Please Don't Feed the Bears - Week Long Review

I was recently the lucky winner of a new cookbook: Please Don't Feed the Bears. The cookbook was a giveaway from VeganFreak for questions twittered while they were recording their podcast. I am so excited about this cookbook. I've never gotten a cookbook with so many recipes I wanted to try right away. This book has been on my wishlist for a while, but for some reason I've never gotten around to purchasing it.

So with new cookbook in hand, I'll be cooking and posting about recipes from this book all week long. So, stay tuned if you are interested in seeing how this book is. Here is the planned list of recipes I am going to tackle. And yes, they have funny punk rock titles:

Dehumanization Roast - a meatless loaf made with wheat gluten. Served with Golden Gravy.

Chinese Take-Out - a stir fry.

Taco Thrash-erole - a taco casserole with refried black beans, rice, tortilla chips and the interesting addition of hashbrowns.

Demian's Black Masserole - a strange looking (but yet compelling) recipe that contains pasta, sauerkraut, tofu, and tater tots. This one feels like my biggest risk of the week.

"Caught in the Mosh" Peanutbutter Pasta Spirals - Rotini with a peanut butter sauce and peas.

Each of these recipes has a recommended song to listen to while cooking, so I may have to get onto iTunes and check them out.


  1. Oh, no! I've just told myself, 'No more recipe books!' and now you're tempting me with this one! I've seen it on amazon, but didn't realise it would be so good (don't know why...) Now I may have to say, 'Right! Only ONE MORE recipe book!'

  2. Congrats! I can't wait for your reviews.
