I was bragging to my friends about the magnificent desserts I am now keep stocked in my kitchen and they insisted I share the recipes. The first of these is the recipe I recently posted for Raw Brownies.

Here is the second:


Cashew lemon frosting:

1 1/2 c cashews

Juice from 1 lemon or 1 orange

2 T liquid coconut oil

2 T coconut nectar

1 t vanilla

Water, as needed


Carrot cake:

5 large carrots, peeled and chopped into small chunks

1 1/2 c oats

2 c dates

1/2 c dried coconut

1 t cinnamon

1/2 t nutmeg

For frosting: blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth, adding water as needed. Put in the fridge.

For cake: process the oats into flour in your food processor.  Gradually add in rest of ingredients and process until everything sticks together.

Press the cake mixture into a glass 9”X 9” cake pan. Cover with icing. Garnish with pieces of your favorite nut.

There are not enough words to express our feelings about those who have bravely withstood unspeakable tortures. Their memories will be a blessing, may they rest in peace. And to their families, friends and colleagues, including our fellow Pittsburghers who worked to keep Mr. Sotloff's Jewish identity completely off the radar, we also owe a huge debt.
