Can someone recommend me a cookbook? I don't have a lot of time to cook, nor do I have access to exotic ingredients... but I do crave something a bit fancier from time to time--like a home made veggie burger or a good sauce to go with the meal.
The recipes have to be healthy--but not to the extent that my family won't eat anything I cook!
Looking forward to hearing your suggestions!
Thank you, I saw that one too on amazon. To be honest all the books by her looked great! I don't have a single vegan cookbook and I am really looking forward to getting started with my collection and being able to cook acceptable meals for others. (I cook for myself but mostly other people don't want to eat what I cook.)
I second the Veganomicon. It's my most-turned-to vegan cookbook. I also have her cookbook "The Vegan Brunch" which, honestly, disappointed me a little. I was looking to increase our breakfast menu a little but I found that a good number of the recipes called for soy, which we try to minimize. The "Veganomicon," though, has plenty of variety and everything we've tried has been really tasty. :)

I just saw this mentioned this morning. It is not yet released but it looks as if it might be helpful for your situation: (http://www.amazon.com/The-Kitchen-Divided-Semi-Vegan-Households/dp/157067292X/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1360764874&sr=8-9&keywords=the+kitchen+divided) The Kitchen Divided: Vegan Dishes for Semi-Vegan Households by Ellen Jaffe Jones
