I have this and was wondering if anyone else did. I like the book and it is a good resource with good info, but I am having a hard time getting inspiration for the recipes.

Anyone tried anything from that book?

I haven't actually made too much from this one. There is a soba/kale recipe that is very easy. I have made it a couple of times. I really like that one. But I think that is the only thing I have made.

I think my favorite recipe from that book is the molasses cornbread. I made it so much that everyone got sick of it and now I am not allowed to anymore. The rooibos chai is really good. So is the white bean and kale soup and the cardamom tapioca. Oh yeah, and the lemon poppy seed cake. An omni said it was the best he'd had.

Unless there are lots of repeats in the new book, all of the above recipes are in Get It Ripe. And they're also my favorites from that book! I love that cornbread and the soba-kale dish.

I haven't bought the new book, and I don't think I will. But I'm looking forward to getting it from the library.

I have it too but I haven't noticed any repeat recipes from Get It Ripe. I've just been too busy to cook from it yet, but it has some things I'm definitely interested in trying so I don't have any suggestions yet. There's a bean recipe in there that looks good. I'm always interested in a really good, basic baked bean style recipe and that's one I plan to try one Sunday with some cornbread...

Oops. I read this as Get it Ripe. I tested for Ripe from Around Here. I can't even remember the recipes off the top of my head, so I guess I wasn't blown away, but I remember it being OK.

D'oh! I read it wrong too. I do have Ripe From Around Here but I haven't made a ton of stuff yet. We really like the lemon poppy pancakes and the home fries. I have been wanting to make the baked bean recipe seitanicverses mentioned. I think it required some kind of nut butter that I need to get. Oh and I just remembered that she posted on facebook that there was a typo in that recipe. Add 2 Tb of brown sugar or maple syrup to the ingredients. The instructions call for a sweetener but there isn't one listed.

I highly recommend the Apple-Flax Pudding and the Constellation Cookies. I think you have to be into simple healthy-type foods to be into jae's recipes, but I am, so I really like a lot of them. (I tested for this book, and have her first book.)

Yeah, I love simple, healthy recipes too. Maybe I should try something from the book this week. I really love Get It Ripe I've just had no time for much cooking lately. The Apple-Flax pudding sounds especially appealing right now and I have some apples to use up!

I love the sweet potato-date muffins and the African stew.
