Sweet and Sour Neat Balls and other recipes

Lets have dinner here tonight!

I am posting a recipe today - Sweet and Sour Neat Balls by Emily Lee Angell from The Complete Book of Raw Rood. (This one is esp for Tracy! )

I was just googling Emily to see if I could find her to ask if it was ok to post it ..but I cant find a way to contact her online. (Emily, whereever you are.. I hope you don't mind - You're recipes are great! : )

I did find a great other great collection of recipes and an interesting site at LivingMom.net I scanned through most of the recipes.. I have a knack for telling right away if a recipe is going to be good or not & I think most of these seem like really great ones.

Hummus, Apple crisp, Sunflower seed sour cream, Salsa, Bean dip, Enchilada sauce, Corn chips, Stuffed peppers, Wraps, Thai coleslaw, Lime pie, Pizza Rolls, Guacamole, Lots of salads and Dressings, Onion Bread, Fajita wraps with smoked jalapeno cheese, Tomato soup, Burritos, Sun garden burgers, soo many desserts: Roofes peanut butter cups, Apple pie, Cacao butter balls - hey, whipped cream to go with our pumpkin pie! and so much more - crackers, granola, pates, ..more desserts!
..another recipe of Emilys for her 'Just Like Cheezecake' Mmmm.. love raw cheezecake!

wow, ok.. back to the neat-balls.. these are so good!
