Welcome to VB! My favourite cookbook is one called 'Student Veggie Grub' which is not just for students, but is filled with cheap, tasty, quick recipes.

trh8 - Cookbooks aren't really necessary. There are thousands of recipes (probably tens of thousands) online. We have a recipe section here, <a href="http://www.vegweb.com" target="_blank">VegWeb</a> is another good site, and of course you can always search Google for [google]vegetarian recipes[/google]. I usually just sift through them until I find something fairly easy that sounds good. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Michael's pretty much correct - you don't absolutely NEED a cookbook at all.<br><br><br><br>
However, through a lot of trial and error and wasted food, I have learned a few things about Internet recipes...<br><br><br><br>
ANYONE can write down a list of ingredients and call it a recipe.<br><br><br><br>
A few tips:<br><br>
MAKE SURE you try recipes from actual cooks/cookbooks/TV shows/reputable websites etc.<br><br>
OR choose recipes with a few personal notes from the person who wrote/posted it,<br><br>
OR choose recipes with a rating system,<br><br>
OR choose recipes that have several reviews/comments written by people who've actually TRIED the recipe...<br><br><br><br>
Stay away from those that just look like they're cut-n-pasted from elsewhere...<br><br><br><br>
Yes, even a few of the recipes here on our dear VeggieBoards have not ended up as wonderful as I had imagined they would (*gasp!! I know! The horror) though rest assured, most are MARVELOUS!<br><br><br><br>
A few of my favorites (besides here of course <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> )<br><br><a href="http://www.bryannaclarkgrogan.com/page/page/661699.htm" target="_blank">http://www.bryannaclarkgrogan.com/page/page/661699.htm</a><br><br><a href="http://www.veganmania.com/" target="_blank">http://www.veganmania.com/</a> (Kreeli's actually a VB member!)<br><br><a href="http://www.theppk.com/" target="_blank">http://www.theppk.com/</a><br><br><a href="http://vegkitchen.com/" target="_blank">http://vegkitchen.com/</a> (Nava's son posts here too!)<br><br><a href="http://www.veganchef.com/" target="_blank">http://www.veganchef.com/</a><br><br><a href="http://www.veganmeat.com/recipie.html" target="_blank">http://www.veganmeat.com/recipie.html</a><br><br><br><br>
