Answer me this!

I am going to my first ever raw food event!! My fiances are limited due to recent life changes, but I am super excited to have scrimped to attend my first event! I hope to see some of you there!!!

I was searching and came across this questionnaire and can't for the love and life of me remember where I found it!!!

1. Favorite home-made nut (non-dairy) milk? Almond Maca Mylk or Hempseed Vanilla

2. What are the top 3 dishes/recipes you are planning to make? Um... I'm thinking of making Shannonmarie's "better than peanut butter donuts" with my own version of cream cheese frosting. Alissa's Spinach/Cheese Calzones (sprouting the buckwheat as I type), and a huge batch of superfood cacao brownies.... they transport me to ecstatic bliss in one bite!

4. Most disastrous recipe/meal failure? Everything I make taste great!... NOT!!! I made a terrible avocado/miso soup. It was soooooooo horrifying. I couldn't even swallow one spoonful. And all I kept thinking was... "goddess! what a waste of avocados!"

5. Favorite pickled item? I'm going to have to agree, "Raw pickles, of course"

6. How do you organize your recipes? I try not to get too worried about organization b/c I can become a bit of a compulsive freak... I have a cute recycled pink journal by Greenroom Eco. and I just have them listed in there... I go thru it for inspiration. And I save some in my favorites online. I have scattered post-its in my raw cook books

7. Compost, trash, or garbage disposal? Learning more about composting... just starting out.

8. If you were stranded on an island and could only bring 3 foods...what would they be? I would have to take Avocados, Cacao, Dulse, Bananas..... oh wait.... they did say only three

9. Fondest food memory from your childhood? Watching all the women in my family prepare for a Sunday dinner in New Orleans... community, family, laughter. I didn't really love food that much and was pretty much veggie as a child so there are no real memories of the taste of food, but memories of the times we spent together. And now I dream of having a community of friends who love raw food.

10. Favorite raw ice cream? I don't have an ice cream maker... I keep it simple... .frozen bananas/ maca/ cacao/ cacao nibs/ bit of agave... simple perfection.

11. Most loved kitchen appliance? vitamix any day... anytime

12. Spice/herb you would die without? Wouldn't die without any, but I LOVE fresh basil... and fresh parsley.. okay okay they asked for ONE.

13.Recipe (Cook) book you have owned for the longest time? Um.... lost some in hurricane Katrina... but Vegan with Vengeance.

14. Favorite flavor of jam/jelly? Strawberries in the food processor with a dab of honey

15. Favorite raw (vegan) recipe to serve to an omni friend? Raw brownies......

17. Favorite meal to make or time of day to make it? On the rare occasion that I get enough sleep (it's 12:40 am as I type this) I like to rise early (5 am) and sip a fresh ice cold green juice and look at the moon out my window and dream.

18. What is sitting on top of your refrigerator? I have NOTHING of mine on the fridge. My husband has sugary junkfood cereal (as my daughter and I call it)... GF breadcrumbs... phone book

19. Name 3 items in your freezer without looking. Strawberries, E3Live, Kennedy's GF/Soy free pizza crust

20. What's on your grocery list? spinach, swiss chard, apples, 2 limes, avocados, cucumbers, lemons

21. Favorite grocery store? Whole Foods... I'm super limited where I live and Whole Foods is 1 hr 30 mins away.

22. Name a recipe you'd love to rawify (veganize), but haven't yet. New Orleans Praline.

23. Food blog you read the most. Or maybe the top 3? Ohhhhhhh this is a hard one... I don't have lots of time so I like to keep them in rotation ... like M/W/F . Hahaha.
Kristen's Raw, Rawdorable, Wylde and Raw, Raw Goddess Heathy, Raw Royalty, Raw Model, Raw Faith.. oh wait they said three.

24.Favorite vegan candy/chocolate? Raw Cacao beans and coconut oil blended with frozen bananas and nut mylk into a mylkshake..... That's my candy.

25. Most extravagant food item purchased lately? Vitamineral Green Powder

27. What is one recipe, ingredient or cooking technique that you've become familiar with in the last year that you can't imagine you ever lived without? I really got into sprouting big time. As we speak I am sprouting wheatberries and buckwheat... it's sooooooooo inexpensive and has so many health benefits.

28. Do you have a food inspiration in your life? Someone who taught you a lot about making a certain dish, or about food prep in general, or someone who taught you how to truly enjoy food? It can be someone you know or a book author, speaker...anything. Being from the South, my family was very communal when it came to cooking. This is why it so difficult for me now in PA with no family and hardly any friends around... I am always force feeding people when they come into my house! I was taught that eating is a social affair intended to be filled with love and fun. I am inspired by almost all raw recipe books and ebooks.... these wonderful raw food bloggers....and aspiring raw foodies. .

So there.. I hope you feel you know a bit more about me... I've been kinda revealing lately huh? :) I'm somehow missing a few questions (i.e. #16, #26)....oh well. Fellow blog goddesses do share your answers. I would love to read them!
