Review

Sophie Uliano, author of Gorgeously Green: 8 Simple Steps to an Earth-Friendly Life
"I absolutely love how Kim has made vegan cooking so simple and delicious.  This cookbook has me wanting to try my hand at every dish – YUM!"

944 Magazine, November 2010
…visually stunning 291 pages filled with 150 healthy recipes that are also "good to the earth" along with vibrant photos."

“Leave it to Kim Barnouin to come up with the spiciest cookbook of the season; and we’re not just talking about taste. …Where Barnouin shines is in her easy to understand overview of problematic ingredients … her analysis of everything from global fish depletion to the truth on organic foods is actually well worthy of serious consideration and finally proves that eating healthy can actually be fun.”

Kirkus
"Barnouin gives home, beauty and style some loving in this sassy new guide.
Using the same formula that made vegan opus Skinny Bitch a whirlwind success (along with the subsequent sequels), the author trains her focus on the eco-friendly household. True to her brand’s form, Barnouin’s latest dispenses disturbing information about the toxicity and overall evilness of standard household items. She warns of benzene in paint and furniture (a known carcinogen), BPA in plastics (which imitates estrogen in the body and causes myriad health problems), phthalates in nail polish (linked to cancer in lab animals) and many more. Part of the series’ appeal emerges from the author’s ability make hippie philosophies seem glamorous, and this installment is no different. She explores each topic with girly banter and a good dose of verbal lashing. Some of Barnouin’s mantras will be too hardcore for average readers, such as avoiding bleach as a cleaning product. And her advice to abandon wardrobe purchases consisting of polyester, non-organic cotton, leather, down, fur or fabric dyes will leave fashionistas with little to wear. Those wondering if any of their possessions are safe may find solace in the decidedly more mellow segments on gardening, recycling, essential oils and DIY facials. Ladies seeking an irreverent guide to an eco-friendly home will enjoy this fun primer."

“There are so many reasons to love author – and chef extraordinaire – Kim Barnouin. If writing the award-winning Skinny Bitch (with co-author Rory Freedman) wasn’t enough, now she’s gone and crafted my favorite cookbook to date. My copy is littered with tabs to remind me which mouthwatering recipes I want to return to stat. I appreciate how the book opens with practical tips and useful information, such as a list of The Dirty Dozen and The Clean Fifteen. She discusses buying seasonal, the eleven worst food additives on the market, and a few facts about the ever hot topic, soy. There’s an herb and spice chart loaded with info, as well as a recommended shopping list for the perfect pantry. Need I say more? Indeed, there’s more that could be said, but maybe you just buy it.”

I was excited to buy this book because I already owned the original Skinny Bitch and I absolutely loved it. There were quite a few differences between the two books. There are actually pictures of the recipes, there are mini-articles about health breakthroughs, etc. It is not a waste of money to get both of them. This one is a little more mild, the way that the author presents the information is not as much "in your face" as the original. I am very pleased with this book. There are a lot of delicious recipes, and they seem to always turn out very well. I have already made 6 and they are all very tasty! You will not be disappointed, if you liked the first one, you will LOVE this one! If you didn't like the first one, you will LOVE this one!

There are some great recipies in here - and I will use many of them. The notes are obnoxious so I ended up skipping over all of the non-recipe writing. I havent eaten meat in over 20 years so I didnt need convincing but if I had, this wouldnt have done it!

Super disappointed that the recipes were full of soy and fake meat! The whole bitchy kitschy undertone is also very phoney!

As a vegan I enjoy trying new recipes so I looked forward to what Kim had to offer in this book. After trying her recipes I can safely conclude that you will be a skinny bitch after getting her book because the recipes are so bad, you won't be eating the food and naturally feel rather cranky as a result.

The introduction in the book is great, I find no fault in it. I found it funny, uplifting and informative (hence the 2 stars instead of 1) but the recipes are, well... just plain awful.

This book was either not edited properly or the recipes were not thoroughly tested by others. The recipes are poorly constructed with headers above the recipes giving tantalizing descriptions of what we can find in the recipe only to not find some of those ingredients anywhere in that recipe. Really?

The veggie calzone recipe was especially bad. I don't know how many people who would spend 20+ minutes cooking a sauce for a calzone only to add it to overcooked vegetables (her time guidelines, not mine) only to have the resulting dish 40 minutes later (not including prep time) taste bitter, be super mushy inside and not be filling in the slightest (in my case not at all, since I had to throw it in the garbage!).

Serving sizes are confusing and I don't quite understand what they are based on when a recipe makes 4 calzones but states that it serves 6.... not sure about that.

As I say, poorly constructed, not edited properly and a waste of time in my opinion.

If you want "skinny" vegan recipes you'd be better off with recipes by either Rip or Caldwell Esselstyn. If you want lot's of spice and flavour check out Isa Chandra Moskowitz's books, and if you want simple but satisfying dishes I recommend the Oh She Glows cookbook and stay away from this one!

This book is fun, beautifully bound and has lots of great, imaginative recipes. A good compliment to the vegan kitchen.
