Ordering new cookbooks - poll

Amazon has Veganomicon for $16.50 right now (40% off).  I am going to buy it this week but want to get free shipping so I need to buy another book to make my order total $25.  Please vote for your 2 favorite books!  I am even thinking about ordering Vegan Express even though it is not out yet because I have read good things about it.  I really want books I am going to use though, not sit on the shelf and collect dust.  Thanks for voting!  ;D

Although not strictly vegan, I've also just purchased a book by Madhar Jaffries (sp?) of veggie recipes from around the world, which is an A-Z of of fabulous veggies.

Kikoloa - you should post your favorite recipes from that in the NonVegan Cookbook Club:

Quintess - I hate when cookbooks say things like "this recipe only takes 15 minutes!" but then the ingredient list has "chopped carrots, diced onions, de-veined kale." That's cheating! It's like when a 2-bedroom apartment with a large closet is listed as 3-bedroom  >:(

OK....shameless plug, but I have been slaving over my own cookbook for the past year, and it is FINALLY about 95% done! It should be ready by early spring. Over 200 delectable, tried and true vegan yummy recipes.

Aside from my recipes, I don't have a favorite cookbook, although I have heard Veganomicon is quite good.
Anyone have any tips on things you all would like to see in a cookbook that you haven't seen before????
If so, let me know before I am finished....

That's so cool!  Congrats!

Umm, I really like when recipes have an "approximate prep time".  Like, when I look through a cookbook for inspiration, I look at a recipe name, look at ingredients, then see *about* how long the whole thing'll take.  I hatehatehate having to read through all of the directions to figure out the timing. 

good call TKitty!

I love Bryanna Clark Grogan and Dreena Burton--- I would go with their books before anyone else's and then build from there with other ones like VWAV, etc....
