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.
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.
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.
