I won't get mine until next week (woo!), but I can try and remember some of the things I loved best from testing. There were some coffee crusted ribs that were delicious. Harrisa burgers (made from tempeh), chimichurri wraps, a grilled cheese flatbread type thing, my two favourite pizzas EVER, they're the only pizzas I'm allowed to make at home now - one with spinach sauce and one with buffalo tempeh and ranch dressing, some great Tunisian skewers, amazingly easy hash browns (never made them any other way since testing them), and a fabulous reuben breakfast sandwich made of English muffin. There were of course sweet things but I didn't make many of them. There were also some drinks, some kind of amazing vodka and orange with ice cream, and an amazing sparkly wine with grilled fruit.

i got my book yesterday, and holy cow, the recipes are quite fantastic! i can already tell this is going to be heavily used once the weather warms up. i'm live in GA so it's too hot to use the oven during late spring and the summer months. i think with a lesson from my hubby i can learn how to operate our gas grill.

the cookbook layout is fantastic with one recipe per page. the index is also complete and thorough. however, i do love me a table of contents (or chapters) with all the recipes listed, so at some point i will be typing up all the recipes so i can have a list of each chapters contents on the chapter page. it's nerdy, but it really doesn't take that much time. i'll definitely post back here once that little project is complete so other organizational nerds like me can get all crafty with their cookbook.

p.s. edited to add: i'm still surprised that the price between bn.com and amazon.com have not leveled out. bn.com is still selling it for about $5 less than amazon.com

Thank you, bookwormbethie, for letting me know it's in your hands! Amazon is freaking me out with the temporarily unavailable stuff, so I never know where the supply stands.

The publisher really did a beautiful job on the layout, I agree. It's crisp and clean. Totally with you on the recipe listings, too. Thank you for taking that on!

The look inside feature is now live, but all you can really see is part of the index.

Pricing at Amazon alone fluctuates insanely. If you ever see a book for full price, don't buy it. It'll drop in a matter of days. They use their own very mysterious formulas.

the other part that is also very awesome about the cookbook is that the publisher is part of the 'green press initiative' so all the pages in the book are printed on 100% post consumer recycled content. there is a list of specific amounts of natural resources that were saved too from using this recycled material. i thought this was so cool!

i'd also like to add, at least on my computer screen, the cookbook font color looks red in the amazon.co preview. it is definitely not red in person! ugh, that would be horrible! in real life, the font color is dark brown, it's nice, easy on the eyes.

still recovering my from my nasty tummy bug that my hubby lovingly passed along to me, the family that pukes together stays together right?! perhaps will take a wee nap, and then type up some more recipes. thankfully seeing food and reading about food does not make me gag like it would have a few days ago.......

I'm pretty sure my husband is going to be staging a cookbook intervention for me. I had told myself "no more until Isa's Oct book!" However, I think you had me at harissa seitan burgers. Well, its cheaper than eating out, right?

Damn. I need this book too. Assuming one defines "need" in a very self-indulgent manner.

I have mine, and am with Tami right now. Woot! Anyway, I just wanted to point out 2 things. First there's a mistake and what's called a harissa seitan burger is in fact a Harissa tempeh burger (and is delicious even if you don't love tempeh), and the spinach pizza I mentioned above didn't make it into the book. That's more brilliant for everyone though, because she's going to put it on her blog.

Amazon told me April 9. I'm really unhappy about the constantly changing dates and that they gave it to Barnes & Noble first (you really sell more books that way?). But I'll probably get over it as soon as I actually have the book in my hands! :)
