I have to say, this woman is a friggen GENIUS!!!

I really enjoyed just reading this cookbook. The author is very witty and her book was definitely not a dry, boring read. She has little intros to each recipe that alone are worth the cost of the book.

But it's her thinking outside of the box that impressed me the most. She talks about how she came up with ideas for certain recipes as well as things she changed from other recipes. She really makes my brain go into overdrive when I think about food. Her recipes sparked my imagination and made me start to be more creative with my cooking.

This is seriously a five star book. I am extremely happy with it and I will definitely be drawing ideas from it for years to come. I'm not a vegetarian, but I will wholeheartedly recommend this book to vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.

Hmm, so I really like the inventiveness of these recipes, and they're definitely living up to the title of "good food for bad vegans." Problem is I was hoping these recipes would be a tad bit more practical. A lot of them I'd only want to make for special occasions like Thanksgiving or parties where I need an awesomely impressive dessert or whatever, but a lot of that could be I generally try to limit how much "bad" foods I eat.

I was actually pretty hesitant to go through and pre-order this cookbook, because it was around the time I started a quest to lose weight and get healthy, but I was hoping there'd still be some good treats to indulge in once in a while, and there definitely is. There are even some relatively healthy recipes that are so delicious (especially "BBQ Salad" which I tried the other day).

But, overall there are only a few recipes I wanted to rush to make on my first look through the book, and those all have difficult to grab a hold of ingredients or gear. For example, cacao nibs in the Candy Bar Smoothie, or a canoe pan for the "Fruit punch winkies" (she does give an alternative to a canoe pan that you can supposedly diy, but it doesn't quite make sense and I worry it wouldn't work too well).

Also, the jackfruit might be difficult for many to get, but I was able to get it online and tried the "Cannibal Corpse Crock-pot" pretty quickly.

I love the names for the foods, most are very funny/creative. I also love the illustrations and that the desserts come first in the book. There are plenty of pictures (usually cookbooks don't have enough pictures much to my chagrin) and the presentation is quite great.

I made the vegan granola bars to take to a work thing, clearly labeled them as vegan (hoping that would result in leftovers for me to take home) and not only did none of these meat-and-preservative addicted fools complain, they devoured all of them, THANKED ME (that never ever happens), and a week later, the one who always mocks my lunches if he sees anything green and/or leafy, actually asked when I'd make more. Done, boom, pleasing the ungrateful AND getting good food in them? Totally worth the price of the book.

I really love this book - and if you are a medium to skilled Vegan home chef the recipes here are interesting, creative and fun. (I had never in my life used Jackfruit - and don't panic it comes in cans in most good grocery stores - so that was fun new ingredient to try).
But I feel as if this should also get a cautionary warning: This is NOT a cookbook for a brand new chef or to pick up after a long day when you just want to eat something vegan, healthy and easy. (For that I'd recommend anything in the "Happy Herbivore" series of "Vegan with a Vengeance"
The challenge for the novice Vegan is that, while MS Slater is an excellent chef and really knows her stuff - she is not a corner-cutter and many of her recipes involve complex (and sometimes needless) steps. Her breakfast "Honky Tonk French Toast" recipe calls for baking a loaf of banana bread first (Yikes!); a snack recipe for a vegan pig in a blanket ("Pretzel Dogs of the Dead") has you making your own pretzel dough that has to rise in four steps that take over an hour and her "You Don't Know Jack Hash" involves multiple steps one of which involves sauteing a single ingredient for ten minutes THEN moving it to cook for over an hour in a slow cooker and THEN putting it in the fridge overnight. (This is recipe is actually really worth it - but I admit I skipped the slow cooker part and just cooked it very slowly in a skillet over low heat).
On the plus side her recipes are worth the extra steps and some of her more eccentric combos are really quite tasty (Her French fry tacos are far more delicious than they sound) and an experienced chef will know when to cut some of the needless steps she requires.

What a refreshing new vegan cookbook! I preordered this book last year when I first heard about it and had huge expectations for something refreshingly new, and I'm happy to say that Natalie delivers! I love her creative and relaxed approach to vegan cooking, and that not only does she encourage the reader to experiment, she gives great tips on things to try (including a handy reference for how to modify other non-vegan recipes to make them vegan, and how to modify her recipes with ingredients that you might prefer). This book includes great dishes to serve guests, simple dishes to whip together for yourself and your family, killer desserts, lots of fun recipes that make vegan fare more palatable for kids too, and mouth-watering photos of every recipe. I love this book!
