I should *really* be working on school work but instead I thought I’d go through the new vegan cookbooks I got for Christmas. My extremely sweet husband went to my amazon wish list and said “Yes”! I’m still reading through them but so far it looks like I’ve got some winners here.
Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Food by Alicia C. Simpson She has great meal ideas for how to use the different recipes. It’s a mix of down-home type stuff with a California influence. Some good info for beginning vegans as well.
Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar by Isa Chandra Moskowitz & Terry Hope Romero From what I have been able to garner, this is THE book for vegan cookies. I have to admit I was pretty excited looking through these recipes. I think black & whites are soon to be made here!
Vegan with a Vengeance by Isa Chandra Moskowitz came up many times in my searches so I felt I needed to own this one. Very New York feel to it. I am looking forward to the brunch recipes and the entrees the most.
And I’m still waiting for this one to arrive, but The Happy Herbivore by Lindsay S. Nixon doesn’t even come out for a few more days. The low fat vegan recipes on her website look amazing so I can’t wait to sit and peruse the book.
Next time I want to waste time I’ll let you know which vegan & vegetarian cookbooks I already own. I’ve been flirting with this type of cooking for some time (and I LOVE cookbooks) so I do have a few. After Christmas this year I actually went through my cookbook shelves and cleaned out the cookbooks I think I’ll probably never use again. I kept the classics plus some that contain at least a decent number of vegetarian/vegan recipes. For now my shelves look organized. Ask me again in a week; It won’t look that good!
*NOTE I’m new to this and, for the life of me, cannot get the little picture links to show up. I’m sure I am doing something wrong. Give me a day or two and I’ll try to fix it but for now, it’s time to go back to my paranormal romance (Hey, I did fall asleep this afternoon!), a vegan chocolate cookie I took from the freezer, and some almond milk. Goodnight!
