I continue to share some of my favorite natural cleaning recipes made out of ingredients you can get at the grocery store. This homemade natural eco-friendly laundry detergent is another amazing recipe so get your stirring spoons out, because this quick, easy recipe is a winner! For many years I have used baking soda, vinegar, lavender oil, and tea tree oil to do my washing. But, when I came across this recipe I decided to give it a go, and I love it! This mixture is so easy to make,…

Natural Kitchen Surface Spray

I have the most amazing discovery to share – a fantastic company that has developed a phenomenal line of eco-friendly cleaning tools that are helping America go green with their cleaning routine. These are literally the most functional, durable, stylish eco cleaning tools I have ever used! The “practical-yet-gorgeous” design of these products blows me away. Every detail has been fully thought-through -- such as ergonomic handles that make the tools easy to hold and highly effective, a…

Raw Activated Maple Cinnamon Almonds

I have been inspired by our Gluten Free Healthy Surprise Giveaway, and so this month I am sharing some quick easy gluten free vegan snack recipes. These maple cinnamon almonds are absolutely scrumptious! Raw almonds are my favorite snack food, and if I want to make them more decadent, I cover them in different sweeteners and flavorings and dehydrate them. I made a few different kinds of sugar almonds last Christmas, and they were a huge hit. I have labelled this recipe as "raw" because…

No-Bake Apricot Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

My raw vegan lemon cranberry raisin oatmeal cookies were so popular last year that I wanted to share a variation of this raw vegan oatmeal cookie recipe. I am also experimenting with new allergy free recipes I can make with my niece Alexandra when I go home next month! I am already counting the days until I have that little girl in my arms. I am flying back for her third birthday party and I thought these gluten free, dairy free, egg free, nut free and soy free cookies would make a…

LA Times: CookBook Cafe App

I was really excited when the lovely Rene Lynch, food editor at The LA Times asked to interview me for her story about the new Cookbook Cafe App that Bake Space launched last year. I first met Rene at the TechMunch LA 2011 Food Bloggers conference, where she rescued my abandoned laptop after lunch! I knew we would become fine friends. LOL! After chatting to Rene like a high school friend and almost forgetting that the subject of the conversation was NOT me, I got down to the task at…

Vegan Lasagna

You are in for a treat today, because I am going to introduce you to Fresh N Lean -- my favorite vegan meal delivery service. I had the pleasure of visiting their commercial kitchen and headquarters in Marina Del Rey, CA, and tasted many of their incredible recipes. One bite of their lasagne and I was hooked...along with hundreds of other people, as they revealed it was their most popular recipe! I, of course, boldly asked if I could have the recipe to share with you, and guess what?…

Sneak-In-The-Veggies Pasta Sauce

I cannot believe I haven't shared my favorite tomato pasta sauce recipe until now. Just like the vegetable soup recipe I shared last week, I make this pasta sauce recipe so often for my niece, that I forget to post it! I was actually prompted to post this by one of my favorite readers, Eric, who wrote to me for some advice about how to sneak more vegetables into his son, Tony's diet. Tony was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 5, and at age of 10, has undergone almost 30 rounds of…

Vegetable Soup with Sun-Dried Tomato Pistou

My father and I have had a 30-year debate about the virtues of chunky versus blended soups. We have agreed to disagree and acknowledge that there is room in the belly for both! Scott prefers chunky soups over blended soups, and this blend is his all-time favorite. We switch up the pistou and the vegetables every week, but this is the mix we like the best. Scott is so obsessed with semi-dried tomatoes that mum and dad bubble-wrap jars and pack them in their suitcase when they come to…
