Weekend Fun

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. It was a fun and delicious filled one around here...

I had a booth in the first local farmers market of the season. Unfortunately I don't have any pics of the event but it was fun. Caramel pecan choccie clusters were a feature, as were raw chocolate truffles, granola bars, raw food bars, and chocolate macaroons. Can't wait for the main summer markets which occur outside at the beach.

J and I hosted my friend Nicole's birthday party Saturday night. We all contributed to the dinner so of course I voted myself to make the cake and salad. 

Wish I got an inside shot - 3 layers of vegan chocolate zucchini cake layered with coconut cream, covered in dark chocolate ganache. This cake is always a winner - so moist. 

Lots of fun! As always we get silly... the guys just laugh at us. 

J and me :)

We ate strawberry lime mousse cake with apricots and coconut crunch yesterday afternoon after a long hike through the forest. Yup, one of my best creations to this day I have to say.

Strawberries with a nice limey zing! Have never thought to pair the cake with apricots before but I got a bag of frozen apricot halves the other day and decided they would be a nice addition. I simple thawed and diced them.

Raw lasagna for dinner one night. Zucchini noodles, sun dried tomato sauce, marinated mushrooms, spinach and red pepper, all layered together with raw cheeze. Dollop of pesto on top. J absolutely loved it.

Gluten free pancake recipe coming up next!
