Happy Seasonal Sunday!!

Sorry to Anyone that tried to come link up last Sunday- I was hacked and shutdown for several days.

So Its spring. Its really spring- its getting a little warmer here in Rochester Ny. The last several mornings I was awoken by a piercing bright light in my eyes coming through our skylight above our bed. Its been wonderful- while its waking me a little earlier than I might intend- I’m grateful.

This week I would like to highlight a wonderful blog that I just recently discovered; Elegantly Gluten Free . Its writer Pat – is very sweet! Her site is sprinkled with Recipes, Information on Celiac Disease, and Safe Gluten Free Eateries. Last week she shared an recipe for Parsley Sauce! (I thought it was so clever).

There’s a lot going on this week at Real Sustenance- April in the Raw was launched here April 1st. (I shared a recipe for a Decadent 16 layer Cacao and Peanut Butter Raw Cake. And then Yesterday I had a wonderful guest post here from Robyn Boyd Author of Rawsome recipes. She shared her recipe for Rawsome Garden Burgers with raw Mayo and BBQ Sauce. And TODAY there will be a Smoothie recipe shared at the Bitt of Raw blog. So much healthy inspiration happening & I’m loving every minute of it! Check out the April in the Raw Page for more information- to follow along and to share some of YOUR recipes. (Everyone is invited to participate)

Today I thought I would carry  the raw theme into my Seasonal Sunday Recipe.  I have been experimenting some with Nut Cheeses- and from that exploration I came up with this fun little easy recipe.

Raw Grape Leaves Stuffed with Cucumber & Dill Spiced “Goat Cheese”

Now its YOUR turn to share..

Here are the rules..

  1. Recipes must contain one Seasonal Ingredient (See below for the list of foods that are currently in season)
  2. You may link up old or new recipes. Wonderful food is always worth sharing! Feel free to share up to 6 recipes each week.
  3. Gluten Free Recipes are NOT required- this event is meant to inspire ideas for all. However I do ask that if your recipe is Gluten Free that you give it the “GF” Label.
  4. Please include a link in your blog in reference to Seasonal Sundays so that your readers may also participate.

Thank you for featuring my blog this week! I'm so glad I found Seasonal Sunday — I love the idea of cooking what's fresh. This week I've linked Roast Chicken with Savory Vegetables — it has parsley, celery, onion, garlic, carrot and basil for flavoring. Whole foods, you might say, healthy for just about anyone, gluten-free or not.

Have a wonderful week!
