More About the Author

Kris Holechek Peters has been baking since she was old enough to make a proper mess. Taught by her great-grandmothers and aunt, the joy of providing excellent baked goods to her loved ones was always her mission and the switch to a vegan lifestyle did not stop that. Rather, it opened up a whole new world, one where the adaptation of old family recipes and the creation of new ones became both a game and a goal- a tasty, tasty goal.

When not covered in dough and melted chocolate, Kris lives in the Midwest with her kitties and enjoys a dedicated yoga practice, studying linguistics, food science and indulging in really good espresso.

I took this book out of the library and was so happy with the promise it held that I immediately ordered one for my own from amazon.. The caution is that when I went to trader joes for the 17 bean barley mix and the cream of wheat I was told both items had been discontinued. Not just at the store but in the entire area I'm in. I guess I can be creative by using bobs red mill for the bean barley and again for the cream of wheat..but it is disappointing .this book just came out in ll/12

I have always been a fan of Trader Joe's. So many fun, interesting things to try, and such a friendly staff. However, I started getting into a cycle and buying the same things. After looking through The I Love Trader Joe's Cookbook, I was excited to make my next trip to Trader Joe's. Recipes such as: Quick Kheer using frozen basmati rice, Thai Lentil Simmer using TJ's Thai Green Curry Simmer Sauce, and the delicious No-nonsense gnocchi introduced me to new items at Trader Joe's that I buy regularly and love. There are also some amazing sandwich recipes that are creative, delicious, and so fast to make. The Figgy Bleu is a personal favorite. There are entire sections on salads and casseroles. Anyone who has books by Kris Holechek also knows that there will be a dessert section that is no less amazing than the rest of the book. Cookies loaded with everything, chocolate cherry ice cream cake, and cheesecake to name a few. Every recipe can be made vegan and has very simple directions to convert the recipe. The photos are beautifully done and the directions are clear and concise. This book is a bargain and I am happy to add these great recipes to my cooking repertoire.

As a fellow avowed TJ's-lover, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this cookbook. I have Kris' book The 100 Best Vegan Baking Recipes: Amazing Cookies, Cakes, Muffins, Pies, Brownies and Breads, and it has become my go-to book for all things yummy and sweet. So I knew that Kris' take on TJ's would be delicious.

Even knowing that I was in for a treat, I was still pleasantly surprised by the variety and quality of these recipes. I've already made three--the hearty Wild Rice Porridge, the tangy Orange Creamsicle Cake, and the perfect Quick Calzones. Each one was spot-on.

I'm a vegan who sometimes cheats and eats vegetarian stuff, and my fiancé is a chicken-a-tarian, and both of us are really excited about these recipes. They're clearly spelled out, and many have beautiful full-color photos accompanying them.

I've recommended this book to several sometimes-veg friends, and I think it would be great for folks who are just going vegetarian (or vegan), or who want to introduce a few more veg meals a week into their diets. Kris' recipes are no-fuss, hearty, tasty, and will make you popular with anyone who tries them. Do yourself a favor, and buy a copy now.

This book is a good start if you're new to vegetarian cooking. Most of the ingredients are portioned to coincide with the package sizes that you see on the shelves and TJ has great prices, as always. The problem is, this book features a lot of ingredients that TJ only sells seasonally, so make sure you select 2-3 different recipes before you go grocery shopping so you're not disappointed.

I have bought several vegan and vegetarian cookbooks on Amazon and I've been happy with most of them. In particular, from the "Cooking with Trader Joes" series I have found the "Skinny Dish" (Jennifer Reilly) and Vegetarian (Deanna Gunn) books to be excellent, with dozens of recipes my family loves and high-quality, beautiful images of the dishes.

I returned this item within days of receiving it. Issues I found:

- I looked at every recipe in this cookbook and did not find a single one I was interested in making.
- Most recipes do not have pictures. Those that do have low-res, and poor quality images - sometimes several pages before or after the actual recipe. Still others have images of, for instance, a bowl of blueberries, raw eggplant, or a pair of cinnamon sticks... a completely unhelpful waste of space, when an image of the actual completed recipe could have been placed there!
- The book actually devotes about a dozen of its 171 actual recipe pages to sandwiches. Are you kidding me? Recipes for sandwiches?

For me, a benchmark for a good cookbook is one that has 10-15 USEFUL and creative recipes I'd like to make again and again, plus has nice photos of nearly every completed recipe. With excellent vegan and vegetarian cookbooks on the market that meet these basic standards, I recommend staying away from this one. Very disappointing.

I got it as a gift, but haven't been blown out of the water by any of the recipes, and especially not by the photographs.
There is a vegan variation for all the recipes if they contain eggs/dairy which is nice, but some of the recipes are pretty boring (ex. the quinoa recipe is simply quinoa with vegetable broth instead of water and the soups usually need 2x the amount of spices for my pallet).
I browse through it occasionally for random ideas but usually don't actually follow the recipes.
