When I first decided I wanted to go vegan and, you know, do some research about what I was getting myself in to, the first vegan blog I discovered was Have Cake, Will Travel. I thought (and still think) that Celine was a friggin’ genius who not only took amazing photographs, but also came up with the best recipes for treats. Through Celine’s blog and her old LiveJournal account, I found several other vegan bloggers and found a community that I quite liked. I do want to point out that yes, I did already know about Isa, but for some reason, I never got sucked into the PPK Forum like a lot of other vegan bloggers have.
Anyways. Celine is awesome. I love the way she writes, the stories she tells about her cats, and the delicious treats she creates. I credit Celine for getting me to try beans in desserts and for pointing out that chocolate and tahini really were made for one another, and for bringing ranger cookies into my life. Because of this blog, I also learned about Just The Food, which made me realize that being vegan doesn’t have to mean you survive on beans and greens, you can indulge in delicious comfort food sometimes too!
Today’s give away is going to be different than any I’ve done in the past. I want you to tell me about your favorite recipes from either OR bothHave Cake, Will Travel and/or from Just The Food and tell me why you love this recipe. This giveaway is my way of introducing you all to two bloggers that I really enjoy following. Please indicate in your comment which book you’d like to win.
Your entry gives you a chance to choose one of the three books these two lovely ladies have co-authored. I’m hoping this will open up the contest to folks who have one or two of Joni and Celine’s books, but not all of them…and to people who haven’t yet purchased these books!
This contest is open until October 20th at Midnight CST and is open to US Residents Only.
For an extra entry AFTER telling me about your favorite recipe, follow me on Twitter and comment with your user name.
