I have a lot to say in this post... so bear with me folks! (All exciting stuff though!)
First, here is my recipe for Ballpark Italian Sausages! It comes from my e-cookbook Backyard Vegan & it's one of many recipes that's in an e-cookbook but not on this blog or in my upcoming cookbook. The e-cookbooks are only for sale until June 30th so get your copy! (All the proceeds go to the support and maintenance of Happy Herbivore so a special thanks to everyone who has been buying copies!)
Next, BEA! I was at the Book Expo of America yesterday handing out pumpkin-raisin oatmeal cookies (a huge hit!) and sexy postcards for my cookbook. Of course thanks to NYC traffic I was a bit late to my own signing. Whoops.
I finally arrive & notice there was a line of people waiting. I said to my publisher "wait.... those people are here... for ME?! Who paid them!" I was truly shocked (and so flattered) by all the people who came out to see me!
Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU! Your support means everything to me -- I mean it! I was thrilled to meet people who are as excited about the book as I am!!
I also met Terry Hope Romero who was there with her new book and Gary V! As soon as my "signing" ended I ran clear across the expo to where Gary was speaking. I'd missed his speech but caught him as he was leaving. We chatted for a few minutes & I got to personally thank the man who helped change my life (Read his book, Crush It!). Gary if you're reading this, I'd love to cook for you & your family!
Finally, I was also on Healthy Voyager radio last night talking about Happy Herbivore, the upcoming cookbook AND giving out recipes, tips and ideas for summer parties! (Skip ahead to minute 28:00 to hear me).
What are YOU making for Memorial Day? These Italian Sausages I hope!
