2015: The Start

It’s hard to believe that I haven’t posted since January, so I’m going to give you a mini recap of what has been happening in our lives lately.

The Great Vegan Protein Book came out.  This book happens to be one of my favorites because it features one of my favorites: seitan! Of course, that’s just one small aspect of the book as any vegan worth his/her kale knows that protein is everywhere. If you haven’t picked it up yet, check it out on Amazon, or even better, your local indie bookstore. If you like what you see, please review it. Or… here’s a sneak attack contest if you’re actually reading this…. just comment below and I’ll mail a copy to one reader in the U.S. Good luck!new-protein-book-72smaller

Jim’s latest CD came out. You can download it here for free. As always, it is not child-friendly.

We got back into the Cleveland Indians after a 20-year hiatus. It’s a long story, and a rather emotional one (in spite of the fact it’s sports-related!), so I’ll just say that we are having a blast watching the team grow and gel. If you want to talk Indians, hit me up!

The latest fun in my kitchen involves sourdough. That one is going to be an upcoming blog post, so stay tuned. I’ve got a book reviews (some overdue) coming up, too, and those include contests. Perhaps some rolls to whet your appetite?

A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of going to Pittsburgh for the Hello Bully fundraiser. Hello Bully does incredible work, and if you’re not familiar with them, check them out. Here we are looking a lot more blurry than we were feeling.

with Jim at Hello Bully!

Happy Spring or is it Summer?! More good things coming here soon, so check back.

    Oh my gosh, you guys looks so freaking GREAT! (blurry and all!) Wonderful to see what’s happening with you. Got Jim’s CD downloaded; can’t wait to listen!

    (no contest for me, you know, I have Proteins in print and e-book)

    Beautiful rolls, too, Tami :)

    :) Thanks, Zsu! Hope you like the CD!

    And as always thanks for all your support.. most of all your friendship.

    PS- Jim said to warn you about the last song. He didn’t swear or have inappropriate material until that one… but there he outdid himself.

    So good to see you back and with the cover of that awesome book to boot!
    Great to have contact on FB so knew you were well and busy.
    The rolls do look divine and I can just taste the sour and crunchy already.

    (As one of the lucky ones to have received the book early, no contest for me.)

    I can’t wait to see your upcoming recipe for sourdough rolls! And the proteins book looks awesome. Using it, I could probably convince some nonvegans to try some more vegan food.

    I’ve been eyeing this cookbook for awhile, but with my husband’s rule “one in, one out” I haven’t bought it yet, cause I can’t imagine what vegan cookbook I’d need to give up to add it to the collection. Yes, I have a vegan cookbook problem!

    Glad for the update. I love the American Vegan Kitchen, and I’m sure I would love The Great Vegan Protein Book too.
