Layered Berry Cheesecake – Raw!

Who wants berry cheesecake for breakfast? Or lunch? Or dinner? I do! I went to an 8am yoga class, so I’m just gonna consider this a smoothie in layered cake form. Once upon a time, in a city far far away, I bought a springform pan to make cheesecake for a guy I liked. The…

Raw Strawberry Shortcake

If these lovely treats could talk, what they would be saying  would be the beginning of an @lizzobeeating song “Mirror mirror on the wall, don’t say it because I know I’m cute” A slightly healthier take on strawberry shortcake, or so I tell myself.  Raw, vegan, and sweetened with dates and maple.  While cold and frozen foods…
