Cooking Tips to Quit the Short Order Cook Status for Every Meal, Instead, Make Hybrid Recipes
This cookbook contains cooking tips to help the cook of the family avoid being a short order cook all the time because recipes work for both vegetarians and meat-lovers. I know with two diets in a family, being a short order cook will happen, but it doesn’t have to happen for every meal. There is a solution. There are ways to make cooking for two diets easier.
The solutions I’ve found for multi-diet cooking in one meal involves the meat ingredient of the recipe. My secrets are to add the meat in various ways to allow for a meatless portion and a meat-containing portion. For example, the hybrid recipes can be easily made if the meat is added:
- later in the dish preparation
- after it is split into two portions
- to only 1/2 (or 1/4 or 3/4) of the dish
- in large chunks rather than shredded
- as desired as in build-your-own type meals

Reviews of One Dish Two Diets
I’d like to share with you some reviews that cookbook users have written.
Julie Hoag has accomplished something in the cookbook niche that I never thought possible;
she has created a Hybrid book that caters to both vegetarian and meat eaters all in the same family!
It’s the best new idea since some ingenious soul discovered that chocolate and peanut butter work in harmony!
Julie’s recipes combine simple and inexpensive ingredients in such creative and delightful ways that it makes cooking fun!
Those who once stood on the periphery of the kitchen or looked over your shoulder might choose to help with preparation.
Julie’s easy to follow directions make it possible for anyone to master the meal and feel successful.
The accompanying pictures are exquisitely detailed and will cause salivating before the dishes are served.
Where meal preparation for the hybrid family once required juggling tons of different dishes to cater to all sorts of likes and needs finally a solution exists that works for all!
I am excited to get started and heading to the grocery store to begin this new cooking adventure! I bet it will reduce the stress of meal planning to the point that eating together will become the centerpiece of your family’s enjoyment!~Lisa Leshaw Writer
I have yet to see any cookbook like One Dish Two Diets! I never realized the possibilities in splitting one meal for both meat and non-meat diets. Julie’s cookbook makes it easy in saving multi-diet families both time and money, without sacrificing delicious meals. Even if you’re a one diet family, this is such a great cookbook for learning alternative options in meal planning!~theMRSingLink a Florida Lifestyle and Relationships Blog.
From Olive Jude:
The concept here is fantastic! Though no one in my family is a vegetarian, each family’s dinner plate is not like the other in my house. My daughters and I prefer a veggie-heavy dinner plate, while my son and husband go heavy on the meat. So, viewing recipes in a hybrid manner makes my meal planning easier and my time spent cooking more efficient. Julie also shows me ways to disguise veggies in meals for my one picky meat-eater who is never thrilled with vegetables on his plate. Many of the recipes are quick and easy for busy families, which is something I always look for, especially on weeknights. ~Food and Lifestyle Blogger Jen at Olive Jude
Julie–on your cookbook One Dish Two Diets:
I really appreciate your raw honesty and sharing your personal stories about being a “hybrid” family and also your parents initially NOT liking your vegetarianism. It’s funny how something as simple as food preference can cause a bit of family drama right? LOL
I think your recipes are perfect for families looking for simple yet delicious weekday meal options. Your descriptions of the dish at the beginning are really good and also your attention to details like portion size, prep time/cooking time, are good too. And I noticed you use a lot of ingredients that are “accessible” at most grocery stores which is a big bonus! Thanks for NOT making us go overseas for Himalayan salt or mushrooms from the remote areas of the Swiss Alps..LOL 😊~Chetna Macwan of cmspiceulture at Spice Culture Blog

From Raising World Children:
I have been following Julie’s recipes for a while now. Love how versatile her recipes are and easy to make. And now I have them all in one place. I would suggest every vegetarian would want to try new recipes to grab this book for sure.~Aditi Raising World Children
This pasty recipe is one of my husband’s all-time favorites! The piece on the left contains ground beef, the piece on the right is mine because it’s vegetarian:) Yep, I’m the veggie lover!
My Take on the Cookbook as the Author:
This is a realistic cookbook for easy everyday recipes for the busy family. These are recipes I have made for my own family with success. I cook with love to make food that works for those desiring meatless meals and to also accommodate the meat-lovers of my family. I like easy recipes because I’m a busy mom of three boys. My boys are involved in sports and other activities so our evenings and weekends are busy. Easy meals make my life easier!
I love gourmet food, but my life doesn’t always allow for it because I don’t have time for it. The recipes in One Dish Two Diets are easy to make and tasty while delivering healthy dishes. My tips in the cookbook will also help parents of children who are vegetarians giving them ideas for what to feed their children and insight into being a child vegetarian.
I sincerely hope families find my tips and hybrid recipes helpful for cooking in a hybrid diet way.
Eat well and enjoy life!
