I’m absolutely thrilled with the positive response my new cookbook, Practically Raw: Flexible Raw Recipes Anyone Can Make, is garnering all across the blogosphere. Today I want to share with you some of the “fan photos” I’ve been collecting in a Facebook album on the AV page.

Erin made Apple Pie Oatmeal (page 56).

Kristel made a lunch full of robust Italian flavors: Rosemary Garlic Bread (page 66) with Basil-Parsley Pesto (page 91), Pizza Kale Chips (page 102), and baby carrots with Italian Herb Hummus (page 116).

Kris made Biscuits and Sausage Gravy (page 62).

Kristel and Elizabeth made an enormous raw brunch using all recipes from Practically Raw!

This feast included Pizza Kale Chips (page 102) and Chocolate Kale Chips (page 104)…

…Chia Porridge with Blueberries (page 54)…

…and Morning Mushroom Scramble (page 53)…

…plus Butternut Squash Chipotle Soup (page 120), Flaxjacks with Miso-Maple Butter (page 58), Apple Cinnamon Raisin Bread (page 70), and Banana Bread Squares (page 68). Wow!

Bianca made and reviewed Mushroom-Nut Burgers (page 144)…

…Sour Cream and Onion Kale Chips (page 100)…

…and Matt’s Salad Sprinkle (page 127).

Simone made and reviewed Deconstructed Sushi Bowls (page 152)…

…and the Taco Salad Supeme (page 128).

Miranda fell in love with my Famous Five-Minute Blondies.

And last but not least, Kristel made a veritable buffet of kale chips: Smokin’ Hot Kale Chips, Cheesy Chili Kale Chips, Pizza Kale Chips, Chocolate Kale Chips, and Maple Pecan Kale Chips! All recipes are in Chapter 6 of Practically Raw (starting on page 97).

    wow! these pictures are incredible! i really need to get your cookbook!

  2. March 22, 2012 12:42 pm

    that’s gotta be SO EXCITING for you to see your recipes, via pictures, made in other people’s kitchens. I truly love it, more than anything, if someone makes a recipe of mine and blogs about it with their own photos…it’s the best thing ever to see it come alive in someone else’s world and hear what they thought about it!

    Wow! I love that kale chip buffet! What a great idea! I bet her dehydrator was running for days!! πŸ™‚

    And that brunch! Wow!

    P.S. I’m eating some of those sour cream and onion kale chips at my desk right now.

    I definitely need to get my hands on a copy soon! Everything looks great. I’m bummed that we’re booked all weekend and I can’t make it to the book signing on Saturday, but I’m counting on there being more in the future… ::crosses fingers::

    So awesome! I just got your book and it is so lovely and so packed with amazing high quality recipes. While all of the pics above do look good, I’m most excited about trying some of the sweets, particularly the cinnamon crumble coffe cake. I’ll let you know how it turns out!

  6. March 22, 2012 4:15 pm

    You’ve reminded me that I actually need to BUY your book in order to try more recipes!

    I want to go to Kristel’s house! How amazing is that? I want try to each kale chip flavor, yum! How many dehydrators did it take to do those? I can’t wait to get your book, fingers crossed I win a giveaway…

    The KALE CHIPS!!!Oh, how I want to try the kale chips:-) The major downside of living in this part of the world is that you canΒ΄t get kale here….BUT, I will make sure to smuggle some back with me from the States – along with your book of course – … then make my own huge kale chips buffet and send you pictures :-))

    • March 22, 2012 8:31 pm

      – I can feel it already…just know that I will love all your kale chips recipes…

    • March 22, 2012 8:31 pm

      I remember Jennifer telling me you can’t get kale in Thailand – you’ll have to really load up and indulge while you’re here! πŸ™‚

      • March 22, 2012 9:21 pm

        Yes; I have to bring an empty suitcase from here!
        Nope, no kale here….BUT – young coconuts in the back yard! I guess you cant have it all:-)

    Hey Amber!
    I just went to the post office and picked up my cookbook this morning. Can’t wait to work on making some of those kale chips! yum! Including the “insane” chocolate kale chips. I almost wish I wasn’t heading out all weekend on a retreat because I will have to wait to get started until next week.

    I also bought a jar of TJ’s coconut oil which I’ve been using to cook a new purchase for me, Morningstar black bean burgers.

    FYI: Last time, I’ve been trying to post this since noon Thursday.

      Yay, happy to hear that Sharon! You will LOVE the Chocolate Kale Chips. Sounds like you’re making wonderful strides in your healthier lifestyle – keep up the great work!

    Oh wow! I’m pretty jealous of that brunch spread! Love the italian-themed lunch, too! I regret that I did not make a feast tonight but I did make my first raw dessert ever: the five minute blondies. They were sooo good! Amber, I know people tell you thIs a lot but “my non-vegan, non-raw husband loved them.” Seriously, I made them single-serving style and he made me make him another. I happily obliged, loving that he is loving raw foods. These really tasted like blondies and were a very satisfying dessert. They really do take only five minutes to make. Everyone should try these!

    • March 23, 2012 9:45 am

      Thanks for the blondie testimonial, Tara! I’m pretty sure that recipe is my favorite one I’ve created, ever πŸ™‚ They really are delicious and satisfying to EVERYONE. I’m so happy you both loved them! Feel free to send me a photo if you snapped one.

    Oh darling, I meant to DM you on Twitter about your latest wedding post, as I read it at work but my phone wouldn’t let me comment. So thrilled that things are progressing, and am hoping very muchly that this means you’re feeling less stress/overwhelmed about it. Also, do let me know if that interview becomes streamable at some point?

    Gorgeous looking food, of course. I’ll have to try the biscuits and gravy one day, if only because I’ve never had nor wanted the real version so the idea of a raw vegan version is highly entertaining.

    • March 23, 2012 9:54 am

      The wedding is honestly the least of my stresses right now… =/
      Yes, the interview audio is streamable HERE!

      Perhaps when you come here I’ll make you both a raw vegan and a cooked vegan plate of B&G. πŸ˜€

      • March 24, 2012 10:43 pm

        Bahaha! We’re going to have to make sure we schedule in a FEW things while I”m there that aren’t just eating πŸ˜‰

        Also, 😦 and HUGS and please please feel free to write to me (ignoring all in my previous email). If it lessens the stress to have someone to talk to/at, of course. Only if it will help. I’m here. And writing very incoherently. But you know what I mean πŸ™‚ xoxoxo

      • March 25, 2012 10:01 am

        Yes yes, I DO need to write you back. I’m doing that thing where I’m putting it off because I’m expecting it to take hours because I have SO much to say. But I’ll try to be brief and hurry up!

        • March 29, 2012 6:28 pm

          I completely understand, that is exactly what I do/am doing to many others right now πŸ˜›

  12. March 26, 2012 3:13 pm

    I want to try all of it! The salad sprinkles have me intrigued. As luck would have it, I ordered your book last night! Thank you for the congratulations.

  13. March 28, 2012 12:57 pm

    Oh yum! I need to remember to take some photos the next time I make something from your book. I haven’t been good at remembering that lately. Oops πŸ™‚

  14. May 9, 2012 10:13 am

    Wow Amber, I can’t wait to order your book this looks perfectly delicious, especially the deconstructed sushi bowl yum!

    I’m new to raw foods (well, to making other things than salad) and I read the preview on amazon yesterday, i love how you offer different options when people don’t have fancy equipment. I personally have a dehydrator, but when I didn’t, I wish i had this book!

    Hi, I am from Spain and getting into more raw food and I saw your blog and your book and I bought it on Amazon. I’m reading it at the moment and look forward to start your recipes. Thanks.
