Tuesday Twofer: Carrot Apple Juice

February 17, 2010

This juice takes me back to Christmas 1992.  Time compresses in interesting ways, but for me, in my memory, 1992 was the glory year for informercials, with Stop the Insanity, Tony Robbins, Tony Little (I think,) and, maybe most useful of all, Juiceman Jay Kordich. Though I wasn’t vegan at the time, my mom was […]

Everything in a Cookie

July 18, 2009

This is the cookie for people who can’t decide on anything, like your host, for example: peanut butter oatmeal raisin chocolate chip. If we put anything else in, we’d legally have to change the name to trail mix. 3 tbsp ground flax seeds 5 tbsp water 3/4 cup sugar 1/2 cup whole wheat flour 1/2 […]

Raw Nut Loaf

July 11, 2009

Most raw recipes I see need a lot of planning so you can soak your nuts (heh heh) in advance and whatnot, but this one can be prepared in a hurry. It tastes better after sitting for a few hours, but it’s still pretty good fresh from the pan. From The Complete Book of Raw […]
