About the Author
Surprisingly, Melissa Joulwan’s favorite vegetable is cabbage. Her favorite spice is cumin. Her favorite book is Jane Eyre. Her favorite city is Prague, and her favorite band is Social Distortion. You might have known all of that already if you follow her blog The Clothes Make The Girl. The Clothes Make the Girl is an unusual title for a blog that’s about her tales of triumph and failure in the gym, in the kitchen, in life. She admits to being a sucker for the perfect little black dress and stompy black boots and sparkly what-whats. She may have started the blog going one way and wound up in entirely another. She says that her desire to be fit and healthy is almost matched by her love of punk fashion and high glamour. Well Fed is her second book. Her first is Rollergirl: Totally True Tales from the Track, a memoir of her experiences as one of the founders of the Texas Rollergirls, the original Flat Track Roller Derby league. She has appeared on the Today Show and Good Morning America – in her roller skates and fishnets. These days, she’s hung up her skates, and her workouts are just as likely to include yoga and meditation, as lifting heavy things and trying to stay ahead of the CrossFit stopwatch. She lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband Dave and their cat Smudge.

Our first recipe was her "The best chicken you'll ever eat." Boy was it delicious. My significant other who has a cooking background doubted some of her methods, but we decided to stay true to the recipe with some tiny modifications to give it a shot. We ate the chicken with her mayo recipe, which we turned into both her ranch dressing and her creamy Italian dressing and put it all on a bed of salad. Let me tell you, we ate in silence while watching our current favorite show, and when we finished we turned to each other and both agreed that that was freaking delicious meal! To top it all off there were a ton of leftover chicken and the next day it tasted even better.
Our second adventure was her Moroccan meatballs over a bed of Cauliflower rice pilaf (with apricots, raisins, and pine nuts). We used only 1 lb lamb and mixed it with 1 lb ground beef (to help our wallets). The meatballs didn't look like the picture which made me sad, but they did have very good flavor. Plus, the sweetness from the dried fruit in the rice was an amazing touch. Again, like the chicken this dish tasted so much better the second day. However, it was not pretty all mixed together in my lunch container at work. It looked like mush and I had trouble stomaching it until I realized how delicious it was tasting.
Today we decided to go with the Cinnamon Beef stew (we had to forgo the gremolata that was suggested because we forgot to buy the orange). We still had a half portion of unused cauliflower rice from the meatballs so we made that into her alternate confetti rice recipe. Just like the other two recipes we doubted it while we were cooking (when will we learn?). But once you sit down and have everything on a plate in front of you it all works out so well. Our one complaint about this recipe is that the cook time was only 90 minutes for a beef stew! This took almost an hour more than that to get the meat tender. And we did make another small modification of using beef broth instead of water.
All in all, we are very happy with this purchase. So far all 3 entrees, 2 sides, and 3 sauces have come out incredibly well, and we are excited to make are next recipe in a few days. We're looking at the Meatza Pie with her Greek broccoli. The picture doesn't look too appetizing, but she has given me every reason to trust her so far, so we're expecting tasty things from this next dish.
I have never before cooked every recipe in a cookbook. I am committing that I will be making every single recipe in this book before the end of 2012. Yes - it is that good. In fact, I have never reviewed any of the many books I have purchased from Amazon, but this author deserves a shout out. Her writing style is authentic and engaging, and the information she shares is fresh and useful (did I mention fun and edgy as well?). I will be buying multiple copies today so I can gift them to some very lucky people. Thank you for your hard work in putting this lovely book together, Melissa Joulwan. You are a kitchen goddess.
The quality of the book itself is not bad but it's not the greatest. A lot of reviewers were complaining that their book fell apart and while mine is holding together just fine, I would say that it's not the best quality of cover/material but that's minor and not the reason I'm giving it a 4 star.
My big annoyance with this book - which my friend who LOVES the book also agrees - is her prep times: 5 minutes!!! Whatever. The prep times are so off the charts that it's not even funny. Anything that says 5 minutes to prep, set aside a good 30 to 45 minutes IF you have help in the kitchen. And there's no 5 minute clean up with what you need to get these meals ready but the meals are delicious.
We used her spice mix and her sweet potato with pecans (well she uses squash but it's okay to replace it) and one of her meats. I also made the Waldorf Tuna salad today (I added some lemon juice too), it was all very delicious. The recipes ARE delicious, no doubt about it, and super healthy because, well, they are Paleo baby!
There are very few dessert recipes here so if you want to feed your sweet tooth with approved paleo desserts, look elsewhere. Overall, I like how she helps you prepare for your meals in advance, but we have yet to do the whole weekly cook-up.
