Maybe you have noticed that lately I haven’t been as active here as I normally am – that is because I have been working away behind the scenes on quite a few super exciting projects that I cannot wait to share with you. One of the biggest projects of late has been the amazing opportunity to act as Editor in Chief of Go Gluten Free magazine’s summer 2015 issue! After a lot of intense work and plenty of sleepless nights I am thrilled to say that the issue is within days of being shipped off to print and now all that is left is to eagerly await it’s arrival on the new stands in May.
Working on the magazine seemed to make the subject of color a reoccurring conversation in my daily life. I found myself over and over being drawn to recipes, images, and stories that really embraced eating the rainbow and leading a colorful life.
I already knew that bold, beautiful, sometimes even obnoxious colors get me and bring a huge smile to my face. They captivate my attention, and they move me. Maybe this is why we choose to hang colorful graffiti art on the walls of our home. Maybe this is why I was drawn to my husband who shows no fear when it comes to color in his designs. Maybe – just maybe this is why my obsession with colorful latte bowls is teetering on the edge of needing an intervention and I know it is definitely behind my obsession with dragon fruit.
There is just something about that flamingo pink hue that only dragon fruit can impart. No, there isn’t any added food coloring here in this technicolor icebox cake. Just loads of raw fruit, nuts and a few spices in this beauty!
