Change Your Sauce!!!

I'm excited to announce that my new book, Change Your Sauce, Change Your Life, is now available on Amazon and CreateSpace!!!


This is so much fun! After much editing and tweaking I finally came to the "finished is better than perfect" point that happens in any creative project, and hit the Publish button.

This is a cute little book that gets right to the point. It's about sauce. Delicious vegan sauces that will blow you away, whether you're vegan or not. Eating a plant-based diet does not mean being deprived of things like Cheese Sauce, Creamy Alfredo Sauce, Hollandaise, and even Mushroom-Cashew Gravy. We can have it all, and it's all really, really good.

Many of the recipes call for raw cashews. That's where the creaminess comes from, and vegans love their cashews! However, in many cases, cashews can be substituted with cauliflower, tofu, or even beans. Feel free to experiment!

To round the book out, I've also included a few basic recipes for things to put under your sauce. A bowl of say, cheese sauce all by itself might not be such a bad thing, but I think it's nicer to give it something to wrap itself around.

This is a great book for people who are either new to plant-based cooking, or who don't really like to cook! Everything in it is simple to make, and all of it can be varied according to your own tastes and what you happen to have on hand.

I'd call this more of a cooking book than a cook book. There's a subtle difference. These recipes are adaptable, and exact ingredients are not important. I've left lots of room for your own Cook's Notes because I want you to write in this book! Make it your own, and keep track of what you do. It's so much easier to go back and do it again if you write it down.

What's inside? Here's the back cover. In a nut shell (stock up on raw cashews right now!) - there are 21 sauce recipes, 6 salad dressings, 6 easy meal un-recipes, equipment and ingredient lists, and blank pages for notes.


I need to do a bit of format adjusting before it's ready for Kindle, but I really think a cookbook is best on paper, in your hands, with good food spilled all over it. For $5.99 you can replace it if you mess it up too much!

I hope you'll buy a bunch of them and give them to your friends. And while you're all busy making and eating good new sauces, I'll be busy working on my next project. It's a secret for now. For the moment, let's eat SAUCE!!!

Get your copy of Change Your Sauce, Change Your Life for just $5.99 on Amazon or CreateSpace
(If you're curious, I get a better royalty when you buy from CreateSpace, but I know Amazon is easier. Please shop where you're most comfortable, and help spread the word to your friends!)
Thank you so much for your support!!!

"and vegans love their cashews". Unfortunately, this vegan wishes he could love cashews. They don't love me. I have a few food allergies that haunt me. Cashews, pistachios and mangoes are in the same food group and give me fits---DARN!
Do you have any more comments on substituting for the cashews? I REALLY want the book but need to be sure it will work for me.

Hi Ethan - Sorry to hear about your food allergies! I haven't done a lot of substituting in these recipes, but I intend to do so and share the results on my blog and on Facebook. Maybe you'll want to wait before ordering your copy. OR, get it, and share your substitution successes with me so I can share them on the blog. I do want to have that info for others!

One thing I learned the other night, when subbing cauliflower for cashews in the Alfredo Sauce, is that the cauliflower HAS to be cooked in some way before making it into sauce. I thought I could shortcut a step by blending it raw and then cooking the sauce. It didn't work......... So steam that cauliflower first, unless you want a skunky smelling sauce!
