Yes, I have that one pixie

If you have Veggiestan: A Vegetable Lover's Tour of the Middle East (A Middle Eastern Cookbook) you will also love this one

Lots of lovely food that can be made without a trip to a specialist Middle Eastern shop. I might give the Lambs brain recipe a miss though

Like me and bento food, Pix. This term looks to be very busy so making my bento food in the morning will be a must, as will getting up earlier!

I miss my veggie years, but they are also the years that saw me top out at 95kg. I loved the food and how I felt about myself as a veggie, but I am healthier now, I must admit. Must be all the fish! LOL

The older we get the more difficult it is to shift the pounds...I have found that I can't cope with too much yeast bread...the soda breads with lots of grains seem to suit me better....have the yeasty ones as a treat now and again....x

I think there is a lot of writing in this cookery book. It is a bit expensive too...
I came tonight because I do miss you guys on the cooking forum. I really have no excuse of not passing by, except that I am less on Az. But as you are not coming to us, I guess we have to come to you. (You know, if the mountain does not come blah blah blah...)
I promise, cross my heart, I will be coming more often.
I hope you are fine, little naughty Pixie :) and everyone else.
A happy new year from me...

Do you think you're getting to the stage where you really don't need any more books. You must have every cuisine and type of cooking covered.

What you really need to happen is for there to be an alien invasion and for the aliens to bring out their own cookbooks

My friend bought my dog some gourmet liver bones..all made in a little deli....the dog is mad for them frenchie! So I'm not telling her about that book!xx

Hi Frenchie - long time no see. I might have to consider that book as our dog has to be on a special diet - the only protein he is allowed is fish (the Ori diet), and he cannot have any cereals (including rice) so all the carbs have to come from potatoes and vegetables.

Bearman says:
We found some special treats for our dog - pieces of dried fish skin wrapped around sticks of dried sweet potato - they absolutely stink but the dog goes nuts for them.

My friends dog (a Bernese mountain dog) sound as though she has a similar problem, she loves those treats, but they are a bit pricey aren't they.especially when all the other dogs get a whiff of them. She practically gets mugged. My Tibetan is having problems, but she won't be bothered about rice being banned. She hates it. Even if it has curry on. Mind I bet she can't remember the taste now. She has had so many foods crossed off the list. Hope your body adjusts soon.

Bearman says:
Yes they are pricey, but he only gets them very occasionally when we have to clean his ears or give him an injection. If your Tibetan is having dietary/allergy problems, try the fish diet. According to our very expensive specialist vet, dogs seem to stay much healthier on this than any other food.

Pixie - you seem to be able to find a recipe book for every occasion. If I told you I had a Jewish vegan friend who was gluten and lactose intolerant, would you have something to help?
