Betty Crocker has survived the decades by providing consumers with food information and food products that are contemporary without being faddish. The first hardcover cookbook, Betty Crocker's Picture Cookbook was published in 1950 and quickly became a national best seller. Since then, more than 250 Betty Crocker cookbooks have been published.

The recipes in this book are simple but interesting, and use ingredients which can be found at a typical grocery store. Each recipe provides an approximate required preparation and cooking time. Color photos are offered for many of the dishes, and the recipes are well-organized and easy to follow. There are a great many recipes (I didn't count them!), so I find myself reaching for this book often, to find something different to make. I think this is a good book for new vegetarians, as it should erase the common misconception that vegetarian food is difficult to make and requires things like tofu and nutritional yeast! Many recipes suggest a simple meat addition, which would be helpful for families with both vegetarians and meat-eaters.

The few recipes I have tried from this book I liked. They are easy to prepare and the ingredients arent too hard to find. I didn't think I could make so many good dishes without meat. There is also tips on the bottom of some recipes for adding meat if you wish. Great book.

I've been looking to cut back on the amount of meat my family eats, with the added complication that my husband is a died-in-the-wool meat and potatoes man who is allergic to beans and soy. I've acquired a sizeable collection of vegetarian cookbooks, and while I've found recipes that we like and that my husband isn't allergic to in most of them, this is the cookbook I turn to again and again. The recipes here are easy to cook and feature ingredients that are found in any grocery store. The first time I flipped through this book, I was delighted to realize that I had the ingredients for several of the recipes already sitting on my pantry and refrigerator shelves! This isn't vegetarian "gourmet" fare, but the recipes are tasty and filling and easy to prepare. Serious vegetarians might scoff at this book, but I would definitely recommend it for "occasional vegetarians" or for those who are very new to, and perhaps intimidated by, the idea of vegetarian cooking!

I love this cookbook. Every recipe I've made has been a huge hit. One thing I like is that many of the ingredients are store bought, so not everything is homemade. For me, this saves a lot of time, but you still can throw a good meal together. There are several recipes that I use every week. The recipes are fairly simple and don't very long to prepare. It is easily a beginner book, but everyone can enjoy using this book. I highly recommend this book.

I became a Vegetarian about 6 months ago and have recieved no help from family. I got this book as a gift from my wonderful boyfriend and I love it! It is so easy to understand and the recipes are quick and simple, which is great for a busy student. There are recipes in here that I love and are so easy but that I would have never thought of otherwise. Everything in here is also very nutritious. Most meals are lower in calories (under 350) and contain nutritious ingredients that are easily found in your local supremarket. A lot of the ingredients my family already uses, which makes it great for split veggie/non-veggie households. Overall this is a wonderful book that I would recommend to any vegetarian, new or otherwise.

I've been a vegetarian for 6 years now and this was my first vegetarian cookbook that I bought, and it's still my favorite.

These recipes are quick and easy to make (for the majority anyway) with ingredients that are readily available in any grocery store (lots of veg. cookbooks have ingredients that are so obscure that I can never find them). There are many, many great tasting recipes in this book- even my non-vegetarian friends and family love many of the recipes in this book. And several of them include instruction for adding fish or chicken for those who still would like to include those in their diet.

It's a great buy, and you'll enjoy it for years to come!

I got this as a gift, so one consolation is I didn't pay for it. Most of the recipes here call for processed "convenience" foods and frozen vegetables. If you are going vegetarian, hate to cook, and not worried about health concerns or flavor for that matter, by all means, this is the book for you. However, if you are looking for vegetarian recipes that are quick, healthy, and calling for fresh foods, I would highly recommend "Moosewood Cooks at Home".

This is a great cookbook for vegetarians who don't have a lot of time to cook and don't mind cooking with packaged items like canned beans and frozen vegetables. It would also be useful for someone easing into vegetarian eating, or someone trying to ease kids into vegetarian eating! It has lots of good recipes for soups, stews, and chilis (Curried Sweet Potato and Lentil Stew is one of my favorites, as is Red Beans and Rice Chili). Some other recipes I really enjoyed are Vegetable Jambalaya, Wild Rice Frittata, Rice Noodles with Peanut Sauce, and Pizza Casserole. A downside to this cookbook is that many of the dishes call for white rice, which I try to avoid. I found that in most cases it wasn't possible to substitute brown rice, which was a disappointment for me.
