My most favorite thing about her book is that is has a lot of basics. These are things that are totally worth doing on a weekend to have for the rest of the week. Coconut milk yogurt, granola, nut milk, spice mixes and dressings. My second most favorite thing is that fact that most of the ingredients I already have in my house. I'm sorry, but nothing frustrates me more than when a recipe asks for some insane ingredients...either a spice, a vegetable or type of flour. I don't live in the best area to buy those things and I personally do not want to spend an hour on the internet hunting for them.
I plan on buying her other two books as well :)
Shredded chicken tacos
Granny's spaghetti and meat
Red curry salmon - only way to eat salmon!!!!
Bbq sauce & bbq burgers - yummmmm
Breakfast sausage & apples - my kids fave breakfast!!!
Mashed faux-tatoes - soooo yummy
Vanilla granola - buy the book just for this recipe. I make it weekly.
Mayonnaise - never works in a food processor had to use an immersion blender. Taste is great.
Soft graham cookies - couldn't roll them out, taste was not good and wasted a lot of honey
Sandwich bread - not worth it, especially using expensive cashew butter
Fruit roll ups - not worth the effort
Chicken tenders - just mediocre
Sweet potato fries not so great
1) Vanilla-almond granola. If you are a crunchy-breakfast cereal person like me, with this recipe you can safely end your love-affair with oat-based granola and replace it with this recipe. My only twist on this recipe is I don't use a dehydrator (and running a dehydrator for 24 hours as suggested just seems wrong to me) or keep the oven door cracked open. I cook it at 170F for 7 hours on convection bake. I probably could try it for a shorter period of time, but I don't want to screw it up (I'm at 5000 ft, so maybe that has something to do with it).
2) Basic cauli-rice. This is a delicious alternative to rice-rice.
3) The WORLD FAMOUS SANDWICH BREAD recipe. OMG. My hats off to Ms. Walker for this recipe. I had no idea it was even in the cookbook when I bought it, and what a pleasant surprise. 100% of the people I have given a slice of this bread to ALL seemed to have the impression that Paleo (or gluten-free) bread was just a horrible experience... until they tried this. My husband is a complete bread fiend, and I have successfully weaned him off of grain-based breads. My brother, who is gluten-intolerant, now has hope. This bread is so awesome because a) it tastes great (moist, right texture, right firmness), b) toasts easily, c) can be used in place of grain-based bread for every meal. BTW -- I have tried to make other bread recipes I found on the web, and they just didn't cut it.
Anyway -- this is one of the great Paleo books that will help you on your journey to a more healthful life.
sometimes it is too drastic. My Danielle Walker's book Against All Grain: Delectable Paleo Recipes gave my taste buds new interest, and helped me to become grain free as well as gluten free and dairy free. My skin has cleared up and I am content. This book taught me how to make white milk gravy gluten free, so my southern soul is happy. I love the pictures, use a great many of the recipes, and will buy the next book I hear she has out in the near future, but I detest the size of the book which is cumbersome to use..
I would say that if you are avoiding grains, dairy, or legumes because you have to, but you don't want to feel like you're missing out, then you will love this cookbook. If you are going Paleo for other reasons and you are more interested in meat and veggie-type dishes, then you might want to look elsewhere.

I rarely do 'treats' or even fruit or naturally sweetened products so I was slightly worried about this book being full of this stuff.
However I was completely wrong.
The savoury dishes in this book are absolutely fantastic and have all been a hit so far, the only problem is I can't get through the recipes fast enough!
Not only has Danielle produced stunningly photographed dishes, but the book is beautifully designed and really a joy to hold.
I've already bought copies for my family and will continue to recommend this.
It's definitely a cookbook for foodies and I can't praise it enough.
I also think there is a lot of useful general info here, i feel as though she really knows her stuff, particularly in terms of baking.
I definitely think Danielle is the queen of grain free baking. Her baking recipes are the best of any I have tasted. Her banana bread is out of this world and is baked whenever I have people round for dinner.
Recipes are pretty solid, at least the ones I've tried. No major hiccups in making them.
It's the best grain free book I've come across, so good I've bought more copies and given them to friends!
