Cooking is fun again!

Sometimes it takes the purchase of a new cookbook or the discovery of a new web site to spark those creative juices and get one cooking tasty foods again.

In my case, it was the discovery of Isa Chandra Moskowitz and her Post Punk Kitchen cable-access TV show and web site:
and her cookbook, Vegan With A Vengeance.

For too many months now I was cooking the same old bland and blah foods - lentil loaves, beans & rice with variations of tomato based sauces. But once I found Isa, cooking is fun again and I have a very stuffed hubby.

I've already made her Mashed Potatoes and Punk Rock Garbanzo Bean Gravy a number of times, made up 3 different batches of vegan cupcakes, each one more delicious than the next (Luckily she also has a cupcake book coming out later this year), and have had baked or fried tofu in more ways than I knew existed. Heck, her seitan recipe alone is worth the price of the book! No more "brainy" or rubbery seitan but delicious, slicable loaves!

NAYY, just a very happy cook with a very happy hubby.

Does anyone else have a vegan cookbook they can report on?
