Ok, Amy, I got this book cuz it was $3 on Amazon - but I think it sucks. There wasn't one recipes I wanted to make. Have you made anything? Any recommendations? Cuz I'm about to give it away.
I love Bryanna and I have all her books.
The (Almost) No Fat Cookbook has a lot of good staple recipes which I find quite handy. The Fat-Free Sausage and variations are extremely useful to me because the ready-made stuff from the store is usually too expensive to buy often. I also made the Tofu Milk a lot when my kids were growing up.
The Bran Muffins, Low-Fat American Potato Salad, and Shepherd's Pie are the best I've ever had and the only recipes I use for those dishes. The Basic Pancakes , Drop Biscuits, and Featherlight Dumplings are great too, and very quick and easy to make. I also recommend the Tamale Pie, Enchilada Casserole, Old-Fashioned Vegetable Stew , and Scalloped Potatoes.
For dessert, Pumpkin Pie is my go-to pie for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I also love the Tofu Cheezecake Pie, Pineapple Sherbet, and Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding. The Caramel Cream Pudding is a lovely company dessert.
I think it is important to remember that this book is 16 years old and it was written for a specific audience. That said, I have made many delicious meals from this book, and I continue to use it and love it to this day. :-)
This is one of the vegan cookbooks at my local library. It's one of my favorites. It's been a while, so I can't remember which recipes I've made from it, though. It has a recipe kusherie, which is rice & lentil dish with a garlic tomato sauce and browned onions. I add more lentils than is traditional because I think rice is a waste of eating, but the garlic sauce and browned onions are really good.
This was my first veg cookbook and although I have aquired a few more, it is still my favorite and it shows, lots of personal notes, tape, bookmarks, food slops and more tape.
There a only a few recipes I have not tried and only one that i have not liked. Most of the the recipes are marked .."The gravy", "The biscuits"...so my family knows this is the recipe they are accustom to. Great book, IMHO.
