Talk and baking demo, elementary-style! Catering! **Autographed VCC Giveaway!**

I have quite a few things crammed into this post! And they’re all very exciting!

#1. A couple weeks ago, I went to my friend’s school to talk to his classes about veganism, baking, my book, and art. They seemed very interested, and thought I was HILARIOUS after accidentally uttering the words “shit” and “titties” during my speech. Hah.
We ended the day by baking Giant Bakery Style Double Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Teaching kids about baking and getting in the kitchen with them is something I’d be very interested in doing again in the future! It was so much fun, and they had a blast!

#2. If you’re in the Milwaukee area and would like to order cookies from me for an event, I now am advertising catering services. Click the link at the top of the page for more information! Cookies and prices are currently on a case-by-case basis, but I will get more concrete information up as soon as I can! I’d love to bake for your holiday parties coming up next month, or anything at all, so send me an email at!

#3. Oh hey, I have a contest for a signed copy of The Vegan Cookie Connoisseur, starting NOW!

Write me a haiku
All about vegan cookies,
My lovely readers

If your poem wins
I will bestow upon you
Vegan cookie book

[I’m sure you can write a more eloquent haiku about vegan baked goods that sounds less like caveman speak.]

I am doing a giveaway of a signed copy of The Vegan Cookie Connoisseur, right here, right now! To enter, write a vegan haiku about cookies and post it as a comment on this blog entry!
The contest closes this Thursday at 2pm CST! I’ll select finalists and a panel of judges comprised of awesome vegans will vote on the winner.
I will make a post with the winner and the winning haiku on Friday or Saturday! If it’s you, please send your mailing address ASAP to and I will ship your book on Monday.
**US entries, only please.**

  1. I feel as if I should title any haiku I attempt as “If I Only Had a Brain,” still here goes. Only for you Kelly.

    Vegan cookie love
    Uncreative types like me
    Stand no chance at all

    Like Don Quixote
    Yet we continue to tilt
    For love of awesome

    Sweet treats by Kelly
    Who believes our brain cells
    Function cookieless

    How can we begin
    With no Double Chocolate
    Molasses Ginger

    Glazed Apple Cider
    Peanut Butter Butterscotch
    Nor Pumpkin Clouds

    Our brains left forlorn
    By cruel fate no awesome sugar
    Rust to sustain

  2. And if I’d HAD a cookie I’d be awake enough to know Haiku only has three lines. I had to look it up in Wikipedia! I should go back to bed. May I try again? Please?

    Vegan Cookies An
    Impossible Treat For
    My Deprived Taste Buds

  3. I’m going to make a couple tries … but then i have to get back to work. le sigh.

    Butter, eggs, dairy?
    Cookies never need such things!
    Connoisseurs know that.

    Peak in my oven
    to find tempting treats going
    straight in my belly

    Choose this bad haiku
    and, in turn, I’ll mail to you
    fresh vegan cookies!

    (I’m an engineer … poetry isn’t my strong suit. But still, PICK ME!!! 🙂 I had the decency to bribe you)

  4. I’m not much of a poet, but here’ a haiku about my favorite kind of cookie:

    Oh, Snickerdoodle
    Your cinnamon and sugar
    Are so delicious

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  5. Apropos of nothing I made your Pumpkin Cloud Cookies GF into tiny little muffins and they were yummy!

    Animal Friendly
    Cruelty Free Good Enough
    To Coo Like a Dove

    I know I already did some while I was still asleep. You don’t have to count it, I just like it.
