behind the scenes of my coobook


Okay, homies. Today I am keeping it simple and visual.  I've put together a collection of pictures from all my photo shoots over the past two and half months as I've been writing my raw dessert cookbook (out March 2014; Page Street Publishing). Most of them are simply ingredients used or objects I found interesting, and a few capture recipes that will be in my book. Oh - and there's a couple of me being silly because I know how much you love to see my weird face. I hope you like the behind-the-scenes vibe today! Let me know what you think.

    What I am thinking?

    The most consuming thought: That I want to eat those filled choclates. Now.
    And have a taste of all of the desserts, they look exciting for my taste buds.

    And then I think that this blog is so inspiring making me want to stop eating so much "ingredients" (for example first fruit and then some nuts and then some, etc, you get the picture) and instead do more (un)cooking making proper meals or desserts out of it, because you make it seem so easy and effortless to create amazing food.
    And then I think that wow, that girl look so darn healthy, her life must be working really well and I want to eat more like she does.

    Oh, and after this post, I start feeling like I maybe should consider buying the cookbook. ;) Oh, those chocolates.. ;)

    I can agree with all three points of Natalyn and I'd like to know, whether the cookbook will be available in Germany? If not, I'll find a way to get it anyway. ;-)
    I made your Banana and Berries Ice Cream Cake the other day, and both my boyfriend and I loved it. The temperature is getting hot now in Germany too, and there is nothing better than cooling of with some fruity, natural treats.

  24. Many thanks for creating the effort to talk about this, I feel strongly about this and like studying a great deal more on this subject. If feasible, as you gain knowledge, would you mind updating your website with a great deal more info? It’s very helpful for me.

  25. Wow! I can't wait for your cookbook to come out. How exciting!

    I am new to the world of raw vegan (un)baking and wanted to let you know that you inspired me to start experimenting. This is my third attempt: http://thislittlegreenpocket.com/2013/08/04/a-raw-vegan-take-on-the-snickers-bar-2/

    Not as pretty as your stuff but you have set the bar very high :)
