  18. Sonyanijntje says:

    It all sounds great! But we’re gonna get all the recipes anyway right ;P, just not all on Mothersday and not all at once.
    But, if I think about what my mum would like most: this is my top 3:
    – Pancakes
    – Lemon squares
    – Strawberry Cheesecake Fruit-dip (With strawberries to dip in it… and chocolate ^-^ )

    And besides the recipe, I’m also curious about your anouncement (your own cookbook maybe? Can we win a copy??). And also looking forward to your giveaway, I’m excited (trying to stay put on my chair instead of jumping up and down)!!

  29. Nana says:

    They all sound wonderful, but if I have to list, lemon squares, sugar cookies and the Red Velvet Fudge cake. The Reeses Pieces Frosting sounds great too, which you have posted.
    Thanks for all of the wonderful healthy recipes. My daughter got me a flat of strawberries last night and one for herself. I made us each strawberry ice cream from your ice cream recipe, delicious. I made peanut butter/chocolate chip the other day, her family loved it and so did I.

  34. Erin says:

    Can you show how to make the cheesecake fruit dip? I teach middle school cooking and we are in our fruit unit and I would love to have a foods lab using your recipe! Healthy and vegan! I have told some of my students and co-workers about your awesome blog. I even put a link on the recipe section of my school website under my favorite foods.

    1. Sure thing!

      Strawberry-Cheesecake Dip

      3/4 cup Tofutti cream cheese (I used non-hydrogenated)
      6 strawberries (I used frozen, and thawed them so they’d blend but still make the sauce cold)
      1 tsp pure vanilla extract
      dry sweetener of choice, or NuNaturals stevia drops (I haven’t tried this with a liquid sweetener and worry it would be too runny.)

      Substitution notes: You can sub coconut butter for the tofutti cream cheese. You could probably also sub cashews (soak for a few hours, then drain and puree) or raw cashew butter.

      If you try any of the versions, I would really love to know how it goes! :)

      1. Oh, you can also add a little mori-nu silken-firm tofu (or plain silken tofu) if desired.

      2. Erin says:

        Thank you! I will let you know if 50, 13 year olds approve :)

      3. Erin says:

        The cheesecake dip was a hit with my middle schoolers. We used about 3 oz of the Tofutti and added 1/4 c of powdered sugar. We did use frozen thawed strawberries. It was given 2 thumbs up by my students. Thanks!!

      4. Aw thanks for coming back to let me know! I think the best part of having a blog is when someone actually makes what you post :).

  35. Lindsey says:

    Pancake recipe!

  36. Sarah says:

    Spaghetti sauce, please!! I love your recipes!

    Oh my goodness a Vitamix give-away?! That’s incredible. May I ask how you pick your winners for give-aways…is it a random drawing of names/entries or do you pick the best/your favorite post?! Thanks!

  41. Jenny Zilmer says:

    When can we expect the Red Velvet Cake recipe?

    1. Sorry lol I’m not sure. There are so many recipes I want to post! If you absolutely need the recipe before I post it, you can always email me for it! Sorry for the trouble!

  42. Just curious… have you posted the puppy chow recipe yet? I looked through your old posts and haven’t found it, but maybe youare just saving it for your cookbook? Thanks! :)

    1. I didn’t post it yet :(
      I can’t seem to find the recipe. Unfortunately, this happens to me too often, as I scribble my recipes down on tiny sheets of whatever paper is available (or even cardboard boxes) when I get an idea. I might have to try and re-create it when I get time, but I keep hoping the recipe will turn up somewhere.

  43. Sophie says:

    As far as I can tell you’ve only posted two of those so far. Don’t get me wrong, both of those recipes were great, but are you planning to post any others from that list?

    The red velvet fudge cake would beach appreciated!

    1. I just need to make that one again so I can photograph it! The photos I have are kinda ugly… Thanks for the reminder :)
