Yes, I read this yet have not made any recipes out of it but I have a ton marked. Each introduction was unique and they made smile and laugh. I loved the take on relationships and different diets and the whole "Would you break up with me if I ate chicken" part was comical. It's all about the compromise. Each author was honest and to the point all the way down to telling you not to be a dick and try to change someone and that moment you know it's time to break up, so you do, only to have the guy ...more

Awful book - appalling.

The premise of the book is that this is a cookbook for vegans cohabiting with non-vegans and is also some kind of relationship 'self-help' for vegans.

All I can say, is this book is absolute garbage - the authors are arrogant, up themselves, come across as pretty dislikable on every page. They clearly have a positive body image (OR THEY THINK THEY ARE SMOKING HOT) as they are in their underwear on pretty much every page.

There are some appaling attitudes in this book - the

I found this book a little disappointing, it's part cookbook part advice column. Most of the recipes are quite heavy and although the vegan not something that I see myself making.

When I took this book out of the library, I wasn't expecting it to be a dating guide with a few recipe thrown in. I guess I didn't read past 'Cookbook'. Oh well.
Although I understand some people might like the long rants on how to cope with non-vegans, I didn't really understand why the authors always got so frustrated about their partner eating meat or dairy. As a vegan myself, I have sometimes tried to convert one or two family members, but after a while, everyone just wants to be left alone.

More self-righteous manifesto, less delicious vegan recipes (and an over-reliance on seitan and soy). Based on how many pictures there were of the authors in their underwear, I don't know what I was expecting.

Amazing Delicious Recipes

Recipes were not too complicated did not require a lot of ingredients and were delicious. Love the dialog that came with each chapter

Picked this up expecting a whole tone of recipes, not some cheesy love anecdotes and advice!

I'm picky about the way cookbooks are organized, and the logic/illogic of sequencing. This one does a nice job of grouping recipes according to the connecting thread of dating/love/lust and the stages of a relationship. (The breakup chapter is dessert, so you can stuff sweets into the mouth part of your face while you grieve.) It loses a little of this potency (heh) at the end, in the chapter on reusing leftovers - who in the world ever has leftover nacho cheese sauce - but otherwise it's ...more

I really wanted this cookbook! And I'm so happy to have received it as a gift. Not all of the recipes interested me, but they looked very good. I'm anxious to start cooking. The advice for the relationship portion of the book is pretty common sense to me...but you never know. The authors seem like very fun people and I look forward to cookbooks from them in the future. I recommend this book specifically to vegetarians and vegans, however. Though aimed at both, the book would most likely interest ...more

Pretty niche interest / audience, but very useful and interesting for them nonetheless. The conversational tone of the writing makes it hard to skim, unfortunately. Not that satisfying to read on a Kindle or digital device, as the colour and pictures are missing, and also the navigation / ebook formatting weren't done very well.

Bright, colourful and fresh, I got excited about the recipes:

Watermelon Mimosa and Cloud 9 Pancakes just to start.

Light hearted spin on sensuality in the kitchen to pair with your dishes.

Modern, fun and creative it's on my Christmas list for my personal library.

Unique. Check it out!

Loved this book! It offers good relationship advice for vegans while also teaching you some really delicious-looking vegan recipes. I'm definitely not much of a cook and mainly rely on microwaving so I'm excited that after reading this book I feel an urge to try out these recipes. Thanks, guys!

Loved the stories and tidbits :) A riot to read - and my husband is vegan, I'm not so it was also informative!

Recipes? Good. Terrible sex puns on nearly every page? No.
