I have released four recipe books so far:

The Best of the Sunny Raw Kitchen
The Best of Raw Freedom Community
Delightfully Raw and
Deliciously Raw

These feature some of the most delectable creations to have come out of my raw kitchen and will appeal to anyone interested in a healthier diet, regardless of their level of knowledge and experience. From easy one-step everyday fare to more elaborate and involved gourmet dishes and layered cakes, they offer something for everyone and every occasion. Incredibly tasty smoothies, creamy and comforting warm soups, sexy salads, delicious nut cheezes, satisfying entrees and scrumptious guilt-free desserts...

Healthy food never tasted so good!

Walk 'n Talk 'n Rawkin'

Been meaning to post about Jaime's (Don's niece) visit earlier this month, but haven't got around to it until now... Too many balls in the air! It sorta feels like not-so-new news anymore, but I thought I'd at least share a few of the highlights and beautiful photos taken that week. (You know, so that you don't feel left 'out-of-the-loop'!) Plus, the food we had was so unbelievably yummy and gorgeous, I just had to give you a little visual piece! ;-)

Walk 'n Talk
The weather totally cooperated while Jaime was here, so we spent most of our time outside, having engaging conversations in the sun and enjoying nice, long walks. We took Jaime to the 'Look Out', a few minutes hike away from the lodge. Such a power spot, with a breathtaking view of the Slocan Valley mountains. It is said that, in the old days, the Native people came to the valley to do vision quests; a fact which is certainly not hard to believe...

We feel so blessed here, in our little corner of paradise (quite literally!) Not only do we live on Paradise Valley Road, but just across from the Valhalla Provincial Park (the word 'Valhalla' referring to the Vikings' heaven.)
Here's Don pointing out the Valhalla mountains to Jaime.

Rawkin' In The Kitchen
As was to be expected, Jaime and I uncooked up a storm: lasagna, cannellonis, egg salad on rye bread, garlicky toasts... And so many scrumptious desserts! Turtles, Lemon Poppy Seed Cake, Banana Nut Pancakes, Cinnamon Rolls and puddings. Jaime is so artistic and has such an eye for presentation! Once again, it was a real pleasure to be rawkin' away with her.

She had brought along our brand new Vitamix 5000 (Yay!) which Don and I are utterly in love with. Now we're wondering how we could do without it for so long! We can't get over how quickly and effectively it blends everything! Talk about smooooth smoothies and soups!

But 'nuff said, let's leave the images to speak for themselves.

How about starting with dessert first for a change?

Turtles Revisited

Joz's Lemon Poppy Seed Cake (Jaime did the lovely artwork!)

Anna-Maraw's fabulous Banana Nut Pancakes

Chocolate Pudding

And Chocolate Tarts

We also enjoyed my famous Indian Feast on our last evening together. An epicurean hit every single time!

My Curry Soup, Samosas, Ginger Rice, Marinated Indian Kale Salad and Curry Sauce

Photos Galore
Jaime's timing couldn't have been better! She felt she needed a little vacation to recharge before her new adventure. (She's going to art school in New-Zealand this summer.) She was also able to shoot some photos for my upcoming ebook. (Yay!)

We took the opportunity to have some more up-to-date shots of the furry family as well.

DaPuss (Isn't she a cutie!?!)

Angel (who usually never shows up with our little camera, as she is so dark...)

I guess that pretty much covers it all. But wait a minute... What about Kylo? He's got a thing against cameras, so no can do this time.

Ahhhhh, that feels better! So nice to have caught up on the backlog! ;-)

Coming Up Soon...
Do you know what these are?

Join me later this week on a tour of wild edibles and find out!
