VegCookbook Club 2012: Wanna Join ?

I'm thinking about setting up an online VegCookbook Club in 2012. Would you like to be a part of it?

You don't have to be a vegetarian, or vegan (I'm not) to join, you just have to want to eat less meat. You could join for a variety of reasons: environmental, animal rights, health, or because you want a creative cooking challenge.

Here's how I'm thinking it would work (I'm open to suggestions):
  1. I'd select a vegetarian, or vegan cookbook for us to cook from during the month.
  2. Each Meatless Monday I'll post about recipes that I tried from the cookbook.  
  3. You share the recipes you tried, how they turned out, and any changes you made as a comment, a link to your blog post, or a link to a Flickr photo of what you made.
  4. On the last Meatless Monday of the month, I'll do a round up post of some of our comments, blog posts and photos, and announce next month's VegCookbook.
Does that sound like fun to you?

Which of these VegCookbooks are you the most excited to cook from in January?

I'm looking forward to cooking with you!

Full disclosure: I have an Amazon Associates account. If you buy something on Amazon after clicking one of the cookbook links, I get a percentage of the sale.

  1. sounds like fun! would love to do the vegan slow cooker, since i just got that book :)

  2. Sounds really cool! I'm hoping to experiment more with vegetarian meals so this would be a great way to do that and hopefully see and hear about some of the recipes before I have to cook them for myself. What a fun and collaborative way to breeze through a cookbook and get the best out of it!

  3. BahamaDawn ~ So far, Appetite for Reduction seems to be a favorite choice to start with. Luckily, we have 12 months to cook through together! I'd like to try the slow cooker one too. I'll announce the January cookbook soon.

    Yoga G33k ~ Glad you're going to join us!

  4. I'd love to join in this fun and it would be great incentive to get blogging! I brought Appetite for Reduction with me on vacation so I could get inspired for the new year so I'd be excited to start with that one. Thanks for coming up with a great idea and opening it up to all readers.

  5. LeahL ~ So glad you're going to be a part of the club. I'll be announcing the January VegCookbook soon.

    Looks like Appetite for Reduction is still first in line . . .

  6. This sounds great. I'm agreeable to any of the cookbooks mentioned. I was given a gift of Vegan Comfort Food by Alicia C. Simpson. In these simple recipes the line between vegetarian and vegan is very thin and it's a great introduction to some ingredients I've never worked with. I'll look forward to seeing where this cooperative project goes, Britt! Debra
