I've always been confused by Bake and Destroy. I see her pop up all over the place and I really like her website and ideas but...is this completely vegan stuff?

Yes, the book is 100% vegan recipes! I do not know if she is vegan....

I put this book on my wishlist just a few days ago and then it arrived on my doorstep yesterday because my brother got it for me for my birthday! It's a cool looking book with pretty photos. I'm most interested in the snacks chapter! Savory cupcakes (well, muffins, really) are the bomb. Should be a fun book to cook through!

The recipe for artichoke dip calls for Vegeta seasoning...and offers no explanation. What is that? Would it be crucial? Because I'm betting that if I haven't seen it here yet, I'd have to order it, which I kind of hate doing for special ingredients.

Last I heard, she's vegetarian. I don't know if she's gone vegan or eats mostly vegan (which is great), or it's just something being reflected on the blog with the book coming out...would love to hear she's gone vegan, though! The most I've discerned from reading her blog and the book is that she loves vegan food, of course.

Yes, I wondered what this was.

Do you have any Polish shops? We have loads of them and they are all crammed full of this stuff in different size packages. I think it's sort of like vegetable broth powder.

Huh, and nope. I'll probably just leave it out, it's only a teaspoon.

For anyone in Australia who's looking for it, I've seen Vegeta available at Woolworths (otherwise, Massel will do!). I imagine you could replace it with any type of powdered vegetable stock/broth you keep on hand.

I picked this up over the weekend and it looks like such a fun book. Honestly, it's not my usual style of cooking so I nearly put it back on the shelf, but Boyfriend grabbed it out of my hands and he loved it- but he's definitely the junky, party food type. He was particularly excited about the prospect of totchos, so I made those last night. These were super easy (since they use stuff like tinned refried beans), but we'd just gotten off a plane so I was happy with something quick and simple. This book looks like a go-to for football food!

Potato gems have just gone on my shopping list, I understand you can get sweet potato ones now as well.

I made her Ranch Kale Chips yesterday. I was scared to veer from my normal recipe but I am so glad I did. They're delicious. I am excited to try her other variations. I made them in my dehydrator so they're perfect.

I love all of her creative ideas - the pictures in the book make me very happy.

Thanks for affirming this. Every time I see the title I think "we're talking 'bad' as in naughty or rebellious, right? Not bad vegans as in 'eat eggs and bacon every morning?'"

I had a cookbook called "V Cuisine: the Art of New Vegan Cooking" in which the author defended honey as nutritious and included it in a few recipes. Her take on "the honey thing" (with weasel wording) is even covered on the book's amazon page... and I thought "why include anything in your cookbook you have to preemptively defend from customers?" V Cuisine was an unremarkable cookbook (for me), but it left me more wary of vegan cookbooks by authors who aren't vegan themselves.

I was on the promotional blogtour today and have the recipe for the Shepherd's Pie Pizza posted, plus pics of that, Samoa Joe cupcakes, Pretzel Dogs and the Chocolate Cake (from the DIY mix) if anyone is interested: http://comesconewithme.com/2013/09/17/t ... -blogtour/
Plus, a cat video.

I made those. I hope you have better luck than I did with them! They totally fell to pieces in my waffle iron, so I was left with falafel waffle crumbs more than anything else. But, they were delicious falafel waffle crumbs!

I also recommend the German Chocolate Cookies. Yummy.

I don't have a waffle iron, so I'm just going to make patties and bake them like I usually do. Anytime a book has a falafel recipe, it's one of the first that I make, and not having a waffle iron is not going to stop me!

Good! I'll bet they're work out much better that way!

I'm like that, too. Falafel always goes right to the top of the list if a new book has a recipe for it!

I was hesitant to purchase this because I have sooooo many cookbooks. But I did and I'm glad I did! I received it today and I can't wait to start cooking from it. The recipes are really creative (many are a little time consuming, though, but that's okay). I also appreciate that the ingredients are all really accessible, and very little (if any) use of fake meat products or fake cheese (blech!) Also, the falafel waffles where you basically put falafel dough in your waffle maker is genius, and that's top of my list to try, at least as far as the dinner recipes are concerned.

I've seen Vegeta at World Market but have not tried it. http://www.worldmarket.com/product/vegeta+seasoning+tin.do?from=Search&cx=0

For anyone in Lancashire looking for this, there is a large shop in Skelmersdale called Asia International which sells it.
Also Asda does: http://groceries.asda.com/asda-webstore ... t/39185475
