I have one other Happy Herbivore cookbook, and love how Lindsay Nixon puts together tasty, healthy vegan recipes that rely on whole foods, instead of processed ingredients. I pre-ordered this new holiday book back in May of this year -- and was so excited to have it arrive today! I've only made one recipe so far, so I will be sure to update my review as I use this more.

One of the reasons I was so excited about this book is because it really does solve the dilemma of what you can make/bring to holiday gatherings when you're a vegan. While a lot of vegan cookbooks do have great recipes that work well for holiday gatherings, it's nice to have so many recipes in one place -- and to especially have easy access to traditional holiday fare like pumpkin pie, cheesecake, sweet potato casseroles, and various dips.

Just be warned that there are a lot of repeat recipes from other HH books. This doesn't bother me since I only own Happy Herbivore Light & Lean: Over 150 Low-Calorie Recipes with Workout Plans for Looking and Feeling Great, but if you own more HH books, you might be disappointed in the number of repeats. I'd say that maybe 1/8 of the recipes are from previous HH books. (The repeats are noted in the headnote to each recipe.

An excellent book if you are ok with no meat, no dairy and no oil and you want ideas on how to apply this way of cooking to any holiday or special event. Works especially well if you use the "Full Index"

You see my wife has medical issues and her doctor put her on this diet of NO meat, NO dairy, and absolutely NO OIL. I said I would do this with her to support. I had no idea what we were in for. The meat and dairy were challenging enough. But the no oil made it very, very hard. We took cooking classes this summer. The instructor always ended up using oil. When you ask how to make the recipe without oil the instructor looked at you like you were from another planet. We kept adjusting the recipes we would learn from class to not use oil and they all ended up tasting like cardboard. In desperation we kept looking and happened to stumble across Lindsay's cook books. Eureka! For us it was like we struck gold as none of Lindsay's recipes contain meat, dairy or oil.

The recipes are pretty easy to do and contain pretty normal ingredients. I thought we were doomed to a life of salad and raw veggies. With Lindsay's cook books we were able to have normal great tasting foods. Pancakes, muffins, meatball subs, burgers, fries, pizza, lasagna, spaghetti-ohs, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate cake, and brownies and yes great salads and veggie dishes. CAUTION: If you are new to cooking with plants, it can be challenging getting started. There was an adjustment period where we learned how to use rice, beans and veggies in great tasting meals. I must admit it was lot of hard work at first transitioning to no meat, no dairy and no oil, but well worth it.

For us the cost of her books has been well worth it.

Eating plant-based can feel like a lonely thing. Many of the cook books I have purchased scale the recipes to one or two...almost implying that I can't convince more than one other person to forego meat, dairy and oil with me. I was looking forward to a plant-based book for people who want to eat together.

The back cover says it has menus, which was a selling point for me because I would love to see Celebration for x occasion, serves 6. The menus recommend dishes to serve for an occasion but the recipes themselves are all scaled differently. For example, the brunch menu has Tofu scramble (2 servings) plus French toast (4 servings) or Fluffy Pancakes/Waffles (8 pieces so probably 4 servings). I would prefer to see things scaled similarly or suggest for 4 people start here...add x and y dish to extend to 6 and 8.

I like the color-coded pages which make it easy to stay within a certain theme. However the orange/yellow font in some sections makes it hard to read except under bright florescent kitchen lighting.

I cooked the spaghetti-ohs the same day I got the book. They are worth making.

Another winner by Lindsay. I have all of her cookbooks and don't mind the repeats because of how this book is laid out by events. Lots of new recipes that I haven't seen. I love the book and the concept as socializing, since we've become vegan, has been challenging. Now I know right where to go when I need to bring a dish or having people over! And Thanksgiving already figured out for us. What a treat! The font is a little small for my "older" eyes, but I'm thrilled to have this cookbook! I think it's great. I'm buying several for gifts and Christmas gifts!
