Hello All! I’m back after being bedridden for the last 5 days. Erin held down the blog and even stopped by yesterday to see me in my semi-recovering state, so she can attest… I was REALLY sick. If my Instagram account seemed kind of random, that’s because I was laying in bed unsure of what was going on, and used photos I took on other days. I’m still not eating much but soups and crackers, but it’s a major improvement from not being able to eat at all during the first three days. It’s lucky today is about a book and doesn’t require cooking! Erin and I both have at least six cookbooks each, if I had to guess. That doesn’t seem like much, but if you count how many recipes, it’s thousands!
We definitely couldn’t agree on which is both of our favorites, so instead we both have submissions for you today! Enjoy.
It’s way to hard to just pick one favorite cookbook, but the first cookbook I bought for myself when I went vegan has always been a favorite of mine. Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s “Isa Does It!” is full of beautiful, full page pictures and everything I’ve tried from it has been absolutely wonderful. A particular favorite of ours is the vegan nacho recipe with taco spiced lentils and cashew queso – we’re big on nachos with movie night. I can truly say this cookbook got me few the first few months of going vegan.
- Angela Liddon’s “The Oh She Glows Cookbook“
- Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero’s “Veganomicon” (this was actually a gift to Erin from Elly!)
- Jason Wyrick’s “Vegan Tacos“
- And…. tons and tons of blogs!
Both of us are excited to hear some suggestions for other great cookbooks and some shout outs to the chefs and cookbook authors we love through the Vegan Mofo channels! Hope you are having a blissful Saturday-we’re out for the weekend but we’ll be back Monday with a make-up post about our kitchen tour (hint: it’s not traditional) and something to show those non-vegans in our life how versatile vegan food is.
