I love my Moosewood cookbooks. They are very down to earth recipes. I have tried a few in "The Voluptuous Vegan", really tasty. I also get cookbooks from the library before I buy them.

I'm still learning how to put together delicious meals with fish so this is a very timely suggestion. I'm getting this book today! Thanks.

Went to my mom's for dinner this past weekend and she made grilled salmon with a lime butter sauce -- which also included an incredible marinade. She got it from this cookbook:

She got the cookbook from the actual Fiddleback restaurant in Alaska. The book itself has a large number of salmon and halibut recipes. So I thought I'd recommend it. Heck, you can get it used on Amazon for less than $5 and, trust me, that lime butter recipe is worth that much alone!

Also, this is not a 'cookbook' per se, but this website has lots of good-looking vegetarian recipes. I've only tried a few, but they were yum!

Hi, I'm actually just finishing up Pollan's 'In Defense of Food'. I'll admit that some parts lost my interest a bit - but, overall, great info! I especially liked the last part of the book, which outlined some of the food rules.

Another book I really liked recently was 'Master Your Metabolism', by Jillian Michaels. Some really interesting stuff in that book, regarding healthy eating (though, it too had some less-than exciting parts, haha). And I guess she's a pescatarian, too! (she doesn't mention it in the book)

I'm not going to post all of Pollan's rules on an open forum, but I thought I'd share a few of them so you could all decide if you want to pick up the book.

Don't eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn't recognize as food.

Avoid food products with "lite," "low-fat" or "nonfat" in their names.

Avoid foods that are pretending to be something they are not (like margarine).

It's not food if it arrived through the window of your car.

Don't overlook the oily little fishes (sardines, anchovies, mackerel smaller sustainable fish, not the big meaty ones!)

Have a glass of wine with dinner.

Spend as much time enjoying the meal as it took to prepare it.

Break the rules once in a while.

I mentioned this in the Fish and Chat topic, but it fits here, too.

I picked up Michael Pollan's Food Rules yesterday. It fits very well with any attempt to improve the quality of food being eaten. It provides 64 Rules to support the idea of his In Defense of Food -- "Eat food. Not too Much. Mostly plants."

Check it out!
