IMG 4354 3751   A Trio of Cookbooks Giveaway!

I never thought I’d say this, but I’m in the final days of finishing my cookbook manuscript and handing it in to my editor. After 15 months of testing recipes, writing, and shooting photography, I finally feel like things are coming together. Very, very slowly, mind you. I’ve shot about 50 recipe photographs so far, but that means I still have at least 50 recipes to remake and photograph. gulp, gulp, gulp. I’ve heard the editing process is pretty brutal, so I’m just taking it one day at a time and not looking too far ahead. The journey of getting my recipes to a place where I’m happy (and all my recipe testers) has taken much longer than I anticipated, but I didn’t want to rush the process. Quality over quantity, I say. If this is the only cookbook I ever write, I want it to be something I’m proud of. And seriously, it might be the only cookbook I ever write!

Anyway, I just wanted to pop in and say hello! I might not be able to post as much as I’d like to over the next couple weeks, but just know that I’m thinking of you always and looking forward to sharing some recipe inspiration as soon as I can. Right now, every creative cell in my body seems to be on hiatus, but it will recharge soon enough. Isn’t that what red wine is for??

Now for the giveaway fun! In my mind, there’s nothing better than curling up with a good cookbook and feeling more inspired with each turning page. Today’s giveaway highlights a couple awesome vegan cookbooks that I have in my collection as well as my favourite recipe creation tool that I reviewed recently – The Flavor Bible! I’m giving away all the books below to one lucky winner. If you happen to already own one or some of these cookbooks, I’ll be happy to send you an Amazon gift card instead. You decide. The books will be shipped new directly from Amazon.

In this giveaway:

Let Them Eat Vegan by Dreena Burton

Let Them Eat Vegan! is packed with 200 plant-powered recipes for the entire family. Dreena offers notes on how to modify her recipes for those with allergies or common substitution questions. Natural vegan ingredients are abundant in her recipes, many of which I already have in my own pantry. See my full review here.

Veganomicon by Isa Chandra Moskowitz & Terry Hope Romero

Veganomicon is truly a work of art. With over 250 recipes for any occasion, this is a cookbook I turn to often. Whether you’re in the mood for something quick and easy or something fancy and elaborate, this book will have it. There are also handy user-friendly guides for soy-free, gluten-free, low-fat, and quick and easy recipes.

The Flavor Bible by Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg

The Flavor Bible, described as “the essential guide to culinary creativity”, profiles ingredients and the corresponding herbs, spices, seasonings, etc. that pair well with each of these ingredients. As someone who has grown to love recipe creation, this book is a resource tool that I turn to when I’m looking for a nudge in the right direction. When I have an ingredient in mind that I’d like to cook with, I often look to this book for suggestions of other “compatible” ingredients that I can include in the dish. For my full review, see here.

I’m reading Wife 22 right now. It’s very modern with lots of Facebook and emailing, but not in a bad way like some I’ve read. I’m really excited to finish it because I think the ending is going to be a twist…I’m just hoping it’s what I think it will be & not something else!

Teresa Young April 24, 2013

I read Wife 22 a few months ago – loved it! No spoilers from me :-)

Misty April 23, 2013

YAY! CONGRATS! I am very much looking forward to getting your cookbook in the future!!!
I am actually ready “The Plant Based Power Diet” By Leslie Beck. I am 5 years veggie this summer and felt like I was do for a refresher on why I chose this lifestyle…. still shocks me to read the correlation of animal fat and disease. That fish burger that tempted me a few weeks ago…. I laugh in the face of! :)

Marty April 23, 2013

I haven’t been reading too many cookbooks recently which is not a good thing. Time for some new ones! These look awesome! Lately I have been re-reading the Song of Fire and Ice series by George R.R. Martin and discovered an author I have not read before, William Kent Krueger, who writes a mystery series that I am greatly enjoying.

Amy April 23, 2013

I picked up the Flavor Bible last weekend based on your recommendation! Interesting book. I’ve never read Let Them Eat Vegan but I’d love to check it out.

All the best with your final cookbook stages!

I’m currently reading Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe. Great story!

As for cookbooks, I’m loving my King Arthur Flour Baker’s Companion.

If you end up liking things fall apart, be sure to read the sequel , No Longer at Ease! I loved that one !

Kelsey April 24, 2013

Thanks, for the tip! I’ve read Things Fall Apart a few times (albeit for classes) and didn’t know there was a sequel.

Beth April 23, 2013

My newest cookbook is “More Peas, Thank You,” which I love. I’m also reading, “You’re Already Amazing” by Holley Gerth. Wonderful book about making the most of ourselves.

BTW, I made the Banana Bread Protein Bars last night. Do they need to be refrigerated? I find that anything with banana in it tends to go moldy quickly.
