I gave it this review based on no pictures (minus the cover) and very basic not very creative recipes. I would only make about 4 recipes in this book.

Double Take / 978-1-55832-424-4

I really wanted to like this cookbook, but I just can't. Even my vegetarian friends who love cooking and are always eager for new cookbooks just didn't like this one at all.

1. No pictures. This is a huge deal for me - I've gotten to the point where I almost won't buy a cookbook if it doesn't have pictures of at least a third of the recipes. "Double Take" has no pictures at all. This isn't just an issue of wanting to flip through and find something appetizing - it'

Jeremy Holt and A. J. Rathbun, Double Take: One Fabulous Recipe, Two Finished Dishes – Feeding Vegetarians and Omnivores Together (Harvard Common Press, 2010)

My family is, culinarily, about as dysfunctional as it gets. I am a pescetarian who'll eat pretty much anything. My daughter is a vegetarian who doesn't eat most exotic vegetables.

The book's purpose is laid out early (Page 1): "'Double Take' is a book in which all the recipes... are for one master dish, but you end up with servings for both meat-eaters and vegetarians. . . ."

One example. I just made the "Mighty Mac and Cheese" recipe. First off, it was tasty. Second, I ha

It can be difficult to get people to agree on a meal, but when you put vegetarians and omnivores together, it is near impossible at times to please everyone. Double Take attempts to bridge the gap and bring common meals for both in one recipe. With just a couple substitutions, dishes can be prepared for both vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. From appetizers to soups to entrees, A.J. Rathbun and Jeremy Holt bring both of these lifestyles to the table.

Feeding meat eaters and vegetarian's at the same table is always a dilemma. This book has an excellent solution with recipes that are pleasing to both palates
