Have you ever read, Sarah Dessen’s book, The Moon and More? I am addicted to Young Adult fiction, just ask our local librarian. I have read and loved every one of her books. Sarah Dessen has created a town in her books and if you read them in order, certain characters reoccur in each book. But anyway, back to the topic at hand.
My husband is on a low carb diet and sometimes that and the Paleo diet go hand in hand. The Paleo Chef By Pete Evans is not one of those times. However, I’m not going to denigrate the book based on that statement alone.
I love the photography in the cookbook and the recipes sound absolutely amazing. However, most of these ingredients would require a special (not to mention costly) trip to the store for us. Plus, having two young children on top of that, I can’t see The Paleo Chef keeping a permanent place in our family meal plan.
While the recipes are visually beautiful and seem relatively painless to make, I just can’t get past all the extra ingredients that I would be forced to purchase. I’ve heard that you can do the Paleo diet on a budget and I am in no way knocking the diet or Mr. Evans’ cooking for the matter. It’s just doesn’t work for my family.
Recipes like Grilled Wild Salmon, Raw Zucchini Lasagna, and Lamb Meatballs grace the pages and if I had a bigger food budget, I would definitely go for it! I liked how he added a little introduction about each recipe as well. So, all in all, a beautifully done cookbook. Not for the budget conscious though.

I love collecting cookbooks and I have a ton of them. Some of my favorite cookbooks are ones that are modeled after a TV show or a book series. My sister loves the show, Portlandia, so when The Portlandia Cookbook: Cook Like A Local came out, I jumped at the chance to review it!
Did you know that there are 940 Saturdays from the time your child is born until he or she turns eighteen? I sure didn’t. But apparently, Dr. Rotbart did.
I used to be a Snack Girl follower a long time ago. I ended up following her on twitter and started reading her blog. Then sadly to say, I lost interest. Lisa Cain tries very hard to be funny and falls flat. I just wasn’t seeing the allure. However, some of her recipes were tasty and pretty easy. So when I saw that she published a cookbook, I was willing to give it a go. I also had high hopes since, like I said before, I really enjoyed her healthy recipes.
I’ve been a big Liane Moriarty fan since I read What Alice Forgot. Her characters are so realistic and honest that I couldn’t put it down! This book did not disappoint.
