yea, someone suggested Moosewood Cooks at Home! Another great one is Moosewood Daily Special, which is soups, side dishes, salads, and breads. It too has some fish/seafood dishes in all categories, and has suggested menus (as in, try combining this soup with this salad and this side dish or this bread for a complete meal, etc.). A GREAT book if you can find it is the Complete Vegetarian Cuisiene (sp) by Rose Elliot. She's British, so there's things like veggie steamed pudding and classic fruit cake and such, in addition to recipes like lentil shepherd's pie, eggplant provencale, great mac&cheese, spinach roulade with pink peppercorns, lots of healthy treats for kids, it is an AMAZING book with beautiful photos, great recipes, many super easy, full menu suggestions (a children's tea, a midsummer wedding, etc.). The first half of the book is all about ingredients - fruits, veggies, grains, herbs, dairy, cheeses, nuts, etc., basics about each, hints for preparing and cooking them, full color photos. Really a very useful book in addition to having many, many great recipes, lots of casseroles that can be prepared and frozen, and so on. Great book, one of my most prized cookbooks!
