I love this book! First of all, it's GORGEOUS. I love it when cookbooks show you what the final product is supposed to look like so there are no surprises. I just look through it and drool on the pages when I don't feel like cooking. (Just kidding... sorta...) Second of all, THE FOOD! The author lives near where I grew up, so she put in all of my favorite childhood comfort foods with a grain free twist. Everything I have made so far has been fantastic. I really think I'll be cooking my way through the entire cookbook. Next up is the pumpkin roll!Update 3/19/16: I lied. I still haven't made the Pumpkin roll. I really want to, though. I've made the sausage gravy at least 3 times. My husband finally got to taste some last time I made it and loved it. I just made the General Tsos Chicken and it was fantastic! I've never fried anything before (I usually delegate to someone less afraid of hot oil), but it was so easy and delicious that I may be able to fry my own donuts. I'm pretty sure there is a recipe for those, too (I don't have it in front of me.)Oh, one thing to mention. I've made the noodles twice (well, me once and my husband once) and they didn't turn out as expected following the ingredient amounts. I believe we each had to add more flour to get the right consistency. I will point out that I'm using Bob's Red Mill or Kroger almond flour and that I'm pretty confident that that is the issue. If you aren't very good at adapting recipes to make them work with your inferior ingredients, then make sure you buy the recommended ingredients!
I gave it 3 stars because 1-It did not have nutritional breakdowns on each recipe 2-I was under the impression that it was recipes that were free of cane sugar as well as grains, and that's not so. I probably read something from another cookbook that said that. I would not have purchased if I knew most of the recipes included Arrowroot flour and or cane sugar. I doubt I'll use this cookbook. 3- on a better note...it was done very well, laid out nicely quality paper and photo's wonderful. There is a few recipes that do not include arrowroot starch or potato starch like the Southwest Quesadillas that actually looks great. I'll do the nutritional breakdown and decide whether I will make it or not. Just wish those making cookbooks would add the nutritional info.There was no way to preview this book prior to buying it with the exception of the cover.
What a great little cookbook! Something about this sweet book is just SO user friendly. Some of the Paleo/grainfree cookbooks out there come across as pretentious and are filled with elegant photos of super fancy food I just would just never attempt to prepare on an everyday basis. These are recipes we're already familiar with just made grain free. I also appreciate that Hayley didn't find it necessary to stick to stick Paleo for those of us who can tolerate dairy here and there, this is more realistic for my family. Im also glad to pick up a grain free cookbook whose dessert section doesn't take up the majority of the book, I get it people, paleo treats are yummy but stepping away from excess sugar (wherever it comes from) will do us all good. I have tried several recipes and all have been great. She made making fried calamari look easy so I gave it a shot and WOW, who knew restaurant style fried calamari made even BETTER at home. 5 stars for sure!
This is the cook book to get if you want to eat all your favorites but without using grains. Hayley does all the work for you! Easy to understand explanations of why cooking without grain is a more healthy alternative to traditional ingredients. The recipes are easy to understand, organized well, and beautifully photographed. The several that I have already tried were beyond delicious. There is a good index and one thing I demand in a good cookbook-photos of the dish. Not only are they beautifully photographed but Hayley took them herself of her own recipes so I know they are honest. I like to see what the dish is supposed to look like! There are recipes for every occasion as well as snacks and kids items. A substitution list is given for frequent allergens found in foods and a healthy alternative. She includes a chapter on why going grain free is a healthier choice. Do yourself a favor and go for a grain free and healthier lifestyle; let this cookbook be a good start.
This book should come with a warning-- do not look at while hungry! Without Grain was the perfect introduction to a grain-free lifestyle for someone who does not have a lot of time to cook. She covers everything-- from the basics to the more complex-- and breaks it down along the way so it's not overwhelming. The cauliflower rice is SO easy, delicious, and goes with everything-- and don't even get me started on the pepperoni rolls! Counting down the days until my cheat day to try these desserts!
This cookbook, "without grain" is wonderful!! I am sensitive to grains and this book gives me the opportunity to eat some of the foods I grew up with in a grain free version. Of the recipes I have tried, the end product does not taste like most of the gluten free products that I have purchased off the shelf. The book is very hands on with many hints and suggestions to help even the experienced cook. They say we eat first with our eyes and the photos in this book will make you so hungry. The ingredients are easily found in most grocery stores and most things you probably already have in your pantry. I would recommend this grain free cookbook to anyone that wants to eat healthier.
