  1. I follow you on Stumbleupon (as picatasi) and stumbled the giveaway post!

    Thanks and hope I’m not too late to enter! Happy Valentine’s Day :)

  2. I follow you on Pinterest and I just re-pinned your Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola Bars. They are a staple in my house for my boys’ lunches!

  3. Okay, I admit it, my favorite comfort food(s) are pizza and coffee. I have been doing a vegan eating challenge, and my favorite healthy pizza is loaded with roasted veggies, mushrooms, kalmata olives, daiya cheese, and pine nuts:-)

  4. Ooooooh! I would love to win this book!!! With all the stress and challenges in my life at this point in time I am so in need of ideas for creative, yummy, gluten free, comforting meals. It would be such a gift to be the winner. After so many years of eating gluten free, its awesome to know that someone out there has created stuff that could take my cooking to the next level of down home inspiration and taste.

    When I am in some serious need of some comfort chow, I roast batch of kabocha squash chunks drizzled with olive oil and sea salt. And then I put the squash chunks in a nice large bowl and top it with a generous puddle of thick lemon-dill tahini dressing and eat while watching my favorite tv program. mmmmmm….
    Seriously yum. Seriously comforting. :) :)

  5. I had no idea a book like this existed but I LOVE IT! I have been trying to make vegan/gluten free meals and snacks at home but having some difficulties finding recipes that still taste amazing (picky fiance). My favorite comfort food is absolutely chocolate cake!

  6. My favorite comfort food is tater tot hotdish. I’m from MN and you probably remember that, right? :) I made a vegan version once and it was just ok. I’d love to win this book!

  7. Favorite comfort food? I’d have to say mac and cheese (gluten-free these days)… with Harvard beets. Sounds like a weird combo but it’s so good!

  8. I follow you on Pinterest and repinned your Raspberry Surprise Chocolate Truffles. marthalynn16 [at] gmail [dot] com

  9. Mmmm a nice big bowl of colorful chunky vegetarian chili with a side of crisp sweet potato fries with a dash of sea salt and lots of black pepper on a cold winter day for me!

  10. My favorite comfort food is a brownie ice cream sundae… can that be called comfort food? It’s pretty comforting to me!

  11. I have to say, mac & cheese is THE ultimate comfort food. And the cheesey chicken & broccoli rice casserole my mom makes. MMM carbs:)

  12. my favorite comfort food lately is the schar gluten free pasta with a recipe for alfredo from alicia simpson’s book “vegan comfort food” – YUMMY.

  13. I don’t think I could pick just one comfort food! But mac and cheese was always my favorite as a child. While I ate the blue box back then, but now I have to stick to gluten-free noodles and I have found some awesome dairy free sauces. Some are even soy-free too. Anything that makes my stomach feel good is fine by me!

  14. One of my favourite gluten-free recipes is Angela’s vegan alfredo. The stuff is AMAZING. We use the rice noodles like she did.

  15. Your One Pot Quinoa Mac & Cheez is mt absolute favorite Gluten Free Vegan comfort food! Even my husband who isn’t Vegan and has no gluten issues Loves it so that’s saying a lot!

  16. I love chili! My son was recently diagnosed with lactose intolerence and possible some
    gluten issues. I am sort of at a loss knowing how and what to cook. This book would be
    a wonderful tool to have. Happy weekend.

  17. i really love mac n cheese!!! i’m lactose intolerant so can’t have a lot of it…but the first bite is always the best!

  18. Plain old whole sweet potatoes are my favorite comfort foods and I can (and do!) eat them for breakfast, lunch, and supper. I usually pop them in one of those steamfresh microwave bags for a few minutes to get them soft, then stick them under the broiler for a few minutes to get the skins all black and crispy. YUM!

  19. My favorite comfort food is chocolate chip cookies! I’m still on the hunt for a really great gluten free cookie recipe, and am experimenting more and more with vegan recipes lately, too!

    Awesome giveaway, Averie! =)

  20. One of my favorite comfort foods is Asian-flavored turkey burgers with a pile of rice. The burger recipe is one I took to college with me from home, and one of the very few I know by heart. (Yes, I make them that often.)

    Hope your weekend has been awesome! =)

  21. I already follow you on Pinterest and have pinned your PB&J No Bake cookies…and I’m aiming to make them tomorrow!

  22. My favorite comfort food is homemade gluten-free cookies warm out of the oven and anything with chocolate in it :)

  23. As much as I love your baked goods, I must say you are the queen of savory vegan meals! My favorite comfort food is stuffing, candied yams, and mashed potatoes- not mushed together, but each one spiked on my fork to form the perfect bite!

  24. My favorite is gluten free bread from Pamela’s and of course any gluten free noodle recipe!!

  25. My favorite comfort foods are chilli and sweet potatoes.
    Following you now on pinterest.
    I liked Dacapo lifelong books on facebook.
    Like Love Veggies and Yoga on facebook.

  26. This vegan Mac and Cheez from VegNews is so comforting, and it’s almost perfect with just a few tweaks:

    *Use gluten free brown rice pasta, of course!
    *Take away all that margarine and add just a little olive oil instead.
    *Season sauce to taste, maybe adding more cayenne or mustard if you like, and add a bit of nooch (nutritional yeast) for extra awesomeness!
    *Use more sauce than you think the amount of pasta warrants – or use it for GF vegan potatoes au gratin, or add spinach for a great dip, or thin it out for an awesome soup!
    *Use homemade GF bread crumbs on top – save leftover ends of breads, homemade pizza crusts, focaccia, whatever, in the freezer until you need them for bread crumbs, Pulse them in the food processor with some sea salt and dried herbs and spices like basil, parsley, garlic, and pepper. Pulse in some sliced almonds until you have crumbs, then pulse in some olive oil. Voila, the best bread crumbs ever! Top your mac and cheez, stuffed mushrooms, vegan cassoulet, any kind of casserole, or anything you like!

  27. My favorite comfort foods are all the orange veggies – butternut squash, pumpkins, all the other winter squashes, sweet potatoes, carrots. If it’s full of beta carotene, it makes me happy, head to toe! I love them every which way. My favorite sweet potato methods are oven fries with cayenne and paprika, or baked up whole, mashed, and thrown in a vegan, GF burrito. I make GF flour tortillas, long grain brown rice with cilantro and oregano, refried black beans with plenty of cumin and chiles, and sweet potatoes, which I mash up with some cayenne, lime juice, and nooch. Roll ’em all up and serve with some homemade tomatillo salsa, and/or my favorite hot sauce, Alex’s Ugly Sauce. YUMS!

  28. Favorite comfort food is definitely mac and cheese. I sometimes blend tofu in to cut down on the cheese. You can’t even tell the difference!

  29. I think my favorite comfort food is chocolate. Ha. Does that count? Otherwise, tomato soup with buttered toast comes in a close second.

  30. I am going to have to go with pizza as my fave comfort food. Though chili might be a really close second. I really need to look into getting this book for my sister if I don’t win!

  31. Favorite comfort food lately has been meatloaf with mashed potatoes and a veggie side. Hmmm, that’s more of a comfort meal. Might as well add in a brownie for dessert. ;-)

  32. I LOOOVEEEE quinoa and lentils mixed with steamed broccoli, carrots, sweet potato, and green beans..or even another mix of multiple veggies. Protein powerhouse and full of good veggies :)

  33. My fave comfort food is not so vegan or GF, but it would have to be my dad’s matzah ball soup!

    Second place, fried pickles and sweet potato pie

  34. My favorite comfort food is is a tie between chickpea cutlets or vegan pot pie. Or peanut butter or hummus, haha. :)

    All those recipes sound amazing!

  35. Oh gosh, this book would be perfect for me right now. Not only am I (obviously) mostly vegan, but I’m going gluten-free right now to see how it helps my health issues. I’ve never gone out of my way to avoid gluten in the past, so this GF world is still somewhat new to me.

    My fave comfort food dish is probably a spicy curry. Unorthodox, I know :)

  36. i love veggies..

    my favorite comfort food is “if you ONLY knew i wasnt cookie dough”

    garbanzo beans
    dark cocoa powder
    vanilla extract
    (a bit of OJ or sugar free apple sauce if needed to blend more smoothly)

    process all until desired consistenecy.. tastes like chocolate cookie dough
    add nuts too if you wish or carob pieces.

  37. macaroni and cheese. gets me everytime. i’m actually eager to trying to make the cauliflower “mac and cheese”

  38. My favorite comfort food would have to be “Potato-Leek Soup”…warms me from the inside out every time! This is a fabulous giveaway and would love to add this book to my cookbook collection!

  39. This is a great giveaway! My comfort food is any kind of pasta or roasted veggies (that include squash and sweet potatoes!!)

  40. Mac & cheese…I’ve had it in many shapes and forms, from the scary fluorescent from a box stuff of my youth, vegan/gluten free, the make-your-heart-stop variety that uses five kinds of cheese (that recipe only comes out once a year during the holidays!) and everything in between.

  41. This is one of my favorite gluten free vegan deserts right now : I love no bake deserts and chocolate and I love coconut. So this recipe is perfect and easy. I recently made up a batch to enter into a recipe contest so I have some in the freezer right now. When ever I need that bite of sweet, guilt free, I can grab one and let it thaw for just about 5 minutes. Yum! Thanks Averie for all the gluten free ideas you help us with too.

  42. I’d have to choose cookies as my comfort food . . . I have a weakness for sweets and, with cookies, the possibilities are endless!

  43. This book sounds so good!!
    I have never expressed my thanks to you- I will be forever grateful for baking my tofu in the oven instead of pan-frying it. I read about the method on your blog first :)

  44. Ice cream is my comfort food of choice! But if I want something warm then there is nothing like a cozy bowl of oatmeal, I simply love oats!
