Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar: 100 Dairy-Free Recipes for Everyone's Favorite Treats

By Isa Chandra Moskowitz, Terry Hope Romero
Da Capo Lifelong Books - 2009

More awesome recipes from the Moskowitz/Romero team. I've tried a couple dozen of the recipes and they're all perfect. And as usual there's plenty of great cookie porn to go along with the recipes.


Tahini Lime Cookies
Caramel Pecan Bars
Chocolaty Crinkle Cookie
Deluxe Cocoa Brownies
Peanut Butter Chocolate Pillows

And not to be boring, but the recipe I use the most in here is the chocolate chip cookies. They are the perfect, chewy chocolate chip cookie. I will probably never use another recipe again.

Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook

By Isa Chandra Moskowitz, Terry Hope Romero
Da Capo Press - 2007

This is the cookbook that I turn to when I want something impressive to show off 'my' cooking skills. It's a huge doorstop of a vegan cookbook that has a recipe for any occasion or time of day or craving that you can think of. I think everyone needs at least one book like this to refer to for inspiration.

Highlights from the book:
1. Chickpea Cutlets smothered with Mustard Sauce
2. Mushroom and Spinach Strata with Home Fries for a super deluxe brunch
3. Baby Bok Choy with Crispy Shallots and Sesame Seeds
4. Chili Cornmeal-Crusted Tofu and Southwestern Corn Pudding

I could go on because I have a ton of favourites from this book, but those are a couple of them.
