Has anyone here read this book or tried the recipes yet? There is a blog tour for this book and some of the outtakes and recipes look good.

There's a copy in my local Barnes and Noble that I have been visiting when I am in the store. I am really tempted to buy it because there are some unique sounding recipes and the pictures look good. (There are a few recipes that call for premade cream cheese and such, which I am not a fan of, but it makes sense given that some of the recipes are designed for omnis to cook for vegans).

I can't wait to start cooking with this book for myself and my omni boyfriend, though it does seem to be more weekend than weeknight meals.

I've now tried several recipes from the Lusty Vegan, and the results I've gotten range from Pretty Good to Amazing.

But two downsides:
1) Too many pages filled with the authors' dating anecdotes. I want a cookbook, not a blog on single lifestyles.
2) The recipes tend to be expensive. "Lusty" is the right gimmick, these are foods you cook when you want to impress someone, rather than foods for daily living.

The hoagies dazzled me! The sliders are great, too. The chocolate-covered strawberries are delicious. The shiitake bread pudding is really good, too, though it's more oily than I would have liked (To be fair, I used canola oil when they called for safflower, but I still think the oil should be cut in half).

No problem! Part of my new cookbook routine is to go through and type out all the recipes, bolding the ones I'm most interested in along the way. It's a little obsessive, but it helps me actually cook my way through my cookbooks!

The thing is, if you think it's a terrible name you probably won't like the book so it kind of works. There are pictures of people (all in hetero couples) making out, sometimes wearing less clothing than you would typically see in a cookbook, and lots of dating advice.
