Recommended to Lisa by: Kathryn
4 stars as I’m mostly reviewing for the recipes/food.

So, the advice isn’t great, particularly the promise of weight loss when switching to a vegan diet, if weight loss is needed. I’m really sick of that one. And there are lots of “model like” photos of the author that kind of annoyed me (though similar ones in Alicia Silverstone's book didn’t bother me at all, nor in most books) but then there was a great photo of the author with her two rescued dogs and I warmed up to the photos. And there is

I recently transitioned from being *just* a vegetarian, onto a completely vegan lifestyle. [I watched Vegucated. I was horrified. I can't even LOOK at animal products right now.] Anyway, I picked up the desserts book- and decided to pick this one up as well.

I've tried 3 recipes from this one so far, and am trying a 4th this afternoon. Everything has turned out absolutely amazing. And the way I cook, I make it by the recipe the first time, then adjust and fuss with the flavors afterwards until th

I have only tried a couple of recipes so far, but they have all been amazing! The photos alone are drool worthy or food porn-ish as we like to call it. Especially the dessert section. I can't help but stare at the baked doughnuts - so yummy looking! However, the recipes themselves are easy to follow and most of the ingredients are basic. This is definitely a cookbook worth buying!

Recipes made so far:

So far I've made the Tomato-Basil Bisque (my husband said it was the best tomato soup he's ever had and he's a tomato soup connoisseur), the Fettuccine Alfredo (really good), Penne alla Vodka with the Best Garlic Bread in the World (this was my favorite - the garlic bread lives up to its name), the Mongolian BBQ Seitan using her seitan recipe in the back of the book (the sauce was good although I'd made something very similar on my own before out of ingredients in my fridge, so nothing revolutio ...more

Chloe has a very wide variety of recipes in her book. There are dinner party-type appetizers, hearty burgers and Italian pastas, Asian and Carribbean-inspired fare and oh-so-mouthwatering desserts.

While I waited for this to become available at the library I went ahead & made a few dishes from Chloe's blog. These included:

~Pad Thai Noodles, 4* (so tasty, will be putting in regular rotation)
~Roasted Apple, Butternut Squash & Caramelized Onion Pizza, 3* (I pretty much love every pizza, but

Pro's- Simple recipes, both in regards to ingredients and assembly. Good for people starting to eat a plant based diet and to cook vegan.

Con's- The pictures of the food are nice, but they should have included more pictures of food and less of Chloe, I mean, she isn't hard on the eyes but this is a cookbook.
The design is very simplistic, and the content a little childish at times- this girl is a classically trained chef that worked at Millenium (have you seen their cookbook? pure vegan bliss)! I

I'm a cookbook snob. The photos of her food are beautiful, but there aren't enough of them. Drop the pics of Chloe herself, and highlight the recipes and the luscious food. Many of her recipes call for more oil or nuts than I would ever use, so I didn't try those. I liked some recipes, didn't care for others. I did like that she uses everyday ingredients in some interesting combinations. Great for someone just starting out, but I'm looking for more.

Shelves: non-fiction
Likes: Make ahead tips, easy to follow instructions

Dislikes: Some of the recipes to me weren't recipes, Avocado on Toast to me is not a recipe. Some of the pictures throughout the book were of Chloe instead of food, I would much rather have seen more pictures of the food.

Overall I think this would be a good cookbook for anyone who wants to give vegan cooking a try.

I use the dog biscuit recipe from this cookbook at least once a month (minus the carob coating). I've made the doughnuts many times and the fettuccini Alfredo is really good too!

Whatever your reason for wanting to try eating one or more plant-based meals a day, finding those books out there that are worth owning requires much trial and error.

I have consistently gone back to Chloe’s recipes in this book and they’re almost always a hit with us and our guests.

My best hits tips:
1) any recipes call for soy milk I always substitute Almond Breeze Original almond milk or make my own. (See Tal Ronnen’s “Crossroads” for why as well as his company’s Kite Hill products- closest to

I've spent the last few weeks looking through this and Chloe's Italian cookbook after finally stumbling across her most recent book and absolutely loving it. I like that her recipes are so simple and she doesn't seem to have that mindset that doing things the hard way is necessary or doable for everyone. It's stuff that really can be thrown together on a weeknight in a half hour or so--we've tested it and it works! I have a feeling I'll be purchasing this one as well before too long and saying g ...more

Easy to follow vegan cookbook

I enjoyed reading this cookbook and look forward to making some of the recipes, which seem fairly simple and straightforward. A good variety of global cuisines are represented. For me, there is a bit too much reliance on soy, seitan, and tofu, but some of those recipes seem easily adaptable to omit those elements. On the whole, a solid vegan recipe collection.

Another fantastic cookbook by Chloe (also love her Italian book). Most of the recipes are fairly simple and quick. Below are the recipes I've made so far, and they've all tasted delicious!

Sea salt and vinegar French fries
Double double drive thru burgers
Portobello pesto panini
Best ever baked macaroni and cheese
Drunken noodles in cashew shitake broth

I don't think there's a single recipe in this book that doesn't sound tasty! Can't wait to make even more from this cookbook.

This cookbook has many recipes that adapts the "classics" to be vegan recipes, e.g. meatloaf etc. It's well written and has great photos. Great resource for someone who wants to figure out how to transition away from meat based cooking.

Oh goodness, I just wrote a long review of this cookbook but it appears that Goodreads swallowed it up. I'll try to hit the main points again.

This cookbook is a great choice for someone who is trying out veganism or doing VB6: Eat Vegan Before 6:00 to Lose Weight and Restore Your Health . . . for Good. The recipes are straightforward, the photos are beautiful, and the ingredients are not terribly exotic. Even if you have no vegan tendencies whatsoever, you might want to keep this book on hand fo

Lovely Cookbook! I'm so happy I discovered Chloe! She was the winner of Cupcake Wars when her vegan cupcakes beat out the non-vegan contestants. How cool is that? She also has a restaurant in New York. Definitely someone to check out in the culinary world!

Whether you are vegan or not, these recipes are delicious, easy to make, and contain accessible ingredients (most) already in the kitchen pantry. The pictures of the food are mouthwatering to look at as well. The recipes are well-tested and com

I first picked this book up because I'd seen the author on Cupcake Wars, thought her winning cupcakes looked delicious, and went to her website, which mentioned this cookbook. I am so glad I found it because I LOVE this cookbook! It contains so many delicious recipes, beautiful photos, and is such a great go-to cookbook for quick, easy, and tasty dishes. A number of the recipes in here are very simple and/or basic, which is great for someone who isn't quite a fearless home chef, and it's an exce ...more

I can't believe that I forgot to mark this book read. Perhaps it's because I've been too busy using it. Chloe's Kitchen is an amazing vegan cookbook, and possibly one of the best cookbooks I've ever used. Her food is delicious; carnivore friends enjoy the dishes I've served them from this book and asked for more. My husband begs me to make the dishes regularly. There's more refined fats/ oils in these recipes than in the Happy Herbivore's cookbooks, but Chloe's recipe still seem relatively low f ...more

Zowat elke vegan foodie kent Chloe Coscarelli. Niet alleen deelt ze recepten op haar site, ze maakt ook kookvideo’s en kookboeken EN vorig jaar opende ze ‘by Chloe’, haar eigen restaurant in New York dat er nog een locatie in NY èn eentje in LA bij krijgt. Net kwam ik te weten dat ze nog maar 29 is, één jaar ouder dan mezelf, dan word ik toch even jaloers op wat zo iemand al bereikt heeft.

Ik moet echter toegeven dat ik Chloe vaak iéts te lacherig vind. Lachen is leuk, maar op een bepaald moment

I have been vegan for almost a year and I wish I had this recipe book from the beginning. Im not an experienced cook. Everything in this book was easy to follow and informative. Fun book! I plan to make everything in it.
Marathon County Public Library
As always, Chloe Coscarelli's cookbooks are packed full of recipes for vegans and contain all the information you need to make over a hundred delicious meals. Not only will you find appetizers, soups, main meals, and pasta dishes, but Chloe has put together a tantalizing dessert section in this cookbook. I've got chocolate crème brulee, sea salt toffee bars, and cinnamon-espresso chocolate chip cookies in my near future, and it's all vegan!

A bunch of recipes from this book are on my agenda for this week, so I'll update you on results soon. A first read through, however, suggests this will be an awesome book. Great photos, fairly simple ingredients, and extra points for providing gluten-free substitution instructions for nearly everything. The dessert section looks decadent and there are menu suggestions at the end. The food is a bit fancier than average in some cases. This would be a great book to use for vegan entertaining.

I have been sampling several vegan cookbooks over the past few months, as my husband has switched fully vegan and I am 90% of the way there. Chloe's is absolutely my favorite. Everything I have made from her cookbook is phenomenal - and fairly easy to make! I also carefully track calories, and many of the recipes are surprisingly lower in calories than one would expect, so don't let some of the recipes scare you. Chloe has a wide variety of styles of cooking, including several Asian, Italian, an ...more

I have made several of Chloe's recipes, from both her cookbook and her website, and they have all been delicious and also quite easy to put together. I think a lot of people are afraid of vegan cooking and baking because they think there will be a lot of weird or hard-to-find ingredients required. Not in Chloe's recipes; the ingredients needed are easy to find, easy to use, and make delicious recipes which will knock your socks off. I'm not a vegan, but I love experimenting with different types ...more

I love this cookbook. One thing I really appreciate in a cookbook is photos, and this one has tons of great photos of its recipes. Everything that we've made out of this so far has been fantastic-- the sweet potato gnocchi, the barbecue tofu pizza, the falafel sliders with tahini sauce and avocado hummus (both sauces were delish too!), her 5-ingredient salad, etc. The other thing I love about these recipes is there are tons that can please not only vegans/vegetarians, but those who regularly eat ...more

I thoroughly enjoy this cookbook and have not had a single non-dessert recipe disappoint me. The only recipe which did not float my boat was the mint ice cream. Otherwise some of my favorite recipes are the cheezy broccoli soup in bread bowls, the alfredo sauce and my absolute favorite is the Barley Bliss Casserole! That dish is awesome for leftover lunches, I could probably eat it everyday. I haven't tried every recipe in the book yet but look forward to trying them. I think I enjoyed t
