It’s VeganMofo, The Vegan Month Of Food!

by IsaChandra

It’s that time of year again! Time to wear down your stove and your keyboard. Time to mow people down with your shopping cart. Time to answer the age old question: do lemon and chocolate taste good together? It’s time for VeganMoFo, the Vegan Month Of Food.

The idea is to write as much as you can for the month of October about vegan food. The blog entries can be about anything food related – your love of tongs, your top secret tofu pressing techniques, the first time your mom cooked vegan for you, vegan options in Timbuktu – you get the idea. There is no strict guideline for how much you have to write, but we shoot for about 20 times a month, or every weekday.

This year the master list of participants is being hosted by Kittee, Cake Maker To The Stars. So get on over there for more details and to sign up!  You don’t have to be vegan to join, just so long as you are writing about vegan food for the month. Happy MoFoing!

    Yippee! What awesome timing.

    My blog? Needs fresh content.

    My love of cooking vegan? Greater than ever. (Mind you I’m vegetarian not vegan but I love me some vegan recipes.)

    Plus, here in DC many of us are blogging about beer in October. Thank goodness most beer is vegan! :)

    duh I forgot to add a link to my blog…perhaps I need to get my head out of the clouds! Wheeee VeganMoFo!!

    Oh, looks like it’s finally time for me to start my food blog! I’ve been hemming and hawing, but now, I think I have enough to write some decent posts for an entire month (and beyond). Go VeganMoFo!

    I’m so excited! I’ve been checking this blog daily since the beginning of September waiting for the announcement. I actually had a dream that I missed it.

    I missed it last year and refuse to miss it this year. (Somewhat) like greyfavorite, I’ll admit I needed a little kick in the pants to get posting again!

    I’m both excited and nervous about participating in VeganMoFo! I’m a new blogger writing about, well, vegan-y goodness in Montreal. I’m thinking of concentrating on the potato… but we’ll see. Wish me luck!

    A perfect month to launch the new website for The Bake Easy – a secret vegan bakery in Bloomington, IN and soon to be found in NYC. Spread the love! October = Rocktober.

    YAY! I’m featuring a different ingredient every day this month, if anyone needs inspiration :)

    I just got through the As and Bs on the blog list and I seriously can’t wait to see what the rest of the month brings. I am really excited to see so many participants this year!

    I love your wit and style. My vegan friend sent me your link, and as she anticipated, I’m feeling tempted… I look forward to following your Vegan Mofo III, and reading more of your posts.

    I just read the Vegan Mo Fo on LA Times! It’s awesome. Unbeknownst to me I’ve been having a vegan cooking extravaganza since friends have been visiting and its been fun to make up new stuff! I’m joining in on the blog scene next year — this is awesome PPK… thanks.

    I am also a vegetarian and my body has never been in a very good shape. Being a vegan can really make you much heathier.-.~
