Guest Blogger: Vegmom

Today's guest blogger, vegmom, is a super cool runner mom to her vegkid and the family canine. See how HH recipes have brought harmony to their meal times:

VegMom: I think I've made more recipes from your cookbook in two weeks than most of my other books' lifetime! The husband even comes home now asking "what are you trying tonight?" (with excitement instead of worry) and my Vegkid is always holding your cookbook saying "I WANT THIS" and pointing to his new find...

And I say OK, because it is easy and fast, full of goodness and because I CAN!  My kiddo is mostly veg and always dairy-free due to a medical condition, so HH recipes work perfectly.  

Really, your cookbook has made him a very happy camper because he now has the ability to eat mac and cheese. That is a BIG deal for this mom. Mac and cheese was really the only food he ever missed. I've already made your mac and cheese (p.159) 3x in the last two weeks! (He asks for it almost every day!) I have to say thank you 1,000 times! Seeing a smile on my child's face is worth every penny.

I am also thankful that I can make beautiful colorful plates using HH Recipes and suggestions, that even my 8 year old loves. 

My sons plate with mango, asparagus, mashed potatoes & teriyaki chickpeas (p. 127)

Delicious braised asparagus (p.171)

I love the SINGLE serving treats and desserts that the whole family loves! Hello Rootbeer Float cupcakes (p. 214) GENIUS!!! 

I even made some Cinnamon Buns (p.36) with real yeast.. I've never done that before... Oh My YUM! 

And surprise breakfast that made the whole house smell delicious...thank you French Toast (p. 24):

Last night, by the way, we tried the Quick Queso (p. 263)!

Needless to say this Herbivore Family is enjoying every bit of Happy Herbivore Goodness!

HH: I'm so glad you're loving the recipes Vegmom and that your son has his mac n' cheese again! You're very welcome!

Have you made any of these recipes for your family?
