A Very Vegan Christmas by Rebecca Henry
Genre: Holiday Cookbook
Publication Date: November 8, 2019
I don’t cook. I don’t bake. If I don’t say that honestly at the beginning of this review, everyone that knows me will comment at the end of this post to remind me. So, WHY am I reviewing a cookbook?
I think that any cookbook that intrigued someone terrified of a kitchen deserves some praise!
What I Loved:
As I have previously stated, the kitchen is foreign to me, so upon opening this book, I was already in love. There is a section just to make sure I don’t mess anything up!
- Abbreviation information
- Cups to Grams conversions
- Fahrenheit to Celsius conversions
- Ingredients listings and suggestions on brands
- Essential Cooking Utensils list
Did you know that cups to grams conversions are different based on the type of ingredient you are measuring? Well I didn’t, but this cookbook made sure I knew so that I did everything right!
Inside The Book:
The different types of delicious foods that can be made are broken out into separate sections:
- Breakfast and Fruit
- Cookies and Cupcakes (MY PERSONAL FAVORITE!)
- Frosting and Toppings
Each recipe has an adorable name, a photo of the actual food, prep time, cook time, and approximate serving size.
Did I feel well-instructed?:
Rebecca Henry wrote this book for me, I’m sure of it! Or at least she wrote it with people like me in mind. Each recipe gave a bit more than just the instructions. There are wonderful comments that would help someone new to cooking with that ingredient.
If your dough is too crumbly and will not form into a ball, add just a dash of milk. You want the batter crumbly, not wet. A dash should do just fine.”White Christmas Snowball Cookies, A Very Vegan Christmas by Rebecca Henry
It is very important not to have the skillet too hot. Pancake batter hates a very hot burner.”Snowman Pankcakes, A Very Vegan Christmas by Rebecca Henry
To Cook or Not To Cook: While this cookbook is targeted to vegan cooks, these fun holiday recipes would be wonderful for anyone wanting to make some new holiday treats this year! I would recommend this cookbook to anyone!
Christmas has always been an important holiday in my home. It is a time for gathering in the kitchen to bake with family and friends. This book contains traditional, holiday recipes prepared from nondairy and cruelty free ingredients.
With 46 recipes to choose from, you will have a classic selection of recipes to inspire your little Christmas elves or sugar plum fairies to gobble up their plates! Being a mom of two, and so no stranger to hosting Christmas parties for little ones, I understand the importance of presentation. If the food is fun and engaging, children and adults alike, will want to try vegan options. The recipes come with creative decorating ideas, party suggestions and enchanting holiday recipe names, to get your cute little Mrs. Claus helpers, eager to bake with you in the kitchen.
