raw cookie dough

I know for a fact that I'm not the only person in the world who loves raw cookie dough. Imagine you could eat raw cookie dough and not worry about eating raw eggs or gain 20 pounds in one sitting. Sound good? Imagine that your raw cookie dough is at least vaguely healthy and full of protein. Sweet. Enter in the raw cookie dough! Focus on the picture and not the ingredients. I'd seen a few similar recipes around, but when I tried them I thought the proportions tasted a bit off. This version makes the flavors blend together better and taste more like real cookie dough. ...more

Easy Pickled Peppers & Cucumbers

Ooooh, girl. My mouth just watered. Anyway, you name it, and it can be pickled. Cucumbers? Obviously. Asparagus. Duh. Use the deliciously brined stalks to stir a bloody mary. Carrots? Uh huh. ...more

Cheezy Broccoli Bites (Raw & Vegan)

Cheezy Kale Chips are the BOMB!!! Totally addictive in a healthy way! My only complaint is The "cheeze" will flake off the kale chips and makes a crumbly mess when you eat it.  Not to mention, you end up with kale ALL in your teeth.  Not very attractive.. I really love this cheeze sauce and came up with another way to eat it.   I made the same cashew cheeze sauce recipe and put it on broccoli.....more
