Today is DAY 1 for me of 100% raw. I am doing pretty good. I have tried 3 of Alissa's recipes so far-2 dressings--which I liked, and I tried the recipe for Alfredo. I did not like this at all. :(
What are your favorite recipes from the book---the ones you make over and over? Or, do you have any that you have found that you make over and over and really enjoy?

Blueberry Cheesecake and her Marinara Sauce are my favorites.

Pesto stuffed mushrooms and the calzone. Worth the effort. Also, search on the forum for Tropigal's crunchy chewy garlicky toasts. Great!

chili w/onion dip
onion dip w/ baby carrots
nacho cheese but blended in blender, non-dehydrated and w/ jalapeņo added.
rye bagels (I add some water and make thin flat cracker/bread instead of bagels)
These are the 3 most made recipes. There are lots more that I like but I just LOOOOOOVE these!
eta: although I haven't made this in ages, the date nut torte is WONDERFUL and so easy to make. The best desert that I have tried (I haven't tried them all though) from the book.

although fudge i blend up macadamias to make a butter instead of almonds. macadamias are my first choice for everythjing because they are so fatty and rich and creamy and nutty and ohhhhhh so yyumyu
If this is the beginning of raw for you then it will take a little time for your tastes to adjust to eating this way. It took me almost a month. Now I love fruits and veggies that I didnt like before and I crave raw foods. I ate a lot of fruit (especially bananas), smoothies, and salads in the beginning because thats all that tasted good to me. I like the Ceasar dressing recipe in Alissa's book and there are also some great dressing threads in this forum. My personal favorite is olive oil, lemon juice, sea salt, and chopped italian parsley.
My fav Alissa recipes are
date nut torte
mock salmon pate
pizza but I use calzone crust recipe to make pizza crust
cinnamin raisin bread

cant remember the exact name of it but i think its cucumber dill soup? anyways, its amazing! and i recently made the salt and vinegar chips which far surpassed my expectations! those things are almost as good as they were cooked! and i actually enjoy them more!
So far...I am absolutely in love with Alissa's Beanless Falafels.
I wrap them up in a savoy cabbage leaf with hummus, tomato and cucumber...YUMMMM!!
Even my Hubby, who is not raw and loves the s.a.d. version says they are great. :D
