Z says yay for vegan babies!
Today, May 5, 2011, marks five years of veganjoy.
I want to thank all of you for following, reading, commenting, and sharing my recipes. Since this blog started, I've moved across the country and back again, eaten at more vegan restaurants than I can count, and written a cookbook. I've had two completely vegan pregnancies and begun raising two vegan children. I've made Sticky Toffee Puddings and Carrot Croquettes, Coconut Gelato and Kale Salad. Some years were more productive than others, but I'm really pleased to be here, celebrating five years with all of you.
And there's lots to celebrate this month.
My cookbook is back on Amazon, and will be available in major bookshops this September.
Check out my article on Santa Fe, New Mexico in this month's VegNews. I'm particularly glad to be a contributor following their commitment to use only vegan photography in the magazine.
To celebrate properly, this month will be Cake Month. I'll share some of my favorite cakes, give you a peek into my daughter's frog-themed birthday party, and show you how to build, frost, and decorate cakes for special occasions.
And my favorite thing: my Z (thriving exclusively on vegan breastmilk!) is six months old. He's sitting up, fervently trying to crawl, and absolutely in love with his big sister. Also, too interested in everything to sleep, so there's very little of that around here. But his deeply joyful spirit makes up for lack of rest, and his crazy hair keeps us laughing.
Auburn hair! Where did that come from?
