Toasted Almond Butter

Hi Guys,

So, here is another recipe for this adventure that I decide to roll on, Toasted Almond Butter, it is NOT an original recipe but it’s so easy (or at least it looks easy) that I decide to do it, and I did.

You only need Raw Almonds

1 1/2 cup of Raw Almonds

before

Bake the almonds for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F and here comes the fun part….

after

Let them cool a bit.

I used my food processor, it took me around 20 minutes and always scraping the sides.

And VOILA you have fresh almond butter, I didn’t make a lot, cause I was afraid but you can get a mason jar and stored in your fridge or simply do it in small batches.

Hope you can enjoy it….

Raw Foods- Blueberries Jam….. Om Nom Nom

Hi,

I’ve been curious about vegan raw food and have tried some recipes before but last night i decided to do one. For couple weeks now, I’ve changed the way I eat my breakfast, now I only eat oatmeal cooked with water with some fresh fruit. Well, I will add this extra special recipe to my morning oatmeal, Blueberries Jam. this is not a typical jam because i didn’t cook the berries, this gelatinous texture is thanks to the Chia seeds. This marvelous plant it can hold up to 10 times her weight in water. Also, high in Omega 3, fiber and miners. I hope you can give it a try and add more of this plant to your diet.

This is my first Raw Food recipe, so easy that you can’t go wrong….

Enjoy…….

Raw Food Blueberries Jam

1 cup of frozen Blueberries (preferable organic) or fresh

1/2 tsp orange zest

juice of a small orange

1 1/2 tbsp of any sweetness (I used dehydrate raw cane juice but agave, stevia will do fine)

1 1/2 tbsp Chia Seeds.

This is my first time working with chia seeds but after all my research they need plenty of water, they can hold up to 10 times their weight and have a high content of omega 3

1 tbsp of water if needed…

mix all the ingredients and let them sit overnight… And eat!!!!

you can add the jam to your oatmeal, eat it like a dessert or add different fruits to do a twist….

60’s R Back!!!!

Today we’re going retro!!! So excited, I love the 60’s, peace & love, colors, the Beatles, the fashion…. Even though I didn’t born until late 70’s, I remember my mom used to sing and dance around tunes from that era. Since I learn how to sew, I always do something that take me back to that years. Colors, big and bold patterns, and stripes are the main theme on the 60’s fashion.

I got so inspired, that I decided to do a shirt for Aleisa. Let me take you for a tour thru this process and hopefully you will fall in love with this trend as much as I do.

Summertime!!!!!!

Summertime

There is no doubt that summer is around the corner, June 2, the official date. It’s going to be hot and I want my little princess to look fabulous, also, comfortable. I felt in love with this new collection by DVF to Gap Kids, they have a particular dress that I love, basically die for it, so cute and colorful. Well, I decide to put my creative brain to work and do my own design for her.
I started my sketching to have an idea of what I want to do, and I, actually, have a clear idea of what I want, a sleeveless, short and with color, not sure if I will go for pants or skirt, but, I can figure that out later. Drawing is not my strongest ability but I’m working on it, and besides, not all designers draw like a pro. I just hate faces, and arms, and legs… Anyway, simple, because the fabric has a lot of color and I don’t want to go to much.
I haven’t order my labels yet and I have no idea how the design is going to be but I’m planning to have them soon.
In my experience, when you get with an idea, during the process of construction, will experience to many changes, but basically you always have your main idea, mine is a short, sleeveless and color.
I started with the pattern.

Drafting a pattern is not an easy job. You have to do math and have all your measurement correct before you do a pattern. You can find online a list of a standard measurements for age and sizes, you can follow that to but, you always have to do a fitting. Fortunately, children are a different story, they basically fit on their respective sizes with maybe a little difference.
All my patterns are in paper or flat patterns, even though it’s hard, it’s also cheaper for me, and i use the standard measurement, because I just can’t have Aleisa stay still.
If you are planing to start sewing, I suggest you to take and old shirt or dress or go to the any thrift store and buy something, take it apart and use them as pattern. I will show you how to do this in another post.
Doing a pattern, for me, now it’s easy but it was bad when I started.
