A Pea Worthy Cookbook Giveaway

by Gena on August 16, 2011

Hey all!

Remember May, when I was all stressed out about moving, but took comfort in dinner with my friend Sarah (aka Mama Pea)? You may remember how our friendship inspired me to bake these vegan fig bars, which remain among my proudest baking accomplishments:

Now Sarah’s inspiring me again, with the triumphant and fun-filled publication of her cookbook, Peas and Thank You. It’s a fantastic resource for Moms who are trying to help their families transition into more heavily plant based diets, and it’s filled with fun tips for the home cook (pea points) as well as the intimate stories and images of family life that make Sarah’s blog so touching and fun to read.

The book is also full of mouth-watering photos, which happen to have been taken by another dear friend: Ms. Ashley.

Sarah’s food is accessible, healthy, and 100% family-friendly. If you’d like a chance to discover her recipes for yourself, look no further! At Sarah’s generous behest, I’m offering one lucky Choosing Raw reader a copy of the Peas and Thank You Cookbook. To enter, you can do any or all of the following. They count as separate entries, so please leave a comment on this post for each:

1) Follow Choosing Raw on Twitter.

2) Like Choosing Raw on Facebook.

3) Tweet the following: @choosingraw is giving away a free copy of the @Mama_Pea cookbook. Enter here! http://bit.ly/qsTouL

4) Like Peas and Thank You on Facebook

5) Leave me a comment telling me why you’re excited to own this book.

I’ll announce the winner precisely 1 week from today, on August 23rd.

Tomorrow, expect another Choosing Raw baking venture that’s pea-worthy. And goes really nicely with raw whipped cream.

I’d like to own this book because I’ve (gasp!) never owned a cookbook before. Food blogs all the way. Plus, I’ve gone “officially” 100% vegan (much thanks to you, actually) so it would be cool to own a vegan cookbook :).

I would love to have this book because I find it is quite difficult to find good and ‘easy’ cookbooks that understand the need to a) present the food in a nice way b) show the simple side of cooking and especially c) highlight the fun side of it too!

Isn’t Mama Pea the best! Love her blog! I started reading her blog, probably about a year ago and I absolutely love it. I send my brother there when he wants to make something vegan friendly (he’s a meat eater but trying to go vegetarian). Of course I’d love to win her book also! I follow you on Twitter (stylish1z)

Why am I excited to win this book? Because I cannot wait to try out the amazing recipes that I’ve heard so much about; and Mama Pea and her recipes are a blog world institution now therefore no kitchen should be without her cookboook :)

i LOVE mama peas recipes, i am a vegan that often gets stuck eating frozen vegan products for supper :( i BEGGED my mom to let me buy the book, but she said no, we have enough cookbooks (none of them are healthy vegan ones though) so i said ” But mommm her recipes are my favorites, i’ll make stuff EVERYNIGHTTTTT” she apparently didnt think my fatther would appreciate eating vegan everynight, but i don’t really care, her recipeas are so good i’ll eat the whole things myself
but *sigh* i guess i’ll have to wait till christmas ):
