You can check out the original of that winning entry HERE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utRo1c1OU9k - I recommend reading the words in the side bar on the right while you watch it, to help make more sense of it - I LOVE it ;)

Join the lovely Foxy to learn how to make Brazil Nut "Turkless" Turkey, Olive-Pine Nut Gravy, Sweet Potato Casserole, Fresh Cranberry Relish, Smashed Notatos, Raw Stuffing Balls and Raw Apple Pie with Whipped Kream - WOH ;O - sounds to me like a fabulous gourmet raw foodie solution to raw holiday tension... ;)

on November the 9th I loved:

1 quart water
mug of chaga tea
2 cups greeeeen juice: celery, cucumber, fennel, spinach, parsley, Jerusalem artichoke, ginger, lemon
bowl of energy soup with yummmmmy cumin crackers, followed by a little apple cobbler with cashew cream – yummmm :)
3 cups water
an apple, a persimmon and a pomegranate – YUMMM :)
2 cups water

...and if you're in the UK and looking for 'gourmet' raw treats on the hop, check out the gorgeous new line from the yumsters at GourmetRaw.com - they've just launched a beautiful range of raw brownies and 'flackers' (i.e. flax crackers, LOVE the name ;) which are set to get stocked up soon on health food shop shelves all over the UK...
I am excited to see this, as I've long felt there was a gap in the market in the UK for SAVOURY raw items to 'grab and go' at health stores - it seems like there's tonnes of raw chocolates there and not much savoury stuff, so...HURRAY for this new line ;)
You can check out the products at GourmetRaw.com and you can also suggest a health food store where you would love to get these new gems, HERE.

All blissings,
