Raw Chocolate

Raw chocolate is so easy, delicious and actually healthful... You can whip up a batch in 3 minutes or less and use it so many ways. Heated up to liquification it's a delicious chocolate sauce to drizzle over ice cream or berries, etc.

I like to keep a jar on hand at all times and use in my raw goat milk cappuccinos every morning. 

It's delicious in raw milk- including raw nut milk, heated up and made into a frothy, creamy and healthy, hot cocoa. 

I like to soak a handful of raw cashews and two medjool dates, blend them up in the soak water and enough extra to make 3 cups in my VitaMix with a big spoonful of my raw chocolate (already made up and kept in a jar.) and blend on high until warm and frothy and creamy. Decadent and loaded with nutrients but no chemicals or other nasty and unwanted junk. Try it and let me know what you think!

Eating healthy can be so simple if we have good stuff on hand. 

I mix however much of each ingredient to taste in a jar. Stir it all together while the jar sits in a pan of hot water until blended well and liquified. Approximate measurements:
1 cup high quality coconut oil.
1/4 cup raw local honey
1/3 tsp. Pink homily an salt or other good sea salt
1/2 cup raw cocoa powder

Raspberry Summer Salad

It's too hot to cook! Anyway my husband and I love a good salad. This one was pretty delish.
About two handfuls of baby greens- I like herb mix and arugula. 
Add cooked and cold sliced chicken breasts well seasoned.
Add small chunks of zucchini and pepper jack cheese.
Toss in plump, ripe raspberries and dress with homemade good for you Vinaigrette

Crottin Part 3

Pitiful little salty, hard, hockey pucks.
Pathetic things. They didn't develop even a hint of lovely mold.

Alas, my beautiful little Crottin cheeses didn't become the promising, creamy and dreamy morsels I had hoped for. 

To start with I should not have combined recipes and salted them. I think I dried them in the open air too long before caving them as well. Last but certainly not least, I never could get the humidity high enough no matter how hard I tried in my little cave. 

I will not give up though. It's worth trying again, but I'll have to wait until I have the time again. 

Learn from my mistakes...��
