    I ordered this book before it was published, and just received it.

    When buying cook books I fall into two categories: (1) Wanting lots of pictures, mainly so I can ignore most of the recipes and just use the pictures as inspiration, and (2) Wanting no pictures, but lots of quality recipe ideas.

    This book falls into the second category – there are no pictures. (Unless a clipart representation of a flame counts.)

    Instead you will find lots of recipes that conform to paleo guidelines. Luckily for those of us who would rather jump off a cliff (possibly fleeing a now-extinct large animal) than surrender our cheese and milk, the author acknowledges this fact and “won’t think any less of us for adding dairy where appropriate”. Praise Primal!

    There’s a decent explanation of what the paleo movement is at the beginning. “Controversial” ingredients are covered, explaining why they’re acceptable or not. While I understand the logic behind allowing stevia, personally it’s on my prohibited list. Several other commercial products are also referenced, which dogmatic purists may not appreciate. (I’ll allow canned coconut milk; that’s about as processed as I’ll go.)

    Ingredient-wise the recipes have got everything needed to be complete and tasty. (Disclaimer: the first thing I do when making new recipes is ignore the quantities, so I only ever gather the ingredients called-for and follow the general directions.) Some of them are very simple (bacon and brussels sprouts is a classic, after all) and others are more involved. The accompanying instructions are clear (though I’ve tried the method listed for mayo and ended up with not-mayo more times than I’ve ended up with mayo; providing the fix if it splits would have been a useful addition. If you find yourself there take a beaten room-temperature egg yolk, then add the failed mayo to it in tiny amounts, and beat furiously at all times until assumes a mayoey consistency.)

    Handily, nutritional analysis accompanies each listed recipe. The index also covers 8 pages, which is a nice change from some cookbooks that think you can cover culinary combinations from Abalone to Yogurt in two pages.

    I have one complaint (there’s always got to be one, hasn’t there). It would have been nice to see page references throughout the book accompanying the explanations and background-info. For example, page 127 “About Cauli-Rice” explains about the usage of cauliflower rice, which I’ve always used to sub for rice – it never dawned on me to use it as an orzo replacement, as mentioned – but where’s the recipe for it? Page 87. I’d have rather had inline page references than have to break my train of thought to go through the index. I don’t read recipe books front-to-back, instead I just jump in at a random section and then leaf through until I find something that hits my “yes, want that tonight” button.

    Wow! The hot cereal recipe is worth the price of the book, and that is only the beginning. Dana Carpender has triumphed once again and her common sense and easy to follow directions are priceless as a boon to harried paleo practitioners.

    Love the Paleo cookbook. I bought this one for my sister as a Christmas gift as we are all going on the Paleo lifestyle way of eating after Christmas. The recipes are very simple and anyone can do them. I like the cookbook because it gives me ideas that really are going to help us all get use to this way of cooking and use to the foods that can be used to maintain this lifestyle.
