Whether you like your junk food sweet or savory, chocolaty or cheesy, Lane (can I call you Lane?) has got you covered. The 225 recipes in this collection are divided into ten categories: breakfast foods; deli favorites (i.e., sandwiches, wraps, burgers, and sliders); comfort-meets-takeout foods (entrees); crusts and carbs (pizzas and breads); festive grub (party foods!); dips, hummus, and sauces (including sundae toppings!); savory treats; cakes; candies and cookies; and grab `n' go sweets (brownies and bars). As you can see, the recipes are roughly divided between meal-type items (entrees, main courses) and snacks/desserts.
The husband and I tried out about twenty recipes before I sat down to write this review; and, while I don't usually review cookbooks, this is easily the largest number of recipes I've sampled for a cookbook review, like, ever. (I just couldn't stop myself; everything looks so good!) Possibly it's the most recipes I've made from a single cookbook, period. Though I own a ridiculous number of them, I don't use cookbooks with much frequency; more often I cook from memory or pull recipes off the internet. But VEGAN JUNK FOOD? Most definitely joining my repertoire!
The book's obvious strength, of course, is the food: oodles and oodles of junk food! Pizza. Pasta. Tacos. Pot pies. Casseroles. Cupcakes, pies, and brownies.Read more ›
Even though my kids and wife has never been sick since then, I on the other hand have been (mostly due to bacon!... Man! I love Bacon)
I dont cook, not even rice! All I know to do is boil eggs. So, in my house I have to be fed. That also leaves me as a third world citizen where I don't have a vote in what's cooking or what's for dinner.
Last two years, for suckers's day... I mean father's day, I got one stinking piece of filet mignon barbequed outside (wife refused to cook it inside.) I also notice her feeling a disconfort of nauseas while cooking my dead animal on the grill.
THIS BOOK brought a new perspective into my whole experience of Vegan food. The book has allowed my wife to cook for us (remember I said I dont know how to cook) wonderful strips of some vegetable in the shape AND TASTE of BACON!! It was delicious. Then she cooked several other of the receipes in there, and they were AMAZING. They looked and TASTED like my favorite junkfood, but guess what?? they were healthy and good for me... go figure!
Ever since I got this book, I started checking for glitches in the matrix. I said to myself... "this... looks like bacon, taste like bacon smell like bacon and feels like bacon; but I know it is just a figment of my imagination..." So, I asked my lovely wife to just said to me "Honey I cooked some 'original' bacon for you"... Ahhh Ignorance is Indeed Bliss!!
Highly recommend this product
Liked it so much I purchased it for family and friends too. They have reported back that thy just love it. No need to go to culinary school or specialty stores to make the recipes.
