I usually find myself frustrated when it comes to cookbooks — whether they're calling for very expensive or hard-to-find ingredients, or expecting every kitchen to be decked out with the best culinary tools to date, I often struggle to find a recipe that sounds good and affordable. That's why I love Vegan With a Vengeance. Not only are all of Isa's recipes vegan, but she uses simple, affordable ingredients that won't leave you hungry or broke. This new edition has beautiful, glossy photographs of some of the most delicious foods, from decadent desserts to breakfast to her famous pizzas. This is a great way to learn and improve on your vegan cooking skills. Recommended By Tehya R., Powells.com
