I'm glad I bought this for myself, and didn't ask for it as a gift. This book isn't gift quality. The photos are dull and washed out and look like they came from an ink jet printer that was low on ink. Some photos look stretched and distorted. The pages are really thin. Yeah, all this I read in the reviews here before I bought it. So why did I buy a book with subpar printing? Because it is a Paleo cookbook with Juli's whit and tasty creativity. And who wouldn't want a book with a picture of Juli snuggling with her crock pot in a field of flowers?
The table of contents and the index are organized beautifully.
The short section on the Paleo explanation and what foods to eat and avoid are good for the newbies.
And the sweet potato brownies? - top of my list, for sure.
I'll just be sure to use my Clear Solutions Jumbo Cookbook Holder. to protect the flimsy pages.
I'll be waiting for your next cookbook, with killer photos that pop off the pages, larger text, thicker pages, and a different publisher.
I'm raising my rating from 3 stars to 4 stars. Yeah, the printing job is VERY bad, but damn this food is fantastic. Try the sweet potato meatloaf for dinner. And have the freezer pumpkin fudge for dessert. It tastes like frozen pumpkin pie filling. So good...
First the positive! The author clearly does a much higher carb version of Paleo than I but still there were plenty of recipes for me and the higher carb ones can be saved for splurges or customized with little difficulty.
The recipes are easy to make and use accessible ingredients that you are likely to have on hand. The Cilantro Chicken Nuggets are amazing. I use ground pork instead and add fish sauce to them as I think it boosts the flavor. The Filet with grapes, Ginger Mushroom Chicken, Blackberry Pork Chops, Salmon Asparagus Frittata, and Caramelized Onion Frittata are delicious. I would have made more recipes but I can't stop making the Chicken (Pork) Cilantro Nuggets! I'm not crazy about the dipping sauce though but usually just sprinkle them with coconut aminos and am good to go.
The dessert recipes look mouthwatering but they are pretty high in carbs so I haven't made any yet.
Now for the not so good. The quality of the printing is terrible. I can make better pictures on my home printer. The pictures are so low res it's hard to tell what some of them are. It's just very unprofessional and makes the food look unappetizing. Somehow the recipes overcome the horrible photos but Paleo cookbooks like Against All Grain have really raised the bar in this genre and future Paleo cookbook authors are going to have to up their game to compete with books like that.
Finally, she uses a lot of self-deprecating humor throughout the book (and her blog) and while a little bit of it is endearing it can get to be too much. It makes me think this author, despite basically being a beautiful Crossfit goddess and a damn good cook, is really sort of insecure. I feel like giving her a hug and telling her how great she is.
Hopefully if a second book is forthcoming the quality of the print will dramatically improve but I really do like this cookbook despite the aforementioned issues. There are still a ton of recipes I want to try from it and I will keep making the awesome chicken nuggets for the foreseeable future.
