Book Review: The Paleo Kitchen: Finding Primal Joy in Modern Cooking


     I just got this book yesterday, but I have not been able to put it down since. It's by Juli Bauer, who writes the blog is PaleoOMG.com,  and George Bryant, who writes the blog CivilizedCavemanCooking.com.

     This is more than just a cookbook. It contains checklists, getting to know your body, and lots of tips. Plus it's all done in the fun style of a couple of people who love Paleo and have fun working together.

     Since I just got this book, I have yet to try any of the recipes, but we're going to try the slow cooker ketchup today. There are so many more recipes in this book that I'm looking forward to trying, including: Banana Bread Waffles, Baked Banana Chip Crusted French Toast, Vanilla White Peach Muffins, [sweet potato] Biscuits & Gravy, Bacon Sweet Potato Hash with Apples & Pears, Sweet Plantain Guacamole, Candied Bacon, Twice-Baked Stuffed Butternut Squash, Shredded Pork Meatloaf, Loaded BBQ Sweet Potatoes, Four-Layer Beef & Bacon Casserole, Honey-Mustard Chicken Thighs, Spaghetti Squash Chicken Fritters, Shrimp Scampi, Honey Dijon & Rosemary Grilled Sweet Potatoes, Dill Butternut Squash Fries, Parsnip Puree, Afternoon Pick-Me-Up (Coffee Smoothie), Honey Pistachio Ice Cream, Chocolate Cookie Ice Cream, Macadamia Chocolate Chip Cookies, Black & White Cake, Chocolate Coffee Bread Pudding, Blueberry BBQ Sauce, Tangy BBQ Sauce, and Coconut Butter.

     Not only do these sound delicious, but this book is beautifully done, so they look delicious as well. I'm really looking forward to trying out and tweaking these recipes!
