We had such a great time at the book sign­ing yes­ter­day! I want to thank every­one who came by and for those of you who decide to cash in your free tat­too coupon, please send me a pic­ture! I’d love to see your food body art! I’m con­tem­plat­ing loca­tion of my own food/tribute tat­too… to be announced. :)

For those who couldn’t be there, I will be offer­ing a spe­cial deal on cook­books in the next few days… as well as some giveaways!


Yay books!

And me, awk­wardly sign­ing books. Pub­lic events aren’t really where I shine, but I did have a very fun time! Now it’s time to fin­ish off the left­overs… I’m really bad about over-baking. Bet­ter to have more than not enough!

    It really was a lovely event. Your spread was incred­i­ble! The cook­book is soooo neat! Can’t wait to make choc. stout bread. And get my free tattoo!!

  3. I’m so sad that I couldn’t be there! I’ve been eye­ing your book for a while. Stu­pid Christ­mas is so far off! Every­thing looks great. I espe­cially love the buttons–so cute!

    I *love* cook­ies, and all of those sound fab­u­lous! The scones must be deli­cious too! Well, I obvi­ously need to get your book sooner rather than later…

      I’m not nor­mally much of a scone per­son, but I’m really par­tial to these. They are like snick­er­doo­dles in scone form…

    How cool! Book sign­ing must have been a thrill. What’s the spe­cial deal? I was think­ing of buy­ing it!

  6. Courtney says:

    Oh, man I wish I could have been there…I am glad it went well!


    • Kris says:

      I won’t be back to Mpls for awhile, but I was think­ing of try­ing to orga­nize an event when I’m out there… maybe next summer?

    • Courtney says:

      That would be awe­some! Totally let me know when/if you are ever in town…Minneapolis is no Port­land, but there are so many fun vegan-friendly places to go :-)


  7. Vaala says:

    So glad the sign­ing went well. All that food looks incred­i­ble as usual. Your book arrived in the week­end at last so I guess that means I can now attempt to repli­cate all that bak­ing myself!

  8. Wow! What a spread, you must have been bak­ing all day! It all looks great! I’ve been think­ing about get­ting your book, I have it in my ama­zon wish list. I think after see­ing all the baked goods spread out so beau­ti­fully, that I’m going to be order­ing it today! :)

    • Kris says:

      Nic– another lover of squirrels!

      Thanks and yes, there was a lot of bak­ing going on. I always under­es­ti­mate how much time and over­es­ti­mate how much to make, but it’s always really fun.

    I got my book ship­ment today! I can’t wait to give them away to all my car­ni­vore friends and co-workers so they can try these great vegan recipes.

    After see­ing all the pic­tures on here, and more recently, the things you made for the book sign­ing, I am so excited to start baking…and you know me, I’m the girl who thinks from scratch means I added water, put it in the pan and baked it.

    Thanks for the inspiration…not just from the amaz­ing book, but in all things vegan that you do!
