I can't and won't say it's my FAVORITE, but it is where two of my favorite dishes come from. Veganomicon by Isa Chandra Moskowich and Terry Hope Romero. I learned how to make the most perfect Snobby Joe. I have made this recipe so many times now that I don't even have to look at the recipe. They are so amazing, and since I am just me, I always have tons of leftovers, and I enjoy turning the Joe mix into something new. In the winter, I usually make these every week. Not only delicious, but super inexpensive. Another favorite of mine are the Lemony Greek potatoes. Another recipe I don't need to look at anymore. I do cut down the amount of oil to about two tablespoons, but other than that I make them as is, and they are amazing! They are lemony, and garlicky and just one of my favorite ways to eat potatoes. And your house/apartment will smell so amazing! The funny thing is I don't own my own copy of Veganomicon. I checked it out from the library when I lived in Erie PA. Cool and encouraging fact: during the time I lived in Erie, the library actually had to get a new copy of this book. I remember the first time I checked it out, it was looking a little "loved". I didn't mind the dog ears and stains, it made me feel connected. Anyway, maybe a year and many borrows later. I noticed a brand spanking new copy!

I know both of these cookbooks are older, but to be totally honest the last cookbook I bought was years ago at a used bookstore. Most of the cookbooks I use are checked out from the library, or now that I'm back in Seattle any I buy will be from a used bookstore. Cookbooks are an expense/luxury that just isn't really in my budget. Hopefully someday! It's been fun going down memory lane, and while I was leafing through 500 Vegan Recipes I found several more recipes to mark that I want to try! I can't wait to learn about some more vegan cookbooks today!
