Sad Nighttime Photo of a Most Delicious Risotto

Dinner, when I most want to be creative in the kitchen, is a terrible time to take photos . . . at least until the summer. But on this wet, dark evening, there's nothing I would rather have eaten than this stupendous leek and mushroom risotto. This is a tester recipe for the Urban Vegan's second cookbook. After tasting this, I am even more excited to continue testing! You are going to like this cookbook.

ps. Bonus small blue elephant to be spotted in the above photo.

Vegan MoFo Giveaway Winners, Take Note!

Almost everything has been sent, and my apologies for the delay. I have forgotten what pain there can be at the end of the semester in grad school.

  • Kitteh: I need your address so I can send you your book!
  • Sin Dawg winners, you'll be receiving your packages this week. The delay is my fault, not the fault of the fantastic people at DKB, so I do apologize!
  • Amey, Islaborg, Haymarket8, and stealth package to Burnaby, your packages went out yesterday.
  • Primal Strips winners and GoMaxGo winners, your packages finally went out earlier in the week.
  • Overseas winners, it seems customs is taking their sweet time. I apologize for the delay. If anything is returned to me, I will be in touch with you individually, but I hope not to have this problem!

I'll be delving into new cookbooks soon, and will be posting. Many thanks to Vegan Cookies for hosting a giveaway that I won (for Tamasin Noyes's American Vegan Kitchen!). I've also got a new camera and a new slow cooker to play with. If anyone has recipe ideas for the slow cooker, I would love to hear!
