MoFo 2012 Wrap Up and Giveaway Winner

Wow! What a month. It was a very fun MoFo for me this year. I was so lucky to be able to have so many great books to give away. I was even luckier to get copies of some of them myself. I am really looking forward to delving deeper into them. It is really hard to pick a favorite.

In the awesome picture category it was a tie between Candle 79 Cookbook and Great Gluten Free Vegan Treats.

In the most cheeky category was The Sexy Vegan Cookbook.

In the most intriguing category there was also a tie between Vegan Eats World and World Vegan Feast. Both made me want to learn more about cuisines around the world.

It was very interesting to study the very different writing styles of the different authors. There were some that just got right to the point with mostly recipes. There were others that provided a lot of reference material and personal insights. What a great variety!

I had a couple of ulterior motives for picking my theme this year. I am a cookbook addict and I thought it would be a great way to scratch that itch. I hope to finish writing my cookbook this next year, so this was a great way to force myself to research different styles and see how mine personal style might fit into a book format. But mostly, I wanted to share some insights and books with you guys! I hope you enjoyed this year's theme as much as I did!

I know there was a lot of great vegan food blogging going on this month, so I truly thank you for coming back and visiting this blog. I hope you will hang around and come back often. I'm pretty sure I will be taking a little break to catch up on things like housework and paying attention to my family and friends and of course, Fred, who always gets neglected during MoFo! I'm ready to do some goofing off!

Don't worry I didn't forget about the giveaway. The final MoFo winner is...

#1 Kate!!!

Congrats Kate. There are indeed some quick and pretty easy options in the book! Please make sure to contact me with your shipping info at vegintraining at gmail dot com.

Everyone please have a safe and fun Halloweeen!


  1. Thanks for all the fun and thoughtful reviews and for sharing so many superyumful recipes! It's really helpful to read vegans' reviews of vegan cookbooks, especially when it comes to finding a specifically themed book like global recipes or burger recipes, etc and it's nice too when choosing holiday gifts for my vegan-wannabe friends and family. :)
    Congrats to Kate! Cheers!

  2. I really enjoyed your blogging and I'm glad MoFo helped me find it. I'm going to stick around to see what else you do.

  3. Thanks you guys!!! You made it fun for me!
