I haven’t forgetting about you! I know I’ve been absent but it isn’t because I don’t love you. It’s because my STUPID IPHONE CAMERA HAS BEEN BROKEN! Yes, I do have an old school camera but…it’s all the way over there…in a drawer…
Anyways, so much has happened. There is so much I want to share with you all, including this:
Anyways after this long awaited blog post I will not be bringing you something new and exciting. This is going to be like a recap episode of your favorite show when you were expecting a new episode.
But fear not! I have another excuse for that too! So work has been really crazy lately and I’ve been pretty worn out. Meaning I haven’t had time to cook and also not much of an appetite because *ahem* I’m pregnant.
Anyhoo without further ado! Here are my Top 4 Cookbooks! I was going to do Top 5 but the 5th would have been a throwaway.
#4. Martha Stewart’s MeatlessI know I’ve talked a lot about how all the recipes are really bland and many of the recipes were obviously created with meat. Most of them aren’t even vegan. BUT if you know this and decide to make something knowing you will have to make it better then you will find tons of inspiration. I pick this cookbook up often and find fantastic ideas. Which only leaves one question: Martha why aren’t you calling me?
(Geez, is this photo big enough!?!) This was a gift when I’d just gone vegetarian and it’s a must-have for anyone looking for vegetarian/vegan basics. Since writing this Mark Bittman has become a ‘semi-vegan’ himself and is a food icon/activist. You might be at the point where this is a little below you in terms of skill but it makes a great gift.
Hands down the easiest and most delicious vegan cheeses I’ve ever had and made. Everything I’ve made has been bursting with bright flavour plus Makini Howell is adorable. Buy two: one for yourself and one for the person making you dinner.
Two reasons should be enough to convince you: the man cooked for Oprah and his Teriyaki Tofu over Mashed Yams is the only vegan dish I’ve ever seen my dad eat without reacting like it was dirt. The man is like the Steve Jobs of the vegan world. Seriously everything I’ve made from this book is knock your socks off amazing. Try the Caesar Salad dressing and then the Tomato Bisque. This isn’t something for a vegan beginner but it isn’t rocket science either.
Well! It’s your turn? What do I need to own this very second?
