The Baker Creek Vegan Cookbook ($19.99, 194 pp) is more than just a cookbook. Written by husband and wife, Jere and Emilee Gettle, this book provides easy instructions for canning and preserving, a list of everyday kitchen staples and many vegan recipes. The Gettle’s are cofounders of The Baker Creek Seed Company, and with Jere’s childhood of growing up on a farm, their passion for gardening and fresh produce comes alive in this book.
