Happy autumn y'all! I don't know what the weather is like where you are but there's an undeniable crispness in the air during my morning commute, and my bike wheels is crunching through more and more crispity brown leaves. YES. I love autumn so much. There's squash, and the last of the really amazing tomatoes and corn, and Halloween, and appley things, and wind, and VEGAN MONTH OF FOOD!
IT'S KELLY'S BIRTHDAY TODAY!! WOO! My baby sister is growing up, which is exciting/terrifying because I swear to god she was like 6 years old yesterday. How she got into bars with me I DON'T KNOW MAYBE IT'S TIME TRAVEL but anyway, she deserves a fantastic fucking day and many many hugs and showers of presents. We're going to Millennium tomorrow (for her first time!) so there will be much food scarfing. Anyway HAPPY BIRTHDAY KELL and plz to not throw up on anything in the house if you get drunk tonight k thx.
In other news, I have Isa tester photos for you! Gaze upon them and become hungry!
While 2009 has been kind of a shitstorm for me and my family, one of the coolest things going on in my life (and keeping me sane) has been all the recipe testing I've been doing. I'm lucky enough to be testing for Isa Chandra Moskowitz, the woman who with a single book taught me how to cook and embrace veganism.
The new book is slightly different from her previous books, in that it focuses on low-fat, high-fiber, veggie-full fare! It's not a diet book, though; it's got filling servings, gorgeous colors, and ridiculously flavorful sauces; it's for people who want to eat well, not for dropping a few pounds and then going back to stuffing yourself with salt and vinegar chips (not that I, um, do that). And, it's pretty pantry-friendly, too! Win!
So feast (har) your eyes on the deliciousness:
Hope everyone is having a lovely Labor Day! If you're in the states, that is. Monday 3-day-weekends usually throw me off, but I managed to get work done AND take a nap without feeling guilty about it, so I'm doing quite well.
I have some new Vegan Latina testers to throw your way. Terry just keeps impressing us with her delicious creations. I CANNOT wait until this book comes out and I encourage everyone to snatch up a copy (or two) when it does.
