I had high hopes for this cookbook as I'd been waiting for it to be released and suffered through the many delays. I assumed that those extra 5 months would yield and flawless cookbook full of gorgeous food photography and delicious food. Unfortunately, only the delicious food was found.

Over the last couple of weeks, we have prepared several recipes from the cookbook. We have yet to be disappointed by the finished product, but the recipe directions and lack of photographs leave much to be desired. Here are examples of the lack of clarity in the directions:

-No note on when to add ingredients - Pear Ginger Pork Chops - no note to add cinnamon and allspice
-Vague instructions - Paleo Chicken Adobo - "Put the chicken and all the other ingredients into a bowl", but really means all except the ghee. It made for an interesting marinade when my husband prepared it with the ghee included
-No information on how to prepare a given ingredient - Paleo Beef Casserole - garlic sliced, crushed, smashed, minced? Chicken with Butternut Squash and Figs - leave chicken breasts whole? Cube? If whole, shred at the end?

We have found flaws in all but one recipe we have prepared thus far. I would definitely not recommend this for a novice or beginner cook because of the room for interpretation left by the lack of explicit instruction. One would think that the delays in publishing would have afforded ample time for recipe editing and testing.

Here's the rub. I can't quit this cookbook because the food is delicious. I find myself reaching for it as I make my weekly meal plan and including at least 2-3 meals from it. As someone following an Autoimmune Protocol, I was pleasantly surprised to find at least a few recipes in each section that do not include nightshades.

I just purchased this book hoping to make my life easier, sigh, too much cut and paste has screwed up the recipes. The first recipe had partial instructions from some other recipe, and my second attempt has differing amounts in instructions than in the ingredients list in addition to some of the worst writing I've ever seen to the extent of gibberish. I have a feeling the editors and publisher are to blame and have put a black eye on this book for me. I won't order any books from this publisher again rest assured.

As others have said, this cookbook is confusing, and it all stems from extremely poor editing. Let me give you an example. This is the first step in a recipe that appears fairly early in the book:
"> Sauté onion in a 2 lb lean ground beef 1/2 cup sliced pimento stuffed green olive heavy pan over medium high for 5 minutes until translucent."
This is an example of the simple, but unfortunately common, errors that permeate the book. For those who are curious, it should read:
"> Sauté onion in a heavy pan over medium high [heat] for 5 minutes, until translucent."

By the way, ground beef and green olives both appear in this recipe, but in different quantities, and the olives aren't stuffed.

Virtually every recipe has some sort of typo, or the ingredients list is organized horribly, or a step is missing. In most paleo cookbooks, the oil or type of fat is specific, since some have strong flavors. In this recipe, no fat or oil is listed at all, while In another recipe, the first instruction simply says sauté the vegetables, and butter is listed last in the ingredients list. That was annoying, as I just reached for olive oil and was cooking, before I realized I was supposed to sauté in butter. It changes the flavor of the dish, and anyone who knows how to cook or write recipes knows that you list ingredients in the order that you use them.

Another minus is that the author loves to sauté things prior to putting them in the slow cooker. The buyer should be aware that many of these dishes require 20-30 minutes of prep and pre-cooking before letting the slow cooker finish. ALSO, and this is a HUGE pet peeve of mine, the author wants you to brown most of the meat.

I can't understand all these glowing reviews. The book is very pretty with pictures of all the recipes, and it contains a good overview of eating paleo and nutrition tidbits spread throughout the book. But that's about all I have to say that's positive.

Things I don't like....they definitely did NOT proofread. We have made 5 recipes so far. In every single one there are ingredients listed that aren't in the instructions anywhere, ingredients in the instructions not on the list, or what looks to be part of another recipe's ingredient list inserted mid-sentence in the instructions. I have just kind of guessed what I thought it was supposed to be.

This would be okay if the recipes where any good. But every one has been "okay." Edible, but nothing we'd bother to make again (or serve anyone else). We've been eating strict paleo for a few years now,and cooking for a very long time,so we've started trying to amp them up a bit (adding more spices, deglazing the pan when it calls for browning the meat - why wouldn't you do this if your already browning the meat? missing stuff like this makes me think the authors haven't been cooking very long)but it hasn't helped much.

Oh, and I REALLY dislike that there is no recipe list under the table of content headings (i.e. what beef recipes are under the beef section?). There is an alphabetical index in the back, but that isn't useful unless you know the exact name of a particular recipe you're looking for. I like to be able to quickly scan and see what I've tried/get ideas without flipping page by page.

We'll keep trying recipes from it, although I usually half them now to not waste expensive meat, etc. (we buy free-range) on something that likely will just be okay. But if you're new to paleo, don't get this book!
