There aren't a lot of recipes I use from this book...except for the ones I can't do without. The gumbo recipe was one of my husband's favorites, as was black-eyed peas Virginia style.

I'd take any nutritional guidance in the book with a grain of salt, but it's still good advice. ( )

A classic vegetarian cookbook. Like all good cookbooks it reflects the personal cooking style of the author. This one tends to lean heavily on whole grains and buttermilk. My favorite recipes are "Whole Beet Borscht" p152, "Green Potatoes for Six" p206, "Baked Zucchini" p 216, and "Lasagna al Forno" p256 ( )

I love this cookbook, even though I don't use it as much as I used to. It has fantastic nutritional information in the book (a section which is missing from the mini paperback version), and the bread recipes are fantastic.

highly recommend! ( )

I still have my original copy of the old Laurel's Kitchen. The recipes in this one are lower fat and slightly updated. Also, it's easier to handle and read the larger paperback in the kitchen. I still go back to my original copy, since it's the one I read from cover to cover and am most familiar with where to find things.

What I like most about this book (original and new editions) is how much they cover about being a vegetarian. I still use it as a reference to look up things about nutrition (like what vegetarian foods are high in iodine, etc.) although the recipes aren't nearly as interesting to me these days.
