This is an amazing list and your name is probably on it!

It's been a successful two years in my book.  I've been through love, laughter, heartache, heart break, losing some babies, experiencing a 'haunting', being on the radio, starting as a partner in an all vegan bakery and all the while making food for some very special people.

I'm now beginning work on the Rainbows of Vegan Love cookbook, and it's very slowly beginning to take some sort of shape.  I'm not sure how to get it published, etc.. but I'll be learning that as I go on.  If anyone has any ideas or can help me in this, I'd love to hear them!

I'll keep you always in the loop.  But for now, I need to thank some very awesome people that helped to keep me going these past two years.
