I received my copy of "Paleo Slow Cooking" by Chrissy Gower today and I am slightly disappointed. While the majority of the recipes do look tasty I personally feel as a cookbook this particular book has a few major missteps. The first being a heavy use of "Penzeys" brand spices and El Pato brand sauces. A majority of the recipes in this book call for the use of specific Penzeys blends with no side-note on how to replicate the blend on your own by utilizing your own personal spices. I suppose I could go to Penzeys website, read the ingredients listed for the spice blend and reconstruct it at home... but that adds another step for me when attempting to prepare a dish. I feel this is a serious disservice to purchasers of the book. The use of El Pato brand sauces is not as prevalent but my complaint remains the same. The only explanation the author provides of the El Pato sauce is "Use the green can". I would have preferred a description of exactly what type of sauce it was so I could substitute with a brand I know and trust although personally I'd rather make the sauce myself than rely on a canned product.

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.

I agree with what a lot of the other reviewers have stated in terms of disapointments in the book. I preordered it. I have bought slow cooker books in the past, and was so disapointed in their use of canned/bottled/premade "food" all thrown in a pot and heated up. I have been eating paleo for a couple years now, and felt that this would bring the two worlds together nicely. Paleo pretty much is no sugar (something we are very hardcore about in our house) and no processed foods. How could this book not rock with those as the basis? Well...

I'm going to sound nit-picky, and if this review bothers you, then this is the book for you and it's where you are in your food journey. Some of you are more like me and care a little bit more. So here are the details that bothered me.

1) I'm on the GAPS diet. Not a big deal. Very compatible with paleo. Only problem is sweet potatoes aren't allowd on the GAPS diet (sad... I know!). This book uses them A LOT. I think it might possibly be her favorite veggie. It's listed in 7 recipes in the index, but I counted an aditional 5 that include sweet potatoes that aren't even listed in the index. That makes a total of 12 recipes that call for them. I can substitute I realize, but just throwing it out there if you are a low carb person, or for some reason can't handle them, they are used pretty heavily.

2) She really doesn't worry about added sugar. This bothered me a lot. On page 118 is her recipe for BBQ sauce (one of the FEW recipes for something, not just calling for a bottle!). I was excited she included a recipe for BBQ sauce until I read it. It calls for 2 cups of organic ketchup. UGH! The second ingredient on the label is sugar in that stuff, even the organic. Then it also calls for 1/2 cup honey with that. UGH!

One of the biggest complaints of eating Paleo is that it's expensive and it takes forever to prep/cook food. As someone that doesn't really enjoy cooking, or cleaning up afterwards, it's nice to have a resource that provides recipes that are both easy and delicious. In addition, Robb Wolf, author of Paleo Solution, offered some interesting insight as to why slow cooking is healthier than alternative cooking methods. As it turns out slow cooking is the healthiest way to cook food. In a nutshell (at least how I understood it) slow cooking helps preserve the nutrient content of vegetables and meat, and because everything is mixed together you actually you end up ingesting a lot of the nutrients that are typically lost with conventional cooking methods.

From the book: Robb Wolf - "Unlike baking or fry- ing, which necessitate relatively high temperatures (making those nasty polycyclic thingies), slow cooking occurs at reasonably low temperatures so that you don't see the wacky kitchen chemistry that is common with other approaches."

The recipes are broken up into 5-categories:Breakfast, Soups and Stews, Main Dishes, Side Dishes, and Desserts.

The breakfast recipes consist of frittata dishes, which are easy, fast (2-hours), and taste great (much better than when I attempt them in the oven). The soups and stews include both traditional and unique dishes (I particularly like the Jalapeno Sweet Potato Chowder and Coconut Cream of Broccoli Soup), and the main courses include heartier meals like Boneless Pork Ribs, Beef Brisket, and Yellow Curry Chicken. The side dishes are simple, but great because it gives you ideas of what to with the slow cooker meals that are quick and easy, which is the whole point of the book.
