Once upon a time, there was a very lucky girl who decided to review cookbooks. All of a sudden her mailbox (I’m talking the retro snail mail kind of mailbox), was full of amazing, exciting, ridiculously fun (nerd alert!), vegan cookbooks.
The next cookbook up for review is Plant-Powered Families by Dreena Burton. You may know Dreena from her blog Plant-Powered Kitchen or perhaps you already own one of her earlier cookbooks Let Them Eat Vegan!, Eat, Drink, & Be Vegan, Vive Le Vegan!, or The Everyday Vegan. Yes, that’s right, Dreena is no newbie to cookbook writing, she has 5 vegan cookbooks on the market! I am thinking this girl knows a thing or two about cooking up some plants.
I haven’t met Dreena in person yet, (one day!) but I am sure she must be one of the most loveliest of all people. I remember when I first started blogging, I probably had like 10 followers, one of whom I call mom, and I wrote this post 1 Year Vegan. Dreena came across my story, read it, and tweeted at me that she liked it!
Someone so influential in the vegan world took the time to read my story, I felt like a superstar that day. And so the love of blogging began…
Plant-Powered Families focuses on healthy, kid-friendly recipes. I don’t have kids yet, but the inner kid in me (which I sometimes think makes up about 75% of me), was jumping with joy when I received this book. Simple, yummy, easy, and healthy recipes. I’m talking vegan cheesy dips, quick pastas, veggie burgers, sloppy joes, fries, pudding, cookies, granola bars. All things kids (and I) love, and all things made with health in mind. Applause please.
