HOLIDAY RECIPES REMINDER .. and more

POST #709
Several weeks ago, I published a list of places where you can find raw vegan Thanksgiving recipes.  Of course, I listed my own recipes first, I mean, this is my blog.  I also listed places where holiday recipes are listed free for the taking.

I’ve just learned of a new collection: Real Life Raw Holiday Foods, by Tina Jo Stevens    (this is a book for sale)  Check it out if it pleases you to do so.

Since, of course, you are after getting the perfect recipes for  your traditional holiday, as I become aware of other collections, I will publish them.

Oh, and, BTW, ONLINE CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS, which seems to be related to SUITE 101, continues to list the article in which all of my holiday recipes were published wholesale, without my permission, and with no reference to the source of the recipes.  A few of these recipes do now lead you back to my recipe page, but not all of them.  I have asked this site several times to remove this article.  They continue to refuse or even acknowledge my legitimate request.   Bloggers and other on-line publishers, please do stay aware of where your intellectual property is going.  Many will appropriate your work and pass it off as theirs because they realize that most of us bloggers cannot afford to sue them in court.  I cannot do that, but I can continue to announce it to all within hearing distance when I find someone who has stolen my work.
