Mehr über den Autor
Vegan cooking superstar Sarah Kramer returns with her first solo cookbook. Vegan legend Sarah Kramer, co-author of the bestselling "How It All Vegan! And The Garden of Vegan", brings readers a bright, bubbly cookbook full of brilliant easy recipes. Award-winning vegan cookery writer Sarah Kramer tries her hand at solo authoring with this fantastic cookbook for the vegan, the part-time vegan and the vegan inspired. Plagued throughout childhood by ill health and low energy, Kramer's life was turned around by her discovery of veganism and now she is passing the word out in fresh, fun recipes that anyone can make for a fraction of the price they might have thought. Veganism is often stereotyped as expensive, time-consuming and dull. How is anyone going to make a decent meal when they can't even use cheese, right? Wrong. Kramer has collected a whole raft of great recipes, ranging from snacks to full on meals and desserts, all of which eschew animal products - and all of which can be made in less than half an hour for a normal amount of money.Includes recipes for: Beauty and the Beet Borscht; Mocked Clam Chowder; Roasted Cherry Tomato Pasta; Sloppy Janes; Blessed Broccoli Stir-Fry; Apple Pie Pancakes; Carob Almond Truffles; and Tomato Soup Cake.

Kramer gibt gute Tipps für die Hauswirtschaft, z.B. eine Liste mit 45 Nutzungen für Salz.
Allerdings gibt es keine Fotos vom Essen, aber irgendwie macht das nicht so viel aus, da die Rezepte alle appetitlich klingen. Dies ist ein sehr schönes Kochbuch und ist auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert. Es hat nur den einzigen Fehler für mich, wie so viele vegane Kochbücher, dass die Fotos vom Essen fehlen.

Her books are not only full of the most delicious, mouthwatering recipes ever, but they are also full of cook cooking tips, nifty crafts, pop culture, and humor. This and the two preceding books she did with Tanya Bernard I have read though and through before I ever cooked out of them, just because they're fun! Sarah is also down to earth, and her books aren't preachy like other vegan books. No guilt trips here. Just good food. How good?
Wow! Not only is this book full of many yummy general recipes, the deserts in this book are to die for. Yum! Sarah also tells us how to make our own faux meat from scratch, so no more having to buy the pricey stuff from the heath food store. 95% of the ingredients used are simple things every grocery store has, and when something even semi-exotic is used, a common counterpart that can be substituted is named. Most of the recipes make 4 small or 2 large helpings, and can be made in 20-30 minutes. I appreciate this so much!
I know that I'm ranting on and on, I just literally can't say enough about Sarah or this book. If you or someone you know is vegan, or even if you want to eat healthier, I can't recommend this book enough! It's just too much fun!
That said, this cookbook is not perfect. It could stand one more good editing. I could list all of the small mistakes I found (such as places where ingredients were listed, and then not mentioned in the actual part where you assemble/cook the recipe). But these omissions are minor, and there aren't many of them. Little mistakes in cookbooks can spell disaster, but the oversights, at least the ones I've found, are all obvious and inconsequential.
My biggest suggestion for this cookbook would be more tips on how to improvise some of the dishes (Vegan With A Vengeance is full of suggestions on how to alter recipes based on what's sitting around in the refrigerator). Several of the recipes I've made lend themselves to a multitude of variations. This would have made an already good cookbook great.
Also, I would have to agree that it is pretty obnoxious that there are more pictures of Sarah Kramer being cute and quirky than there are pictures of the actual food, especially since many of the recipes are credited to other people.
I was once told that a cookbook is a good purchase if you find just a handful of recipes that you enjoy enough to start making regularly, but I didn't find any such recipes with this book. I didn't even pick up any useful cooking tips. Pick up the first two books from this author if you like, but skip this one.
Well, sadly, that's this cookbook in a nutshell.
I've tried six of these recipes and they all failed to pass muster in much the same way unrated recipes off the internet tend to. This doesn't surprise me too much since most of the recipes are actually recipes sent to the author by her fans and her friends. A nice thought but she really should have done some serious culinary editing. If a free recipe I've jacked from some website bombs I just shrug my shoulders - I should have known better. If a recipe from a cookbook I've payed about 20 bucks for bombs I get a little tetchy.
Sometimes people don't like a vegan or vegetarian recipe because they've never eaten tofu before or think that tahini is the misspelled name of a pacific island and why is it being called for in this recipe?! Sometimes people just aren't used to the way carob chips taste and get testy when they were expecting them to taste EXACTLY like chocolate chips. This is not my problem. I've been vegetarian for 12 years, vegan for 1 year, I grew up in a hippie household eating health food and I've been cooking for myself since I was ten.
I feel sad about having to write such an unfavorable review. Sarah seems like someone I would really like and the book does have a section of fun vegan stuff (plus cute retro pics of Sarah) that aren't without merit. However since her book is marketed as a COOKbook and not a neat-vegan-stuff book I feel obligated to warn other not terribly wealthy vegans to save their cash. If you want to know how to make a vinyl cuff that says vegan on it or think pictures of Sarah Kramer being silly are worth 15 dollars than go for it. If you want delicious vegan recipes look elsewhere.
