Do you have people on your gift list who seem interested or curious about changing the way they eat? Maybe they have said something like, "I really should eat more veggies, but..." Or you've watched them try diet after diet and only get frustrated. Or they told you they want to start cooking but don't know how to get started. Well, you're in luck then: I've put together this Cookbook Gift Guide with them in mind. These are books that have inspired me because they are full of really delicious recipes that are easy to make. They show very clearly that eating lots of whole, plant-based food can be so satisfying, yet not so difficult or even time-consuming. These are the books I turn to regularly knowing that the chances of pleasing the crowd is high, and the way I feel after eating their food is really good. An ideal holiday gift, the recipient can just open the book and get started right away, trying a recipe that sounds good to them without having to follow a long, complicated process. And the results can be unexpectedly awesome to someone new to plant-based eating.Read More
Not quite Schweddy Balls. Though I'd be happy to go on NPR to discuss them.

A Holiday Tradition
Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Balls have been a holiday tradition in my family for over two decades. Way back when, my mother got the recipe from our neighbor, Kitty, and the whole family has been enjoying them ever since. There have been a few years here and there when I haven't made a single holiday goodie, times when I haven't been able to organize or participate in a cookie-making party, dessert exchange, or make cookie plates for the neighbors - and yet I still manage to make Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Balls. Why are they the only ones that get made? Well, they're pretty easy and fun to make. That, and they're a crowd-pleaser. I don't think I've ever seen anybody eat just one. They're that wonderful combination of peanut butter and chocolate, plus a bit more: pecans or walnuts and dates.Read More
