Yours truly, at the Ocean County Cookbook Fair
Ocean County Book Fair
Well, the cookbook officially hits the bookstores on October 1, but family and friends have already spied it for sale at larger bookstores. This Sunday, I did a book signing and offered recipe tastings at the Ocean County Book Fair in Toms River, NJ. I met some wonderful people, all of whom were interested in animal-free cooking. By the end of the day, the samples were all snarfed up and the cookbooks were all sold out. The saleswoman at the book stand told me that my cookbook and one other one were the day's most popular sellers. Nice to hear!
Washing an amazingly well-behaved pooch.
Dog Wash for PAWS
Last weekend, I participated in a Dog Wash at the South Street Whole Foods to benefit Philly PAWS. I washed some amazingly well-behaved pooches, as did my amigos. We raised a ton of cash; Philly folks are so generous. We also introduced pedestrians to some wonderful foster animals who need loving, forever homes.
Jelly the Rottweiler is a former stray. Such a sweetheart!

He doesn't exactly like it, but he knows he'll get a treat once it's over.
