the breakfast cakes
there's a parfait thing with cashew cream that my oldest made that was DIVINE
the bread with the burger with the sundried tomato catsup with lettuce and tomato is just heavenly
There, that should get you started!;)

I love the coconut breakfast cakes.

The bread is RaWsOmE. Althought I now have to find a sub for the sunnies, anyone have any suggestions?

I just bought and read her book. I thought it was really good. I want to make the donut holes!
12-14-2007, 09:05 AM

they are superb!!!

A friend and I were looking through it today, and I know there is a cake in there I am making. I also want to make that black sesame seed bread (if I can find some black sesame seeds...any clue??)
I'll look up the donut holes...
SHINE: I was really looking at the parfait....does that cream get creamy...I THINK she used almonds....maybe I'm wrong. There was something that looked like it was supposed to be creamy, but she used almonds....IT WAS PUDDING....HOW DOES that get creamy??

The parfait does use almonds and looks soooo good. I need to go shopping for ingredients. I am so lazy about shopping for and making recipes.

Hi Wendi, I like the ginger almond paste which I spread on the raw nori sheets (those sea vegetables!) and then added whatever vegetable.
12-17-2007, 12:18 PM
CHEEZECAKE!!! It is now a staple in our home. Here's a pic... we added the strawberry swirl and we top it with more strawberry swirl (just strawberries and agave blended) and it is DEVINE!

There are so many delish recipes.....I love the breakfast cakes and ginger almond nori rolls (as have been mentioned), banana raisin oatmeal, save the tuna paté, black sesame Asian slaw with ginger cashew mayo, wilted spinach salad with marinated onions in mustard seed dressing....
These, along with all the previous suggestions should keep you occupied! Enjoy!

Where in the WORLD do you find BLACK SESAME SEEDS???
I've looked. Are they bulk, maybe I'm supposed to look where they find the seeds in plastic bags seeled like Arrowhead Mills???
Thanks you guys, I'm gonna keep looking at her recipes to see what I have on hand to make TONIGHT!!

Had the coconut lemon bars and they are worth $1,000 bucks ! no kidding ! Joz

I got my black sesame seeds at my health food store....the brand is Health Matters, and they come in a package. It was a fluke though....I just happened to notice one bag in the section with the packaged nuts, gogi berries, dried cherries, etc.

Shell....:rolleyes: I hate it when that happens! I have found something on the shelf before and went back 2 weeks later thinking I could buy it from there and NO...GONE:o
I'll keep looking, until then, I guess I can use white sesame seeds???
12-17-2007, 11:00 PM
i am absolutely addicted to the CREAMY CURRY SAUCE!!! Really, i can practically have it every day :D
i also really liked corn chowder!
12-23-2007, 05:49 PM
I have her book in front of me, the Black Sesame Sunflower Bread and she says, "The recipe calls for black sesame seeds, but tan seeds will work fine too." So I'm wondering if the black is more for looks? Anyway, I'm firing up my food processor and making the bread right now...yum!
12-23-2007, 07:25 PM
I made the Black Sesame Sunflower Bread a couple of day ago. It is very good & easy. Next time though, I'm going to grind up all the flax seeds instead of using some of them hole. I also might add a few sun dried tomatoes & herbs. I really want to try the Corn Chowder (Tomorrow) & the pancakes!
12-24-2007, 10:08 PM
I bought the book I liked it so much. One of my favourites is her Sweet Corn Chowder and her Apple Pie, her curry dressing and the one with Kefir Lime leaves in it.
12-24-2007, 11:49 PM
What a hoot. I just got her book from the library too :)
I have not had a change to try the recepies, but i have my eye on a few dishes:cool:

I got my black sesame seeds at an Asian grocery store in the Asian section of the market. It looks really neat in her sesame cracker recipe.
First I got her book from the library over and over again to keep trying more recipes.
Merry Christmas to everyone.
12-26-2007, 12:39 PM
I might buy her book too! I received some money for Christmas, and I haven't decided what to do with it yet.
Gosh that all sounds so yummy! My mouth is watering.
12-27-2007, 05:01 PM
I'm so glad you included pics! I have this book and although I love the bread...my husband can't stand me when I eat the onions. :o
The pancakes are like a staple in my diet now. I have them for a meal at least 4 times a week. I top mine with berries. ;)
I'm going to go search my book right now for the donut holes...and strawberries and cream. Thanks for starting this post. And for all the pics!

Her cheezecake has become a staple food in our house (for better or worse) ~ it's that good. ;)
12-27-2007, 05:06 PM
I forgot...her ketchup recipe...I added some extra water just until it was the right consistancy, added a huge amount of basil and it tasted a lot like the tomato/basil soup they sell at our pizza hut. To me it was divine and so much like what I am used to in a cooked soup. If you made the bread extra crispy...you could have soup and crackers. :)
