I own a few cookbooks from Post Punk Kitchen, and they are all wonderful!
I must say that I'm not a huge "sweets" fan, but I enjoy baking for others. The first recipe I made was The Blueberry Ginger Hand Pies. The recipe makes 8 and all were gone in less than 24 hours...2 people mind you.
I would recommend this cookbook to anyone, vegan or not.
This book just misses five stars for me. There are so many things I love about it, the main thing being the use of nuts and other ingredients over commercial vegan dairy alternatives. I tried three recipes this year for my Thanksgiving dinner, and all three tasted fantastic! The only minor issue I had was that for two of the pies the texture was off. The pumpkin pie wasn't that smooth, and the maple pecan pie never firmed up completely. The chocolate pudding pie was fantastic and so easy to make!
Overall it is a great book, and I'm sure my copy will be getting a lot of use.
