are you SERIOUS? ONLY THREE??? AAACCCKKKK... :eek:
ENCHILADAS ... even my SAD carnivore friends ask me to make this -its FABULOUS!
Pizza ... all the recipes are wonderful and the crusts can also be used for wraps!
Marina sauce with zuchinni pasta
Basil pesto sauce with zuchinni pasta
Fettucini Alfredo -- OMG... amazing...
(both of these are wonderful quick and delicious meals)
two other quick staples...
Flax seed crackers....
I love these both - and even thou they are quick easy recipes - they have become a staple in my house - I always have fudge balls in my fridge - dh loves them ~ and they hit the spot when I just want a little yummy treat here and there. The flax seed crackers can be used with SOO much stuff... plus they're just great to munch on throughout the day! QUITE delicious!
sorry... just can't do 3....
and I'm not even mentioning the blue berry cheesecake and ... and... and... stuffed portabella mushroom caps, and the raspberry banana creme pudding pie!! and... and.... :eek:

Oh yes, only picking out 3 is hard!
Black Forrest Cake
Mock Salmon Pate
How about a few more...
Pecan Pie (YUMMY!)
As you can see I mostly like desserts when it comes to uncooking.

I'm too tired to think, but I can tell you the thing I have made the most are the crab cakes. YUM.

3...Pesto stuffed mushrooms
The Chili is outstanding!
12-03-2007, 10:23 AM
OOOHHHH YEAH BABY!
cayenne lemon ginger shot.(I think that's what it's called)...I love this for fasting times AND to heat up when it's cold
ummmm....let me think
banana flax crackers...my kids loved these with easy cashew butter on top with bananas drizzled with honey or agave....I'll tell you this is like dessert!!
That's what I can think of now.
I agree with Starfire: my SAD eaten mom requested for me to bring these back over to her house, and leave the leftovers!!!

I have one favorite right now I have't tried lot of recipes yet, but I love the Mac Cream Cheeze. I divided it up in three different bowls and added different spices, etc and now have three great spreads from one. It is wonderful on a tomato half, whether little cherry toms or a plum tomato or big tomoatoe slices, it is so yummy. I took some to work with me last night.
My favorite food right now is apple slices, and celery sslices with agave and almond butter. I could eat this all the time. Plus, I love sliced bananas with clementine wedges with a sprinkling of coconut. So good!
Sorry, I promise I will try some more of Alissa's recipes, maybe this evening I have a night off from work. I'm struggling with spelling, it happens when I'm tired, I need to get to bed.:D

I love the French Dressing on my salads in the morning. I just wish that the Cold Pressed Flax Seed Oil did not cost so much. :(
12-03-2007, 12:54 PM
carrot cake! nice and easy and delicious!
12-03-2007, 01:42 PM
The nacho cheese was the recipe I was looking for! :D (sorry for the spam here, guys!)
Can anybody let me know this delicate secret?
The enchiladas look soooo rawlicious! I wish I could try them one time (saw them on goneraw)...
12-03-2007, 03:23 PM
I made the berry soup this morning. SO GOOD
12-03-2007, 05:02 PM
I know it's only one, but it's my absolute favourite. Must try!!

Only three--that is a tough one.
Butternut squash noodles with golden curry sauce, Indian Spinach dip (great adoration for this one), pesto stuffed mushrooms (use portobella's).
So very many others that I adore including the calzone (the recipe makes REALLY awsome crusts for pizza, too) and Pad Thai. Oh so hard to put limits--she has sooo many great recipes encompassing such a wide variety of cuisines it's hard to pick just a couple.
12-03-2007, 10:05 PM
okay, okay, feel free to list more than three if you want. I'm going to print out this list and use it as a guide for where to start first in my culinary explorations of Alissa's book.
12-03-2007, 11:22 PM
Oh my goodness my mouth is watering... those recipes sound just fantastic!!! :D I can't wait to get Alissa's book (Supposed to be coming Wednesday) !! :) :)

Almond Butter Balls
Carrot Pecan burgers(I used almonds, didn't have pecans at the time)
12-04-2007, 09:12 AM
Oh..I forgot about the carrot pecan burgers. Awesome!!!
12-04-2007, 01:45 PM
my favorite is the blueberry cheesecake recipe.
except I make it with strawberries.
it's really amazing how creamy and dairy-like this is.

Woohoo! Okay-expanding on the three--
Marinara is awsome with the sauce or with wider noodles and alfredo (I add a couple gratings of nutmeg and thin the sauce a little). Could be another addiction recipe.
Alissa's calzone may seem like a difficult recipe--just break it down and make it. It is absolutely awsome. I had leftover crust ingredient so dehydrated into individual size pizza shape--oh my so very good with your favorite toppings.
Mock salmon and sunny pates are also tops on my list. Pipe them into hollowed out cherry tomatoes and/or Belgium endive leaves or spread on cucumber rounds--soo delicious.
Love the broccoli soup--can add ingredients to make it a cheesy brocolli soup very easily. The nachos cheese recipe is awsome stuffed into chilis and dehydrated. Marinated greens are at first okay, but get a lot better than okay as you continue eating them.
Carrot burgers (I like better undehydrated) are a nice change in menu, Pad Thai (with any alterations you prefer) is awsome with adding cilantro and a squeeze of lime. Oh! Rawviolies are unbelievable. Don't make them often, but oh what a treat. Waldorf salad is also very tasty.
Sorry I really don't make too many of the desserts as usually am quite satisfied with fresh fruit.
Alissa's DVD and book REALLY got me on track with raw. So simple yet so tasty.
Wishing you the best success and enjoyment from the recipes you choose for your raw journey.

Okay, I think I'll start by making either the pasta marinara or the enchiladas because a lot of people mentioned those. Thanks for all your suggestions. I have so many to try, and I'll use your suggestions as a launching pad. It's a little frustrating at the moment because I can't try them right away. I have four more days on the master cleanse. Soon enough, though. I'll have to wait a little longer.
