book signing!

13 Sep

We had such a great time at the book signing yesterday! I want to thank everyone who came by and for those of you who decide to cash in your free tattoo coupon, please send me a picture! I’d love to see your food body art! I’m contemplating location of my own food/tribute tattoo… to be announced. 🙂

For those who couldn’t be there, I will be offering a special deal on cookbooks in the next few days… as well as some giveaways!


Yay books!


Books and buttons, including the new “” button featuring Josie!

And me, awkwardly signing books. Public events aren’t really where I shine, but I did have a very fun time! Now it’s time to finish off the leftovers… I’m really bad about over-baking. Better to have more than not enough!

    I’m so sad that I couldn’t be there! I’ve been eyeing your book for a while. Stupid Christmas is so far off! Everything looks great. I especially love the buttons–so cute!

      Christmas time is the best time of year for baking…

    I *love* cookies, and all of those sound fabulous! The scones must be delicious too! Well, I obviously need to get your book sooner rather than later…

      I’m not normally much of a scone person, but I’m really partial to these. They are like snickerdoodles in scone form…

    How cool! Book signing must have been a thrill. What’s the special deal? I was thinking of buying it!

    • Kris September 15, 2009 at 9:08 am #

      The special deal is up now- the book plus the set of nom! nom! nom! buttons for the book cover price (plus shipping).

    Oh, man I wish I could have been there…I am glad it went well!

      I won’t be back to Mpls for awhile, but I was thinking of trying to organize an event when I’m out there… maybe next summer?

    • Courtney September 15, 2009 at 1:02 pm #

      That would be awesome! Totally let me know when/if you are ever in town…Minneapolis is no Portland, but there are so many fun vegan-friendly places to go 🙂

    So glad the signing went well. All that food looks incredible as usual. Your book arrived in the weekend at last so I guess that means I can now attempt to replicate all that baking myself!

    Wow! What a spread, you must have been baking all day! It all looks great! I’ve been thinking about getting your book, I have it in my amazon wish list. I think after seeing all the baked goods spread out so beautifully, that I’m going to be ordering it today! 🙂

    • Kris September 15, 2009 at 9:07 am #

      Nic- another lover of squirrels!

      Thanks and yes, there was a lot of baking going on. I always underestimate how much time and overestimate how much to make, but it’s always really fun.

    you cut your hair short, it’s cute!
    i saw someone today at Sweetpea flipping through your cookbook. glad to hear the book signing went well!

    • Kris September 15, 2009 at 9:06 am #

      That’s so cool! Yes, I couldn’t deal with growing it out any longer. I think I’m just a short hair kind of gal.

    Kris, the whole spread looks delicious! your recipes always come out so well. judging a book by it’s cover and having 2 copies of the old one, i know this one’s just amazing and i can’t wait to get a copy!

      Thank you!

    I got my book shipment today! I can’t wait to give them away to all my carnivore friends and co-workers so they can try these great vegan recipes.

    After seeing all the pictures on here, and more recently, the things you made for the book signing, I am so excited to start baking…and you know me, I’m the girl who thinks from scratch means I added water, put it in the pan and baked it.

    Thanks for the inspiration…not just from the amazing book, but in all things vegan that you do!
