New Cookbook: ‘Isa Does It’

You guys. It’s been a while since I’ve posted on here. Without boring you with too many details, work has been kicking my butt (in a good way) and my yoga teaching has been going well, too. Oh, and we got a new cat. By accident. We found this little guy hiding under the hood of our car while it was pouring rain, hence his name, “Honda.” Having a kitten has been quite an adjustment, especially with two older cats. Three cats are my limit. No, really.

But as far as food, we’ve been cooking up lots of great vegan meals lately. Isa Chandra Moskowitz of “Veganomicon” fame, and several other awesome cookbooks, has just come out with a new cookbook, “Isa Does It,” as well as a series of videos that showcase a few of the recipes from the book. So far, we’ve made the Nirvana Enchilada Casserole, Meat Beany Chili and Corn Muffins, and the New England Glam Chowder. All have been amazing and super, super easy to make, which seems to be the theme of the new cookbook.

As much as I love “Veganomicon,” some of the recipes require lots of ingredients and lots of time. In “Isa Does It,” Isa focuses on simple recipes that pack a lot of flavor, which is exactly what we’ve been looking for lately. Since starting my job over the summer, I’ll admit to ordering takeout way more than we should. For that reason, it’s been nice to get back into the kitchen to make some new dishes. This week, in fact, we plan on making a curry peanut kale bowl and a thai chili recipe from the book. I’ll keep you posted on how they turn out.

I hope you all are well!!

  1. I have been waiting for my copy for some time now. I got a chance to browse through one at a bookstore and it looks beautiful. The pictures and the font and graphics just look so good. I agree with you about Veganomicon and some of Isa’s earlier works being great but sometimes time and ingredient intensive. That is why I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on this one. I look forward to seeing creations from the cookbook here!
