Giveaway: Sticky Fingers' Sweets Vegan Cookbook--CLOSED!


I've long been an admirer of Sticky Fingers Bakery ever since my first visit to the bakery eons ago, so when I found out that Doron Petersan, the mastermind behind Sticky Fingers, authored a cookbook of one-hundred of her "secret" vegan recipes, I was the first in line waving my credit card ready to buy!


I was very excited to meet Doron at a meet and greet at my local Whole Foods Market. We chatted about exciting topics like adjusting sugars in recipes and the significance of baking times as my children happily gorged themselves on Sticky Fingers' delicious, moist and fudgy brownies (recipe is in the cookbook!). For me, I felt like the equivalent of a comic book nerd talking to my favorite author at Comic-Con.

Luckily for you, she happily suggested that we do a giveaway on the blog and I excitedly said "YES!" Now, here's the best part, you can win one of two cookbooks courtesy of the publisher, Avery/Penguin Group!


"100 Super-Secret Vegan Recipes" is brimming not only with wonderful and accessible recipes but is also chocked-full of great baking tips and techniques and tons of important nutrition information, a detail I really dig. The color photos also make picking a sweet to make pretty simple; you just want to make them all!

Follow the directions below to enter the contest, and if you are an over-acheiver like me, there are some extra credit entries that will allow you to up your chances of winning!


To enter to win one of the two copies of "Sticky Fingers' Sweets: 100 Super-Secret Vegan Recipes" cookbook,  follow the simple steps below! Just remember, you have to leave a comment on this post EVERY TIME you do complete one of the "tasks." There are eight possible entries! Good luck!


To enter:
Please leave a comment below letting everyone know what your favorite vegan dessert is to make or which one you would like to learn how to bake.

  12. I can't choose just one dessert! I guess I'd go with cinnamon rolls, because I eat them very rarely but always enjoy them.

  26. My favorite vegan recipe is one I invented...sort of. It's a blondie/coffee cake recipe using Great Northern beans or Garbanzo beans. The flour source is peanut flour. The sweetener is stevia. Apple sauce serves to replace oil or eggs. It's SO good and SO easy. But I could totally benefit from a cookbook from some professionals to expand my skills!
