Cookbook Crazy!

As my contribution to Day 3 of Vegan MoFo, I wanted to post about something other than purely food. Soooooo, I want to tell you about my addiction. To cookbooks. To vegan cookbooks. I must admit, I read them like novels, cover-to-cover as soon as I acquire them. Maybe it's a collection, maybe an addiction...who's to say? :) I have been adding to this collection for about 2 1/2 years now, so it's almost where I want it to be!

(btw, these are in NO particular order...just how they happen to be on my shelf!)
1. Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone--Deborah Madison
2. The Complete Book of Raw Food--Baird Rodwell
3. Moosewood Lowfat Favorites--The Moosewood Collective

I also get tons of recipes from Vegetarian Times and VegNews magazines, as well as blogs, friends, family members, and my job at Main Squeeze Natural Foods I have a few good food resources! Someday, I hope to have my own cookbook to add to others' collections!

Does anyone have any suggestions for cookbooks that I don't have that are essential?? I am really excited to add Isa and Terry's Brunch cookbook to my repertoire....aaaaah breakfast!!!

I love this post. I'm with you on the addiction. I never cared about cooking before going vegan. Now my collection is getting out of hand.

You beat me - I think I only have about 15! Though I often get books from the library and keep them for ages!

Are you looking for vegan book recommendations, or cookbooks in general? You might like World Vegetarian by Madhur Jaffrey. It's not 100% vegan, but it mostly is, and the vegan recipes are so good, it's worth it.
