A Peach Cobbler For Stevie Wonder

The last pie I made was not a “pie” per say, but a cobbler. In some circles, cobblers made with pie crust and a filling are considered a pie, or really resemble a pie. My cobbler was a peach cobbler, and it had all of the makings of a pie—peaches tossed with sugar, a little cinnamon, salt, and flour. I poured the mixture into a pie tin and topped it with my cinnamon and sugar cookie-pie crust, brushed with a little coconut oil, sprinkled with more cinnamon, then baked to bubbly stewed fruit, golden perfection. 

Let’s be honest, it definitely was not the prettiest, but in my book, that’s ok. As long as it looks like what it’s supposed to be, and more importantly, if it evokes emotions, excites the tastebuds, and contains functional ingredients, I am happy and my work is done. 

This is the story of my very first Peach Cobbler, and it was made especially for THE legendary Mr. Stevie Wonder. SUpon receiving the order, I had never eaten or made a peach cobbler. So, I did a bit of research, delved into my recipe arsenal, drew a little picture, said a little prayer, snapped my fingers, mixed in some love, and voila—out popped my peach cobbler from the steamy hot oven. Served warm with vanilla ice cream, it was beautiful.

Now I call this special thing Peach Cobbler Pie. I have so much fun testing new recipes, and when I get it right, it’s so satisfying. Icing on the cake is when clients send me photos and tell me their feedback. It fills my heart with joy. This is why I love my job. 

“Stevie loved, loved, loved the peach cobbler. It was a hit. Amazingly delicious. You must add to your menu list! it was the best. Not too sweet or soupy, not overly crusty, JUST RIGHT. I’ll order it AGAIN.”

Enchanted Fairy Garden Party

Natasha, (click here to visit her incredible Instagram!), hired us to create another themed dessert table. This time, for her daughter… an enchanted fairy garden party!

Enchanted Fairy Party

As always, she requested that everything be made with organic, vegan, gluten-free, soy-free ingredients, natural colors and flavors, and to have a reduced amount of sugars while using primarily Whole Foods. We used Harry’s Berries Gaviota Strawberries – the best strawberries in the world – and India Tree colors, turmeric, and blue spirulina to color the treats.

Coming up with ideas for food using Pinterest really helped bring this dessert table to life. Here is what we came up with…

Birthday cake 
6” 2-layered Carob Cake with Chocolate Frosting & Strawberries
9” 2-layered Carrot Cake with Walnuts
12” 2-layered Vanilla Cake with Vanilla Frosting & Strawberries
3-tiered Pink Ombre & Flowers Birthday Cake
Nut-free Carob Log Cake, Chocolate Strawberries

Used all Harry’s Berries – Gaviota strawberries

Twigs & Berries 

Magic Fairy Drops Donut Tower – baked donuts dipped in housemade white chocolate and vegan sprinkles.

Pixie Dust Popcorn – coconut oil popped corn, drizzled with housemade white chocolate and vegan rainbow sprinkles.

Vegan donut tower

Moss Cookies  – sugar cookies with a hint of lemon, coated with a thin icing, covered with pulverized and green-colored coconut shreds.

Flowery Fruit Bites – kiwi, raspberry, & mint.

Magic Wands – blueberries and watermelon.

Magic Mushrooms – vegan marshmallows, strawberries.

Forest Logs – fruit leather strips.

Chipmunk Chips in Basket with Moss – plantain banana chips.

Enchanted Forest Seeds – bliss balls: hazelnut chocolate truffles, goji cranberry coconut truffles (recipes here and on my app!)

Vegan bliss balls

Gnome Made Granola Cups with Honeysuckle Cream – my granola recipe with more date paste to stick the cups together, baked in mini cupcake pans, with spooned in yogurt, berries, and mint.

vegan gluten free granola

Mud and Dirt Cups – avocado, banana, date-based chocolate pudding with dirt made from carob, date, almonds, and vanilla, and topped with a mint leaf.

vegan mud dirt dessert cups

Morning Dew – cucumber mint spring water & Pixie Punch – strawberry lemonade.

Watermelon House – fairy house made of watermelon.

For each party and project, I like to include a sketch in my proposal. From merely an idea to Instagram-ready…

Hazelnut Chocolate Coconut Truffles

Hazelnut Chocolate Coconut Truffles

Hazelnut Chocolate Coconut Truffles

As many of you requested on Instagram, here is my Hazelnut Chocolate Coconut Truffles recipe (a vegan & gluten-free dessert!).

Ingredients:

1 cup hazelnuts, toasted

1 cup almond meal

1/2 cup cacao powder

3/4 tsp sea salt

1 1/2 cup medjool dates, pitted

1/4 cup filtered water

3 tsp vanilla extract

2 Tbsp maple syrup

1 1/2 cup shredded coconut

Hazelnut Chocolate Coconut Truffles

Method:

Note: If you can’t get medjool dates that are caramel-like in texture and only ones that are pretty dry, soak in filtered water overnight then drain before using in recipe.

In a food processor, add in toasted hazelnuts, almond flour, sea salt, 1/2 cup shredded coconut, cacao powder, and process until finely ground, for at least a minute.

Add the pitted dates and water, and process until it comes together.

Taste. If it needs more sweetness, add more dates (or maple syrup one tablespoon at a time).

Line a quarter-sheet pan with parchment paper.

Place the coconut shreds in a bowl. Scoop a tablespoon of the truffle mixture, roll them into balls, dropping them into the coconut. A few at a time, then toss the balls in the bowl to coat. This is so easy, it’s silly!

Should make about 2.5 dozen. Enjoy immediately or refrigerate and enjoy later. Best when chilled and shared with the homies. ☺❤❤

Voila! A sophisticated and deliciously satisfying treat made with whole foods . Happy weekend, my friends. 🧚‍♀️✨💫

Fire Balls – housemade white chocolate-dipped marshmallows with naturally-colored sprinkles

I even made the back splash (don’t ask me how, it just came together), cake stands, food and ingredient labels, and a match stick box.  It was so much fun!  Thanks again to Natasha and family for allowing us into your home to feed your family more wholesome sweets and snacks.  It was a true pleasure!

Truly a labor of love – from design concept to the finest details in execution. Joy. Love. That’s why I do what I do. That’s what life’s about. Well, to me at least. And I give everything my best to spread this love and joy. It’s the best feeling.

Blueberry Muffins with Mia

6174658256_IMG_3490

It took the Florida hurricanes to bring my whole family together–my mom, my 5 older sisters, their 17 kids, and me!  For 2 weekends, I was blessed to be able to see my family in San Diego for an impromptu family reunion.

Aside from being a top student, amazing tennis player, singer, guitarist, and artist, Mia, my oldest niece who lives in Florida is a skilled baker and avid YouTube recipe video watcher.  We thought it would be fun to bake together and to collaborate on a baking video.  Since her grandma’s (my mom) favorite morning pastry is a blueberry muffin, we decided to make grandma a healthier muffin, Auntie Bon Bon-style, which means the muffins were vegan, gluten-free, free of refined sugar, and organic!  I showed her how to make my special muffins, we took turns filming each other, and Mia painstakingly chose the music and edited videos for both YouTube and Instagram.  I think she did a mighty fine job. #ProudAuntie

I missed her this Thanksgiving, and can’t wait for her to get back to California around Christmas so we can film more fun recipes together!

Find the full recipe, below!

 

Blueberry Muffins

Time: 40 minutes

Yield: 8 – 9  muffins

Muffin Ingredients:

Dry Ingredients

1/4 cup oat flour, gluten-free

2/3 cup potato starch

1/4 cup arrowroot, ground

 

1 tsp xanthan gum

1.5 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 cup coconut palm sugar

lemon zest from 2 lemons

Wet Ingredients

2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/2 cup almond butter

1/2 cup water

1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

2 Tbsp flax meal

1 tsp vanilla extract

Other Ingredients

2 cups fresh organic blueberries

Crumb Topping Ingredients:

1 cup rolled oats

2 Tbsp oat flour

1 cup coconut sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

1/4 tsp sea salt

 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, add in the dry ingredients and whisk together to combine.
  3. Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients and in a separate small bowl, combine all of the wet ingredients.
  4. Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and mix until almost combined.
  5. Add in the fresh blueberries and with a rubber or silicone spatula, fold into the muffin batter.
  6. Take 2 cupcake molds and line, in a staggered fashion, cupcake liners. Spray with coconut cooking spray so the muffin and crumb do not stick to the pan after baking and at removal.
  7. Using an ice cream scoop, fill the liners with a heaping scoop of blueberry muffin batter.  Then press on the crumb.
  8. Bake for 35-40 minutes at 350 degrees F (all ovens vary, but stick a toothpick in it to check for doneness.  If it comes out clean, it’s done).
  9. Allow the muffins to sit for at least 10 minutes before removing them from the pan.  Enjoy!

Arugula and Persimmon Salad

2015-10-20 13.43.31

When I was a kid and my mom gave me a persimmon to try for the very first time, I was surprised it didn’t taste like a tomato, as persimmons very much resemble tomatoes. As I observed closely, there were specks of brown in the fruit—almost as if God/theUniverse had sprinkled the fruit with cinnamon and it was naturally occurring, embedded into the fruit. Hence, my initial childhood conclusion that cinnamon derived from per”cinnamon”s—hello, it’s in the name, duh! As I grew perplexed and analyzed that it was probably a silly idea since we had cinnamon sticks to stir hot apple ciders and Mexican hot chocolates with, and we actually had to ground cinnamon sticks to add into recipes I thought, “what a coincidence” and how beautiful of God to just sprinkle fruit with cinnamon and make a star shape design for us to see (when slicing the fruit horizontally). I just left it at that—a coincidence and viewed them as two separate things. Besides, how in the world would one be able to extract specks of cinnamon from the persimmons. Oh silly, silly me!

Fast forward 30 years when I had my twin nephews try persimmons for the first time, I told them the story I just shared with you, and they asked where cinnamon came from. Since I never looked it up, I turned to one of my fave instructional learning tools, @youtube 🙊🙈😁, and we learned that cinnamon is made from the barks of trees, rolled up by people in a forest (well at least the people in a forest in the video we watched). It’s a very timely process and I could not believe how much effort it takes to make and how cheap and available it is to us. I will never look at cinnamon and persimmons the same again, especially knowing now that they are mutually exclusive.

Moving on, although persimmons and cinnamon are both in season right now, this salad only contains persimmons. It’s a family and friend favorite this time of year. Make it for the holidays, for your parents when they come to visit, for a date, or treat yourself. It is super super simple, and contains the following ingredients: arugula, ripened and crisp persimmons, dates, shallots, #marconaalmonds, an easy soft cashew cheese, #saba, and sea salt and pepper.

I hope you try this recipe and enjoy it!

Arugula and Persimmon Salad

Servings: 4-6

Prep Time: 20 minutes (not counting the time it takes to make the cheese. With cheese, one day.)

Ingredients

2-3 bags pre-washed baby arugula

4 crunchy fuyu persimoons, peeled, stem removed, and sliced into 8ths

1/2 cup marcona almonds

1/2 shallot, sliced very thin

3 dates, sliced very thin

handful crumbled goat cheese (you can use this vegan goat cheese recipe sans the cranberry and dill, and when you blend it, add 3 Tbsp agar agar flakes)

2 super ripe and juicy persimmons, stem and peel removed

saba (aged balsalmic), as needed

sea salt, as needed

freshly ground black pepper, as needed

Directions

1. Spread the arugula onto a serving platter.

2. Season with a dash or two of sea salt and pepper.

3. Tuck into the leaves bits of shallot, dates, marcona almonds, persimmon wedges.

4. Sprinkle on vegan goat cheese.

5. In a bowl, place the super ripe and juicy persimmon flesh.  Stir it up a bit as if you are going to use it as a sauce.  Using a spoon, in a circular motion, add the persimmon flesh as you would a dressing.

6. Finish off with a drizzle of saba.
