This book is perfect for people who have either just transitioned to veganism or would like to in that it is chock full of recipes that result in food that doesn't taste radically different from what the average meat-eater is accustomed to. The photos are gorgeous, the writing is great and no matter how much you think you know about baking, I promise you'll learn something. This is not a "health food" book, although the recipes are cholesterol-free, lactose-free and healthier than the average non-vegan recipes. Instead, it's a book that helps you understand how easy it is to bake without eggs and dairy. My favorite part of the book is the section on milk, butter and egg substitutes, some of which do indeed make the recipes healthier (e.g., using ground flax seed and water rather than egg replacer, using almond milk rather than soy milk for those of us trying to minimize our intake of soy, or using date sugar rather than white sugar). There are loads of tips and "Food Lore," which are interesting trivia tidbits that provide a historical context for the food. Perhaps most helpful, however, are the "Troubleshooting" pages that list the most common problems and their likely origins. Finally, the Appendices will save you a lot of time because the author has already organized your pantry and utensils for you and tells you exactly what you will need (/need to buy), and she includes a glossary, lists of what to substitute if you don't have the pan that's called for, and most fascinating to me, a section on the difference between baking soda and baking powder (I always wondered about that). I've made the corn bread, the pancakes, a couple of smoothies, almond milk and the chocolate mousse because I had the ingredients lying around, and I look forward to trying my hand at chocolate chip scones this week. Then off to the serious holiday stuff so I can bring something yummy to every party I attend--so that I have something to eat (and share) at every party I attend. --animalperson dot net
In all my years of baking (or cooking for that matter) I have never see a more beautiful and user friendly book. The layout is outstanding. The page stock is impressive, the colors and images outstanding. The book pages lay nicely when the book is open and the recipes are superb. You KNOW you are eating healthy foods and feel good about it. From beginner to experienced veg*n baker/cook, this book is for you. I simply cannot say enough positive about this book. Just look at it and you will know what I mean. Literally superb job Colleen! This is the standard others should shoot for in recipe books!! Very educational as well. LOVE IT --Thomas Fronzack
Got it, love it, you've got to get this! If you want to add nutrition to your baked goods or if you support living compassionately towards animals, this cookbook provides easy to make recipes that will blow you away! Colleen includes traditional goodies- pumpkin pie, chocolate chip cookies, etc. as well as some not so traditional recipes that definitely make this cookbook stand out from the rest. The raspberry jam oatmeal bars are a favorite! CBIGLYHALO. love this cookbook. it is obvious to me after trying 4 recipes and having them all be great, that the author has tried these and knows they work. i have a very uptight family that i dine with every sunday, and it is now becoming commonplace for me to wow them with my vegan desserts. i trust this cookbook and move from one recipe to another without worry. yes, this cookbook calls for alot of white flour and sugar but it doesn't claim to be a cookbook of healthy dessert recipes. it does, however, do exactly what it was written for - make great vegan desserts for those wanting dessert! Sugerleaf. Ms. Partick-Goudreau's receipes from this book will exceed any expectations you may have regarding vegan baking even if you are already vegan. Most instructions are simple enough for novice bakers yet the finished products are nothing short of spectacular & delicious. The richly complex & intense flavors offered up by such basics as chocolate chip cookies are mind blowing. Colleen has carefully shaped these receipes in such a way that the elimination of dairy products does not compromise them one bit. The beautiful pictures & high quality of the publication makes it worth owning if only to browse through. This book is a must for any baker at any level. Paul S When people think about vegan desserts, they think that they are going to get hoodwinked into eating healthily. Well, folks, Ms. Patrick-Goudreau has completely debunked any myths regarding vegan desserts. Love chocolate? Me too. It's here. Love a good cookie like me? Your soymilk will no longer be lonely. How about savory? Cornbread? Olive bread? Seriously, people. You can't go wrong. There is a wide range of recipes that will make you a successful baker--even if you are short on time. What I also really appreciate is that is a really well written and organized cookbook. (Can you say multiple indexes? I'm a geek I know, but who doesn't love an index when you are pressed for time?) The recipes are clear. There is an abundance of information and helpful suggestions yet it does not feel overwhelming. Anytime you open up this book, you are invited to discover something new about the tantalizing world of vegan desserts. What in the world could be wrong with that? So, now, go forth and bake vegan. Wow your family, friends, coworkers. The proof is in the pudding--of which there are a few recipes in this book, I might add! Anyway, I dare anyone to take a bite into any one of these desserts and tell me it tastes like wheatgrass because it is not laden with cholesterol. No way. No how. These recipes are utterly delectable in every way a dessert should be. I know that I will enjoy this book for years to come --Foodie Number One

Principali recensioni dei clienti
Lo uso tantissimo e i risultati sono come da libro, non mi ha mai deluso.
Attenzione: in inglese
ha una puzza nauseabonda. l'ho dovuto tenere all'aperto poiché è riuscito a appestare tutto il locale dove si trovava, tenendo aperte le pagine del libro e ogni giorno cambiando pagina e sfogliandone un pò ma non potendo respirare mentre lo facevo.
Ancora puzza (dopo settimane!) però meno.
In definitiva anche se le ricette in esso contenute sono salutari, il libro fisicamente in sè credo che sia troppo pestilenziale; vorrei sapere con queli materiali è stato stampato...

The recipes are laid out well, and the photos are lovely. I do a little tweaking for my altitude and all is good.
To speak to those saying it's not healthy enough: go eat a piece of fruit and leave us heathens alone. I don't own any non vegan baking books, so *of course* the use of vegan substitutes are used, and no I could not do this on my own. Some people just aren't happy unless they are complaining.
Anyway, it's the perfect time of year to dive into this book as there will be plenty of parties and celebrations to bake for!
I consider this book a decent buy if you want to make sweets as close to their egg- and dairy-containing counterparts and possible, with minimum substitution; this is especially handy if you're baking to share with people who might be leery of chocolate cake made with zucchini or something such. It also doesn't ask you to use chickpea and spelt flour and other expensive, hard-to-find ingredients that are so annoyingly common in vegan recipes (there is an over-reliance on 'pure maple syrup', however; does she not know how prohibitively expensive that stuff is? I use agave instead). If you really want to save your money, I recommend using vegan recipe websites and blogs rather than buying this book. Great ones to try include the Post-Punk Kitchen, Vegan Dad, Fat-Free Vegan Kitchen, and No-Meat Athlete; they don't have the same baking substitution tutorials as a cookbook (at least, not that I know of), but they generally have great basic recipes as well as more varied, innovative ones...plus, it's free and the commenters often give nifty tips and tricks. For the record, this author publishes recipes on her website too, but you have to pay for a subscription to access them. I don't necessarily fault her for it (she has to pay the bills too), but I'd rather try out the recipes that authors offer for free...then buy their cookbooks if they're good. Thank you, Isa Chandra Moskowitz!
I have used many of the recipes in this book over the years and most can be tweaked a bit to make them a little more healthy, though I wouldn't say they are all necessarily good for you in the way that a green salad would be or something like that. This is a cookbook of treats and desserts. The only thing that would make the Kindle version of this cookbook better would be if the recipes were listed in the table of contents with a link to each recipe within the book. It would save a lot of time. (This would actually be a good feature for the paper copy as well, with no link, of course.)
