What a book! Gorgeous photographs and recipes for every holiday and gathering there is. From Halloween to Mardi Gras! The recipes are interesting, and delicious. And the best part, the recipes are nice and short and easy.

There are tons of recipes I still want to try and I’ll keep this book close! Here is a taste of the recipes in this book:

* Creamy Polenta
* Fudge Dip
* Hot Chocolate Muffins
* Lemon-Rosemary Meatballs
* Portobello Pot Roast
* Tofu Quiche
* Pumpkin Cheesecake

Great new book from the Happy Herbivore. Luscious pictures of delicious and nutritious food. I may not be ready for a turkey free thanksgiving but she has oodles of great recipes.

Another great cookbook from the happy herbivore. This one is broken out by occasion or event such as Thanksgiving, tailgating, Easter, picnics, etc.

Some recipes are repeats but I don't mind it so much because of the way the book is broken out by event. It is actually nice having these recipes alongside others. So The cookbook also helps with menu planning.

I know it's not even Halloween but I will be making the eggnog smoothie next!!!
I'll try some of these recipes, even brown gravy and make in small amounts. Not trying to feed 4 or more people, just one. Plus if I don't like it, then not losing much money and time spent.

I received this book through a Goodreads Giveaway, and it arrived at just the right time. Between my family and friends, I know so many people with different dietary restrictions - vegetarian, Kosher, Halal, gluten-free, soy-free, lactose intolerant - and of course this is the time of year when all of those people in my life come together. With this cookbook, I could easily build solid meals that cater to everyone, without substitutions or alternative dishes for one or two people. I especially a ...more

I prefer the other Happy Herbivore cookbooks instead. Despite the fact that the author has a meal planning business, the menus in here are really just suggestions of what items might be nice to eat together, not helpful if you want to precisely cook for a specific number of people and have very little waste.
Originally I had ordered the e-book and paperback. AFter getting the paperback I cancelled my e-book order. It won't be a ready reference in my kitchen.

Sorry to say I was disappointed becaus

Not my favorite of her cookbooks, but still quite a good guide. There is quite a bit of overlap with other Happy Herbivore books, so this is not required for the bookshelf to get by. The portobello steaks are delish, and the rootbeer float cupcakes are a new favorite!

It is pretty and very user-friendly.

This cookbook has lovely photographs and simple to follow vegan recipes. The recipes are arranged by holiday and have helpful icons showing if a recipe is quick to fix or requires preparation ahead of time, and if they are soy free, gluten free, portable or can be made ahead of time. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.

Another beautiful cookbook from the Happy Herbivore. I can actually picture myself celebrating holidays the vegan way and not feeling deprived after reading this book. Note that this book contains many duplicate recipes from her other books, as well as references to them. It does have some original recipes as well. I like this book for the menus and compilations and ideas.

My favorite of her cookbooks! I followed her recipes for all my Thanksgiving dishes, my family loved the taste! It's great to have yummy food that is Whole-Food Plant-Based No Oil! I'm looking forward to hosting more dinner parties!

I love all of Lindsey's recipes, and this book is no exception. Everything is easy to prepare, with no hard-to-find ingredients. This is something any vegan, or anyone looking to incorporate more plant-based recipes, needs to have on their shelves.

Feels a bit thin, but it does offer some good ideas about making a vegan meal plan for holidays. Tried the Portobello Pot Roast and it was a bit hit. Easy to make comfort food that was still kind of impressive.

Looking forward to trying more from the talented Lindsay Nixon.

There are some very inventive recipes in this book, whether you're vegan or omnivore. I'm vegetarian, but I do have a lot of vegan friends who I cook for. I will definitely turn back to this book for recipes.

Another good cookbook from Lindsay Nixon. The stuffed acorrn squash and pumpkin pie were a hit. Will be making more recipes from this one.

I love the other Happy Herbivore books but these recipes exciting me. I keep looking through it but end up picking something from a different book instead.
