I can't get enough of Mollie Katzen's recipes! I tried several of those in this book, and they turned out all very good, some of them quite delicious in fact. The concept of the book, a series of menus, does not work well for me as I almost always cook only simply for my little family, but I am sure it could be very useful to other people. What I like most about this type of cooking is that it's so homely and simple! But again, this is a personal opinion as I don't do fancy cooking. I would recommend any of Mollie's books to vegetarian and non-vegetarian cooks. They have totally shaped all my cooking over the years. There are no pictures in this book; this does not bother me, but I know some who are bothered by this. Also, there are a lot of recipes; this book can keep you entertain for a long, long time.
