This is by far the best vegetarian cookbook I own. After having it for over 10 years, I still keep going back to it. Today I baked the cheese and broccoli quiche, a family favorite even if the rest of my family are firm carnivores. I like the ease of the recipes and the photographs. Yeah, I bought it because I was a Beatles fan and Linda McCartney was Paul's first wife. I've kept it because it's wonderful on its own merits. I heartily recommend it.

This is one of the first cookbooks I ever owned, so I've got lots of affection for it. The summer lasagna recipe is the first lasagna I ever made, and it's still good. I made my first bechamel sauce using this book, too. The cheese and broccoli quiche and twice-baked potatoes were standards for me in my early twenties, and though I don't think this is a great cookbook (esp if you're not a vegetarian), it gave me courage to experiment.
I found a lot of the recipes to be neither simple nor inspiring, but then again, I read it during a time of having food aversions, so take that with a grain of salt. I did make the Eggplant Herb Casserole, which was not simple at all, but was pretty tasty. Still, not tasty enough to make again (in my opinion), and McCartney has a tendency to use a lot of ingredients I wouldn't.

For 15 years, I've used this book to cook food for my family and it is a treasured possession - we raised our children on these recipes, which are generally straight-forward to cook, well-balanced, tasty and look good on the plate.

I don't really think about it as a book, but as a person. If I'm looking for it, I will usually ask, "Where's Linda?". She's a part of the family!
Why’d I read this one? I dunno, probably because Joe watched a movie about Paul & Linda McCartney a few weeks ago and kept going on and on about it. So when I saw it sitting on the shelf next to VWAV, I grabbed it out of curiosity. Yep. Good recipes. What did you expect?

This is my most used cookbook. The recipes are yummy, and there are photos for all the food. It's also laid out so you can create entire meals, including meals for holidays like Thanksgiving.
This is one of my favorite vegetarian cookbooks. I love her lemon cake recipe!
Linda was a good soul. She is missed.

I use this cookbook at least once a week, often more.

Most of the recipes are okay but not brilliant.
