Another Dang Giveaway

I haven't been able to keep up with my MoFo this year, but I promised another giveaway and I will do it. I have one last copy of Amey's Vida Vegan Con Zine for one lucky reader. It is chock full of Amey's fabulous drawings with recipes from a number of speakers from the con. All you have to do to enter is to leave a comment here. Contest ends September 28 at 11:59 pm PST. Please make sure I have a way to contact you through the comment you leave.
Edit update!  I will ship internationally, so this is open to everyone.

Awkward Food Photos: Pigs in a Blanket

I love me some food wrapped up in other food. So tasty. A classic example of this is the pig in a blanket. Now, this is a vegan blog so the only pigs in blankets are the ones sleeping at Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary in the big barn. But take any old veggie dog and wrap it with some dough or crescent dough and you go from a boring meal to a fun event in which your tastebuds will be wowed.

But what's with that food porn photo from your bocce potluck? A pile of wrapped dogs in a limpid tupperware that doesn't showcase the fun of eating food wrapped in other food.

This photo needs help!™

Put it on a piece of wood! Nothing says fun like a rustic wooden board. And double wrap those dang dogs. Two in one. Make sure it's a bit blurry or your eyeballs will be burned out by the sheer fun it is emanating.

Awkward Food Photos: Chickpea Salad

   Chickpeas! So tasty, so versatile! The chickpea salad recipe from Vegan With a Vengeance is one of my favourites. Hijiki is where it is at.
    But what horror is this? You end up with is a big tan mash with some delicate black highlights. And a strip of blue in the back because it's part of your tupperware and you didn't want to sacrifice any of that pile o' tan to crop it out.

This photo needs help!

   Slap a copyright on it! Choose a bright color that contrasts and can't be missed. Now you mean business and people are going to take this blog seriously. And big ol' bonus! Now no one can use your photo because it's got your name emblazoned across the bottom.

Hot Damn A Giveaway

I was fortunate to attend the Vida Vegan Con Fun Time Extravaganza this past May. And I was able to pick up an extra copy of Amy's Vida Vegan Con 2013 Cookbooklette, which features recipes from a number of Vida speakers. (Check out Amy's blog Vegan Eats and Treats and her Noshtalgia theme for MoFo.)I thought MoFo would be a grand time to give away a copy of the zine, so all you lucky readers have a chance to get in on this. I'll ship worldwide. No need to like or follow or offer bribes (cookies, you say?). Just leave me a comment and make sure there is a way to get in touch with you. Contest closes at 11:59 pm PST this Saturday, Sept. 7.
Good luck!

Awkward Food Photos: Seitan

Oh heavens! What horror is this? A delicious batch of simmered seitan, straight from that must have cookbook Vegan With a Vengeance. But the flash! The brownness! The lack of any color whatsoever. The 50 year old Revere Ware (for life, baby) instead of a Fancy Pot from Fancy Store.

This photo needs help!

Look at that! Just throw on some random filter you find in your Photoshop and now it looks like a fun pot o' good times. Hell yeah!

I'll be here every Tuesday with more Awkward Food Photos.

Vegan Mofo 2013

It's that time of year again. The mofoiest time of year. Panda With Cookie has officially signed up but for the first time I have no plans and no themes. It has been a busy past month and will be a busy upcoming month but I am hoping to get some mostly humourous posts up here for your reading enjoyment.
We shall see what will come! Cheers!
