s & ADear Patients, Family and Friends~
 
No problem with a 'white' holiday season; I spent a bit of time these past 3 days moving that stuff around. Instead of the gym, instead of yoga class, I prefer moving my muscles and getting my heart rate up outdoors! (all the while planning our next escape to somewhere warm)
 
The holidays are a time of opposites; we try to spend time with those we love and miss, most of the rest of the year, and we: over-extend, over-eat, over-do and over-spend.  Remember, the most precious gift we can give those we love is the gift of our time. There's nothing that can replace some 'face time' or  just a phone call...yes, a real  call, not text or email. Take a few minutes to tell those you love how you feel and how much they mean to you; now is a great time to be great-full for all of our many blessings. Love is the reason or the season.
 
To all of you, in love and thanks for touching our lives with your transformation, your courage
and your love ! 
What a great way to start 2010!

leafMost of you know my penchant for recycling and things 'green'. This is the latest in an easy way to effect the global air quality; use Ecosia the 'green' search engine that donates its profits to rainforest conservation. There's a cool little gague that lets you know that every time you search with Ecosia you are saving at least 2.6 m of rainforest! There are no gimmicks, charges or sales of your email address; try it: Ecosia

                              Lydia's Christmas Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
 
Dry ingredients:                                                        Wet Ingredients:
2 to 2 c gluten free baking flour                          4  'happy' eggs (from cage free chickens :)
3 tsp baking powder                                                 1 large can pineapple chunks with juice
1 tsp baking soda                                                  2-3 c shredded carrots
1 tsp salt                                                                      a 'sploosh' of applesauce
3 tsp cinnamon                                                           1 tsp vanilla                                             
large sprinkle nutmeg
1 c sugar                                 
to 1 c chopped walnuts                                                                                               tree

Creme Cheese Frosting                                                                                                                    
1 8 oz brick cream cheese
1 c powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp orange extract
pinch of salt
 
For the cake: Use a large spring pan or a 9 X 13 pan.  Butter the pan and sprinkle almond meal on it so the cake comes out easily. Heat oven to 350F.
 
Stir the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
Place the wet ingredients in the food processor bowl and stir until they appeared to well mixed, add shredded carrots to the wet mix and pour wet ingredients onto the bowl with the dry ingredients.
Mix the wet and dry ingredients until they appeared to be well mixed, add the walnuts.
 
The mixture will appear thin. This is why I say 2 to 2 cups of flour. 
Pour the mix into the prepared pan.  Bake for 45 minutes to one hour. The cake is done when you do the knife or toothpick test and it comes out clean. Allow cake to cool thoroughly before taking it out of the pan.  I took my cake out of the pan and allowed it to continue cooling overnight in the refrigerator. 
Frosting: Allow the cream cheese to warm up to room temperature.  Beat the cream cheese until very soft, add the vanilla and orange extract.  Add the salt and the sugar, beating the ingredients until the frosting looks right. Frost the cool cake.
  Enjoy!
