It's a pretty book to flip through. I'll try a few cheaper recipes and see how they are before I donate it. Maybe the recipes weren't tested thoroughly? I did find errors "kgs" instead of grams, thankfully a ridiculous amount so I knew it was wrong!! The author seems really nice so I feel bad, but the ingredients are way too pricey for recipes not to be foolproof.
In keeping with the book's subtitle, the recipes are organized by season. (She actually divides them up into five seasons, splitting summer into early and late.) At the beginning of each main section, there is a small Table of Contents that shows the recipes for that season -- broken down by Mornings, Small Measures, Mains, and Sweets. I only wish that a larger Table of Contents had been provided at the front of the book since I've found that it's harder for me to locate recipes -- and the index for this book is a bit briefer than I'd like -- when they're not all laid out up front in the main TOC.
Some standout features of this book are:
* Gorgeous full-color and full-page photos of every single recipe
* High-quality hardback binding that lays flat when you place the cookbook on the counter or prop it up; the hardback binding probably brought up the cost of this book, but it gives it an art-book-quality feel
* All of the recipes are vegetarian, and I'd say that well over 90% are vegan; the non-vegan ingredients used are eggs, cheese, and bee pollen; coconut oil can be subbed for ghee (butter) in many of the recipes, too
* Many are also gluten-free
* Each recipe also contains a symbol that lets you know at a glance if it's vegan, gluten-free, requires loads of advanced planning, or requires eight hours or more to set
* As mentioned in my review title, the recipes use easy-to-find ingredients
* It includes the recipe for her Life-Changing Loaf of Bread (LCLOB)
Also, I noticed on Sarah's blog today that she listed two misprints to be mindful of: "I would like to take this time to acknowledge the couple of misprints in the book. During the editing process the following mistakes were made: on page 21, the ghee recipe is labeled vegan. On page 241-242 buckwheat and spelt switched places so that buckwheat is in the gluten-containing section of the grains chapter, while spelt is in the gluten-free section."
Since I was off work today, I already made two of the recipes, the Raspberry Macadamia Thumbprint Cookies and Pecan Crunch (kind of like a granola). (I always love it when a new cookbook arrives and I already have some ingredients on hand to try out a few things!) Both recipes came together quickly and easily, and were delicious! Tonight I'll be making the Dark Chocolate Cherry Overnight Oats for breakfast tomorrow.
I can already tell that this book will be a favorite of mine and will get good use! If you're looking for healthy, plant-based recipes, I'd highly recommend this book!
This cookbook has a fair number of recipes that look good, but in practice too many of them don't turn out (for example, the breakfast bars tasted strange and didn't hold together--there are a lot of other "baking with beans" recipes online that are much better). Furthermore, there are just a touch too many "out there" and "trendy" ingredients for me. While I appreciate learning about new ingredients in cookbooks, the constant use of these non-traditional ingredients seemed a bit contrived to me in efforts to make the book sexier. So keep in mind that unless you are very into gourmet health food or have large disposable income, some recipes will need to be modified.
Overall, decent cookbook if you are willing to commit to some expensive ingredients, but absolutely beautiful execution. Many decent recipes but probably not a cookbook you will >50% of the recipes.
