Over the years I've accumulated soooo many cookbooks, I read them like novels, and I really do use them, but I'm a bit of a rebel and never ever follow the recipes to the letter. So as I've said, this is my newest food blogging project, sharing what I make and reccommending some fine cookbooks!
This is a good one. I love raw desserts and the unique thing about this book is it also tells you how to make the recipes even if you don't have a dehydrator, of course they wouldn't be raw but you'd have more instant gratifictaion without all those hours of dehydrating time.
Here's some coconut macaroons. I love these! You know those famous Ferraro white chocolate truffles with a hazelnut in the center and rolled in coconut. I swear they taste like those truffles. Next time I'll make them with hazelnuts.
And there's a recipe for "5-minute Blondies" and they're not kidding. 5 minutes at the most! Just buzz up some walnuts and pecans in the food processor and add dates and you're done! I wanted to freeze some for the holidays so I added some pistachios and dried cranberries, and I think they look really Christmas-y.
I love this cookbook. Many times raw food cookbooks require hard-to-get exotic ingredients, but this one isn't like that. Very friendly and accessible.
