    So I've already admitted that I'm in need of some inspiration in the kitchen. Well another fact is that I love my meat. Steaks, chicken and more... I'm quite a fan. When it comes to fruits and veggies, it's not that I don't like them. After all, I adore zucchini, squash, portebellas, tomatoes, strawberries, etc etc, but when it comes to accessorizing my meat meal with them my average idea is a bag of frozen steam veggies. And trust me after a while that gets dull. Then, with all that in my mind So I've already admitted that I'm in need of some inspiration in the kitchen. Well another fact is that I love my meat. Steaks, chicken and more... I'm quite a fan. When it comes to fruits and veggies, it's not that I don't like them. After all, I adore zucchini, squash, portebellas, tomatoes, strawberries, etc etc, but when it comes to accessorizing my meat meal with them my average idea is a bag of frozen steam veggies. And trust me after a while that gets dull. Then, with all that in my mind I see a cookbook called "The Meat Lover's Meatless Cookbook", what could be better?! I am in desperate need for suggestions and creative ideas to incorporate more vegetables and the idea of "vegetarian dishes carnivores will devour" is absolutely divine. Divided by seasons, there are 52 menus to choose from with both calm and exotic ideas. This is so much more than rabbit food! (With a recipe per week, this would make for a great Julia and Julie type personal challenge). Reading the intro about how the author came across an ideal for meatless meals through health concerns is not a new idea, but it is a refreshing one to take seriously. Learning about a 1918 cookbook with an effort to conserve food resources, including meat as well as the public health campaign from 2001 to have "meatless Mondays" is new to me and fascinating. Loving it. For my Sister B there are the GL = Gluten-Free and for my SisterL there are KIDDO = Kid friendly meals (which with 6+ kids might be handy...). There are also V = Vegan for those "crazy" people and more. I love the seasonal outlook to this cookbook. It seems so often with other books and recipes I will find that they say to use it at the best time of year for ____ when it's in season. Yet, not having a bachelor of science in farming (or agriculture) I can never keep it straight on what vegetable is in season and when. This helps! The Pantry Lexicon is awesome and worthy of purchase on it's own. I'm just glad it is included here. Oh and for those that need a little more enticement there is a multiple page spread of colored cuisine photos mid-book. *Thanks to Lara Simpson of Perseus Books for providing a copy for review.*

    I was fortunate enough to take a fabulous cooking class Kim O'Donnal taught at PCC Market in her home town of Seattle. It was a wonderful dinner based on the Meatless Monday movement utilizing the delicious recipes in her cookbook. Please trust me when I tell you the recipe for her corn bread alone makes the book worth the cost.

I tried several of her dishes and they were all delicious. I'm looking forward to trying the twice-baked sweet potatoes and her Shepherd's Pie with Chard-Lentil Filling (Shepherd's Pie is one of my family's favorite dishes so if I'm able to make it meatless and still have happy customers, I'll know this is a cookbook to keep on the shelf in the kitchen).

    PROS: The recipes are easy to follow. The recipes are broken into meals as opposed to just separate recipes, so you can easily meal plan. The book makes the timing very easy, as it gives advice on the order to cook the separate recipes for each meal. The food tastes delicious. CONS: So many dirty dishes! Overall: I'm going to buy this cookbook. The four recipes I've sampled leave me feeling affirmed that the other recipes in the book will be equally delicious.

Overall: I'm going to buy this cookbook. The four recipes I've sampled leave me feeling affirmed that the other recipes in the book will be equally delicious. It was nice to have a book that left the meat out and focused on the vegetables, in ways that go beyond a green salad or steamed green beans. I like how the cookbook was arranged, though more pictures would only have made it better!

    I am really enjoying cooking my way through this book. The recipes are divided by season, which makes it easy to find a sizzling meal for a cold night and helps make good use of seasonal produce. The recipes are also grouped together by meal; main dish and sides all together, which I have found to be very handy. I bought this book for my husband as a Christmas gift (a sort of "ha-ha" gift. I am a vegetarian and he eats a hamburger everyday.) I didn't expect to like it so much myself! There have I am really enjoying cooking my way through this book.

Additional note: As much as I do appreciate a vegetarian cookbook that is not focused weight loss and counting calories, I my taste preference is to use about half the fat/oil suggested in most of these recipes.

    I was excited to get this cookbook, as I'm always on the lookout for good meatless options. However, the recipes were pretty general and similar to ones I've found elsewhere. I did like four in particular, that sounded particularly yummy: Caramelized Onion, Pear and Goat Cheese Filling for a Savory Crostata (free-form tart); Roasted Cauliflower with Tahini Sauce; Pepita-Crusted Tofu and Red Lentil Dal with Cumin-Fried Onions and Wilted Spinach. 2 stars.

    A great addition to the cook's bookshelf . . . at our house we're trying to do Meatless Mondays, so this provides us with some delightful alternatives to the pasta dishes or my other constant "go-to" vegetarian recipes that my family would actually eat. Did find the layout of some of the recipes, which spread out over multiple pages, a bit hard to follow with all of the flipping. A good resource, nonetheless!

    For those cooks looking to keep “Mr. Sausage” happy, O’Donnel recommends starting with a Meatless Monday routine (which, it turns out, is also environmentally friendly – you’ll have to read about it.) She’s got recipes for a tempeh hoagie, tofu barbecue and chick pea “crab cakes” designed to make you (eventually) forget about the real thing. We can’t say we’d be down with everything on the list, but the once a week meal concept is a good way to start for the uninitiated.

    One of my go-to cookbooks for vegetarian fare. I've made recipes for Thanksgiving, Christmas and several birthday dinners from Kim's excellent book. She has a way of coaxing flavor out of simple vegetables and elevating them from simple to simply satsifying. One of my go-to cookbooks for vegetarian fare.

    I loved the way she starts each recipe with a story and I took note of a handful of recipes to try. I have started one to two meatless nights a week as well and am always looking for hardy recipes to please my meat eating husband - This book definitely had a few!

    There were some good ideas in here, but also a lot of filler (does anyone really need a recipe for grilled cheese?!) and a lot of "meh". There were some good ideas in here, but also a lot of filler (does anyone really need a recipe for grilled cheese?!) and a lot of "meh".

    I haven't made any of the recipes yet, but they definitely seem hearty and satisfying enough for meat lovers. We definitely need more cook books like this!

    Recipes look good, but too long and fussy.
