Thank you for your patience, since it took me a little while to prowl through the questions y’all submitted. Below are the prize winning questions! Please OH Please email veganmofoblog at gmail dot com with your full name and snail mail, and soon coconut creamy goodness in the form of Coconut Bliss, will be arrive at your doormat. If you have a doormat.
Please don’t be sad if I didn’t pick your question, I am fickle and fussy at the best of times. Of course, you can be sad if you want to be, your emotions are your own, but that was not my intention. Some of the questions repeated and some I just liked more than others. When the interview is posted, there will be a final giveaway! We have two copies of Louise Hagler’s Tofu Cookery left for grabs, so there’s always that. Then the MoFo biz is really done, at least for a few months. Tho I do speculate, we will continue to offer roundups throughout the year.
