A Cookbook inspiration from Love

My friends are amazing! This year I was not in the mood to celebrate my birthday! But they had other plans in mind. My best friends hosted my birthday on the rooftop of one of my dear friends high rise on a beautiful starry summer’s night in Atlanta. We laughed, we cried, we sang, we meditated. It was so ME! My best friend had each lady blow out a gold candle and make a wish for themselves on this beautiful night. That also is so ME, life should be a celebration of us ALL. Well everyone gave me beautiful birthday wishes and gifts.

All My Birthday gift that inspire my love for cooking

The funny thing this year most of my gifts were cooking utensils. Now I cook a lot almost every day, but my kitchen is so primitive. They brought me into the 21st century. LOL.  This also has inspired me to finally write my cookbook. Set that Table with Love. So here is a recipe I wanted to share with you guys.  I did tonight using two of the gifts that were given to me. A Cuisinart Blender and lovely little glass dressing holder.

This is truly setting the table with love.

Blueberry Pineapple Salad Dressing

1 cup of  organic pineapples ( chopped)

1 cup of olive oil

4 tbs of organic unsweetened cranberry juice

1 tbs of apple cider vinegar

1 1/2 tbs of organic honey

couple of pinches of sea salt

I blended everything well in my Cuisinart Blender and yummy healthy dressing was born.

This dressing is high in antioxidants, omega fatty acids, prebiotics from the apple cider vinegar which is excellent in promoting healthy intestinal flora. Also this dressing is great for the kidneys and help boost collagen as well, which in my book makes it a Beautiful Energy Food.

Enjoy and Remember to Set the table with Love.
