Love and Lemons Cookbook: An Apple-to-Zucchini Celebration of Impromptu Cooking
http://www.amazon.com/Love-Lemons-Cookb ... 6274011_19

Thoughts on this cookbook? It looks gorgeous - reminds me of other pretty seasonal vegetarian cookbooks like My New Roots and At Home in the Whole Foods Kitchen. It has a decent number of vegan recipes, and the vegetarian recipes looks simple enough to veganize. I like the vegetable-centered focus of the book.

A reviewer on Amazon typed out the full recipe list (http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-revie ... B012QH4X2A). Recipes looks yummy, but nothing very novel or exciting.

It's already indexed on Eat Your Books, which means it's a big deal release. I am a sucker for cookbooks that are already indexed, as it makes it much easier to find recipes in the cookbook using ingredients I have on hand.

Would love to hear your thoughts, PPK! I'm on the fence about it right now, since this one's pretty pricey ($19 for e-book, $22 for hard cover). Also, I just pre-ordered the new Isa and Oh She Glows cookbooks, so I might slow down on the cookbook buying binge.

Is this cookbook vegetarian or vegan? The recipes do look good but I feel like I have a bazillion cookbooks already. Like you, I'm anticipating Isa's upcoming cookbook, Oh She Glows Everyday, and in my case, perhaps Minimalist Baker's Everyday Cooking as well. So if this one is vegetarian rather than vegan, I'll pass.

LFL, it's vegetarian with a decent number of vegan or veganizable options.

I glanced through the cookbook and thought it was very vegan-friendly. Their blog is a good representation of the kinds of recipes in the cookbook. Not too fussy, lots of fresh ingredients, etc. It is organized around major vegetables and has ~3 recipes for each. It will be nice inspiration come summer-time with local produce, methinks. Gorgeous and I look forward to trying the recipes. They seem quite approachable.

I liked Alyssa's review: http://www.connoisseurusveg.com/2016/04 ... -soup.html

I published my full review today along with the recipe for the Cold Sesame Cucumber Noodle Salad.
Also, as always, links to other cookbook recipes online
AND a chance to win the cookbook!

I am definitely excited for local produce now! :)

I know this may be silly but the recipes really don't say how the recipes taste? Like... I'm sure they look good but are they good? Do you find you need to add something (extra salt, etc?).

I can only comment on the Cucumber Noodle Salad, but I thought it tasted good. There isn't that much dressing but somehow it worked. Tasted better fresh than as leftovers - the cucumbers became a bit limp.
