Weekly Giveaway: The Blooming Platter! Bethamphatamine is the winner!
Sometimes a person has to look outside of VegWeb for a recipe. I know, it's scary, but true. Luckily for us, there are about a million amazing vegan cookbooks out there! One of my latest favorites is The Blooming Platter by Betsy DiJulio (http://www.thebloomingplatter.com/?attachment_id=3850). Filled with recipes like Southwestern Tempeh and Corn Pie, Blooming Vegetable Calzones, and Spicy Baja Tacos, it'll have you full until next winter! Besides, it totally needs its own category in Cookbook Lab, and I think you're just the person to start it!
To win a signed (!!!) copy, let me know what your favorite summer desserts are!
Giveaway ends Tuesday, August 9 at midnight, winner will be selected randomly, must live in USA to win.

Italian ices or sorbet!
Fruits mixed together full of their natural juices! Love mangos, pineapple, peaches, raspberries, and melon all chopped and topped with some crushed nuts for crunch.
Homemade Blueberry Popsicles!
I'm a little obsessed with cheezecake right now. I was on a brownie kick at the beginning of the summer but soon gave up after not finding one that impressed me.
Berry cobbler with ice cream.
It must sound boring, but fresh fruit is my favourite dessert in the summer! Bring it up to the next level in a raw crisp!
Love this recipe: http://tastespace.wordpress.com/2011/07/25/raw-mixed-berry-crisp/
Blueberry muffins!! (Yes, I consider muffins a dessert). Or maybe a nice blended coffee drink or bowl of cold rice pudding.
My favorite summer dessert is my old standby: frozen banana blended with a little peanut butter to make my PB banana ice cream!
Homemade vegan ice cream with fresh fruit, any vegan berry torte or homemade vegan popsicles or sorbets
Coconut rice pudding with mangoes, and blackberry cobbler, yum! : )
Rhubarb pie or rhubarb crisp served with vanilla bean ice cream!
Blueberry Crisp or Cobbler.
Homemade ice cream! The latest one is vegan vanilla cake batter ice cream with chocolate buttercream frosting swirled in. It's to die for!
:)>>>I just cant get enough fresh fruit. It is the absolute best dessert by far. Also, very little prep.
Honestly just some really good watermelon does it for me, although watermelon lemonade is a nice second! :)>>>
Anything with fruit. Blueberry-pear pie... mmm....
cookies and cake with ice cream
fresh fruit, grilled pineapple
Just came back from Maine and blueberry picking, made my first blueberry pie with those fresh berries...
so I'll go with blueberry pie (must say they're perfect just the way they are, too.)
