My Favorite Cookbooks


Okay, I know I should be preparing for my upcoming BIG event (see previous post) but I needed a little break. I came across Angry Chicken’s post of her favorite vegetarian cookbook and decided that I had to share mine (I’ve been meaning to do this anyway). It’ll only take a few minutes right?

My mom found this one to help me feed my kiddos when they visit her. It’s an awesome book with very easy kid pleasing recipes. It has a vegan option for most of the recipes in this book. It also has the BEST banana muffin recipe.

I’ve posted about this book before here. It has an amazing Pad Thai recipe that I love. There are very many other quick and easy recipes that I use often.

Given to me by my lovely sister Jenny, this book has an amazing array of delicious vegan fare. My favorite part of this book right now is the New World Pizza section. A creative collection of cheeseless and meatless pizzas. Very Yummy. Great soup section too!!

Although I am not the best at following recipes exactly, these books do inspire me to try different things and come up with my own variations of meals that my family love. And even if you are not vegetarian or vegan, these books, and ones similar to these offer some different, delicious and healthy options.

    oh these are great! can’t wait to check them out from the library-especially the kids one-thank you!!

  2. at least you said it…you should be preparing, but it is good to hear from you too! I think of you often when I am cooking…cause I just don’t know how I would live with out meat. But I could, but I would have to have butter, and sour cream if I were to live off of potatoes.

    Anyway, I was thinking of “calling” you the other night….there was a special on spinach at the store. So I steamed some and enjoyed it with BUTTER and a drizzling of balsamic vinegar. But I didn’t know if you had any interesting ideas(maybe involving coconut milk?) for what to do with spinach? Any tried and true concoctions that just make you want to stuff yourself like popeye!

    hope all is going well!

    Thanks for posting the menus and cookbook ideas. We are new to a vegetarian lifestyle and I’m glad to see how you do it with young kids. I’ve already tried several of your meal ideas and can’t wait to try more. Thanks for the inspiration!
