Impulse buy at Target. So far I made the pumpkin pie (I scaled it back to one pie - the recipe makes two) and the frijoles de la olla (minus the picco, i used a can of herdez on top)...both really good. The beans were so yummy - the boyfriend even ate the onions.

I know some people will complain about the use of Gardein and stuff in the book - but whatever...The recipes are do-able and not everything asks for faux meat stuff.

I was flicking through that one not long ago and it looked like yummy stuff. But I have so many other cookbook wants that I didn't get it. I'd like to know how you feel after a couple more recipes.

This book was my then-omni boyfriend's first vegan cookbook, and it was instrumental in his vegan conversion. We still use it regularly, and we love it. I know a lot of people complain about the brand-name placement and heavy use of premade foods, but I think they work, plus I've been vegan long enough to know how to substitute homemade analogues. The fried chicken is superb; the "skin" is freakishly convincing and positively inspired. We've loved (and repeatedly made) the lentil shepherd's pie and the chicken pot pies, and we use the cashew cream constantly. We've never had a bad meal from this book.
