I gave it this review based on no pictures (minus the cover) and very basic not very creative recipes. I would only make about 4 recipes in this book.

The concept here is pretty intriguing. I am getting more pressure for vegetarian dishes from my family. This book looks like it might be a nice way of linking vegetarians to more traditional meat eaters. The book's purpose is laid out early (Page 1): "'Double Take' is a book in which all the recipes... are for one master dish, but you end up with servings for both meat-eaters and vegetarians. . . ."

From appetizers to soups to entrees, A.J. Rathbun and Jeremy Holt bring both of these lifestyles to the table.
