You pick up a vegetarian cookbook and what do you find? Ingredients you've never heard of before from stores you've never been to before. Sound familiar?
The author of this cookbook, while living in Troy, Alabama, found it difficult to convince those mildly interested in vegetarianism to travel all the way to Montgomery to the nearest health food store. So she wrote this cookbook in order to provide the slightly interested with something doable for them.
If you can't find the ingredients in your local grocery store, they just aren't in this cookbook. That's almost all there is to it, except for one thing: Your grocery bill for these delicious, mouth-watering recipes will be a lot lower than if you had to buy specialty ingredients at a specialty store.
107 recipes fill its 120 pages. Find help with breakfasts and main dishes, salads and dressings, sauces and spreads, vegetables and desserts, soups and breads. There's also a section on meal planning and a section on reasons to consider vegetarianism.
The binding allows it to lay flat while you work. The cover is laminated so you can easily wipe it clean, which is mighty handy in the kitchen.
Have any friends you want to introduce to vegetarianism? Give this cookbook as a gift. The fact that every ingredient of the recipes is readily accessible at your friend's local grocery store will help persuade them to try out this healthy lifestyle.
Julianne Pickle used to be the head cook of the diet kitchen at Uchee Pines's health conditioning center. It was her task to provide tasty vegetarian meals for the guests. These guests would come with a variety of ailments. For those ailments the physicians would prescribe a variety of special diets. To cook in such a way that the guests, unaccustomed to such fare, would be pleased with the food required a special degree of skill. Julianne performed admirably.
It is from this rich background of experience that this cookbook was written.
Though a busy and devoted mother of four, Julianne still finds time to write and compose.

This is written so that the user can maintain a healthy, vegetarian diet without shopping at specialty, health food stores for most of the needed ingredients. This is a real plus for many, especially those who may not live in close proximity to such conveniences. An excellent book for your money.
