Cookbook #2 News To Share + Updates!

Good morning! I’m excited for today’s post. There’s been a lot going on behind the scenes over here so I want to share some recent news with you.

Shortly after my first cookbook launched last March, I was offered to write second and third cookbooks. To say that I felt grateful is an understatement. However, my energy levels were pretty shot after a recent move, house renovation, the first trimester of pregnancy, and book launch. I knew I wanted to create another book someday, but I also knew the timing had to be right. Would I ever have the chance to create another book with a baby on the way? When would the timing be right? How would I continue to do chase career dreams while being a mother? I struggled, and still do, with these questions. I don’t have it all together, or even many answers on how to achieve a great balance, but I just try to put my heart into everything I do. I honestly didn’t know if I would want to write another cookbook for a long time. Not because I didn’t enjoy the first book, but the cookbook process is long, intense, and taxing. I’ve never been one to rush into big decisions so I decided to wait. My editors were super supportive and understanding, thankfully. I needed the passion and drive to return.

Sure enough though, that drive and creative spark did come back – and much sooner than I anticipated. During fall of last year, I started to feel a passion for creating a collection of recipes again. After a pregnancy that left me feeling lackluster about food, I now had an insatiable appetite thanks to round the clock nursing sessions. Food was exciting again!!! Recipes started flooding my mind and I worked on a recipe list during middle of the night feedings. Weird, I know, but there I was at 3am typing ideas into my iPhone. Before I knew it, I had over 200 recipe ideas and the rough outline for book #2 drafted. I was in the kitchen testing every chance I had – during naps and after Adriana’s bedtime mostly. No one was more shocked than I was with this sudden burst of creativity. My editors were thrilled to hear the news that I had been secretly working away on book #2 for months. But I was still unsure if I could make it all come to life. I’ve always been an independent worker, but it struck me then that I didn’t have to do it all on my own. In fact, I couldn’t anymore. Even though I enjoy food photography (and shooting the first book was one of my pride and joys), I knew with a baby in the house shooting over 100 photos for the book in addition to everything else just wasn’t going to happen!

The first person I thought of is my friend, Ashley. Our blogs and granola bar businesses brought us together way back in 2008 and we have stayed close ever since. She needs no introduction for many of you; she’s an incredibly talented blogger, recipe developer, and photographer (you can check out her gorgeous portfolio here). I sent her an email one day asking her if she’d be interested in shooting an entire cookbook (she recently shot the photography for her own cookbook – Baked Doughnuts for Everyone), and she got back to me almost instantly with…Am I interested? Umm let me think….YES!!!!!


Here we are back in 2010!

Obviously, I had to iron out the project proposal and all the details, but seeing her enthusiasm for this project made me certain she had to be a part of it. Her passion for food photography is exactly what I want for this next book, not to mention I admire her all-natural, unaltered approach with food styling. (You want to bet that she eats every recipe after she shoots it!) I knew she could capture the essence of my healthy, approachable, and fuss-free recipes while show-casing the food’s natural beauty.

Here are a few beautiful trial photos that she shot:

I’m so excited to have Ashley on board to shoot 100+ photos for my next cookbook. This allows me to focus on my biggest passion – developing and testing recipes for you. Not having to do the photography has allowed me to focus exclusively on developing and testing recipes, writing, and running my recipe tester website. It’s working out well (most of my recipes are completed and just need re-testing) and I couldn’t be happier with how it’s coming along. Ashley will be shooting the photography this summer, so this spring has been a really busy one for me. I know things have been quieter around here on the blog lately, and I appreciate your patience as I put my heart and soul into this next book. I hope to get back into a regular blog posting schedule soon. I miss this space so much!

Many of you have asked when the next cookbook will be published and I can now tell you that it’s due out early fall 2016. It’ll be out in time for the start of the holiday season which I think is the perfect time for this collection of recipes.

Here are a few more details about the next book:

– It will feature a mix of my favourite “every day” go-to recipes perfect for busy and active lifestyles, as well as more elaborate or special occasion recipes! I’m sharing the recipes that work for my actual life, the things I make on a regular basis, my go-to potluck/holiday recipes, etc. I think it’ll be a great mix.

– All recipes are plant-based/vegan. Almost all of the recipes are gluten-free (with the exception of a few recipes with spelt flour), and soy-free.

– I offer a lot of nut-free recipes as well as many nut-free substitutions in this book. There are plenty of nut-free snacks for kids!!

– Think “healthy comfort food” recipes that won’t weigh you down! Examples: nut-free chili and cheese nachos, creamy roasted detox salad, cheesy lentil pasta casserole, and the ultimate flourless sea salt brownies (totally bean-free, grain-free!), as well as a mix of lighter recipes like healthy parfaits, salads, soups, dips, smoothies, and more. No strange ingredients, just real food.

I’ve been sharing behind the scenes action for months now on Instagram. You can follow all the behind the scenes action with the #osgcookbook2 hashtag! Ash will be sharing behind the scenes sneak peaks this summer too (I’m a sucker for those glimpses into someone’s work!). You can follow us on Instagram: @ohsheglows and @edibleash (you can read her announcement post here, by the way).

Well, I can’t wait for this next book to come to life. I’m incredibly grateful to continue this journey and for your amazing support. More updates to come!

P.S. I’d like to pass along some recent interviews!

1) A review of The Oh She Glows Cookbook by Katie Hay of T.O.F.U. Magazine

“This cookbook is full of simple, approachable recipes that the whole family will enjoy. Most can be made with ease on a weeknight (<45min), with downtime in-between. The recipes are such that they are practical, and don’t sacrifice flavour for speed. The included photos done by Angela are absolutely stunning, but what is more exciting is that the dishes end up looking like the photos! This is homey, craveable cooking at its finest, and Oh She Glows will be a go-to cookbook stained and splattered.” ~Katie Hay

2) An interview with Barre3 – We chatted about cookbook creation, favourite recipes, balance, and more.

“Running a business and being a new mom has reinforced something I’ve known for a while—it’s impossible for every aspect of my life to feel balanced at the same time. It reminds me of the saying, “you can have it all, but just not all at once.” I’ve made peace with the unbalance in my life right now. Yes, I’m sleep deprived, my laundry is piled up, and my pre-baby jeans are still a bit tight, but there is so much in my life to be grateful for.”

3) An interview and Oh She Glows Cookbook recipe feature in The Telegraph (UK)

Oh my gosh I’m so excited to get my hands on your next cookbooks!! And healthy comfort food sounds perfect as a new mom. Anxiously waiting!!


Laura ~ Raise Your Garden May 12, 2015 at 10:13 am

I agree! I’m so happy for you that your creative spark has returned and that you are able and willing to work on another book. Can’t wait until Fall 2016! Until then enjoy that baby, and quite honestly, I bet that as much as you are enjoying family life, that you are also enjoying having a creative outlet…..and making more recipes! Wishing you the best of luck from the general Niagara Falls area =)


Ashley May 12, 2015 at 8:46 am

It feels so official now!! I truly could not be more excited to be working on this project together and cannot wait to really get started this summer. You are most definitely right, I will be eating every single recipe immediately after shooting. :) This post made my heart swell. And I still think about driving to Canada late at night, thinking, “Is this insane???” But it most definitely was not. <3 <3 p.s. #granolabars4life


Erica {[email protected]} May 12, 2015 at 8:52 am

I absolutely love your recipes, and supporting you! Can’t wait to grab the next cookbook.


Dayna @ The Kitchen Library May 12, 2015 at 9:24 am

I just put the cookbook launch date into my calendar. After doing two big cookbook swaps, yours was the only one I kept because it’s the only one I actually use regularly! No offense, Martha, Jamie, and Nigella…


Sara May 12, 2015 at 9:36 am



Heather May 12, 2015 at 9:44 am

I’m so excited for book #2! I bought your first book as soon as it was available for order in the US and have loaned it out plenty of times to friends and family. Also, healthy comfort food is the epitome of Fall cooking so perfect timing!


Jessica May 12, 2015 at 9:52 am

As a mother of a 20-month-old who runs a yoga studio, a blog, and takes care of baby…I completely empathized with your post. I also found it hard to get excited about yoga, nutrition and the rest right after birth. But the energy returned and I’ve found that my perspective has shifted as a mom.

I’ve shared your first cookbook with many friends, and also recommend the blog for great vegan, healthier recipes. So thank you for all that you do!

And very excited about the new book! I think it was a great idea to take Ashley on board to do photos. Trying to do it all is a recipe for burnout.

Focus on your strengths, because you help so many people!


Alexa [] May 12, 2015 at 10:11 am

Oh, I just cannot wait for your new book, Angela! I am totally smitten with your first one – I can only imagine how great #2 will be!


Abby @ The Frosted Vegan May 12, 2015 at 10:25 am

Ahhhh I could not be more excited for you and Ashley!! You are both amazing ladies and I couldn’t be happier to see the result of the two of you working together. I know this next cookbook is going to be perfect, I can’t WAIT to see it Ang!


Giovanna May 12, 2015 at 10:35 am

Dear Angela! So proud of you and excited to see your new cookbook. I also applaud you asking for help in order to accomplish your dream, we women tend to want to do it all ! Is okay to ask for help! It took me a long time to understand .Good for you!


Erin @ Erin's Inside Job May 12, 2015 at 10:53 am

Yesss I am so pumped for this! Your blog was the one that I started reading obsessively to try and catch up on all your previous posts and it gave me the inspiration to start my own. I have loved following along in the process and I’m glad I can do it again with book #2!


Tiff Madden May 12, 2015 at 11:00 am

I am very excited about OSG#2 but the wait is going to feel like forever!!! I wanted to share with you that I was in the grocery store a couple of weeks ago and a lady had your cookbook open in her cart. Even though I was in a bit of a rush I just had to stop and take a few minutes to chat about the awesomeness of the book and some favourite recipes!!


Lauren Vacula @ May 12, 2015 at 11:04 am

Angela, cannot wait to see what you two come up with. Your recipes are always fantastic, well-tested, and pretty much on point and a knock out of the part. Can’t wait for this.

xo, Lauren @


Hannah May 12, 2015 at 11:06 am

Super cool, I love when friends can work together, Ashley takes beautiful shots! I am so excited to see what’s in store for book two!! I already am dreaming of an Oh She Glows Challenge part 2 – I loved testing out all your recipes from the first book :)


Jennifer Harmon {Peppers and Peaches} May 12, 2015 at 11:09 am

This is so exciting! I cannot wait for your next book to come out! While I am sad you will not be shooting your photos this time I cannot wait to see Ashley’s version of your recipes! Such an adventure! Props to you for compromising and finding the perfect path to take with your new life while still living through your passion. You are doing fabulous! Keep it up!


KJ May 12, 2015 at 11:13 am

I was beyond excited when I heard you were working on a second cookbook!! You’re first one contained soo many amazing recipes and it quickly became a staple book for meal planning!! I’m so excited to pick this one up next year!!
And Ashley’s pictures are beautiful!! She will definitely do your delicious recipes justice!!!



Maria May 12, 2015 at 11:19 am

This is fun news! Looking forward to your new batch of kitchen creations! :)


Cassie May 12, 2015 at 11:33 am

I already have one of your cookbooks and I can’t get enough. Can’t wait to see what’s gonna be in store next!


Amy May 12, 2015 at 11:59 am

Great decision. It serves as a reminder to ask for help when we need to instead of getting overwhelmed with ‘taking it all on’ which can lead to things not getting accomplished!

Looking forward to what you two ladies produce together.


Bree May 12, 2015 at 12:06 pm

Thanks for sharing this news! I am looking forward to your next cookbook! Best of luck with shooting the pictures this summer – I hope you ladies have a blast. And, though I miss your more frequent posts, I completely understand and will be right here reading when the timing is right for you to post more!


Tiffany27 May 12, 2015 at 12:09 pm

*sits patiently in front of bookstore waiting for OSGcookbook 2*


Fanya @ Bliss half FULL May 12, 2015 at 12:17 pm

I am so excited!!! I found your cookbook the day I woke up vegan (after watching Vegucated) and although I bought 3 more books, I seem to only be using yours, and I love it, every single recipe is a complete success, not only for me but for anyone I share it with. I can’t wait to pre-order the next one.


Ashley @ A Lady Goes West May 12, 2015 at 1:26 pm

That’s so great you’re teaming up with Ashley to create another cookbook! Can’t wait to see what you come up with! Congrats!


Siobhan May 12, 2015 at 1:46 pm

Ahhh it looks amazing! I can’t wait to see it on the shelf and get my hands on it! :) xx


Christine May 12, 2015 at 1:54 pm

Can’t wait, your cookbook and blog are fantastic and the recipes have been embraced by my non-vegan family. My freezer has been full of your soups, stews, sauces and treats and I never get tired of the same thing – delicious.

I know you mark your recipes with lots of tips, please do add if things are freezer proof and any tips of doubling up quantities or recipes as I often make things in larger batches.

You work so hard and can’t wait to share your book with friends – wishing it was fall 2016 already!


andrea May 12, 2015 at 1:57 pm

It was so encouraging to hear how waiting for inspiration to take over has been a blessing as you work on this next cookbook…and I’m eagerly anticipating next fall!


Hannah May 12, 2015 at 2:39 pm

So thrilled for you in this incredible adventure! Your first cookbook is a staple in my kitchen, as is your website. It’s gotten me through many health changes, and has won over many non-vegans ;)


Kelsey May 12, 2015 at 2:41 pm

Thank you for sharing what’s to come in your next cookbook. Healthy comfort food is exactly what I need. My mom recently switched to a plant based diet and I’ve been sending her your recipes.


Catherine @ foodiecology May 12, 2015 at 2:57 pm

This is SO EXCITING. I know what’s going on my 2016 Xmas list for sure.
Ashley is an incredible photographer, and I think this is a match made in heaven.
Can’t wait to see (& test!) the finished product.


Susan May 12, 2015 at 3:49 pm

I agree completely with Katie Hay’s review in your postscript! My OSG cookbook is covered in splatters and my family has been enjoying the recipes! I cannot wait for the second book and looking forward to more kid focused options as well!

Many congrats on your successes. Well deserved!


Kimberly/TheLittlePlantation May 12, 2015 at 4:18 pm

This is great news indeed. A super team!
I so look forward to book number two as I thoroughly enjoyed your first book :)


Tiffany27 May 12, 2015 at 4:45 pm

Quick question, are you interested at all at maybe creating some baby recipe first foods book? I know you have a ton on your plate and there are countless books available, but I think it would be cool to do and of course I would purchase. Forgive me if you’ve already spoken about this.


Jessica May 12, 2015 at 5:51 pm

I am SO. PUMPED. for your new book! Your first one made my transition to a vegan diet so easy that now I buy it for all of my clients (I’m a personal trainer) as a welcome-to-your-healthy-new-life gift. You’re amazing and beautiful and a wonderful mama, and I would preorder your book NOW if I could!


Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat May 12, 2015 at 9:05 pm

Ahhh Ange I’m shivering with excitement for you right now! I adore Ashley’s photography and her blog, and I’m sure that the two of you working together is going to result in an epic cookbook. I can’t wait to see all of this come together and am so, so proud of you for pursuing your dreams so passionately!


India May 12, 2015 at 9:11 pm

This is awesome. I’m so glad you took the time to think about it. And then figured out what would work for you and your family. Your cookbook is one of my favorites.


Matea May 12, 2015 at 9:12 pm

So glad you’re having a new cookbook! Your recipes are always amazing :)


Svetlana May 12, 2015 at 9:55 pm

Sooooo excited!!! I have been following both of your blogs for years!!! I cant wait for your book, I am sure it will be amazing!


CARLA May 13, 2015 at 4:28 am




Nicki May 13, 2015 at 5:20 am

Oh this is such exciting news, I can’t wait!!!! Your first cookbook has become a staple in our kitchen and your recipes are loved by my whole family.


Stacy @ Nourishing Health May 13, 2015 at 7:43 am

Such an awesome partnership! I love Ashley’s work and her photography is incredible! Congrats!


Jennifer May 13, 2015 at 7:49 am

Hi Angela!

Your publisher just gave me your cookbook to review and I would love to interview for it! What email can you be reached at?? Or you can email me!! Thanks so much! Looking forward to your next book!




Annie May 13, 2015 at 8:26 am

I’m very happy for you and glad to support your work! I loved reading about your huge burst of creativity–it sounds like you’ve caught a wave and rockin’ it!


Kathy Sturr of the Violet Fern May 13, 2015 at 8:26 am

Can’t wait! I can feel your energy and excitement in this post. Yours was the first Vegan cookbook I purchased!


Katie May 13, 2015 at 9:11 am

Hey Angela,

Thanks for linking my review! Since then the cookbook has only gotten more splattered and its solidified its place in my “stand-by for crowd pleasing deliciousness” category! Congrats also on the ETA of Cookbook #2. I know that the recipes are super tasty, and I cannot wait to test more :)

All the best,



Amey May 13, 2015 at 9:53 am

huzzah! great news! I’m so excited for your next book, since I’m just absolutely in love with book #1. So many of our new favorites are from your cookbook, it will be great to see what awaits us in the next book. How lovely for your that the process of writing this book has been so creative and rewarding. Good for you to reach out for help with the photography… so that you could stay connected to the part of the process that felt most exciting for you. Knowing when to ask for help is a wonderful thing! :)


Monique May 13, 2015 at 11:15 am

Even though I’m excited about the new cookbook, I’m even more thrilled that you plan on blogging regularly again soon! Ever since you stopped posting (both here and on the baby blog) I feel like a best friend moved away. I’m relieved to read that you miss blogging as much as we miss reading it. Can’t wait for your next post that does not just include updates or teasing pictures but new inspirational recipes!


Angeline May 13, 2015 at 11:41 am

YAY!!!!! Good job girl!! It must have been a tough decision to give up something that you were proud to do before (and were so good at)! But that’s how we all stay sane and the sample pics you posted are beautiful!! I am excitedly waiting for cookbook #2!!! I LOVE the first one SO much!!
I love to read your blog posts but balance in life is SO much more important!


Jen May 13, 2015 at 11:46 am

Such exciting news! Your cookbook is my most used and loved cookbook to date. I’m so excited for cookbook #2 !


Anna Lee May 13, 2015 at 11:48 am

I’m so excited! I’ve practically been drooling all over your instagram photos. Bring on the healthy comfort food!


Jessica May 13, 2015 at 1:50 pm

Remember when you launched the first book?? (Of course you do!!!) …. and you did that little freebie cookbook with it for people who pre-ordered the book? Just curious if perhaps you are going to do that with OSG Book Round 2!

Congrats on all the exciting new things!!


Renee May 13, 2015 at 2:37 pm

This is such great news! Your current cookbook gets pulled out weekly in my kitchen, because all of your recipes are healthy, satisfying and fool proof! Keep those creative juices flowing, Angela! Can’t wait for book #2!! :)


Jana May 13, 2015 at 2:46 pm

Amazing news Angela. Go Angela Go.


Ashley R May 13, 2015 at 4:37 pm

Oh, is this ever cool news! I have both of your cookbooks, and love them very much…and am neither vegan, nor gluten free :) I am very much looking forward to your next book now :) Funnily enough, on my blog (which is just basically an outlet for me….that I haven’t had time to update in a couple of months!!), I talk about one of your recipes, and one of hers in quick succession. I am currently eating through a batch of your chickpea salad and loving it so much. How fun!


Ashley R May 13, 2015 at 4:41 pm

When I say “both of your cookbooks”, I mean yours, and Ashley’s….. :oP


Kathy May 13, 2015 at 5:30 pm

So my stained, splattered and tattered OSG Cookbook is THE. Most. Used. cookbook (read: only) in our house these days. Not to mention I have the Contessa, Martha, Betty, Nigella, Chloe, Essylstyn, and a host of others in our library. But yours is the one that “gets” what I’m trying to accomplish.

I have an obsession now with eating my way through the blog. Not really, but anymore why look elsewhere when I know what works? Can’t wait for OSG 2.0! :) My only request is to have a hardcover option so it will hold up from incessant culinary pursuits (aka clumsy, messy cook that I am.)


Jen @ sweetgreenkitchen May 13, 2015 at 5:39 pm

I’m truly excited for your next book to come out and enter my kitchen! I love the first one so much and have found a ton of inspiration for my own cooking and of course eating endeavors. I also love getting a behind the scenes sneak peak, that’s always one of the best parts for me. But, for now, please tell me what the trial photo in the middle is of the bar with the layer of chocolate on top, it looks too delicious!


Sagan May 13, 2015 at 7:19 pm

So exciting – congratulations! That must have felt great to have the creative spark get started so quickly. Those photos are going to be GORGEOUS :D


Tara May 13, 2015 at 7:38 pm

You’re amazing Angela! So excited for the new book, Fall 2016 sounds so far away! Enjoy the journey!!


Tammy May 13, 2015 at 7:51 pm

I recently started following your blog and bought your cookbook just last week. I am vegetarian and trying to become vegan. After reading your cookbook I am so excited and feel more positive about making the switch. Your recipes look amazing. I haven’t made any yet as I am compiling my shopping list but I can’t wait for this weekend to get started and try out your recipes. They look better than I expected and I can’t wait to see how they taste.

I am so excited that you will be publishing another cookbook and I can’t wait for it to come out. Best of luck to you!


Amy May 13, 2015 at 8:59 pm

I’m thrilled to hear that soon we will be able to enjoy more of your delicious recipes in another attractive new book. I feel that we sometimes underestimate the importance of beautiful photography in a cookbook. I’ve recycled several cookbooks that were probably full of great recipes, but the extreme close-ups and out of focus shots by over-confident relatives of the author made the food look unappealing. Your partnership is inspiring, your combined talent is overwhelming, and your huge collection of previously posted recipes is enough to keep our bellies full while we wait for fall 2016.


Rebecca M May 13, 2015 at 9:17 pm

Congrats! Cant wait to get this one too :)


Anne May 13, 2015 at 11:31 pm

Oooh, I’ve just seen the food pics and I want to preorder your new book right away! Really looking forward.


Sarah @ Making Thyme for Health May 13, 2015 at 11:59 pm

This is such exciting news! I’m a huge fan of Ashley’s. Her photography is always stunning. I can’t wait to see how it turns out! Eeek, so happy for both of you!


Kari @ bite-sized thoughts May 14, 2015 at 1:48 am

What great news! Congratulations on already pulling so much together, and the photographs you shared are gorgeous (and the dishes they capture look delicious) :)


Sara May 14, 2015 at 1:57 am

So happy reading this, I could cry!!! I have followed you before book number one and I just have to say WOW!! Thank you for continuing to inspire me, and I’m sure thousands more. You’re endurance and creativity is so encouraging!

Cannot wait to see more of you on the blog, best wishes always! XO from Texas


Alex @ True Femme May 14, 2015 at 11:30 am

I’m so excited for your next cookbook and your collaboration with Ashley sounds like a great match! It’s so inspiring to me to have followed your journey for so many years and to have seen you become so successful at something you love. Thanks for doing what you do, Angela!


Kate May 14, 2015 at 2:42 pm

So awesome, you two! Can’t wait to see the finished product!


Spencer May 14, 2015 at 2:51 pm

As a single male, mid-twenties finance professional with no blog, background in food, or any real skill in the kitchen, I probably don’t fit into your normal reader group (based on the previous 50 comments). But your blog and cookbook have made a believer out of me for amazing, whole food recipes that taste incredible. I try to whip up a new recipe or two each week and admit it’s hard to keep trying new ones after getting hooked on a recipe I really like. I am absolutely pumped for your second cookbook to come out! Thanks for the inspiration!


Laura (Blogging Over Thyme) May 14, 2015 at 7:51 pm

So exciting for both of you! I still remember reading those posts when you guys first met up! Good lord, that seems like forever ago :)


Julie May 14, 2015 at 10:16 pm

Please tell your publishers that we want your books translated to French! I want to buy one for my friend. She’s trying to incorporate more vegetarian meals for her family of 4 children. However, her English is just ok. So please, please, we need them in French. :)


Em @ Love A Latte May 15, 2015 at 8:24 am

I am SO excited you are going to come out with another book! Your first cookbook is fantastic. I make the smoothie recipes everyday and those brownies are the absolute best. Everyone I make them for just loves them. Hope all is well with your sweet baby girl! Are you going to do any posts of food for her? I have a 9 month old and I just love your take on food. Thanks!!


suzanne May 15, 2015 at 9:20 am

Congratulations Angela – I am so happy for you that it is going so well . Your choice to wait until you felt the creative spark will surely come across in the book and make it that much more glorious!!! And what a gift to share this project with a friend – things are just falling into place as you create from your heart. :)


Tania May 15, 2015 at 12:43 pm

I am so excited you are going to publish again!!! I adore your first cookbook so I can’t wait to get your second one! Maybe there is a baby/toddler and kid healthy recipe book too in your future! :-) Keep up the awesome work. You are a true inspiration.


hira May 16, 2015 at 4:49 am

Great news and amazing team. Cant wait for more recipes.
Dear readers, I am starting my new health blog, do have a look and drop in any nutrition or health relatedquestions you may have at:


Christine (The Raw Project) May 16, 2015 at 9:23 am

So exciting, can’t wait for the next book!


Athletic Avocado May 17, 2015 at 4:14 pm

I can’t wait for this new cookbook! It’s going to be amazing!!! :)


kimmythevegan May 17, 2015 at 9:18 pm

Congratulations Angela! This is exciting news =)


Raincakes May 18, 2015 at 2:20 pm

Congratulations! I’m excited. I recently got my hands on your first cookbook and I absolutely love it. The cauliflower mashed potatoes and mushroom gravy especially. Such wonderful recipes, thank-you!

While I LOVE your photography, I really admire Ashley’s photos as well! I’m excited to see what kind of gorgeous shots she captures for the book! Can’t wait for it to come out!

Hi Angela,
I’m a big fan of your work! Thanks for spreading the benefits of a plant based diet with the world and congrats on your second cookbook. I’m apologize for emailing you through the comments sections. I don’t have a RSS account and couldn’t get Eric’s press email to work.

I’ve been vegan since 2002 and am writing a weight loss book.
I recommend your book as my favorite vegan cookbook and suggest the readers to purchase it as a part of my program.
I have a vegan chapter at the end of the book and would love to include a few of your recipes, with your permission and a reference to your book. You can pick the recipes, or I was wondering about your Sweet Potato Black Bean Enchiladas and/or your chickpea salad.

Thanks for your consideration!
Yours in health,

This is so exciting! Your first cookbook continues to be my favorite cookbook of all time and is a constant go-to for delicious and healthy meals! Can’t wait to see the second! :)

You are such an inspiration!

I am soooo looking forward to Cookbook #2! I have purchased “Oh She Glows” 5 TIMES!

…and I wasn’t finished my reply…just got sooo excited!! :)

So as I was saying….Everytime I make something from your book and share the results, everyone loves (whatever it is) and wants the recipe. Then I tell them about your book and how they HAVE to get it…and then I can’t wait for them to get it so I give them mine and I go and get another one! Last time I bought 2 so I would have a back up!

Angela, I have fallen in love with you and your recipes! I’m always flipping through your cookbook for new ideas and inspiration. It’s what helped me become a Vegan. I am beyond excited for your next cookbook to come out, and to hopefully get to make all of your lovely recipes. I wish you all the best.

Hi Angela!
Just wanted to say that I recently bought your last book, and am so pleased with it! I’ve not really been on this blog a lot, but the few recipes I’ve tried from the book so far have been amazing, and will definitely bring me here more often now. I’m moving away from home for the first time in a couple of weeks, and am just transitioning into becoming a vegan, so I could not have discovered you at a better time!
Lots of love and gratitude!

I have about 20 cookbooks in my drawer (wish I had a shelf but hey, space is tight in a Japanese kitchen). Yours sits on top of the stack. When you come out with the second one, that one will sit either just on top of or just under your first. Frankly, I am debating just ditching the others. That’s my not-so-subtle way of saying I love your recipes and can’t wait for the new book! :)

Hi Angela,

I picked up Oh She Glows a year ago and at first only dabbled with a few recipies. Now, a year later, I am obsessed with it!!! Every cooking attempt turns into Christmas morning surprises of extreme taste satisfaction and delight. I am now 95 percent plant based and pulling my hubby along as much as I can.

Thank you!!

Hello from Sydney, Australia! I’m a longtime fan and will preorder this cookbook like I did your first. My favourite part of the OSG cookbook was that everything was pretty much weeknight friendly. I’m not vegan but am a cook from scratch fan, and together with my vegetarian bestie we have never once been disappointed in the delicious flavours, colours and textures of your recipes.
As a Metric user of your recipes however, can I please make a request for dry weight metric measurements rather than fluid volume. A quarter cup of something wet like maple syrup is fine, but 100 grams of something dry is better than a quarter cup of something like flour isn’t as helpful when you can’t tell how firmly packed the measurement is meant to be.

This made me so happy I actually cried! The story and the fact that it has a release date! Xoxo much love from Alberta!!

Hello, I have been following your blog for over a year and half now and purchased your cookbook. I am a guy and I have to say that I really love your cookbook. The flavours mesh so well. I have tried a handful of recipes from your book this far, which is surprising even for me as I don’t stick to just one cookbook. Your cookbook is a keeper and I’m definitely looking forward to your second edition.

Thank you for everything that you do with both your cookbook and your website while juggling your personal life. Keep up the fabulous work!

Hi I would like to know when your 2nd cookbook Oh She Glows Every Day: Quick and Simply Satisfying Plant-based Recipes will be available in Australia stores.Thank you.


Lindsi September 10, 2016 at 8:16 am

When will the newest cookbook be available in hardcover?


Claudia September 21, 2016 at 8:45 pm

Amazing book and truly inspiring. I bought both of your books for my daughter, she loves them and makes all your recipes all the time and has turned into a believer!!!
I wanted to ask if it’s ok for you to tell me where the ankle boots from that you wear with the striped navy dress on page 288 are from? They’re adorable and I’ve been looking everywhere for them and I cant find them!


Angela Liddon October 7, 2016 at 7:34 pm

Hey Claudia, Thank you so much for your kind words! Your comment totally made my day. :) I’m so happy you love the books. The ankle boots are from Aldo if I remember correctly (but I think they are a couple years old now unfortunately).
