Made the spring muffins. Very delicious! I made mini muffins out of them. But the icing...Was way too runny. Anyone else? I had to add a bunch of sugar. Wonder if it meant 2tsp instead of 2 tbsp of juice? And the pesto I mentioned...I wonder if you should pack the cilantro? And how much juice should you get out of the orange? But so far everything has TASTED like a dream!

I also have it and love it. I'm a college student with limited resources so this works for me because it doesn't call for a lot of ridiculous ingredients. For some things I've had to buy a few different spices but spices last a long time and alot of the recipes use the same 3-4 spices.

I bought it and LOVE everything I have made so far- about 8 recipes. Some items may not be familiar to you, but theybare easily found in the supermarket!!

I could add that the items I purchased were for example: unsweetened coconut flake, cilantro, wheat berries, ground flax. I made the coconut cilantro pesto and fell in love...

Just got the SP cookbook and really like it. I did need to get a few items from the grocery store that I hadn't had in the cupboard, but worth it! Very basic and very interesting reading. Inspiring. There were several recipes that I could go ahead and make with what I already had. I would happily recomment this book to friends. (That's You!)

Good question. I too am looking to buy the cookbook in the future. I hope that some one who can help replies to this question.

This question is for the people who own the recipe book. I am so close to purchasing the Spark recipe book. I LOVE to cook. What I need to know is do many of the recipes require ingredients that are NOT common to have in the cupboard? I have basic spices and sauces..such as fish and soy. I just bought a healthy cooking recipe book and there are so many recipes calling for ingredients that I just don't have on hand or never heard of. There are so many nights that I want to pick a chicken recipe out of the book and try it for dinner. I start reading it and there are a few items that would require a 30 min ride to the grocery store!! I would appreciate your honest take on the recipe book. Thanks so much!
