I just completed my very first book tour for my very first book, Chloe’s Kitchen! Here’s my recap…
Bright, solid colors work best on camera, hence the rainbow wardrobe rack!
Come on, we all know the whole point of traveling is to eat at new vegan restaurants! I had so much fun hitting up the best vegan eats in each city, including Millennium in SF and Candle Café in NYC!
Meeting my facebook friends, twitter followers, and blog readers for the first time in person is the most thrilling experience. Every single person who came out to my book signings filled me with joy, appreciation, and inspiration!
Yes, it’s true- I took my mom to every single book signing and media event. My mom is often mistaken for my publicist or manager, but I always give it away when I call “Mommy!” across the room. Oops!
There’s always a celebrity or two waiting in the green room of the morning shows! This time I spotted Wilmer Valderrama and Olympic skating champ Kristi Yamaguchi- score!
Life just isn’t the same without daily kisses from Winnie & Buster!
There was one week where a literally averaged 2 hours of sleep a night. I felt like a zombie!

Whether you’re looking to spend $6 or $60, there’s something on this list for you. Enjoy and don’t forget to pick out a couple of items for yourself!
I scream for vegan ice cream! Rev up your ice cream maker engines because the results are in from my Facebook Ice Cream Contest. I asked you to suggest your dream ice cream flavor so that I could turn it into a vegan recipe. All of your flavors sounded so ooey gooey delicious that it was nearly impossible to narrow down the list. After a weekend of making tons of batches of ice cream and taste testing spoonful after spoonful (I know, it's a hard life!), I chose my 2 favorites. I hope you enjoy these creamy creations as much as I do! And the winner is...
