Sinfully Vegan

Lois Dieterly released a revised and updated version of Sinfully Vegan last year. I've had the original probably since it's 2003 release and it has the distinct honor of containing the recipe that convinced my brother that soy milk is awesome. I made the Orange Creamsicle Smoothie for Mother's Day brunch many years ago and it tasted just like the Orange Julius drinks of our childhood.

One aspect I love about this book is that there are savory recipes in addition to dessert recipes. I definitely plan to make the Peach Salsa with Tortilla Triangles at some point. There are decadent recipes and healthful recipes, classic recipes and nontraditional ones. So far, I've prepared three recipes from the new version and each one has been lovely.

Peaches 'N' Cream Ice Cream (topped with test recipe granola from Dreena Burton's upcoming cookbook Let Them Eat Vegan)

Peanut Butter Balls (these were a gigantic hit at work)

Not pictured is the Rich Hot Cocoa, which is my go-to vegan hot cooca recipe and is omnivore approved. I'm looking forward to trying the many recipes I've marked in this book and to continuing to share the deliciousness.

Thanks! I've never looked at this book, and the recipes sound great!

This is one of those books I've been eying for years, but still haven't picked up. Good to know it's worth a shot- I'll have to finally check it out now.
