rise from your grave, my love, for we have much to do. the night has beckoned us again, a silver moon in view. place your hand in mine, my dear, and I shall lead the way. we'll glide above the fallen leaves and dance amongst decay. take heed of the horizon, my pet, it appears we must desist. the sun may rule the sky this mourn with mortals at its behest. embrace this sweet slumber, my love, we shall rest our immortal eyes. close the coffin lid and slumber now, for come night'
Hello, my lovelies. The celebration of amore falls upon us tomorrow. Love will be in the air and lovers will given to temptation and the like. As for me and my husband - we celebrate bit differently. One of our favorite places to be alone with one another is the cemetery. In the summer of 2010, my dearest husband actually proposed to me in one after surprising me with a romantic vegan picnic as the sun went down. He blindfolded me the entire time until I heard him pop the que
I am always baffled by the reactions that I get when I tell people that I make my own milks (actually "mylks"). "How do you make your own milk?" I gladly explain how. Then, it is followed by, "Wait....you make milk out of nuts and seeds??? How is that even possible? Milk comes from animals." *Insert sigh here* Again, I gladly explain how. And then comes the grand finale, "Well, that's great but that's too much work." On the contrary.....it is not that difficult nor does it re
The beautiful thing about pesto is how versatile yet simple that it is.....and what you can pair it with. I love pesto on avocado "toast" (my Raw Vegan Black Chia Seed and Sesame Bread), with thick slices of purple carrots, delicately wrapped around zucchini noodles, spread on two large portabella caps for a burger (vegan, oh course) or....just on your finger. Don't worry, it is not cannibalism...it just divine when you lick it off of your finger....admit it. Now....back to t
Black and orange. My ode to Halloween...my favorite celebration in my favorite month of the year: October. Whereas one longs and celebrates for that month only, I celebrate all year around...in my heart and in my home. My Raw Vegan PUMPKIN KING Nice Cream is one that Mr. Skellington would be quite pleased with, indeed. Rich in flavor thanks to a beautiful pairing of papaya, banana and pumpkin....and kissed with knife-cut chunks of Coconut Ash & Banana Dark Raw Chocolate from
In my family, there is much ado about everything...such a busy and bustling day that starts for me while the moon is out, the stars or cloud blanket the sky and the night is as dark and an onyx stone. 4am is when I rise and workout, while my hubby and little ones still slumber. As much as I plan for the day ahead the night before, as a mum of 2 little active boys ages 2 and 1, it is not surprise that things may change in the schedule. But I make sure to stick as much to the r
I like everything to be black: my clothing, my furniture....everything. If I can not find it, then what is the next best thing to do? Make it. So, take something sweet and luscious and make it as dark as night....be still, my heart. My OBSIDIAN MINT Nice Cream is one of the greatest things that I have created while dancing around to She's In Parties by Bauhaus. As a minimalist, I love when I create a dish that is simple and beautiful. Three ingredients, filling, full of magne
