Vegan Dad Cookbook Contest Winners!

Winners? Yes, winners! I was so amazed by the 521 entries that I felt obliged to give away another cookbook. You were all put at the mercy of Random.org which spit out numbers 317 and 117. Congratulations to Jennie and Denise who correctly identified the mystery utensil as a cherry (or olive) pitter! I have sent you emails asking for your address. For those who didn't win, print copies are available through Amazon for $16, and $10 e-books are available for download here.

I really had a blast with this contest. It was rather like everyone who reads the blog leaving a comment on a post. Thanks for all the encouraging words many of you added to your entries. I will definitely do this again--in fact, I already have my next mystery utensil picked out!

The contest was an excellent idea that just sparked excitement! It's great to know that you have such a large following. Keep up the great blog while still enjoying your baby!

Oh, by the way, a friend has asked me to make a grasshopper pie (minty and chocolaty) for her garden party; have you made this before?

I have never made such a pie, but this just showed up on Google Reader: http://bittersweetblog.wordpress.com/2009/07/06/hop-on-over/

521 comments...whoo hoo! Can't wait to (try to!) figure out your next utensil. This reminds of "This Old House" where the guys always stand around trying to figure out what the mystery tool is used for...but I like your version better! ;)

I didn't win...but then again, I didn't enter lol...I'm in Aus and although I knew the answer, I had no chance to win. Any chance of your next comp being open to those who live outside of the US or Canada?

Vegan Dad, why not offer E-books next time so your readers outside of North America can enter. I read you regularly and live in Switzerland! Maybe you could have a contest for ONLY those who live outside of Canada and the USA, you might be surprised how many entries you receive!
