For those of you out there thinking, "I couldn't possibly need yet ANOTHER cookbook," think again!! Although, this IS a vegetarian cookbook, the recipes are so amazing, you won't even realize that there's something missing (meat!). I would highly recommend this book, especially for the more health-conscience person, since a lot of the recipes contain healthier ingredients. Before you think that you'll be feasting on birdseed, I just made the REBAR chocolate cake last night for my Dad's birthday. It's a 3-layer chocolate cake, with chocolate cream cheese filling and a chocolate ganache!! So there are still decadent, REAL WORLD foods. This book also makes a terrific gift for friends and family in your life who love to cook. Everyone I've come across who flips through it, just LOVES it! You will too!!
