Before getting to the recipe, I want to say thank you for the enthusiastic response I got for my Help Me Choose My E-book Cover post. That was really cool. Here’s how the voting sussed out (tally from Facebook, emails, and blog comments):
Cover A: 22 votes
Cover B: 12 votes
Cover C: 22 votes
So, it was a tie between A and C. Which meant someone (me) had to be the tie-breaker. I went with what my gut said. Cover A looked a little bit too much like a textbook to me, so I decided to go with C. But some of you had some very constructive criticisms about C and I took those to heart and ended up making some changes to that design (color!). Also, at the eleventh hour (and at my dad’s excellent suggestion) I added a subtitle to make the primer feel more personal and approachable which meant tweaking the design just a tad. You’ll have to wait until the e-book is published to see what I did. Tease! Again, thank you all so much for taking the time to share your thoughts!
So – – today I’m thrilled to be sharing my Ginger Green Matcha “Panna Cotta” with The Sweet Life, (as of 2015 called My Darling Vegan) a beautifully-photographed, mouthwatering blog where you need to spend some solid ogling and drooling time. The recipe is crazy easy and contains no sugar, no oil, and no gluten.
