  1. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and checking out “Meet Celeste”. It means a lot to me when someone takes the time to read my story and find out who I am. I appreciate it! I’ve been having fun checking out your blog the past couple of days. You’ve got a wealth of wonderful recipes! I’ve decided to start following you. Celeste:)

    • Thanks Celeste. So pleased that you like my blog. Years ago I wrote “Gourmet Vegan” published by Gollanz but it is long out of date. I also wrote Vegan Recipes from Many Lands but sadly Olivier Gollanz died and it never got published. I’m still asked if I have any copies of my book so my son set me up with my blog three years ago and I have sent out over 450 recipes to date. Heather

      • That’s awesome that you wrote a book! I’ve got dreams and goals about writing a book one day, hopefully I can make it happen. It’s been so nice to e-connect with you Heather. Celeste:)
