    by  • March 26, 2013 • books • 0 Comments

    I am so excited about the release of my friend Sue’s new book, “Food Fix:  Ancient Nourishment for Modern Hungers,” and I wanted to invite you to join me at her book signing on Saturday, March 30th, from 11-1 p.m at Nonesuch Books & Cards, located at 50 Market Street in the Mill Creek Shopping Center in South Portland.  SO FUN!

    I can’t wait for Saturday so I can dive right into this book.  Sue is so smart, funny and insightful about life, human nature and the struggles so many of us go through with food.  Rawsome, remarkable and inspiring are a few of the words that come to mind when I think of Sue–she’s a wonderful woman and the lessons she shares are certain to be valuable ones … so come on, let’s join my rawsome friend on the “Food Fix” journey.

    I am so proud of her & excited for her to share this book with the world!  And I will share my take on the book once I finish it.

    These are definitely a favorite at our house for special mornings … like snow days or sleepovers or brunch with friends.  ENJOY!


    2 cups almond flour  (or dried almond pulp from making almond milk)

    1 cup raisins

    1 vanilla bean, scraped

    ¼ tsp nutmeg

    2 Tbs cinnamon

    2 Tbs coconut oil

    2 Tbs agave or maple syrup

    1-3 Tbs orange juice

    Place all ingredients except orange juice in food processor & blend.  After 30 seconds, add in orange juice gradually, until mixture balls up & forms a dough.


    1/2 cup dates

    ¼ cup water

    1 Tbs cinnamon

    Blend everything until creamy in a food processor.  You may have to scrape the sides down several times.

    Sprinkle a little almond flour on counter & roll dough out to ¼ inch thick rectangle, approximately 8×4 inches.  Spread paste on top of dough & sprinkle with more almond flour. Score into 1 – 1 1/2 inch strips & gently roll them up.  Place in dehydrator for 2-3 hours–this step is optional.


    ½ cup cashews

    ½ cup water

    2 Tbs honey

    ½ vanilla bean, scraped

    Blend until smooth in high speed blender.  Top cinnamon bun with glaze & eat up or place glaze
    in dehydrator for ½ hour to warm up.
