Who wants cake?!

Here is a layer cake with strawberry frosting - made the other day for my friend's birthday. They're the same cake done up a bit differently.

OMG!!! FG, that cake looks incredible! Wow!

I declare thou the Ultimate Raw Dessert Queen!

Oh, and yes pleeze, I'd like a piece too! lol

Great job on those turtles! ;-)

Here's what we had the last couple of days for supper:

- Chef Dan's Cannellonis (look better than they tasted!)

- Erica's famous Fajitas, submitted to the Recipe Contest. The sour cream didn't turn out as well this time, somehow... I couldn't find any Taco Seasonings so I came up with a mixture of my own. Yummers!

Fairy.... GIRL!!! I want that cake!! I want! I want! I want! *that's the spoilt me talking*

Okay I have to join in the fun. All the food pictures are good-looking!

This is what I had for dinner tonight. My very all-time favourite snack! Truly simple! Truly nutritious! Its simply young coconut meat mixed in with dulse flakes and flax seeds. I added the flax seeds for crunch because I love nuts so this is one way to reduce my nuts intake this dish came about when all I had at home were these 3 things this is for you Carmella, since you love seaveggies too, try this you will love it.

.... and oh, followed by the MahaSanook!! The MANgo next to my simple meal!! This is in season and it is truly delicious!! No fibers just smooth creamy sweet meat. And the name... Maha - means Great and Sanook - Fun.... yes indeed, it was Great Fun devouring it!!

This was what I had for dinner some days ago.

Its a dish of little of everything.

You see portabella mushrooms with (bottom) pesto stuffing and (top) red bell pepper sauce by Chef Russell. On the side is zucchini pasta with the same red bell sauce topped with avocadoes and alfalfa sprouts along with some tomatoes. Sorry I had some bites first then I remembered to snap some shots

Hi Carmella, yes the coconut meat was sliced into noodles. These were truly young, underage ones but you can use any form of coconut meat if you like but not too mature ones.

...... and.... *drumrolls please*..... here I present to you, Raw Nutella.

Enjoy

Oh wow Danny_banany, those look truly scrumptious!! Those and of course Fairygirls' look awesome! Where can I get the recipe?? Am I missing something here....?

Okay, after having gone several days of not having proper foods on a plate so I took sweet 'revenge' and created a platter

Salad with pasta (could not decide between zucchini or carrots so I had both ) served with my tomato sauce with avocadoes and mushrooms on the sides.... I love this!!

Celebrating In The Raw

Thought I'd share the lovely birthday meal I had yesterday...

It was just PERFECT!!! Simple and delicious; just the way I like 'em!

- Maraw's wonderful Carrot Soup
- Marinated Curried Kale Salad
- Portobello Caps With Tomato Mayo and Guac

And a very special dessert treat indeed: Don had brought back two lovely desserts from Chantale's new raw restaurant in town: Chocolate Mousse Torte and Strawberry Shortcake.

The Shortcake suffered a little on its way here so doesn't look so good, but it was quite nice. My favorite was the Choc Mousse, though. Yum! Yum! We served these with juicy strawberries and cherries. Summertime Bliss!
