5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous Quality Phone, 8 Nov 2011
The phone feels substantial but not heavy. It's certainly a step up from the cheap plastic retro phones around these days. The ring is pleasant and old-fashioned and the cord is even wrapped in fabric. It looks just beautiful. Overall, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!, 27 Sep 2009
This review is from: Vegan Brunch (Paperback)
Vegan Brunch is delightful to look at and all of the recipes I've tried so far are fantastic. Despite the title, and as previous reviewers have mentioned, these are not recipes solely for brunch purposes. In fact, I've made the Chesapeake tempeh cakes for dinner several times (with mashed potatoes and broccoli) and they were amazing! I never stop getting compliments from friends and family when they try any of the food I make from this cookbook - and none of them are vegan! Highly recommended for anyone who loves fresh, delicious and inventive recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended!, 3 Jan 2009
This GRE book is fantastic! By far the best study tool I've found yet for the GRE. I took the test a couple of years ago using the Princeton Review books and my scores were decent. I recently took the test again a couple of months ago after using the Kaplan book and DOUBLED my math score, scored a perfect 6.0 on the writing and increased my verbal score by 80 points. If you're willing to put in the time, then this book is an excellent tool for scoring well on the GRE. There are full answer explanations for every problem, a handy section for vocab, and really helpful tips and strategies for each question type. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice pictures, but not a practical cookbook, 3 Jan 2009
This review is from: Great Chefs Cook Vegan (Hardcover)
Although this book is incredibly gorgeous to look at, the recipes presented in it are largely too complicated and time-consuming for the average person. It's wonderful to see the creativity and presentation of these chefs (who are not actually vegan, they are just cooking vegan recipes for the book) but overall it's not a practical cookbook. One recipe even calls for a home-use cotton candy machine. If you're looking to be impressed by what you could do if you were a five-star chef and had a limitless budget and access to all sorts of weird kitchen gadgets, or you just want to see pretty pictures of vegan food, then go for it. But for everyday vegans, this is not suitable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic and Unique!, 26 Jan 2008
Just a note: I have the American version of this cookbook.

I have had this cookbook for about 6 months and it is incredible! The recipes are easy to follow and the author gives substitutions for hard to find ingredients. The majority of the recipes don't take long to make and the dessert section is fantastic. The Fauxstess Cupcakes are especially delicious. The recipes are really unique and lots of fun to make. The author really emphasizes fresh ingredients and steers clear of using fancy gadgets and cookware. Overall, it's really enjoyable and accessible, even for people who are new to being vegan or who are not particularly skilled in the kitchen. I highly recommend it.
