A young girl talking to her father, overheard at the checkout aisle of a grocery store.
Daddy, why don't you buy that vegetarian cooking magazine?
It's too expensive.
But the food looks really good.
Honey, I already know how to cook vegetables. After awhile, there's not much more to write about.
But your vegetables don't taste good.
Happy fresh vegetable season. Asparagus now; real tomatoes soon!
A (very) short list of recommended cookbooks (a few vegetarian, a few beery):

- Sundays at Moosewood
- The BeerBistro Cookbook (Stephen Beaumont, Brian Morin)

- Vegan with a Vengeance (Isa Chandra Moskowitz)
- The Savory Way (Deborah Madison)
- The Vegan Dad Cookbook (Nathan Kozuskanich)
- Cizauskas' Beer & Food page (that's me)
- and The Omivore's Dilemma (Michael Pollan) Not a cookbook, but a good examination of the food chain.
