Can someone make my Wikipedia entry a little more informative? I would appreciate it!

Well the bio sounds like a book flap. So if it could sound less like that. I don't want to say what to say, but if people are good at that sort of thing then that would be cool.

Words such as these are often used without attribution to promote the subject of an article, while neither imparting nor plainly summarizing verifiable information. They are known as "peacock terms" by Wikipedia contributors. Instead of making unprovable proclamations about a subject's importance, use facts and attribution to demonstrate that importance.

* Peacock example:

* Bob Dylan is the defining figure of the 1960s counterculture and the greatest songwriter of all time.

* Just the facts:

* Dylan was included in Time's 100: The Most Important People of the Century, where he was called "master poet, caustic social critic and intrepid, guiding spirit of the counterculture generation".[1] By the mid-1970s, his songs had already been covered by hundreds of other artists.[2]

i know. move all of the extraneous book information to a "books" section. i think that'd solve the whole issue.

Also, there's clearly not enough evidence that Isa is Jewish. I agree with the person who says that shiitake needs to be removed.

I think we should specify Corn Pops. Give a shameless plug to Kelloggs.

Yeah, if you have a photo on flickr with the right license that should be fine.

So I've made some changes, but it could do with more work. Much like famed vegan author Isa Chandra Moskowitz herself.

It's much better! Here are some things I think are relevant:

Favorite Cookbook Author at VegNews Awards every year since 2007.
Me and Terry on Weekend Edition: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/stor ... d=17880728
Bake Sales For Haiti
"Baketivism" in general
I'm a Bust Magazine columnist where I do a column called "Nickle & Dined" that focuses on cooking on a limited budget
I've written for Vegetarian Times, Time Out NY, Natural Health & VegNews.

I don't know if this is relevant but personal stuff like:
Dropped out of the High School Of Music & Art (the Fame school!) where I majored in fine art
Have a GED

If people have questions about stuff that they think would be good to include then ask away!

Let's see. For a few years I just did drugs. Then I was a waitress forever. I actually learned a lot about food and cooking when I was a waitress cause I would sneak back into the kitchen and annoy the hell out of the chefs. I did cook in a few cafes along the way, and did my own brunches and dinners either in the loft i lived in or at other cafes. And I hosted a bazillion potlucks.
