    I've been hoarding this library book at my house. It has some really nice salads and fantastic sides - lots of spreads that you can make, put on toast with an avocado, and have a lunch. I haven't really gotten into the mains or the baking, but I see myself coming back to it in the futu...

    Some of these recipes are great (like the baguette French toast with sautéed apples and cream cheese; easy and delicious) HOWEVER there are many issues with this cook book:1) Not enough pictures, too much text. 2) some recipes have only 2 steps listed, but each sentence in the dense...

    I've tried several recipes from this cookbook and it has to receive a huge thumbs up. The vegan information at the beginning is brief but still manages to cover the important bases. I don't agree with everything Asbell states in there but that's more a matter of opinion. She writes in ...

    I got this because I had seen a couple recipes from this book on the internet and wanted to see more, and I think it's interesting to use alternative ingredients. Also, I'm trying to eat less animal derivatives because I know it's healthier (and kinder). Anyways, a lot of these are pre...
