Summer Celebration Dessert: Raw Lemon Cherry Cheesecake

Raw Lemon Cherry Cheesecake | In Pursuit Of More

Where there is love there is life.

~ Mahatma Ghandi

Looking through my latest recipes, it seems as though it’s been ages since I published or shared anything that wasn’t salad, as let’s face it, that is obviously where my head is most days of the year! Meals around here in this somewhat hot summer have been quick and easy of late: not a lot of cooking going on (this small house gets unbearable with the oven or stove on), and truthfully comprised of whatever we will all eat that’s the same. In short, mostly greens from the garden, which have been plentiful, and our favorite veggies and tofu cooked on the barbecue (the hubby has his meat and loves it). Food is simple these days as life is anything but. Continue reading

FUDGY COFFEE & CHOCOLATE NUT CANDY

FUDGY COFFEE & CHOCOLATE NUT CANDY | VEGAN

 “Growing up is losing some illusions, in order to acquire others.”

~  Virginia Woolf

I have to say, of all the things I have ever loved most, there really is nothing that compares to the smell and look of deep black soil, and the feel of it on your hands and your jeans after a good day of digging and connecting with the ground. I’m not sure I’ve shared much here about my little passion for gardening, but that could very well be because the last few years have been well, kind of, not really about that. Until now that is!

The days are long, but the years are short.

~ Gretchen Rubin

In the heat of the glorious summer we are having, it’s a given we’ll recall childhood memories of summers past as the familiar smells pass our noses and the sun flickers gently through the leaves on the trees once again. I don’t know about you guys, but these months are always slightly bittersweet, as each waft of the dry yellowed grass brings back a gentle shimmering essence of past summers spent growing, learning, loving, idling, and essentially becoming who we all are today.

Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb, that’s where the fruit is.

~ Unknown

Stretching ourselves into unknown territory is hard, actually it could quite possibly be the hardest thing there is to do at all. If I think about those I admire, It’s always clear that the reason I do so is based on one thing: the fact that someone has been or has done something amazing.
