The Getting:
I am woefully behind on saying “thank you” to several bloggers who have passed along some very nice awards to An Unrefined Vegan.  Angela at Canned Time & The Misfit Baker both awarded my blog the Healthy Fun Food Blogger Award.  I like being both healthy and fun.  As part of the award ceremony, I get to do some shameless plugging and share some previous recipes and I’ve selected these five:


I also get to pass along the award with other blogs that I enjoy keeping up with and that are, yes, healthy and fun.  And here are they are:

Simple Vegan Cooking
In Vegetables We Trust
Glue and Glitter
The Road Not Processed

The rules (or suggestions, as I like to think of them) are:

1. Copy the Healthy Fun Food Blogger Award logo and place it in your post.
2. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
3. List 5 favorite fun food recipes from your site.
4. Nominate 3 (or more…) other bloggers for their own Healthy Fun Food Blogger Award, and comment on their blogs to let them know.

I also snagged a couple of Sunshine Awards –  from the aforementioned In Vegetables We Trust – and Earthgiven Kitchen – thank you, Alexander and Sarina!

The Giving:
We’re holding another giveaway on the Virtual Vegan Potluck blog – the winner gets a copy of Forks Over Knives: The Cookbook.  Click here to enter.

And…Somer at Vedged Outis giving away a copy of Lindsay Nixon’s latest cookbook, Happy Herbivore Abroad as part of a 31-day blog tour and giveaway.  Head over to Vedged Out if you’d like a chance to win a copy.  You’ll have another chance to win a copy via my blog on December 16.
