I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! We enjoyed fabulous weather over the weekend here in Los Angeles! Just amazing for January!! Many Angelenos hit the beach with 80 degree weather. We were busy as usual with chores, fun activities with our son and oh...a date night with the hubby! It was my turn to select a restaurant, so we headed over to The Penthouse restaurant in the the trendy Huntley Hotel in Santa Monica, California. This is not a raw or vegan restaurant, but they did have dishes for me to choose from which were delicious. It was a great choice for our date.
On Sunday, I made this herbed cheese with basil and garlic with the raw cashew cheese I made the other day. So delicious and really so simple!

RAW CASHEW CHEESE WITH BASIL AND GARLIC
3/4 cup raw cashew cheese (approximate measurement, you can use as much or as little as you'd like)
1 clove garlic
8 medium to large size basil leaves
Mince the garlic and chop up the basil. Then fold it in by hand into the cheese. Roll it into a ball and it is now ready to serve! Voila! So easy and delicious! Eat it with your favorite raw crackers, fruit, salad, or veggies.
Here are a few snippets of our view in Santa Monica on Saturday evening taken with my iPhone. Have a fabulous week!
