vegan mofo :: grand finale contest! win a copy of my new cookbook (and surprise prize)!

It's here – finally!
I have in my hot little hands a finished copy of my new cookbook, Celebrate Vegan: 200 Life-Affirming Recipes for Occasions Big and Small. It took about 2 years to complete from concept to finish, and seeing it all "grown up" and ready to go out into the world in its own is a bit surreal. And talk about coincidences: the book centers on celebrations and holidays, and my box of authors' copies arrives on Halloween. Spooky!

To celebrate my book of vegan celebrations -- and to mark the end of Vegan Mofo 2011, I am hosting one last, grand finale contest. To enter, simply follow me [@theurbanvegan] on Twitter.   I'll announce winner in a few days. [Please spread the word!]

And as a special added bonus... if you leave a comment here, telling me what you'd like to see more of on my blog [eg, raw recipes, decadent recipes, travel tips], you'll be eligible to win a second, blog-only prize. I'll also announce the blog-only winner –and prize – in a few days.

Happy Halloween and good luck!

Eyeing some tasty raw recipes would be fun but i would also be so tickled if you could provide a good number of tips on traveling as a vegan because that's where I struggle the most!

I really enjoy your restaurant reviews! I'd like to see more of those, whether re-posts from your old blog or new ones :) Even living as near Philly as I do I don't know much about where to go for good veggie food!

Lizzie Bordello said...

Following you on Twitter. :)

I'm always looking for more recipes that are super easy, but so tasty. Lately it seems like I can't find a balance between easy but boring and delicious but time-consuming.

Dawn said...

I already follow you on Twitter, hope that counts since your new book looks amazing and I'm dying to win it!!

More? Vegan versions of local Philly fare (since I am local!) and you do it so well.

Marcella Marsella said...

I'd like to see more soy-free recipes. My system can't process it, and it seems like most vegan cookbooks are packed with soy recipes. I'm feeling a bit left out. :( Help!

JohnP said...

DO I remember that your heritage is partly Eastern European? I'd like to see more from that background. And you have been duly followed on twitter!

Megan said...

The variety of requests is great - what a diverse following.

I am always looking for healthy (low sodium, sugar, fat/high macro & micro nutrients)recipes that are raw, fancy, comfort, fast or all of the above.

Keep 'em coming!

food solutions said...

Good posts on this blog is making me read this post over and over again, I liked this post much. This post has been given all the useful things that I wanted to know about.

JulieR said...

I don't do twitter, but I regaully follow your blog! I would love to continue to see sophisticated recipes that are really easy to pull together. Raw typically doesn't work well, my kids and hubby are allergic to tree nuts and raw recipes are typically so dependent upon nuts.

punkinseeds said...

I love your blog and I love decadent pasta dishes like the creamy Romanesco pasta you just posted!!

That is what I would like to see more of. Please :)

I also always love photos of kitties but then I have five kitties myself so I am a sucker for any kitties.

Ashlee said...

More travel tips. I travel lots and I find it difficult to eat normally!

Not a twitter follower but read your blog regularly :) As a big animal lover I love hearing those types of stories. Love all your stories though ;)
