I have been using this cookbook for months, and I’ve made a ton of the recipes. I knew that I loved it, but this past weekend (on our Weekend Getaway) I discovered just how much I love it. On a peaceful, rainy afternoon in the mountains, I curled up with a blanket in a reclining chair, coffee in hand, and read this cookbook from cover to cover.
Who reads cookbooks like they’re novels? Me; that’s who.
And this food novel is beautiful…
Beautifully written, beautifully photographed, beautifully compiled. If I could choose one word to describe this cookbook, it would be “romantic.” As I read it, I felt peaceful, comfortable, and a little reminiscent. The authors take so many familiar, classic recipes and “make them Paleo.” And the best part? Almost all of them are incredibly simple and easy to make.
It is clear that Bill and Hayley poured their hearts into this collection of recipes. There are stories or memories behind most of them, and they provide variations and cooking tips throughout.
My favorite recipes in the book [so far] are Bill and Hayley’s famous Chocolate Chip Cookies, and their amazing Coconut Flour Pancakes. I am also really excited to try the Mint Lamburgers, Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic, Red Curry Chicken Skewers, and so many others. I’m actually considering doing a “Julie and Julia” type of challenge with this cookbook. It’s that good.
In addition to the fantastic cookbook, I am really impressed with Bill and Haley. From the way they communicate on their Facebook page, to the language of their blog, they just seem real. They aren’t pretentious; they just genuinely want people to eat healthfully AND heartily.
