Usually I stick to Recipe Box because I'm often burned by cook books requiring a substantial amount of time and plethora of unusual ingredients. However, I got an early copy of this (free copy won through Goodreads) and gave it a try.

I've made about 7 recipes so far with no failures, which suggests it is somewhat novice-proof. Most of the recipes use common ingredients you are bound to already have or that can easily be used for another meal that week. Steps were clear and most recipes appear to
What a great cookbook. So many excellent ideas, it was actually a pleasure to discover this is a reissue of the author's first cookbook which was so popular it got reprinted in this new form. (which i appreciate mightily, thank you!) This is more than just another vegetarian cookbook, don't let the subtitle fool you or turn you away, it's about really good food that just happens to focus on veggies but you really have to try it because it's amazing. Well worth the read.

Rating is tentative until I try the recipes.

But they look pretty good! I think I made a pretty good clean-out-your-pantry soup from here, although it's hard to remember because I've been cooking from SO MANY cookbooks recently, and once I use a recipe and then save it, I usually don't say anymore what cookbook it came from. Which is probably stupid of me, so maybe I'll change that.

Anyway, worth a check-out, if you mostly cook vegetarian and are interested in new recipes!

I’m not a vegetarian by any means, but I sure do love trying new ways of cooking, new recipes, and introducing new foods to my palate. As with any cookbook I get my hands on to review, I always try out several recipes before finalizing my view of the book. Read the full review on my website
B What do I do when I feel like crap? Read a cookbook. This one, I must admit, I was a little disappointed with. I have some of Lemlin's other cookbooks and am rather obsessed with some recipes (Pumpkin Pancakes, Moroccon Baked Couscous, Cream Red Pepper Spinach Lasagna are a few I repeat often) but this one...I was not like, I MUST MAKE THIS IMMEDIATELY. Still, some good stuff, but not my fave of her cookbooks
it's a pretty cookbook, lots of recipes, some pictures, but a bit too exotic for my family...i don't think they'd be thrilled to hear that i had tried to make "kasha" (buckwheat groats...?), or "skillet bulgur", or "noodle timbales". i would only attempt simple things like a "yogurt lime sauce for fresh fruit" or a "classic vinagrette" or the yummy looking "hot fudge pudding cake".

This book has somerecipes that you will make over and over again. Thats saying a lot in the area of way too many cookbooks out there. Vegetarian.
