Let me put it this way. I had to figure out what to eat for the next week and we were already over budget on food, so I couldn't spend much. I flipped through this book and easily found four recipes that were mostly made up of staples I already had. And most of her recipes are so quick to make there is no excuse not to cook. Even the longer recipes she has alternatives to make them shorter. Chapters are set up by food headings such as Rice; Beans; Vegetables; and Pizzas. She also has ways of sneaking in new vegetables such as kohlrabi and bok choy and turnips without anybody being the wiser (except the cook). An amazing cookbook.

I had been a vegetarian for a couple of years before I found this cookbook and boy, did it change the way I cook! I had been mostly relying on a couple of basic beans and rice type dishes and adapting my meat-based recipes. This book opened up a whole new world of possibilities. I use the recipes in it at least 5 days a week. There are plenty of them from different categories (grains, potatoes, pasta, etc.) so my family doesn't get bored (and I have 2 little children under 6). We all love the food prepared using these recipes. It's also given me some inspiration for coming up with dishes of my own. One of my favorite things about this book is the fact that Ms. Frischner makes suggestions about what to serve with each dish and often variations on the recipe or what to do with leftovers. This is a must have for EVERY kitchen whether you're vegetarian or not!

My mother gave me this book a year ago, when I left for my second year of college, and I didn't use it once. At the beginning of this summer, I promised myself that I would learn how to cook, since I will be cooking for myself at school this year. For the last month and a half, my grandma and I have teamed up every day to make a different, but always very tasty meal from this book. It's totally fun! At the beginning of the weak I check out the recipes I want to try, buy the ingredients, and I'm ready to cook after a day at work. One of the greatest things about these recipes is that the instructions are very thorough, which makes it hard to screw up. I made my first cake from scratch, and it turned out perfectly. Needless to say, I am very happy and am proud to say that I finally have some of the basic, but very necessary, skills of cooking down pat.

I collect cookbooks, and I keep coming back to this one over and over again. I have been amazed with how EVERY recipe I try is easily prepared in less than 30 minutes and turns out delicious. Most of her recipes are easily converted to vegan by leaving out the cheese. I keep buying copies to give to friends, and then they tell me that they have bought copies to give to their friends. I have brought the White Beans and Sage dish to several potlucks and it's been the hit of the party. I hope Ms. Fritschner comes out with another book.

Originally purchased this book to find recipe ideas for my teenage daughter who has adopted a vegetarian lifestyle. The book is easy to read and the recipes are not complicated. While reading it, I felt as if a friend had jotted down the recipes.
I took the book with me on vacation and the relative that I was visiting loved it, so I ended up leaving it for her. Now I will be ordering another for myself and another copy for a gift.
Enjoy!
