Availability: Ready to download

"Crunk" is a Southern slang term that means "to get excited." It's about passion and having pride in where you come from. For vegan blogger Bianca Phillips, it's also about creating no-frills, no-nonsense dishes that warm the soul and keep rich Southern traditions alive. As she explains,the Dirty South isn't about cleanliness; it's about ties to the land and the hominess o "Crunk" is a Southern slang term that means "to get excited." It's about passion and having pride in where you come from. For vegan blogger Bianca Phillips, it's also about creating no-frills, no-nonsense dishes that warm the soul and keep rich Southern traditions alive. As she explains,the Dirty South isn't about cleanliness; it's about ties to the land and the hominess of passing on a rich culture of good food and good times. Plant-based staples (beans, corn, and fresh produce) that have been the basis of Southern cooking for centuries, give simple soul food dishes a wholesome twist. These family classics, minus the meat, eggs, and dairy products, help keep traditional Southern food ways alive while allowing vegans, vegetarians, and anyone who cares about healthful eating to enjoy this satisfying down-home fare. Cheese-free Ro-Tel dip, country-fried tempeh steak, eggplant jambalaya and smoky stewed okra and tomatoes are a sample of the classic Southern comfort food that awaits.

    Lots of yummy recipes yet to be made, including many decadent desserts! So Far: ~Memphis-Style Barbecue Sauce: 4*, even though I'm from Memphis I've been a vegetarian waaay too long to remember if this is accurate. However, I'm guessing it is because people really like sweetness down here. ~Basic Cheesy Sauce: 5*, I think I've yet to meet a cheesy sauce I didn't like! ~Ground TSP Beef: 4* ~Tempeh Bacon: 4* ~Cheesy Tempeh Bacon Grits: 5* ~Sweet Potato Hash: 5*, I actually cannot stop thinking about this Lots of yummy recipes yet to be made, including many decadent desserts!

    I've been waiting for this book! Bianca Phillips' sense of humor and Southern roots shine through in this easy to read and easy to follow vegan cookbook. I'm all about Southern food, and I was really excited to see the recipes for vegan versions of Southern favorites. I've already made out a shopping list for some of her recipes. Peanut Butter Oatmeal Creme Pies? Yeah. That's happening. I can't wait. I've been waiting for this book!

    I can't wait to try out a ton of recipes in this book. I'm giving it five stars without trying much out of here yet because I know how much work Bianca put into this over several years. Plus, I've had her cooking, and I know of her immense love for food. Food is her passion and raison d'être. I trust that the recipes are going to be true to the food I've been lucky to have that she's cooked. In addition to developing the recipes, she also tested every single recipe on her own before putting the I can't wait to try out a ton of recipes in this book.

In addition to developing the recipes, she also tested every single recipe on her own before putting the recipe into the cookbook. I believe she had other testers as well. I'm very inspired by Bianca's persistence, consistency, and organization skills - things I'm usually lacking in. She was a pretty good friend of mine when I lived in Memphis, and I sure miss her and her cooking! I remember the magical day I first stumbled across her blog not too long after I became vegan. I couldn't believe there was another vegan in Memphis at the time. Bianca is a vegan extraordinaire! Now if only her/our friend Stephanie, also in the Memphis area, would also publish a book. That girl can bake! (and make her desserts look incredibly pretty too) So, I realize this is mostly a review of the author and not the book, but it's not everyday that one of your friends has a book published!

    I've followed Bianca's blog for awhile and was so excited when her book finally came out, but since I got it I keep being sick (for awhile thought that was 'cause I was gluten-sensitive, which limited the recipes I could try), so I've only tried the Brown Sugar-Baked Tofu Ham with Redeye Gravy and the Yella' Cake with Fudgy Frosting. Both recipes were as delicious as I'd hoped! I look forward to trying more, pretty much every recipe sounds good.

    My fabulous friends held a party for Brian and me and made us a 4 course vegan meal. Each course they gave me a cookbook as a gift. It was the best dinner ever! The main dish was the "chicken" pot pie from this book and it was very delicious. I will definitely make it again. My fabulous friends held a party for Brian and me and made us a 4 course vegan meal.
