Ghost Pops (or Sunbutter Drops)

Naming these bad boys was a greater challenge than making them. My sister gave me a hand, with her customary hilarity: “Sunbutter balls does not sound good. Any other ideas?” “…All I am thinking of are not helpful names….Spooky balls. Holding in my laughter” (Which for her is a considerable feat). “Balls in general is […]

One Minute Recipes: Strawberry Coconut Freeze

Simple food is best. I think one of the biggest impediments to eating real, whole foods is that people are afraid of the kitchen & cooking. Sometimes I eat things that I want to share with you, but then feel silly because they are too simple to call a “recipe”. But since I’m really into […]

Chocolate Covered Coconut Orange Slices

I wanted to come up with a fancy name for these, but then I figured it would just be better to tell you like it is, even if the name is long. My friend asked me how I came up with this dessert idea, and I told her the following. I had recieved an orange […]

No Cook Chocolate Pudding

I’ve come to the conclusion that people like your blog more when there is dessert. This is slightly sad for someone who spends most of their time avoiding sugar and whose normal dessert is half a roasted sweet potato. BUT, once a week I enjoy some chocolate pudding. Three ingredients, no fuss, pure, velvety, smooth […]

Angel Hair Mushrooms

If you can get enoki mushrooms in your area, these make a great side dish. While my sister was visiting, we had them as a bed for lamb chops in coconut sauce, a stuffing for nori rolls, a topping for soup, and on their own. Mary came up with the name – Angel Hair Mushrooms. Delicate, crunchy, […]

Happy Halloween 2012: Pumpkin Sundaes

I hope you have a fun Halloween full of laughs and thrills. We had a great Halloween party with our International Club at school, where I debuted my homemade costume as a Spelling Bee. Tonight I’ll enjoy a special treat: This is my sweet potato soft cream in a roasted kabocha shell, drizzled with coconut […]

When Life Gives You Reduced Fat Coconut…

When life hands you reduced-fat coconut,  first allow yourself a moment of what the WHAT?! Just like low-fat dairy, bake sales for diabetes (true story, my brother witnessed one), and bagel heads, [warning: there are pictures of people post-surgery, not pictures of bagels!] it’s ok to take a moment and express utter perplexion at WHY […]

Addressing Your Sugar Demons

This week I’m off on a school trip to Okinawa, so I’ll be featuring what I like to call “The Sugar Series” while I’m traveling. I’m sorry in advance if I’m slow to reply to comments. Enjoy Part 1! Yes I am demonizing sugar. No I am NOT judging YOU or your food choices. I’m […]

Snak Pack Smackdown

Friends, I am in need of a mea culpa. I’m going to do my best and go for brevity. I sent people junk food. Packaged, junk food. It may be from Japan, and it may be super cute, but this was the final wake up call. I like to send care packages, and Japan is […]
