My child has been a vegan for about 3 yrs now. In my desire to make sure he has a healthy diet and to feed him something, I have purchased many Vegan cookbooks. None of them can even come close to the cookbook 'How it all Vegan' by Tanya Barnard and Sarah Kramer. I live in a small town that doesn't carry specialty food items or many of the basic foods listed in most vegan cookbooks. Besides, I'm a working mom and I don't have the time or desire to fix exotic foods for one child. What I wanted was a cookbook that had simple, easy to prepare, easy to acquire ingredients, for foods that a teenager would like. 'How it all Vegan' is just such a book. I'm not a Vegan, but in preparing these receipes for my child, I've found that they're simple, made with most of the ingredients that I already have in my cupboards and most surprising of all, tasty. Yes, even my husband and I have partaken of the vegan meals. I'm not planning on becoming a vegan, but I'm ordering another 'How it all Vegan' by Barnard and Kramer so my son can take a copy with him to college. I don't want to give up mine.

I must confess, I am also a lazy vegetarian and new to veganism. So far I have been unable to find a better book on easy vegan recipes that ACTUALLY TASTE GOOD! My boyfriend and I always pull this book out when deciding on breakfast, lunch, and dinner and I have even come to memorize several of the recipes (that's how easy they are!). So far, there isn't a thing I haven't liked! This book covers all the basics on veganism, includes home products and ideas for kids! It's packed with information for such a thin book! I recommend it for all new and veteran vegans!!! Happy eating!!

this cookbook is amazing. Making food has never been so much easier. Instructions are easy to follow and its quite fascinating. I give this vegan cookbook an A+.

Ah! my favorite cookbook. It has lots of handy tips and ideas. It's fun, friendly and easy to use. The Shephard's pie is savory and the Balck Bean Salsa is always a hit at parties. Coconut milk is so easy and so good, but the rice milk is not so much fun and not so good. I use this cookbook so much that it's now falling apart (I've had this book for about 2 years). There are lots of quick and easy recipes and great suggestions.

Very good book for people looking to enhance their kitchen creativity. Unlike some of the competition, this does not have a lot of weird ingredients you need to struggle to find -- it's chock full of enjoyable and easy recipes, and can help you to find vegan possibilities for nearly any meal. Highly recommended.

This cookbook completely makes me understand the average what-I'm-eating-ignorant, pig-eyeballs-shaped-like-hot-dogs-devouring, colon-clogged Meat Patriot's aversion to "hippie food." The simple fact is that most vegans can't cook, don't know good food when taste it, and are almost immoral in their earnest, manic attempts to get the handful of vegans who appreciate good food and can cook it to resignedly spoon gobs of vastly mis-proportioned recipes past our sophisticated, offended taste buds and down to our protesting stomachs, which will later not manage to convert "Better Than (insert name of dairy product here)" into nerves, sinew and tissue, but only knots of searing gas. Wonderful things can be done with Real Food¿beans, rice, vegetables (God forbid), fruit, nuts, delicious breads, olive oil, the occasional soy substitute, methods of cooking from around the world, use of a simple, few ingredients instead of long lists of horrifying ones, and creative and adventurous use of the food we're given by the Earth rather than what we squeeze out of it¿but this book's recipes, with very few exceptions, are either disgusting, bland, or simply don't turn out when put into practice. I wouldn't go so far as to side with the burger bunch, but much more can be learned from befriending one good vegan foodie (check for good body odor, cleanliness of feet, and a knack of knowing which curry take-out places won't make one ill) than slaving over food processors with any one of dozens of these sorts of recipe collections propped up on your kitchen counter.

We sell pancakes made from their recipe every day at my restaurant. Totally great, fun, imaginative. Absolutely a must for vegans, in my opinion. Their free thinking ways inspire me to think way outside of the box when it comes to vegan cookery. They make vegan food not only not punitive but in many ways preferable.

Great first vegan cookbook. Lots of recipes for "omni" substitutes--sloppy joes, mac n' cheese...everything is excellent and very easy to make.

Great for vegetarians just starting to dable into vegan cooking. The recipes are simple and tastey. I especially love all the different replacements for non-vegan items (i.e. eggs) and the dry herb to fresh herb measurement converter.

Trying to become vegetarian or worse yet, vegan in a house of Atkins devotees isn¿t easy. That¿s where I find myself right now, and worse yet, I had no idea how to make vegan meals that were tasty and nutritionally balanced, and raw tofu looked horrible to me. Luckily, How it all Vegan answered my questions and had some answers to questions I didn¿t even know that I had! In a fun, witty way, both authors not only provide very yummy meals, they also give advice on how to keep kids happy on a vegan menu, how to help calm your mother down when you come out of the vegan closet, and so much more! There¿s even recipes for earth friendly cleaning and beauty products that not only benefit you, but the environment, and your pocket book. Most of the food in here is down to earth and easy to find in any grocery store, and the recipes are easy to follow. They even have a suggested list of kitchen equipment. What¿s really fun about this book is that I¿ve been cooking out of it and my meat loving family like what I¿ve been cooking, and my friends who are also omnivores like this food. It¿s a good book to have whether you¿re a vegan, have a friend who is, or just want some new healthy recipes to add to your collection.

This is a book written by two real people using easily available foods. It doesn't try to make up for not using meat, it just focuses on enjoying all of the great foods avaliable without taking animal lives. There is a great variety of types of food, and the personal histories are inspiring.

This book is great and very easy to follow. There are few exotic ingredients, just regular foods but mixed in different ways. Good importance is given to textures, like 'creamy', etc, which are hard to achieve in vegan cooking sometimes. I recommend.

Easy recipies with amazing results! I love it! And for all I have cooked with it, love it as well! Good book even if you aren't vegan! *mauh!*

I bought this book because I loved the punny title 'How it all Vegan.' This book is a hoot. Retro-50's style, punkrock cooks, and tasty, easy recipes. I'm trying to be a vegetarian. I don't want to go vegan, but I'm lactose intolerant, so I wanted to add more vegan recipes to my repetoire. This is a book I keep pulling off my shelf when I need a quick, easy tasty meal.

This is the first vegan book that I bought when I became vegan on April 2000. The recipes are easy, nutritious, delicious and absolutely fabulous. The book also has recipes for homeopathic remedies, pet biscuits, household products and many more. The 'cheesecake' recipes are to die for; I hosted a party once last December and my friends couldn't believe that there were no animal products in three of my ice creams, one fruit bread and one chocolate cake! This book is a must for every vegan or vegan wannabe!
