Goodies Waiting @ Home

When we got home, I was thrilled that I had a package waiting for me from Leslie of Eat Peace Please. Just look at the beauty of this necklace & bracelet, and they are even prettier in person. Each stone is beautiful, artfully placed, and of the highest quality that can only come from being carefully hand-made. She has lots of gorgeous pieces to choose from, and maybe one would be perfect for you. Dreena also scored a Leslie original, which you can see here. I also got this organic lavender & flax aromatherapy pillow from her, which is divine. I adore it all! Thanks Leslie! :o)

I won this cookbook on ebay, and it was also waiting for me when we returned. I became interested in Nava Atlas from reading the Vegan Lunch Box. Jennifer has an ad for "The Vegetarian Family Cookbook" also by Nava Atlas, and she says that really most recipes are vegan & raves about how awesome they are. After thumbing through the cookbook, I see that this cookbook is essentially vegan also with little or no modification. Anybody have this cookbook? Summer soup titles include: 'Cream of Green Pea & Cucumber Soup' & 'Zesty Green Gazpacho'. She even has an "Accompaniments" chapter with all sorts of delectable bread recipes. Can't wait to dig in.

Oh, that necklace is a beauty! (well, so are you, what a lovely match!) :)

Leslie is SO talented, I can't wait for her website to go up, and I am keen on getting another necklace from her. She has an eye for selecting and placing stones in stunning pieces.

btw, I think it is the coolest that you and Kleo got to hook up and chat, and that you 'clicked'. How memorable and fun!

I actually do have that soup book and I love it. It comes in handy during the school year when I am looking for a week's worth of lunches to make on Sunday.

I love the necklace and bracelet, too...

Hello! I sometimes check the incoming links on my blog, and there yours was. I clicked on it and saw your comments on my soups book. I have a new edition coming out in September. Same title, but with 20 new recipes and completely veganized!

I would love to send you, and any and all vegan bloggers a review copy of the new edition. Please e-mail me at with your address and I'll put you on my reviewers list.
