    i am not interested in any more cookbooks…lol. Ok kidding, yes, i am! I have tons already i never use but it’s always fun to read

    GREAT hummus!

    awesome frosting!! i want THAT!

    So so so so so so proud of you!! *hugs and hugs and more hugs* Can’t believe you kept this asecret fromme *waggles finger*

    And completely down with the hummus instead of salad. The world needs more raw hummus (I’m confident saying that, even though I’ve never tried it… πŸ˜› )

    I like the idea of a cookbook with raw and cooked options.

    The hummus platter looks amazing! I’d love to try the sundried tomato and pesto hummus πŸ™‚

    Wowee you have been a busy little bee. Those hummus would rock the faces off of all my middle eastern friends back home, and I reckon they wouldn’t want to touch the originals again. Those cupcakes look almost cooked too. Licking my screen!

    mmm hummus! and the cupcakes are such cuties!

    yes I’d love a book with both options although if the cooked options are soy-heavy and gluten-filled it’s not as usable for me.

  6. Noelle

    You had me at hummus!! How exciting. Hope everything goes well!

  7. Hillary Dyan Davis

    Ooooh, hummus….be still my heart! I think there is definitely a market for your cook book idea

    I would definitely be interested in a book with raw and cooked options. I always want to be able to make more raw foods, but don’t really have the equipment for it, and there aren’t many recipes in my cookbooks. And I am way more likely to get a recipe from a cookbook than online lately. That’s a great final project – I love having projects that really push us to do what we dream of!
    All of these hummuses (?) look great! I’d love to try any one of them.

  9. Fanny

    If it will have recipes similar to what I’ve seen on this blog.. Eh… YES!

  10. Diane

    Very excited for you Amber! The hummus looks awesome and I think you did great with the piping on the cupcakes. I look forward to hearing more about the cookbook. Good luck @ graduation (although it sure doesn’t look like you need any)!

  11. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    I think that’s a great idea for a book! Every single one of those hummus offerings looks supremely delicious, I would love to learn how to make all of them.

  12. Joanne

    Your cookbook sounds great! Please include a raw cracker that is yummy. I’ve experimented with many but haven’t found “the one” yet.

  13. Roselie

    Good luck for tomorrow! And your idea about the book sounds fantastic, I ‘d definitely be interested!

  14. Amanda @ Hungry Vegan Traveler

    I would DEFINITELY be interested in a vegan, gluten-free cookbook with raw AND cooked options. That’s pretty much the perfect book for me!

    Also, you’re totally going to make all of those hummuses (hummi?) for me when I come back to visit, right?

  15. veggie wedgie

    Good luck, good luck! The cupcakes look fantastic!

  16. Deanna

    Seriously – you have to even ask that question?!? Of course I would!

    And, um, if you need recipe testers – you know I’m your girl, right? Right!?! πŸ™‚

  17. indialeigh

    Oh my, raw cupcakes…ooh the RAW joys just keep on coming… those bowls of hummus look delish…wish could invent taste-o-vision but I guess that is what a cookbook is! YES, YES, the raw AND the cooked vegan recipe book would be a coveted treasure! Good luck for your finals.

  18. Pure2raw twins

    Cupcakes look great!! We are working on a few different cookbooks, mix of raw and cooked too. We were hoping to have it done now, but hopefully this coming year! Good luck!! And we love hummus!!

  19. OliePants

    That’s so exciting about the cookbook proposal! I think it’s a fabulous idea and especially since you stole my heart with the hummus variety! I didn’t see a flavor I wouldn’t like.

  20. Lori

    This is the post to end all posts! Oh my gosh- delicious! I L O V E hummus!

  21. andreadevon

    i would love to see a raw/cooked vegan book… that’s how i roll too! ditto for offering recipe testing services πŸ™‚ aloha from maui!

  22. Hillary Dyan Davis

    OK….random question time. I was browsing through dehydrators, and I came across the TSM Harvest Food model. 10 trays, thermostat 95-155F….good reviews on Amazon….only $130. So, I’m wondering, what’s the catch? It’s plastic, like the Excalibur….not sure if it has a fan or not….

    Just wondering if you’ve heard anything about it. I have Amazon gift certificates to spend, and everything I’ve read about this TSM model seems to be on par or better than the Ex with a much better price tag.

  23. Kylie @ A Hungry Spoon

    Hummus overload in the best possible way! I love all of the options you created. And I definitely love the looks of those strawberry cupcakes with coconut frosting.

    I would be super interested in a cookbook with both raw and cooked options–I love using raw recipes for occasional fun, but it’d be great to have a cookbook that incorporated both.

  24. simplynutritiouskate

    those cupcakes are adorable and MMM I love hummus

  25. Spumoni

    Based on what I saw you make in Level I, I would be interested in a cookbook from you. I would want to have an idea of the ratio of cooked vs. raw before purchase though. πŸ™‚

  26. Michelle

    Those cupcakes look awesome…and bring on that cookbook! :o)

  27. Josh

    Hummus is yummus!! You will have to give me some alternative recipes when I see you next. My hummus is always a hit, but yours looks way better.

  28. Sondi

    A cookbook with gluten-free, vegan, raw and cooked recipes would be awesome!

  29. Michelle (Housewife in the Raw)

    I’d buy any cookbook you wrote!

  30. simplynutritiouskate

    cute cupcakes! and YES i have been looking for a good cookbook like that for months

  31. Mary Crouch Young

    HI Amber!
    Bobby and I would most certainly purchase your cookbook and I would recommend it to my friends, too. I love the idea of combining vegan and raw foods–it seems like a natural marriage of dietary choices. I would purchase the cookbook to keep at home for when I have vegan guests or guests with gluten allergies. I’m vegetarian but it’s sometimes hard to wrap my mind around gluten-free cooking and would appreciate the guidance.

    But what I would really appreciate is if the recipes in your cookbook were accessible to the general public, with ingredients that were easy to come by and methods (especially for the raw recipes) that were relatively simple to do in one’s own kitchen without too many special pieces of equipment (like a dehydrator, for instance.) So for me I think that the catch to your great concept would be “The Accessible Raw and Vegan Cookbook.” That would be beyond awesome.

  32. Marsha

    I definitely would be interested in your cookbook, esp. if it’s also available as an ecookbook.

    Here’s to hummus variety! πŸ™‚

  33. Nikki M.

    Hi there! I just found your blog and really like it! I would loooove a cookbook with lots of hummus recipes πŸ™‚ Thanks for all of the great ideas!

  34. Jenny

    Congratulations on your success! I am lovin’ the different hummus…what is hummus plural? Hummuses? Hummi? πŸ™‚ I’ll buy your cookbook for sure!

  35. Dana Pinder

    Amber, I LOVE hummus! I will have to buy the book for that section alone! Congrats!

  36. Gabriella Duncan

    dkfjskdjfhds! :O This is lovely! But I’m a bit perturbed.

    I had this amazing idea a few weeks ago to write a book but wanted to do something new and original. Even though raw food is technically a new trend, there’s already so many talented minds out there coming out with cookbooks on raw cuisine. So I had an epiphany and got all excited and said, “I’m gonna come out with a raw/cooked book for people transitioning to 100% raw, vegans wanting to add more raw foods to their diet, and those who are generally raw but want some warming/comforting foods that are still healthy when the craving comes or during the winter! It’ll be Epic!”

    EEP, and then I see this. Haha. It’s amazing how people can be inspired with the same ideas who never actually come into contact with each other. πŸ˜€ But maybe not all hope is gone. You said your book is going to have raw and cooked versions of the same recipes (amazing idea btw)? Maybe I can still do mine as it would be a little bit different. Raw foods with some basic must-have cooked foods. And lots of salad as I’m entranced by kale and all manner of leafy greens, believe it or not. ;] Mine was also going to be soy free but not gluten free as I definitely wanted to add my foccacia and naan bread recipes in which I haven’t found a gluten replacement for my spelt and whole wheat flour. D: Ideas?

    Anyways, the best of luck to you! You must be very excited starting this venture. I will absolutely, most-definitely buy your book. I’ve been perusing your blog for some time and love your recipes/posts. You’ve actually inspired me to start my own blog. Which will hopefully happen sometime in the near future…

    i’m a hummus fanatic as well, but I’m more of a traditionalist and would be down with a hummus topped with stewed fava beans. πŸ™‚
