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 have BabyCakes and I am finding the recipes a little difficult. I have years of baking expirience to.
Skinny ***** in the kitch is my fav.
I want this now!

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.
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.
