Not only is Primal Cravings a beautiful book to look at, with gorgeous photos of food and just a well-made and thought out design of a book, the information contained in it is invaluable. Sources to get specific foods, why they don't include nut flours (thank you!) and why to eat this way. It's simple and concise and easy to understand.
But the recipes. Oh the recipes! They are the reason to get this book. As I sit here typing this I am munching on Sloppy Joe Meatballs (the second time I've made them) and wow, they are delicious. Meaty and just a little bit sweet, with a great tomato tang. This past weekend I made the Cuban burgers (complete with plantain 'buns') and Best Ever Pulled Pork (and ya know what? It is the best ever!). I've made the Gyro Taco Salad with Tzatziki guacamole, the Thai Chicken Meatballs, the Curry Turkey Burgers with Mango Slow. And more. Salads and sides? They're in there too...and so, so good. Snacks and desserts too. It's just a different spin on Primal Cooking and one that I will be definitely add to my cooking rotation.Read more ›
When I originally saw this book, I almost didn't buy it. The word 'cravings' threw me. I have spent the last two years getting rid of my cravings...not feeding them...why would I want a book that would change that? Plus, what could this book possibly have that my huge stack on my counter doesn't? Then I saw the recipe for the gyro inspired salad on Mark's Daily Apple and thought that I'd give it a shot.
What a wonderful surprise!! Not only is the book hardcover and absolutely gorgeous (somehow, I was expecting it to be paperback), but on my first flip-through, I saw at least 10 non-desert recipes that I wanted to try. That means 10 recipes totally different than I've been making for the last 2 years! I've now made 12 - 15 things from the book and all of them have been delicious. And the baked goods sans almond flour? Again, I was shocked. I have steered clear of most recipes containing coconut flour because with a lot of coconut flour, they don't agree with me (and they taste weird) but the ones in this book are fabulous. I started with the gingerbread muffins and I had to put half in the freezer so that my husband and I wouldn't gobble them all up in one sitting! (they freeze beautifully, by the way) I've been searching for a good waffle recipe since I went paleo and the strawberry ones in this book are heads and tails above anything else we've tried. The salads are wonderful too!Read more ›
Second, the recipes are delicious. I've made at least a dozen recipes so far and everything has been delicious. There is no almond flour used for any of the baking which is really nice as I try to stay away from so much nut flour in my cooking. Their new baking method, which I haven't seen anywhere else creates amazing pastries, biscuits, empanadas, bread & pizza crust that you will not believe is paleo once you taste it! I had stopped make paleo pizza completely because all the methods create a soggy crust with a heavy nut flavor. Not anymore. This one bakes up crispy and with no mealy textures or flavors from nut flours.
In addition to all the tasty baked goods, there are great breakfast recipes for on the go and delicious, easy to make entrees for dinner. They also have some great charts for easy lunch ideas. This book is really well rounded and makes a great addition to a paleo kitchen. You will not regret buying it!
Don't get me wrong - these are still "healthy" alternatives, and you won't find yourself mistaking them for something from your favorite patisserie. But often, that is a good thing: while many of the recipes in this book are intended to mimic traditional sweets, in some cases what you're getting is something completely new. Sure, it might look like a cookie or blondie, but it tastes quite different, and is excellent in its own right - as a new creation.
The carrot-cake sandwich cookies are truly incredible (a hint: use the honey in the cookie and the maple syrup in the filling, and try cutting the "shortening" in half), as are the dirty blondies (try adding a few chunks of 85% chocolate and/or some chopped macadamias).
As for the savory items, many of them are quite good. The pulled pork recipe is actually one of the best we've had. And many of them (the empanadas, for example) are quite excellent without the "bread" component.
Weaknesses? A few. In general, we've found most of the desert recipes a tad sweet for our strict primal diet. However, that is an issue that effects every primal cookbook we've tried. The beauty of these gluten-free recipes is that you can typically omit quite a bit of the sweetener from a recipe without adversely affecting the consistency of the finished product.Read more ›
