Living in Vacationland (as Maine is sometimes known) has many perks! It’s easy to take it slow when there is so much beauty to grab your attention. As you know, Jaime is up at Moosehead Lake and we had an opportunity to make a short but sweet trip up to visit her! There was a lot to see, so much to do, and lots of wild foods to eat, including Sorrel, which you can learn more about in our newest video.
It was Bronwyn who pointed out the tasty treat growing throughout Jaime’s lakeshore lawn and we were happy to munch away on the sour then sweet green treat (rhymes!). Bronwyn told us how she used to munch on the stuff during recess as a kid and we were much more keen than her former playground companions to share some front yard delicacies.

In our ongoing effort to keep it cool we’ve created concocted new brews…
With a bit of almond milk, blueberries, and other sweet ingredients our Violet Tea has kept us cool. It also goes well with open-faced sandwiches and kale chips a la Kate Magic.

Here are the cakes in full view.
I love raw desserts. I want to eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I still can’t believe that I can have my cake and eat it too! I am starting to spread the word too. I just made this cake for my dad’s birthday. I used Heathy Pace‘s chocolate cake recipe from her “Just Desserts” e-book. She’s right the apple does make it super moist!! I gave it a shot and tried the coconut whipped cream. A perfect finishing touch! You can see it dolloped on top. This cake was puuurrrfect with fresh strawberries and frosting that can fool any greasy spoon regular with a little bit of avocado cacao and agave! I topped it off with some fresh banana ice cream too.
Happy Birthday Dad!
Here is another cake I made. An ice cream cake this time and my own recipe!
The top is banana ice cream with a brownie layer underneath. I tried any phyo’s recipe for coconut ice cream and added my own little twist with FRESH nutmeg, ginger, and almonds. The bottom is carob, raisins, and pecans. Please stay tuned for a full recipe in our recipe section! The pictures of the cake are a little blurry, my apologies.
I am loving it up on Moosehead. Please stay tuned for more updates!
Much love Jaime
