    A Guide to Delicious Eating…, August 27, 1999
    By A Customer
    This review is from: 1,000 Vegetarian Recipes (Hardcover)

    My mother in-law bought me this book shortly after I married her son. I think she was a little worried that he wouldn’t eat well because he married a vegetarian. Our first year of marriage I used only this cookbook and a few recipes my mom had given me. I can’t tell you how exciting it was to sit down, read through a section of the book, write a grocery list for the items I would need, write out a dinner menu for the whole week and then call my friends to tell them what I was fixing on each night and ask them what sounded good to them so they could join us for dinner. I did this for several months until my evenings were filled with other activities. (Eating was definitely an activity when it came to using this book.) I have enjoyed every recipe I have used from this book. And they’re so easy!! Here are a few of my recommendations (I don’t have page numbers in front of me): The Barbecue Red Beans, Corn and Rice; Manicotti; Fajitas; Falafel; Hummus; Black Bean Hummus; and so many more. My only problem with some of the recipes is that I’m not a big salt eater and so I changed a few of the measurements on some recipes. And also, because she uses a lot of cheese (which is my favorite food) I gained a lot of weight that year. I do love the fact that she doesn’t suggest using lowfat or non-fat foods to make the recipes but use caution. This is a “must have” cookbook if you love eating really good food!!

    The best Cookbook I’ve ever owned., March 24, 1999
    By A Customer
    This review is from: 1,000 Vegetarian Recipes (Hardcover)

    1,000 Vegetarian Recipes got me started cooking and I haven’t stopped since. The difficulty with most cookbooks is that if you are a vegetarian you must seek and sort out the recipes which don’t use some sort of animal flesh product. 1,000 Vegetarian Recipes makes it simple – every single recipe is meatless – therefore appropriate for my household. Carol Gelles also has a coded system for the different types of vegetarian diets (Lacto-Ovo, Lacto, Ovo and Vegan). She even includes a review of nearly every recipe and alternative ways of making them. I’ve gone from being a non cooking person to being known for my great talents in the kitchen. My secret being this one book! I’m planning to make every single recipe. I also recommend it to everyone I know. It’s the best thing that ever happened to our kitchen.

    Single Guy Says YUM!, March 10, 2000
    By A Customer
    This review is from: 1,000 Vegetarian Recipes (Hardcover)

    As a single male living alone, my average meals usually consisted of hot dogs, corn chips and soda. Then I met this girl (a vegan). I soon found myself on the web looking for vegetarian recipes when Carol Gelles’s book caught my eye. I liked the idea of having 1000 possibilities to woo my lady with. I first tried Springtime Pasta (page 191) A BIG HIT! Then I tried Mexicali Stew (page 142) it was VERY EASY! For desert, I tried the Apple-Strawberry Tart (page 524). It must have worked as we will be married in the fall! Thank you Carol Gelles! I look forward to trying many other tempting recipes in the future and hope to see more books from you soon.
