Tuesdays don’t get much love. They don’t mark the beginning or end of the week. They rarely host holidays or days off. Aside from Taco Tuesdays, who looks forward to the day after Monday with any sort of enthusiasm?
Book authors, that’s who! For reasons still unknown, Tuesdays are when new releases hit shelves, both physical and digital, for all the world to see. Theories abound but still no consensus for the origin of this weekly book birthday. I’m not about to enlighten you with a brilliant new explanation, but I do want to light a few candles for this particular upcoming Tuesday… Especially if they’re on top of a Lemon-Lime Sunshine Bundt Cake.
Sweet Vegan Treats, my sixth cookbook baby, will officially be born tomorrow! Pre-orders have already started shipping, but now you’ll be able to find copies in brick-and-mortar stores, and maybe even your local libraries, if you ask nicely enough. Every book has been a labor of love, but this particular collection of recipes has been a long time coming. To anyone craving a bit of sweetness in their lives, for breakfast or dessert, quick or complex, this one goes out to you.
Put on your party hats and and cut yourself a thick slice, because I’m getting ready to take these treats to the streets! Join me in real life for the grand release party at my favorite cafe, Timeless Coffee in Oakland, CA, Friday October 18th from 5 – 7pm. Get a taste of the treats within while raising a glass (of iced oat milk latte) to even great delights soon to fill your own kitchen.
The fun doesn’t end after those morsels are devoured, though. For the next few months, you can catch me all around San Francisco, Oakland, and Berkeley sharing demos for various tricks and tips to make your time in the kitchen even sweeter. Not in the bay area? Never fear! I love any excuse to travel and would love to bring some pastry appreciation to you, too. Let’s bake something great together! Where should I go next?

So exciting and congrats! Would love to see you at SacTown VegFest in February!
Thank you so much! Yes, SacTown VegFest would be perfect- Not too far from home, and still plenty of time to plan. Who should I get in touch with?
This new book is SO beautiful, Hannah! I blogged about the cookies I made from it for my yoga retreat: https://veganeatsandtreats.blogspot.com/2019/10/yummy-yoga-retreat-eats.html
OMG, you’re amazing! The cookies look perfect and I’m so excited to see them out in the wild… Quite literally! This totally makes my day. <3
[…] a hearty cookie experience is just what the doctor ordered! This year I made two cookies from Hannah Kaminsky’s newly released “Sweet Vegan Treats“ : Apricot Biscotti – these gluten-free cookies really surprised me with their BIG burst of […]
How exciting! Congratulations Hannah. So darn proud of you!
Aw, thank you so much! I know you’ve been it for the long haul, from the beginning of my baking journey, so that really means a lot to me!
Congratulations with your new cookbook – I have just ordered it! I live for baking (especially cookies and scones!) so your cookbook will be a treasure for me.
I wanted to ask you about the pictures you posted on the Vegan Baking Group Pool: that Golden State Granola (1 and 2?) looks so delicious and hopefully you don’t find it impolite asking you about the recipe you used : ) It looks so incredible clumpy and if you used dates and maybe turmeric (‘golden’?) it must be just the way I like my granola.
I can not wait for your cookbook to arrive – thank you for all your work!
Ah ha, you caught that little sneak peek! I’m thrilled that you’re so excited about the granola, because that recipe will be coming to the blog next week! Hope you can wait until then. :)
I hope you’re equally delighted with the cookbook! Thank you so much for all your support. It truly means the world to me. Please let me know what you think when it arrives!
Secretly I was hoping you would say that – about the granola recipe coming on the blog next week : ) That recipe and your cookbook on the way to my home: I feel happy!
I will let you know about my thoughts! I wish I could come to your grand release party but I live in Europe and traveling to the US sadly is not possible with my budget : (
I wish you lots of fun at the party!
