5.0 out of 5 stars Creative yet simple!! September 2, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the baking book I have been waiting for! I own so many vegan books, and I am an avid baker, and this book has great potential to be my new favorite ! I have already bookmarked half the book for 'to try recipes'!! Even my non-vegan friend read through my copy and was oohing and ahhing at every recipe

This has a fantastic variety of recipes: muffins, cookies, bars, cakes, pastries, yeasted breads etc. It even has a section for easy bake ovens for kids!! Too cool. Although I don't own an easy bake oven, I want one now just to try these super cute recipes

To me, this book is a perfect balance of creativity and simplicity. Meaning the recipes are simple to prepare, ingredients are not too wacky at all, yet the recipes are still exciting and they have cute perky names! :D Flavor combinations are definitely interesting

I have already tried 3 recipes after getting the book yesterday! Everything turned out great!

Most recipes are based on soy yogurt (at least the cakey/quick bread recipes).

I really like this book and I plan to try almost everything!! I can't wait!

Only critique is that some pictures here and there would be nice!

5.0 out of 5 stars Vegan Baking Made Easy & Delicious September 10, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been a big fan of Kris' ever since she released her fantastic book, Damn Tasty Vegan, so it's a pleasure to see her back with even more delicious treats in this fun book!
There is a strong dislike among part of the vegan community for baked goods that use egg replacer powder instead of, well, eggs, so you'll be happy to see that Kris uses none of the stuff in here.
If I had to pick one favorite from this book, I'd have to go for the Nuts For Carob Bars. Now I know what some of you might be thinking, carob = yuck, but wait: this is actually the recipe that turned my strong dislike for the so-not-chocolatey powder into pure and utter love.
Parents of little ones (or people who appreciate smaller treats) will adore the section in which bite-sized recipes with tiny yields are offered. With choices such as Lil' Yellow Cake, Lil' Chocolate Cake, Lil' Peanut butter Drops, and Lil' Thumbprints, turn your kids into bakers-to-be by letting them tap into their creative side while having fun and spending time with you! A brilliant idea I haven't seen in any other vegan cookbook yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars finally December 14, 2009
By J. Veit
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
oh dear god, chocolate chip cookies that actually taste like CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES. it's been so long. i've been trying - and abandoning - vegan baking recipes for three years; they were almost all lousy. now i've had this cookbook for one week and i've already made excellent, carnivore-fooling chocolate chip cookies (twice), sugar cookies, and brownies. my dairy- and egg-allergic 4-year-old is thrilled, and so am i. i also love the info on what happens after the oven, such as how to cool and store. why doesn't every cookbook have this? thank you, thank you, thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recipes that work September 15, 2009
I live at high altitude so baking has always been a challenge but
I've been really happy with the results from this book.
So far I've made the gingerbread, raspberry lime muffins and garlic rolls.
Everything has turned out great, especially the rolls - breads don't always work for me.
There is a nice selection of recipes and I'm looking forward to trying the
Cherry clafoutis, boston cream pie, strawberry lemonade cheesepie, kahlua cake ...
Kris's instructions are clear and easy to follow and it's handy that all the recipes have a prep time and difficulty rating.
If you need to see pictures you can go to Kris's blog or flickr. nom, nom, nom, nom

2.0 out of 5 stars There are better recipes out there October 19, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book to give some variety to my repertoire of allergy-friendly baked goods for my son with dairy, egg and nut/peanut allergies. So far, I'm not really impressed. The recipes SOUND good, with tasty-sounding names and nice descriptions, but the two recipes I've made so far have been less than great. (Just FYI, I've baked professionally, so it's not that I'm a crappy baker who can't follow directions.)

I had high hopes for the Lime Coconut Bars, since regular lemon bars use eggs and there's nothing I could easily use to make my own substitute for him. Well... the crust, even though baked for the proper amount of time/browning came out SO hard, it was even hard to cut. Then the filling, again cooked for the proper amount of time and to the appropriate thickness, never set up that well in the fridge. Perhaps if you're looking for a cookie that is cold (it has to be stored in the fridge) and topped with an unappetizing-looking, pale green-flecked pudding, you'd be happy...but that's not what most people are looking for IMO. As a side note, the flavors weren't bad, but the appearance, texture and temperature made this a flop. (I may use some of the techniques for making him some pudding, though.) :)

On to the Peary Berry Muffins: again, high hopes. This recipe wasn't so bad, but the muffins never baked through even though I baked them until they had gotten as brown as possible, probably because of an excess of moisture from the pears (I used quite hard Anjou pears, so they weren't overly juicy, either). I sliced the muffins in half and toasted them, and the flavors were good enough to make them worth eating. A little Earth Balance margarine and it made a tasty breakfast.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing...
Most every recipe calls for MARGARINE, which I find very disappointing. There is nothing new or innovative here - several other books I'd read or buy over this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars just ok
This book uses a lot more dairy than I care to use. I'll probably make some adjustments when I do bake from it. There is definitely good information in the beginning of the book.

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.
