Amazon needs to add a few more stars so people can rate this book, and these incredible authors/chefs, appropriately. The pictures are gorgeous, the recipes are easy to follow, and the style and layout make this book a perfect gift for anyone who has ever eaten a meal and plans to eat one again, vegan or non. This libro was actually given to me as a gift by a non-vegan friend who thought that I, as a recent vegan convert, might enjoy. Great call -- Spork-Fed makes my transition to veganhood so much more fun and delicious. If not for the Spork Sisters, I might be tempted to swing through a drive-through or nibble a few chicken fingers every so often -- but the recipes in this book blow anything from a greasy fast-food restaurant out of the water. The grub is satisfying, succulent, and doesn't weigh you down or make you groan like a bloated toad, even after consuming mass quantities like a coneheaded madman. There's a lot in this book, and I'm anxiously awaiting the sequel.

I wanted to like this book so very much but I just can't give it a good review and I am very surprised at the great reviews. Teh good first: It looks great. Beautiful pictures. It's appealing and very fun. The recipe ideas are also great, the problem is just that they either don't turn out all that well (for example, the deserts as someone mentioned in a review by someone else,the Parfait which ended up being a runny mess and refrigerating it for hours didn't help much> I want to add that I use whipped coconut milk quite a bit). Another problem I found is that the food is underwhelming, for example the wings. They are a lot of work and while the sauce is really very good, the seitan the way they make it is bland and so are the wings, despite the good sauce. There are other wings recipes that are much faster and much better. The same result I got with the grilled aspargus. The sauce is quite pricy as it asks for a lot of pine nuts and the result is nothing more than so, so. Lastly, I'm also not a fan of things like egg replacer which are used throughout. So sorry about the bad review but this book really is disappointing.

I ordered this book after watching some videos on the Spork Sisters Website. I do like their approach to cooking, but many of these recipes are high in fat and salt. It is also inconvenient that the book does not have nutrition information for the recipes. Today I made the tempeh fish which called for 3 cups of oil for frying. I used one and it was plenty! Also I had so much batter left, which went to waste. I am not sure the measurements were accurate. I made the chili potatoes and the sauce was so scant I could have easily doubled the recipe for the sauce, and I only used 2 cups of potatoes! So some of the recipes could have used more fine tuning before publishing.

I am a vegan, but I struggle with my weight. Just because vegans do not eat dairy or meat does not mean that they should consume large amounts of fat in the forms of oil or buttery substitutes. When I read through these recipes I can immediately see easy ways to cut the calories and fat in most of them without cutting flavor. I am just not sure why the sisters were not more conscious of the high fat and salt in the recipes. Also, the book is too small in size. It was hard to keep open on the counter and I kept having to pick it up and look at the ingredients and directions as the print is small. In conclusion, it is a creative, vibrant vegan cookbook, just be prepared to modify recipes to lower fat, cholesterol, and sodium if you are health conscious. I much prefer Kris Carr's recipes or Trader Joe's Skinny Dish Cookbook to this one.

After taking a bayou cooking class with Heather and Jenny, I decided I was interested in learning more about vegan cooking. What I've found after trying a few of the recipes from the book is that like their classes, the recipes are easy, fun and turn out just as I would hope. Many of the ingredients were new to me but I would not be intimidated! I'll be looking to try substituting them in some of my mainstay recipes, too. The prep is not overwhelming either which means I wasn't slaving away making these recipes but more enjoying the entire process.

A great feature of the book is how they lay out menus in the beginning. Something so simple but brilliant to me. I've never seen it in any other cookbook and hope others take a page and copy it.

My favorite recipes so far: creamy pistachio pesto over brown rice, chive & cheddar skillet omelet and crispy brown rice cakes. My next adventure will be the mac & cheese which I hear is the best ever!

This is a must-have for foodies everywhere. If my meat & potatoes-loving dad can love this food, it will win over anyone. The only thing better would be the sisters in my kitchen with me, sipping a glass of wine.

I can't get the desserts to turn out well. I've made lots of baked goods by other vegan chefs, but haven't used Ener-G egg replacer before - which is in many of their baked goods recipes, and I think this may be the downfall of Spork Fed's desserts. I've made the vanilla birthday cake, the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies, and the Pumpkin Cheesecake with a Gingersnap Crust from this book.

The birthday cake had a very weird texture to it, not cake-like at all, although the taste was good. I tried on 2 separate occasions to make the cookies, and both times they failed miserably. When baking them in the oven, they spread apart into a gooey mess. Same result both times, and I've used my oven to make countless other baked goods without fail, so I know it's not the oven.

That being said, the Pumpkin Cheesecake turned out awesome, and tasted awesome. Even won over a tried and true meat eater. I also have made the Fettuccine Alfredo, which is super delish. The Caesar dressing is phenomenal - tastes like the most authentic Caesar dressing ever (better than my Mom's, who follows the Joy of Cooking's recipe for Caesar). Also made the Strawberry Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast, which tasted really great but was a bit messy.

I love the layout of the book, pics for almost every recipe, and the little blips of information are very entertaining.
