I have a relative who routinely cuts the cayenne in recipes to 1/8 teaspoon. Some people like their food bland.

Did I hear a rumor that Fee is writing a PB&J cookbook? I'm so excited for the chapters on PB&J soups and PB&J salads!

they should sell 'simple vegan' and 'easy vegan' together, like as a two pack.

Sorry, there will be no salads chapter. Vegans hate salad chapters.

Hey, not liking spicy food is not the same as liking bland food.

There's also a note underneath the Mac & Cheese recipe that pretty much says that there are lots of different kinds of vegan cheese out there, some better than others, so try some and see which ones you like.

What a cop-out! That recipe doesn't sound good to me at all.

I read this and pretty much thought it was perfect for my Aunt who basically only cooks the A-typical mid-American meat & potatoes meals. She keeps saying she wants to cook for me but I have yet to find a cookbook I think is suitable. Every cookbook I have always seems a bit too, well, lets be honest, fun. I might have to find a copy to check out in more detail though. Can anyone else suggest a good cookbook for the "A-typical mid-American meat & potatoes" people?

This is pretty much exactly what I would make up if somebody told me to create a Mac & Cheese recipe. That is why I buy cookbooks and don't spend much time making up recipes.

Well, for a dissenting opinion :) I have this book and I like it. I don't need anyone to tell me how to make a smoothie, but I have to admit, I do prefer simpler (aka more bland) food. And I don't love cooking and fussing. Too many ingredients and procedures scare me off. I don't like using tons of pots and pans and making a big mess in the kitchen. So a more stream-lined and simplified book appeals to me, and I will probably use this book. Also, it has nutritional info. A lot of vegetarian and vegan books do not. So I appreciate that. Not all of us are expert chefs! This book will appeal to the people who buy those 'five ingredient or less' cookbooks and are not as confident in the kitchen.

It's awesome that you've found a cookbook that suits your needs! Many of the people here are really into cooking so we're not really the target demographic for this sort of cookbook, but I'm glad it fills a need that hasn't yet been adequately addressed.

I feel the same say, I really like this cookbook. We are moving and I don't have all of my kitchen stuff available. Also, I am busy getting the house ready to sell. I like that it is easy and appeals to my family.

Wow, they're really edgy, aren't they.

If I were picking a cookbook for someone who just wants to be able to make stuff for the occasional vegan guest, I think it'd be Supermarket Vegan. The ingredients are totally non-intimidating but the food is still flavorful and maybe a little different.. I'd love to see more books like it, hunting down nooch and gluten flour and soymilk powder and almond meal etc. is great for everyday vegans but I think it makes the barrier to entry too high (and expensive). Vegan on the Cheap might be another good choice for similar reasons, and it's pretty mainstream-america with easy casseroles and such.

Anything that sounds good in the GH one I already have about five other recipes for. Meh. Glad some people will like it, though.

I haven't made anything from it yet, but I like that it has lots of pictures, gives recipes for basics like mayo and ricotta, and gives an idea of the time that is needed to do a recipe. The recipes look simple, sometimes the ingredient list is long, but the steps are few. To me it looks appetizing for the most part.

Although I do enjoy challenging recipes from time to time, most days when I get home, I'm just so beat, I just want something that is straightforward and that my part-time vegan kids can make easily. Both Supermarket Vegan and Vegan on the Cheap fit that bill, and I have both of them. I probably won't get GHVC because we've already covered those bases with SV and VotC. On a not entirely unrelated note, anyone notice that since they've become vegan, they like food spicier than they once did? I definitely like a bit more heat than I did when I was omni. Supermarket Vegan has some recipes (such as the Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burritos) that are almost TOO spicy. But I digress.

Okay, reading through this book I changed my mind about it. They suggest using CHINESE EGG NOODLES (no mention of a vegan alternative), saying: "Because of the egg in the dough, they have a soft texture and rich flavor that creates a delicious base [...]" What is that doing in a vegan cookbook? If that is how well they did their research... They also have at least one recipe with honey, though they do suggest agave nectar as an alternative in this case.

It doesn't seem uncommon for vegan cookbooks written by non-vegan authors to mention honey, but egg? c'mon, people...
