Basically, it's a standard vegan baking book. Personally, when I first went vegan-ish, a lot of the vegan books were a little too intimidating at first. This one was not only cheap, easy to store among bulky textbooks, but had such colorful and simple photography that I felt like I was about to eat everything!
I would say this is either for the starter-vegan, or for the much-modern hostess who wants to be able to make the trendiest (and easiest) recipes for her animal loving friends.
Bon Appetit! :)
I will go on to say,that I am not vegan. I am a vegetarian who strives to go all the way one day to veganism, but haven't taken the plunge. I still indulge in regular treats on the odd occassion, so I know exactly what they are supposed to taste like. I will say that every recipe I've tried are every bit as good and often better than their non vegan counterparts. The waffles are one such example, the brownies are another.
The author, who's son has severe allergies to nuts,eggs & dairy developed these recipes originally so her family would not have to go without delicious baked goods in their own lives. I'm so glad she adapted her previous book for vegans; if she hadn't I likely wouldn't have come across it.
It really is a fabulous collection...she even includes a recipe for caramel corn. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.
The ingredients are so easy in this book - I nearly always have every ingredient I need already stocked. I was originally really wary about baking with silken tofu...because it was tofu, but now, thanks to this book, it's one of my favorite things to use and I get so excited when I see it in a recipe because I know the baked good will come out delicious and fluffy and creamy.
I love cookbooks that have lots of pictures and this one does not disappoint! Additionally, I love that the banana bread has a lot of bananas in it (3), the pumpkin bread has real pumpkin in it, the lemon cake has real lemon, etc. and that the binders used in the recipes (in place of eggs) actually bring out the flavors even more! (E.g. orange juice in the pumpkin bread - genius!)
This book is perfect for beginners to baking, beginners to vegan/slightly-healthier baking, bakers looking to expand their recipes or try new recipes of traditional favorites, or anyone looking for delicious, easy-to-make, no-weird-ingredient, real-food recipes.

I chose this because the price was right (free) and it showed chocolate on the cover. I have a friend who swears you can substitute applesauce for butter or Crisco. Read morePublished on December 17, 2013 by L Miller
