Review

Efficiency is the key word linking recipes in Vegan Success. -- VegNews Magazine, January/February 2007

Vegan Success is written in a casual, friendly manner as if your neighbor dropped in to share some cooking tips. -- Vegetarian Journal, October 2007

Vegan Success offers up some great dishes you can pull together at the last minute. -- VegBlog Triple Cookbook Review October 2007

From the Publisher

Vegan Success is a book by vegans for vegans. The authors are vegan and know what it's like to stare into the refrigerator at a pile of veggies and wonder what's for dinner.

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."


More About the Author

Susan Daffron is the author of the Alpine Grove Romantic Comedies, a series of novels that feature residents of the small town of Alpine Grove and their various quirky dogs and cats. She is also an award-winning author of many nonfiction books, including several about pets and animal rescue. She lives in a small town in northern Idaho and shares her life with her husband, two dogs and a cat--the last three, all "rescues."

When she's not writing novels, Susan works as the president of Logical Expressions, Inc., a publishing company based in Sandpoint, Idaho. You can read more about her at her website SusanDaffron.com.

Susan was the president and founder of the National Association of Pet Rescue Professionals and also was the president of the Small Publishers Artists and Writers Network.

I'm not completely a vegan eater, but have been gradually cleaning up my eating over the past few years and really like having more fresh, healthy food in my diet. The one problem I'd had was that so many of the vegetarian and vegan recipes did take a long time to prepare. And while I'm an excellent cook, these days I have other things I want to put my attention on - like playing with my grandson and writing a book. So it was with complete utter delight that I received "Vegan Success" and started to use it. The crowning joy was when my husband, who told me when we got married that he didn't like and didn't eat vegetables, asked for seconds and sometimes even thirds. I think the success is that Susan and her partner are busy people too - and so they've really tested these recipes under real-life conditions. Anyway, I love being able to get genuinely healthy meals that my husband enjoys in a quick hurry. I'd recommend this book whether you love to cook or not - it's that straightforward.

Over the past few years my weight and blood pressure have been creeping upward. After trying several recipes in Vegan Success over a two week period, my blood pressure was so low that I was dizzy and had to be seen by my doctor. My doctor cut my prescription medicine in half and I have been able to maintain a healthy blood pressure with less medication.

My favorite meal is the Stella Blues breakfast on Page 179. This meal is satisfying without being heavy. It is far more beneficial to my health than the two eggs I was typically eating for breakfast. I have also noticed that I have been losing some weight. I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to try some healthier food alternatives. You do not have to eat Vegan at every meal to notice a healthier and lighter difference in your life.

Like everyone else my life is busy. Although I enjoy cooking (when I have time) and love to eat, I do not want to spend hours in the kitchen everyday making fancy meals. I have always been a very clean, uncomplicated eater and have now been vegan for nearly 2 years. I love that the recipes in Vegan Success are simple, quick and focus entirely on real food -- rather than junky, fake meat look-alikes. It takes the mystery out of being vegan and shows that anyone can eat healthy, vibrant, satisfying food and not eat meat, cheese or eggs, etc. This is a fabulous cookbook for people who are new to vegan cooking as well as for those of us who have been doing it for awhile. Super delicious!

First of all, let me say that I am not a vegan. We make every effort to only eat organic, healthy foods and either grow most of what we eat, or purchase our food that is grown as close to home as possible. I am always looking for alternative ways to create flavorful, healthy food and rarely have the time to utilize the slow food cooking that it takes for most healthy meals. I have found this cookbook 'Vegan Success' to be useful and am delighted to find vegan alternatives that are delicious and simple to make. You don't have to be a vegan to appreciate these recipes! Now, when we have vegan friends over for dinner I don't have to scratch my head over what to feed them. Definately an investment in better health! Thanks to the author for taking the time to share her tried and true recipes.

My favorite thing about this cookbook is the introductory sections, especially the "faking it" section, which provides vegan substitutions for dairy ingredients found in many mainstream recipes. Knowing the vegan substitution for any dairy ingredient made veganism seem much less intimidating to me. Naturally, there are also well over a hundred recipes for sauces, soups, breads, desserts, and a wide variety of entrees. The Thai Peanut Sauce is my personal favorite - just like what you'd get at a Thai restaurant, but much cheaper (of course) and you don't have to wonder whether it's made with "fish sauce."
