Hi There.

Its been such an awfully long time since I’ve visited this space. A new calendar year has passed, holidays were celebrated, parties were had. I’m sure you understand such things.


But! I have also been spending some time over in another nook; a place we like to call steph + marilet. Yes, we! My nearest and dearest friend (yes, you guessed it,  she goes by Marilet) and I have launched beautiful beginning of a blog over here. I still plan to keep this space to keep everyone updated on personal ventures such as workshops, nutritional counseling (coming oh so soon!), and other such fun things. But, please check out our new joy. Its so fun. We feel so nerdy  cool.

I hope you all are happy and well!


Also! Check out my workshop page for my up and coming health and wellness workshop. We will be learning how to make delicious green smoothies, raw desserts, and more!

A Link & Workshop Info

Greetings from the unusually warm and summery weather in the Monterey Bay. I have to admit, the sunshine is helping me beam. It’s true that normally I’m a fog type of gal, loving the overcast cozy feeling it brings to my nature. But even I can’t resist the sunshine and its effects and contagiousness from time to time. I just find myself with more energy, more smiles, and finally having an excuse to grab an icy cold green smoothie. Love, love, love.

A couple exciting tid bits I wanted to share with you. First, I have listed below my upcoming 2012 Fall Workshop schedule. You can also check out the “Workshops” tab above to find out more info. I am beyond excited to be teaching some more raw dessert recipes, as well as how to include more healthy super foods into your diet. So powerful they are.

Super Foods Workshop, Saturday September 22nd. We will be making raw almond milk and flour, raw chocolate bliss balls (delicious!), green smoothies, and learning how to sprout grains and seeds. A great chance to get started adding nutrient and flavor dense food to your lovely life.

Cozy Fall Baking, Sunday October 28th. A good fall seems extra complete with apple pie, banana bread, pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, and mulled cider. We will making all those things while learning how to utilize whole grains and bake using mostly vegan recipes. Coffee, many baked yummies, and a vegetarian lunch is included.

Healthier Holidays, Saturday November 10th. Everyone wants to partake in the sweet fun of the holidays, but now we can learn how to make desserts that wont make us feel icky after. Actually they will help us feel great! Healthy, sweet and delicious finally meet when we make vegan chocolate macaroon truffles, homemade pumpkin butter, and raw pecan pie.

I am beyond excited for the upcoming workshops and I hope to see you there. 🙂 I also wanted to share with you the sweetest link over at a blog called Get Allergy Wise. Sarah Chuck is a faithful customer and supporter of Happy Girl Kitchen (where I bake) in Monterey, and has a great blog that lends great ideas and raises awareness about food allergies. She wrote such a kind post about her experience with my baked goodies… take a peak! It made my day.

Wishing all of you so many smiles and so much happiness…..
