Although I usually frown on reviewing cookbooks w/o first trying the recipes, this one is an exception. The recipes are varied and designed to appeal to omnivores and reluctant vegetarians -- and thus perfect for entertaining. (They're also very clearly written.) The author explains that she has been a vegetarian for over 30 years, and in 1971 married a meat-and-potatoes man who hasn't changed his menu preferences, but is a strict vegetarian -- i.e., who eats the type of recipes in this book, which were designed to appeal to omnivores. They're appealing and varied enough to appeal to darned near everyone. My one and only complaint (and the reason I gave it only 4 stars) is that it mentions that some brands are better than others, but gives no hint as to which the author prefers -- which means that *I* will have to try umpteen brands to find which one(s) work in a particular recipe, when the author could easily have provided a starting point, at least giving ideas of what to look for <sigh>. But that's my only quibble; I LOVE this book!

This is a very creative cookbook with vegetarian recipes for dishes which were not originally vegetarian. I have tested a few recipes, which all turned out great & delicious. This is a great cookbook for recipes for kids too!
