Lots of appealing & easy recipes. Took some of the ideas with me to the Farmers Market & shopped specifically to make them. Turned out wonderful!

As always, I make a few tweaks here & there for my own/family taste, but that's the fun!

Most of the recipes don't need tweaking at all! The ones I've tried have been great.

This is an okay vegetarian cookbook. There are a lot of recipes in this book, with a range of easy to moderate in terms of difficulty.

I liked, in particular, that most of the recipes did not include hard to find ingredients, but I am disappointed that there seemed to be too many recipes that had fake-meat soy based products in them.

Overall, a fairly decent collection of easy to make vegetarian meals.
