I really, really love to cook (sometimes). My father was a chef and would use every single bowl, knife, pot and pan when he cooked a meal at home. I, on the other hand, really like things simple. On occasion I like to chop all my ingredient first and then start cooking but most of the time I have to turn the heat off after adding my garlic because I am in the middle of chopping the next ingredient... Why am I telling you this?
Because I like simple cooking. I am a mother of two young boys and need things to be simple. I need to get dinner on the table while helping with homework or running out the door to Scouts or sports.
This cookbook is full of amazingly delicious recipes. Ones that I am happy to cook and take the time with. Gently loving each ingredient as I add it. These dishes are so full of flavor and exciting to the vegan palate (which sometimes gets a little tired of tofu and plain veggies). I loved taking my time to make many of these recipes but I honestly have to to save them for special occassions.
While this cookbook will stay of my shelf and I will always look through it. I think this is best left to the people who have more time. Don't get me wrong, I really want to make everything from this book but I lack the time and energy in my life right now. This book is full of great recipes that will add some variety and spice to any home cooks repertoire!
