As a Minnesotan, I usually find that most vegan cookbook require ingredients that are simply not available in my area. Ms. Moskowitz has supplied us with a cookbook which is filled with recipes that doesn't require a two hour expedition to find ingredients!! ( and there was much rejoicing) I have found these recipes easy to follow and you have a great vegan meal in under an hour!! My favorites so far are Potato and Spinach curry, Moroccan chickpeas and zucchini, and mushroom tibs. "Appetite for Reductions" is a great cookbook that has helped me to eat and feel better. As most of the ingredients are inexpensive this has also been great way to try different foods while waiting for winter to finally to go away!! I strongly recommend!

Decent - not great

This book is not as good as Isa's other books (e.g., Vegan With A Vengeance Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar, Vegan Cupcakes take over the World, etc...). We LOVE Isa's other books. Just so you know, we typically follow a very lowfat, vegan diet (e.g., McDougall). ...
This book is not as good as Isa's other books (e.g., Vegan With A Vengeance Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar, Vegan Cupcakes take over the World, etc...). We LOVE Isa's other books. Just so you know, we typically follow a very lowfat, vegan diet (e.g., McDougall). In this book, the recipes are fat and calorie reduced (yes!), the techniques are great, and the recipes are easy to follow. However, the dishes seem to be missing the excellent flavors that Isa incorporated into her other works. My husband and I think the recipes I've made from Appetite for Reduction are not bad - just not great.

    This cookbook has seriously changed my life! As a new vegan with limited cooking experience, I've found all of the recipes that I've tried simple to prepare and delicious! I've cooked about half of the book so far and have lost some weight too! The meals are very satisfying and I love that all of the nutritional information is provided for each recipe.  Isa's voice throughout the cookbook is very entertaining too! I will absolutely be purchasing her other cookbooks.
