Happy Seasonal Sunday! But.. More importantly HAPPY EASTER to those of you that celebrate!

This week.. I’m keeping it short and sweet. Its 2:00 am at the moment. And well. I’m a little tired :) (Its been a busy day!)

This week I would like to highlight the following FANTASTIC recipes from last week:

Avocado- Spinach Soup in Mini Bread Bowls from Gluten Free Cat
Sauerkraut/Cabbage Brownies  from  Mysteries Internal
Lemony Slaw from Hunter’s Lyonesse
Vegan Gluten and Refined Sugar Free Raspberry Dessert Bars from Without Adornment


This week I’m sharing a variation of a recipe I created a few months back- it keeps on with the Raw theme for the April in the Raw.

2 Layer Mango- Kiwi Raw Cheesecake (Gluten/Dairy/Corn/Soy/Egg Free, Vegan)



Speaking of April in the Raw.. You may be interested in checking out the first 3 weeks worth of recaps:(Each includes photos and links to the recipes shared:  Week 1 , Week 2, Week 3 . Every recipe shared so far as been FAN-Freakin-Tastic. It will be well worth your time to quickly peak through! :)

Brittany, that cheesecake looks divine! If my mom didn’t already have dessert planned for tomorrow I would make this!

I am so obsessed with Swiss Chard and Kale right now! This recipe I am sharing is a Garlic Sauteed Swiss Chard with Noodles. I threw it together awhile ago, but have made it several times since and I love it. It is full of flavor. :)

Hi! That Sesame Spring Salad is GF. I was so excited that I got to share that I forgot to put that.
Thanks for your beautiful work with this blog! Reid

Oh how you tempt me with your cheesecake, Brittany! One of these days I WILL make it!


Heather@GF Cat April 24, 2011 at 7:21 pm

Thank you, sweet friend! I’m sad that I have nothing to link up this week! I’ve been creating, playing, and finally enjoying this raw thing. No time for posting! :) Can’t wait to see you!!!!
