It's been almost a year since I posted here! Why?
Well, I definitely wasn't taking a blogging vacation. No, I've been blogging at Plant-Powered Kitchen. I'm there - but you aren't! I realized recently that 1000s of you are missing my posts.
I have been posting new recipes, hosting giveaways, and talking all about leafy greens and ditching dairy - and more!
So, jump over and subscribe to Plant-Powered Kitchen.&nbs
Hello my friends, thank you for hanging in with me for news on the revised printing of Let Them Eat Vegan.
At last, I can tell you that the official release date is May 1st! Hurrah!
Any one that currently has a copy of LTEV, if you would like to exchange it for the new printing, you will have that option. You can return it to the place of purchase, as accounts have been made aware and should honor return/replacemen
Last summer I shared a recipe with you for "DJ's Hummus Salad Dressing". The recipe made its way into Let Them Eat Vegan, and today I decided to remind to make this scrumptious salad dressing through a video:
One note: I did forget to mention adding dijon mustard to the blend, but as you can see in the recipe, it's there!
p.s. This recipe was originally titled simply "Hummus Salad Dressing". I figured since the recipe w
Yesterday was pretty special for me. I met and talked with Dr. Barnard for the first time! Let's set the scene, shall we?...
I knew he was coming to town to do a couple of talks, one at Whole Foods. In fact, I learned about it through my contact (Jill Eckart) with PCRM since I was working on recipes for the April Kickstart program. As the weekend approached I e-mailed Jill asking if I might be able to grab a few minutes to meet Dr. Barnard before his talk. &n
I haven't posted for a while, because I thought I'd be ready to launch my new website. With Let Them Eat Vegan in reprint (details soon), I've decided to continue developing the new site.
For now, I'm hanging in with my little blog for just a while longer, and have some exciting news today!
I am now a recipe contributor for PCRM’s 21-Day Kickstart! My recipes will appear in the Spring Kickstart program, which - kicks off! - on April 2nd.
I am so excited about this o
I think I am getting sentimental as I say goodbye to my little blog. I'll be switching over to my new domain soon (details coming). As I wind down this chapter, I am feeling reflective - and appreciative.
This may be the last signifcant-content post on my blog, and I want to talk about friendship. Told you I'm feeling sentimental. "Talk amongst yourselves"! ;)
I have two long-time, close buddies, Tanya and Vicki. Many of you know
I've been thinking about this post for a long time. Probably as long as I've been blogging (which is a long time now). After being part of the "Circle of Moms" contest last month, it really hit home how much I talk about my girls - but never show you who they are. Well, there's a reason.
We hadn't yet started a family with the release of my first cookbook (The Everyday Vegan) - but had our first baby shortly after. By the time my second cookbook (Vi
Baked Better is a young Brooklyn-based company that makes bread mixes. Not like the ones you've seen collecting dust in the grocery store. These bread mixes are special, because they are vegan, organic, preservative-free, sugar-free and whole-grain.
The company began with two friends who shared a passion for baking and eating healthy. After years of baking homemade bread for their friends and family in New York, they wanted to bring bread-baking back
I have been logging a lot of computer hours lately. For good reason, as I'm working on my new website as well as some marketing details for the release of Let Them Eat Vegan. (reminder, if you haven't picked up a copy, if you can hold off and mark your calendars for March 13th - please buy then... details very soon!)
But funny, when I had a quick search for images of moms on computers and working from home, I came up with this:
and even THIS!Really?! &nbs
After a day indulging in chocolate and other Valentine's treats, perhaps you're looking for a dinner that is bright, lively, energizing, and 'clean'.
These Sesame Lime Soba Noodles are just what this vegan mama ordered!

Before I talk Valentines, this is the last time I ask for your votes in the Circle of Moms contest. Thank heavens says you - and me! Too bad this vegan mama of three didn't pull up, but I would have needed some 'divine interellenvention' to do so. For those of you that were sharing and retweeting and trying to bring in more votes, you know I'm appreciative, and just sorry I couldn't do more.
Now on to Valentine's...
This is a soup I have loved for a long time, since I first created it for Vive le Vegan! 3-Bean Curry Tomato Soup.
Why the love? Well, it's full o' beans. Just like me. :) With all those beans and veggies and spices, you know it is good for you! And, you feel good after eating it. Plus, it comes together in a snap, and you'll have enough to freeze for dinner another night.
As much as I love this soup, it's not always a 'first-choice' s

Vegveeta Dip, photo by Hannah KaminskyA little birdy told me that some of you haven't been voting in the Circle of Moms contest. *gasp!* That chapter on hummus in ed&bv must be worth a few clicks! And, Vegveeta Dip?! Even my editor is hooked on the stuff! I know you can show a little more love.
Hello my friends! Once upon a time we did a giveaway with Silver Hills Bakery.
We reconnected recently when they asked to use my "Fantastic French Toast" recipe in an article reprint. Silver Hills has a new line of gluten-free breads, and they paired their gf-breads with my french toast recipe in this article. Nice coupling! And, you can get the recipe in this Impact Magazine article!
Have you heard of the Everyday Gourmet Vegan Bakery? Time to get sweet on them, folks! I received an e-mail from the owner, Charlene, last week. When I mentioned I was doing a series of giveaway posts to celebrate the launch of Let Them Eat Vegan, she jumped in with an offer (there are some very cool people and companies in the vegan world)!
Based out of New York, the Everyday Gourmet Vegan Bakery offers muffins, cookies, cakes, and brownies, all made with vegan, org
Almost four years in the making...
I love this cover. It is sharp and bright and feels fresh, vibrant, and alive! Just the message I want to communicate with this book.
And, the theme of "Plant-Powered" runs throughout the book. These are nutritionally dense recipes, made with the vegan basics - whole grains and whole-grain products, beans, seeds, nuts, vegetables and fruits. Yes, there are sweets, but even these I've made with healthier optio
In time for Valentine's Day, Fair Trade USA has posted a Valentine's Day gift guide. Not all of the items in their guide are vegan, but there are a few, and some different options (like the "Helping Haiti" bouquet).
And, the folks at Fair Trade USA are giving away 5 Alter Eco Dark Chocolate Quinoa bars to my readers! To enter, go to my facebook page and comment on the "chocolate giveaway" post. I am encouraging you to join my new fb page a

This giveaway is JUST in time for Valentine's... and if you're lucky, you can cook from Dynise's Valentine's Day recipes, including: "Easy Framboise Spritzer", "Crostini with Avocado Mousse", "Seitan with Porcini M
Celebrate Vegan is the second cookbook by Dynise Balcavage. Many of you know and love Dynise, from her Urban Vegan blog and first book, The Urban Vegan.
Celebrate Vegan steps into just what the title suggests... party fare! It's not necessarily traditional celebrations either, like Christmas and Thanksgiving. While Dynise offers some recipes for these holidays, there is far more devoted to other less-observed religious and non-religious, international, and culturally-defi
I'm doing some vegan housekeeping. Or rather, some planning and restructuring for the launch of Let Them Eat Vegan. It will be on shelves in just over a month, but you can preorder now!
With the release of the book, I will be launching a new website, which will give you more features as a reader... and me, a pretty new homepage! :)
I have also created a new facebook page. Please link through and "like" to stay up to date
