About the Author
Juli Bauer was once called the Chelsea Handler of Paleo. She’s not sure if it was intended as a compliment, but that is how she is taking it. Juli is out to make you laugh on her website and in her newest cookbook. And if you don’t laugh, she’ll teach you how.
Juli is the New York Times bestselling author of The Paleo Kitchen and the creator of one of the most-visited Paleo websites, PaleOMG. She started her website to share her homemade Paleo meals, but now it’s where she shares her life stories and experiences. From fitness to fashion to body image issues, you’ll find it all on paleomg.com.
When Juli isn’t in the kitchen, she’s coaching or working out in her CrossFit gym, feeding her passion for fitness. Or you’ll find her on the couch, cuddling with her French bulldog, Jackson. They are best friends. They reside together in Denver, Colorado, continuously loving the sunshine.

Lemme preface this review with this "warning:" If you're gonna get your undies in a bundle over an occasional expletive, then you may wanna stop right here and look for another cookbook. Like The Joy of Cooking. It's pretty straight and narrow and I can't imagine it offending anyone. But I may drop a swear word/swear word censored with asterisks and you'll also see them in Juli's cookbook.We all good? K. Moving on then.
Not gonna lie. The first recipe I tried was the basil, mint, and cuke g&t (pg 267). In my defense, although I received the book on August 18, I didn't have time to even look at the book until August 29th, which fell on a Saturday, so yeahhhh, I wanted a cocktail. And it was phenom. PHENOM.
My husband and I ADORED the chicken carbonara casserole (pg. 94). The greatest thing is that there's no coconut milk in it!!!!!! I'm not anti-coconut milk by any means, but SO many paleo sauces use this as the base and frankly, I get sick of it. Furthermore, the buffalo chicken casserole (pg. 80) is also outta this world. If you're questioning whether to try a paleo cookbook and/or this cookbook in particular, have you taken a gander at The Perfect Pizza (pg. 136)? Get! Outta! Town! I'll readily admit, it's no substitute for LaPorte pizza, but it's the best paleo pizza we've eaten. Dead. Serious. I could keep listing all of the recipes we've tried and loved, but to keep this review relatively brief, I won't. (WelloktwistmyarmIllgiveyouafewmore. Dairy free pesto mayo, hoisin sauce, guasacada anyone? Yep. I'm totes a condiment girl. Gimme some of anything and I'll dip the s**t outta that.)
Moving on to the layout. Quite frankly, if a paleo cookbook doesn't have pictures, names, and page numbers of all of the recipes in sequential order shown either in the front or back of the book as like an index type deal, I put it down. At that point I'm done like a tom turkey (also paleo). Right then and there, you've lost me. Juli's book has this. I'm visually oriented, what can I say. (Speaking of which, HAVE YOU SEEN THE PIC OF THE LAYERED FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE CAKE ON PG. 242? Yeah. I wanna smash my entire face right into that gorgeous looking cake. No, I haven't made it, but if it's anything like any of her other desserts, it's nothing short of spectacular.) I can't speak to the dessert section because I can't even articulate the enormity of my sweet tooth. I've tried a few of her desserts in the past and they are just off limits to me hey're that tasty. Also, I LOVE that she has flaps on the book cover so that I can use them as pseudo bookmarks. I love the pics (I try not to stare and salivate for too long), she includes recommendations for other dishes that would pair well with that dish or that you might enjoy if you liked said dish, and finally, although I don't spend a lot of time reading her anecdotes, those I do read I find comical, so you might as well. I'm a straight shooter and I don't sugar coat things and my impression is that she doesn't either. Finally, I don't particularly enjoy cooking. I don't wanna spend my entire afternoon and evening in the kitch. Juli's recipes are quick and tasty. Yet another selling point as far as I'm concerned.
My only criticism, and this is completely personal preference, but I don't think the stevia in the sweet almond milk in necessary. That's the only ingredient I'd omit.
Here's the deal folks. If you're on the paleo fence, I strongly encourage you to check out her blog (paleOMG). She has about a bajillion recipes there dating back to at least 2011 that you can check out for free. FREE! My husband and I have been eating paleo since October, 27 2014 (yes, I do remember the exact day) and we haven't made the same recipe twice, most of which came from Juli's blog and/or one of her two previous cookbooks. Don't be surprised if for the first two weeks of eating paleo meals you're left thinking, "Hmmm, these recipes are largely mediocre." Give your palate time to adjust to healthy eating and I SWEAR to you that you'll find these recipes are as tasty if not tastier than what you've been eating. Your taste buds are overstimulated by the processed foods you eat (ever wonder why that Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal is so freaking spectacularly delicious?? Yep. You know what I'm talking about. Or just Google it.)
Am I friends with Juli? Nope. Have I met her? Nope. Did I receive a free copy to preview? Nope. Do we live about an hour apart geographically? Yep. Point being: I'm singing accolades because Juli truly deserves them, not because I have a vested interest in Juli or whatever she does. I'm a vocal gal. If I like something, you'll know. If I dislike something you'll know. I love love love this cookbook (as well as her book OMG that's paleo? (I'll admit The Paleo Kitchen was my least favorite cookbook, but in her defense, at least from an outsider's perspective, that cookbook was a collaborative effort, not an individual one. Not sure whether that had anything to do with anything.) I just wanna grab Juli by the shoulders, give her a little shake whilst asking her, "When is your next cookbook coming out?!?!?!?!!)
Alrighty then. I'm done.
We're big pizza eaters in my house, and the recipe for her Perfect Pizza is to die for. It took me a few times to get the crust perfect - we like a nice thin crust - but I now feel like an expert when it comes to making dough with tapioca and coconut flour just a few months later! We made this recipe every weekend for a month straight, it's officially become a go-to recipe in our home. I would highly suggest making the homemade pizza sauce that accompanies the recipe, it's incredible.
I feel like I'm finally learning my way around the kitchen, and my fiance doesn't feel like he's missing out on his favorite foods either. My fingers are crossed that Juli creates another cookbook as wonderful as her first!
