And the Winner of The Blooming Platter Cookbook: A Harvest of Seasonal Vegan Recipes Is…

…Brenda Lacasse!

Sometimes 13 IS a lucky number!  I will be mailing Brenda a copy of The Blooming Platter Cookbook as soon as she emails me her address.

The way my truly random selection worked is that I assigned a number 1-19 to each of the comments, first received to most recently received.  Then, thanks to the wonders of, I just plugged in the starting and ending numbers, clicked “generate,” and voila!  Brenda’s number came up.  It’s a really cool simple tool should you ever need a random selection.

As for the rest of you contest entrants, thank you so much for throwing your number in the hat and for “liking” the book.  I look forward to responding to each of your yummy comments individually, and I hope you will be able to snag a copy some other way.

Happy Summer Solstice!  Today is the longest day of the year…more time for cooking and eating…compassionately!

  1. congrats Brenda!!! As a non-vegan in transition I have now put this book on my amazon wishlist. Hoping to learn that there is a better way to eat. Very cool site Betsy

  2. Thanks for commenting Tracey. There are MANY wonderful ways to eat as a vegan. You won’t feel deprived one bit if you find the right recipes, which I trust you will in my cookbook–hopefully someone will snag it for you as a gift–and on my site. Yes, makes these “random selections” a no-brainer. Best wishes with your transition. Please let me know if you have questions/need some support; happy to try to help.
