Great Books and Some Links

Well, it's been a while again....but if you frequent my OTHER blog you know why. I've been sick for over a week now, and my little guy had a horrible accident that left him badly burned, details are posted on the other blog.

So, I haven't given much thought to which if any recipes to post here, but I did find some great books I had my library order for me. The first, I've been wanting for a while and finally got it and can't wait to feel better and get busy baking!

Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World...all I can say is YUM!! I am literally drooling over the photos and descriptions in this one! There are some pretty creative ideas in here like Green Tea Cupcakes, Smores, and Banana Split. There is a Sexy Vanilla with Berries that I probably am going to try first.

The other cookbook is Eat, Drink and Be Vegan. Now I have to admit here that I had one of her other cookbooks and honestly there wasn't much in there I wanted to try. NOT the case with this one. Both my husband and I were drooling over several of the recipes including the Tamari-Roasted Chickpeas, and Avocado & Pinto Bean Enchiladas.

My library was able to get both of these for me. Check your library's online data base and see if you can get them too! Meanwhile if you are looking for some good recipes to try now, visit these blogs:

Veggie Tables

Iyengar's Kitchen

The Vegetarian Epicure

Hopefully I will be back by mid-week with some new recipes and ideas. We have to go to the burn clinic Tuesday for my son, so I doubt I will return before then, but when I do I promise to have some yummy recipes to try!!
