Hugs and a Cookbook For Mom

Happy Mother's Day!

For every mom out there giving daily for your children other loved ones in your lives, I wish you a beautiful day.

I would like to give back to a mom today, and will do so the best way I can - with a free copy of one of my cookbooks.  Many of you already have my books, but maybe someone will win that doesn't - or, maybe you will give the book to another mother in your life!  All you have to do is comment on this post*.  I will announce the winner tomorrow, and will be back to blogging a little later.

And, remember this tip that is good for moms and children alike, and works wonders long after mother's day has passed:  Hug, Repeat Often.  :)

*One comment per person, open to US and Canadian residents.

Happy Mother's Day Dreena! I'm also a vegan mom of 3 vegan kids. My kids LOVE your version of rice crispy treats. Hope you all have a great day.

watching your child grow into a compassionate funny person who loves school & puppies is a big perk of the job. Also introducing her to raw chocolate mousse cake was pretty fun!

radioactivegan said...

I would love to give any of your cookbooks to my mom! She'd love them so much. Thanks! and happy mother's day!

angie said...

OH, I would love a new cookbook from you. Fingers crossed. Hope you have a super Mothers Day!!!

Lking said...

The perks of Motherhood are indescribable!!!
I wish all those who choose not to be "Mom" knew what they are missing!!

Same goes for fatherhood. My present husband has no children and it is hard for him to understand the relationship between parents and children. He loves my children very much though and they love him too!

My first husband passed away after 45+ years of marriage, father of my three children.

Praise God that I met up with another wonderful man,
We became Vegan over 6 years ago and never looked back.
I have your book,The Everyday Vegan, Love it! Would love to win one of your other cookbooks.

Happy Mother's Day to you!!! Hope you have a blessed one!

My mother would love one of your cookooks! I eat the sweet and sour tempeh and sweet potatoes as often as possible, and I'd like to be able to share it with her.

~Kris said...

Happy Mothers day to you also!

Emma said...

My copy of EDBV is literally falling apart from so much use.
Happy Mother's day to you (you're an inspirational mother, I look forward to feeding my son all of your delicious recipes once he is old enough to start on food).

Emie said...

Thanks for the giveaway.

Bumme said...

wow! Happy Mother's Day to you too! How sweet that you're going to give away a cookbook (and, ahem, I would love one!) ... we moms have to stick together!

Chrysalis said...

I became a mother on April 12 for the first time. What an honor! I now more fully understand my mother's love for me. We want to raise our baby girl to love lots, hug lots, and have healthy habits so she can live long ( like eating vegan).

Franklin said...

I would love to receive your cookbook! I heard about you from KD of Your Daily Vegan.

Happy Mothers day, thank you for this opportunity!

Prix! said...

I'd love to win the cookbook for mom! Even though she loves cooking, she almost always has trouble coming up with a completely vegan meal so this would be the perfect gift for her ;)

Vanilla Swirl said...

Am I eligible if I'm a teen? I would like to surprise my mom ;) (chocolate is getting old...)

Myriam said...

Happy Mother's Day to all of you vegan moms out there! Keep feeding your kids with love and respect. Thank you Dreena for helping us do that is such a delicious way!

Robin said...

Love the hug tip : ] I grew up in the conservative NE where I think everyone could use more physical expression of love. Thanks for the giveaway, and Happy Mother's Day times 3!

RochelleK said...

You are always giving! What a wonderful quality. I do actually own all of your cookbooks, but I do indeed know a few moms who would cherish one of your books if I were to win. =)

Michelle M. said...

Happy Mother's Day! I think being a mother is one of the most challenging roles but also the most rewarding!

Josiane said...

Happy Mother's Day to you, Dreena!
I'm not a mom myself, but I know one to whom I'd be happy to give one of your books, and I know she would really appreciate receiving it. It would help that omnivore mom find fresh ideas for meals that would please the whole family, including her vegetarian husband and one of their sons who is allergic to dairy and eggs. :)

jose said...

happy mothers day, my momma would love a new cookbook.

Anya said...

I was just telling my husband that I want a Vegan cookbook to try my hand at a healthier lifestyle for our family!

Carla said...

Happy Mother's Day back at you!
I didn't get a lie in, but am hoping for an afternoon nap.....

Keri - I Eat Trees said...

Aww, Happy Mother's Day, Dreena!

carly said...

happy mother's day! i'd like to win this to give to my mom, who is trying to better understand my veganism and always struggles with what to cook for me when i'm home :)

Jennifer said...

I would L-O-V-E to win a book!
Happy Mother's Day to all. I'm a SAHM to a two-and-a-half year old, and I've been enjoying a morning of relaxation while my husband does the cooking today. It's been really nice!

michelle {the lively kitchen} said...

Happy Mother's Day to you! Thanks for the inspiration you provide to me and so many others.

Melissa said...

I normally just read the blog, but I figured for a chance to win a cookbook I'll actually post something. :-)

Thanks for all you've done for vegan cooking!

Cailey said...

Love your blog!

Andrea Staff said...

Happy Mother`s Day Dreena!!! One way or another, I`m gonna HAVE your cookbook. You`ve changed my life... I can`t even imagine how much love, support, dedication, and sacrifice you give to your family every day. Lots of love to you and yours!!!

Karen said...

Thanks for inspiring me to be a better mom by giving me delicious, nutritious recipes to make for my family. My two young boys love everything I make from your cookbooks! Happy Mother's Day!

Jade said...

Happy Mother's Day! I have been enjoying your blog for some time now. I am also a vegan mom of three. Although my kids aren't vegan, they often enjoy my vegan recipes, some that I get from you!

Angelique said...

Happy Mother's Day! :)

Jennifer said...

Just came across your blog today, recommended by the article "50 Yummy vegan and Vegtarian Blogs" on the Guide to Culinary School website. I'm glad that I did. I've bookmarked it now as a favorite. I've just decided this weekend to give up meat...and am now trying to persuade my family (husband and 3 sons) to join me. Wish me luck! Thanks, jmaslink@gmail.com

almiragoesvegan said...

My mother is amazing. When I came home announcing my new-found vegansism a little over a year ago, she hopped right on board just as she did 14 years ago when I decided to no longer eat meat. I am proud to say she is now 99% vegan and has veganized many of our family's favourite meals. She truly is superwoman.

Edamommy said...

Happy Mother's Day! I love the idea - finger's crossed!

Ames said...

Happy Mother's Day to you too!

veggiefoodforfive said...

What a great way to celebrate Mother's Day - with one of your books!

Stacey Jones-Rosenberg said...

Hope you had a wonderful day! This was my very first mothers day- Nolan was born 6 weeks ago ;) I now understand what all the fuss is about- being a mom is truly the best and most important thing in my life! I'm looking forward to more posts and new cookbooks from you as my vegan baby boy grows up! Thanks for all that you do, you're an inspiration!

Junia said...

happy mother's day!! :)

makinglifeahappytime said...

Nope, don't have any of your books! Would love one though :) Thanks and Happy Mother's Day to all the lovely vegan mommies out there! (Well, and of course, omni mommies too *lol*)

runnerpaige said...

Happy Mothers Day! and no I don't have any of your cookbooks so I promise to over-use it if I get one :)

Jennifer @ kidoing! said...

Happy Mother's Day! I would love to gift one of your cookbooks to a friend since I have them already. Thanks!

Smug said...

without my daughter I would not be able to celebrate Mother's Day, so here is to her!! My love, My joy, My life!!

The Preppy Vegan said...

Love the comic you included here. I would love one of your cookbooks!

Shannon said...

Happy Mother's Day!! I would love a cookbook. I don't have one of yours yet! :)

JASSandMoo said...

How lovely! Happy Mother's Day to you too!

Mary said...

I would love to share one of your cook books with my mother in law! Happy Mothers Day to you!

Suzanne said...

Don't know if it's too late for the contest but I just saw this in my inbox and I would LOVE another book. I am not a Vegan but have recently found that I don't tolerat dairy well. I have a lot of cookbooks but they include dairy of some sort or other. And then in 5 days I came across reference to your books about 4 times. Thought it couldn't be a coincidence and bought Eat drink and be Vegan and I LOVE it. Even my husband (who is definately not vegan or anything close) will go back for seconds. It is officially my most yummy cookbook. thanks. Suzanne
