Having said that, my copy of Vegetarian Classics is totally marked up with my adjustments to her recipes. You'll notice that Lemlin is terrified of spicing it up, and she occasionally over-salts and over-butter/heavy whipping cream some of her dishes. Through trial and error, I've "improved" some of her dishes to make them lighter and spicier. I'm guessing these recipes are made for family cooks who have to satisfy their brood, so Lemlin's proportions tend to be more "family conservative" (more heavy whipping cream, fewer hot peppers).
Still, I would highly recommend this book for the lazy or beginning cook who wants to put together that will impress their friends, but isn't interested in enrolling in Le Cordon Bleu. Lemlin's instructions are easy to follow and don't automatically assume you know how to boil potatoes or prepare tofu. (I didn't). Once you grow more comfortable with your favorite recipes, you might find yourself making adjustments here and there, but it's all good. I give credit to Jeanne Lemlin for helping me get over my fear of the kitchen.
