Return of the Vegan Cookbook

Doesn't that sound like a movie sequel? A film we'd like, right?! :)

At long last, ed&bv is in stock and shipping on Amazon. And since over 1/2 of our reprint was quickly distributed to fill back orders with Amazon and other sellers, we have now ordered a 3rd printing for ed&bv (to prevent a repeat of the shortage these last couple of months). But, just in case, be sure to place your order for ed&bv now if you have been thinking of picking it up.

And for those of you that have already ordered, thank you very much for your patience waiting for your shipment. You should be able to get a shipping update from Amazon now... and hopefully open a box to see that bright green cover any day now! YaaaaY!

Dreena, What are you planning on making for Easter?

Dreena said...

omg, I haven't even thought about that yet!! We've had a really hectic week - well more than a week, and so I've only started to prepare as 'Easter Bunny'... not as the cook! hmmm, will have to think and get back to you. What are you thinking about doing?

Dreena, I made the blueberry squares from foodtv last night... soooo good! My husband said, "this is a real dessert!" (not like a lot of the gluten-free stuff I attempt!). We also had the pureed sweet potato and chickpea soup from EDBV for dinner, which I have made many times! Delish!

Michelle was kind enough to bring me some of the blueberry squares to taste. Oh my! So sweet and decadent.

As for Easter, not sure. My mom will be hosting so she's planning on making a traditional Easter dinner. Of course, when you're Italian "traditional Easter dinner" is different than most folks. I'm sure there will be a pasta dish. :-) I would like to bring something that I can eat and everybody can try and exclain, "Oh my! That's delicious!"

My copy of EDBV arrived today - first impression: gorgeous to look at, great colour choice for cover and the layout and typography make it easy and enjoyable to read. The recipes look amazing - I don't know what to try first!

Dreena said...

Michelle, I'm really glad you liked them and thought they compared to a standard type of dessert. I didn't make them overly sweet, since I think often we can go too heavy on sweeteners with berry desserts and miss out on the flavor of the berries themselves - so hearing you and our veg next door enjoyed them (and that they still hit the sweet spot) is music to my ears! And aren't you kind to share?!

vnd, what kind of pasta dish might be traditional for you to have at Easter... mostly just curious... like a creamy pasta, or something more savory and in a tomato sauce... cut pastas, or stuffed??

YEAH! Marika, that's definitely welcome news!! If you want to get a quick glimpse of some of the recipes, you can click the flickr badge for the ed&bv recipes on the right sidebar of my blog. It will give you photos of most of the recipes I've blogged about to date. You can also search on "ed&bv" or "eat drink & be vegan" in the blogger search bar to get more detail - though it *will* bring up a lotta, lotta posts!! Have fun breaking in the book!

Marika said...

THANKS for the tip Dreena! The flickr photos are awesome. I can't wait to jump in and report back :)

Hi,

My mom only uses homemade tomato sauce. I think she doesn't use a cream sauce b/c where she's from in Italy doesn't use it.

As for the holidays, she'll serve any kind of pasta. Sometimes it's lasagne, stuffed cannelloni, fettucine or gnocchi. It's whatever she has in the freezer. This pasta is a first course along with other courses. She's a mom and Italian so there's no shortage of food.

The Veg Next Door said...

As it turns out my mom is doing away with the pasta this Easter and serving veg friendly sushi. She just taught herself how to prepare sushi and serves it whenever possible. I guess Easter is a good time. :-)

Congrats on all your success! I love your books.

Dreena said...

Veg next door, my, that's quite a stretch then I imagine, huh... for your mom to break that tradition and make sushi?? I still haven't found a love for sushi. I'd like to, but it makes me feel a bit ill. But, I know SO many people love it, and sounds like you'll have a great Easter with some good veg foods. Yay for your mom!! :)

Amazon delivered at long last - it's fantastic, totally worth the wait! Can't wait to get started....

Dreena said...

Awww, thanks John. I'm glad your first impression is such a good one... lovely to hear. Thanks for being so patient, and I hope ed&bv serves your kitchen well! :)

Just wanted to say thanks for the great recipes. I just bought both ed&bv and Everyday Vegan. After trying three recipes in one night, I'm hooked.
It's also really refreshing to be able to find ingredients you list since I live in the Lower Mainland too.
Now I can't wait to make the chocolate raspberry truffle tart.
I'm salivating just reading the recipe.

Thanks again, and happy cooking!
