Barefoot and in the Kitchen : By Ashley Rowe By Katie Dunne

It’s hard for me to express to people how much I love cashews, peanuts, and all things nutty. When I’m at a restaurant or grocery shopping, because of my enthusiasm, what invariably comes out of my mouth is, “I love nuts!” I usually just keep my mouth shut to withhold any sense of victory from lazy jokesters, but I will take this opportunity to enthuse unabashedly because in this book is a recipe for Mac and Cheese with a cashew sauce! So, I immediately bookmarked it, went to the store, and tried it out. It was delicious, like pretty much everything in this vegan cookbook, and I’m not a vegan. It includes several references in the front that define ingredients and methods that may be obscure to readers. This will prove to be a handy resource for anybody interested in new, interesting recipes. –Katie Dunne (Microcosm Publishing, 636 SE 11th Ave., Portland, OR97214, microcosmpublishing.com)
