I've been in a food rut and I think I want some printed cook books to try to get out. Any recommendations?

I'm a huge Isa Chandra Moskowitz fan, my favorite of hers is probably Isa Does It for easy, punchy meals. I make quite a few meals out of that book regularly. Terry Hope Romero also has some good books, though I find the quality and accessibility of her recipes to be a little more inconsistent. Vegan Eats World is pretty fun for takes on world cuisine. I also really enjoy Afro Vegan by Bryant Terry, because it's flavors you don't often see explored in vegan food.

Someone gifted me The Happy Pear, which has become my go-to for new recipe ideas. Lovely pics and accessible writing.

I've also had a flick through the Bosh book and that looks decent as well.

Street Vegan (quirky food truck recipes)

Thug Kitchen 101 (for lazy nights lol)

The Vegetarian Flavor Bible (not completely vegan, but this book is so cool. It’s like heaven for nerds who enjoy food and data indexing lol)

I also second the recommendation for Isa Chandra Moskowitz. All her books I’ve seen are great!

I love Sarah Kramer's cookbooks. I have La Dolce Vegan and How It All Vegan, and I'm working up to getting all of them. I find her recipes delicious and easy to follow. I live in a mixed household, often feeding teenagers, and find that her dishes appeal to non-vegans too. There's a good range of additional fun stuff, like popcorn toppings, vegan cleaning methods, a soup that's more of a cure-what-ails-you potion, and how to make your own tempeh.

I still get a lot of use out of my old Moosewood Cookbook and The Enchanted Broccoli Forest, even though they are vegetarian cookbooks.
