Author's style: Recipes are detailed and most include exact times for cooking (ex. Add carrot and saute for 2 minutes more), rather than general estimations. The recipes are easy to read and understand.

Allergen/Special diet Notes: Free of top 8 allergens. No sesame. All recipes are vegan and gluten free. Coconut is used but can easily be omitted or substituted. Oats are used, but substitutions are suggested for those who can't tolerate them.

Nutritional Notes: Most recipes call for common, easy to locate ingredients. Kasha is an ingredient in a few recipes and I haven't been able to find it in my area, but it can be ordered online. Agave nectar is included as a sweetener in some of the recipes, but mostly smaller amounts are called for. Granulated sugar is an ingredient in some recipes.
Overall the author strives to keep these recipes healthy while still tasting good.

I have tried many of the delicious recipes in the Welcoming Kitchen cookbook, but my latest experience is a must-share moment! As I am preparing for the 3-party, 2nd birthday celebrations for my twin daughters, I thought I'd make one of the cake recipes from a box mix from the store, as I thought it would be easier. Besides it not being any easier, it was flavorless, and had no substance. If I am going to eat cake, I want it to have chocolate flavor and a bit of a chew to it. Box mix was like eating flavorless sponge. The chocolate birthday cake recipe from Welcoming Kitchen is by far the best chocolate cake I have eaten. It is not only easy to make, but it is crazy delicious. The chocolate flavor is in every bite and it is a denser cake which leaves a person feeling satisfied with their sweet treat. The vanilla cake is also amazing. I made an extra large cake for the big family party for the girls and swirled the two together for a marble cake.

One other major bonus to using the Welcoming Kitchen recipes... my nearly 5 year old son likes to help in the baking (really he just likes to be around to lick the spoon) and he was unable to get in any licks with the box mix due to the raw eggs. With the Welcoming Kitchen recipes, that is never an issue and I get a little extra quality time with my son because he likes to help me bake/lick the spoon.

I am very disappointed with this book, especially after seeing all the high ratings. This isn't the first time that this has happened on Amazon, a product/book with really high ratings and then the product turns out to be disappointing in the end.

Here's what I didn't like:

1) Recipes are very basic and lacking in flavor. I made the Quinoa and Beans recipe last night and it was awful, no flavor, just plain gross. I have also tried the Gnocchi recipe and it was equally terrible. The corn muffins, also not palatable. Now I'm sure by now you may be thinking that I might not be able to cook, but I while I am not a certified chef, I have been cooking great food for my family for over 20 years.

2) There are no pictures in the cookbook.

3) Many of the recipes are very basic, and can barely even qualify as a "recipe", a lot of page-filler material if you ask me. Examples: Old Fashioned Mashed Potatoes which consists of potatoes, rice milk, salt, and olive oil. Oven-Baked Wedge Fries, which consist of potatoes, olive oil, and salt. And the list of ridiculously simple so-called recipes goes on.

4) Most of the recipes seriously lack creativity, I feel like the book was put together to make money and lacks the spirit of a truly passionate cook.

A better cookbook that I would recommend: Great Gluten-Free Vegan Eats: Cut Out the Gluten and Enjoy an Even Healthier Vegan Diet with Recipes for Fabulous, Allergy-Free Fare. Every single recipe that I have tried in that book is DELICIOUS, and I've tried 12 so far.

This book has easy to follow, delicious recipes for my family - not vegan - as well as for my guests. I had a dinner party with a friend who has food allergies, dairy, nuts, soy and wheat. I made the olivata, and dill dip for appetizer, the chili for the entree and the chocolate cake for dessert. My entire party loved the dinner and asked for the recipes. They all are buying the book.
