I have decided to take the plunge and buy a website for my food journalings. Please check it out if you are visiting this blog.
It features recipes consisting of whole foods and few ingredients, for the purpose of offering sustenance healthy for most individuals. I have honed in my photographic style so it is more streamline.
Also, I have began developing healthy living tutorials based solely off my experiences, encounters and research.
Lastly, the website will soon have a portfolio of food/health related photo studies!
As you can see I am very excited for this creative outlet forming and coming alive. If you visit, I hope you enjoy your experience.
As always, I am revamping, evolving and making room for growth.

Incredible Chocolate Cake
Ingredients: Gluten Free Mama’s Almond Blend Flour, cashew cream, Valrhona chocolate, Almond Milk, agave nectar, cocoa powder, Earth Balance, OrgaN no egg, baking soda, salt
Method: Mix dry ingredients(excluding chocolate)
Melt Earth Balance. Melt chocolate in a double boiler.
Stir in wet ingredients.
Coat baking dish/pan with cocoa powder. Fold in batter.
Bake at 350 for approximately 25 to 30 minutes.
Note: Earth Balance is a vegan butter replacement which is delicious. Cashew cream is a cream replacement that is made by soaking raw plain cashews in water overnight and then put in a blender. It is rich and has great texture.
Note: For those of you wondering about the increments, which I am sure is plenty; considering a true recipe includes measurements. At this time, I do not have this information to share. My boyfriend made this lovely cake, eyeballing the ingredients and it turned out superb. He is very talented. Next time we make it, I will be sure to jot down measurements.
If you have searched more of my posts, I am sure you have recognized this is my style in a way to not include complete recipes. I learned much about cooking and am still learning, by trial and error and by trusting my palate and instincts. Also I have learned through creatively and purposely veering from recipes. I understand with baking, that this is another story to some degree. It is important to have an appropriate amounts of ingredients going into the oven. So, this is why I will be back with more information in the near future.
Thank you for your interest. I am sure there are many individuals out there that can take this guideline of a recipe and round it out with their own love, talent and energy!
