And the giveaway winner is…

…Tait!! Congratulations!! I will be contacting you shortly to arrange shipment of your sweet prize package. I had so much fun learning about everybody’s celebrity crushes. I even added a few new names to my own list. Celebrity crush lists are like grocery lists, they can never be too long. Although the big difference is that I can’t buy Ted Danson at my co-op…

Today is the last day of Vegan MoFo 2012. I managed to post every single day even though a few posts were subpar. That’s adulthood! I hope everybody had fun and learned a lot from reading blogs this past month. I marked new recipes to try, admired beautiful photography, and made some new connections during Vegan MoFo 2012. Hooray for veganism, animal compassion, and delicious food.

Look forward to Vegan Eats World recipe reviews and some other fun stuff in November. Thanks for reading – it means so much!


Winner, Winner!!!

Hey Winner!

Just a quick post to announce the winner of the Make Your Place book giveaway… Random Number Generator says… Comment #24. That’s Kim from the Veg-in-Training blog!!!! Kim’s favorite eco-friendly cleaning tips:  “I am in the lemon/baking soda fan club for cleaning porcelain sinks and tubs. I also like to sprinkle lavender oil in baking soda and use it as a carpet freshener. I use lavender oil and vinegar for fabric softener on occasion too”.  I actually had the pleasure of meeting Kim over the summer when she was in Portland with her husband and she was sweet enough to bring me jalapeno salt and chili powder from Arizona!!! Nice! I will contact you via e-mail Kim so we can arrange shipping of your book. Woohooo!!!! Congratulations!

On a side note, if it’s getting a bit chilly in your neighborhood, make this soup. (You could probably find a tasty bread recipe to go along with it while you are visiting Seitan is My Motor):

Curried Pumpkin Soup with Seitan – A perfectly warming, smoky, spicy, flavorful soup.

And, on Friday I will be hosting yet another giveaway, so keep your eyes on the screen.  Enjoy the rest of your week!

… The winner of my homemade (reusable, washable, eco-friendly) bulk food/produce bags giveaway is commenter #10! Let’s see, that would be the amazingly awesome Shellyfish!!!! Congratulations to you!!! I will contact you via e-mail so we can sort out the details (OK? OK!!).

I would like to thank everybody who left comments about tahini and their favorite recipes that use tahini. The most popular response was hummus. Who am I to argue? I absolutely love hummus. In fact, I am planning on making some roasted red pepper hummus this week! This happens to work out well since I mentioned that the winner’s recipe choice would be featured in an upcoming post, and Shellyfish mentioned hummus as one of her favorites. There were so many delicious-looking recipes (raw bars, noodles, shortbread, cookies, sauces…) left by commenters that I will probably feature more than just hummus in the next few weeks.

I am hoping to step out of my laziness and make a W.I.P. post this evening.

That’s it!


The sun is shining today which makes me think of springtime and new buds.
