I own many vegan cookbooks, and I borrow a little from each of them when I cook. But there are a few cookbooks I use over and over again and would encourage you to get. I don't really want to post recipes from cookbooks here because I think we should support vegan chefs with our money, but I will tell you what recipes work and which ones don't. Here are my top three recommendations (all available on Amazon):
1. Vegan With a Vengeance
A great collection with fresh ideas for every meal from breakfast to dinner. I use this several times a week. And, the ideas in here have spawned many original creations.
2. Vegan Lunchbox

I love the Vegan Lunchbox blog (you can order the book from there as well), and found this book a fantastic resource for the kids' school lunches and ours as well.
3. Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World

This book has saved birthdays and family events (with non-vegans) because the recipes are so tasty and pleasing for all (who doesn't enjoy fat and sugar?). I used the recipes in here to make these cupcakes for my son's 4th birthday party (he wanted replicas of the race cars in the opening sequence of Disney's movie "Cars."

great blog!

We enjoy many of the same cookbooks. Today we will be baking 2 batches of Mucho Margarita cupcakes - one with tequila for the over 18 crowd

Our 3 yr old is obsessed with the movie cars - your creativity with these cupcakes blows my mind!!
