This book puts an extremely welcome comfort food spin on vegetarian fare. Dishes are simple and "homey," yet not always strictly obvious. (Broiled green tomatoes and mascarpone grits? Raspberry and chevre sweet potatoes? Yes, please!) Much more a resource for finding new staples than occasional novelties, and with an arrangement and tone that fit into my own life well, I anticipate getting a lot of use out of this.

Being a vegetarian for almost a decade, sometimes I feel like there is a disconnect between what my heart and emotions want and the food I put into my mouth.

I'm definitely the intended audience

Calling all vegetarian midwestern adventure cooks! Just me? I hope not! I found this book at a moment that I was looking for a great book to help me feed my family on hikes and picnics. This has lots of that, and also has general vegetarian food with a midwestern sensibility (casseroles and potlucks, oh my). I found myself bookmarking more than half the recipes. Excellent! I paid full price for my copy myself and am pleased with my purchase.
