This cookbook was the first SCD one we had. We've since purchased others and while there are several recipes in each that we use on a fairly regular basis, this is our 'go-to' book. I love it! The recipes are fairly simple for the most part which is great when you just want to eat. All the food is made from scratch so of course some prep time is involved.

When I just want to make some desert that tastes good and is good for us - I don't always want to take the time to whip egg whites and the like. The main courses are easily doable and one doesn't need to feel or act like a chief to prepare them and the results are so yummy!!!

I can see the point of having fancy recipes for the SCD as some folks like that sort of thing ... we do too, but what make from this cook book tastes so good without a ton of fuss. I really, really love the cinnamon coffee cake. The topping is sooooo good.

The time and temperatures I found to be right on as well even allowing for oven variances - this is especially important when baking almond flour goodies as it can be a bit tough getting things done and not overdone. It seems like she really tested the recipes a lot before she put them together in the book.

We also learned a lot by using this book. From many of these recipes, it is easy to change things up a bit and make different things or just modify things a bit for a different taste.

Bottom line: We love this SCD cookbook!!! We do like and use others, but this is the one we use the most.

I have made numerous recipes from this cookbook, and all have turned out really well! SCD baked goods can be touchy, as they tend to burn around the edges before they are done in the middle. But the recipes I have tried from this cookbook have all baked perfectly. And the seasonings in Lucy's recipes have been just right. The recipes obviously have been tested in the kitchen before they were included. I highly recommend this cookbook for those on the SCD. It is a godsend for celiacs.

The other SCD cookbooks seem to offer lots of yummy and exotic flavors, they are good too. But sometimes you are in the mood for homey food and this one fits the bill nicely. My toddler loves the crackers.

I own three SCD cookbooks and this one is my favorite so far.
The recipes are easy and delicious.
My favorite is the orange cake.
It calls for unsweetened orange juice, but I just add a peeled orange into my food processor along with the other ingredients, and the cake is simply divine.
I top it off with the vanilla creamy frosting recipe, and it tastes like an orange cheesecake...YUM!
This book also shows very helpful metric conversions for those who need it.
As long as you own a yogurt maker and a food processor for grinding almonds into almond flour the recipes are very easy to follow.
Many of the recipes call for Farmers cheese(otherwise known as hoop cheese or Dry curd cottage cheese) which you can either buy or make yourself out of goats milk,or Cows milk.
[..]
Another option is to substitute yogurt cheese in any of the recipes that call for farmers cheese.
There are many videos on youtube that show you how to make yogurt cheese as well as almond flour.

I'm so glad that I purchased this SCD cookbook. Some of the other ones I purchased call for more expensive ingredients -- which can be hard on the pocket, even if they're tasty. Lucy's SCD cookbook is more reasonable, and includes one recipe from Elaine Gottschall (who helped spread the word about the SCD, and Dr. Haas, who developed the diet).

It didn't take hours for me to prepare (the majority of) meals from this book. Recipes (for the most part) didn't ask for extravagant ingredients. I like that it's tiny, spiral-bound and easy to flip through to find a recipe while cooking. I've already made several recipes from the book (all in one day). I've already made the Eggplant and Vegetable Lasagna (delicious), the Italian Tomato Sauce, and the Chiles Rellenos Casserole (which reminds me of a fritatta). The price range for most recipes are down-to-earth, and affordable, which I like. And they're also tasty too.

Only thing is that I wished Lucy included were some of the basic recipes (like mayonnaise, etc;). Some of her of her recipes call for mayonnaise. Although I know it's in the original Breaking the Vicious book, but it would also help if it was in hers as well.

This was one of the first cookbooks that I bought when starting the SCD and six years later it is still one that I look to for the standard recipes that I cook week after week. Lucy is always a great resource for questions, and SCD products.

I've had and used this book for a long time, and after seeing the glowing reviews of bigger, snazzier books on this site, which I also own but have lousy recipes in them, I had to write a review for this wonderful collection. Every one of Lucy's recipes is a gem. I love to bake and my favorite things in the whole world are Lucy's cinnamon cookies and her yogurt muffins. The main dishes are delicious, many with a south-of-the-border flair. This is simple, pure cooking that yields maximum results with few ingredients. So many of the newer grain-free cookbooks will send you all over town to collect an assortment of exotic ingredients, only to be disappointed with the result. Not this one. I own lots of SCD and Paleo cookbooks, but I keep coming back to Lucy's.
