Disappointing

The first problem I have with this book is that the 140 recipes are really 1/4 recipes and 3/4 simple variations--but each variation is rewritten as a new recipe. Like another reviewer, I found problems with the recipes. For instance, the chocolate chip cookie recipe lists 8 ingredients, but only 5 are mentioned in the instructions. I don't want to have to edit, proofread, correct & go by the seat of my pants when using a cookbook. I got rid of it before getting any more frustrated.

Awesome, but follow your gut

I've tried about 4 recipes from this book having been tempted by the titles and have had success with 3 of the 4. The gingerbread cake was sadly disappointing, but everything else I tried gets rave reviews. Note of caution: I made 'Richer than fort knox cake' this weekend for a birthday and it was a huge hit. BUT, only because I recognized an error in the recipe (1 1/4 Cups of baking soda!). I adjusted it to 1 1/4 Tablespoons and it worked out fine. Just watch the recipes is all I'm saying.

Call me a sinner, but I can't stop eating these desserts.

To begin: I love this book. Love, love, love. I do have one complaint, though. With 140 recipes, it's going to take me forever to try them all! Especially since I just want to keep making my favorites over and over again. Anyway, I could gush for hours about how great the recipes themselves are. [The Richer Than Fort Knox Cake was a huge hit at my husband's workplace. Everyone was shocked that 1) it wasn't from a bakery, and 2) it was 100% vegan. And I always love showing people that you don't deprive yourself of good things by making vegan choices.] But before I get carried away, I'd like to point how how much I love the organization of the book. Each recipe is divided into simple steps, and recipes are subdivided into sections--like the cake, the frosting, the garnish, etc. Also, Ms. Dieterly includes serving info, prep and baking time, and nutritional information, and also notes whether the recipe freezes well. And for those with wheat allergies, all of the wheat-free recipes are specifically marked as such. She has recipes for the following dessert categories: cookies and brownies; cakes and quick breads; Boston cream pies; pies and tarts; cheesecakes; puddings; donuts and candy; beverages and smoothies; and frostings, toppings, and crusts. Sadly, there are no vegan ice cream recipes. But I'll be so busy eating brownies and cheesecakes and donuts, I won't have time for ice cream anyway! The ingredients she uses should be familiar to most vegan cooks, and I don't have any trouble finding them. However, if you're new to vegan baking or live in an area where it's difficult to find, for example, silken tofu, then the author provides an introduction to the vegan ingredients you'll need, as well as a list of mail-order companies from which you can purchase the necessary ingredients. And if you're still searching, a quick Google search can reveal numerous places on-line to purchase vegan foodstuffs. Finally, I'd just like to comment on the writing style. I really enjoy reading the author's recipe descriptions and other comments. She's clear and informative, but also sounds like a friend who's hanging out in your kitchen while you're baking. All in all, this is a great cookbook. Buy it and amaze your friends with your delicious--and compassionate--desserts.

Excellent, easy-to-use cookbook, vegan or not!

For me, making desserts has been the biggest vegan challenge. Every dessert I have made from this book has been 1) easy and 2) good. The ingredients are standard, and the directions are simple and clear. The desserts taste and look like their non-vegan counterparts. Also, there is a wide variety of dessert types.I highly recommend this book!

Must Have Vegan Book

Sinfully Vegan is a truly awesome book. The chocolate frosting is to die for and the yellow gold cake is amazing and moist. Tasted just like the yellow cakes I used to love. I recommend this book highly for every vegan/vegetarian interested in amazing treats. I must have spent hours simply reading the recipes drooling at the mouth. I honestly cannot decide which one to make next, they all sound so scrumptious. I have over 20 vegan/vegetarian cookbooks and this one filled the decadent dessert void brilliantly. I am immensely pleased with it. If you are a vegan or have a vegan friend, BUY THIS BOOK NOW!

Great book!

The desert on the cover caught my attention, I've not figured out which one it is in the book....yet. I've made the lemon pound cake twice, once with and once without poppy seeds and my non-vegan husband and 13 year old son raved about them (quite a compliment from those two). The book has many many recipes I look forward to trying, especially with the holidays coming, I am looking forward to wowing my non-vegan family.
