"Make My Monday" Cookbook Giveaway

Welcome to my first “Make My Monday” Giveaway for MoFo.  This week’s prize is a copy of one of my personal favorites: Party Vegan: Fabulous, Fun Food for Every Occasion.  
Did you know that Party Vegan isn’t just about parties?  Organized by menu, this book has you covered for holiday dinners, potlucks, casual get-togethers, or any time at all — even weeknight meals.  Loaded with great tips for entertaining, this giveaway comes just in time for the holidays that are fast approaching — so you can make a batch of Savory Pumpkin Muffins (like this one), along with the rest of the orange and black Halloween menu. 
 If you’d like a chance to win a free copy of Party Vegan, simply leave me a comment at the end of this post with an answer to this question: “What’s your favorite holiday food?”

One lucky winner will be selected at random. And if you want to earn additional entries, you can do any or all of the following, and leave me a comment for each one that you do:
1. Follow me on Twitter: @GlobalVegan
2. Link to this giveaway on Twitter

3. Link to this giveaway on Facebook
4. Link to this giveaway on your blog
The contest closes Sunday Oct 9 at midnight, and the winner will be announced in next Monday’s post, which will also include a new “Make My Monday” Giveaway!  So, enter now:  What’s YOUR favorite holiday food?”

Tis the Season to MoFo!

How appropriate that the Vegan Month of Food begins on World Vegetarian Day!  I’m exciting to be participating in this event for the second year in a row.  This year, I will be assigning a theme to each day of the week.  Here’s what I have planned:
“Slow Cooker Sunday” — Since I almost always use my slow cooker to cook on Sundays, this seemed like an appropriate theme.
“Make My Monday” Cookbook Giveaway  On Monday, Oct. 3 will be the first giveaway, with the winner and next giveaway announced on the following Monday, and so on.
“Tester Recipe Tuesday” — On Tuesdays I will post photos taken by some of my amazing recipe testers, for books past, present, and future, along with recipes.
“Wildcard Wednesday” — from guest posts, to product reviews, to restaurant finds — you never know what Wednesday will bring.
“Food for Thought Thursdays” — on this day you will find cookbook reviews and other vegan food commentary.
“Flashback Friday” — the ghost of blog posts pasts — Fridays will feature some of my favorite blog posts from previous years.  If you’re new to my blog, this is a great way to see what you’ve been missing. 
“Sweet on Saturdays” — It can mean desserts, or it can mean other things I’m sweet on.  It may even include a gratuitous kitty photo because, after all, it’s also “Catterday,” right? 
Since today is Saturday, I’ll close with something “sweet.” Here’s a pic (photo by Kamber Sherrod) of a piece of Short-Cut Baklava, a recipe from my new cookbook, Quick-Fix Vegan.
And because it’s also “Catterday” here’s a cute photo of Gary and Mitski (in case you missed it on Facebook):
Happy MoFo-ing and Happy World Vegetarian Day!
