Apricot & Coconut Bliss Balls

Three months have passed since my last post and although I’m not posting today about animal welfare or rights, I felt it was time to make my presence known again.

The reason for such a long delay are several. Without going into details: our daughter moved out of our home and to another state, I had a health concern, holiday planning, painting several interior rooms, and the sad passing of my Grandmother who was two months shy of turning 102! So here I sit at the computer thinking and happy to hopefully have some rest time.

A friend of mine who lives in Vienna Austria sent me magazines and sweets that I received yesterday and today. I know some German so the magazines help me to learn more. Among the sweets are my favorite apricot chocolates called Sissi Taler. They are WONDERFULLY delicious!

As I enjoyed the apricot splendor, I began searching for apricot truffle recipes that I could make at home. I found this recipe that looks amazing and look forward to trying. You can find the recipe at this link: Apricot & Coconut Bliss Balls

I hope that 2017 brings you many wonderful and happy surprises. I look forward to doing what I can in the coming year to help the precious factory farm animals. They want to live just as much as any animal and I hope to make a difference.

May 2017 open eyes to kindness in our world. Kind Food, Kind You…

Easy Lentil Meatballs

Until today I’ve only posted Vegetarian recipes. Today I’ll post my first Vegan one! It looks really wonderful. It’s also gluten free. There is a reason that I post BOTH Vegetarian and Vegan recipes, but I’ll save that for my next post. In the meantime, I’ll post the link below for this recipe and if anyone tries it, do let me know what you think! 😀 I love the way the meatballs are a tad over-browned! It makes it look more authentic, not like retouched photography. Yet the photo itself is crisp and well done!
