Great, easy, inexpensive recipes

I collect cookbooks, and I keep coming back to this one over and over again. I have been amazed with how EVERY recipe I try is easily prepared in less than 30 minutes and turns out delicious. Most of her recipes are easily converted to vegan by leaving out the cheese. I keep buying copies to give to friends, and then they tell me that they have bought copies to give to their friends. I have brought the White Beans and Sage dish to several potlucks and it's been the hit of the party. I hope Ms. Fritschner comes out with another book.

I use this book ALL the time!

I had been a vegetarian for a couple of years before I found this cookbook and boy, did it change the way I cook! I had been mostly relying on a couple of basic beans and rice type dishes and adapting my meat-based recipes. This book opened up a whole new world of possibilities. I use the recipes in it at least 5 days a week. There are plenty of them from different categories (grains, potatoes, pasta, etc.) so my family doesn't get bored (and I have 2 little children under 6). We all love the food prepared using these recipes. It's also given me some inspiration for coming up with dishes of my own. One of my favorite things about this book is the fact that Ms. Frischner makes suggestions about what to serve with each dish and often variations on the recipe or what to do with leftovers. This is a must have for EVERY kitchen whether you're vegetarian or not!

Learn how to cook!

My mother gave me this book a year ago, when I left for my second year of college, and I didn't use it once. At the beginning of this summer, I promised myself that I would learn how to cook, since I will be cooking for myself at school this year. For the last month and a half, my grandma and I have teamed up every day to make a different, but always very tasty meal from this book. It's totally fun! At the beginning of the weak I check out the recipes I want to try, buy the ingredients, and I'm ready to cook after a day at work. One of the greatest things about these recipes is that the instructions are very thorough, which makes it hard to screw up. I made my first cake from scratch, and it turned out perfectly. Needless to say, I am very happy and am proud to say that I finally have some of the basic, but very necessary, skills of cooking down pat.

Great book for people learning how to cook!

This is the book that taught me how to cook. I was intimidated by other cookbooks with their long ingredient lists and complicated preparations. Recipes from this cookbook are easy to make and absolutely delicious. I would recommend this book for people who want to begin to cook more meals at home, even if they aren't vegetarian -- the recipes are so good that even meat-eaters would appreciate them.

A cookbook for everyone who wants to cook vege recipies!

This book has mouthwatering, uncomplicated, vegetarian recipes. There is something for everyone. Most cookbooks require many ingredients and have tomatoes or tofu in just about every recipe, this one makes it easy with minimal, simple ingredients. There are great tips to help you before you experiment, which is really thoughtful. I made the Sweet Potato Soup and it was an interesting surprise, really good and very easy to make. The only thing I found lacking in this book is nutritional information for the recipies, it would be nice to know fat and calorie content per serving.
