a friend on facebook points me to this link (scroll down)...
I KNOW! Exciting! Before I explain, I must share how much I adore Ellen. I watch her show while making lunches during the day, and record it for days that I'm running around with the kids. When I was pregnant last year and feeling sick and miserable... and then big and uncomfortable... she brought me laughter and also just an uplifted feeling with the spirit she has and gives to others. I enjoy her chemistry with her staff (especially Tony), her generous nature with her audience and fans, and her clever interaction with her guests. I used to love her Ellen sitcom many years ago as well!
I have contacted Ellen's show quite a few times - in fact, they may have started 'flagging' my e-mails! First off, I sent a mailing of ed&bv soon after it was published. Then, I noticed she was featuring more guests about plant-based/vegan diets, and every time one of those spots aired I fired off an e-mail of gratitude... and also gushed that I would love to be on her show to cook some treats for her and her guests. And, I mailed another copy of ed&bv (along with Vive if my mama memory serves me correctly)!
Now that she is vegan, she is continuing to show more segments about vegan cooking/foods, etc. This past week she had a cooking segment with Wolfgang Puck making veggie pizzas. One of my fb friends, Alison, mentioned this segment in a comment. I noted that I "liked" it on fb... and then Alison replied to me how cool it was to see ed&bv on Ellen's web page. ???!!! I had no idea! Though there's no additional info on ed&bv when you link through to see the list of books in more details, I am stoked to see that ed&bv has somehow reached Ellen.
Let's just say my birthday came a little early this year. :)
