You can rev up your body with loads of energy, inspire the healer within, and entertain with the coolest, tastiest food ever! Get ready for some miracles, because this food is going to lift you to higher ground!” — Kathy Freston, New York Times best-selling author of The Lean: A Revolutionary 30 Day Plan for Healthy, Lasting Weight Loss; Quantum Wellness; and Veganist



“By now you'd have to be living under a rock to miss the message that eating mainly plants is good for all of us. What most don’t realize is that this way of eating has come a long way in the last decade. Eating your vegetables has never been more delightful and delicious. This book will open your eyes and your palate to a whole new way of life.” — Dr. Christiane Northrup

Crazy Sexy Kitchen is a gorgeous book simply packed with information. The recipes are well written and the photography beautiful. I am familiar with some of the chefs, having been educated at the Natural Epicurean in Austin, which is where the headquarters of Whole Foods is located at. As a trained chef, I think these are fabulous recipes that will be amazing. I plan to cook my way through the book (as soon as I break down and buy a dehydrator for some of the recipes that is). My daughter had just asked how I would make a vegan clam chowder, and the recipe in this book is even better than what I came up with. I am also a cancer survivor, so have a very real interest in eating for better health. The sections on Lifestyle and Philosophy, Preparation, and Kitchen Know-How that are in front of the 150 recipes give the reader an excellent natural foods education in themselves.

The layout, font, design, and photography is gorgeous. I am very familiar with standard annotations to recipes, GF for Gluten-Free, V for Vegan, etc. but I had to go find the index to figure out what a '1 GF SF KF Q' designation was for example. Once you see what all the abbreviations mean, it is easy to remember them however.

So for a natural foods chef, or a chef that wants to learn more about natural foods cooking, this is a fabulous resource. So many books on 'healthy cooking' including some from the Culinary Institute of America seem to think that means cutting down on salt and fat, but leaving in the white flour, sugar, and all the rest. If you are a dedicated and fearless cook, this is also a fabulous resource. My only concern is that 'normal' people who work all day, run their kids around, and have to get dinner on the table fast that everyone will eat might be frustrated.

I'm an omnivore married to a vegan and we've made 20+ meals from this book so far. Everything has been excellent. I highly recommend the Chickpea Crepes with Artichoke Aioli. Blew my mind.

I bought FIFTEEN copies of Kris Carr's last book, Crazy Sexy Diet for all of my girlfriends (and even my dad). And I'll get fifteen more of Crazy Sexy KITCHEN. Crazy Sexy Diet changed my lifestyle into a plant-focused, anti-inflammatory, more food-conscious way of living. Crazy Sexy KITCHEN is going to change the way we cook in my house: more intentional, more greens, more light, and more flavah!

And... the book is GORGEOUS. So that's a bonus to the really thoughtful recipes.

We've used Mollie Katzen's Moosewood Cookbook for years, and Crazy Sexy Kitchen is getting the new prime spot in our house, especially since we're more focused on wellness and planet-love than ever.

Crazy Sexy Kitchen will become a classic cookbook. May the plant-empowered revolution that Kris is fueling grow wild. xoxo

I have had this book for quite a few months now and I must say that it is not one I am inspired to use often. Most of the recipes have too many ingredients and steps to be enticing for use as everyday, quick meals. Those that dont fall into this category are at the other extreme, very simple and basic - the sort that you really dont need a recipe for!. I have tried a number of the recipes and they are just okay, sometimes tasty, sometimes bland, but generally not anything I would be inclined to make again - in most cases I have recipes that are similar but tastier, or quicker to prepare. Love the message that Kris imparts, but the cookbook is a let down.

Format: Hardcover
I really loved crazy sexy kitchen, and while this cookbook is beautiful and I'm sure the recipes are delicious, you can tell that her co-author and contributors wrote most of the recipes because the ingredient lists are long and most recipes look time consuming. Whenever I get cookbooks from chefs instead of cooks they tend to be that way- lovely but not for every day cooking. The flip side is a recipe for avocado on toast- not exactly revoluationary since I eat this all the time. I was looking to find some insipiration and variety to my vegan cooking but this book is not it. I was hoping for something along the lines of 'every day Italian' or 'every day Mexican' that are quick, delicious, and have relatively short ingredient lists. I was really looking forward to this book but don't think I'll use it much.

Kris Carr's new cookbook "Crazy, Sexy, Kitchen" was a welcome addition to my lifestyle. I just got back on the juicing train & her creative & delicious vegan fare has fit in perfectly with my new eating habits. A majority of the recipes are a bit labor intensive with some obscure ingredients (nothing you can't find at a whole foods or local health store) but as she says, once you start stocking your kitchen with those foods they'll be there at your disposal. I started out with some of the easier ones and created the Mushroom Crepes with Artichoke Aioli, Veggie Quesadillas & Brussel Sprouts.

The verdict?

Mushroom Crepes: The crepes probably required the most work but I had a lot of fun doing it & you feel super creative getting it all done. I mean you're making aioli out of soaked cashews! I'm also a mushroom fanatic so its hard to do me wrong on this front. The end result was pretty tasty + the GF crepes I think will make a great base for whatever you choose to fill them with! Side note: My boyfriend who is an order steak or pork chops at dinner kinda guy ate them and said "I don't know why vegan cooking gets such a bad rap, this is delicious!"

Veggie Quesadillas: The quesadillas were incredibly easy, though I think probably much better with real cheese. I'm trying to love the Daiya cheese but I'm not quite buying it. Just tastes like fake cheese to me. Otherwise its a fun recipe that I you can add other ingredients as you please!

Brussel Sprouts: The brussel sprouts I was wildly excited for but they have some really great bites & some bland ones. Maybe the answer is a bit extra on the other ingredients? It's a nice, easy recipe to make them at home though.
