CLOSED! Winner announced!! - Happy Herbivore Cookbook Giveaway!

This contest is now closed!!!
Thank you to everyone that entered.
The winner is Crys (@Crys_AW) ~ watch your email! You are the lucky entrant chosen by Random.org.

Don't worry, this beat-up copy is mine. You'll get one free of crumbs and stuck-together pages.
I've been toying with the idea of doing a cookbook giveaway for a while now. And I'm truly smitten with 3 cookbooks right now, so it was hell trying to decide which one to do the giveaway for. I decided on The Happy Herbivore cookbook for a couple of reasons.
  • I love that the recipes are all so easy and taste great.
  • Most take less than an hour start to finish.
  • They use everyday ingredients that I can find in my regular grocery store and don't cost me a fortune to buy. I think this one is my most important reason because I hate driving an hour down to WholeFoods for specialty ingredients that end up costing a ton. 
So, here we have it. That's why I love this book so much. And, if you read this blog semi-regularly, you know that I always alter recipes from cookbooks to fit my tastes, and with this book, I alter very little. Mostly, I add more garlic and salt because that's just how I am. Deal with it.

Here are some of my favorite recipes I've made so far in no particular order:
I won't lie. I was skeptical of the French Toast, but it's awesome!
Okay, I can't find red lentils, so I make it was regular ones, and it's still very tasty.
The Mushroom Burgers are my favorite. Best burgers yet.
I do alter the tuna, adding sunflower seeds, but it is a lunch staple for me.
The Baked Shells and Cheese is pretty tasty, I added spicy mustard and more garlic.
I can't resist the Cinnamon-Sugar Tortilla Chips. Too much tastiness.
Oh, wait, maybe this Cheater pad Thai is my most favorite. Eek, I can't decide!

Up for grabs is 1 brand spanking new copy of The Happy Herbivore Cookbook, provided by yours truly. I guarantee it will be free of crumbs and miscellanous splatters. I can only do shipping to US and Canada at this time because it is just too damn expensive to send anywhere else. I'm sure you understand. And if you don't, well, that's just too bad, my friends.

  2. I hear about your success with making several of the recipes from this book. I so need to get more recipes, such as from this book, to broaden my vegan plate :-)

  5. I'm also a compulsive recipe-alterer. Even perfectly delicious, tried-and-true dishes will often get tweaked, simply because I just can't help but do something different to them.

    Anyway, I just entered the giveaway. :) I love cookbooks in general and have had my eye on this one for awhile.

  6. Hearing how much you love it helps. However, the fact that the ingredients are standard & most of the recipes are fairly quick to put together, well that's a song I can dance to!

  11. Amy's Mac & Cheese is my downfall-I slide down that slippery slope! 95% of the time I'm actually vegan. The Happy Herbivore sounds great-I want to try the Shells & Cheese recipe!

  14. Would love to have some more great vegan recipes. I've heard great things about this cookbook. The "Tuna" Salad sounds interesting. Anything that's become your staple lunch must be great. And try to find some red lentils; they are wonderful. They cook down into a silky, smooth puree and taste great with all sorts of seasonings. My tiny grocery store stocks them along with the bags of dried beans.

  15. I'm headed off to start graduate school, and I'm sure I won't have as much time to cook as I do now. I'd love a cookbook where the majority of recipes take less than an hour!

  16. I entered and Tweeted! I love all the recipes you post on Twitter, so I'd love to have the book that contains the secrets to most of them!

  32. Thanks for the chance to win the book. I am a new vegan & this cookbook would be great since I have to follow a low fat diet for medical reasons!

  40. All the recipes on the blog are so yumilicious (word i just made up) I'd love to try the cookbook. It's food like this that proves that vegans don't just eat twigs and leaves.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Haha! Just found your blog and LOVE your snarky attitude. I'm all for extra salt too. I entered the giveaway and would like the book because I've been a vegetarian for two years, but want to switch over to being a vegan. I need easy recipes with simple ingredients because I have fibromyalgia and am limited as to how much shopping and prepping and cooking I can do. Plus, I like that Happy Herbivore shows calorie counts with her recipes because I am trying to lose about thirty pounds, so I need to track calories too, and I've noticed that alot of vegetarian and vegan cookbooks don't offer that information.

  42. I entered because I would love this book. It sounds like a bunch of great recipes. I love to cook and try to keep all my cookbooks vegan these days.
