Although they were "red meat" vegetarians earlier, Susan Daffron and James Byrd have both been completely vegan since 1994. Susan says, "Over the years, we puzzled over complex recipes that would take us all day to make. And tried seemingly endless bland, boring recipes that taste like dirt. We've also made some truly awful concoctions all by ourselves. (Like they say, you learn from your mistakes!) This book is the result of many years of trial and error. Now, even our meat-eating friends come back to the table for seconds and thirds!"
"Neither of us is a gourmet chef or even worked in a restaurant, so we don't have professional cooking skills. That means it takes us just as long to chop up veggies as it does you. We stick to the real-world basics, like using a food processor or blender, chopping vegetables, and cooking using ordinary cookware. None of the recipes have complex steps or require you to monitor the dish every second. The bottom line is you don't need to be a master of fancy techniques to cook and eat these delicious dishes. In fact, you don't have to be able to do anything beyond kitchen basics: opening cans and packages, chopping and slicing, dicing and mixing, cooking in a skillet, throwing things in a pot, putting something in the oven, and setting a timer."
"Vegan Success includes only our most tried and true, select recipes that actually work. These recipes don't require 17 different steps and two days of cooking. They are uncomplicated, unpretentious, and are easy enough for every day."
