A Pea Worthy Cookbook Giveaway


Hey all!

Remember May, when I was all stressed out about moving, but took comfort in dinner with my friend Sarah (aka Mama Pea)? You may remember how our friendship inspired me to bake these vegan fig bars, which remain among my proudest baking accomplishments:


Now Sarah’s inspiring me again, with the triumphant and fun-filled publication of her cookbook, Peas and Thank You. It’s a fantastic resource for Moms who are trying to help their families transition into more heavily plant based diets, and it’s filled with fun tips for the home cook (pea points) as well as the intimate stories and images of family life that make Sarah’s blog so touching and fun to read.

The book is also full of mouth-watering photos, which happen to have been taken by another dear friend: Ms. Ashley.

  1. I would love to win this cookbook. I have two small children (1 and 4), and am always trying to find new, healthy, plant-based recipes to try.

  2. I love mama pea’s recipes! Everything I’ve made of hers has been fantastic!

  3. I would reallly love to own this cookbook. It would be great to share the recipes with my own friends and family that think vegetarian cooking is “weird” and not as filling as animal-based cooking. I love the fact that one of my favorite bloggers now has a book. I’d love to add it to my collection.

  4. I would love this book because I recently became a vegetarian, though I eat mostly vegan foods. I’m trying to get my family to eat more vegetarian fare and try new things, so this book would really help me out!

  5. What a great giveaway! I have a 5 year old and a 7 year old. Our favorite blogs are Choosing Raw and Peas and Thank You! We would love the cookbook because we’re all vegan and I’m always looking for new recipes for my kids!

  6. I would love to own this cook book because I’m ALWAYS up for cooking vegan πŸ™‚

  7. I already own the Peas and Thank You cookbook and LOVE it, so I would be very excited to win a copy to give to a friend who is struggling to make healthy meals for her children.

  8. I am excited to win this book for many reasons one being I cant affod the extra cash to buy it on my own.
    Two I am turing vegatarian
    Three I want my whole family to turn to vegatarian as well and this is a great way to start.

  9. Peas and Thank You is one of my favorite blogs! Many of the recipies, such as the spicy chick pea stew, are my go tos. My carnivor spouse enjoys recipeas. Curious friends at work have been ‘sampling’ my lunches are beginning to join the vegan movement because of Peas recipeas!

  10. This would be great for my dairy-free husband who really likes meat to try some tasty vegan recipes.

  11. Just “liked” you on Facebook…I have not idea how to Tweet… πŸ™‚

    I am ALWAYS looking for good vegetarian/vegan/raw cookbooks. I have been a vegetarian for about 5 years and am always looking for new and exciting recipes. Most of my family is from North Carolina so I am used to eating LOTS of unhealthy food! I check your blog everday for inspiration and have completely turned my eating style around.

    Now that I have a 7 month old, I am even more motivated to eat healthier and if this cookbook offers solutions for quick and easy meals, it’s for me! I work 9 hours a day and REALLY need more good, quick recipes under my belt. My husband and I want to teach our son healthy habits from the very start so we definitely look to people like you for ideas.

    Thanks for doing what you do!


  12. I would love to own a copy of this book! I didn’t follow her blog but I found the reviews on Amazon to be quite praise-worthy. I love books that have witty anecdotes and beautiful pictures. I am aspiring vegan and this book would be so fun to have!

  13. I am following both CR and P & TY on facebook and twitter…..LOVE both blogs!!! I NEED this book ASAP!!

  15. I am always looking for new cookbooks not only for my family but for the kids I babysit – think peas and thank you could be a winner for both!!

  16. After trying, somewhat unsuccessfully, to cut back on meat, we have decided to simply no longer purchase it at the grocery store. That way it isn’t even an option when I go to make dinner. I would love to have a cookbook like this to inspire me. Love that it is kid friendly.

  17. I am excited to own the book because i want to surprise my girlfriend with a meatless meal that we both will love!

  38. I can’t wait to own this cookbook, because I love the Peas and everything they stand for!

  39. I am excited at the prospect of owning this book because I have been hearing great things about it from so many different sources…it’s crazy.

  40. I would love a copy of this cookbook! With three little ones at home, I am always trying to incorporate more plant based whole foods in their diet.

  43. And lastly, I’m excited to own this book because I LOVE finding new, delicious vegetarian/vegan/raw recipes to enjoy and share the love with my meat-loving boyfriend, friends, and family. Sharing recipes from your site and others actually made my boyfriend say, “I’d go 100% raw if you ‘cooked’ or prepared food for me like this every day!!” I need some new recipes to continue to hold his attention πŸ˜‰ Thanks!!

  44. I am most excited for this book, to learn how to feed my future children πŸ™‚
