The picture quality is horrendous--a majority of the images are oddly stretched or zoomed-in so it's hard to tell exactly what the final product will look like. The paper the book is printed on is really low quality and very thin. The writing, while definitely in Juli's regular style, seems like it should have been edited a little more for the book (and by editing I mean grammar and syntax, not word use).
The book contains one hundred recipes and only twenty-nine are new, so you can find more than two-thirds of the recipes on paleOMG.com, with better pictures, for FREE. Go check out Juli's blog, it's funny and has lots of delicious recipes, and leave this book on the shelf.
That being said, I am so, so, so disappointed with the quality of this book. The pictures are printed horribly. I know Juli's pictures look better than that! The paper is super cheap, the book itself is flimsy and the print is hard to read. The recipes I've printed off from her blog look better and are easier to read.
This is a pet peeve of mine - but when a recipe is printed the ingredients SHOULD be listed in the order in which they are used. It's no biggie for a blog. That kind of medium is meant for a more casual conversation, but I expected more out of a recipe book.
I love the Juli stories and the recipe introductions, but the format of the recipes need a little re-tweaking.
All of the recipes I've made are tasty and as someone who has been cooking off her blog for a few years, I'm excited to dive into the new recipes! But I feel like I got ripped off and paid way too much for such poor quality - paying over $20 because I preordered. Now I see it's cheaper on Amazon and feel even more ripped off.
-Chicken basil meatloaf
-Cilantro chicken nuggets
-Pistachio pesto chicken pasta
-Coconut ginger mushroom chicken
-Plantain and mango beef
-Brazilian curry chicken
-Chocolate banana breakfast bars
-Sweet curried cauliflower soup
I actually don't even totally follow Paleo eating- I just love the taste and ease of these recipes! The other day as we were eating the cilantro chicken nuggets for dinner, my picky husband said "Who IS this chic and where does she come up with these recipes?!". Yes, they are that good.
The ONLY reason gripe I have with this cookbook has nothing to do with the recipes but rather the material of the cookbook. The pages are pretty much plain paper and I already spilled water on it so some pages have gotten roughed up! If the pages were more durable and if it were spiral bound (like ALL cookbooks should be so you can easily prop it open), then it would be perfect!
The poorly non-appetizing photos mean I only bookmarked 2 recipes to make.
Meanwhile, I received Primal Cravings by megan and brandon keatley in the mail and want to make everything immediately.
Hopefully the author learns from her mistake and takes notes from the Keatleys.
