From Library Journal
The original Laurel's Kitchen, now 10 years old, demonstrated that vegetarian food can be nutritionally sound and need not be dreary. It has been enormously influential and remains so, even now when vegetarian and whole foods cooking has joined the mainstream. For this sequel, almost every recipe has been revised to lower fat content or enhance nutrition, and 150 new recipes have been added, along with a long final section on nutrition that is all new. As in the original volume, recipes are excellent. This new version deserves to be as popular as its predecessor. RD

This is the third copy I've purchased. I wore my first one out and this one was for a gift particularly for the kale-potato soup recipe. In a way it is a charming readable storybook packed with recpies. I don't think she intended it that way, it's just her personality.
Not all the recipes are that fouled up, but the instructions are never on the same page as the ingredients. Some are a couple of pages later. Makes for a lot of flipping back and forth. Also, as another reviewer mentioned, you cannot click on an item in the index to go to the recipe. You have to hunt for it.
I returned my Kindle copy and will stick to my paperback copy! Which I, may say, is worthy of 5 stars.
There are so many other great vegetarian cookbooks out now that these seem slightly uninspired by comparison. I have made several of the recipes, and despite following them to the letter, each and every one seemed kind of bland. I had forgotten about that factor, or I guess I didn't mind it at the time. I have zippier versions of many of the recipes in other cookbooks, but for some people, the blandness and simplicity could be a plus. I think this is a good basic handbook for someone new to vegetarian cooking who is not looking for anything spicy or exotic. The book is enjoyable and informational to read.
There is an active chapter index, but even that requires going to the chapter, then paging through looking for the recipe you want, one page at a time. If you remember which chapter your recipe is in.
Please, please add an active recipe index to the ebook. Then it will be perfect.
