not all the 
all the are winners the pancakes were horrible The plain cake donuts are light and fluffy are are full of flavor The texture is perfect for a donut The Snickerdoodles are amazing once I doubled the amount of applesauce in the recipe I generally don t use bean flours so I have swapped out the garbanzo and fava bean flour for sorghum flour with positive results I m excited to work through recipes in this bookShe does use a lot of agave nectar which has a strong taste and is very expensive I ve avoided her recipes that use large amounts of agave nectar as we don t care for the flavorI like that her recipes are not dependent on soy such as tofu We really like coconut oil and I m thrilled she uses it and canola oil instead of a packaged vegan margarine Overall a good cookbook The Classics include baked donuts cookies savory snacks gluten free vegan versions of commercial brands like Chips Ahoy Thin Mints and Nilla Wafers and traditional things like Hamentaschen Irish soda bread Rugalach and because this bakery is in NYC chocolate egg creamsIngredients include Bob s Red Mill All Purpose Gluten Free Baking Flour garbanzo fava bean flour brown rice flour coconut oil agave nectar vegan sugar potato starch arrowroot powder rice milk applesauce xanthan gum flax meal Recipes All have head notes most have a color photo none have storage advice Measurements are in US volume The difficulty level of each recipe is ranked on a scale of one to four cake slices with four slices being the hardest The pancake recipe By this point about 15 books in I am definitely seeing some overlap in most of these cookbooks but I did uit reading this one in most of these cookbooks but I did uit reading this one I got to the Caramelized Onion and Cheddar Cheese Crepes because I am heading to the itchen to give these bad boys a tryWill finish the book later grin.
