I want to recommend this book, it’s like one of the best investments I have made with vegan cooking books, it not only has pretty easy recipes but also delicious. The drawings make it more interesting, every time someone goes to my house, has to take at look at it and most of the time, they leave wanting to try vegan food!
The first of two pies inspired by one of my favorite books of all time, @neil-gaiman’s American Gods! A pasty (like in the book!) recipe with beets, pork, cabbage, and other delicious root veggies, seasoned with paprika, dill, and all-spice. Get the recipe and read more about the book here!

In a small vial or jar, combine:
4 drops lemongrass oil
2 drops white musk oil
1 drop vetiver oil
1 drop sage oil
1 drop vanilla oil (optional)
Mix thoroughly and adjust to scent. Add 1/8 cup of jojoba or almond oil as a carrier. Wear to relax, increase memory and focus, and attract other bookworms. Vanilla gives this concoction an extra boost of allure.
Smolder this loose-leaf incense over a lit block of charcoal to awaken the mind, sharpen your concentration, and draw in like-minded readers.

2 parts Benzoin resin
1 part Copal resin

The book’s outside cover boasted poems by a disgraced writer,
but inside was page after page of handwritten recipes for alcohol — the
secretly preserved know-how of a Prohibition-era doctor. Decades later, the
book found its way to writer and former museum curator Matthew Rowley, who set
out to discover who its author was and why he documented recipes that could
have sent him to jail in the 1920s.
Rowley shares his hunt for answers in Lost Recipes of Prohibition: Notes from a Bootlegger’s Manual.
