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!

Bitchtastic! Nov. 6 2010
By M. Dwyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I was browsing through this book in the bookstore yesterday and just had to purchase it. The recipes all look fabulous! This morning for breakfast, I made the Crepes with Raspberry Sauce - so simple to make and so delicious to eat, as well as the Breakfast Scramble, another yummy treat.

I was especially drawn to this cookbook, because, although it's vegan, you don't miss the no-meat recipes at all. There's such a variety - Coconut Banana French Toast, Black Bean and Tomato Soup, Warm Spring Rolls with Spicy Sesame Sauce, Polenta-Crusted Eggplant Parmesan, Jenny and Heather's Mini Lemon Cheesecake Bites with a Strawberry Sauce...I could go on and on. One of the particular draws to this cookbook was the lack of "fake meats" used. They are very rarely utilized in a meal, instead relying on fresh produce, legumes, and whole grains.

Almost all of the ingredients listed are found in regular grocery stores, which is also a big plus. And there's nutritional information included in each recipe, so you can stay your skinny self or make yourself one.

This book is a must buy. I am looking forward to cooking my way through the book and doing "stay-in" meals instead of "take-out", for once!

Skinny Bitch: Ultimate Everyday Cookbook Jan. 24 2011
By L. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As a long time vegan chef I have lots and lots of cookbooks. I often end up developing my own recipes but I have to say, "This is hands-down my all time favorite cookbook!" The recipes are delicious, easy and they even work as written! The main changes I've made is substituting maple sugar for cane sugar (I don't eat cane sugar) and cutting down on the Earth Balance a smig and adding oil rather than Earth Balance in a couple of recipes. Other than that I've hardly changed a thing. I've made about 50% of the recipes at this point and I couldn't be happier. One more thing, the pictures are beautiful and inspiring -- I just love a book with pretty pictures ;-). Like I said above, I was really hesitant to buy this book because I have lots of cookbooks but now I'm buying it for all my friends! This is a MUST HAVE!

So far so good! Oct. 10 2010
By Nerdygrl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I've tried three recipes from the book so far, and I've really enjoyed them. I had the coconut/banana french toast, spicy vegetable curry, and curried pumpkin soup. The only one I modified, by adding more spice to, was the curry; I happen to like mine really spicy. The recipes in this book are more "sophisticated" than what was available in the other two books. I did enjoy them, but this book relies a lot less on meat analogs than the previous ones (but there are still a good selection of them). It's more of a whole foods cooking style. Very good chapter on sustainability too. The tone is still sassy, but I never had a problem with that. I'm looking forward to trying the asian macaroni and cheese; it sounds delish! BTW the french toast was incredible.

A must have! Dec 12 2010
By schoonie_14 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
No kidding! If this is unchartered water for you then this book is your friend! Kim has made this transition easy for me and my family of five! My husband and kids don't even realize what I am doing....the food is that good. I am excited for the tools that are put together. Pictures are very nice...would like more. Has cal/fat info for each dish. Fun to read. Major down fall-there is no "prep and cook time" listed. So you need to read through the recipe and understand what you are getting into BEFORE you start cooking....some take time. But a wonderful addition to my kitchen.

Very Impressed for First Vegan Cookbook Jan. 10 2011
By West Coast Surf Mama - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I recently ordered this book, never previously vegan, to help my 4 month old daughter who is nursing. She was diagnosed with severe infant reflux. The best cure was for me to nurse her, and go on an extreme dietary change, first eliminating all dairy. As a complete dairy lover, this has been extremely difficult. I LOVE cheese, ice-cream, etc. Otherwise, I normally eat a very healthy diet and regularly exercise, so am already in great shape. After ordering this book, I was SO grateful to see all the milk/cheese/butter substitutes I might have never known about. I have now tried several of the recipes, and have been surprised how good they were in comparison to non-vegan. Thus making my transition not nearly as painful as it started. This book has been quite an eye opener as to why many turn to a vegan diet, and I now have a greater appreciation for them. The book includes dietary related environmental information, some of which I have heard previously, but appreciate and would absolutely not criticize as the majority of that is easy to obtain facts that can help our world. I do believe these recipes are excellent for your body when added into an already healthy lifestyle or to jump-start a completely unhealthy lifestyle.
