! Sure, as the chef de cuisine, I get my taste, but so often everything disappears before I can settle down for a good munch! In this case, my son scurried away with two [...]

At times this is a staple in our house. It’s just so brainlessly easy to make, and so ridiculously delicious, I love having it on the table to go owith whatever else is rummaged up. Fresh papaya is so succulent and rich… like juicy butter! It’s such a wonder that it has no fat in [...]

What a wonderfully luscious breakfast smoothie! Ridiculously creamy, extremely mild, low in sugar (you might want to add some additional sweet fruit or raw honey if you’re craving some sweet)… and slightly exotic due to the bit of Orange Blossom Water that finishes it off. What, you say… you still haven’t picked yourself up a [...]

So add this to your list of rejuvenating, immune system- boosting, beta carotene rich raw smoothies. And just add some fresh greens to make it a Live Green Smoothie! Papaya is just tops for enhancing [...]

This is one of those smoothies that makes me wonder why in the world, when beverages like this are so easy to whip up, do most people spend their days drinking diet sodas and other drinks filled with chemicals, sugar, and high fructose corn syrup. People soooo need to learn how to whip drinks up [...]

  • Angela Leeds: Hi Chris, There isn't a substitute for cacao butter because it has a distinct flavor and cools to a very hard texture. It can be hard to find locally
