In my opinion it was also a mistake to not have pictures of how she describes lining the crockpot with parchment paper. The instructions are clear enough, but they would have been crystal clear with an accompanying photo set, especially since a few of the deserts and practically all of the breakfast recipes call for this particular step.
Lastly, I also felt that a number of the recipes can be prepared quicker and with one less item to clean on the stove top. For a slow cooker book to have recipes that are quicker to prepare on the stove without the headache of cleaning the crockpot just doesn't seem well thought out to me.
Overall, I feel this is a decent cookbook with good recipes that rely too heavily on specific branded ingredients with out giving the reader alternatives, or a breakdown so they can use ingredients they may personally already own. I feel someone new to the Paleo lifestyle or cooking in general may feel they need to buy the specific brands she lists in the recipes in order to prepare the food presented in this book and that in my opinion feels a little too much like a commercial and less like a Paleo cookbook.
However, if I may point out one weakness to this book...
Roughly 1/3 of the recipes (forgive me, I only did a comparison on the soups and stews section where 6/17 fell into this category) call for "Named products"...The Traditional Minestrone Soup I'm making today has "1/4 teaspoon Penzeys Mural of Flavor" listed as an ingredient. I looked up the contents of Penzeys Mural of Flavor and it lists: "Hand mixed from shallots, onion, garlic, thyme, rosemary, basil, coriander, lemon peel, citric acid, black pepper, chives, green peppercorns, dill weed, and orange peel."
My problem with this is simple...I want to make the soup _today_...not after waiting a week to get "Penzeys Mural of Flavor" delivered...must I really look through the book finding all the recipes I might want to try and order all their strange and wonderful spices/ingredients before I can really make them?
Instead of including pages listing "Cooking Utensils" (under which heading is included "Bowls" with 3 same graphic of different sizes labeled "small mixing bowl" "medium mixing bowl" and "large mixing bowl") etc...How about including pages of, oh I don't know, maybe "Penzeys Mural of Flavor" recipe? Refer people there in your recipes that call for it...or tell them they can also buy it at Penzeys online store?
I think that there isn't much value in this book, unless you are a really inexperienced cook. Also, some of the recipes were confusing - for example, the ingredient list calls for baking powder but the actual instructions say to use baking soda. I was really disappointed. I'm sure I will find a few recipes that I can use, but I expected more value than that.
