Recipes: Chocolate Cherry Crumble

I’ve been holding this recipe for the past few weeks in complete anticipation of sharing it with you all! Before the last of our summer cherries slip away, here you are…a chocolate cherry crisp with (gasp!) almost but not quite five ingredients! That’s right, I created a recipe with less than 10 ingredients for once.  My friends over at The Fresh Exchange blog have this nifty little series …

After the most blissful week of camping in Joshua Tree for Spirit Weaver’s Gathering, I drove back to the coast to quench my dry desert thirst with a few days of LA meandering, filled with juice bar explorations, farmer’s market wanderings and beachside picnics. I finally got the chance to check out my dream of a juice bar, Moon Juice, when I was in LA …

In an unexpected way, climbing has deepened my connection with my personal yoga practice on and off the …

What if this year we ditched those expectations. What if we focused our energy towards loving ourselves fully, loving others unconditionally, and becoming …

Recipes: Raw Coconut Probiotic Yogurt

Today is the last day of summer.  I think we’re all lamenting how quickly it came and went this year.  While it was over 100 degrees just the other day, the leaves are already turning yellow and falling off the trees one by one.  It rained last night, bringing in a cool crisp breeze that is worthy of a big comfy sweater and an extra cup of tea …

Recipes: Cashew-Free Raw Vegan German Chocolate Cake

At 11pm on Tuesday night, I crawled into bed with a handful of cookbooks and asked my boyfriend, “If you could have any one dessert for your birthday what would it be?”

We flipped through the cookbooks of NYC’s beloved vegan bakery Babycakes and found some close winners. But Matthew Kenney & Meredith Baird’s Everyday Raw Desserts took the cake, literally.  Our eyes settled on their recipe …

Recipes: Raw Chocolate Orange Mousse Cake

I’m celebrating this week.  Celebrating life, blissful connections, new opportunities, spending time in nature, being with close friends and beloved family, sweet weddings, golden orange and pink sunsets on the beach, crisp clean saltwater-scented air, long meals and laughter in the kitchen…and much, much more.

This cake is certainly one for celebrations, and one to be celebrated! I originally made it for Kathleen’s birthday after we got back …
