Meet the Author

Ellen Kanner is an award-winning food writer, Huffington Post's Meatless Monday blogger, and the syndicated columnist Edgy Veggie. She is published in Bon Appetit, Eating Well, Vegetarian Times, Every Day with Rachael Ray, and Culinate, as well as in other online and print publications.

There's always room for more at her table. She believes in close community, strong coffee, organic food, and red lipstick. A fourth-generation Floridian, she lives "la vida vegan" in Miami with her husband.

    Complete confusion.  I have read 100 pages of this book and cannot understand where the author is taking me.  As a vegan, I was very much
    looking forward to reading this food (slash self help) memoir, but I am sorely disappointed.  Basically she is just rambling on and on about honoring your
    ingredients, eating slower, and changing to a plant-based diet.  The stories she tells are 
    presented in no order that I can tell and her tone of voice is getting quite annoying, I don't need to be called "honey" again.  
    And speaking of honey, she calls for honey in some of her vegan recipes and also tells a story of how she ate around the meat in a soup dish.  
    But ignoring those 2 indiscretions,  I do not recommend this book.  The book is just one big ramble and her tone of voice is getting on my nerves.
