Summer Reading: Vegetarian Cooking For Everyone

When I think of August, I think of lazy afternoons sitting around trying to catch up on my summer reading. For some of us summer reading means chick lit or memoirs, but for me it means cookbooks and food adventures. In fact, I believe that some cookbooks are actually worth crawling into bed with! That's why, for the entire month of August, we'll spotlight a cookbook or food related book each day.

To start things off, I thought I'd share one of my favorite cookbooks with you. Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone by Deborah Madison (of Greens fame) is one of those books that really is for everyone - even the most avid meat eater can find something useful and interesting in this book. It's laid out alphabetically, is often called the vegetarian Joy of Cooking, and the recipes are clear, concise and easy to follow. This book makes for an amazing house-warming gift, but personally I think it's worth it just for the veggie tortilla soup...

I own many vegetarian cookbooks and the only one I really use is Vegan with a Vengeance. I find that I rarely use cookbooks and rely mostly on the internet. This way, I save money and can read reviews before making a recipe. I read the reviews for this book on Amazon and am actually considering purchasing it. It sounds like a very useful cookbook! I will definately check for this tomorrow when I stop by Borders.

I just became a vegetarian yesterday (july 31, 2007) after reading a Natural Cures book by Kevin Trudeau and learning how the FDA is allowing all these sick, diseased animals to be turned into food! Yuck! I am also going totally-organic!
