Alex Jamieson, Morgan Spurlock's partner, was not pleased when Spurlock decided to do his 30 day McDonald's diet but finally gave her blessing once Spurlock agreed to turn himself over to her for detoxing post-experiment.

This book was not on my radar until Farty Girl mentioned a veggie burger recipe in it.

I've so enjoyed this book. Even the cover moves me.

I tried the veggie burger recipe first. I don't think that I've found the ultimate veggie burger but I liked it -- especially since it had a level of moistness that two other recipes did not.

I had fun making recipes in this book. I tend to have a knack for finding recipes that require a lot of preparation but I was able to get in and out of the kitchen in no time with these concoctions.

Black Bean and Sweet Potato Chili

Loved the Cilantro

Mini Pizzas


Can't wait to make falafel and walnut burger patties. I'm so in the zone that I might even try my hand at almond milk.


  1. Oh boy all that looks good!

    Personally I hate almond milk, but a lot of people swear by it. I swear at it.

  2. gingersnapper,

    LOL about the almond milk.

    I was pretty happy with the recipes. I have everything but lemons for the falafel which I plan to make tomorrow. ;)

  3. OMG I'm soooo glad you like it!!! Alex is a genius, isn't she? Yay!!!

  4. I'm so glad that you mentioned it. I haven't had this much fun with a cookbook in a long time.

    Hmmm, what else do you have on your bookshelf?

  5. hey hey hey! i am so gonna try to find that book at the library :) i make those little pizzas for my daughter all the time. so super easy and cheap, right?
    black bean and sweet potato chili-yumm! i always say i'm gonna make that and never do. i end up eating all the sweet potatoes in the house with cinnamon and pb. no self control i tell ya. once the weather cools off,i'll try to make that chili again :)

  6. Heather,

    Why didn't you tell me about the little pizzas? :)

    Hmmm, never tried peanut butter with sweet potatoes...
