With her down home 'girlfriend in the kitchen' vibe, Jeanine (and her husband, Jack), bring readers inside their home kitchen where they share their passion for plant-based recipes. This beautiful, inspirational and doable cookbook is packed with stunning colour photos and includes season-specific recipes featuring a wide range of produce. These are recipes for the average home cooks who want to focus their diet on vegetarian or vegan options with ingredients can be sourced from local food stores or farmer's markets. Donofrio also includes great tips sections including: her favourite kitchen tools, tips for protein sources and a great 'Waste Not, Want Not' section that details inventive uses for those odds and sods like broccoli stalks, beet greens and the cores of cauliflower so there's less waste and more taste in your dishes. With our home boasting one vegetarian and a couple who enjoy eating less meat, we are making and enjoying more vegetarian meals. I appreciate the wide range of recipes in this cookbook and how big-name veggies, like sweet potatoes, cauliflower and squash, take centre stage and that meat substitutes aren't the focus. That said, I personally found this cookbook to be more vegan-focused than vegetarian, which doesn't fit our family quite as well as I had hoped. Overall, this is a beautiful and versatile cookbook for vegetarian or vegan home cooks, or for those of us who just want to eat a little less meat without giving up taste and creativity in the kitchen. With these easy to use recipes, home cooks will be making healthy, fresh and wonderful tasting meat-free dishes for the whole family. My top recipes from this cookbook: Sweet Potato and Sage Breakfast Biscuits Lemon Risotto with Trumpet Mushroom 'Scallops' Jack's Garlic Pretzel Knots (these are 'knot' to be missed!) Disclaimer: My sincere thanks to the publisher for providing me with a complimentary advanced copy of this title in exchange for my honest review.

    A number of the recipes look tasty (I haven’t tried any out yet) but I read this book mainly because reading cookbooks is oddly soothing for me. I actually don’t even particularly enjoy cooking, though I’ve been cooking for many years for my family. We’ve been mostly vegetarian for years, and many evenings eat vegan suppers, so I’m always on the hunt for different ways to make vegetables and legumes interesting. I might try a few of the recipes eventually.

    I received this as a Christmas present and it probably wasn't a cookbook I would pick out for myself, being neither vegetarian or vegan. Beautiful photos for every recipe and some great tips throughout the book. I plan to try several recipes, but most of the recipes just were not to my liking or cooking ability.

    It's funny; when I think about my experience with this cookbook, not even remembering its title, the word that comes to mind is "Love." Every part of this book — from the thoughtful, cursive notes in margins to the abundance of photos for *each* recipe to the holistic kitchen guidance — makes me, as the reader and home cook, feel loved and deeply cared for.

Every part of this book — from the thoughtful, cursive notes in margins to the abundance of photos for *each* recipe to the holistic kitchen guidance — makes me, as the reader and home cook, feel loved and deeply cared for. This is a cookbook that knows its place on the shelf. For imaginative, veggie-forward dishes organized in a stunning, almost-magazine-like display of color and design, look no further. Style: Vivacious vegetarian, with novel tricks sprinkled throughout Sections: Breakfast, Snacks & Starters, Soups, Salads, For Dinner, Side Dishes, Desserts, Drinks, Homemade Extras, Essential Sauces & Spreads Recipes with photos: All 102 recipes had photos, and many had multiple demonstrative photos. A+ with extra credit, Love & Lemons! Pros: I loved the very-visual asides in this cookbook for things like a how-to on freezing cooked grains for future use, grilling guide for most vegetables, a giant visual recipe grid of salad dressings, and creative uses for carrot tops, corn cobs, and cauliflower cores. This book offers a crash course on vegetarianism and includes many (helpfully labeled) vegan and gluten-free recipes. Cons: I can't think of any. This is a very well executed cookbook. No, thank you: Breakfast polenta bowls with chimichurri (The chimichurri was bracingly acidic, and although the tartness was counteracted by the soft roasted parsnips and sweet potatoes, this dish was not my favorite.) More, please: Moroccan-spiced carrot salad with lentils (A perfect wedding of roasted and fresh ingredients with dazzling mint, cumin, and coriander flavors.); miso quinoa bowls with kale & eggs (A feel-good meal, featuring everyone's favorite: avocado.); cozy vegan mushroom & white bean potpie (This dish took significant time and work, but the results were exceptional. It would be perfect as a vegan main dish for Thanksgiving or another special occasion.); sweet potato and sage breakfast biscuits (Fluffy, beautiful, and tasty. With a little planning ahead to roast and mash a sweet potato the day before I baked these, this recipe was a breeze.)

    I definitely liked this one more than I did the previous Love & Lemons book, buuuuut I still have issues with the layout. First off, the things I like: For one thing, the photos in this one are super appealing and make me want to eat almost everything! And I also love the variations--four or five versions of something on one page? More of this, please! Most of the recipes included seem pretty easy, too, and having made a few things from the blog, I know they probably taste great as well. BUT.

Most of the recipes included seem pretty easy, too, and having made a few things from the blog, I know they probably taste great as well. BUT. Once again, I find the print version really difficult to cook from. The font is very small, and very light, and it's got that wall of text thing going on in the instructions. Like, why would you put the little intro text in bold so you can read that really easily, and have the actual recipe printed so light you can barely see it unless it's like a foot away from your face? Maybe I'm just old and my eyes suck, but I don't think it's that. It just feels like too much effort went into the prettiness of the design and not enough into the practicality of it, you know? So. While I do really like the several Love & Recipes I've found online and made, I think the books could use improvement. But maybe it's just me?

    In my mind, getting supper ready quickly on weeknights is essential. This is where cookbooks like Love & Lemons Every Day become so important because what Jeanine Donofrio is offering is plant-based, seasonal recipes that are perfect for any weeknight.

This is where cookbooks like Love & Lemons Every Day become so important because what Jeanine Donofrio is offering is plant-based, seasonal recipes that are perfect for any weeknight. I really appreciate how she details the key points of her food philosophy -- the importance of seasonal cooking, information on plant-based proteins, a guide to grains and legumes, root-to-tip cooking, general cooking tips, and, her favourite kitchen tools and equipment. For newer home cooks, having this information up front means that your time in the kitchen will decrease and you'll have more success. I'm not such a new home cook but having reminders is always helpful! The recipes are organized into 10 chapters: Breakfast, Snacks & Starters, Soups, Salads, For Dinner, Side Dishes, Desserts, Drinks, Homemade Extras, and, Essential Sauces & Spreads. She even offers some "special occasion menus" at the end of the book full of delicious combinations for any celebration. Donofrio's first cookbook is one that I recommend to people because it's full of fresh ideas on how to make the most of plant-based recipes, but you don't have to be vegetarian or vegan to fully appreciate it! I think her recipes are flexible enough to suit any dietary need. For my vegetarian family, I love having new inspiration to liven up weeknight meals but there's lots of inspiration for those looking to increase their vegetable intake or looking for recipe candidates for "Meatless Monday." When choosing recipes to try I look for recipes that will entice my husband and daughter to try new combinations -- such as the recipe for Sweet Potato Wedges w/ Farro and Tahini. Roasted sweet potatoes are always a guaranteed crowd-pleaser -- an easy way to hook a kid at meal time. For my husband, who could literally eat rice at every meal, I like to use different grains to keep it interesting. The herbed farro here has a nice chew to it and it tastes great warm or cold. Topped off with the most delicious Lemon Tahini Dressing it made for a great lunch! Since tahini can have a slightly bitter flavour, I opted to serve it "Sally Albright-style" (on the side) so that my daughter could just dip her wedges in it. Speaking of sweet potatoes, Donofrio's recipe for Sunshine Sweet Potato Curry is amazing because she uses roasted sweet potato puree in the curry sauce. The curry sauce in this dish has a great flavour -- sweetness from the sweet potatoes and their creaminess is paired perfectly with the coconut milk! A squeeze of lime takes a bit of the richness out of the sauce and brightens it up. I served it on basmati rice with naan bread. Another easy meal that made enough for leftovers, which is always a bonus in my mind. And, Donofrio is correct! The curry tasted even better on the second day! For those concerned with eliminating gluten from their diets, this book has many great gluten-free alternatives to favourite gluten-rich foods. Her recipe for Apple Cinnamon Oat Muffins is great because it uses oat and almond flour which really create a moist crumb in these gluten-free muffins. As for muffins, I could take them or leave them, but these muffins could be the best ones I've ever had! I baked up a batch Sunday morning so that we could enjoy them for breakfast throughout the week (a great suggestion from Donofrio). She also has a superb gluten free cracker recipe. After reading the recipe headnotes for the Everyday Sesame Brown Rice Crackers I knew that if these crackers were as good as they looked in the book, I'd have a homemade alternative to those addictive sesame sticks (a huge food vice of mine)! Donofrio's recipe is perfectly addicting! Such a wonderful snack and these crackers would be great to serve to company with a side of dip or a smear of spread! We really enjoyed her recipe for Cherry Pie Chia Parfaits. Sweetened using a small amount of maple syrup, I found that these dessert parfaits were the perfect healthy-ish indulgence for my daughter. She also enjoyed layering her parfait with the chia pudding, granola, and thawed frozen cherries – a great activity for younger cooks. The extra flakes of coconut really highlight the creamy coconut milk-based chia pudding. These would also be great to serve at a weekend brunch -- they could either be made ahead of time or you could have a parfait bar for guests to make their own! I'm finding Love & Lemons Everyday just as useful as her first book, with so many produce-centric recipes and loads of meal inspiration, it's a cookbook I'll be glad to have on hand. With over 100 recipes you can find many seasonal, plant-based meals that are great for casual weeknight cooking. Please note that this review is an excerpt of one posted to www.shipshapeeatworthy.wordpress.com I would like to take this opportunity to thank Penguin Canada for providing me with a free, review copy of this book. I did not receive monetary compensation for my post, and all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

    EVERYthing in this book is amazing; I think I like it even better than the first. Almost every recipe is vegan or very easily veganized.

However, there are vegan substitutes suggested when possible. Delish cheese substitutes, and not the tasteless cardboard crap. Stumbled across this author when I googled how to cook spaghetti squash (it had been a while) and found Spaghetti Squash with Kale/Chickpeas. OMG!!! This was so DELISH. I loved this dish so much I've been making it once a week. Tag favorites. This author's website is awesome. There's a picture of all the ingredients to be used as well as the dish with easy to follow directions. Beautiful photography. Makes me hungry and want to rush to my kitchen to make these recipes. Because this cookbooks focus is more plant based recipes it was my first choice and I wasn't disappointed. So often times I buy a plant based cookbook and it's full of tasteless recipes, over abundance of soy, or everything is covered in sriracha for flavor. Extremely disappointing. This book was a refreshing pure delight for this plant based girl. This is the author's 2nd cookbook. Her 1st looks to be as much of a winner and one I'll have to try. I consider this book a read in progress because I have so many recipes still to try. Happy eating!

    This cookbook is one of the best cookbooks out there. A picture for every recipe, great organization by meal type (unlike its predecessor), great flavor (which I find lacking in other vegan/vegetarian cooking), and most recipes I've tried took only a half hour. While being vegetarian almost every recipe is vegan or easily vegan which is great if you are trying to eat more plants (only 4 are not).

I also found that its pretty easy to do these recipes with reduced oil if that is your jam. Also so many recipes here and they all have a good variety of vegetables (which I prefer when I go to the effort of making a recipe). Overall no complaints and I highly recommend. As the name suggest the flavor profile is very lemony, limey, and vinegary. Cilantro and parsley are common ingredients.

    It's clear that people's love for plant-forward recipes is gaining momentum, and this fad will soon become a fact of life with ever growing focus on the (lack of) sustainability and carbon footprints from the traditional food industry. Plant-based meals are here to stay, and why not? In addition to planet Earth's ecology, who doesn't want to indulge in healthy eating these days?

Plant-based meals are here to stay, and why not? In addition to planet Earth's ecology, who doesn't want to indulge in healthy eating these days? You'll remember Jeanine Donofrio from her famous Mediterranean flavoured plant-based dips, that boast simplicity, without compromising sophistication. I've never come across a cookbook that I go to back and back again for tried-and-true recipes, like one of my faves, Grapefruit, Quinoa & Fennel Salad with mint. I've loved Jeanine's easy simple recipes right from the moment I tried them for myself at an event hosted by Chapters Indigo a few years ago. It's not hard to see why her recipes are an instant hit. So what can we expect in LOVE & LEMONS EVERY DAY? A lot of different combinations of meals...some that will be variations of your favourite comfort foods, and others that will inspire you to try something new. Love lasagna? Sure you do! Who doesn't? But consider this: lasagna in a soup. Seems an impossible feat, but Jeanine Donofrio has found a way to do just that. After all, sometimes, you just don't feel like going through the effort of making lasagna, but wouldn't mind the hearty flavours of this comfort food. The great thing about cookbook recipes is that you are introduced to new flavours of the world, without having to leave your kitchen (except for the grocery store to pick up the ingredients, of course!). I didn't know what muhammara was until I saw a recipe for Beet Muhammara Dip. For those who didn't know either, it's a spiced Middle Eastern red pepper walnut dip, which has hint of fragrant coriander and bold flavours to boot. Of course, it's not just about the recipes. There's also a learning component associated with LOVE & LEMONS EVERY DAY. For example, there's a section called "Wait - What About Protein?" Here Jeanine tells us about the different plant-based proteins that you can use in preparing a balanced meal for your family. What do you do with your broccoli stalks, carrot tops and cauliflower cores? Jeanine Donofrio's attitude is much like mine "Waste not, want not", and so she shares some of her favourite ways to use "scrap parts". If the title of Jeanine Donofrio's cookbook didn't give it away, you should know that all the recipes have that dash of lemon in them. It makes every dish approachable and delectable --and from a health perspective, adding lemon helps reduce the need for salt (sodium) without sacrificing flavour. It goes without saying, but important to repeat, that none of Jeanine Donofrio's recipes are complicated. In LOVE & LEMONS EVERY DAY, each recipe also comes with a helpful everyday tip, like how a particular recipe can be made quicker (quinoa!), or which salads make great next-day desk lunches (the peach and pole bean salad, and soba salad!). A great cookbook to pick up for your summer entertainment.

    I’m not familiar with her blog, but Jeanine Donofrio’s second cookbook (this book) is exactly what it bills itself to be: “More than 100 bright, plant-forward recipes for every meal.” This cookbook strikes a great balance between basic and ambitious, and for me, it’s an inspiring presentation.

Many of these recipes involve methods that would be novel in my kitchen (homemade harissa, vegan ricotta, cauliflower steaks), and tools that I would need to purchase (mandoline for thin slices, food processor for “ricing” vegetables and puréeing sauces). However, Donofrio works hard to make her approach accessible to the notice. She breaks up her recipes with resource after resource: seasonal produce guide; cooking instructions for various grains; roasting temperatures for various veggies; freezing instructions for grains; a master chart of salad dressing types. The cookbook has a sunny, attractive and simple layout that also serves to encourage and inspire. The result is a creative but doable plant-forward collection of recipes that serves the home cook hoping to find new ways to serve vegetables.

    I loved this book so much that in the middle of reading a library copy (which I requested as soon as it was published) I bought my own copy! Both my daughter and I have been marking recipes we want to make, so there are stickers on almost every page. We have made a couple of the dishes already and they were delicious. What I value most are that many of the recipes are vegan and gluten-free, since my daughter can't eat dairy or gluten.

    This is a beautiful book. I like the size and feel of it, and the layout. I found a handful of recipes to try; I’d probably want to try more if I didn’t have so many warring tastebuds in our household. Not the cookbook for what I’d call our favorite flavor profiles, but that’s just a personal thing. I’d say it’s definitely for those who are already well stocked in the vegetarian cooking pantry, and are looking for what’s next.

    This recipe book was okay, but I think it's just not on par with my taste. I tried several recipes, but they ended up not being worth the trouble. Though the black bean taquitos were really good and the granola from the overnight oats recipe was amazing! The actual complete overnight oats was kinda terrible, but the granola was amazing. Otherwise, I didn't find any recipes I'd want to repeat and after a several 'meh's I didn't want to chance trying anymore. Not bad, but not my style either.

    A lovely book. I picked this up because we have friends that are vegetarian and I am always trying to expand my cooking routine with them. A few of these have become family faves and I love the seasonality focus. Worth adding to the cookbook collection!

    It feels like cheating to say I “read” a cookbook but I’ve really loved this and her other cookbook and want to remember them. Her website is also chock full of fun ways to get your veggies in. I appreciate that she often gives vegan substitutes in her recipes.

    I love that the recipes include vegan adaptations without being a fully vegan cookbook! It can be hard to find cookbooks with substitutions with that kind of flexibility. So many of the recipes are delicious & simple which I LOVE & need as a full time caregiver.
