My Magazine Feature

Pin It!

I don’t really like the self-promotion aspect of blogging. To be honest, I feel embarrassed and self-centered asking you to follow me, pinning my photos to the CCK Pinterest page, tweeting my own links… I worry it makes me come across as vain; in real life that’s not how I am at all! I’d much rather focus the attention on others- on something great they are doing.

But every now and then I get so excited about something that I can’t help but share. Today would be one of those times.

magazine cover   vegnews magazine

If you happen to see the September/October issue of Vegnews Magazine in your local grocery store, Target, or Barnes’n Nobles, it’s worth checking out- not just because they made my year by featuring me, but because the issue is packed with recipes for the likes of pumpkin bread pudding, salted caramel sauce, and cashew Swiss cheese. (If you live in upstate New York, good luck finding a copy. My grandma says she’s buying them all. You know how grandmas are :).)

On that note, a shameless plug: I updated My Press Page.

Tomorrow’s post will be a new healthy dessert recipe. No more shameless plugs for awhile, I promise!

    1. Thanks, Sammi. I can’t say for sure that I didn’t, but I receive a lot of emails and it’s hard to keep up with them all, so it could be on page 2 or 3… or 4 of my inbox. If you send it again today, I will look out for it! Sorry for the trouble. 😕

    Trust me–you don’t come across as self-centered at ALL!!!:) And I JUST got that Vegnews magazine in the mail yesterday (I am subscribed to it), and I saw the article:) I loved reading what your favorite vegetarian-related books are, and I completely agree that John Robbin’s books are fantastic!! I am looking forward to the new recipe!

  10. That is awesome and you TOTALLY deserve it…..don’t feel bad!!!

  11. Remember that we read your posts because we want to know about you and about the amazing things that are happening in your life! It’s not shameless self-promotion if we’re asking for it!! BTW – congrats on the mag feature – you deserve it!

  12. Bonnie says:

    Ooh, that’s great! congrats on being featured in the magazine 🙂 I wish I could read it – the pudding and cheese recipes sound really good too.

  13. Tabby says:

    Katie, we’re all super thankful that you share these things with us- THANK YOU! You remind me so much about myself, sometimes I don’t tell something because of the self-centered feeling. So I do understand you. But obviously narcissism, egoism etc are not personalities that characterize you- you’re the total opposite! And you’re seriously the nicest person on this planet, I don’t think anyone could ever see you as a self-centered person or anything like that- You’re simply the best!

  14. Congratulations on the feature! That’s awesome! I’m heading to Target right now. I will definitely grab a copy! Thank you for sharing this one!
