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!
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.
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
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.Read more ›
