Me! Yes, that Pumpkin Carrot Cake you see at right (cover #2) is my photo and recipe! So yes, it’s vegan made, vegan photographed. Hooray and yippee to that!..
UPDATE: It’s official! My photo is the cover!
I’ll gush. I can’t help it. Having one of my photos on the cover of VegNews is one of those “dreams do come true” moments for me.
I remember being sprawled out on my bedroom floor in high school flipping through pages of VegNews and being inspired by this mysterious thing called veganism. I was already well on my way to claiming my full fledged vegetarian status, and so VegNews was really the only place for me to turn in the magazine section (or really any entertainment media) for a little inspiration. I perused veg products, articles, reviews of places I wanted to go someday, books, stories of animal rights and activism and more. To say that VegNews helped inspire me to go vegan is an understatement. So to be on the cover would be a dreamy.
Plus, I am pretty proud of my photo of that Pumpkin Carrot Cake. Don’t worry, the recipe will be in that issue of VegNews – Sep+Oct. My recipe will be in an article featuring “five vegan bloggers and their must-make pumpkin recipes.”
And I must say how incredibly impressed I have been with VegNews for reaching out to vegan photographers and bloggers these last few months. I noticed one comment in the thread asked if the cake was really vegan. Yes! It’s 100% vegan! I know because I made, shot and devoured it 🙂 Bravo VegNews.
