The Vegetarian Flavor Bible Review & Giveaway

Around the same time Mauro and I were becoming vegan, I was also in the midst of becoming a foodie. We had started eating more local foods, eating seasonally thanks to our CSA shares and I was interested in becoming a better cook and baker. I would hit up my local library on a weekly basis in search of the best vegan cookbooks. On one of my weekly trips I stumbled upon The Flavor Bible by Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg. It’s a thick and heavy reference book on how to pair... Read More

Plant Power Cookbook by Nava Atlas – Review

I’m a big fan of Nava Atlas’ cookbooks. I had a few in my bookcase already and love how straight-forward and easy to make her recipes are.

Vegan Tacos Cookbook Review

One of my favorite go-to and easy meals is tacos. I always keep some corn tortillas in the freezer for those nights when I really don’t want to think about making a big meal. I generally use a combination of leftovers and other items in my fridge. I also prefer corn tortillas over wheat, because they are more flavorful authentic. Now, Jason Wyrick’s Vegan Tacos* cookbook has helped me take tacos to a whole new level. This book offers truly authentic and inspired recipes... Read More
