I was so sad to see that Vegan Dad is quitting the blog. Although it won't be updated anymore, I hope it remains live: http://vegandad.blogspot.com/2013/01/its-end-of-blog-as-we-know-it.html

That is sad (although I totally understand his reasons for doing so). I will have to make sure I have saved my favourite recipes.

That stinks! I haven't gone there much this year because of the infrequency of the posts, but I have loved so many recipes of his in the past. It seems as if he will leave it live, he says in the last paragraph that he hopes it will be a resource for people in the future.

shiitake! His hot wingz recipe was the first time I ever successfully made seitan.

This makes me sad, but I understand and think he's doing what he needs to do. I'm glad he will be leaving the blog live so we can still access his recipes. I haven't made nearly as many as I should have, but I always directed people to his sight when they asked about making fake meaty stuff.

Sad but totally understandable! His perfect tempeh burgers were already on the menu for tonight. We'll raise a burger in gratefulness!

Awww, I love Vegan Dad. I'm glad he's leaving it up though.

That's very sad! But all good things come to an end and I totally understand why he isn't blogging anymore. Glad to hear he'll be keeping the site up!

I'm sad too. And thinking that perhaps I should spend a couple of hours copying the recipes *just in case*

Sadtown! But I get it. So awesome to have these recipes. And I really enjoyed his bread baking posts...he did a few videos that were really helpful in learning some techniques.

And his breakfast sausage link recipe! Those are so good.

Aww it's always sad to see things go, but he says he'll keep the archives available, so I'm glad for that. There are still so many things I haven't tried!

I am sad to hear about this! I have have enjoyed his food photography, and relatable home/school stories. His pecan rolls are the best thing I have ever made!

I saw this on my Reader today. So sad, it's one of my favourite blogs. Thanks for the good times, Vegan Dad.
