Being new, I thought it would be nice if fellow vegans list some of their favorite books and cookbooks and the reasons why they recommend them.





I will start this thread with my favorite cookbook, "Skinny ***** in the Kitch".



I like this cookbook for the easy to make and understand recipes, as well as the authors down to earth approach, although they can be a little raunchy at times, lol.



In addition, I recommend "Skinny *****", and "Skinny *******". I liked how the authors researched different subjects and backed their reseach up with documented sources. Again, they have that, down to earth, raunchy humor while explaining the reasons behind going vegan.

I don't normally buy recipe books but use the internet. My site I use most often is vegweb.com. I also liked Skinny B but did not buy the recipe book.

I eat everything that nature voluntarily gives: fruits, vegetables, and the products of plants. But I ask you to spare me what animals are forced to surrender: meat, milk, and cheese. ~Author Unknown

Do magazines count? I'm a subscriber to Vegetarian Times. It helped seal the deal for me when I first decided to try vegetarianism. I'm not much of a book person anyway. I like reading mags. I like the articles and recipes, and they present a fair share of vegan ones as well. The main thing I like about the mag that I didn't really find in the books was the fact that it includes pics of the recipes. I hate that a lot of those vegan cookbooks don't show pictures along with some of the recipes.

I love this thread. I know all the newcomers would find this thread to be helpful.



Is there anyway to make this thread permanent???



I have ordered a few cookbooks from barnes and noble.



I ordered the joy of vegan baking (read on the message board it was awesome), "The Candle Cafe Cookbook", "The Vegan Scoop" (ice cream recipes), and "The Compassionate Cook".

Bolded: I've got their other book, The Garden of Vegan. Both seem good.



Dreena Burton has written some good cookbooks. I've got her Everyday Vegan.





I also really enjoyed Brendan Brazier's last book, Thrive Fitness. His other books are also good.



For veganism from a spiritual perspective, I like Andrew Linzey's Animal Gospel.

The ones I use most often (the ingredient-spattered, sticky-paged ones) are La Dolce Vegan and Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. I strongly suspect The Vegan Table is inching into well-used territory.

Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World is my favorite. Those cupcakes always turn out amazing!

I like The Joy of Vegan Baking and The Vegan Table too.

I like Vegan Italiano, pretty simple stuff for the most part.



I've gotten Vegan with a Vengeance, La Dolce Vegan, and How it all Vegan from the library and thought those were great books too.



I use the internet a lot though. Vegweb and also blogs. I love VB member vyapti's blog: http://myveggiekitchen.blogspot.com



I actually thought the Skinny ***** in the Kitch cookbook was awful. A few decent recipes to not be a total waste of money, but I thought it was mostly full of "vegan bacon," or "vegan cheese" or "vegan sour cream," etc. I don't know, I guess I was looking for new ideas, rather than just buying a bunch of vegan substitutes.
