Raw Blueberry Maple Brownies















     Are you ready to get your freak on in the kitchen!!!???  If so, you will love playing and experimenting with Raw Cooking.  This is completely new for me, and an area I have been interested in for a while, and look forward to exploring a bit more.  The inspiration for this is from Fragrant Vanilla Cake, Amy is a GENIUS !!!  You simply must check her Facebook page out if you have any interest at all in Raw Cooking.  She is coming out with a book, and this girls talent is out of this world crazy good !!!  So, the first few bites were a bit weird for me, but then it grew on me, and I'm starting to think I like it!  It's definitely different than Duncan Hines, and more of an acquired taste for a refined palate.  There are so many options with this, so don't let your first go round determine your passion, give a few recipes a try and then decide.  I will try and do a few more to play with, and hope you will join me on the Merry Go Round !!!   Cheers ;)
