My name is Scott. I am addicted to dessert. I am a dessert addict. If you ask my friends what my favorite food is, they will quickly tell you “chocolate!’” If you reply, “that’s not a food?!” then they will tell you “brownies! cake!” and that would be right on the mark.
Over the years, my interest in the sweet life has grown by leaps and bounds. I love creating new chocolate treats, perfecting ‘comfort’ recipes and bringing joy to the beings of my friends by offering them amazing treats. At one point, I chose to pursue a career as a pastry chef, was accepted into a great school, but backed out at the last minute when I was invited to create a technology start-up company with a old friend. However, the love of perfect pastry and all things related never left.
Being addicted to dessert does have its problems, mind you. Over the years I have struggled with sugar-addiction and related problems, constant weight fluctuation, lack of energy, gastrointestinal disorders, you name it. At some point, someone in this situation gets fed up with the side-effects of a dessert eating lifestyle and wants to make a change about it. That happened to me about four years ago, when I discovered raw foods and how good for my body raw foods felt.
In fact, I fell so in love with how I felt on raw food, I started creating a raw food community here in Denver, CO, where I live. Raw Denver is one of my web-sites and we aim to inspire others into joining the raw food community. Raw Denver hosts pot-lucks, teaches classes and links to other raw food resources in the area.
Anyway, now that raw food is here to stay, I needed a way to have my cake and eat it too! Enter the world of The Raw Dessert. I hope to bring you recipes that inspire you to eat raw foods and at the same time, bring joy to the depths of your being with chocolatey goodness and sweet sweet yummies.
