I love my vegetables but have always paired them with meat. I would be so excited to win these cookbooks and be able to cook for friends and family, to show them that vegan food is healthier and tastier than the meat they are eating! ”

  1. Anna says:

    Anything from Becks at Not a Rabbit makes me happy, I’ve missed her blogging a lot and it’s great to see her back MoFo’ing as that’s where I first found her blog!

  2. bitt says:

    This mofo post from almost vegan made me happy this week:

    I love reading about her adventures in vegan culinary school.

  3. birdfeed says:

    This post simply because they are the best present cupcakes I think I’ve ever seen!

  4. This South African meal from Vegan Eats and Treats:
    Made me happy. As does winning.

  5. Taymer says:

    Actually the land lord fixed our pipes and finally I have fresh water again after a good 3 weeks. If it is vegan related all the great blogs I have been reading all week instead of cleaning my house and working 😉

  6. Joy Langtry says:

    I enjoyed this post:, and specifically the VooDooToFu link – what made me laugh is that when I got there, the blogger didn’t really like the way the recipe turned out. One of those “the name is better than the thing it refers to” moments.

  7. Celia says:

    Everything from Our life in Sandarna has made me happy this week. My maternal family is Swedish and we had the [decidedly non-veg] versions of some of these foods growing up. I’m so excited to try these versions!

  8. Sara says:

    The non-vegan Thanksgiving meal-cake posted about at makes me VERY happy, because I love a challenge.

    I’ve actively avoided Thanksgiving for years now. Veganizing this beauty might change everything. Stunt baking at its finest.

  9. Michelle P. says:

    I would have to say most definitely, Vegan Life! The recipe for Dad’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Bon Bons is purely amazing. It brought me back to my childhood memories of making buckeyes with my mo. And it also reminded me that everything that was once good, can be made even better once you are vegan!

  10. Nicole says:

    The VeganMoFo post that had me on the edge of my seat was posted by the amazing Christa behind Vancouver’s VeganMania! and the blog Dutchess of Kircaldy:
    Her aglio y olio sauce had me on the edge of my chair. The final pic of her dinner had me drooling all over my keyboard – she can make a dish of pasta, cauliflower, peas, garlic, peas, and sausage a thing of daydreams. Plus, she has a fantastic tip on how to use ice water to cool down pasta and do away with rinsing it under cold water!

  11. Winnie says:

    This post from Vegan Etsy made me smile. It is about adopting a turkey for Thanksgiving! I’m planning to do it!

  12. Susannah says:

    Actually, this post is my favorite! As a new vegan, I’m still trying to get a feel for creative dinners. I’m tired of beans and every night! I love my vegetables but have always paired them with meat. I would be so excited to win these cookbooks and be able to cook for friends and family, to show them that vegan food is healthier and tastier than the meat they are eating! 🙂

  13. meansoybean says:

    I have to mention 2 about NYC…

    Vegan à Montréal’s post about Atlas Café, because she has a yummy photo of a vegan Oreo McFlurry:

    And, scrapeater for informing me that Baby Cakes has donuts that I somehow missed last summer:

    I wish we could get both these things in Montreal.

  14. laura8it says:

    I love appetizers of all kinds, but this chocolate peanut carmel corn looks/sounds AMAZING! It’s for sure being added to my holiday baking list!

  15. Jojo says:

    I loved the post about s’mores cookies on Goodbye Texas, Hello PA. They made me drool a little & I can’t wait to try the recipe.

  16. Vivian says:

    Our recent wedding has gifted me with so many new kitchen appliances, cutlery and toys to play with, I’ve been spending more time in the kitchen than ever but have no new recipes to try! I think matching new cookbooks with my new stuff will make this winter the coziest one yet.

  17. Neven says:

    Eat out loud’s vegan halvah made me happy this week. It took me back to my childhood.

  18. Heather says:

    This post made me smile because theres a beautifully drawn “X” over the cooking failure. Though I’m not sure how anything with chickpeas could be considered not delicious.

  19. Tuuli says:

    Reminded me of the market I used to go to when I lived in The Netherlands for a short while…good times.

  20. emily s says:

    Vegan Soundtrack’s post “Thai Inspired Tofu Scramble [The Big Pink]” made me happy because a) I love Thai flavors b) my tofu scramble needed a jolt c) I love Big Pink and D) VeganMoFo helped me discover Vegan Soundtrack this week, which is so awesome:

  21. shellyfish says:

    Vegan Cookbook Critic’s Spreading Joy With Sweets brought me, well, Joy! Lisa gave a great how-to on spreading the vegan word through joyful activism and event organising. IMHO, this is the kind of positive outreach we need to share with the world!

  22. Jacqueline says:

    THIS ONE! I just started following VeganMOFO today! I am somewhat of a vegan virgin so-to-speak and have been researching food and the lifestyle over the past year or so. I’m obsessed with finding recipes and buying cookbooks over the past few months so this post just gave me four new books to check out! Thanks for building my reading collection! It’s too big to keep on the kitchen counter now!

  23. I’ve been loving reading all of the survey answers floating around the vegan blogosphere lately.

    Thanks for offering the giveaway! Both books look great.

  24. MegB says:

    My favorite post this week is SnarkyVegan’s Beer Biscuits with Daiya Cheddar. I literally drooled on myself. Here’s the post:

  25. Shannon says:

    Definitely this one by Bonzai Aphrodite!

    I love all the things she has to say, but this one especially helped me with my will power being a new vegan this month. It’s so logical, but sometimes it’s difficult to see that when you’re craving some cheese. :/ 🙂

  26. Carla says:

    This one only becasue Marmite doesn’t get enough love!!

  27. Nicole says:

    I just really enjoy the precarious tofu press in this post…!

  28. Katie says:

    I liked this post because, although the title is down on itself, wow does a lot of effort go into lunch for those lucky kiddos! How about them checkered apples!

  29. Krista Meany says:

    The recipe for Sloppy Joes on “A Vegan Riot” made me happy because I’ve wanted to make vegan sloppy joes, but didn’t want to use fake meat products to do it. Now, I can make them with tofu!

  30. carmen says:

    i love the way that jojo at is getting some use out of her cookbooks this week.

  31. Amie says:

    The Thanksgiving rules (and the whole post, really) cracked me up. I love her writing style, and the food looks divine!

  32. Megan says:

    The Iron Chef post at DEOTS! ( So many mashed potatoes…so little time…

  33. plamarie says:

    I love any tempeh recipe, I swear.
    This one has made me happy.
    I still need to make it though.

  34. Zoa says:

    I’ve got to say this one, from Dandelion: Rose is on a virtual road trip; every few days she picks a random destination and creates a dish or dishes from the local cuisine. This was a veganized version of a fancy Miami restaurant meal. Her pictures are gorgeous, and the menu–curried winter squash, pan seared hearts of palm, Brussels sprouts, smoky tofu, carrot pickle, what’s not to like?

  35. colleen says:

    the vegan french dip sammie over at meet the shannons makes me really ecstatic! it’s been way to long since i had one, plus i love annie’s writing style

  36. Megan says:

    The update where my vanilla slice got mentioned made me the happiest! Other than that, River from Wing It Vegan’s post about Ricki’s Fudge Nut Clusters… she was totally right about the drooling. 🙂

  37. Clare says:

    I was feeling really depressed and switched off yesterday bust this post made me smile:

  38. KT says:

    DEOTS post from day one made me smile, it’s all about being vegan on a budget!

  39. Lena says:

    Who would not be happy after seeing the Cranberry Chocolate Tartelettes from seitan is my motor? Cranberries with a chocolate crust sound amazing to me.

  40. jill says:

    the cashew korma from isa:

    I plan to make it for my b-day dinner /potluck 🙂

  41. Justin Higinbotham says:

    These coconut pancakes over at Bite Me, I’m Vegan put a smile on my face:

    I’m always looking for improvements on old favorites, as well as recipes that can make a bunch of food to enjoy later in the week/month.

  42. Canuck Vee says:

    That is a link to Don’t Eat Off the Sidewalk’s Paula Deen waffles. Everything that girl do, she do so good. I’m loving her blog big time stylee.

  43. Fanny says:

    this post made me happy, because it looks nasty but seems good in the same time! I can only imagine what a mess I’d make in the kitchen if I tried it.

  44. celyn says:

    I’m loving Jojo’s and Andy Dufresne’s MoFo posts, as well as Milkweed’s and Boober’s. Each of their posts is making me happy! Since I don’t think it’s been linked to yet on this post,

  51. Vegmers says:

    I love idea of fitting more coffee into my day with the Cappuccino Muffins posted over at vegan nom noms. Even better, they include chocolate chips!

  52. Emmy says:

    That is hard! There have been so many good things. The last thing I starred was Manifest Vegan’s Roasted Red Pepper and Garlic Falafel. I love a good falafel so was very excited about this one!

  53. Carola says:

    I really like this post on Totally Veg! It reminded me of the baked apples we used to eat at home when I was little. Luckily, I’m visiting my Mum next weekend, so baked apples is what it will be for pudding on Saturday!


    Cause I’m still fighting with cauliflower, but this recipe is giving me the proper ammunition to conquer my enemy.

  55. phoenix says:

    There were such a lot of MoFo posts that made me happy this week. But today I can safely say, Mo’s Firefly themed meal has made my day. I was having a really bad day, but reading this really improved my mood: :))

  66. Emma says:

    Gosh, so difficult to pick. I only became vegan early this year so vegan mofo is new to me. Absolutely loving it.
    Hmmm, this week I’ve discovered
    It’s making me smile how enthusiastic the author is about discovering new vegan recipes, I feel the exact same way all the time!

  67. Timberly says:

    This post from vegan in the sun made me really happy. Like more happy than normal people get over quiche. Quiche mania=quiche euphoria.

  68. Stephanie says:

    Yep, Mo’s Firefly post also won me over this week. It made me happy in my heart:

  69. Chloe says:

    I like to rap, sing, and chant about food to my kids (who love it), so I was happy to learn that someone else raps about food. My older son really liked my rendition of it. My husband was not so impressed.

  70. Mandi says:

    The post on “sweet vegan eats!” made my morning:
    I was feeling the same way about the weather this morning…excited for winter but not quite ready to give up fall…and she has motivated me to get around to trying those beautiful muffins! I think her picture was just delicious looking, as well. Want those muffins so much….

  71. cakenstein says:

    I hope I’m not to late! I’ve loved two posts so far: because you featured my blog and photograph (bugs on logs)!! I screamed when I saw and called my mom. lame? haha no way! I because I would sell my soul for everything in that post. ooooh those brownies.

  72. Beth says:

    I think the one that really made me happy this week was Kris over at Nomnomnom Blog who posted the classic Steven The Vegan video. It never fails to make me smile! 🙂

  73. veganlisa says:

    First of all Shellyfish – I love you.

    Second, the post that really made me smile this week was the dessert island series on She’s been packing up her must-haves. Very entertaining.

  74. Caren says:

    This post!

    I love seeing how others make recipes from cookbooks I own… so I know how they’re supposed to turn out!

  75. Michael Bennett says:

    My favourite this week was:

    That tofu pocket sandwhich looked delish, and there is no way you could resist the adorable (and drool worthy) tartelettes. Yum!

  76. Lizzie says:

    This one from Rose at Dandelion got me all excited for the peppers that I won’t have again in MN for at least another nine months. (Look at how beautiful they are all washed up in the colander!)

  77. Sarah (appifanie) says:

    Tough call! This one, for having the patience to document the slowness that is making nut/seed butter:

    Or because my bread machine just died and I have to make my own bread now:
