Plum, Apple, Thyme Slush (or Soup)

A wonderfully refreshing drink. The thyme pulls it away from being a breakfast. And, it’s just too sweet to call it breakfast, unless you use berries and reduce the amount to a 1/2 cup. This version is good for a summer afternoon or evening. Also included is a Bulletproof version.

Raw appetizers: Raviolis, Cannellonis, Creamsicle, Chocolate Mousse

Holiday appetizers can come in a variety of forms and flavors… here are mine, that I created for the “Raw Food Connection” potluck in Monterey this past weekend.

Raw vegan version of a Caprese Salad

I served this version of my Caprese Salad today at a Raw Food potluck. Used a green tomato and the ‘cheese’ is pine nuts blended with olive oil, green tomato and basil. Marinated the fennel and green apple in lime juice.

Vegan version of a Caprese Salad

I served this vegan version of a Caprese Salad for a group of 14 women at Stillheart. It was a HUGE hit …. the flavors, the textures and the adventure of eating it — with a steak knife.

Caprese Salad, a cheese-free version

T’was hard to select a star player of our meal when two of the three dishes really stood out. I’ll give my vote to this one, tho, because it clearly can stand on its own. This vegetarian version of the Caprese Salad was very very good! What a beautiful presentation, too.

Dehydrated Roasted Apple, Smoked Bacon, Raspberry Bites

Yum on the tongue…. for an amuse bouche, appetizer …or… dessert.

Baked figs with chocolate, bacon, goat cheese, and candied orange peel and ginger

An exceptional mix of flavors, textures and temperatures.

Apple Mint Truffle Kabobs

This has a tart, sour, sweet, yet verrrry earthy play on the tongue. (An amuse bouche, appetizer or dessert.)

This sweet sour combination is sure to get your juices going….
