Good Morning, December! I LOVE YOU!

Hello! It's DECEMBER!!!! YAY!

The Thanksgiving Dinners were fun. I had 8 orders total and here is a very cool part: every single person who ordered from me gave me MORE than I was charging! I even got an entire avocado pie as a gift from Raw Chef Marion! WOW! Thank you, Everyone! I was really touched.

I made, as promised:

cornbread dressing (corn, cashews, celery, parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, etc.)

brazil nut patties with a creamy gravy on top (brazil nuts, celery, parsley, etc, dehydrated overnight)

a spinach/satsuma/candied pecan salad

and carrot cake!

All in all, I actually made about 5 carrot cakes because I brought them to various Thanksgiving Day gatherings. Raw carrot cake is GOOD! I'm perfecting my own recipe...will it post soon...

I've been riding a bike a lot lately.

Thank you for getting me around and getting me out in the weather, closer to the trees and wind and sky, Bike. I love you.

I had my first solo urban foraging adventure the other morning when I got the guts to climb the fence of this vacant property and gather a backpack full of lemons from a lemon tree.

These lemons have a lot of seeds, but they are humongous!

Thank you, Lemon Tree! I love you.

I made Carmella's Banana Chocolate Cream Cake with frozen blueberries in place of bananas:

It is de-LISH-ious! Thank you, Carmella! I love you!!!

December!! Welcome. Time for HOT CHOCOLATE!!! I had my first raw hot chocolate today: Raw cacao powder with warm water and honey. I'm a convert. Who knew???
