The win­ner of the antiox­i­dents book is: Mol­lyG! Yay, Molly! See the end of this post for this week’s giveaway!

Firstly off, for you Harry Pot­ter nerds, today is the anniver­sary of the fall of Volde­mort. Let us cel­e­brate this his­toric occa­sion with the view­ing of the trailer for The Deathly Hal­lows Pt. 2, which was just released late last week.

I had my book sign­ing at Hartwick’s this past Sat­ur­day. Hartwick’s was lit­er­ally one of the very first places I ever came to in Eugene, years before we moved here, and I imme­di­ately fell in love. When debat­ing places to con­tact to arrange a sign­ing, they were at the top of my list. I had a great time, hun­dreds of sam­ples were enjoyed by many Euge­ni­ans and vis­i­tors prep­ping for Sunday’s marathon.

And now, for this week’s give­away, we have another title from Kelly Keough, her pre­vi­ous title Sugar-Free, Gluten-Free Bak­ing and Desserts. It’s all veg­e­tar­ian and mostly vegan and is an excel­lent tome on bak­ing and sweets with no gluten or sugar! How cool is that?!

Leave a com­ment and the win­ner will be drawn and announced next Mon­day, the 9th!

    This book sounds great. I am espe­cially try­ing back off on eat­ing soooo much sugar after that NY Times artice on how sugar is so toxic… :(

  2. Lola78 says:

    I’d really like to win it.
    I’ve just received your sec­ond book (love the first) and I’m hav­ing some prob­lems to decide which one to bake first.…they’re all delicious!!!

  3. FoodFeud says:

    Wow, look at all those shiny new books! My copy of 100 Best is pretty busted by now. That place looks super cute.

  4. Laura says:

    Sugar free and gluten free (and vegan) is the way to go for me!

  5. Liz Dean says:

    Okay, first…HP!!! OMG…I had not seen the trailer yet…sooo excited!

    sec­ond, Con­grats to Molly!

    And third.…your books and treats look so great from the book sign­ing! And Kelly’s book looks awe­some! I am try­ing to go as close to vegan and sugar free as I can…and GF is a must!

  6. Sünne says:

    Oh, that sounds like a great book! I’ve noticed how “sugar-addictedd” I’ve become as of late …

  7. Kate says:

    OMG I have to get that book. We have our old­est child sugar and gluten free and I need more ideas!

  8. Vaala says:

    I am so excited about Harry Pot­ter!!!! Also lov­ing your cake book by the way. Although I was a tester there were still so many I wanted to make but didn’t have time for and now can. Actu­ally I love all your cook­books (and so do my friends, fam­ily and flat­mates because they get to eat what I make!). The choco­late cake in the rice cooker was a huge hit with the flat­mates on Sun­day night although you’d said 8–10 servings…we had it gone in 5 easily!

    • Vaala says:

      And I for­got to men­tion, since one of my flat­mates is gluten-free we’ve been mak­ing most of the recipes with a stan­dard gluten-free flour mix and it’s work­ing magically.

  9. Katherine says:

    I am dying to get some good gf recipes to spark my culi­nary needs

  10. Katie says:

    Sebastian’s b-day cake was awe­some! (Basic choco­late with cream cheese frost­ing.) I’d love to try some sugar-free recipes too, even though I’m a total junkie myself!

  11. Zoe Wild says:

    I first devel­oped food aller­gies in the first grade and have strug­gled with them my whole life. Now a vegan, I am also going gluten and sugar free but I love dessert and pas­try! Ahhhh — all right, I am calm. I look at your cook­books and real­ize that it will all be ok!

  12. Jackie Rolnicki says:

    Well, if this cook­book is half as good as yours, it’s a win­ner. I swear, cook­ies from your cook­book are the only rea­son my fam­ily finally stopped bug­ging me about being a vegan :)

  13. Robin Smith says:

    I love the idea of sugar-free bak­ing! I used to be a FIEND for sugar (there have been entire cans of frost­ing eaten in a sin­gle sit­ting in my life…) but now I feel like it can be such a crutch for desserts — they’re so much more impres­sive when they taste amaz­ing AND are sugar-free!

    Also, I think you mean “tome,” not “tomb,” with regard to Keough’s book : ]

  14. domestic diva says:

    Sounds great! Thanks for the chance.

  15. This book sounds per­fect! I’m wheat-sensitive, and I prob­a­bly con­sume too darn much sugar. Hook me up!

  16. Josiane says:

    What a lovely setup you had for the sign­ing! Those sam­ples look deli­cious — I have no doubt they helped con­vinced peo­ple they needed your books!
    That sugar-free, gluten-free book would be a nice addi­tion to my bookshelves… :)

  17. Cammy says:

    that book sounds really good

  18. Yvonne says:

    I need this no sugar cook­book badly — I have a huge sweet tooth and a really hard time blog­ging and see­ing all those deli­cious baked goods!

  19. Amanda N says:

    Con­grats on the book sign­ing! All of the lit­tle treats you made look del­ish and were pre­sented so sweetly. I just got the book and I can’t wait to start baking!

  20. Courtney says:

    I love me some Harry Pot­ter, lol…I can’t wait for the next movie! I have already reread the book twice :-)

    And con­grats on your book sign­ing! It looks delicious…

    I need that book!!


  21. Linda S. says:

    This cook­book looks awe­some! I’ve been try­ing to cut down on my fat intake in order to lower my cho­les­terol and by keep­ing a daily jour­nal of fat, sugar and calo­ries, that I seem to be able to lower my fat intake but there seems to be way too much sugar in every­thing. I could use some help!

  22. Kate says:

    Bak­ing is my kryp­tonite! I have a few good books, but one area I’d like to expand on in my expo­nen­tially grow­ing col­lec­tion is a bak­ing book with a gluten free focus.

  23. Throuthehaze says:

    This book sounds awesome!

  24. celine says:

    hello there, hot stuff! con­grats on the book, Kris, it looks fantastic.

  25. Ang says:

    I have been wait­ing for your book, can’t wait to try some of the recipes!!!
    Any plans to come to do a book sign­ing in London?
