If you're looking for a book to help get you introduced and acclimated with Paleo baking, this is it! Are you bored with the Paleo diet because all you eat are meat, vegetables, fruit and nuts with no variety at all? Buy this book. Do you think that you can never make this diet work for you because you have kids who need to have cookies and cake once and awhile because they're kids and that's what kids do but all your baked good attempts turn out flat, dry and unappetizing? Buy this book. Are you missing s'mores, Girl Scout thin mint cookies and onion rings? Buy this book. Do you miss making pancakes with your family on Saturday mornings and decorating sugar cookies at Christmas time? BUY THIS BOOK. Seriously Tammy knocked it out of the park with these recipes to help you indulge, relax and enjoy your Paleo life!

The book itself is beautifully laid out with drool-worthy pictures and easy to navigate contents. There is just enough information on nutrition and the Paleo philosophy to get a beginner up to speed but not so much that it becomes overwhelming. The recipes too are very approachable and don't require a laundry list of ingredients or complicated steps; you don't have to be a trained chef to indulge in these goodies!
Some of them are fast and easy to make such as the super quick bread on page 42. I made this microwaved bread from almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and sea salt, along with coconut oil and egg and a little bit of water, and in five minutes I was spreading jam on something that tasted like homemade cornbread. Some of them are more involved, such as the coconut colada ice cream on page 202 made from coconut milk, ripe bananas, diced pineapple, limes, and shredded coconut, or the no bake meyer lemon tarts on page 52 that use soaked raw cashews to get a creamy consistency for the filling.
One of the things I love best about this cookbook is that I know exactly what I'm going to find from looking at the cover. Indulgences. I know that this is not food that I should be eating every day, but when I'm in the mood for a special treat or if I'm going out to a social gathering where Paleo foods may not be the norm, I know that I can make something from this book and feel like I am indulging without going wildly off my diet in a way that's going to make me feel gross afterwards.
You should know going in that some of the recipes do contain dairy. I don't consider dairy Paleo ever, so I was a little disappointed to see things like a cheesecake that actually does contain cheese and sour cream.Read more ›
And the book is gorgeous to look at. Looking through the recipes at the stuff I COULD make, if I wanted to, is almost more fun than actually making and eating the food!
