2013-04-23 22:04:45 I'm Parvaneh's husband and as you might expect I eat her cookies, pies, cakes, and brownies every day. They're delicious, but more than that they are really healthy. Parvaneh uses applesauce in place of oil or margarine and instead of refined sugar she uses coconut sugar or agave nectar. She'll work a recipe over and over until she can achieve, say, a creamy texture to brownies without using oil. I could go on extolling the virtues of my wife's healthy baking but as they say the proof is in the pudding. I'm six foot one and weigh 170 pounds. Pretty good for someone who is a baking company test subject! —AlexGray
2013-04-27 19:27:41 Parvaneh's baked items are scrumptious and healthy. She is very innovative. She makes these raw cookies with dates, nuts, and natural flavors such as saffron, ginger, etc. They are so good and addictive! Her healthy Nutella (hazelnut chocolate) is so delicious I can eat the whole jar in a day. I have also tasted her brownie. I had not been a fan of brownie till I tasted hers. It was excellent, and she made it with all natural ingredients. There are no chemicals, additives, white sugar, oil, etc. in her baked goods. Not only are they guilt free but taste awesome! I also highly recommend her home cooked meals. She uses fresh ingredients and customizes her food to your taste.
2013-04-29 14:36:58 Parvaneh's fudge was so delicious. I never thought vegan goodies would be this yummy. I also tried her healthy nutella which was heavenly . I could eat the whole jar in a day. She use all natural products without any additive. You will not be sorry to try her creative bake goods and food. —LalehMohseni
2013-10-31 16:48:13 We are so lucky to have Parvaneh cooking for us! It's been a year now that I placed a small ad at the Davis Co-Op for someone to help me and my husband eat healthy foods. We are both busy and I hate to cook. So a lovely young woman answered the ad and the rest is delicious! I have a long list of Favorite dishes in every category. The BEST include Stuffed Bell Peppers, Lasagna w/ Roast Cauliflower, Risotta, Spinach with/without gluten-free pasta, Classic Black Bean & Veggie Chili with Corn Bread, Buttermilk and Coconut Rice. She cooks vegetarian rather than vegan for us and spent several weeks recently cooking gluten-free. All her salads and dressings are great and some of the desserts we love are Carrot & Ginger Cake with Cashew Frosting, Blackstrap Ginger Snaps, Espresso Oatmeal Cookies (great!) and any of her fruit pies (gluten-free, too). It looks like they don't allow me to upload photos or I'd show you the o-so-nice Christmas gift box she surprised us with last year. I am so delighted that Parvaneh has taken this entrepreneurial path. It's an honor to know such a talented, hard-working and courageous person. ~Christine Golden, Woodland CA —ChristineLGolden
