Free Vegan RV Cookbook

VeganRoadTripI did it. After several months of hounding my hubby to take pictures of all the food I was whipping up in the kitchen, and bothering him with countless edits and revisions (lucky me since he is my graphic design and layout guy), I finally created my first eBook. If you haven’t guessed yet, it’s a cookbook–a vegan cookbook tailored for those who make their culinary creations in small spaces–specifically RVs.

Vegan Road Trip: Simple Vegan Recipes for your RV Kitchen was actually a nice challenge for me. You see, I needed to prove to myself that I could actually finish a book. I’ve been working several years on my RV travel memoir Little Snowbirds: A Love Story on Wheels. While it is almost done–the book release is set for summer 2013–in the back of my mind I wondered if I could really follow through with the project.

Thankfully, Lisa Shea, the owner of www.BellaOnline.com where I am the RV editor encouraged each of the editors to publish an eBook. Since I was still working out so many kinks on my memoir–in other words, procrastinating on it because I’m actually a bit intimidated about publishing it–I took her up on the challenge, but decided to focus on another favorite subject of mine–vegan cuisine.

And, since I’m the RV editor, I focused on simple vegan recipes you could easily cook in your RV kitchen. Stuff like dolled up Bisquick pancakes…

While putting this book together, I gained a whole new respect for cookbook authors. There is a lot of blood, sweat, flour and tears that flows into a collection of recipes. And so much that you don’t think about. The measurements, the cooking, the cleaning, the burnt cake so you had to start all over again, the ditched recipes, the getting everything just right so you could take a picture. Now, we didn’t go the uber-professional route where you make the food and then put Elmer’s glue in place of soy milk and all that kind of crazy stuff to make the photos turn out better. We took the pictures with the intentions of eating the creations afterwards. And boy, were they tasty.

So to all you cookbook authors out there, I salute you and your hard work. Now that I’ve done my first one, I’ll admit, I kind of want to do another one. This time, I’m going to focus on vegan, soy-free and gluten-free recipes. I know, it’s a bit of a challenge but it’s one that I’m up for. Let the adventures begin!

Oh, and by the way, if you clickie poo right here, you can download the PDF and have it for yourself! Hopefully you’ll find a few new favorite recipes.
