Inspired by the first vegan cookbook thread.

Mine is a tie between Veganomicon and VWAV, though I have worked through a lot of Vietnamese Fusion: Vegetarian Cuisine (I think there might be like one non-vegan recipe in there). And Extraveganza, because it's my go-to for cakes/pies/desserts.

I see myself using Bryant Terry's new book a lot when I move into a house with a bigger kitchen.

I aim to use Viva Vegan and World Vegan Feast more because I love them so.

AFR and VWAV, although lately I've been using V'Con quite a bit. I really want to use Viva Vegan more this spring/summer because I enjoyed all stuff I made out of it last year.

Definitely AFR. In fact, I just had the edamame pesto for lunch, along with a cup of Irish Stew with Seitan. Before that, I went to the grocery store to buy ingredients for next week's menu, which includes smoky split pea soup, chipotle chili with Brussels sprouts, cool slaw, and sushi roll edamame salad.

But I am trying to eat healthier. Before that, definitely V'Con.

AFR for sure. I've already had to buy a replacement copy because my first one is so stained and tattered.

VWAV. And no other cookbook even comes close. I try and branch out, but when in doubt I return to VWAV.

AFR or VCIYCJ. Maybe V'con, but it still scares me a bit.

I think mine would have to be (the original) Uncheese cookbook. Vcon & AFR are probably tied for 2nd, although AFR may pull out ahead as soon as my son gets a little older and I start cooking from scratch more often again.

AFR definitely. Followed by Veganomicon and then probably Viva Vegan.

It's definitely AFR. Closely followed by VwaV and Veganomicon.

500 Vegan Recipes, I think. And I've made quite a lot of things out of Veganomicon as well.

Vegan Brunch - I think those muffin recipes are the best and I make the savory stuff for dinner all the time. Vegan Cupcakes is a close second.

AFR hands down; I use it multiple times a week. After that, probably Veganomicon.

Without a doubt any book written by Isa or Terry. Seriously, it's so sad. I haven't been much of a cookbook user until recently, and I love it! So far I've cooked the most recipes from AFR and VWAV, though I'm finally going to conquer my fear of Veganomicon and also explore more of VV. I expect my cookbook usage to drastically change within the next year.

VwaV - the cover is missing (I use it as a bookmark as well as half the index with pages torn out, jumbled and out of order). It's warped, yellowed, food-spattered with curled pages, dog-eared, very well used and much loved. It's just a wreck, but it's MY wreck, baby. One of these days, I'll get a new copy.

That's mine too- my VwaV is taped together, has snarky notes written in teh margin and i think there are definitely booklice in there. But there is no doubt which book i know inside and out.

You know, I originally thought I had mostly utilized "How it all Vegan" until I started buying a few more vegan cookbooks, but I then I remembered a cookbook I got when I first became vegetarian, some 15 years ago. It was from an animal rescue in Loveland, CO, and I used it to pieces. It's one of those member cookbooks that you can send in and have made-I'm sure it was a fundraiser for them. But I can't remember the name of it! Anyway, it was wonderful. It had some great cashew cheeze recipes, and all around was a solid introduction to cooking without animal products. There are still a few recipes I use from it pretty consistently.

I remember the woman who gave us the tour of the farm asking me how I could still eat cheese.
I should have listened to her way back then. :(

AFR, Vcon and Vegan Diner, 20 minutes to Dinner. This does vary but consistently these.

New Farm Vegetarian. Seriously the best cookbook Ive ever had and it looks like hippy commune wrote it. The recipes are so simple, almost to simple you would think at first, yet come out amazing. The mac & cheese is one of our favorites.

AFR & Color Me Vegan. I have a ton of cookbooks, but I routinely go back to those. V'Con, Peas & Thank You are just behind them.
