Custom Cakes by Rainbow Nourishments (Raw Vegan Cake Maker)

Was watching a health infomercial and the gentleman was supplying a recipe for a cake.  He showed the cake and then said we wouldn't believe what the ingredients were.  Have to admit when I saw the recipe I thought that cake was the best disguise I've ever seen.  Indeed, until I had to change my eating habits, it never occurred to me that so many foods that I loved to eaten could be prepared a completely different way and still be enjoyed.  Who knew?  

Evidently the vegans knew and are way ahead with this knowledge.  In one of my previous posts I shared my love of cake ("Which Cultures Make the Best Cakes?").  Today while surfing the Internet, stumbled across these wonderful creations by a food blogger named Anthea, who published a blog is RainbowNourishments.com.  She makes customs cakes.  Sure!  There are a lot of custom cakes makers out there.  But this lady specializes in raw vegan cakes that are indescribable!

This recipe captures pretty much everything that I love about cakes. I love taking a bite of a sponge cake and squashing the air out of it in my mouth (ok, that sounds weird and confronting, but it's the truth so I'll stick with it). I love the simplicity and smoothness of raw cakes.

Acai Bowl Cheesecakes

Smoothie bowls are a staple in my diet as they are quick to make, delicious and can be made out of pantry/freezer ingredients. Smoothie bowls are normally thick smoothies poured into bowls, made with some sort of frozen fruit, and topped with things like granola, fresh fruit, dried fruit, nuts, coconut...

Rainbow nicecream cake

Whoever invented nicecream (aka icecr eam made of blended bananas) is a genius.I thought: what if I could combine my current favourite food (nicecream) with my favourite concept (rainbows) into something that could enjoy at ANY time of the day. This marbled nicecream cake reminds me that adults CAN have fun with their food.

Favorite Delicatessen Food - Daily Two Cents

We are all grateful to the Earl of Sandwich. Legend says he was in a hurry one day, slapped a piece of meat between two pieces of bread and the sandwich was invented. Eh! That's the story I heard. Whoever! Thank you! :)

Anyway, here is a link to a post by a fellow freelance writer about favorite places to eat. Brought back nice memories. Best place to eat for a great sandwich is a kosher delicatessen. He recounts an experience at a restaurant in Palm Beach, Florida. My memories are from Miami Beach. Wherever! It's all good food. :)

CHICKEN RECIPES – The Best of

Award-winning TV chef, Lidia Bastianich, says that “chicken” is the most searched for food term. There is no reason to think that fact needs to be checked out. Lots of people love chicken! Fried, stewed, baked, barbecued, grilled! There has got to be a million plus ways to prepare this delightful bird and make it taste like it's the first time you've ever eaten it! Agree?

 

When people say “best of”, it's almost always purely subjective. However, for several years I have been collecting what, in my opinion is the “best” chicken recipes from wherever they can be found and as of today my Pinterest board boasts close to 600 recipes.

Here is a quick list of just a few of the best chicken dishes ever.

Jamaican Brown Stew Chicken

Yeah mon!! :)


Mango makes everything taste good!
 




Who doesn't like Greek or Thai food? (O.o) (???)
 


Honey Jalapeno Chicken Tenders

Finger food in its finest hour!
 


* soy sauce, red wine vinegar, brown sugar, garlic, olive oil.

Just listing the seasonings makes my mouth water.
 

Chicken Rice Casserole Sunday Supper

The mighty one pot dish!
 


* use a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken.

Said the magic word. Easy!!
 

Lemon Chicken Rice Soup

Best Chicken Detox Soup

Don't resist chicken soup! It's good for the soul! :)

What's your favorite part of the chicken? (Breasts or dark meat?)

  • I like chicken thighs.

Do you also like chicken livers, gizzards, and hearts?

  • If you tenderize them you can cook them in a stew with carrots, potatoes and green cabbage. It's a poor man's meal but very filling.

Do you have favorite way you like to eat chicken?

To Beet or Not to Beet is No Longer the Question

So here's my sad childhood story. Beets! Growing up, in my house the only person that ever ate beets was my late mother. The thing is … she didn't even try to encourage me or tempt me to taste them. No! SHE JUST ATE THEM ALL! As a kid, there was nothing appealing or appetizing about them. So … like broccoli and figs and other wonderful foods that looked questionable through a child's eyes … I just didn't eat them! Wasn't even curious.



In my adult years, forty plus years ago, I met my husband. Would you believe it? He tells me a similar childhood story, except that both his mom and his dad ate beets. Beets and beets and beets. They just couldn't get enough of em!

Come to find out … beets are good for you! WHAT???!!



Why would our parents keep that a secret? We don't know! So they could have more for themselves?? Seems the only logical explanation!



Nevertheless, we love our parents and thank them for all of the other meaningful secrets of life that they did reveal to us. We'll overlook the best kept beet secret.  :)



Anyway! …. Now that we've learned “the rest of the story”, the question of “To beet or not to beet” has been answered. We just need to figure out a way to incorporate this awesomely nutritious super food into our diet.



Found a treasure trove of beet recipes at Flipboard, a site where I am experimenting with publishing my own food magazine. (The magazine is called My I Like Eating Channel. Yes it's the same name as my curated content topic board on Scoop.it. I know! I'm not very original and I copy myself a lot!)



Sharing a few recipes from the Flipboard collection that look like they might be very tasty. However, the first share below was actually found elsewhere on the web. It's about beet juice. Did you know that it's drink of champions? Well it is!

As a parent myself, I know that no matter how good veggies may be, it's sometimes hard to get your kids (or yourself) to eat them! Thank the Lord for juice and juicers! Sometimes folks who won't EAT their veggies, don't have too much of a problem with DRINKING their veggies.

You can roast the beets or boil them. Roasting the beets will give them more flavor, but it takes longer and will use more energy than boiling.

My birthday happened at the beginning of the month. I hosted a big seafood feast. I wanted a bunch of my favorite people together at a table and a ton of seafood - Dungeness crab, oysters, a big stew with mussels and clams and fish, etc.

Chinese Fortune Cookies as American as Apple Pie

The Chinese fortune cookies are not an Asian invention, but rather an American one.  A conclusion based on my extensive research of Chinese history, tradition and culture (i.e. watching a lot of kung fu movies).  There was a story circulated about rebels in the 13th or 14th century, using them to pass secret messages to each other about their war plans to overthrow the Mongols. Pure fiction. But you must admit that plot sure has the makings of an epic saga.


Alas!  The truth is the Chinese fortune cookie is as American as apple pie; and they make great party favors.  


Would you like to make your own homemade fortune cookies?  


Well you can!

This Sunbeam kitchen accessory is a must have.
