Side Dish Of Sass Shagrin S Comedienne By Day Humor Makes This A Read That S Satisfying For The Funny Bone As Well As The Belly So, I love the title of this book and I couldn t resist borrowing it from the library I m glad I didn t buy it though Most of the recipes are not my cup of tea I was surprised at how few appealed to me, even though I don t like vegan meats Naturally, most of the recipes I could see making are desserts The savory dishes that struck my fancy are the vegan parmesan blend and the vegan ricotta, cheese recipes, and the vegan kugel with broccoli rabe and chanterelles, and the garlicky white beans So, I love the title of this book and I couldn t resist borrowing it from the library I m glad I didn t buy it though Most of the recipes are not my cup of tea I was surprised at how few appealed to me, even though I don t like vegan meats Naturally, most of the recipes I could see making are desserts The savory dishes that struck my fancy are the vegan parmesan blend and the vegan ricotta, cheese recipes, and the vegan kugel with broccoli rabe and chanterelles, and the garlicky white beans One sort of dessert that looks wonderful are the vegan Belgian waffles For me, the two most intriguing and tempting desserts are the vegan Twinkies, those because the author encourages creativity so I d definitely make the filling chocolate, and the dessert that made me the hungriest was Bubbe s pinwheel cookies I doubt I d make any of these though There s a wonderful professional vegan bakery that makes single serving vegan versions of Hostess cupcakes, whoppie pies, and other such unhealthy fare, and I can partake if and when cravings strike I actually usually prefer vegan versions of cakes, cookies, etc and nobody can tell they re made especially vegan anyway as they don t taste any differently from traditional versions, and they re so delicious and there are plentiful recipes in many cookbooks and on many websites The homemade vegan marshmallows look good too, but once again, those are easy to buy Making the marshmallows and cookies and Twinkies could be a fun cooking project to do with older kids What I did love about this book is that the author is entertaining She writes well, she s funny, and she includes interesting autobiographical information that is heartfelt, amusing, and interesting, and which givessubstance to what would otherwise be just a collection of recipes I do acknowledge that the recipes are highly creative People who long for gourmet or junk animal based foods are likely to appreciate this book Most of the recipes seem to takework than is worth it to me, but for experienced cooks the instructions are clear and the amount of work to make many of the recipes would likely seemreasonable than it does to me There are eight pages of photos that show seventeen of the completed recipes they re all in one place in the center of the book the front cover photo might be an eighteenth recipe but I think the three photos on the back cover may be duplicates Yes, the Twinkies are shown I wish that there werephotographs because the ones included are a welcome addition, but I have a strong preference for photos for every cookbook recipe, something I realize is probably often not feasible because of the expense The index is designed well for searching and finding ingredients and recipes Each sub section of the contents has recipes, though many don t have even a tangential relationship to the title name, but I like including cookbook contents pages because they do give at least some information about what to expect in the included recipes, although this book s contents aren t as easy to share as for most cookbooks Contents IntroductionThe Shaggy Kitchen Have to Have Pantry

recipes from it so keep in mind I have no first hand experience but I would highly recommend someone look through the book themselves instead of blind buying the book It uses a large amount of prepared vegan substitutes which is a huge pet peeve of mine The book opens by listing some recipes for gluten or fruit flavored as meat substitutes and then goes on to cheese substitutes Some of the cheese subs themselves call for pre packaged vegan sour cream or pre packag I have yet to make any recipes from it so keep in mind I have no first hand experience but I would highly recommend someone look through the book themselves instead of blind buying the book It uses a large amount of prepared vegan substitutes which is a huge pet peeve of mine The book opens by listing some recipes for gluten or fruit flavored as meat substitutes and then goes on to cheese substitutes Some of the cheese subs themselves call for pre packaged vegan sour cream or pre packaged vegan cream cheese The vegan goat cheese calls for sour cream, cream cheese, and soy feta.A good number of the other recipes have similar issues Some of them call for multiple types of Teese or Cheezely neither of which have I ever seen The ranch dressing recipe calls for prepared vegan sour cream, veganaise, vegan cream cheese, soy milk, soy creamer and then the spices Overall this is probably the most disappointed I have been in a vegan cookbook in a long time Maybe I will find some recipes to try that will impress me and my tune will change but I wanted to give a heads up to folks on here that they may want to inspect the book themselves before blind buying Really great combined with Vegan on the Cheap which details how to make the prepackaged foods veganize this call for for, from scratch.pretty exciting recipes. If you want to learnabout Vegan cooking vegetarian plus no animal based food, such as cheese and eggs The only previous Vegan cookbook that I have explored is Skinny Bitch Ultimate Everyday Cookbook by Kim Barnouin By way of comparison, I find the latter somewhat preferable to Veganize This However, this volume is a fine introduction to Vegan cooking The book begins with the necessities of a Vegan pantry, including a lot of replacement components e.g., MimicCreme is a substitute for If you want to learnabout Vegan cooking vegetarian plus no animal based food, such as cheese and eggs The only previous Vegan cookbook that I have explored is Skinny Bitch Ultimate Everyday Cookbook by Kim Barnouin By way of comparison, I find the latter somewhat preferable to Veganize This However, this volume is a fine introduction to Vegan cooking The book begins with the necessities of a Vegan pantry, including a lot of replacement components e.g., MimicCreme is a substitute for heavy cream The next section is an important one how to build Vegan equivalents for meats, chicken, fish and shellfish The author refers to these as seitan recipes She notes the importance of Page 2 developing a setain recipe that is not only delicious to vegans and omnivores, but one that the novice can approach with confidence I do wish that the author had not been so cute in calling the second chapter Recipes guaranteed to get you laid Maybe I m an old timer, but I think it s in rather poor taste.On the other hand, recipes here and later do promise to be tasty Some illustrations Vegan goat cheese, spinach, and sun dried tomato stuffed pork chops etc , Eggs Benedict Florentine omelets with sage Hollandaise sauce, Pan seared white pepper tofu scallops with basil cream sauce served over linguine, and Vegan quattro formaggio white truffle macaroni and cheese.So, overall, a useful cookbook, explaining Vegan cooking and providing an interesting array of recipes As a vegetarian looking to cut down on the amount of dairy and other animal products I eat, I found this book really interesting and would definitely recommend it to other people who are trying to do the same Yes there are some pre made items in these recipes but I also there are know plenty of blogs that tell you how to make this stuff at home if you prefer not to buy pre packaged stuff There are some amazing recipes in here so please don t dis count it if you enjoy homey american food. I really love how this book has how to make vegan cheese as well as any meat you can think of I see this book being supper helpful in that aspect On the other hand, this book isfor when you have time to make a meal and not a fast bite cook book I hope i will be able to make everything in this book. I have this and can t seem to make anything from it I love vegan cook books and although I love the title of this book it just sits on my shelf in my collection looking cool but never getting any use. I ll star this when I actually try some of the recipes It is full of recipes I do want to try.
