In case you missed the previous memo, I am no way near a vegan or vegetarian, but I sure do need some of their recipes. I've had a pretty good start with The Meat Lover's Meatless Cookbook: Vegetarian Recipes Carnivores Will Devour, but I have also found some incredible inspiration from Fresh and Fast Vegan: Quick, Delicious, and Creative Recipes to Nourish Aspiring and Devoted Vegans author Amanda Grant. While she is not exclusively vegan, I know that for my opinions she comes to the recipes wi ...more

So, I don't wanna be that guy, but I'm gonna be that guy.

I am not vegan. I don't have anything against veganism, I'm closer to the vegetarian lifestyle, but I do eat meat a couple of times a week so even that is pushing it.

This is not the reason I disliked this cook book. I honestly really love any sort of food as long as it is tasty. This book came out in 2002 and boy does it feel like it. There was very little creativity, very little imagination. It was just a bunch of pretty straight forward

After watching Forks for Knives and listening to a panel of doctors discuss nutrition and heart disease, I decided to get some vegan cookbooks. I think the title of this -- as far as the "Fast" goes, is a bit of misnomer. Many of these take a lot of prep-- for example the roasted red peppers and pasta dish. The peppers take time to roast, steam, and peel. Another issue I found is the book does nor provide sources for specialty items, such a custard powder, harissa,

While the recipes contained within Fresh and Fast were in fact fast, they did not do anything for me. I am good in the kitchen and rarely follow a recipe, but I do enjoy reading cookbooks for inspiration. However, I gained no inspiration from this book as most of the recipes are too simple and obvious, at least to me. There were also far too many recipes that relied on a deep frier or frying in general-something I never do. Frying also rather eliminates the whole "fresh" idea in my opi

I'm not vegan. And really, I don't cook either.

But, I'm transitioning more to a plan of clean eating, so I decided that a "quick, delicious, and creative" little cookbook definitely couldn't hurt me.

For what I'm doing right now, it wasn't astonishingly useful, honestly. I'm not really doing much with bread right now, nor am I eating pasta -- and a lot of the meals use these as a staple. I didn't see anything that was over the top creative, but there were a lot of things that sounded delicious an
