Good follow up to American Gods
»
This is a good novel that works as a follow up to American Gods, also by Neil Gaiman. However, if you're expecting it to be a sequel, you might be disappointed. It is better to go into this thinking of it as a related story. Also, if you haven't read American Gods, you will easily be able to understand this.
Good story, terrible production values
»
Neverwhere is an excellent story, and the parts are well cast. However, this was obviously was made with a very small budget. I've seen older Doctor Who, and the production values are on par with that. However, if you can, try to get past how it looks and just enjoy the story. Writer Neil Gaiman provides commentary on the episodes, and it's worth listening to.
Good starter cookbook
»
This was the first vegan cookbook I ever owned. It's definitely a good starter book. The recipes are fairly simple, and most of the ingredients are pretty easy to find. There's also a helpful section at the beginning on vegan pantry staples, and how to cook certain basic things. Most of the recipes I've made have been pretty good. If you're a more experienced vegan cook, you can play with them a little bit to change them up or have them better suit your tastes.
Another great dessert book

Isa and Terry have another winner with Vegan Pie in the Sky. All the recipes I've made from it have been delicious and not too difficult. As usual, most of the ingredients aren't hard to find, and they give tips and great commentary on pie making.
Delicious cupcakes

My copy of this book is in terrible condition--I consider that a compliment because it means I've made recipes out of it so many times! I've loved every cupcake I've made from this book, and I get compliments all the time when I make cupcakes from here, even from non-vegans. Awesome recipes with easy-to-find ingredients. Great baking book for vegans and non-vegans.
