View Full Version : I'm loving Alissa's book!

I've had it for a week now, and haven't tried too many recipes, but I've written down a bunch I want to try very soon. This week I made the chocolate mousse (with raw cacao powder instead of carob) and it was awesome! And tonight I made her Caesar dressing for my family - my husband loves Brianna's brand of Caesar dressing and I've been wanting to find a raw replacement for it that will satisfy him. I LOVED the dressing, and he said it was pretty good - but I think I'll have to keep looking for the one he will be willing to trade for his favorite...
What other recipes should I make sure to try soon?

I'm addicted to Mrs. Ackerly's dressing. I find it's better the 2nd day because the first day it has a strong onion flavor, that stays with you. lol. The 2nd day it still has the onion flavor but not as potent. It is sooooo goooood.
I'm so jealous...still waiting for my book.

The pad thai is great. So are the stuffed mushrooms, fudgy balls, and pizza.
Oh....almost forgot about the carrot/pecan burgers!

I have Alissa's Corn Chips in my dehydrator right now!!! There are just so many in the book that I love... One of my favorite recipes is Alissa's Eggplant Pizza!!! It's so simple to make and is satisfying!!! I know that you will soon find a favorite among the 300 recipes!!!

Try the Smooth and Creamy Avocado Dressing. It's the best dressing in the whole world.
Try the Mock Salmon Pate and the Kim-Chi, too. I like to spread Mock Salmon Pate on a nori sheet and put Kim-Chi on top of that and roll it up. Yum. You could put the same stuff in a lettuce leaf, too. Sometimes I put it in romaine or green leaf, but I prefer the nori.

The ones I keep making are:
carrot pecan burgers
and I love the banana cream pie (in the book by Ann Wigmore)
There are soooo many recipes!

Thanks for the ideas! I have banana crackers in the dehydrator right now, I know my 6 children are going to love them, and me too. I also plan to do the mock salmon pate soon, and I'll have to make sure and try the creamy avocado dressing for my hubby.
I did try the corn chips last week, and they were pretty good, but I wasn't sure if I had processed them enough because they were still pretty chewy. My husband suggested I put the corn in the blender next time to get a smoother texture.

You might also try adding some cucumber to the corn ship mix to make them crispy. Search for "rawfoodchef" and read her posts.
a must try recipe :)

I made the carrot cake yesterday..Awesome..it was so good. I had to keep tasting it over and over to make sure this was for real. Only thing..dont chop the carrots and walnuts too much..otherwise it becomes a pie..but still very..very..good.

Her calzone is wonderful.
Her pecan/carrot burgers are REALLY good.
These both freeze well too!
The spinach dip is VERY good - colorful too!
There are very little recipes in her book I didn't like. Her's is the best one out there. Have fun!
