Time for the first ever giveaway contest on The Blenderist! I’m giving away $50 worth of digital clipart and printables from my Éclair de Lune shop on Etsy. If you are a blogger or crafter, you will want to get in on this giveaway!
Dear Cookie Butter, We have to talk. I managed to avoid you for so long. You see, I live in Canada so I can’t shop at Trader Joe’s on a regular basis. It was distance that kept us apart for so long. Then, one day I was at a local gourmet shop and saw you on the shelf, a beautiful jar of Biscoff spread.
If you are not Canadian, the name of this recipe might leave you scratching your head. What the heck is a “Nanaimo”? Nanaimo is a city on Vancouver Island. My mom was born there. One of Nanaimo’s greatest claims to fame is the Nanaimo Bar. A traditional Nanaimo Bar is an intensely sweet treat, commonly sold in bakeries and coffee shops. My Nanaimo Bar Pie is an homage, but not a replica of the original recipe. My version has been adapted to be a healthier alternative; it is gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free and primarily raw.
I am thrilled to announce my first media feature. Redbook has posted my Raw Vegan Lemon Cheesecake in a round-up of Paleo-friendly desserts. Mine is the last one in the slideshow, but they said it “might just be the best thing we’ve discovered this week. ” Proud moment!
