"When I first went vegan," writes Lauren, "it was a bit of a mystery to me. I was totally amazed that you didn't need eggs and dairy for baking, and that the resulting treat tasted just as good. Or, that with a little imagination and a few swaps, you could make decadent treats like doughnuts, cupcakes, and macaroni and cheese, that rivaled my mom's—enjoyable recipes that were not pathetic vegan stand-ins for the 'real' versions."

"One of my main goals with the book was to provide vegans with an array of fantastic recipes that they can serve to their non-vegan friends and family," says Lauren. "Most people usually think of vegan dishes as unappetizing steamed vegetables, a pile of beans with a sprig of parsley on top, or a block of wobbly tofu."

Chapters in Vegan Yum Yum range from Breakfast and Brunch to Appetizers, Main Dishes, Side Dishes and Light Meals, Pasta, and Desserts. Lauren has even provided chapters dedicated to Drinks and Sauces, Dips and Spreads. Her recipes include:

"If you have just made the decision to become vegan and find yourself in need of kitchen skills fast, I wanted to create a cookbook full of easy-to-follow recipes and instructions that will make the novice vegan feel like a pro in no time. But you don't have to be a vegan to put together a vegan meal. You don't have to be a vegan to like vegan food."
