I'm a meat eater who raised a vegetarian daughter so I spent years makinfg dishes that could make both carnivores and vegetarians happy, such as pasta that can have meat added separately, or chilli with lots of beans, peppers and onions, but then a separate pot so meat could be added to half the batch. Recently I've decided to veer more into recipes that were always intended to be vegetarian, not adapted to become vegetarian. Let me tell you there are some delicious vegetarian dishes in this book. I am especially in love with the Tomatoes and Potatoes Salad With Avocado-Dill Dressing. Even the confirmed meat eaters in my circle have eaten this salad and said "Man that salad was incredible!". Also getting good reviews from my family are a number of the grain, nut, egg dishes. Everything I've made from this book I've been happy with. I like flavorable meals with lots of seasoning and zip. I've been happy with everything in this book without feeling the need to add more seasoning. My only complaint is that each recipe doesn't have a photo. There is a photo section with 22 pictures but it would be much easier to get the idea of each dish if there was a photo placed with each recipe. Also there is no nutritional info for the recipes. But I do like that the estimated start-to-finish time is included for each recipe, and there are suggestions of which recipes to combine to make a complete meal. The only reason I'm giving this book four stars instead of 5 is the lack of photos. As for the recipes themselves, it's definitely a five star product.
